Best Mouse for Logic Pro x – People have been espousing the Logitech G Pro Wireless’ virtues for more than two years. It’s become incredibly popular even though its $150 price tag is rarely discounted. Enthusiasts have taken to modding the original to get its weight down rather than simply buying a new mouse; that’s a testament to its lasting appeal.
There will still be a market for the G Pro Wireless after the Superlight’s launch. That’s partly because of preference. Some people simply don’t care for ultra-lightweight gaming mice. It’s also partly due to Logitech’s decision to ditch the additional side buttons, making the G Pro X Superlight a harder sell to lefties.
Luckily the Superlight’s introduction can help make the G Pro Wireless a bit more affordable for those left-handed gamers. Logitech’s priced the new model at $150 and dropped the G Pro Wireless’ price to $130. That isn’t earth-shattering, but it’s a welcome change.

Best Mouse for Logic Pro x – BUYER’S GUIDE
The G Pro X Superlight pack’s Logitech’s latest HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) sensor. It purportedly offers a maximum CPI of 25,600 with “zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration,” as well as a tracking speed of 400 IPS and up to 40g of acceleration. It was also designed alongside the company’s Lightspeed wireless 2.4 GHz wireless dongle technology to offer a mix of performance and power efficiency.
What does all that mean? Well, in practice, it means that nobody should have to worry about the Superlight’s performance even though it relies on a wireless connection. I think we’ve left a lot of concerns about wireless mice behind–thanks in no small part to the G Pro Wireless–but it’s worth repeating for anyone who’s still wondering, “Can wireless gaming mice really be trusted?”
When using the ultralight HK Gaming Mira-M, I barely notice that its cable is there. Despite that, it’s still going to be hard to go back to using a wired mouse after my time with the G Pro X Superlight. Even the slightest bit of drag, resistance, or rebounding upon realizing I’ve pulled the mouse too far back sticks out now that I’m used to the Superlight.
But the combination of low weight and wireless connectivity isn’t the only thing the Superlight has going for it when it comes to gaming. Logitech also changed the mouse’s PTFE feet to offer more coverage, and it can be expanded even further by swapping out the circular cover on the bottom of the mouse. The result is a smooth glide that complements the Superlight’s other standout features.
All of those features made it easier than ever to click on heads–or, if we’re being honest with each other, torsos–in competitive shooters like Valorant, as well as simple aim training tools, like Aim Lab. The only real problem? I kept banging the Superlight against my keyboard because flicking to a target was so much more responsive than I’m yet used to.
The side buttons were also easy to use, and I didn’t notice any pre- or post-travel while I was playing. Unfortunately, the G Pro X Superlight’s scroll wheel feels like a downgrade from the G Pro Wireless. Sometimes it seemed like a scroll wouldn’t register even though I felt a bump and heard a click, and the scroll wheel button is also somewhat mushy, but the latter didn’t affect my gameplay much.
The G Pro X Superlight uses Logitech’s G Hub software (more on that below). With that app, you can see the approximate length of time remaining before the mouse will need to be recharged and how much energy it’s currently drawing. Unlike many other companies, Logitech represents this charge level with an actual percentage, rather than an ambiguous battery icon that offers very little information.
G Hub also estimates the length of time max charge will run, and in my review unit’s case, that proved to be about 72 hours.
Like its predecessor, the G Pro X Superlight is rechargeable over an included MicroUSB to USB Type-A cable. Logitech has notably not upgraded to the faster and more ubiquitous USB-C, although this likely would’ve upped the price on an already expensive mouse. You can also opt for Logitech’s pricey Powerplay mat that can charge the G Pro X Superlight while it’s in use.
Features and Softw
The Superlight relies on the Logitech G Hub software for setting CPI levels, recording macros and customizing buttons. Changes are saved to the mouse’s onboard memory, which can store up to five different profiles. Logitech offers two modes of operation for the Superlight: an “on-board memory mode” uses stored profiles and disables G Hub, and when that mode is turned off, you can once again use the software to modify various aspects of the mouse.
Logitech ships the Superlight with five CPI levels: 400, 800, 1,600, 3,200 and 6,400. There’s no way to change the CPI without assigning a button in G Hub, so if you can’t download the app right away, you’ll be left guessing the CPI level being used. The same goes for the report rate: The Superlight offers 125, 250, 500, and 1,000 Hz options.
Some odds and ends: Logitech included some grip tape, additional feet, and a range extender for the Lightspeed receiver. There’s also a charging cable that can double as a wired connection in a pinch. It seems identical to the cable found with the G Pro Wireless. Would it have been nice to get a braided cable instead? Yeah. Is it a big deal? Not really, especially for people who buy a Logitech Powerplay-compatible mat that can charge the Superlight while it’s in use.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best mouse to use with Logic Pro X?
I’m currently using an Apple Magic Trackpad, and while I love it for scrolling, it’s not the best for clicking and dragging, e.g. like clicking on a fader and sliding it up or down. The fader moves fine, but I find that when I take off the finger I’m scrolling with, the fader moves again due to applying uneven pressure with the other finger I’m using to hold the “button” down, if that makes sense.
Enter the Logitech G Pro X Superlight ($150, shipping December 3). It ups the ante by shaving 0.70 ounces of weight while bumping up the sensor specs. Has Logitech really improved one of the best wireless mouse options available to gamers today?
