In my 35 years of gaming experience, I have had countless peripherals of all kinds (keyboards, mice, headsets, etc.) in use. Since I’ve been in Esports, I have to say that I’ve generally always used the highest quality peripherals.
The company KLIM Technologies approached me and asked me to take a closer look at some of their products and test their quality. For this purpose, they provided me with several devices free of charge.
I have already published individual reviews for both mice. This article is about which type of gamer the two mice are suitable for.
You can find the single reviews and all other articles about KLIM devices I tested here on our page for reviews.
When working with KLIM Technologies, it was important to me that I could write my honest opinion independently, which is also explicitly desired by KLIM Technologies.
Well then, let’s go!
Both mice are explicit gaming mice. I used the mice for several weeks, each in heavy daily use, both gaming and my everyday activities on a Windows PC.
This means the mice were put through a hardcore test with 12-16 hours of daily use.
Note: This article was written in English. Translations into other languages may not provide the same linguistic quality. We apologize for grammatical and semantic errors.
Design and Shape
Both mice have a symmetrical shape that is basically suitable for left- and right-handers, but the two thumb buttons on both mice are on the left side and cannot be remounted, so lefties cannot use them as well as righties then.
Both mice are also very similar in terms of size. Both mice have the same number of buttons, and both mice glide excellently, the KLIM AIM on two large gliding feet (front and back), the KLIM Blaze Pro with 4 smaller gliding feet (at each corner of the mouse).
However, the first clear difference can be found in the weight.
According to our own measurements, the KLIM AIM weighs 115g without cable, while the KLIM Blaze Pro only weighs 86g.
For friends of light mice, this is a clear point for the KLIM Blaze Pro.
Other differences are the textured side surfaces of the KLIM AIM and the more valuable-looking mouse wheel of the KLIM Blaze Pro. But, overall, we can say that the KLIM Blaze Pro feels a bit more valuable in all areas.
Both mice feature RGB lighting with all the usual RGB functions. From permanent glow to specific flashing patterns and, of course, different colors, permanent and changing. Controllable via the KLIM software.
The most obvious difference between the two mice is, of course, the wireless technology (2.4 GHz) of the KLIM Blaze Pro, which is absolutely impressive.
I could not find any difference in quality compared to the wireless technology of other high-quality brands such as Logitech.
For charging, the KLIM Blaze Pro has a charging station that you can use, or you can just charge the mouse directly on the cable and keep playing. One charge takes about 3 hours.
The KLIM AIM, on the other hand, comes with a very good 1.8m cable. I used the KLIM AIM with a BenQ Zowie CAMADE II, so the cable was no handicap at all for me.
The sensor is the same on both mice and equally excellent on both.
Nothing more needs to be said about the sensor. The PMW 3320 is one of the top sensors on the market and brings perfect precision.
Both mice come in stylish packaging that is common in the industry. Enclosed is a small envelope from the manufacturer. It contains some very nice stickers from KLIM Technologies and a letter.
I don’t want to reveal the contents of the letter, but just so much, it shows that at least some people at KLIM Technologies have a lot of humor in marketing. 😀
Other than that, the accessories on both mice are clear but perfectly adequate.
Here we have:
- Also, a quick start guide
- A charging cable for the mouse. The charging cable is a USB-C charging cable and can thus also be used for other devices with this port.
- Additionally, a charging station for the mouse is included. So you can charge the mouse directly via cable and continue playing with the cable or connect the charging cable to the charging station and put the mouse on the charging station to charge when needed.
- Last but not least, a USB receiver is included, which belongs to the computer when using the mouse or can alternatively be attached to the charging station, which is then connected to the PC via a charging cable.
Fun Fact for Hardcore Gamers only: Masakari is currently intensively testing the Azeron Gaming Keypad. This innovative input device could be an advantage for FPS games on PC and console. Just take a look at it on Amazon. We will publish a review soon.
KLIM Technologies offers its own software for each of its gaming mice. You can download and install this software from the KLIM website.
It’s important to note that the mice will work without the software, but usually, you’ll want to adjust a few things on the mice.
The functions of the two software are very similar. Let’s go through the features briefly:
- Key assignment: You can assign all 6 keys freely
- Polling Rate: Has 4 levels (125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1000Hz)
- 6 DPI levels: There are differences here. On the KLIM Blaze Pro, you can freely define the DPI in increments of 100 up to 10,000 DPI at each level and assign an RGB color to each level, indicating which level you currently have activated (you can change the level via button). With the KLIM AIM, on the other hand, you can only freely define the DPI in steps of 250 up to 7,000 DPI at each level (here, too, the level can be changed by pressing the button).
- Mouse sensitivity, scroll speed, and double click speed
- Macros can be set up
- RGB lighting: colors and effects can be set. Here you can also deactivate the illumination completely.

In this category, both mice do not differ much.
At less than $30, the KLIM AIM is very affordable for the technology that goes into it, making it the narrow winner in this category for me.
With the KLIM Blaze Pro, you get for the equally cheap (at least for a wireless gaming mouse) $50, in addition to a very good wireless technology with corresponding accessories and slightly better quality with less weight, which justifies the slightly higher price entirely.
The main difference between the two mice is, of course, the wireless technology in the KLIM Blaze Pro. But, apart from that, the KLIM Blaze Pro is a bit more valuable in terms of build quality and also 30g lighter.
Nevertheless, the KLIM AIM can perform very well since it has an excellent sensor and perfect buttons (Omron), just like the KLIM Blaze Pro. And in terms of price-performance ratio, the KLIM AIM thus also tops the already excellent price-performance ratio of the KLIM Blaze Pro for me.
As mentioned in my single review of the KLIM AIM, I prefer the KLIM AIM because I quickly found a perfect grip for the mouse. However, this is very individual (hands are very different from person to person).
In general, I would say that if you want a wireless gaming mouse, you can go for the KLIM Blaze Pro without hesitation, and if you prefer wired mice or have a minimal budget, you absolutely can’t go wrong with the KLIM AIM.
I was able to perform very well with both mice during my test, which was mainly due to the technically flawless performance of both mice, sliding top, precision top, everything else is a matter of taste and personal preference 🙂
So, in conclusion, I can classify both gaming mice as absolutely Esports-ready and thus suitable for ambitious gamers.
Due to the very low prices compared to competing products, I can also recommend both mice to casual gamers, depending on preference with or without cable.
