The Glorious Model O Wireless is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse. It's a wireless version of the Glorious Model O and it remains very light despite having a battery built-in. It has a different sensor compared to the wired variant and the new Glorious BAMF sensor has a wider CPI range that you can adjust in smaller increments. This mouse is very well-built and even though it has a honeycomb body, it feels solid. It's very comfortable and suitable for large hands using any grip, but it may be too big for those with small hands. The virgin-grade PTFE feet provide a very smooth gliding experience. Unfortunately, despite it being a wireless model, it's not ideal for use on-the-go because it lacks Bluetooth support and doesn't have a slot to store its USB receiver. Currently, it's a bit hard to find and it seems that you can only purchase it directly from the Glorious website.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is very good for office use. It's very well-built and comfortable to use, especially for those with medium-to-large-sized hands. You can reprogram any of its buttons, but sadly, its scroll wheel doesn't offer left/right tilt options and can't be unlocked for infinite scrolling.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is excellent for FPS gaming. It's lightweight, has low click latency, and the high-quality feet provide a smooth gliding experience. You can adjust the CPI in small increments, but the sensor is a bit inconsistent. It has excellent build quality and feels very comfortable to use as well.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is decent for MMO gaming. You can reprogram any of its six buttons, but its two side buttons may not be enough for some MMO gamers. It has low click latency, a wide CPI range, and you can adjust its CPI in small increments. It also has a high maximum polling rate.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is excellent for ultra-light gaming. It's very light, and the virgin-grade PTFE feet provide a smooth gliding experience. Click latency is low, and it has a high maximum polling rate. Lastly, it's well-built and very comfortable to use.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is okay for travel. It's a lightweight wireless option, but it doesn't have a slot to store its USB receiver, making it a bit difficult to carry around. Also, it doesn't have Bluetooth support, so it can't connect to most mobile devices. However, it feels very well-built, so you shouldn't have to worry about it breaking in your bag.
The Glorious Model O Wireless looks exactly like its wired version, the Glorious Model O, and the unit we tested has a matte black body. It has a stylish shape with a honeycomb design to help reduce body weight. It's all black except for the gray Glorious logo on the left side and the frost white on the scroll wheel. There are strips of RGB lighting on the sides and scroll wheel, but you can't control them independently. There are eight different preset RGB modes. You can switch between two separate brightness settings and you can program it to permanently set to the dimmer mode when used wirelessly to conserve battery.
Despite being a wireless mouse, it's a bit difficult to carry around because there's no space to store the USB receiver.
Even though the Glorious Model O Wireless has an added battery compared to the wired Glorious Model O, it's only 2 g heavier and still one of the lightest mice we've tested.
The Glorious Model O Wireless has excellent build quality. The entire body feels really solid and doesn't flex at all when squeezed. There aren't any loose or wobbly parts. The circuit board seems to be covered fairly well and it shouldn't allow too much dust in. Unlike the Glorious Model O, we didn't experience any issues with the scroll wheel where the rubber would move and the scroll wheel didn't. Overall, it feels like an upgrade over the wired variant.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is very comfortable. It has an ambidextrous design, but since the side buttons are only on the left side, it's better suited for right-handed use. Those with small hands may not find it comfortable and it's designed more for larger hands. Sadly, there aren't any grips.
Most people should be able to reach all the buttons properly using the palm grip; however, those with small hands may have a hard time reaching the front side button.
People with small hands may have a hard time reaching the front side button or even the scroll wheel using the claw grip.
Only people with larger hands will likely find the Glorious Model O Wireless comfortable with a fingertip grip. Those with small or medium-sized hands may have a hard time reaching the side buttons.
The Glorious Model O Wireless has decent wireless versatility. It only connects to its USB receiver, so you can't connect to it via Bluetooth. It comes with a USB extender, allowing you to place the receiver closer to the mouse. It's advertised to have a 71-hour battery life without RGB, but this isn't something we test for. To help conserve battery, you can set the RGB lighting to turn off after a period of inactivity and it comes back on as soon as you move the mouse.
The included USB-C cable is a bit different than the cable from the Glorious Model O that we tested since it doesn't retain any kinks from the packaging. It's a paracord-like cable that moves well and has good flexibility. It's worth noting that newer versions of the wired Model O apparently have a better cable, which is likely closer to the one included with this mouse.
The Glorious Model O Wireless' virgin-grade PTFE feet are outstanding. They feel of high quality and provide a very good gliding experience, but have sharp edges, which could cause some scratchiness when used on a desk. You can buy third-party replacement feet.
The Glorious BAMF sensor has a very wide CPI range that you can adjust in small increments. The sensor is a bit inconsistent, but it shouldn't be too noticeable to most people. The lift-off distance is advertised to be as low as 0.7 mm, but we can only test in increments of 1.2 mm. Lastly, you can adjust its polling rate from 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, or 1000Hz.
The Glorious Model O Wireless has an okay amount of buttons. You can reprogram any of its buttons, but changing the left click button to something else without reprogramming the left click action makes the mouse almost useless.
The scroll wheel is simple and each notch is well-defined. There aren't any rattling or wobbling issues. Sadly, it can't be unlocked for infinite scrolling.
Update 01/05/2021: We updated the firmware and retested the click latency. This resulted in a lower click latency.
The Glorious Model O Wireless has great low click latency. It's lower than the Glorious Model O when wired, and only marginally increases when used wirelessly.
The Glorious Core software offers great features, but it's only available on Windows. You can customize any of the mouse's settings, including the RGB lighting. It has onboard memory, so you can easily keep your settings when moving to another computer.
We tested the Glorious Model O Wireless in black, and it's also available in white. It's the only wireless model in Glorious' Model O lineup, and you can see the differences between each variant below.

The Glorious Model O Wireless is one of the best wireless ultra-light gaming mice we've tested. It's very light and it offers a smooth gliding experience. It may not be as versatile for other uses as the Razer Viper Ultimate as it doesn't have as many programmable inputs, but if you're looking for a light and wireless option that won't cost much, you should be happy with this. Also see our recommendations for the best mice, the best wireless mice, and the best gaming mice.
The Logitech G Pro X SUPERLIGHT and the Glorious Model O Wireless are both excellent wireless gaming mice. While the Glorious is a very lightweight mouse, the Logitech is even lighter. The Logitech also has a wider CPI range and is fully compatible with both Windows and macOS. On the other hand, the Glorious has RGB lighting and charges via USB-C instead of the older Micro-USB standard, like the Logitech does. Overall, they're both excellent mice, though if you prioritize a lightweight design over anything else, the Logitech may be the better choice.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is slightly better overall than the Glorious Model O, but they're very similar and have the same shape, with the main difference being that the Model O is wired-only while the Wireless can be used wirelessly or wired. On top of that, the Wireless has a wider CPI range which you can adjust by smaller increments, and it feels better-built. However, the wired Model O is marginally lighter, and the sensor is a bit more consistent whether the cursor is moved quickly or slowly.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless is better for most uses than the Glorious Model O Wireless. The Logitech is a better choice for those with small hands using palm and claw grips, has a higher CPI range, and has less CPI variation, so the sensor doesn't under or overshoot. It also has many more programmable buttons. However, the Glorious is much lighter, and the feet provide a better gliding experience.
The Razer Viper Ultimate is slightly better than the Glorious Model O Wireless for all uses. The Razer feels more comfortable, has many more programmable inputs, and has lower click latency. However, the Glorious is marginally lighter and feels better-built. While those with smaller hands will likely find the Razer more comfortable with most grip types, the Glorious is better suited for larger hands.
The Glorious Model O Wireless is better for most uses than the Glorious Model D thanks to its wireless design. The Wireless has much better build quality, a wider CPI range, lower lift-off distance, and is a bit more consistent at various speeds. Its wireless design also makes it easier to take around with you. However, the Model D is a better choice for those with small hands using the palm grip. Some people also may prefer its wired-only design and slightly slanted body.
The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless and the Glorious Model O Wireless are very much alike as they both have a lightweight honeycomb body, an ambidextrous shape, and a six-button layout. The Glorious is marginally better due to its superior build quality and higher-quality PTFE feet. However, the SteelSeries has Bluetooth capability, multi-device pairing, and its Engine 3 software is compatible with macOS, which isn't the case with the Glorious Core software.
The Glorious Model O Wireless performs slightly better for gaming than the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. Both mice are fairly small, but the Glorious is quite a bit lighter, thanks to its honeycomb design. It’s well-suited for medium or large hands using most grip types, and it feels more solid and comfortable overall. On the other hand, the G305 is a great choice for a fingertip grip, and it has more programmable inputs. However, it only connects wirelessly, while the Glorious can be used wired or wirelessly.
The Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor is better for most uses than the Glorious Model O Wireless. The Logitech has a much higher maximum CPI, more programmable inputs, and lower click latency. However, the Glorious is better for fans of ultra-light mice since it's significantly lighter, and the feet provide a better gliding experience.
