On the SteelSeries Xai you can record 8 macros for key combinations that can
be up to 200 different keystrokes and with a precise timing of sequences. This
allows you to setup common commands and shortcuts that enhance your actions per
minute and ensures that you don’t accidentally hit the wrong key and miss out on
important in-game sequences.
Adjustable Rate for Smooth Movement
SteelSeries ExactRate enables you to adjust the rate of which data is sent
from the SteelSeries Xai to your computer. When tweaking the ExactRate to the
response time of your screen you can make the mouse cursor movement perfectly
Tracks on Any Surface
SteelSeries ExactAim makes it possible to adjust the way the SteelSeries Xai
gets information from the laser sensor. For instance, if you have a surface that
is not optimized for gaming, then you can now simply adjust the jitter and
prediction corrections. For optimal use of the Xai we strongly recommend the
SteelSeries 9HD mousepad, which was developed simultaneously with the Xai and
features a prism-like textured surface for maximum performance for next
*Configuration software only available for Windows operating systems.
Plug and Play
There’s no need to install software of any kind to use the Xai. The built-in
driver can be adjusted through an LCD menu on the backside of the mouse. Just
plug in the Xai and play.
SteelSeries ExactSens allows you to control how fast your pointer should move
by adjusting your CPI in increments of 1 between 100-5001. This means, the
SteelSeries Xai offers you true hardware based sensitivity settings, freeing you
of interpolation from game software. To take advantage of ExactSens you need to
deactivate any cursor acceleration and set your sensitivity settings in-game
(sensitivity 1 or adjust your sensitivity slider to lowest possible setting) and
on your operating system to default. You can use the CPI calculator below to
find the value that resembles the cursor speed you are used to, giving a good
starting point for tweaking your sensitivity to perfection:

Automatic Lift Distance
To make sure you always have a 1mm lift distance, the sensor on the
SteelSeries Xai automatically adjusts the lift distance, depending on the
surface you’re using. If you are a low sensitivity gamer a minimal lift distance
is extremely important so that the mouse will shut off the sensor when you lift
your mouse up to change position.

down. See our made to fit SteelSeries Glide Xai.
LCD Menu Set-Up
With the LCD display on the backside of the SteelSeries Xai mouse, you can

Engineered for Intense Use
The SteelSeries Xai has several unique features, based on the feedback from
professional gamers who helped us develop it. To begin, the Xai is an ultra
lightweight mouse, which was highlighted by gamers as an important feature that
was missing in the mouse market today. A heavier mouse makes your wrist sore and
tires your arm after extended use. We’ve also made the Xai with a sweat
resistant coating for an optimal grip over longer periods of time. Finally,
we’ve added a nylon braided cord to optimize durability and to prevent the cord
Pro Gamer Profiles
The SteelSeries Xai allows you to configure and store up to 5 profiles on the
mouse. This helps you easily switch between profiles when playing different
games or performing tasks on your computer that require different levels of
sensitivity and precision. You can also exchange your setting profiles with
other Xai users as well as try downloading a profile from a few of our
professional gamers who’ve used the Xai to win major global tournaments.

The SteelSeries Xai is ambidextrous, which means that you can use the Xai as
a righty or lefty gamer.
