Comfort

Corsair HS80

(1/2)

I think the earpads are a downgrade from the wired version, but aside from that it's been like my ideal headset. It's still comfy, but not as comfy as the wired Alphas. Replaceable earpads like Wicked cushions worked and fit for me and are a big improvement over the default. The headband extension is about the same as the wired Alphas

EarFun Air Pro

(1/1)

Battery has lasted longer than I expected which for the very first time in my experience means they are going to last as long as the brand says they are supposed to. The one knock I read about before purchasing was that no onboard volume control. I was actually fine with that as I have never had great luck with touch volume control on others and I like the weight of these. That’s the other great feature of these the fit is incredibly comfortable, so either I am very lucky or the build quality is just that good

Battery Life

Corsair HS80

(1/2)

The battery icon changes based on integer percentages (90%, but no 90.1%). The 300 hour battery claim seems to be accurate so far. Also the power button on the headset that tells the battery only updates every 10%, so it'll only tell 100%, 90%, 80%, and so on

(1/2)

Battery life: 3-4 hours max, then 1 earbud will stop working and the other shortly after. The "low battery" warning only gives you about a 5-10 minute heads up. Noise canceling: Actually not too bad, when the headphones are actually working properly. Major design flaw: These earbuds will automatically detect (well, they try to) when you remove one and will pause whatever is playing

EarFun Air Pro

(1/3)

The earbuds have a pretty awful fitment (tried all the different sized inserts) so during calls, I have to re-position the earbuds to keep them from falling out. When doing this, about 50% of the time it thinks the earbuds are out and just hangs up the call (or pauses whatever media Im watching). You should be able to remove an earbud without pausing or hanging up calls, but for some reason they decided against it and like I said, there's no option to disable this. Other downsides: -Doesn't allow multiple devices connected at the same time -Randomly drops connection to one earbud, have to reset then re-connect -Tap functions are really difficult to trigger sometimes, and you end up looking like an idiot tapping the side of your head trying to get it to work

Sound Quality

Corsair HS80

(1/3)

Corsair impressed me last year with its $150 HS75 XB Wireless, an Xbox-exclusive wireless headset that looked and felt more like a high-end set of headphones than a gaming accessory. They also had great sound quality and an easy-to-learn button layout with the right amount of features. It wasn’t necessarily a flaw that they only worked with Xbox consoles, but no one likes to be excluded. The company has now released the HS80 RGB Wireless for the same $150 price with PlayStation compatibility, but these aren’t quite the successor that I was expecting or hoping for

EarFun Air Pro

(1/6)

Overall I really think these things are shilled and Earfun paid a lot of money for positive reviews. The quality is there, and noise cancelling is a nice feature, but everything else about these headphones is just abysmal. These should be $40 headphones at most, and need a major design overhaul. At the end of the day, I still use these, but most of the time I still grab some cheap $20 bluetooth headphones that have a much longer battery life and physical buttons for controls, even though they do have slightly inferior sound quality

Durability

Corsair HS80

(1/2)

I love my Razer Nari for it and I detest Razer devices (especially mice) and software. Honestly I'm bouncing between a few old ones seeing which feels the best. As for which: Astro A40TR (as I recently found my old pair and they still work 5 years later), Razer Nari (for the flex band and earcups), and the Virtuoso for it's connectivity to my RGB setup. Two of those are wireless because I prefer that, however I like the mixamp from Astro enough to forego that

They've been out over a year and they're still the best wing tip buds on the market, especially with the right eartips.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Corsair HS80

(1/1)

What an odd niche to try and fill. UPDATE - So I have been back and forth with Corsair since purchasing this headset (great support, btw - 10 out of 10 for this) - they never led on that the mic would not work across Bluetooth, but everything we tried had no effect. Today I installed a new Logitech mouse on my system - previously had a Corsair unit with their software installed. After uninstalling the Corsair mouse software, the mic started working across Bluetooth

EarFun Air Pro

(1/2)

Only got 1 charge out of the case then had to plug in. Here's a real frustrating one and as so many have found the left ear bud just quite working after only a month. Is this what I have to look forward to?? I have another set of wireless earphones/buds made by a different company that are over a year old and work like a charm. In my opinion the company who makes these needs to fix the known issues they have with their ear buds

Noise Cancellation

EarFun Air Pro

(1/1)

I used them on some zoom calls and nobody said I sounded robotic or anything. I also thought everything sounded great on my end. I used them both on my Imac and pc during Zoom and Microsoft Teams meetings\calls. I can see that the advertised noise cancellation was put to good use for taking calls

Price Point

Corsair HS80

(1/1)

I really wanted to like them, but for $150, I personally don’t think it’s worth it with all the downsides. If it was priced around $100, I might have kept them.

I really regret buying these and all of these 5/5 reviews are likely paid shills that got free headphones in exchange for a positive review.
