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

(1/2)

old tier drop shape which I prefer. And I was a bit skeptical about the comfort of this model (since I could no longer find the old model for purchase). But if you liked FH1 for their comfort you'll feel right at home with FH1s.

But if you liked FH1 for their comfort you'll feel right at home with FH1s.. just as comfortable if not more so.

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

Fiio FH1s

(1/4)

If you want to just know if you should get these. Just do. This is the best set of IEMs for the price on the market. Comfort, sound quality, fantastic cable, and the included spin-fit tips for all sizes makes this an unbelievable package that nails every aspect of the mid-fi experience

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

Fiio FH1s

(1/1)

After 6 months one of the stems broke off while pulling it out of my ear. Fiio refuses to replace it under warranty because of "physical damage". It's not like I was rough with them; they rarely leave my desk. For $100 I was hoping for something that would last at least a year

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

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.

Fiio FH1s

(1/1)

Very good sounding IEM for the price, bass is clear and punchy enough, good treble too, can be a bit bright in prolonged listening sessions, specially jazz. Excellent comfort, no issues fitting the tips in my ear (there are many to choose and try). It’s good to have the carrying case though I rarely use it, I could do without it and knock a few bucks off the price. Very impressed so far with the value for buck offered
