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

Jabra Elite 65t

(1/1)

However they fit just fine and they are awesome. I knew from some of the reviews that bass was lacking and that's a true statement. I have a pair of jam wireless earbuds that have way more bass but they are not as comfortable as this pair. So it seems that I had to trade base for comfort which in some cases are ok

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

Jabra Elite 65t

(1/2)

The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite are great consoles when it comes to portability, but keeping either console juiced on the go can prove challenging, especially if you’re using an older Switch model that doesn’t offer the same kind of battery life as the second-gen model or forthcoming OLED edition. That’s where a device like Anker’s PowerCore 13400 Powerbank can prove handy. The compact, Nintendo-licensed battery pack — which is currently on sale at Adorama for $30 — provides nearly enough power to charge the standard Switch twice over and can be used with a range of other USB-C devices.

Jabra Elite 65t

(1/2)

They also support multi-device pairing, so you can be connected to your computer and smartphone at the same time and have a companion app with a graphic EQ and presets to tweak their sound to your liking. Unfortunately, their unorthodox design is a little bulky and may not be so comfortable for all users. Their charging case lid is a little loose and lacks magnets to keep the earbuds in place.

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

Jabra Elite 65t, the sound is good and I'm generally happy with them, but the connection drops once in a while

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

Day-to-day usage Ok so here's where the story goes downhill and never recovers. Is it just me or is Bluetooth "5.0" just a blanket marketing term? In my old job, I've used Bluetooth 5.0 headsets (connected to PC) and walked around my office without dropping any audio (I actually went outside to the 1st floor just below my desk on the 5th floor and it still worked

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

Jabra’s previous-gen wireless earbuds have a subtle design and, for the price, offer strong battery life and a solid connection. They also come with a compact carrying case.

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.

It turned out you could do that with any earbud nothing special. So, don't buy this product until it reduces to reasonable price.
