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 Evolve2 65

(1/1)

For starters, the Jabra Evolve2 65 is compatible with our dedicated mobile app called Jabra Sound+, which is perfect when you are using your headset with your smartphone or tablet. The Jabra Evolve 65, on the other hand, is not able to connect to the Sound+ app. Additionally, the Jabra Evolve2 65 is much more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time with larger ear cushions and more padding on the headband itself. The Jabra Evolve2 65 also features USB-C charging, which is more durable than the micro-USB used on the Jabra Evolve 65 and has up to 37 hours of battery life

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 Evolve2 65

(1/1)

Hello u/MerchIt \- Thank you for taking the time to reach out through this platform. The Jabra Evolve2 65 reaches full charge after 1.5 hours. We do not recommend leaving a fully charged battery connected to a charger, since overcharging may shorten its lifetime

Jabra Evolve2 65

(1/2)

The Jabra Evolve2 65 Bluetooth headset gets the important things right, like a comfortable fit and good mic clarity, and really knocks it out of the park with excellent stereo audio performance.

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 Evolve2 65

(1/2)

The three-mic array offers superb intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 8, we could understand every word perfectly clearly, with zero hint of Bluetooth distortion. The recording was crisp and clear, with a little bit of low-frequency depth to it. Not only is the mic of solid quality, but the boom placement also helps tremendously here

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

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 Evolve2 65

(1/2)

In addition to a superb boom mic, an exceptionally comfortable fit, and solid battery life, the headset features MS or UC optimization, comes with a charging stand, and has dedicated controls for Microsoft Teams. It also delivers the best audio performance we've heard lately in this category, earning our Editors' Choice for high-end Bluetooth headsets.

Noise Cancellation

Jabra Evolve2 65

(1/1)

3) Noise cancellation for an on-ear headphone is a gimmick at best. Don't buy these if noise cancellation is your primary purpose. I returned them.

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.
