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

JBL Live 300TWS

(1/2)

Unfortunately, their 4.4-hour battery life isn't great and is quite a bit shorter than the six hours advertised by JBL. Overall, if you're looking for a new pair of truly wireless in-ears, they're a decent choice, but they don't stand out much from the crowd.

Fit

Corsair HS80

(1/4)

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.

JBL Live 300TWS

(1/3)

JBL is more comfortable to wear, has much better bass and because of the app, a more customizable sound experience. The treble of the JBL is equal if not slightly cleaner than the AirPods Pro and the mid range is about the same. The JBL can also be configured to be voice activated by Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant. Hand down a much better choice than Apple of any wireless/Bluetooth earbuds in the market

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

JBL Live 300TWS

(1/3)

I'd describe the sound as a bit bass-heavy, which may or may not be a person's preference. After wearing them for a few hours, I realized that these had trouble staying in. My issue was with the left side. I wasn't even moving much, just folding laundry

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

JBL Live 300TWS

(1/1)

In the end, I decided not to use them anymore to avoid damaging them and returned the buds.
