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

Klipsch T5 True Wireless

(1/1)

Maybe new T5 2gen would do better, or I am sure newly designed T5 ANC would do better but it's price tag will be $228 which will be hard to sell it to Apple iPhone, iPad, Mac owners who would be glad to have the seamless switching between different sources. Also when you come close to $300 you have Master & Dynamics 07 as a competition which has very low profile that does not stick out the ear, nice in ear comfort with rubber fins to hold it inside the ear, ANC and audiophile level sound quality. SO FOR THE ONES WHO CHOOSE TO GO WITH KLISPCH: Design is lovely but heavy to carry in the end you can toss the case inside the bag and go 8 hours straight with earbuds but its all about mobility, therefore if you don't have a bag you either end up putting it inside your pocket, which might end up getting scratched by any keys you got there with it; Or you have it inside the same pocket with your phone, worrying about screen getting cracked by an accidental bouncing of those two when you run to catch a train or hurry down the stairs. The lid of the case is very loose that hinge is no support or mechanism at all to hold the lid open like any other case; even after the first week of very very careful usage hinge of the lid got so loose as you can see in the video I posted ( I even lay a napkin underneath it while placing on a table at starbucks lol ) Battery is great, yet it would be a shame not to have a better battery with that big form factor of case and earbuds has; besides it doesn't have ANC like the competitors like apple, sony

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.

Klipsch T5 True Wireless

(1/4)

Available in black, green, or white models, the T5 II True Wireless Sport Earphones take the somewhat sporty design of the standard model and double down on it. The earpieces add earfins for extra stabilization, and though they look like they’re built like tanks, they’re lightweight and manage a super-secure fit. The outer control panels are emblazoned with large, retro Klipsch logos. As mentioned, not only are the earpieces fully waterproof, with an IP67 rating, so is the exterior of the charging case

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

Klipsch T5 True Wireless

(1/6)

The four-beam-forming mic array offers solid intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone, we could understand every word we recorded cleanly and clearly. There’s some typical Bluetooth distortion in the mix, but it’s mostly a clear signal, with plenty of high-mids for added clarity.

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

Klipsch T5 True Wireless

(1/1)

(That’s was some users are docking them a few stars) Once you do and learn all the left/right click options z; they are the best sounding and longest lasting buds. No ANC but anc isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. These fit in the ear canal and block almost as much noise, as the new Sony WF-1000xm3 ( I have those as well) Sound is perfect. Great , mids, highs
