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

Koss KPH30i

(1/1)

The blue version is for the white KPH30i, but why not go crazy and place them on your gray KPH30i? ;-) March 10th, 2020 update: I improved the comfort and sound with 2 products available on Amazon: Yaxi earpads for Koss PortaPro (they also fit on these KPH30i) which bring more comfort and audio improvement, and HIDIZS S3 Portable Headphone Amp/USB C DAC/Audio Amplifier which plugs directly into the USB Type-C jack of my Samsung S9+ cellphone.

Koss KPH30i

(1/1)

But don't over think it like these are some super dark sounding phones. There's still more treble energy than V Modas or the HD598cs. Not comparing them, just saying if you want every box ticked from comfort to function to sound to being able to listen to them all day. These ARE outstanding

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

Koss KPH30i

(1/4)

End of review. EDIT UPDATE: I couldn't stand it. I just had to say more after using these for two weeks. It would be enough if these sounded decent enough to get by because they're so light weight, so low cost, and so easy to just throw on while around the house or use for a conference call or phone calls in general ---- side note: the in-line mic is actually very good - no one has ever commented or even noticed that I'm not using my handset

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

Koss KPH30i

(1/2)

Be warned, there is a reason why these are so cheap...beware! If they break, don’t hesitate and return them right away, I made the mistake of trying to return them outside the “return window”

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.
