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

LG Tone Free FN7

(1/1)

Battery life is good, worse tho if you turn noise cancelation on. But, when you need the noise cancelation feature it works great, and has two levels of cancelation.. I've owned all the LG earbuds, and these are the best yet

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.

LG Tone Free FN7

(1/2)

As mentioned, it’s possible to place the earphones in a way that feels secure and comfortable, but that doesn't create a perfect seal. This will negatively impact ANC performance, and make a clear difference in audio performance when ANC is enabled. So if the ANC sounds less effective, try adjusting the earpieces slightly by twisting them a bit.

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

LG Tone Free FN7

(1/5)

The Tone Free FN7 earphones deliver solid noise cancellation for the price, dialing back low-frequency rumble like you might hear on a plane or train quite well. The $280 Bose QuietComfort Earbuds do a more through job of blocking out these deep low frequencies, but compared with the $250 AirPods Pro, the results are surprisingly comparable.

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

Do I go with another company that maybe makes their products able to last longer? Or go with one of those cheap company's with worse sound, noise cancelling, but lasts longer? Or is this company just one of the bad ones?
