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

Logitech G G935

(1/1)

The earcups are mounted on a sturdy metal headband with another black plastic shell across the top, featuring a wide strip of memory foam padding also covered in pleather. The result is a relatively bulky headset that's much heavier than the wired G423 at 13.3 ounces, but much more comfortable thanks to the copious padding.

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

Logitech G G935

(1/1)

The battery on this unit has completely lost it's juice after only 8 months. I charge it in my strongest usb charger all night with the provided cable and I get 3 hours of wireless charge, then when I plug in the headset it will die from time to time even while plugged in with original cable. I have tried other cables and the same issue. Now my headset is stuck in a state where it's pulsating blue like it's charging although it's not plugged and wont turn off or on

Logitech G G935

(1/1)

Wireless is amazing and I love walking around the place with it on while I work or am in a call with friends. Only thing I don't like about it which is really small. When they first arrive the headset isn't stretched out and pinches your head. Even after having them sit on something to try to stretch it out

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

Logitech G G935

(1/4)

The headset doesn't bring much to the table for the higher frequencies, however. In Yes' "Roundabout," the opening acoustic guitar notes get some string texture but lack much crispness, and the guitar strums and high-hat take a back seat to the electric bass when it kicks in. The vocals are easy to make out in the busy mix, which indicates how well the headset is tuned to pick up voices above other sounds, even without much treble finesse.

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

Logitech G G935

(1/2)

- Color changing/control is cool, but you cant see it when its on your head, so maybe a bit extra that does not really provide much benefit. Cons: - Durability: I would rate the life expectency of this headset at 6 months. After which things will start to break, and often that is internal and not something you can easily fix/replace. I had to go through the logitech support process several times, I did recieve 2 replacement headsets since purchasing this, and all 3 have lasted less than 6 months

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

Logitech G G935

(1/1)

This makes these headphones my worst wireless headphones, which is pathetic given it's steep price. Update: 3/15 it's getting worse, - usually there's no sound right away but if I wiggle power on button a bit it first it I might have sound in one ear, then corrupted sound in both, but eventually it sort of works, but I have to be carefull not to move my head around much. At this point I'll just try to return these and if that doesn't work they belong in e-waste. I can't believe this is Logitech

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.

Logitech G G935

(1/2)

The Logitech G935 sits in an awkward position, between more expensive high-end wireless headsets like the Astro Gaming A50 and the Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless, and more affordable wireless headsets like the PDP LVL50 Wireless and the Astro Gaming A20. It feels very sturdy and comfortable, and it has some nice features like programmable lighting, but it doesn't sound good enough to justify its $180 price, especially when the PDP LVL50 packs comparable audio punch for just $70. If you want top-of-the-line performance and build quality, consider spending more on the Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless or the Astro A50. If you simply want a wireless headset that works with your PC or game console of choice, the PDP or Astro A20 offer much better value
