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 G432

(1/3)

Youtube does have a couple of songs using that technology. If you are not listening to such content - turn off surround sound, as it will sound horrible! I am giving this G432 headset a 5/5 because it provides more sound quality for the buck than I could hope for. It also sits very well on my head (I have a relatively thin head shape), for somebody with really "Thicc" head shape I would suggest to skip on these. Mic sounds crisp and clean

I am, however, having issues with comfort, as this headset is heavier than I'm used to.

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

"BE AWARE!" that majority of audio content on internet is not using that technology, so you have to specifically look for Dolby 7.1 surround sound enabled content..

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

my fault, but these Logitech feel like they could withstand a little more punishment.)

Noise Cancellation

Logitech G432

(1/1)

Figured it was time to stop bothering them with background noise so i got this. It's cheaper than my main one and seems to work ok. Headset feels like it might break if i drop it a few times and the mic definitely feels like it might break it i handle it too hard. Sound is a bit muffled but you can still hear fine

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.

Price/value Ratio

Corsair HS80

(1/1)

Okay, so the wireless dongle presents as a standard USB headset, so you can in fact plug it into any device with a USB port, but without Corsair's iCue drivers and software, the result is not worth the price of the product. Note that this device does not have either Bluetooth or 3.5 mm jack support, so the USB dongle is your only connection option. This said, I am quite happy with the price / performance when running on my Windows 10 Gaming PC
