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

(1/2)

The second set of ear pads are by far my favorite feeling pads I have had/tried while wearing any kind of headset/headphones. They are super soft and pretty squishy so hours upon hours of gaming will be easily achieved with maximum comfort. They are slightly tight on the head for a while, but once you break them in, they are so comfortable. Lastly, the sound is overall beautiful even right out of the box

Logitech G433

(1/1)

(with more settings in the software) + Works with PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S and the Nintendo Switch (all with ease) Cons: - A little tight on the head right out of the box. After a few days of use it gets better. - The mic cannot slide up and down for non use (which isnt a huge cone because you can simply detach the mic) - Default ear pads are not the most comfortable (in my opinion) - Had a problem where I would hear myself in the headset through the mic when I would launch programs that picked up the use of the mic. I googled it and others have had the same problem

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

(1/5)

But these blew away everything else I tested. (Stay away from the Steelseries; can confirm the build quality incorporates known design flaws.) Again, you have to go up to a $200 price point to beat these in a wired headphone. Highly recommended

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 G433

(1/2)

This is really disappointing. My husband has the same brand, which is what made my decision for this purchase, because his are 30-40 bucks, and they are GREAT quality for the price. The sound quality isn't the BEST in his headphones, but still WAY better than mine, and his is about a yr old! 3 months in, and mine are becoming more and more USELESS! I'm pi$$ed actually, mine were twice the price of his, and they suck!

Noise Cancellation

Logitech G433

(1/1)

Okay, I did a crazy amount of research and testing. Did major search/compare on RTINGS and TheSoundGuys. Brought home my top 4 candidates (Drop PC38X, G433, Corsair Virtuoso XT, Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless). Did my own listening tests (classical/opera, pink noise, white noise at different frequencies) and recording tests (audio spectrum comparison with and without external noise playing)

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
