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 G733 Lightspeed

(1/1)

This is what I look for in gaming headphones in order: * Positional audio - I can clearly tell if an enemy is on the floor above me while also being behind me and moving left to right. Not all gaming headphones do a good job of this, but the G733's do. * Good wireless connection - They've stayed reliably paired since I got them with no fuss. * Comfort - They are really comfortable right out of the box

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 G733 Lightspeed

(1/1)

I don't understand where Logitech missed with these, these have the looks, the comfort, and the battery life, with all the audio tuned down and volume levels decreased. Either these drivers are really bad, or my pair is defective, either way these are being returned. Do yourself a favor, any of the headsets I mentioned above are much better. The battery life is worthless if rgb sucks 10 hours off of it on console and its pc only to turn this off

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 G733 Lightspeed

(1/4)

He is using it for work too. The mic is also outstanding. Crisp, clear audio from both my female alto voice and his baritone gruff voice. He has used mine on MS Team meetings (windows 10) for work, and when we play cooperatively on PS4 video games, on PS Plus, using different PS4s

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 G733 Lightspeed

(1/1)

Let me start with the negative: The only adjustment to the headband is to switch how it is attached to the headphones. Headband is elastic, so will likely stretch over time. Also, Logitech does not sell the earpads. Just the headstraps

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 G733 Lightspeed

When I can go out to the dollar store and pick up a wireless headset for $5 that can pair with all my devices - not offering this functionality is too big a miss to ignore.

Noise Cancellation

Logitech G733 Lightspeed

(1/1)

Cheap headsets do a poor job of picking my voice out of background noise, and I end up being suppressed more than anything else. While gaming with friends, they have expressed concerns that I am being smothered with a pillow, have fallen out of my chair and my headset slid across the room, or that I am sleep-gaming. Right out of the box, this headset has put all their worries to rest. It transmits my voice at a volume that no longer requires them to turn their game volume nearly all the way down just to hear me

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 G733 Lightspeed

(1/1)

I know this won't be a popular review, but it has to be said. Edit: 10/23/2020 I can confirm that these are de-tuned, using a pre-amp on pc I boosted the db to 1.5 and the volume level is up 20% more than stock settings and of course this will drain the battery faster. For the price, these are a big negative from me
