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 G933 Artemis Spectrum

(1/2)

They're comfortable, decently sturdy and come with a regular and an RCA cable, so they will work with your phone, console controllers, and home theater setup. Unfortunately, they won't be the most versatile headphones to use outdoors unlike some other gaming headsets.

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 G933 Artemis Spectrum

(1/2)

This headset has also survived several drops and slams compared to the original G930 which seemed to break structurally every time. This headset is much more durable and does not loose connection to the source signal like the G930 did. Headset battery life is great as well. I don't notice the battery life trickling off like most lithium batteries in cell phones do these days

Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum

(1/1)

Not a terrible range, but can be frustrating as sometimes if you are 10-15ft away you can only hear if you turn your head in the proper direction. - Plates covering the battery/USB dongle holder are a little loose and can pop off at times if bumped - Will make a noise every time you change the volume, or every time it is quiet for a few seconds and sound plays again soon. This is to save battery but the notification of it turning on/off can be pretty annoying at times - I find that they can start to fall off of your head easily forcing you to catch them as it is kind of a loose fit, even if you have it tight around your head. Ear cups don't really stay tight around the ears, but this is due to it being for comfort, which it does succeed at That's about it for this review

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 G933 Artemis Spectrum

(1/6)

The Logitech G933 deliver on all the essentials that make a great gaming headphone. They have very low latency, a great mic, decent sound quality, and lots of customization and connection options. They're comfortable, decently sturdy and come with a regular and an RCA cable, so they will work with your phone, console controllers, and home theater setup. Unfortunately, they won't be the most versatile headphones to use outdoors unlike some other gaming headsets

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

(1/4)

I agree, its like the developers at Logitech don't actually use the software. I have to uninstall their G933 driver and revert back to Microsoft's just so G Hub doesn't destroy things and volume level goes back to normal.

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 G933 Artemis Spectrum

(1/1)

To pair you have to hold a pin into the wireless adapter until it flashes, then turn on the power (wireless) switch on your headset and hold the mute button for about 15 seconds until it flashes. After a bit it should sync together. Then go to your sound settings and switch them to your headset. Google has directions too

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 G933 Artemis Spectrum

(1/1)

- Price. Got it for $102, very nice for this price. Cons: - Head cushion came off on one side after putting the headset on for the first time - Distance is a bit low, already lagging in another room (1 wall, 12 feet away) - Speakers make a weird and pretty loud click sound when headset is waking up - Buttons take time to adjust, the volume regulator is kind of too much sensitive The cons really don't matter when the headset is in use, so I'm not paying attention to them. --- Update
