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

Nacon RIG 700 HD

(1/2)

I recently just got these replaced my previous headsets I had for my PS4 and I am completely thrilled with this purchase. The crystal clear audio experience I get from these headsets is far superior compared to the previous ones I had experienced in the past. The comfort of the headsets was wonderful as well.

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

Nacon RIG 700 HD

(1/1)

Battery life is solid they are comfortable and lightweight. Audio quality leaves a bit to be desired with rather muted lows, but it's an inexpensive wireless gaming headset, so you get what you pay for. Overall it has served us well and we are happy with this headset.

Nacon RIG 700 HD

(1/1)

Rig headset is by far the most comfortable headset I have ever used. I'm a gamer and play games with my husband all the time and have tried several headset. Comfort wise, Rig headset is the winner. Overall, I highly recommend Rig headset because of its comfort level, sound level, ultra lightweight, lag-free wireless, and affordability

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

The Plantronics RIG 800LX Wireless are good gaming headphones with a comfortable and lightweight modular design. Their controls are easy-to-use, they have great battery life, and their sound profile is balanced enough for a variety of audio content. Unfortunately, like most gaming headsets, they're not made for outdoor use, and their build quality feels a bit cheap for their price point. Some users have also reported bass distortion, although this is correctable by turning down the channel mixing dial on the headphones as low as possible before you lose your audio altogether

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

I Love The TIG 700 HS Headset. I am a huge fan and player of The Hit Game Friday The 13th The Game, and having a dependable headset is very important to my success playing this game.

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

Nacon RIG 700 HD

(1/2)

The wireless was very easy to connect and had a good range, battery lasted a good while before it needed to be charged about 10-12 hours. They also have noise canceling features which I did not expect at this price. Audio was well rounded and very responsive. The set uses 40 mm drives with bass tubes so the was a good over all sound in high and mid ranges with a nice punchy bass

Noise Cancellation

Nacon RIG 700 HD

(1/1)

My boyfriend can't sleep without noise and I can't sleep without silence. He has always been kind enough to wear headphones at night as a compromise but hated having to be plugged into his Xbox control all night. These headphones give him the ability to still wear headphone but wirelessly!

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.
