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

These are great blue tooth head phones with good comfort and exceptional sound and noise cancellation. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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

Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

(1/1)

But after 8 months of light use battery life was dropped to about 2, 3 hours maximum and after 10 months, the headset’s battery was completely died. I used 5V 1.5A charger with PLT original cable to recharge. Due to this problem now I use this as a wired headset thanks to the 3

Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

(1/3)

With a reputation for producing practical, ergonomic, and aesthetically pleasing products, Plantronics can do all of that with its latest Bluetooth headphones, the BackBeat Go 410. A comfortable, portable, Bluetooth headphones for sport priced at $129.99. The headphones provide wireless audio and ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) functionality along with numerous other well-thought-out add-ons

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

Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

(1/4)

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 810 are decent wireless over-ears for most use cases. They have great audio reproduction and are suitable for a wide variety of music genres. They offer over 20 hours of continuous playback, which is great, and their control scheme is very responsive and easy to use. Unfortunately, their noise cancelling feature is disappointing and won’t perform as well as other ANC headphones in this price range

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

Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

(1/2)

Third issue: It took 10 months this time, but the buttons and button cover are problems again. This will be the third and final time I'm returning this headset to Plantronics. I've asked for a refund, but am not holding my breath Only positive is that the warranty period resets with the new headset. Since the buttons will likely keep tearing at least I'll get a new one every few months for the cost of return shipping

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

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.
