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

Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox

(1/1)

And every time it tries to locate one, it beeps. And if you do get close enough to your xbox while using the headset it will turn your xbox on. Really annoying stuff. The only positive thing I have to say about this headset is that it is comfortable to wear for long periods of time

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

Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox

(1/1)

Also the battery life is much longer, and they are even more comfortable and seem just as well made or better. The xbox does not turn them off after you are done gaming, as it does on the Razer Kaira Pro, and you can continue listening without interruption. I am crossing my fingers my excellent experience with them will continue. This headset beats the Razer Kaira Pro in all respects if it continues to function without issue

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

Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox

(1/2)

And it's not a USB passthrough issue. One of the VM's I tried I use exclusively for rooting game consoles. Sound quality isn't much better. Just about any amount of bass will cause the speakers to distort

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

Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox

(1/1)

I am crossing my fingers my excellent experience with them will continue. This headset beats the Razer Kaira Pro in all respects if it continues to function without issue. I mention this for those who are looking for a bluetooth gaming headset, as there are only a few available for xbox, another being the microsoft headset.

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

Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox

(1/1)

Despite many reports that they are sensitive to RF interference, I have not had any audio problems the couple of days I have had them. I still turn off all unnecessary wifi signals while using them. I have had no problems with the app that controls them on iphone, though many have reported issues with it. The bluetooth audio is easy to mix with the game audio with my phone at around half volume

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.
