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 Kraken V3 Pro

(1/2)

Only reason I rate it a 4/5 instead of a 5/5 for audio is that you do have to add on sound normalization but with my experience I didn't need to add more than what the default in the razer app. Without the filter some sounds are really quiet while others are VERY loud. Comfort- 5/5 Most comfortable headset I've put on in a while. Headband is super soft and such

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 Kraken V3 Pro

(1/2)

For Gaming- 5/5 If you use the pre-made eq for gaming it makes the footsteps super clear without taking away any of the beautiful ambience you might have in any game. In game voices become much much clearer and not too loud. Beautiful surround sound making it clear and easy to tell where people are. Its even wireless so you can be without a worry of having a cable snag something or get tangled up

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

(1/1)

FYI that razer kraken you have will very likely break, try save up for a separate mic and headphone combo or just a better headset overall, apart from that it's a decent setup

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.

Price/value Ratio

Corsair HS80

(1/1)

Okay, so the wireless dongle presents as a standard USB headset, so you can in fact plug it into any device with a USB port, but without Corsair's iCue drivers and software, the result is not worth the price of the product. Note that this device does not have either Bluetooth or 3.5 mm jack support, so the USB dongle is your only connection option. This said, I am quite happy with the price / performance when running on my Windows 10 Gaming PC
