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

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

(1/1)

I've always have problems with buds and these sit so snug and are so light that I don't even feel them. The jabras are good but the buds pros are better. They have nice cancelling and a cool feature where when you talk they pickup your voice and adjust to ambient mode and lower the volume the restore when you are done talking to someone. Really good feature

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

3-hour continuous battery life falls short of that of the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Truly Wireless.

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

Without the EQ it sounds crystal clear. Where I'm From by Digable Planets: This song's nice short bassline can sound different depending on your headphones. Very accurate and well-controlled bass on this one. -CLASSICS Rocket 69 by Todd Rhodes: This is the "make it or break it" moment for figuring out if headphones are too "bright" for me

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)

* **Past Headphones** I was using $10 sony things for a decade, then splashed on some Jaybirds x3 and loved them until the wiring broke and the left ear stopped working. I'm looking for something that's not going to be a downgrade from those.

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

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

(1/1)

I have Airpods as well as Jabra Elite 65t, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, and various Plantronics. The Apple are the only ones that are wonky. There seems to be some other protocol for them that needs to be enabled, but I didn't bother and just switched to the Galaxy Buds Pro (the Jabras are excellent as well.)The very first DDG result for "airpods linux bluetooth" is this one: https://askubuntu

Noise Cancellation

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

(1/1)

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro Truly Wireless are in-ear headphones with a good active noise cancelling (ANC) feature. They can isolate more noise than the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Truly Wireless, although they still struggle to cut down bass-range noise like engine rumbles. They're also similarly well-built to other Samsung truly wireless headphones, and they have a higher IPX7 certification for protection against water immersion. Unfortunately, their 4

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.

However since using the active elites at the gym I can't go back especially for the price. I returned these super disappointed. Good luck I hope this helps
