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

Sennheiser HD 560S

(1/1)

**Isolation:** Doesn't have to be complete noise-cancelling but I can't do open-back as I live in a small apartment and my girlfriend watches TV just outside the office I play games in

Sennheiser HD 560S

(1/2)

VS DT990 PRO As DT990 is V shaped tonality with narrow studio monitor sound, these two are on totally different spectrum, HD560S a solid neutral contender with extreme wide sound stage (even compared to HD650), so HD560S comes to more of all-rounder compared to DT990 PRO, which is better off on monitoring rock source. I’m running HD560S on wireless, with FiiO M11 Pro on LDAC sound quality priority mode, to FiiO BTR5 receiver, and running thru 2.5mm balanced. This will enable 96khz/24bit with 990kbps ultra hifi DSD class experience thru wireless headphone, and balanced amp has each left and right channels to be independently operated with dual ESS chip and dual opamps, upto 240mwV output of BTR5

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

Tonality wise HD560S is fine-tuned. Technicality wise K701.

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

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

Sennheiser HD 560S

(1/1)

Long-story short: HD560S can be KING OF WIRELESS HEADPHONE depending on the configurations. Airpod Max/THX PANDA/Hifiman Deva is no match to LDAC/2.5mm balanced HD560S.

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.

The new HiFiMan Edition XS looks great, best for US$500 right now. Wouldn't really go further than that as it's just diminishing returns, especially with our conversion rate.
