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

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

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless

(1/1)

Battery life isn't actually that much of a negative. I charge them overnight occasionally, and have only run out of battery once. Plugged them in to my computer and continued to use them while they charged. --- Only issues: Relatively short battery life, as compared to other similar headphones

(1/2)

I definitely think the Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless are more comfortable. This is especially true if you have larger ears or wear glasses.

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

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless

(1/6)

Not everyone will prefer that: I ended up enabling bass boost more often than not, whereas the Sonys deliver powerful, energetic sound out of the box.

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 Momentum 3 Wireless

(1/2)

Perhaps the most welcome thing about the latest Sennheiser buds is that they’re less expensive than the previous model: the Momentum True Wireless 2s launched at $299, but the company is releasing these at $249.95. That’s still premium pricing, but Sennheiser is now on par with Apple’s AirPod Pros and comes in cheaper than both Sony and Bose’s flagships. With tech products increasingly creeping up in price every year, it’s nice to see one go in the opposite direction for a change — and add new features, to boot

Noise Cancellation

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless

(1/3)

The mobile app also recently added the option to set up “sound zones” and automatically change the level of noise cancellation and EQ customizations based on where you are — whether it’s home, the office, at the gym, or other spots that you frequent. This worked as expected in my tests, but it does require you to grant the Sennheiser app location tracking privileges on your phone. Plus, using Sound Zones (or the Sound Check feature that personalizes your EQ) requires you to set up a Sennheiser account. I’m not a fan of making people sign up for an account just to use earbud features

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.
