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 Momentum True Wireless 2

(1/2)

I needn’t have worried; they’re IPX4 rated, meaning they should survive light splashes. They protrude a little more from your ears than the smallest of earbuds like the Jabra Elite 75ts, which don’t offer noise-canceling. But the important thing was that they still felt snug, and they didn’t feel like they were dangling at all. I tried wearing them while eating, and they held firm

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 True Wireless 2

(1/2)

Paid a premium for these and the crappy sound quality aside, the battery drain issue made them completely unusable.

(1/1)

If you want the best Bass, get Powerbeats Pro. If you want the best sounding earbuds and you are not an audiophile, get the Momentum True Wireless 2.

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 True Wireless 2

(1/5)

And, while Sennheiser shrank the new earbuds by 2mm, the Momentum True Wireless 2 are still on the bigger side and may not be a perfect match for some people's ears. Personally, they fit my ears quite well and I got a tight seal from the largest ear tip (three sizes are included). As I said, I felt that the slightly smaller design does help -- I was able to wear these without a problem for long stretches.Read more: The best true wireless earbuds of 2020That tight seal is crucial for optimizing sound quality and noise cancellation

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 True Wireless 2

(1/3)

Sennheiser’s true wireless earbuds performed admirably, cutting out almost all of the bass rumble from the sound. I also compared them with my over-ear Bowers & Wilkins PX wireless headphones. It sounds like an unfair comparison, but I actually think Sennheiser’s headphones did a better job overall. They matched B&W’s pair on their ability to cut out the low rumble, while cutting out more of the high-pitched whine

Noise Cancellation

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2

(1/2)

Thank goodness, then, that these controls are customizable. With a little tweaking, you can end up with a pair of true wireless earbuds that sound great, feature excellent noise-canceling performance, have improved battery life, and are also fairly easy to control. They’re expensive compared to most of their true wireless competition, but I think they just about justify it, even if it won’t make them a top pick for everybody.

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 Galaxy Buds+ are probably the best overall there, for the money. I'd recommend these, and own them myself.
