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

Skullcandy Crusher Evo

(1/1)

These headphones are very comfortable. The part that is against the ears is soft and does not get sore. The padding is even all around the top which prevents sore spots. I would definitely recommend

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

Skullcandy Crusher Evo

(1/2)

The cool thing is that these headphones give you 40 hours of battery life which gives you hours of play time. Obviously I am a gamer. The rapid charge is 100% true it literally takes only minutes to charge for 3 hours of play. For a full charge it's only probably about 30 minutes and back up for 40 hours

Skullcandy Crusher Evo

(1/2)

It doesn't feel cheap but it's just not comfortable. It is not soft or leather-feeling like you might think, and it just has this weird uncomfortable gap at the top. Why? The headband was more uncomfortable than even headphones with no cushioning (like the Skullcandy Riff), because of the notch at the top and perhaps the weight. These are the heaviest headphones I have tried, which might be okay if they had better headband cushioning

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

Skullcandy Crusher Evo

(1/5)

I love the personal auto tune because I have a hard time hearing. It is so easy to adjust the sound to your preferences. The Skullcandy crusher evo headphones would be a perfect present for somebody who games, loves music, works too much (j/k), and for everyone! Multiple people are receiving these for gifts from me and I know they will be screaming for excitement. Definitely one of the best wireless headphones I have used in awhile

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

Skullcandy Crusher Evo

(1/2)

HEADBAND: DEALBREAKER :( It has a notch at the top of the head, which just gets too uncomfortable for me when wearing these for a long time. The cushioning is not as soft as you might think, it's a weird kind of stiff rubbery-plastic feel. It doesn't feel cheap but it's just not comfortable. It is not soft or leather-feeling like you might think, and it just has this weird uncomfortable gap at the top

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

Noise Cancellation

Skullcandy Crusher Evo

(1/1)

It is that clear! The cancellation works well too! I do not hear anything in the background when I am in meetings which I am sure my employees are happy about. It's also nice to have the noise cancellations when I'm playing my games. One of my favorite thing about these headphones is the tile. I loose everything and with the tile my life became easier no more searching for hours

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.
