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 Dime True Wireless

(1/4)

I didn't get these expecting the fanciest features and knew what to expect based on the specifications listed. I just needed something that I could connect to my laptop for some meetings. Based on the advertising and the stated "up to" 3.5 hours of battery life I felt this would be fine

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

Next complaint is battery life, what do you expect.. they’re $20. They last ALMOST as long as advertised I get about 3 hours on a full charge

Skullcandy Dime True Wireless

(1/5)

There is no advertising regarding noise canceling for these. They have a snug fit if you have an ear canal that agrees with the 3 sets of included adapters. But active noise canceling ear buds for $20? Ummm no, they don’t exist. If they do they’re probably junk

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 Dime True Wireless

(1/4)

I will have to live with them, or just get a another pair of Anker headphones that I can use for my laptop. I'm exceptionally disappointed. I didn't expect top of the line and the sound is fine, but these fall well short of even their limited specifications and I could recommend them at all. As my first Skullcandy product I'd likely be hesitant to try others

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 Dime True Wireless

(1/2)

I didn't expect them to last all day - but a runtime of under 2 hour in unacceptable. I contacted Skullcandy and their response was to send them in for warranty repair. Normally, this might be an option but sending them any way that is trackable will cost me at least half of what I paid - certainly not worth it. Plus, I'd be without headphones for as long as it takes them to "repair" them

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

I really like Skullcandy to begin with, so I was excited to try these wireless earbuds out.

Noise Cancellation

Skullcandy Dime True Wireless

(1/1)

But active noise canceling ear buds for $20? Ummm no, they don’t exist. If they do they’re probably junk. As with everything there are occasionally manufacturing defects on any product we buy and use. Why couldn’t the negative Nancy’s just do what you’re supposed to and send them back for another set before drawing a hasty conclusion and writing a bad review? They bothered me enough to write one of my own

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.

Skullcandy Dime True Wireless

(1/1)

First, I want to start this review by saying I've seen at least 3 other reviews right here on AMZ that say these sound as good if not better than air pod pros. That is utter nonsense! These are no where near the sonic quality of air pod pros, not now not ever. What they excel at is value! I primarily bought these to use on my soft phone at work and they are amazing for that for a few reasons. One, they pair super easy
