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 Hesh Evo

(1/2)

I just got these a month ago, and I love them. They are super comfortable to wear. I have used them on an airplane four times now and they work great. Quickly paired up to my phone, and cancelled out all the other noise, so I could watch a movie

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 Hesh Evo

(1/1)

If I fall asleep with just the noise cancelling on and nothing playing it runs out in a day. Cheaper chinese brand NC headphones have definitely last longer, though the noise cancelling is definitely inferior. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I'm not an audiophile and I don't want to have to go into the $200+ range to get better battery life to go with better NC

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/2)

The Skullcandy Hesh Evo is a cool-looking pair of over-ear wireless headphones. For $99.99, you get a supremely comfortable fit and a bass-forward experience, but not much else. There’s no app, no active noise cancellation, no exercise-focused features

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

(1/4)

They also have an excited, v-shaped sound profile that adds extra boom and thump to your mixes while brightening vocals and lead instruments. However, they lack an EQ or presets to help tweak their sound. They also struggle to isolate noise around you and leak some audio at high volumes.

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 Hesh Evo

(1/1)

I went back and forth on which ones to get, knowing that my budget was on the lower end, I also needed something that was actually going to work and last. I actually snagged these while they were on sale, honestly I'm so happy I did. They cancel MOST background noises out. I still need to be able to hear somethings so I'm okay with it but when music is on, I can't hear anything else

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

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/1)

The Skullcandy Hesh Evo Wireless are Bluetooth-enabled headphones with a simple design. They offer around 44 hours of continuous playback time, which is a lot more than the Skullcandy Hesh 3 Wireless. They also have an excited, v-shaped sound profile that adds extra boom and thump to your mixes while brightening vocals and lead instruments. However, they lack an EQ or presets to help tweak their sound

Noise Cancellation

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

(1/4)

These feel like a solid set of noise canceling headphones. I cannot compare them to a high end brand like Beats, bc I don't own them. However the steel core seems solid and they adjust well and are compact when not using. They also do block noise out well so they can be used as ear muffs when the kids are fighting, an added bonus

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.

These are not worth 100 dollars in the slightest these have nothing over my old 50 dollar ones other than slightly more bass.
