Fit

Corsair HS80

(1/4)

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.

Sony MDRXB55AP

(1/1)

It comes with various tips, I took the time to find my right fit and when I did it was perfect. I can't say anything else but give it a try, the price is pretty great in comparison to the big name brands and if it doesn't work you can just return it.

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

Sony MDRXB55AP

(1/4)

The Sony MDR-XB50AP Extra Bass are average mixed usage in-ears with an emphasis on bass. They're portable, stable and block an above-average amount of noise which makes them a decent choice for commuting. Unfortunately, they aren't the most balanced-sounding headphones. They should be okay for casual listening but the excess bass won't be ideal for more critical listeners

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

Sony MDRXB55AP

(1/2)

However, the first pair I bought that were black/red lasted like 4-5 months. I thought maybe it was just me and switching back and forth between my desktop and laptop. So I figured I would try them again and just buy a pair to keep with my laptop. I’ve had the new pair for like two weeks just with my laptop and they’re already dead smh

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.

Sony MDRXB55AP

(1/1)

For decently priced headphones I’m disappointed. I didn’t want to have to spend the money on Bose, but I guess I have no choice.
