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

Sony WH-XB900N

(1/1)

The adaptive sound is cool to as you can focus sound in the headphones in any direction based on your environment and noise level. Battery life is the one thing I have not tested but I have no doubt that they can get the battery life that Sony claims which is 30 hours. I also like the fact that it has USB C fast charging, NFC and super fast and connectivity. I have not seen any lag issues either as the Bluetooth 4

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 WH-XB900N

(1/4)

If you love booming bass, or if you don't mind fiddling with EQ to adjust it to more normal levels, however, the WH-XB900N headphones offer a lot to like for the price.

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 WH-XB900N

(1/1)

Don't expect it to be an audiophiles' headphones. These are your average consumer's bass-pro headbands which does an awesome job of keeping the bass on its toes without compromising on the clarity given the pricetag and a decent ANC. Special hats off to the engineers behind this who rarely gets the praise. Well done
