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

This does not have that screeching high frequency sound that so many have. With the free iPhone app I am able to tune this to a natural sound. That is the most important thing for me. I am a musician so music is top in my life

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

On the downside, the batteries lose the ability to fully recharge after several months. And yes, I'm a technical person and was very careful with their care and maintenance. Once the first battery quit working, it was not possible to tell if the batteries or the charger was defective. In less than 1 year of occasional use, the main unit itself fell apart while I was driving

(1/3)

The shelf domes with this aid didn’t fit of course. But I found that I could trim the end of the done that connects to the aid and use the small dome, or do the same with a slight trim of the dome itself and also use the medium dome. I love this product and plan to buy it again if it lasts long term. $300 every two to three years is way better than $1600

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

So far, on my second day with this I am very happy. Exactly what I’m looking for. This does not have that screeching high frequency sound that so many have. With the free iPhone app I am able to tune this to a natural sound

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

Honestly bought this aid because of the Bluetooth function and rechargeable batteries as well as because of the BAD reviews-figured I’d see for myself. Well I saw and have been blown away. I’ve used this aid everyday, morning to night for 2 weeks and found it easily programmable, comfortable, very well made and totally dependable. I paired it with my phone once and never had to do it again

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

When I connect the battery it tells me the mode that it is in and verbally confirms connection. I have intentionally gone to the limits of the BT range and gotten verbal notification when connection is lost and when it’s regained. The sound is a little tinny to my ear but very clear and acceptable. Final pro is that when battery level is low I am alerted well before power is lost and have not experienced any reduction of sound volume or quality before changing the battery

Noise Cancellation

Sound World Solutions CS50+

(1/1)

These are for my 85 yo mom who really needs a hearing boost, but who hates all things gadget/electronics. It was a big fight to get her to try these. It took some time & repeated instruction, but she actually took to these and is fine with using them routinely. The TV is no longer blaring, which the neighbor is thrilled about! Fix the build/glue issues and it would be a 5 star product

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.

I had to buy those little wrap around things, which work ok, and still, for the price, I am happy with it. The best part is I don't have to find batteries for it. There is a self charger and they give you two batteries. I am happy with this product
