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

TIN Audio T2

(1/1)

They're fairly comfortable thanks to the multiple tip options, including memory foam tips, to help you find the best fit. They also have a nice braided and detachable cable which make them more durable than most in-ears. Unfortunately, they don't have an in-line remote and microphone, but their wired connection offers no latency, and they're portable and easy to keep on you to enjoy their sound quality anywhere.

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

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

Tin T2 has a VERY durable design, Blon BL03 is just as good of an option, but the Tin T2 has a nicer cable out of the box. Highly recommended.

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

TIN Audio T2

(1/1)

All was well with this second pair for a little over a month of light to moderate use. Then, once again, one of the earbuds began cutting out intermittently, and within a few days had stopped working entirely. I tried both sides of the cable, then two other cables, and confirmed that the problem was with the left earbud itself. At this point, I requested a refund from Linsoul support since the Amazon return window had just barely closed

Noise Cancellation

TIN Audio T2

(1/1)

Noise isolation is a decent strong point for these iems as well, far better than my last pair of KZ ZST's, these earbuds present a fantastic value on all fronts, from the packaging, to the build of all parts of the iem including the cord, to the sound, at this price these are quite a heavy hitter, and in this range I really can't say you have any better choices, unless you only want sports earphones, or you only want Bluetooth, these are fantastic for someone who cares about value, sound, and a premium experience at this 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.

TIN Audio T2

(1/1)

The Soundstage/Audio Positioning is okay for these buds, so for games like CSGO, they work okay-ish, but obviously with the $50 you are better off buying a pair of Over The Ear Headphones at this price point to play video games. The only thing really amazing about these earbuds is the packaging, it almost feels like unboxing a premium luxury product. All-in-all, it's a decent pair of earbuds, alot less muddy than the KZ ATEs, but lacking in any sort of real bass. It's not amazing in anyway, but probably not worth the price point
