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

TOZO T6

(1/1)

I used these at work all day with several calls-excellent sound quality and then went for a 2.5 mile jog. They pair immediately and work well with one or both in. They are so comfortable and I didn’t have to readjust them even once on my run

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

(1/1)

Maintaining a constant connection drains the battery while they are being charged rendering the buds dead before I can use them. They are useless in this condition.

TOZO T6

(1/2)

Honestly I was worried about these things falling out since my ears are pretty small but I haven't had a single issue! The guide tells you correct way to wear them which is kinda funny but extremely helpful; make sure to "twist" them in and they'll fit so comfortably you can barely feel them! I had no issues pairing mine. The guide warns you that if you touch the control panel before pairing it may interrupt the pairing process, but I did that accidentally and still had no problems. Mine paired flawlessly on the first try. The guide gives you instructions on how to troubleshoot if pairing doesn't work which is really handy

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

TOZO T6

(1/6)

Sony and JBL sounded hollow and were worse than the buds 2, but still better than the previous 2 brands. Lastly, Jabra was the closest second brand to Samsung, but the buds pro and buds 2 were just better with calls and overall quality.

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

TOZO T6

(1/1)

These headphones are literally fantastic. I am a professional musician by trade and these have incredibly clear sound quality, really high end parts put into this product. The connection is fast and easy, it charges while in the case which is a great feature but better than all these features I love the ability to wear them in the shower and jam to tunes while they get soaked and survive it like a champ. Really high end headphones for a amazingly good price

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

TOZO T6

(1/2)

CONS: Wireless charging works, but the charger gets really hot. After wirelessly charging one time, I swore I'd only use a wired charger. The Bluetooth function is the real reason for the 1 star review. It connects and maintains a stable connection

Noise Cancellation

TOZO T6

(1/1)

I was able to use this for long hours without getting ear pain. Sound quality is absolutely amazing and its very easy to carry in your pocket while traveling. I highly recommend this 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.

TOZO T6

(1/1)

**Cost-effective - Tozo T6:** anything cheaper than this was just too poor to consider. These sounded audibly worse than the best below, but were also much better than a lot of more expensive buds.

Price/value Ratio

Corsair HS80

(1/1)

Okay, so the wireless dongle presents as a standard USB headset, so you can in fact plug it into any device with a USB port, but without Corsair's iCue drivers and software, the result is not worth the price of the product. Note that this device does not have either Bluetooth or 3.5 mm jack support, so the USB dongle is your only connection option. This said, I am quite happy with the price / performance when running on my Windows 10 Gaming PC
