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

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

V-MODA Crossfade 2

(1/1)

They look gaudy, but if you're buying these, I'm hoping you did it for the legacy of the wired versions which these don't come close. Bluetooth syncs up fast, but there is a ever present hiss when music or sound is off. Battery life is really what made me put up with these for the 6 months I've had them. For a full size set of headphones, its great

V-MODA Crossfade 2

(1/2)

I've never been tempted to buy anything else after getting my V Moda Crossfade II's, they're just the right mix of Aesthetic and function for me even though they aren't bleeding edge.

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

V-MODA Crossfade 2

(1/1)

6 months later, I'm getting to the review. From day one I wasn't impressed with the sound quality for such a high priced set of poorly designed headphones. These things are so strangely engineered that they are obsolete for strenuous activities or exercising in most fashions. I have a average sized head and I can't find a fit that doesn't start to hurt after a hour

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

V-MODA Crossfade 2

(1/1)

. Spending almost twice as much on their replacement I took incredible care of my Crossfade 2 wireless set that I got to replace them. Unfortunately after a little more than a year of use the left headband plastic broke and they won't repair them, even though they're in working condition. I can't even buy the plastic piece to fix them myself

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

Noise Cancellation

V-MODA Crossfade 2

(1/1)

Beside all that, the overall package is perfect for the intended use, I don't look dork while using it at work, I can attach the case in my backpack while not using it and the sound isolation is perfect to block cowork's noise. PS: I made a little production to take this photo.

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.
