Fit

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/2)

Personally the pleather doesn't bother me but comfort is subjective for the corsair XT since round earcups isn't everyone's cup of tea.

EarFun Free 2

(1/3)

The EarFun Free 2 buds aren't a huge upgrade, but like the originals, they fit my ears well and deliver good bang for the buck with strong sound -- it has just a touch of treble and bass boost (there's plenty of bass) -- and extra features such as wireless charging. They also work well as a headset for making calls. In a lot of ways, they're a cheap alternative to Jabra's Elite 75t, though they don't have active noise canceling.

Sound Quality

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

What can i say, i love my full metal corsair products, the RGB is really cool how they have the ring around the mic! The audio is great when its in the wireless mode and its even better when you use the Aux cord. The pressure on my ears isn't a problem because of the soft foam inside The headset fits great tho its not the softest head padding Yeeeeeeee yeeee Over all i would say you cant go wrong here, a must buy! Edit: after using it for awhile i would it needs some softer head padding

Comfort

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

Wireless: The dongle provided is built strong and looks good. Functionally awesome too considering I can walk around my apartment without losing audio or mic connection. Comfort: Comfy but a bit too snug. The snugness does help with sound isolation though

Earfun Free Pro 2. Awesome ANC and most comfortable earbuds ever. They will never fall out of your ear.

Durability

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

The "Premium" version is worth it for the build and audio quality obtained considering it is wireless. Build: Quality build. Sturdy while looking really clean and cool. The RGB is a plus considering I already use Corsair's iCue software for my PC fans and keyboard

EarFun Free 2

(1/1)

I just have to make sure to keep my fingers on the side edges as I put them in or adjust them. I didn't rate the battery life as I have really tested that for length of life. At the most, I've used them for three hours straight and had no issue. After that, I pop them back in the charger case

Bluetooth Connectivity

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/2)

I'm writing this review on day 3 of owning, and these are the perfect well-rounded pair of wireless headphones. These replaced the Void Pro headset of mine and while I thought the Void Pros were top tier a year ago, the XT makes the Void lineup look like Skullcandy. The headset is nice and light, has an above average microphone, dual connection between dongle/bluetooth at the same time, and even a 3.5mm port for an external DAC

EarFun Free 2

(1/2)

I bought a new Samsung phone in July and needed a pair of wireless earbuds. I'd never had a pair so I wanted something economical but also sounded great. Based on others' feedback, I chose EarFun. They were fantastic for the first three months, but then I ran into a bluetooth synching issue with the right ear bud

Battery Life

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

"Discord Certified" but causes issues with Discord keybinds unless Discord is set in administrative mode and/or compatibility mode. Then you have issues sharing media in chat, issues with Steam Overlay, and other issues compounding on top of that, (something you shouldn't have to deal with). With iCue closed and not running, some Corsair services remain active in the background which destroys battery life on multi GPU laptops, as the services prevent Windows from utilizing the "onboard" GPU. After disabling/removing the Corsair services my GPU auto switching was fixed

EarFun Free 2

(1/3)

The battery life isn't great, but degradation shouldn't be serious if you don't go under 30-40%. There is a bit of hissing with ANC on, but it's not too bad. The housing has a very small profile, and is quite comfortable. One thing I'm not sure about is the call quality

Price Point

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

I wanted something wireless to avoid extra wires without compromising quality of sound on the mic end and audio end. Below I breakdown pros and cons mostly from a wireless perspective. Price: After watching review after review of Yotubers comparing these to other headsets that are significantly more expensive, I had a feeling these would be worth it. And so far they are

EarFun Free 2

(1/2)

When the original EarFun Free earbuds came out a couple of years ago, they were a stellar value. This new model is better and costs around the same with the discount codes, but today there's a lot more competition in the budget true-wireless earbuds. These still made our list of best cheap true-wireless earbuds, however, so they remain one of the better true-wireless values.

Price/value Ratio

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

Overall the build, the sound, they're decent but for the cost of these headphones one should expect great. however that's not the real problem. The big problem is the mic on/off is a button press (an oddly very cheap feeling button given the rest of the headset) so the way these things show you and the only way to know if the mic is on or off is a little color circle around the mouthpiece. standard Red for off and green for on except this just doesn't work, it might flip the colors or it might stay on only one color even if you've switched it on or off

EarFun Free 2

(1/1)

The latest one I'm using is earfun, with 30 hour battery life (longer than Airpods), wireless charging for the case, and 18 month warranty.Apple charges an extra $40 for the wireless charging case - airpods are $159, Airpods with wireless charging case are $199. Earfun earbuds are right now less than $40 total on Amazon, sold by the brand, and are better than Apple's offer at 199 as far as I'm concerned.
