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.

HyperX Cloud Stinger

(1/1)

* **What would you like to improve on from your set-up** \- I am mostly looking for a really comfortable pair of headphones that I can wear for 6-8 hours for both gaming and music/movies/etc... I would also like to note that I would rather use a setup that does not include a AMP as that would more than likely go over my budget for now, so I would prefer a pair of headphones that wouldn't need an AMP

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

HyperX Cloud Stinger

(1/2)

While it's primarily a gaming headset, the Cloud Stinger plays music fairly well. It handled our bass test track, The Knife's "Silent Shout," without a hint of distortion even at maximum volumes. It doesn't reach too deep into the sub-bass realm, however; both the kick drum and bass synth hits lack the powerful head-shaking thump that headphones with strong low-end reproduce them with. There's some force in the lows and low-mids, but there isn't any subwoofer-like rumble behind them

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

HyperX Cloud Stinger

(1/2)

99 wired gaming headset that feels comfortable and offers solid audio performance and very good microphone quality. You can get a slightly better-sounding headset by spending a bit more, but if you're on a strict budget, the Cloud Stinger is an excellent choice.

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

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

HyperX Cloud Stinger

(1/1)

I acknowledge that this might be hard to find given I want wireless. These would be used for music during my workday, gaming, occasional travel and just chillin' at home. (I use earbuds for work calls). I am open to getting a separate mic as well for gaming purposes

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

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

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
