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.

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/5)

This on-ear pair sounds, fits, and functions like it costs more than $100. There’s no option to use these with a cord, but the ultra-long battery life means you won’t need to charge frequently.

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

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/5)

Jabra is a serious player in the ever-growing audio market. Even though Jabra headphones can’t compete with Bose and Sony in terms of sound quality, the Danish manufacturer has proven that it has accumulated an impressive amount of know-how to appeal to users. In the budget sector comes the Elite 45H on-ear headphone. The on-ear headphone Elite 45H offered by Jabra is designed for users with a small budget, which although may not benefit from noise reduction, can enjoy a long battery life with tremendous audio performance

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

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/3)

I’ve never accepted that affordable should be synonymous with terrible. Around eight years ago, Wirecutter was one of the first (if not the first) major publications to seriously test and compare budget earbuds and headphones. All we wanted back then was something around $100 that fit comfortably, sounded great, and could take a phone call reasonably well. And we wanted a pair that was reliably easy to use

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

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/1)

amazingly, it wont bend! After months it still hasn't stretched out. In reality, this is a testament to the quality of material which is why I gave it 5 stars, even though I cant really use it. Someone looking for a sturdy headset would have a difficult time finding one more sturdy than this.

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

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/1)

On top of this is a five band equalizer, the ability to adjust how long they stay on (including indefinitely), and other features. While these features are only available via smart phone, your settings remain in the headphones while using them with a computer. Cons: No jack for wired connection. They only work by Bluetooth

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

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/2)

I have a query/complaint in to Jabra now and I will update this review once I hear back from them. My experience so far: (1) the product arrived in excellent condition, (2) I charged the headset per instructions, (3) it workd beautifully for about a week. Once the set is turned on there are LED lights and a voice says "100% charge," (4) I turned them on and they were dead. I thought this was odd because just a few hours previously it was at "100% charge

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

Jabra Elite 45h

(1/3)

The headset belongs in the budget category, so don’t expect miracles from these on-ear headphones. Jabra Elite 45H on-ear headphones provide no active noise cancelation or use of Bluetooth HD codecs, as the manufacturer has done its best to make the gadget affordable. But in other respects, the Jabra Elite 45H is a perfect choice.
