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.

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

We also like how clearly you can hear your own voice while speaking—this volume level is also adjustable in the app. In practice, this feature lets you speak more softly even in loud environments; the mics focus on you and reject environmental noise. Aside from not using bone conduction technology like the Elite 7 Pro's mics, another key difference is that a SAATI Acoustex mesh material used here, which helps improve communication in windy environments.

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 7 Active

(1/2)

Best of all they are comfortable for the hour plus workout time. I have not been able to put them to the battery torcher test as my work outs are too short. The noise canceling worked well enough to block out consistent noise or hum of the gym but you will still hear a cars honk (thankfully). They are light weight/compact and you won't notice them in the workout bag

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

But if want the most durable, exercise-friendly pair that does everything pretty well, it's worth checking out the Elite 7 Active.

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 7 Active

(1/3)

They stay put (even my Bose soundsports would bounce a little when I got really sweaty) Cons: the biggest… Bluetooth connection. It connects fine and fast but if you use them with more than one device you need to “forget device” and re-add it every time you alternate. The controls aren’t great but I can’t think of a better way to do it in a wireless earbud so I’ll get used to it. Finicky… occasionally when trying to connect the Bluetooth and working the controls I’ll hold the button down too long on one bud so I’ll only get sound in the other… so then I have to restart the whole process again

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 7 Active

(1/1)

The downloadable instructions says the battery lasts 11 hours, or 9 hours with ANC enabled. Quick charge 5 minutes in the case increases the life 1.2 hours. 3
