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 85t

(1/5)

Over time, as their price comes down a bit, the Elite 85t's appeal will grow. They're a very good set of true-wireless earbuds. However, they don't have quite enough wow factor to make me tell you to go run out and buy them without hesitation over other competitors in this price class. But keep them on your radar

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 85t

(1/4)

There's an equalizer you can play around with in Jabra's Sound Plus app for iOS and Android that allows you to tweak the sound profile. I mainly stuck with the default neutral setting because I didn't think the sound was improved by changing to any of the preset EQ offerings or creating a custom setting on my own. But maybe you'll have a different opinion.

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 85t

(1/1)

Hello u/Affectionate_Ad3164, Once you have found an eargel for your Jabra Elite 85t earbud that fits snuggly without being too tight, you will need to make sure you have the right adjustment with the earbud. We recommend angling the microphones on your earbuds downward when putting your earbuds in your ears. When your earbuds are in your ears, twist them counterclockwise, so the microphones are flush against your tragus. Keep in mind you may need to mix and match the size of your eargels per earbud

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 85t

(1/1)

Hello u/JoinMyFamily, At this time, we do not recommend using your phone to charge your Jabra Elite 85t if that is how you charge your device. You can charge the Jabra Elite 85t using a wall adapter with a voltage of 5v +- 0.25v and the cable we provide or a wireless charging pad with the following requirements: 5V +0.25/-0

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 85t

(1/1)

Sometimes the book was getting so good I would spend an extra hour meandering around before returning home.Worth a shot. Also, bluetooth headphones are a must (I use Jabra Elites). Accidentally karate-chopping some wired headphones out of your ears makes them insufferable during exercise

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 85t

(1/1)

Not to smash on the Air-pods, but these 75t's stay in my ears, I don't have a fear of them falling out during workouts, and they fit just as snugly (heck if not better) as the 65t's. I'm excited to use these in the warmer months on my longer bike rides. I think just the extra battery life these things pack to last me the work day and not need to do a mid day charge is a huge win and a reason to purchase and or upgrade.

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 85t

(1/1)

At this time - for me - I found the 85t's checked off all the right boxes - AND the price is excellent for what you get (Mine were $179)
