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.

Either get the Galaxy Buds Pro, Wf Xm3, Wf Xm4, or The Earfun Pro Oluv Edition for good sound. Dont get me started on Jabra either because if you look at their sound graphs, they already seem too disgusting for good listening..

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

Sennheiser CX 215

(1/4)

Bill Callahan's "Drover," a track with far less deep bass in the mix, gives us a better sense of the CX Sport's overall sound signature. The first thing we notice is a strong boosting of the highest frequencies—the tape hiss is pushed forward in the mix dramatically. Callahan's baritone vocals get a pleasant low-mid richness that's matched by a crisp high-mid presence, giving the vocals some treble edge. The drums on this track get some extra thunder, but don't sound boosted to the point of overwhelming the mix

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

Sennheiser CX 215

(1/1)

I'd previously used some really nice Skull Candies for all my listening activities and years later they finally gave in a broke. I'm super picky with my earbuds because I have pretty sensitive ears and I hate the feeling of any unnecessary pressure which are typical with Apple earbuds and the like. These are super comfortable just like my last pear and slide right into my ear without discomfort or trouble. They also block out a remarkably large amount of noise, more so than my headsets and I often find myself preferring these when I really just want to listen to something without outside interruptions

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

Sennheiser CX 215

(1/3)

I watched a nearby flight passenger yanking their expensive and well reviewed ear buds out of their ears several times on a recent airborne jaunt. Grab 'em by the y junction and just yank! I take the extra second and remove them by grasping the outer portion of the ear bud. Maybe that's why, after almost 4 years now, my ear buds work as good and look as good as the day I bought them. People, these are not heavy duty industrial grade items

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

(1/1)

Take this from me, The Sennheiser CX earbuds were awful. They had horrible fit and sound quality to me. Either get the Galaxy Buds Pro, Wf Xm3, Wf Xm4, or The Earfun Pro Oluv Edition for good sound. Dont get me started on Jabra either because if you look at their sound graphs, they already seem too disgusting for good listening

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

Sennheiser claims roughly six hours of battery life, which is on the lower end of the spectrum. Some pairs, like the JBL Reflect Mini 2, are closer to 10 hours. Your results will vary with your volume levels.

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

(1/1)

We'll see how long they last. I don't think these are any better than most $10 ear buds and I think the Skull Candy's sound a little better, but I went with these because on my last Skull Candy ear buds, the connector went bad where it plugs into the phone. Sounds like an issue with SC so I tried these. Again, nothing special here
