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.

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

Sometimes it feels like the padding is brushing my ears in a way that bothers me. These also heat up my ears in a way that neither the Sonys or B&O headphones do. I was really disappointed in these, comfort-wise. I can wear my B&O headphones for longer, with fewer issues, than these and my main motivation for purchasing these was the comfort

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

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 PXC 550-II

(1/1)

Granted, I don't talk often on the phone, so I'm less likely to experience this, anyway, but I'd imagine the same exact issue would cause accidental pausing of music, etc., which I haven't had an issue with. Cons: The only cons I can think of are: 1) As mentioned in Comfort: The headphones press slightly too firmly on the sides of my head. This could also potentially be a Pro, so I'm reluctant to call it a con

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 PXC 550-II

(1/1)

I have had these for several months and at the same time owned Sony WH-1000XM4. After extensive time using each including air travel here is what I came to realize: 1. Sound Quality is greater than Active Noise Cancelling. No one should suffer poor sound from ANC

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

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

No fast charge features from the knowledge of mine, and it takes approximately one and a half hours from zero to total charge.Bluetooth PerformanceI am only able to speak for Android users as I don’t encounter some visual/audio lag from watching YouTube videos on the phone of mine or perhaps on some other streaming apps.Disturbances while listening was near to one and I might put the telephone of mine a great 5 meters away and connection will still be present.Smart Connect AppWith the Smart Connect App, one may set the equalizer and download some program posts on the headset

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

Sennheiser PXC 550-II

(1/1)

If you can stretch the budget, the Sennheiser PXC 550-II are amazing! I use them myself for mainly school, music and gaming (the last two with wire of course). They're really worth the price if the budget can be stretched!
