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.

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/4)

But Sony is back. The new WF-1000XM3 earbuds, launching in August for $229.99, address many of my complaints about the original product. They fit better, look nicer, exhibit very little signal loss, and have improved battery life

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

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/4)

 The Beats Powerbeats Pro have slightly bigger bass, but I thought these Sonys have more refined sound and are more articulate overall. You can tweak the sound settings in the companion app, but like with the WH-1000XM3, I didn't think playing around with the EQ offered any improvements in the sound quality (I ultimately ended up leaving it in the "flat" setting).Aside from the call quality in loud environments, the only other real strike against this model is that it's not listed as being sweatproof or water-resistant. I like to run with my true wireless earphones and these stayed in my ears pretty securely despite not having any sport fins

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

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/3)

In a clever design move, Sony put an extra-grippy finish on the bottom section of the earbud that rests in your ear, and this helps keep everything even more snug.

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

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/1)

Don't use it for a workout, you will damage it, it will violate the warranty and it is not suitable for it. I do agree that the Sony WF-1000XM3 have the best sound quality on wireless earbuds but you definitely want to have something different for workouts. The stock tips are definitely not suitable for it, I had to use Spinfit CP 360 tips for these earbuds to stay in my ear but they were definitely worth the money. People also use foam tips which helps

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

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/2)

The AirPod Pros have been my personal preference for true wireless after testing regularly AirPods, AirPod pro, Samsung Galaxy Bud Lives, and Sony WF-1000XM3’s for overall comfort and ANC, although I think each earbud set has different benefits for different people.

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

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/1)

I'm testing these right now on an iPhone 12 Max Pro but I'll switch them out to my OnePlus 7 Pro tomorrow. I haven't tested battery yet as I just received them. I'll have a better idea by the weekend.

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

Sony WF-1000XM3

(1/1)

That’s a good price. I will say headphones in this range aren’t actually worse sounding than more expensive consumer-oriented sets like Bose QC35 and Sony WH-1000XM3. Less features, but solid driver and balanced sound. Good value
