Sennheiser HD 450BT

(1/1)

- I feel it is a bit heavy and head band is a bit too tight in wearing (I am a big head person.. ). - Bluetooth 5 connection setup is easy and audio quality is rich and clear, but the connection range is same as my old HD1 headphone

Sound Quality

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/2)

I am returning these and going for the Sennheiser set and hopefully the sound quality, setup and design will be better with those, even though the reviews are kind of terrible too. Also, they took forever to get here. I ordered them on the 9th and they got here on the 14th. Not as quick as advertised when buying

Sennheiser HD 450BT

(1/5)

The MEMS mic array offers excellent intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 8, we could understand every word we recorded clearly, with very little Bluetooth distortion and even a hint of bass depth. One great aspect of the mics is they give you some in-ear monitoring of your own voice, which generally leads to speaking at more natural conversational levels, which often leads to less mic distortion and a clearer overall signal.

Battery Life

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

This is the third Corsair product I've encountered issues with, either within a very short amount of time using or out of the box. The wireless function of the headset is nice and convenient, the headset is comfortable, and the audio quality is good AFTER installing iCUE and setting your preferences. The battery life is abysmal. My product had issues out of the box, where it will not charge beyond 78% regardless of how long it is charging, and the battery drains at what seems like a very quick pace (two hours and half that 78% charge is gone)

Sennheiser estimates battery life to be roughly 30 hours, but your results will vary with your volume levels and your ANC usage.

Durability

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

I can unplug them in the morning and be absolutely certain they will get me through a full work day. If I forget to charge them at night, they will still be fine for at least a few hours the next morning. Their connectivity has been rock solid - never disconnected unless I disconnect them by walking too far away, and then reconnecting instantly. I also love the flip-up micr acting as a mute switch not visible to others on a Zoom call

Sennheiser HD 450BT

(1/1)

I’m hoping they last a long time. - Cons: There might be a little fatigue from long listening sessions, and the volume might not always be very high for podcasts or streams. This, however, is something I’ve found to be a common issue with closed-back cans. The noise cancelling isn’t the best on the market by any means, although I think the sound quality more than makes up for it

Price Point

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

These are not worth the price at all. I typically buy headphones that I can switch between gaming and recording audio on, and I can already tell that trying to record music with these is going to be useless. I am returning these and going for the Sennheiser set and hopefully the sound quality, setup and design will be better with those, even though the reviews are kind of terrible too. Also, they took forever to get here

Sennheiser HD 450BT

(1/3)

It's no secret that noise-cancelling headphones cost a good deal more than their traditional counterparts. Priced at $199.95, Sennheiser's HD 450BT headphones are far from inexpensive, but they cost considerably less than leading ANC (active noise cancellation) models like the $400 Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. For half that price, Sennheiser's pair offers above-average ANC performance and excellent Bluetooth audio

Fit

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/2)

Comfortable headset for larger head, falls off of smaller heads. The ear cuffs rotate so you can lay the headset flat on the table. The ear cuffs are comfortable and not hot. Decent quality audio and mic

Sennheiser HD 450BT

(1/5)

Their active noise cancelling feature has a fair performance but it struggles to reduce bass-range noise like bus or train engines. They also have a tight fit, helping them stay stable on your head during a light run. On the downside, their headband doesn't have a lot of padding and their ear cups may not fit larger ears well, which can make them uncomfortable to wear for several hours at a time.

They checked all my boxes, and while I don't praise them as the best in my review, they are really great overall for the money. Hey, they sound better than my kid's old Beats did.

Noise Cancellation

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

Love this headset! I have a newborn at home and these are perfect for work calls since I am working from home. it is noise cancelling enough and I love that the microphone mutes automatically when you lift it up so if i need to yell something out at home, no one on the call can hear. Would highly recommend
