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

Superlux HD 681

(1/3)

The only headphones which comes closer or maybe a little bit better is Koss ksc75, but HD681 offers little bit edgy highs, little bit toned down mids and 10% bass is loose but comes with a better sub-bass, sound stage is wider very airy, imaging is great too. additionally I dont have to spend $100-$200 on nonsense headphones amp and also no need to buy $350 headphones to gain a very small edge in sound quality over HD681 since headphones is meant to be a portable device. If you wanna buy an headphones amp with expensive headphone for gain the remaining 10% sound quality , you would be better offf buying a good pair of bookshelf speakers with a economical stereo amplifier for you home. I use HD681 with Sansa Fuze plus rockboxed and Clip jam and it runs pretty well

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

Superlux HD 681

(1/1)

Amazing headphones for the price but that much is obvious, More importantly, because you've likely already bought them as a result of their legendary price to performance value, i should now inform you how to take proper care of them just like i didn't. I left these in a hot car for a few days and long story short the headband is stiff and cracking. Not the end of the world considering i can easily get a piece of scrap leather and cut out an even nicer one, but 'buyer beware' or whatever. Also, I would recommend eventually buying new earpads for it as the ones on there will also dry out and get a little cracked if you live in a dry climate like me

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

Superlux HD 681

(1/1)

I have bought and used sooo many headphones since 2012, but this Superlux HD681 wins the race by a long margin at given price point. currently I own HD25 2 sets, HD668b, M40x, retro, Tascam TH02, Ath pro7x, Sportapro, DT1350, Koss PP, SR60I, Ksc75, Oneodio studio, Status audio, JVC harx700, srh440, HD558, HD518, M50, Koss Dj200 pro, JVC HA-S500, JVC HA-S400,HD205, Klipsch S4, HTF600, AKG240, but this pair of HD681 beats all these headphones for a very low price which I paid $20. The only headphones which comes closer or maybe a little bit better is Koss ksc75, but HD681 offers little bit edgy highs, little bit toned down mids and 10% bass is loose but comes with a better sub-bass, sound stage is wider very airy, imaging is great too. additionally I dont have to spend $100-$200 on nonsense headphones amp and also no need to buy $350 headphones to gain a very small edge in sound quality over HD681 since headphones is meant to be a portable device

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

Superlux HD 681

(1/1)

The HD681 is more comfortable. The HD668B has a standard AUX jack protruding from the left side, allowing you to attach stuff like a wireless Bluetooth receiver/DAC with microphone; best wireless headset ever is now in your hands. One recommended upgrade, for both the HD681 and HD668B, would be to get the "Brainwavz XL Large Replacement Memory Foam Earpads", Amazon item number B079SYFL9V. Those are *way* more comfortable than the stock ear pads, for those long music listening sessions

Superlux HD 681

(1/1)

Burned them in for 24 hours with some AOR that thankfully I wasn't actually listening to, and then gave them a workout with a playlist reserved for checking out speakers, and I had a massive grin plastered all over my usually thoroughly miserable face. They're perfectly comfortable, and personally I'd shy away from any of the hacks I've seen mentioned on here. You most certainly don't want the highs to be accentuated. So, yeah, for $32 you can get a big soundstage, with delicacy and respectable bass

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
