I see these are available from evetech, has anyone purchased it? Feedback?
 
Right now I think the HS80s sound better than my Virtuoso headset. They are also a lot lighter and thus more comfortable. Mic quality is not any better for me but audio definitely it. The build quality of the headset (HS80) is also rather impressive. As is, I like the virtuoso, but HS80 is even better.
 
@Gouhan you are correct the HS80 are far more detailed for some reason and a lot more comfy then the Virtuosos and to add insult to injury their pricing is on point...... They also have voicemod joining their stable to improve mic effects as well as a soundboard added.

Only thing I'm still trying to sus out is the battery life as well as odd signal interrupts at times as if they are affect by interference.

How has your battery life been thus far?
I find it's less than what Corsair said it was, maybe even half, but then again maybe other factors contribute to this.
Outside of this, I'm more than happy with the audio quality and the free Dolby ATMOS Hardware license is much appreciated.
My fav for now, at least in audio quality
 
The battery life isn't terrific at all, it's well below what Corsair claims even with the RGB logo turned off. If you're looking at something that goes the distance with battery then users would have to look towards the Coolermaster MH670(High amounts of bass yet battery still manages to peak above their claims but no indicator for battery life in software..... pathetic software) and they do not hold a candle to the flame which is HS80 sound currently as far as gaming headsets go.

The build to me makes me think it's a Steelseries Arctis Pro rip off as well but the sound is better to me, the mic is good and I'm hoping the hinge area where the cups swivel is less problematic then the Steelseries range as I've had three of the Pros break on that part of the housing. Also another point to mention is the range is minimal probably around 60ft if you're lucky but the signal is instant for sure definitely well within the 50ms range.

My main reason for sticking to these is their sheer power for wireless and the great sound reproduction. The little things like a battery display(eventhough not perfect) makes you appreciate the efforts of Corsair.

This headset for price to performance I highly recommend.
