The great rival of the HS80 Max comes, ironically, from home. The most obvious option is the HS80 RGB from Corsair itself, since they cost 40 euros less and are identical in most features. The two compelling reasons to choose the more expensive option are obvious. The Bluetooth connection will be incredibly useful for many users who constantly switch between computers and phones, but it is an unnecessary addition for many other people. And SoundID is amazing, and it can really completely change the experience, but it’s one of those things that you have to try to know if you need it. Corsair’s biggest enemy is Razer, which also offers headphones with Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz connection, the Blackshark V2 Pro, although with a slightly higher price, 229.99 euros. However, it is a small enough difference that choosing between the Corsair HS80 Max and the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro can depend entirely on personal tastes such as aesthetics or the software they use (Corsair iCue and Razer Synapse respectively).
