The best Bluetooth Headphones to use on the Nintendo Switch
Since launch, the Nintendo Switch has not supported Bluetooth Audio output, so accessory makers stepped in with dongles and adapters, and it was always just a little frustrating having to cart something else around.
Thankfully, earlier today, Nintendo added Bluetooth Audio support to the console, meaning you can pair a set of headphones or other audio devices to the Switch – just like it <non-denominational figurehead> intended.
So you’ve probably already got a pair of Bluetooth headphones, but what if you don’t – or maybe the headphones you have you want to keep synced to your phone or other devices and want something fresh. We’ve got a small list of headphones we all have and use. There are thousands of options and they often go on sale – these won’t always be the best prices.

If you already have a headset or earbuds with a dongle, you’ll probably want to keep using that for the lowest latency. However, the dream of Bluetooth Audio has always been not having to carry around one or not swapping it from the dock to the console when moving about. But it’s something to think about!
The thing with Earbuds is they generally don’t have any controls on them, and if they do they might not work on the Nintendo Switch – but luckily you can control the volume of your headphones on your Switch itself in the home menu. With that it mind, here’s some Earbuds
