Bluetooth Headphones for Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch doesn't have any built in wireless headphone support, so we looked into some ways to add bluetooth!

The Transmitters we tried:

*Gear I Use*
Sony A7S II:
Zeiss Lens:
Macro Lens:
Wide angle:

MKE 600 Mic:
SD Mix-Pre 3:

Game Capture:

    Aaaaaand right after doing this video the new 4.0 Switch update also enables support for USB dongle Wireless headphones! Still awkward in portable but a strong alternative for a home setup!

  • JoshWill


  • unidentified mogwai

    They could make a lot of money if they made wireless headphone for the switch

  • Sickan

    Sorry, but it just looks really odd when the transmitters stick out like that from the system

  • Chris Cella

    Why does it looks like you live in the basement of an urban outfitters Store Anyways love this channel man keep doin yo thing man 👌

  • Ro MaYo Jr

    I like how all your videos don't have intro/outro.

  • Tuan X Gaming

    Super surprised someone like HORI or PDP hasn't tried to tackle this yet. Great video.

  • Ultimo

    Good luck parrying Guardians with audio lag.

  • Scott Sweeney

    Who's hyped for Supper Mario Odyssey?

  • Axom

    I think it's just a matter of time until Nintendo announces an update for Bluetooth connectivity bcs if you think that the Gamepad of the Wii u had an Audio Jack build in that was transmitted to the system through Bluetooth connectivity and than, the reason of the switch pro controller not having one makes me think that the Nintendo Switch will have Bluetooth Connectivity option for Headphones very soon , at least I hope so.

    Get the Homespot Bluetooth 5 transmitter. It plugs into the charge port and looks minimal. Perfect for AirPods. AirPods and Zelda. Yup.

  • William Hood

    The cut to Zelda with smooth jazz in the background would’ve been awesome

  • Gregory Pabst

    You deserve more subs.

  • Daniel Walfish

    does the mic work in docked mode cause it says built in mic

  • Danyal Mohammad

    I'd take regular rumble and actual voice chat/Bluetooth headphones over hd rumble

  • SwiftFire1002

    The thing is, the Switch DOES have Bluetooth capabilities, and is useable with Linux distros via switch hacking. Nintendo has just decided to lock away the feature within their uses for controllers.

  • Joaquim Silva

    Nintendo could add a Joy con grip with a headphone jack

  • Saucy_Spartans


  • Xochitl Ramirez
