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!

    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

    Nintendo Switch users: WTF WHY IS THERE NO BLUETOOTH?!IPhone users: WHY IS THERE NO HEADPHONE JACK?!

  • Tuan X

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

  • Chris Cella

  • Ultimo D

    Good luck parrying Guardians with audio lag.

  • unidentified mogwai

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

  • 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.

  • Dunder Edjifs

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

  • Ro MaYo Jr

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

  • Scott Sweeney

    Who's hyped for Supper Mario Odyssey?

  • gsh0ck3d

    Do you think they could add wireless headset support via firmware update?

  • Jagger Shrimp

    That’s weird that the switch doesn’t have Bluetooth bc it has the Bluetooth tech inside! Both the joy con and the pro controller connect via Bluetooth! Seriously! You can even connect the controllers to ur computer if you wanted to. Cmon Nintendo, get with the program!

  • Cursed Chungus

    Is this guy Mexican or something? He looks like middle Eastern or Indian or something

  • Trevormater &master

    Um Kevin I think there is a Bluetooth on the Nintendo switch already so ya

  • Samurai Kibiji

    So I've had the Mpow from this video here for the past few months and it does the job of being a bluetooth receiver fine, but I have a issue with no matter what headphone I link to it, or what aux jack I put the receiver in, the audio mutes itself or turns itself immensely down when there isn't any loud noise. So for example imagine playing Breath of the wild and while you're just standing around enjoyed a view, the headphones keep turning itself down except when a piano might chime in or something from the music. It's almost like there's a noise gate filter constantly at work. Anybody got a fix for that?

  • Carter Baker

    The Switch has Blu-Tooth. It may not be registered or licensed. See older Samsung 3D TVs. Nintendo is lying to you. How do I know? Lets Go Pickachu or Evee syncs data via blu-tooth. To sync via the app on your phone you must have Switch turned on and Blu-tooth enabled on the phone. So it has the hardware.

  • Dragon Loli

    i whatiuhhi dont erri dont even have the osund on most of the time

  • KrTheYeet 123

    Thank you, I don’t have a Bluetooth transmitter, but thank you

  • br0KEnThUmb

    I also got bluetooth headphones and no nintendo switch

  • Slobob The ndn

    We, my Son and I, bought a Bluetooth transmitter that plugs directly into the 3.5mm jack port. The lag is zilch, none what so ever and for him this is important when listening for footsteps in Fortnite as to not be snuck up on. Now, this is great and all but... he cannot speak to anyone thru the mic of his Bluetooth earbuds. And, yes, his ear buds have a mic for speaking. This leads me to an observation I’ve made. He has a pair of gaming headphones with mic and can speak and hear just fine with them when he is plugged directly into the 3.5 mm port. However, he wanted the Bluetooth headphones so he would not have to sit so close to his switch just to speak thru the mic. So, he bought a 3.5 mm extender and when this is plugged in it makes his ability to speak on the mic GO AWAY! Long story even longer. I’d assume buying a Bluetooth Transmitter that uses the USB port on his switch would possibly make this problem go away and he’d be able to speak on the mic. Or, is it that the transmitter is the problem and he instead needs a Bluetooth RECEIVER instead!? Help this old man and loving father with this problem please. TIA

    Switch2 will have BT. Nice try though Kevin, but for me, for now, it's the wire.

  • OKAMI468

    Like they did with the DS -> DSi, 3DS ->N3DS, they will make a Super Switch with some kind of Wireless Headset support and a few other bells and whistles.I will buy it.I just hope they make a good way for saves to transfer over - hopefully Nintendo eventually gets cloud saves working.

  • عبدالمجيد العفيصان

    شكرااا العرب مو جودين في كل مكان

  • Mike

    I was hoping this was some kind of hack, mod or loophole

  • Alexx

    HE LOOKS LIKE CHARMX 😂😁😂😁😂😁😂

  • Frank GG

    My usb turtle beach ps4 usb wireless headphones work for me. I use a USB adapter on handheld mode is not that awkward but still I wish I didn’t need that extra stuff

  • Ian Hsieh

    Do you have a good casual headset that you recommend?

  • video games

    What the hell Nintendo, are you for real Nintendo , i was searching for 1 hour to connect my Bluetooth headphones!!!!!!!! And then i searched in YouTube and found this video .I didn't ask about the Bluetooth in the switch back when I bought it because it is a stupid question in 2017 !!!!

  • Sal Espinoza

    Thanks, but could you tell us how to pair the headphones and the MPOW ? Thanks again for the great video

  • tobsmonster2

    Is this a joke? Instead of holding nintendo accountable for releasing an incomplete product, we're hunting for bluetooth dongles?

  • Anegba Manga
