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!

  • unidentified mogwai

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

  • 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 👌

  • 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.

  • Tuan X

    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?

  • gsh0ck3d

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

  • Alex Welch

    Does Kevin have hair under that hat?

    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.

  • Douglas Gadeke

    Can you make a new video on what is the best Bluetooth headphone set up to use on fortnite? I'd like to be able to talk to people. Thanks.

  • 3W3W [Nintendo, Memes, & More]

    The 4.0 Update that was just released adds USB Wireless Headphone support!

  • xxBlazeDoritosxx

    If the switch can handle doom it should be able to run Rainbow six and overwatch at 30-60fps low everything

  • ps4 champ

    Do a video on connecting your phone to the swich

  • Al Bundy

    Now that voice chat has been added natively can you help us find TRRS compatible Bluetooth transmitter/receiver for the Switch..?

  • Brandon Bhagwandeen

    How do you select the headset to pair without a screen tho?

  • mystical Frost

    Kevin I have a iWork’s Bluetooth car adapter how to connect it to my switch

  • 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.

  • Martell Tha Cool

    Nintendo got headphone jack but Apple don't?

  • Klaus

    The joy-cons are connected w Bluetooth so I hope they bring the Bluetooth headphone connectivity in the next direct !
