Although the Nintendo is a very good console, it also has its defects. One of them is lack of compatibility with Bluetooth.
Although it is endowed with a jack 3.5 mm, the reality is such that, more and more, users want to get rid of all son and cords.
Fortunately, there is a trick to work around this problem and for you to play in total freedom. In this tutorial, we explain how to use a Bluetooth headset with your Switch.
Use a headset compatible with the Nintendo Switch
Since 2018, Nintendo has updated its Switch by discreetly integrating wireless router support. On the other hand, compatibility is only possible with very specific models. Indeed, the Switch recognizes only those who have a USB dongle.
Nintendo has failed to list compatible audio devices. Fortunately, Switch fans have slowly put together an unofficial list of speakers that you can pair with your console:
If you have one, then to enjoy it simply plug its dongle USB port Dock your Switch.
Some manufacturers especially design wireless speakers for the Switch, one of the first stre spearheads on the market is SteelSeries with its Wireless Arctis 1 headset. It is on sale at Amazon for the price of 119.95, a USB Type-C key is also provided.
Use an adapter
Now that we have studied the case of wireless audio devices with a dongle, what about those who rely entirely on Bluetooth?
Let's get right to the point, there is no official way to connect an audio device to the Switch via Bluetooth, however, there is a trick that comes in the form of an adapter.
To make the right choice, make sure it has a Jack output so you can connect it to your headphone jack.
Nintendo has created an adapter for its players to enjoy an even more immersive experience, it is sold 43.99 on Amazon.
You can also turn to the RHA Wireless Flight Adapter. This one has a dongle that attaches directly to the jack, and can be paired with up to two pairs of headsets (max.) Simultaneously. It has a battery life of 16 hours and recharges via USB-C.
During installation, we recommend that you turn off Bluetooth on devices close to you (smartphones, PCs) to prevent accidental connection of the wrong device.
