Headphones to use wirelessly with Nintendo Switch

Jun 11, 2018
Hi all

I am looking for some headphones that can be used wirelessly with the Nintendo Switch (in docked mode) - ideally using the wireless USB connection that is possible now. I like this as I assume I can leave the USB dongle plugged in for when I want it rather than have to worry about plugging something in every time I want to use headphones.

(If they also have a cable for use in portable mode that's a bonus but not essential).

My other requirement is that the headphones also have Bluetooth so that I can also use them with my iPad / iPhone.

I thought this was a simple request but I am struggling to find something apart from the ultra expensive Arctis Pro Wireless. Not sure I can justify that spend, nice as they are.

Any ideas from experience? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. I have done a heap of reading up and did actually come across that article ... but none fully fit the above surprisingly.....

Hi Paul!

So Henry saw you were having trouble finding a pair of headphones, and he tested a few we had in the office. He even wrote an article prompted by your inquiry! You can check it out here: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/nintendo-switch-wireless-headphones,review-5494.html
