Best Wireless Headphones for the Nintendo Switch

Now that Bluetooth audio (Thank god, finally!) is available for Nintendo Switch, an endless number of wireless headphones for gamers are competing to be at our top of the mind.


The following list includes only headphones that could be paired with the Bluetooth feature of the Switch, which is not working at 100%.



Sennheiser HD 450BT

One of the best characteristics of these headphones is the stability of long-distance connections, thanks to the Bluetooth 5.0 low latency audio support. Another distinctive feature is the app available for iOS and Android Smartphones that provides total control to the users over numerous settings, including equaliser, noise cancellation and optimisation modes. The disadvantage of these customisations is that they need to be preconfigured before using the console; therefore, battery life would be negatively impacted.


Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro True Wireless Earbuds

Even though these Anker Soundcore Liberty are not headphones, I have used them a couple of times and enjoyed playing wearing them a lot.

The advantage of the earbuds is that they can rest inside the ear, so if you have any fancy haircut, you won't be disturbed by the size of the support. On the other hand, the tiny size gives extra discretion for those gamers who play on the go and like to travel light. Features including noise cancellation and pre-set sound profiles offer the option to explore a better audio immersion. However, these settings will affect the duration of the battery.


Steelseries Arctis 1 Wireless

What I like the most about this headphone is the cosy design that is superior to the other ones I have recommended. Its audio quality is decent, without interference on busy games such as Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

The Steeleries Arctis 1 Wireless also comes with a detachable microphone that adds extra custom features for those gamers who like to communicate in real-time and play solo, listening to high-quality audio free of wires.


Corsair HS70 Bluetooth

The last headset on my list includes an optional wired 3.5 mm dual connection in addition to the Bluetooth one. This is critical for some gamers who loses patience quickly when the links are not working the way they should. This is the cheapest headset on the list and also works on Playstation. The best part is that the price doesn't halt the audio quality. However, if you are looking for a headset with a high-class attribute mic, you should check it before. The mic has some room for improvement.
