At this point, you can put your Bluetooth device in pairing mode. This will vary based on your particular device, but many true wireless earbuds simply require you to remove them from the case. Other headsets may have a pairing button you need to hold down. The design is a far cry from the luxuries of more expensive models, but you've still got a comfortable form factor overall. That lighter weight is playing a large role here, ensuring the Nova 1s remain ergonomic during longer play sessions and aren't a burden to take with you on the go. An elasticated inner headband keeps the plastic main band off the noggin well, and some memory foam in the cups themselves goes a long way as well. We did notice that the fabric material did get warm after a while, though.

Nintendo's approach to Bluetooth feels like when you were a kid and your folks allowed you to have ice cream... BUT not before dinner, before bed or on school days.This wired model plugs into a GameDAC base station via a 3.5mm connection, and although the supplied cable is an awkwardly short 1.2m, the base station’s controls and display are super intuitive and useful.

If you’ve got a modest budget but you want a headset for your Nintendo Switch that is long-lasting and offers great sound quality, then you should definitely consider the Corsair HS50 Stereo Gaming Headset. Like the high-end Razer Barracuda X, this budget-minded headset uses 40mm drivers to pump out deep bass and crisp treble---although it's a bit muddier than an audiophile would like.Overall, you're getting a good set of headphones here for the cash. it's worth noting that you'll only be able to get a wired connection for Xbox and PlayStation - though PC players can still connect through Bluetooth.That makes this a decidedly Nintendo Switch focused affair, where the Corsair HS70 Bluetooth really has the chance to shine.
How to use Bluetooth headphones with a Nintendo Switch via the USB-C port: place the headphones and gulikit near each other until paired (Image credit: Rebecca Spear / iMore) It’s why Bluetooth lags and sounds worse than wired. It has to be mixed down, converted to another codec, sent over, decompressed and is only then played. Takes time.

Handheld/Tabletop. Headphone (again, not wireless independent L/R like AirPods, Samsung Buds, Google Buds, etc) + Pro controller (tabletop) or attached joycons (handheld). The ability to connect to Bluetooth and through the 3.5mm cable is not only handy for swapping between your phone audio and your console, but it also fixes one of the fundamental frustrations with the Nintendo Switch itself. Corsair HS70 Bluetooth review The phone itself could be running a hundred games at once, streaming music from Apple Music, YouTube and whatever else there is, streaming a 4K HDR film from Apple TV as well as YouTube’s film max of 1080p SDR for film, and take calls and there would be no problem as far as the headphones go : it’d be noisy.
