While other consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One support wireless headphones, the Nintendo Switch doesn’t, or rather it isn’t quite as straightforward. Switch gamers who want to use wireless headphones will need to attach a wireless dongle to the console’s dock which means that using it in handheld mode is next to impossible.
The good news is that the folks at SteelSeries might have you covered. The company has announced its latest wireless gaming headset in the form of the Arctis 1 Wireless. This is a wireless headset that will be compatible with the Switch in handheld mode, thanks to a small 2.4GHz receiver that connects to the Switch’s USB-C port.
But what if you wanted to use it in TV mode? Not to worry because SteelSeries has also included a USB-C to USB-A adapter that lets you plug it into the Switch’s USB-A port located on the dock. It will also be compatible with other consoles like the PS4, PC, Android, and if you so choose, there will also be a 3.5mm jack.
If you’re interested in picking up the headsets, the SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless will be priced at $100 and is available for purchase via the company’s website.
