Can you connect Bluetooth headphones to your Nintendo Switch OLED?

Nintendo Switch has been launched for days, and it is widely known that it is only an improved version, rather than “Switch Pro” that many people had been hoping for. Improved features include the better kickstand, increased internal storage, brighter screen and other minor design tweaks. How about Bluetooth connection? Can you connect Bluetooth headphones to your Nintendo Switch OLED this time?

Without surprise, you still can’t enjoy Bluetooth connection to your headphones. Nintendo Switch OLED makes some changes in its speakers, which are a bit louder and clearer than the predecessors. There’s of course no support for spatial audio like Dolby Atmos, all Nintendo want to do is to serve you with a better audio experience when you play in handheld or tabletop mode.

It makes sense that Bluetooth headset connectivity is omitted to avoid interference with controller connections. There is plenty of lag that can be perceived during the game and can be considered an unpleasant experience. Luckily, if you still want to use your wireless headphones, you can do it only with a few extra dollars: just get a Nintendo Bluetooth adapter on Amazon, plug it right into your console or dock, and then you are able to connect extra Bluetooth devices.

If you have no idea which one to choose, try Ugreen Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter. With the aptX low latency codec, it can eliminate the annoying lag you may get and ensure smooth transmission for excellent game feel. What’s more, it support two wireless headphones simultaneously, enabling you to share game with your partner.
