While not every single game console has Bluetooth support, it is still possible to use wireless headphones for your gaming sessions. That's why there are Bluetooth transmitters, which are perfect additions to your gaming rigs. There are a lot of different models on the market, but no matter what you're looking for or your budget is, there is something that will work for you. Here are some of our favorite wireless Bluetooth transmitters to game with.

Game on with your favorite wireless headphones

With a variety of support and features, there is certainly no shortage of great Bluetooth transmitters for your wireless gaming needs. Some make for great in-home listening, while others boast battery power for all of your portable console needs. Our favorite is the Avantree Oasis Long Range Bluetooth Transmitter (opens in new tab) for its long-range (295ft) and fast transmission. With less lag and more range than most competitors, this transmitter will give you more bang for your buck. And it comes with a 2-year warranty to boot!

If you need portability, however, then TaoTronics Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter and Receiver (opens in new tab) would be our second choice for its 10-hours of battery life and lightweight design. There's no reason to buy a wired headset just for gaming when you can easily use an inexpensive transmitter along with your favorite Bluetooth headphones!
