After four years, the Nintendo Switch has finally gotten an update that allows you to use Bluetooth headphones on Switch without needing a dongle or adapter. Now, wired headphones work just fine on the Nintendo Switch, but to cut the cord and travel wirelessly where ever you go gives you a lot more freedom. We've gathered the best wireless headphones for the Switch Lite, but I've also included my favorite adapter if your favorite headphones need some help connecting.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is an awesome little gaming system. It's compact, super portable, and there are already thousands of games to play. When you're playing your Switch Lite at home or on the go, it makes for an easier gaming experience if you can use a pair of wireless headphones. Now that the Switch has built-in Bluetooth support for headphones, there are plenty of options out there to choose from.

I love the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset. It feels incredibly comfortable, offers great sound quality, and looks good too. It utilizes 7.1 surround sound and offers a built-in mic for those rare Switch games that actually offer in-game chat.

If you already have a pair of Bluetooth headphones, but you're having trouble getting them to connect to the Switch Lite, we highly recommend purchasing the HomeSpot Adapter. It plugs into your Switch Lite and syncs with Bluetooth headphones. For the best experience, you'll want to use headphones that feature low latency aptX codecs.
