For months, Nintendo Switch owners have been forced to suffer the indignity of turning the volume down if they wanted to play video games in the middle of the night, so as to not wake their children, partners or roommates. No more!

The Switch's recent system update quietly added support for a number of USB wireless headphones, which is great news for those looking to find one last Zelda shrine as the sun shamefully rises on a weekday. However, not all dongle-based headphones work with the system. That's what we are here for.

Here is a list of wireless headphones that are confirmed to work with Nintendo's hybrid console and another list of products that have been confirmed not to work. These lists are subject to change as companies update their drivers and Nintendo releases more system updates.

One quick note about using wireless headsets in portable mode

In order to use any of the applicable headsets while the Switch is undocked, you'll have to purchase a USB-C adapter and plug the receiver into it. Once you do, it'll be sound city.
