If you have a Nintendo Switch, then you also want the best accessories and gadgets available. Having an awesome headset that can provide better sound than the console itself, is important if you are a serious gamer. While wireless headsets are great, especially for an active gamer, there are rumors of an update that will render them incompatible.
So, our list includes all wired headsets. You still won’t be disappointed; this list is packed with awesome accessories. Better still, they are all under $100. Here are the best Nintendo Switch headsets on the market today.
Logitech G Pro
The Logitech G Pro may just be your go-to headset. It’s a lightweight headset with soft ear cushions and head strap. In addition, the ear cups are noise canceling, for those who want a true immersion experience. It’s super bassy, too, which adds to the experience. The Logitech G Pro has a removable microphone, for those who don’t use chat mode often.
Turtle Beach Elite Atlas
The Turtle Beach Elite Atlas offers the best bang for your buck. This is a great headset for Nintendo Switch users. It comes with two cables; a short one for gaming in handheld mode, and a longer cable that is ideal for use with a PC. No other high-end headset has two cables included.
The ear cushions are just as elite as the name of the headset; they are comfortable and are designed to alleviate pressure on your ears for those long gaming sessions.
The sound quality is top notch and offers crisp audio with banging bass. Plus, it has a Truspeak microphone that is removable.
The Roccat Khan Pro
The Roccat Khan Pro is a lightweight headset and amazingly comfortable. It has memory foam earpads and is designed to alleviate pressure on our ears. They also have a natural alignment for the best comfort possible and naturally cups the top of your head.
The Khan Pro has a fold-away microphone, rather than a removable one. This is great for those who tend to misplace things; you can’t take the mic off and then not be able to find it. Even cooler, the automatically mutes when it is folded up, and unmutes when folded down. So, if you need to have a private conversation, off-line, you can simple fold the mic back; there’s no mute button needed. This is a stand out feature for this headset.
The audio is stellar with The Khan Pro, also. It’s bass-heavy, which makes it great for immersion gaming.
The Plantronics Rig 500 Pro
The Plantronics Rig 500 is a lightweight headset, that is comfortable to wear. Visually, it has a very different look, from the traditional headset; it is on the bulky side and had a gold finish, where most are black with a slim design.
The speakers offer a lot of bass and a solid sound. As for the microphone, it is removable and has a flip-to-mute feature, rather than a button-controlled mute.
No matter which wired headset you purchase for your Nintendo Switch, make sure that it is comfortable and has good sound. You want to ensure that the sound from your ear cups doesn’t get picked up by the mic. Getting a removable versus a fixed mic is totally a personal decision; if you don’t like a mic in your way when you are gaming, a removable one is probably best. Just be sure that you put it somewhere where you can find it when you enter chat mode.
