SWITCH HEADSET SUPPORT

The Nintendo Switch does not have an option to connect wired headsets to the Joy-Con or Wireless Pro controllers. However, when the Switch is plugged into the TV Dock, we've added some magic sauce so that you can game with a DUALSHOCK 4 v2 (USB and Bluetooth) or any Xbox Series X/S (USB) controller with wired Headset Audio support!

Here's a list of popular controllers that support a headset when gaming on the Nintendo Switch. All controllers are connected to A3. Audio works with some controllers depending on if they're connected by USB, Bluetooth, or Wireless adapter. See table below.
