If you’re looking for the simplest headset for Nintendo Switch that won’t take up much space and you’re just looking for the basics, the HyperX Cloud Earbuds are a great choice and are regularly priced lower than most of the choices on this page.
As with most gaming earbuds, the sound quality can’t compete with a real earbud in terms of immersion and audio depth. They do, however, offer a surprising amount of bass and are reasonably detailed. The mids and highs during music playback can be uncomfortably sharp, so we prefer to use them for games rather than for music on your phone. The mic is clear enough for basic online gaming, but if you do it regularly, your friends will thank you for opting for an arm mic.
While there are three sizes of eartips available, we found them all to be quite large, so if you often find the in-ear headphones uncomfortable, we’d advise you to skip them. The tips are extremely well made, however, and aren’t likely to crack or tear anytime soon. We love the tangle-free red Mario cable and the right-angle 3.5mm connector, perfect for the Switch in portable mode. There’s also a sturdy carrying case to store the headphones when not in use.
