Looking through Rtings it looks like basically everything has terrible latency over the SBC codec the Switch is stuck with

Sony XM4s for example do 38ms to iOS over AAC or 60ms to Android over LDAC, but SBC is 212ms

It's pretty much why Microsoft went with proprietary wifi sixteen years ago.

I use those Bluetooth airbuds every ody on YouTube has paid promotion for, don't remember their name. I've never noticed audio lag on the on my phone. But then again how would I notice audio lag on a podcast. Only game I play on here is final fantasy

Tested it just now with airpods pro and it worked pretty well. Was actually prepared for it to be laggy and annoying. if it was delayed it wouldnít be enough to make anything unplayable (Mario kart was fine, donít know about twitchy platformers)

ps4 and 5 controllers have headphone jacks in them so the need for bt headphones is mitigated but even so if itís something you need you can just buy compatible ones. not sure itís something to get smug about

If you are playing a switch handheld it has a headphone jack as well, but wireless is better

The fun part of Bluetooth audio is launching Pokemon Sword/Shield will disconnect your headphones since it automatically goes into local connection mode.

If you turn on internet connectivity, go back to settings and reconnect your headphones it works after that, until the network connection drops out.

Ugh, I kinda do like arcade racers. But I have too many unopened games.

They got any kind of drip-feed unlocks for playing single player?

I don't think I've even played all the courses on MK8 'cause while it's a very solid game the fact that almost everything was there from the get-go kinda deprioritized it for me.

Wait, a proper 1/8" analog jack?

'cause I've got some beef with everything-over-USB-C combined with not-all-USB-Cs-are-created-equal.

I miss when the compatibility of devices was determined by whether or not things physically fit.

Yes. And if you can find a 4a 5g for cheap, get that since the 5a is literally the 4a 5g with a tiny battery increase

I paired my soundcore life p2 whatever earbuds to my switch and there was noticeable lag in Zelda. But apparently they suck for latency in general, so whatever.

The only person I know who owns wired headphones is a bass player who hasn't gotten laid in like 8 years so, yes, you are pretty much correct.

Every course has hidden keys in it and you can collect and spend those to unlock more vehicles. And racing with any vehicle earns experience for customization and enhancement
