Investing in one of the best Nintendo Switch headsets is the perfect way to make your favourite games console that little bit better. 

While a quality headset is a nice thing to have on any console, with the Switch it's that little bit more essential, because while you don't really need one when you're playing on a big-screen TV, if you want to get the best out of your Switch when you're playing in handheld mode, you'll absolutely want the enhanced audio quality that only a headset can provide, especially if you're playing on your commute or when you're out and about.

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
