The best Nintendo Switch accessories you can buy

Why you’ll love it: The SteelSeries Arctis 7 not only looks great and is extremely comfortable, but it sounds good, and should make your Switch gaming experience more immersive.

Dozens of great gaming headsets have been released over the past few years, but if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner, then the best one for you is probably the SteelSeries Arctis 7. SteelSeries has a history of developing excellent headsets, and the Arctis 7 is one of the best it’s made.

The Arctis 7 has a lot going for it. It can work with the Switch both in docked and in handheld mode. When docked, the SteelSeries Arctis 7 can be used wirelessly with the wireless transmitter plugged into the Switch’s dock. In handheld mode, you can use the Artcis 7 in wired mode with the Switch’s headphone jack.

The Arctis 7 also sounds great. The headset offers nice, present lows without going over the top, with a nicely-tuned mid range and crisp, detailed high end. That should help make games sound immersive and full without sounding unnatural.

We’ve been using the headset for over a year now, and particularly like the fact that it’s so comfortable. There’s a ton of padding in the ear cups, and the stretchy headband means that it fits nicely on all head sizes.

But what downsides are there? Well, there aren’t many to this headset, but there are some. For starters, at $120 it’s a little more expensive than what some might want to pay, though for what you’re getting its really a pretty good price.

Pros: Well-designed, great sound for gaming, built-in microphone, very comfortable

Cons: A little pricey for some
