Reiyin WT-04: Bluetooth Audio for Nintendo Switch

One of the qualms about Nintendo Switch is that it does not work with Bluetooth headphones/ earphones. With wired earbuds, it often leads to nuisance like tugging the earbuds out of the ears or accidents like pulling the Nintendo Switch off the table top. All these can be avoided if the audio can be wirelessly delivered. Hence, products like Genki and Reiyin WT-04 enable Bluetooth audio for the Nintendo Switch. I bought the Reiyin WT-04 Bluetooth 5 audio transmitter from Reiyin shop on aliexpress.com during their December 2018 promotion for US$14.74 (shipping inclusive).

Sony WH-1000XM3 – The best Bluetooth noise-canceling headphone around

The Sony WH-1000XM3 is my first pair of noise-canceling audio cans. I chose this over the Bose QC3 because I find it handling the balance between sound quality and noise-canceling better. I got the Sony WH-1000XM3 for S$478 on Lazada but I am pretty sure that you can find a better deal for this nice pair of headphones.

HORI Compact Playstand for Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch’s kickstand is a nice touch. It allows the Nintendo Switch to stand on its own on a flat surface during a round of Overcooked! or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The problem is that the tilt is not adjustable, obstructed charging port and neck strains. The HORI Compact Playstand allows the Nintendo Switch to be tilted at multiple angles while being charged. I got the HORI Compact Playstand for ¥1,086 (approximately S$13.50).

Team Xecuter’s SX Gear Review

The Nintendo Switch is a powerful portable gaming device with its Nvidia Tegra X1 SoC. It has four ARM Cortex A57 cores maxing out at 2 GHz. To top it off, it has 256 CUDA cores at 768 MHz and 4 GB RAM! Other than running Nintendo Switch games, it would probably run emulators perfectly! That’s where Team Xecuter’s SX Gear, Hekate and Lakka comes into the picture.

Nintendo Switch

One year on, my colleagues and friends are still enjoying their Nintendo Switch. It does not seems to be a fad and proved itself to be one of the most exciting gaming consoles so far with periodic game releases.

The Nintendo Switch is interesting. Not only can you bring it around for single player games, you can also spice up a party with multiplayer games directly on the console or on a big screen through the included Nintendo dock. I bought the Nintendo Switch recently after one of my buddies got it. I hope I ain’t too late to the party.

It is a little pricier than its competition but track records have shown that it typically better its rivals in the area of longevity and build quality.
