    There are many cheap chinese bluetooth switch transmitters for around $8-15 and I have been looking around for reviews of them. i couldnt find any. I want to know the usual stuff (latency, quality , etc...).And, please before anybody starts saying just buy the homespot or guiki or whatever other version: I know they exist and i know they are better, however, i would like to see all my options before comitting. Thank you for any help.

    Edit: I mean the headphone adapters not the controller adapters.

    i mean sure lets just assume theyre terrible cuz they are cheap. Again as i stated above, i know theyre worse than the name brands, but i wanted to know the details. Is it the build quality thats bad? Is the audio quality worse? by how much? how bout range or latency? I want actual information not "its cheap"

    Except those 8-15 dollars one probably will never work or have terrible range/sound quality, just spend a decent amount of money and get one that has been proven to work, it is pretty simple.

    K. Anyway, if anybody wants to post here, i hope that u are either an owner or have actually used one of the cheaper adapters. I have my reasons to ask about these adapters and if u cant say something helpful, please just dont say anything.

    It is aliexpress what you expect, If you want one just get one like on Amazon atleast there are review on one that actually work. Beside if you order aliexpress you probably going to get a knockoff and probably wait several weeks for it.

    That why I said he should look at the review, like there are review on site like Amazon, there aren't any review on Aliexpress. I did answer his concern from his opening post.

    thank you!

    If there were reviews i wouldnt be asking here. Its much faster to see reviews than wait for somebody to reply with useful info. The few reviews i found were really vague and not useful.

    I cannot speak for any specific adapter per se, but I know that "Ugreen" is a reputable company and I have bought many cables, chargers, and electronics from them, and they have been all high quality and working flawlessly.

    They offer a Bluetooth transmitter for the Switch as well.

    And Aliexpress does have reviews, just sort the search results for the most amount of orders and check reviews with pictures and/or the reviews with a low star rating.

    Aliexpress delivery time is about 4 weeks, depending on where you live.

    I hope I could help you out a bit.

    Ugreen is a good brand but their bluetooth switch adapter uses 3.5mm not usbc meaning it has to be charged which is a deal breaker for me. Regardless, I was hoping to hear about the more generic ones, but thanks a bunch anyways.
