    As we know, the Switch has two bluetooth uhh, adapters inside of it. But they're are both reserved for the Joycons (L, and R)
    My question was if we have access to those bluetooth modules, and perhaps have the ability to change the address they connect to (wireless headphones for example)
    If not, is it even possible?

    (pls don't kill me for asking)

    I would still like to know if it's possible because I'd like to connect to things other than Bluetooth headsets

    It’s totally bogus that we can’t connect Bluetooth headphones in 2018

    First of all, stop. Second of all, I was told you can't use the Bluetooth at all. Third of all, you have to buy a dongle and I was hoping to access it natively.

    It has one bluetooth module, not two. Bluetooth supports multiple connections. No bluetooth headset support in Horizon (for now). In linux there is more control - keyboard and mouse work for example.

    There must be some super user googlers there. All I can find is an adapter to use various devices.

    Oh for crying out loud, shut the hell up. You know that's not what I meant. I obviously meant connecting it trough the normal way, and not having to buy a new headset. You know, like most devices since 2009?
    EDIT: And besides that wouldn't be using the bluetooth modules of the Switch itself, that would be using the bluetooth modules of the dongle you get with the headset.
