    So im making myself a small setup that allows me to use my wireless headset with my switch. At the moment, it only works in docked mode since im using a 3.5mmj audio cable to hook it up directly to my computer. Im wondering, is there any sort of wireless 3.5mm audio cable that could hook up to the switch. Like one of these:

    But only the 2 end bits that work over a 2.4ghz connection or a bluetooth connection, essentially simulating a cable. In a way it's like wireless hdmi, which has become very popular recently, but with audio. but with audio. Does something like this exist? If so i can use the nintendo switch online app/ discord to talk with friends while hearing switch audio and i would be able to take it anywhere in my house within range.

    You could use a 3.5mm BT transmitter, which has to be powered, and pair it with a compatible headset.

    Edit: forgot to add photo.

    Like this one, for example.

    But it needs to be tested to see if it works.....

    If i had one end in the switch, and my pc hooked up with bluetooth, could i get it to register as an aux in? Or atleast any kind of sound input.

    As long as it can pair, and the BT acts as a receiver on your PC it should.

    There are probably more elegant solutions, smaller dongles, etc.
