A Closer Look

Final Thoughts

The Battle Buds are small and lightweight – they can easily slip into your pocket or bag and you won’t even notice you are carrying them. The same goes for when you are wearing them, they fit in your ear and come with extra pieces to help them fit in your ears more comfortably.

The buds are wired so you need to connect them to your Switch (or any device you want to use them with) but you do get enough cable to not cause any problems.

There is a detachable mic which is clear and can easily be connected or disconnected from the headset.

The sound quality on the buds is very good as well.

The controls for the buds is easily accessible on the cable, including a mute button, volume when and a multifunction button.

If you have a Switch and want a lightweight good quality headset then take a look, and listen to the Battle Buds.

The Battle Buds In-Ear Wired Gaming Headset for Nintendo Switch from Turtle Beach are available now priced at £24.95.
