Nintendo X ASTRO Gaming Headsets are headed your way this holiday season! During E3 2018, ASTRO revealed a new partnership with Nintendo where they will develop a variety of special edition headsets, speaker tags, and accessories featuring some of Nintendo’s most iconic franchises. We got a chance to take a peek at one of the first new headsets—a Zelda-themed Nintendo Switch™ A10 Headset. Celebrating the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild, the Nintendo Switch A10 Headset features a new black color-way with gold highlights as well as the classic Legend of Zelda™ iconography.
With our new wired headset for the Nintendo Switch™, we celebrate the iconic gaming experience that The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild delivers to a new generation of gamers. We worked closely with Nintendo to create a stylish, uncompromising audio experience, with a special new chat adapter designed specifically for the Nintendo Switch. With the Nintendo Switch™ Online smartphone app, players can chat with their friends while playing compatible games at home or on the go.
