If you were hoping to lounge on your couch, Joy-Con controllers in hand and listen to the soothing music of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild through a pair of wireless headphones, youíre out of luck.

Bluetooth-enabled, wireless headphones will not be able to pair with the Nintendo Switch, Polygon confirmed this week. We tried to connect a pair of wireless Beats headphones both before and after the day-one update went live, and each time could not. It wasnít that the headphones wouldnít pair ó thereís no option to pair them at all.

In the four screenshots below, you can see the select few options Nintendo has provided when it comes to audio. Most of it centers on players choosing between a stereo or mono setting for both the consoleís internal speakers and the televisionís speakers, but there isnít anything about wireless headphones.

Audio options on the Switch are pretty limited. There is a headphone jack on the top of the system itself, but there isnít a jack on the Joy-Con controller. Thereís no headphone jack on the Joy-Con Grip, Joy-Con Charging Grip or Pro Controller, either. All of which means that if you plan to use headphones with the Switch while using playing in television mode, you have to sit pretty damn close to the system. Unless you have a pair of headphones with an extremely long cord or are willing to sit pretty close to the dock itself, youíll be forced to use the televisionís speakers.

The Switch does incorporate Bluetooth technology: Itís what the Joy-Cons use to connect to the system itself. So why canít wireless, Bluetooth-enabled headphones work with the Switch? Polygon has reached out to Nintendo multiple times and has yet to receive a response. We will update when more information becomes available.

Nintendo isnít looking to compete with the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One ó both systems allow the use of Bluetooth-enabled, wireless headphones for play ó but the entire audio setup is strange. The Wii U GamePad has a headphone jack, allowing players to plug in their headphones to the tablet and sit on a couch. Itís odd that Nintendo wouldnít include the option to do so here. The only way players could comfortably wear headphones while playing the Switch is if the console is in portable mode.
