Improve Wired Headphone Audio From A Nintendo Switch?

Like most people this time of year, I've been traveling to visit family. Also like most, a set of headphones is a must for long plane rides. My current phone is the Razer Phone, which also means carrying Razer's USB-C dongle which contains a 24 bit THX certified DAC. Sure, that may not mean much since Razer owns THX, but keep reading.

As of firmware 5.0, the Nintendo Switch could pass audio via its USB-C port. Most people have used this for wireless USB headsets. Now what happens when you're aren't paying attention and just plug your headphones with dongle attached to the Switch's USB-C port?

Pure audio bliss, that's what. Deeper, more vibrant audio. I just tried with Ys VIII and the recently released R-type and wow. Switching between the Razer dongle and the Switch's headphone jack was night and day.

If you use a wired headset, even a cheap set, this will most definitely improve your audio quality.

If interested, the dongle can be found here for $19.99 plus shipping.

New Samurai Spirits/Samurai Shodown Game Announced!


Announced overnight, Samurai Shodown will return next year on the Playstation 4. Powered by the same engine that is powering almost every major fighter as of late, Unreal, the game is looking great. Personally, I feel that they should have gone with a style similar to Guilty Gear Xrd, but happy regardless. Seems like SNK is returning to what made them great, fighters. With KOF out for a bit now and last week's SNK heroines ~Tag Team Frenzy~, here's to hoping we get more.

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection Release Date Announced

When most people think SNK, the 1st thing that comes to mind is the Neo Geo, but SNK has a long history that predates the Neo. The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is bundling many of SNK's arcade classics into a single purchase on November 13th on the Switch. While many of you may not know of many of the games, if you are into The King of Fighters series, then you may recognize quite of few characters as they originated here.
