Not everyone on the bus enjoys the music of K.K. Slider.

One feature that’s sorely missing from the Nintendo Switch (and which will hopefully be addressed in the mythical Switch Pro) is wireless audio. Playing a portable system with wired headphones just seems so…DS, I guess. And it’s a problem EPOS is addressing now with their GTW 270 Hybrid wireless earbuds.

The water-resistant GTW 270 Hybrids offer low-latency audio through an accompanying USB-C dongle. Bluetooth connectivity ensures compatibility with a wide range of mobile devices, including the Nintendo Switch.

With up to five hours of uninterrupted battery life from just a 90-minute charge, the GTW 270 Hybrid wireless earbuds are ready to follow casual and hardcore gamers taking on any portable gaming sessions. The included carrying case, in a sleek gunmetal silver, provides an additional 20 hours of charge for extended gaming sessions.

The GTW 270 Hybrids come with interchangeable rubberized ear tip sizes for a comfortable, noise-isolating fit.

Thanks to a database of 800,000 ear scans provided by EPOS parent company Demant, EPOS engineers were able to test numerous designs against the statistical data using AI technologies, developing earbud shells specifically to reduce the pressure on non-flexible parts of the ear to negligible levels while maintaining an excellent acoustic seal and delivering state of the art in-ear acoustics. The GTW 270 Hybrid also boasts IPX 5 water resistance, protecting them from sweat and light rain.

As for the audio, the GTW 270 Hybrid’s AptX™ low latency codec offers closed acoustic audio clarity for fully immersive in-game playback. The ergonomic shape is paired with EPOS’s proprietary miniaturized audio drivers top deliver “… deep powerful bass, natural mids and crisp highs for unrivalled sound quality engineered specifically for gaming.”

The EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid comes with a portable charging case, USB-C dongle, different-sized eartips, and a USB-C to USB-A converter cable for a suggested retail price of $199. It’s also available dongle-free for $169, but you’ll need that dongle for Switch compatibility. For more information, visit
