PDP Releasing Switch Pro Controller With Headphone Jack

PDP is releasing a new Nintendo Switch Pro-style controller that features a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom. You know – like every other major platform holder already does in their controllers? A big miss on Nintendo’s own Pro Controller was that there wasn’t a headphone jack built-in for chatting.

The downside? This PDP controller, which is officially titled the Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller,  is (as the name implies) wired. So we’re still waiting on a wireless controller to offer the same functionality!

PDP’s new controller will arrive sometime this summer. Will you be picking this one up?

 

 

OFFICIAL PR:

Listen. Play. Chat. For the first time, you can plug your headset into a Nintendo Switch controller and chat with our new Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller!

With the recent announcement of communications expert, Vivox, providing the development tools used to create true in-game chat with Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch, the timing is perfect for this new innovative controller.  Launching Summer 2019, our new controller features support for Vivox’s integrated in-game chat, premium game audio through a 3.5mm audio jack, patented on-board audio controls that let you adjust the audio on the fly right from your controller, two additional programmable buttons, and an interchangeable faceplate – making it the best Nintendo Switch controller for serious gamers. Simply plug in the controller, and your go-to headset, and you’re ready to start commanding your team! Pre-orders begin this May on pdp.com and at participating retailers.

Just like our other Faceoff Controllers, this new Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller allows you to swap out and snap in different faceplates with our unique interchangeable design! You can further customize your gameplay with the dual programmable paddle-style buttons on the back. Each controller has a 10-foot fixed USB cable for plenty of room to play with ease, responsive low-friction metal analog sticks, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Listen to your game’s audio with clarity, chat with friends without the hassle of a work-around, and customize your controller to play your way. The Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller is the first of its kind in the market and will be available for pre-order this May on pdp.com and at participating retailers.

The Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller will be available at launch in Red Camo and Purple Camo for $24.99.
