The SXFI AMP will work with most phones and laptops that have a USB Type-C connector. If your phone has a USB Micro-B connector, you will need a USB Micro-B OTG adapter to connect the SXFI AMP to it.

Yes, your PC should be Windows 10 Creator's Update Ver. 1703, and you just need to configure the game audio settings to output audio for 5.1 or 7.1 speakers and to disable any built-in headphone virtualization feature.

The SXFI AMP is not compatible with iOS devices. An Android smartphone is required to load your personalized Super X-Fi profile into the SXFI AMP during the one-time set-up process; this cannot be done with an iOS device.
However, we understand that iOS users have discovered a way to use the SXFI AMP (already previously setup by a separate Android device), by using the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter from Apple and a USB A-to-C cable. We are unable to provide support for such use.
Yes, the Nintendo Switch is fully compatible with the SXFI AMP. Please update your AMP to the latest firmware version (by using the SXFI App). We are aware earlier versions of the AMP firmware had issues with Nintendo Switch, but this has since been fixed in the current firmware.
