they are compatible as standard bluetooth ear buds. So if they support BT audio, then yes they are compatible.

None of the three consoles support Bluetooth audio natively. All of them support USB audio, which obviously can then be converted to bluetooth.

For nintendo switch portable mode to use airpods. buy these 2 things:

1.
https://www.amazon.com/AUKEY-Adapter...dp/B01AUKU1OO/

2.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZYYPFHU

I just tested airpods in nintendo switch portable mode and it works. I do not have that exact 'usb-c to usb' adapter, but i have some generic noname one bought off the streets.

The mic doesn't work.

that page on amazone says it is compatable with the mic ...

"It is also compatible with the PlayStation 4 Console, offering great wireless audio with communication with your gaming headset's built-in mic."

If this works i'd be keen to use some iconX headphones on ps4

The mic works for headsets made by Creative. The microphone may or may not work for various headsets not made by Creative. You can read the comments and reviews on amazon on which headsets work and which does not work.

Question: According to creative site, chat/voice mic will only work if your bt hdset supports aptx-ll (not regular aptx) or faststream

Answer: that is correct, make sure to buy a headset with the aptx-ll and not just aptx or the mic won't work.
