5 best Xbox Series X/S accessories in 2022 – Sportskeeda
The Xbox Series X and Series S have been the best-selling consoles for Microsoft so far. Gradually, more people are starting to notice the insane value Xbox is providing with its Game Pass.
With the growing number of consoles in the wild, people expect valuable accessories to go with their gaming setups to increase gaming quality.
Investing in good headphones holds power to transform your immersion as a whole. Give it more thought: what good is a AAA game if you don’t get to experience it the way the developer intended.
Must-buy accessories for Xbox Series X/S
We have curated this list of five accessories that are great for your Xbox consoles:
1) Steelseries Arctis 9X – $219.99
First things first, these wireless headaches don’t require you to fiddle with a dongle because they directly connect to your Xbox Series X/S. This might seem unimportant, but the convenience of just wearing your headset and connecting wirelessly is a time saver.
If you bought the license for Dolby Atoms for your Xbox Series X/S, you’re in luck. The Arctis 9X has native support for most Dolby codecs while also supporting Xbox Windows Sonic Spatial Audio.
Also, depending on your region, Steelseries bundles a one-month trial for the Xbox Game Pass with the headset so you can try out your favorite games on the house.
The build quality is also second to none, with a steel headband construction and airweave fabric ear cushions. Conclusively, this would be our pick out of all the major headphones.

To fix this, Xbox offers a rechargeable battery solution, the Play and Charge Kit. Ironic name aside, this has to be one of the most essential accessories in your arsenal for obvious reasons.
