Razer Kraken Gaming Headset
The Razer Kraken gaming headset makes it into our best PS5 headsets review, and it’s also a great option for Xbox gamers. So what makes it so special? Well, it uses immersive 7.1 surround sound for positional audio, helping you enjoy the soundtracks and soundscapes of your favorite games more deeply, and the convenience of the built-in microphone synchronizes communication with other gamers.
Along with all these awesome features, it is also comfortable. The best sound quality in the world won’t be worth it if it hurts your ears or your head. It uses cooling gel-infused oval ear pads so heat and pressure won’t build up around your ears, and because it’s made from bauxite aluminum it’s both lightweight and flexible.
Xbox controller holder
You have just completed a Rare Replay marathon and have played all thirty games in the collection. You’re tired and put the controller on the floor as you prepare to go to bed. You go get a glass of water, then come back into the room, forgetting that the controller is on the floor. You trip over it and fall into your TV, which then collapses on top of you. Your baby is crying in the next room, but you don’t answer, because you can’t hear, because you’re dead.
But if you had a neat little controller mount, things would have been different. Not only will this controller stand help you make your gaming space a little tidier, but it’s also been designed to hold different types of controllers – maybe you want to put your PlayStation 5 controller on it too? You can also hang your Razer Kraken headset on it.
Xbox controller skins
While a controller stand will make your gaming setup look a little neater, Xbox controller skins can actively make it look amazing. There are tons of different options to choose from, ranging from mysterious intergalactic tones to things more reminiscent of urban street art. Now your controller can look its best while playing the best Xbox Series X games.
xBOX console stickers
Getting a head start on the last entry on this list, you might not just want to get new skins for your controller, but a full decal for the console itself. Often console decals also come bundled with controller skins, so if you’ve always wanted to have an Xbox and a solid gold controller, these decals are probably the closest fantasy will ever come true.
Rechargeable batteries for Xbox controller
Compared to PlayStation and Switch controllers, older battery-operated Xbox controllers can start to look a bit dated. If that’s what you use and you’re annoyed with having to buy new batteries every few months, you might want to invest in a rechargeable battery.
No matter the game, nothing spoils the mood like having your controller battery cut off, especially if you’re playing one of the great Battle Royale games and you’re about to win. With the battery, you can just charge it every night and you will never have to worry about the controller low power again.
Xbox thumb grips
Are you a pro gamer looking to take your setup to the next level? Well, if you invest in some thumb grips (which are quite inexpensive), you’ll end up with an extra level of comfort and control. We’ve all had the experience of our thumb slipping ever so slightly at a time when we need absolute precision, and some handy thumb grips can help prevent that from happening.
Seagate external hard drive
Looking at the list of upcoming Xbox Series X games and worried about your memory space, considering all the games you already have in your library? Well, it looks like you should get a Seagate external hard drive, which will allow you to keep a much larger selection of games downloaded and ready to play at all times.
These hard drives come in several different designs – some of them even have a stylish LED light on them. With sizes available up to 8TB, this could be the perfect solution for your Xbox digital storage needs.
Xbox Elite Controller
Finally, we have the Xbox Elite controller. A step up from your standard Xbox controller, the Elite was designed for competitive gamers, with adjustable-tension thumbsticks and paddle shapes. You can even save up to three custom profiles on the controller, so you can switch between configurations best suited for different games. On top of all that, it has a built-in rechargeable battery – it lasts 40 hours and should help keep your controller from cutting out mid-game.
