The Xbox One and Xbox One S offer a rich selection of original and third-party accessories. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite picks for both consoles.
1. HyperX Cloud Revolver S 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset
This gaming headset is our favorite Xbox One headset. It delivers tournament-grade performance, thanks to Dolby processing and a duo of 50-millimeter audio drivers, as well as a detachable noise-canceling microphone.
It features an adjustable design and soft memory-foam leatherette cushions that ensure that gamers can spend hours with the headset on without even a hint of fatigue.
2. EA Access 12 Month Subscription
EA Access is a paid subscription service, similar to Netflix, that lets you play all the best EA games on your Xbox One. Subscribers can download and play more than 50 Xbox One games, including hot titles like Madden 19, Titanfall 2, and Battlefield V. Members even get early access to some of EA’s newest games.
3. BirdRock Gaming Chair
Although this isn’t technically an Xbox accessory, we think it’s a great item to have in your game room. Most gaming chairs stick out like a sore thumb and don’t blend in with your furniture, but not this option from BirdRock.
It’s comfortable and supportive for gaming on the floor, and it is much better-looking than other options. Even better — it costs less than $100, making it an affordable and useful gift for yourself or the gamer in your life.
4. AmazonBasics Xbox One S Controller Battery Charger
This nifty accessory sits flush to the left side of your Xbox’s optical drive and serves as an easy way to recharge your wireless controllers’ batteries. It plugs directly into the Xbox’s built-in USB port, comes with two battery packs, and has LED indicator lights so you know when recharging is complete.
We like to always keep one battery charging while the other is in our controller, to ensure a low battery never gets in the way of gameplay.
5. $50 Xbox Gift Card
If you’re not certain what game to gift to your friend or loved one, get them one of these gift cards instead. They come in a range of amounts from $10 to $100, but we recommend the $50 cards because most video games cost between $50 and 60.
Although a gift card may feel like a cop-out, you can be sure you don’t accidentally give a gamer a game they already have.
6. Xbox Wireless Controller Sport White Special Edition
This newly launched wireless controller from Microsoft features a fresh white base color complemented by mint green accents, plus some gray and silver patterns spread throughout. It has a gray, rubberized diamond grip on its backside, and it comes packaged with 14-day trials for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.
