With a strong lineup of affordable accessories, it's easy to secure your Xbox essentials for below $20. The PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller remains our top budget pick, embracing a design stemming from Microsoft's official gamepad. You'll also find two additional buttons on the rear, remappable to any controller button for an extra advantage.

We're also big fans of the Snakebyte Head:Set X, a compact budget headset that doesn't disappoint. Buyers will secure punchy audio across the Xbox One library, alongside an integrated microphone for online gaming. Although it's on-ear cups aren't as immersive as premium headsets, you simply can't get better than this in the price range.
