There are hundreds of great products out there that could qualify as the "best Xbox Series X, Series S accessories," but these are our absolute top picks to get the most out of your next-gen Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S experiences.

One thing you can never be without is a good headset, and we've rounded up the best Xbox Series X, Series S headsets over here. But if I had to pick just one, my favorite is the LucidSound LS35X. This headset punches above its price point for sound quality and design, with robust materials that are built to last not months, but years. It also has a microphone that beats practically all of its competitors, even on headsets with far higher price points. I always opt for the HyperX CloudX for an entry-level alternative, but quite honestly, anything cheaper than the HyperX is not worth buying in my opinion.

As for other accessories, if you plan to use your Xbox as your main media hub, the PDP Talon media remote is a good shout. The previous-gen versions were robustly designed and worked well.

If you plan to use Xbox Series X or S console streaming, grabbing the Razer Kishi for your Android or iOS device is a great investment. Microsoft will push hard on bringing its flagship console games to mobile devices over the next year, so picking up a Kishi will ensure you're ready to take your console experience on the road when the time comes.
