Best Xbox One Accessories Windows Central 2019

Whether you have the 4K media-focused Xbox One S or the 4K gaming powerhouse Xbox One X, you're most likely going to need accessories. Some of the most necessary accessories include vertical stands, battery chargers for controllers, among others. We've put together a list of some of the best available.

Voice control: Amazon Echo

Staff favorite

You can now control your Xbox console using voice commands via an Amazon Echo speaker. The lowest-cost Echo devices are pretty affordable and currently sport the widest array of support for connected devices and services. The most affordable Echo device is the Echo Dot, starting at $25.

Extra controllers: Phantom White Xbox Controller

The best-looking spare Xbox controller money can buy is without a doubt the translucent, ghost-like Phantom White Xbox Controller. These Bluetooth controllers can be used on both Xbox One and PC, making them a versatile spare controller option.

Affordable controller: Regular Xbox Controller

If you figure that Player 2 doesn't need any bells and whistles, you can pick up a more affordable standard Xbox One controller. The latest models also come with Bluetooth for Xbox One and PC, and they can be connected via a USB cable if wirelessness isn't your thing.

Xbox controller upgrades: Bionik Quickshot

The Bionik Quickshot adds a couple of nice features from the Xbox One Elite Controller on a far more affordable budget. The custom parts can be easily fitted into any current-gen Xbox One controller, adding trigger locks for faster firing, and rubberized grips for a more ergonomic feel.

Affordable 4K: TCL 55R617

This TCL TV set is still regarded as the best budget option for accessible 4K gaming. Whether you're using an Xbox One X for 4K gaming or Xbox One S for 4K media, this TCL set is the cheapest, high-quality option for jumping on the 4K train.

4K OLED glory: LG B8

The current LG B8 OLED 4K TV is widely regarded as the best on the market for 4K gaming and media right now, with insane HDR contrasts and lighting, and a range of great features. It's not cheap, but it is the best if that's what you're after.

Control all the things: PDP Talon Media Remote

The PDP Talon Media remote gets our pick as the best media remote for Xbox One thanks in part to it being even better (and cheaper) than Microsoft's home-grown solution. The PDP Talon Media remote has every control needed to take command of your media.

Mouse and keys: Razer Turret

The Razer Turret is a badass (but pricey) wireless keyboard and mouse combo designed for Xbox One. With Xbox now able to support a couple of dozen games via mouse and keyboard, those who fancy the added precision of a mouse in games like The Sims 4 and Deep Rock Galactic should give this product some serious consideration.

$250 at Amazon

For Forza fans: Logitech G920 racing wheel

The Logitech G920 racing wheel is the best option for Forza or other racing game fans on the market right now, complete with force-feedback, PC compatibility via USB, and bundled pedals. You can even throw in a gear stick for a bit extra.

Stand at attention: Xbox One vertical stands

Unlike the original Xbox One, which could only be placed horizontally, the Xbox One X and S have been designed to accommodate vertical positioning. PowerA makes stands compatible with both the Xbox One X and Xbox One S. Standing the consoles on their sides makes for further space in your entertainment setup and can keep the consoles from overheating.

Wireless sound: Turtle Beach Stealth 600

For voice communication, a headset is a must, and we're currently recommending the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 as the best value wireless Xbox One headset. With excellent battery life, full wireless capabilities, mic monitoring feedback, and excellent design and construction, you won't be disappointed.

$100 at Amazon

Wired sound: Turtle Beach Atlas Elite

If you prefer quality wired headsets, our current favorite is the new Atlas Elite from Turtle Beach. Sporting premium audio tuning with robust materials and high-quality construction, the Atlas Elite is tough to beat on value, which feels (and sounds) as though it could be far more expensive.

Superior audio control: Astro MixAmp Pro TR

If you're using a wired headset, you can add more functionality quickly and easily using Astro's Pro TR MixAmp. This is a great tool for mixing sound from your Xbox with audio from a PC if you fancy using Discord or other PC programs for voice chat instead, complete with mic-monitoring injection.

$130 at Amazon

Extra storage: Seagate External HDD

All those 4K game assets wreak havoc on a game's installation size. Red Dead Redemption 2 is over 100GB for example, and will no doubt get even larger with subsequent DLC and updates. As such, an external storage device is practically a must these days.

Superior batteries: Panasonic Eneloop Charger

Standard AA batteries for controllers can become seriously expensive over time, which is why investing in a decent rechargeable solution will save you money. Panasonic's Eneloop batteries can be recharged many, many times before falling flat completely.

$27 at Amazon

Convenient charging: Snakebyte Twin:Charge X

If you fancy less fiddly charging solutions, consider the Snakebyte Twin:Charge X. While the 800 mAh batteries aren't the beefiest out there, the drop-and-charge configuration is supremely convenient, and also keeps your playspace tidy, too.

More HDMI: Techole 4K HDMI switch

If you find yourself wanting to switch more easily between multiple HDMI devices on a single port, Techole's affordable HDMI switch has been a rock-solid option for me personally. I have several of them for various devices in my set-up and haven't had any issues.

$17 at Amazon

Live it up: Xbox Live

Xbox Live Gold is the essential subscription for any Xbox One user, offering access to some of the console's best features. This premium subscription grants full access to Microsoft's gaming network, including four free games per month and online multiplayer.

Time to Xcessorize

There's a huge range of great accessories out there for Xbox One, hitting all sorts of quality levels and price points. As for best accessories, I'm a big fan of the Alexa integration Microsoft has put forward recently and can't recommend an Amazon Echo enough. I wish I could recommend the Cortana-powered Harman/Kardon Invoke, but it doesn't look like Microsoft is serious about its own assistant's future.

We're also big fans of wireless headsets, particularly Turtle Beach's Stealth 600, for its wide array of features and solid audio quality.

For controlling your media center though, we need to put the PDP Talon Media Remote out there, since it's our pick as the best media remote for Xbox One.
