When it comes to wireless headsets, the Xbox One doesn’t have as many options as the PS4. Thankfully, SteelSeries has revealed a new option for Xbox owners. The company has announced a new version of its Arctis 1 Wireless gaming headset that works with the Xbox One and is compatible with the Xbox Series X and many other platforms as well. The Arctis 1 Wireless gaming headset is $100 at Amazon, though it’s not currently in stock–you can order now, and Amazon will send it to you when more units arrive. You can also purchase it from SteelSeries directly for $110.
SteelSeries has some excellent gaming headsets, and the Arctis 1 Wireless is a great budget option that will serve you well into the next generation of consoles, thanks to its Xbox Series X compatibility. It’s also compatible with the PC and Nintendo Switch in both docked and handheld, thanks to the included USB-C dongle.

The Arctis 1 Wireless gaming headset boasts 20 hours of battery life and comes with a USB-C wireless dongle that works with the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode as well as a USB-C to USB-A dongle that allows you to plug it into the Xbox One and PC for wireless connectivity. You can also use the included 3.5mm audio cable to plug it into all devices with a 3.5mm jack–this includes PS4 and Xbox One controllers, in addition to the Nintendo Switch itself.
Of course, if you’re looking for a PS4-compatible gaming headset or just more suggestions, then there are a lot of quality options out there.
