Read more detail on our methodology below.

Best Xbox Series X controller : Microsoft Wireless Elite Controller: Black V2

Pros

  • Build quality greatly improved over the standard controller
  • Integrated battery lasts for ages

Cons

  • Asking price is quite steep
  • Scattered reports of face button stickiness

Price (RRP): $399.95

Buy at Amazon

Why we chose it

If you're looking to get an edge in your online gaming sessions, we highly recommend you set your sights on Microsoft's V2 Elite Controller, an accessory that currently has a 4.4 /5 star rating (after 11,000 Amazon reviews). This is a premium designed controller that offers the discerning gamer re-engineered components and a host of worthy improvements over the standard controller that comes bundled in with your XSX.

Case in points: adjustable-tension thumbsticks that let you dial in your steering and shorter hair trigger locks that allow you to fire your weapons faster. The comfort factor has been improved, too, thanks to wrap around rubberised grips.


Best Xbox Series X hard drive : 1TB Solid State Drive - NVMe Expansion SSD for Xbox Series X|S

Pros

  • Diminutive size allows it to be tucked away
  • Great read/write speeds and simple installation

Cons

  • The dollars-per-gigabytes breakdown is pretty rich
  • Scattered reports of data transfer failures

Price (RRP): $282.58

Buy at Amazon

Why we chose it

If you find yourself constantly running out of storage, Seagate's NVMe Expansion SSD comes highly recommended with a 4.8 /5 star rating (after 30K Amazon reviews). Given that Microsoft's generous Game Pass membership provides you access to four console generations worth of titles, owning one of these will quickly become essential for most XSX owners.

Honestly, at the time of writing you don't have many other avenues for storage alternatives. This is the only available expansion card that replicates the Xbox Velocity Architecture —providing faster load times, richer environments, and more immersive gameplay.


Best Xbox Series X headphones : Stealth 600 Gen2 XB1 Black

Pros

  • Light, comfy and wearable for hours on end
  • Easy connection to the XSX and great overall sound

Cons

  • Scattered reports of wireless connectivity issues
  • Microphone not best in class

Price (RRP): $169.95

Buy at Amazon

Why we chose it

Audiophiles looking to maximise their immersion should acquire Turtle Beach's Stealth 600 Gen 2 series as they're headphones that hold a 4.3 /5 star rating (after 762 Amazon reviews). Turtle Beach offers a more than respectable auditory experience and exceptional battery life for a modest asking price.

It's also worth noting that the Stealth 600 Gen 2 comes with in-built Windows Sonic support. For the layman, that's a surprisingly decent virtual 7.1 surround sound solution which for the most part delivers on the promise of precise, distortion-free 3D audio.


Best Xbox Series X TV :Sony X9000H 55' 4K Full Array LED Android TV 2020

Pros

  • Voice control with Google Assistant
  • Lets you upscale HD sources to near-4K with 4K X-Reality PRO

Cons

  • UI comes with invasive advertising
  • scattered user complaints of Wi-Fi connectivity issues

Price (RRP): $1,795

Buy at Amazon
Buy at Bing Lee

Why we chose it

To truly harness the graphical grunt of your Xbox Series X, you'll need to invest in one of the new HDMI 2.1 enabled TVs. Sony's X9000H is our pick of this litter and it comes with a 4.5 /5 star rating (after 1000+ Amazon reviews).

You're looking at a 4K Full Array LED with a low, gaming-friendly input lag of 7ms. The X9000H will also allow you to achieve the game-changing experience of playing select titles at 4K / 120FPS. Speaking of, it comes with two HDMI 2.1 ports, so if you're lucky enough to own a PlayStation 5 and an Xbox Series X you'll not need to hotswap them all the time.


Best Xbox Series X soundbar : Sonos Beam

Pros

  • Built-in Amazon Alexa for hands-free music, news checking, alarm setting, etc
  • Could do with punchier, deeper bass

Cons

  • Device cannot be used without a network connection and a user account with Sono
  • scattered user complaints of Wi-Fi connectivity issues

Price (RRP): $599.95

Buy at The Good Guys

Why we chose it

If you're after a smart soundbar that delivers an impressive auditory experience, the Sonos Beam comes with a 4.6 /5 star rating (after 110 Amazon reviews). Not only is this unit small enough to easily attach to the majority of modern smart TVs, it's also bristling with neat, Alexa-based innovations that make media navigation an absolute breeze.

When it comes to sound quality, the Beam's consists of four extremely capable full-range drivers, three passive radiators and a center tweeter. When hooked to your Xbox Series X, this three-channel system produces a convincing surround sound effect via Sonos's proprietary Trueplay software.


Best Xbox Series X peripheral : Beboncool Controller Battery Pack

Pros

  • Fast charging packs that last a long time
  • Multiple packs to ensure you're never without power

Cons

  • Wall charging option would have been appreciated
  • 3 charge slots for 3 charge packs would have made more sense

Price (RRP): $29.99

Buy at Amazon

Why we chose it

If you want to avoid the money trap that is the constant replacing of controller batteries, Beboncool's Battery Pack is your 4.8 /5 star rated answer (after 1.7K Amazon reviews). This power solution comes with multiple players in mind by offering three separate 2550 mAh packs (two spares may be charged in the unit, while one is in use in your controller).

Achieving a full charge for a pack will only take you 2.5 hours. Once full you can expect it to last for a decent 25-hour gaming marathon. Side bonus: this comes with an anti-overcharge board, for safety and peace of mind.


Best Xbox Series X steering wheel : Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel

Pros

  • Exceptionally smooth, quiet steering action
  • Powerful dual-motor force feedback

Cons

  • Still quite expensive after all these years
  • Feedback feels rougher than more modern wheels

Price (RRP): $399.95

Buy at Amazon

Why we chose it

Logitech's G920 is still a best in class wheel (despite being released way back in 2015) and it boasts a 4.9 /5 star Amazon rating from close to 10,000 customer reviews. It supports Xbox One and PC and has been confirmed to be fully functional with both the Xbox Series X and S as well.

Featuring quality construction, easy to access "face buttons" and dual-motor force feedback, the G920 is the best way to kick up the immersion factor in your racing games. Especially if you're playing a game that supports the 900-degree lock-to-lock rotation mode and you couple your wheel with a racing cockpit.
