Do Arctis Headsets Work with Xbox Series X?

Microsoft announced late last year that 99% of current "Designed for Xbox" partnered hardware accessories would also work with the next gen console, Xbox Series X. This of course includes headsets!


The best Arctis for Xbox Series X

The Arctis 9X has built-in Xbox Wireless, allowing it to connect directly with the console (just like your controller).

The Series X will feature the same wireless capabilities, allowing the Arctis 9X to directly connect to Series X - no firmware updates needed! In other words, the Arctis 9X will work with Xbox Series X from day 1, with all features supported.

The best Arctis for Xbox Series X + multiplatform

The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox works wirelessly on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X, and also wirelessly on basically all of your other devices (Android phone, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC)

Just like the 9X, it works wirelessly with Xbox Series X from day 1, no firmware updates needed!

Also compatible with Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X will still feature a headset jack on the controller, so if you have any of the wired Arctis headsets, including the Arctis 1 or Arctis 3, you will be able to easily use those with the Xbox Series X as well.

Technically compatible

While the Arctis Pro, Arctis Pro + GameDAC, and Arctis Pro Wireless were not designed specifically for Xbox One, we did provide some workaround guides to make them work on Xbox One.

Unfortunately, the Xbox Series X console does not include an optical audio jack, so the Xbox One workaround setup will not work. The only option for using Arctis Pro headsets with the Xbox Series X will be to connect them wired to the controller.
