The SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox solves a problem that shouldn’t exist. Buying one decent pair of wireless gaming headphones is expensive enough; asking gamers to buy two is downright criminal. And yet, Xbox One owners know all too well that Microsoft does its own thing when it comes to wireless protocols.

Not content to employ either Bluetooth or standard 2.4 GHz connectivity, Microsoft instead requires headsets to run on the same frequencies as its controllers. This creates a ridiculous situation in which wireless headsets are either compatible with PCs, PS4s and even docked Switches, but not Xboxes. Or, from the other perspective, a wireless headset might be compatible with the Xbox One, and absolutely nothing else.
