Any Arctis headset can technically be plugged in to the Series X controller via 3.5mm jack, but since they aren't all designed for Xbox, you won't have full use of all their features.

If you already own any Arctis headset, your headset is compatible when you plug into the Series X controller via 3.5mm, so you don't need to worry about getting a new headset unless you want to upgrade.


I hope this helped answer your questions about Xbox Series X headset compatibility!
