Microsoft has already stated the Xbox Series X will support all third-party Xbox One accessories, but as far as the PS5 goes, it’s been a little unclear which ones will be compatible. Thankfully, one company has cleared up the confusion for its gaming headset line. Astro Gaming announced that all of its headsets will be compatible with PS5 and Xbox Series X as well as PS4 and Xbox One, though some may require a firmware update to work with the next-gen consoles.
Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X will work with Astro’s A10, A20 Wireless, A40, A40 TR, and A50 Wireless gaming headsets. As for pre-amps, the MixAmp Pro TR will work with both PS5 and Xbox Series X, while the Xbox Series X will also support the MixAmp M60 and MixAmp M80–the latter two MixAmps are designed specifically for the Xbox One controller.
While Astro’s C40 TR is one of the best PS4 controllers you can buy, it won’t be compatible with PS5 games. It will, however, work with any PS4 games on the new console, thanks to backward compatibility. The best Xbox One controllers, on the other hand, will be fully compatible with the Xbox Series X.
Unfortunately, we still don’t have a PS5 or Xbox Series X release date or price, though it is expected for them both to launch in November. Sony recently started taking PS5 pre-order reservations, and if you haven’t already, you should definitely sign up. Microsoft recently stated they’ll announce an Xbox Series X price and release date “when [they’re] ready.”
