Review: The Nacon Pro Compact is an excellent Dolby Atmos Xbox controller

Nacon’s feature-packed controller includes built-in Dolby Atmos support and a customisation app

With a built-in Dolby Atmos licence, an interesting companion app, and a surprisingly great D-Pad, the Pro Compact is a strong alternative to a standard first-party Xbox controller. Once your muscle memory adapts to the repositioned and resized buttons it's a great controller.

  • Built-in Dolby Atmos licence works perfectly
  • Its accompanying Windows 10 app lets you tweak the sticks and triggers
  • The D-Pad is surprisingly brilliant
  • A little smaller without being uncomfortably so
  • The smaller triggers and repositioned menu/capture buttons take getting used to
4 / 5
