For Xbox One:

Obviously, the audio cable connectivity is much more convenient and stable enough for uninterrupted sound transmission.

So, simply plug the micro-USB cable into your headphone and connect it to the computer or power bank or power socket via an adapter. Your Beats Studio 3 will begin to charge and after an hour, you can try connecting it.
