I am an avid PC gamer and I know what it means when it comes to sitting for long hours. I am not a professional gamer but I play several hours in the night with friends games like Cs Go and battlefield 4. I don’t get uncomfortable because of my ergonomic chair. Although it’s really not that much but at least it’s much better than the guest sofa or a guest chair.
Gaming chair gives you the total comfort when you play as there are some moments when you feel uncomfortable moving your mouse, pressing key or even feel inattentive. You move your back from backwards to forwards and then again to backwards to get more comfort to your back. You can only achieve this with a proper computer chair. I have listed the 5 best gaming chairs that are meant for PC gamers as well as Console gamers who like to play on the couch.
Executive Racing Office Chair-Black Red
This chair is from Best choice products and has got hundreds of reviews. Some of them are not good but some preferred it very much. The racing type design of this chair is the reason I brought it to this list. Now you get both the PU leather and perfect chair for gaming purpose just under $100. PU leather for some is not good but for some it’s good as it provides good comfort and is easy to clean.
The Chair is perfect for a person like me who is 5 feet 8 inches tall. But I won’t recommend it to a 6 feet tall person as it’s not meant for tall people. Otherwise your head won’t be resting on the headrest. But some 6 feet tall people have still used it and they said the headrest is no issue for them. They just simply rest their necks on the head rest and it’s fine.
The Chair is very good built and the backrest and seat is 10/10 in comfort. There are a few cons in this chair which are the armrests and a weaker wood in inside. It’s fine when you lean backwards but if you put too much pressure on it, it might break as some users said. But at this price you just can’t complain it’s reliability as well as it’s lumbar support that makes you sit straight. It weighs only 32 pounds and is best suited for a person who weighs around 200 pounds.
The seat height is adjustable and the wheels are also fine for moving on the floor. But you can’t make it move properly on a carpet. So if you want it to use it on a simple floor in an office or home without carpet, it’s perfect for you.
Merax High-back Ergonomic Pu Leather Chair
The first on the list is the chair from Merax which has a lot of computer chairs in different colours and styles. This chair is very good padded and gives total comfort all around. The soft PU and mesh fabric upholstered face makes it very comfortable to sit without pain for long hours and the extra higher backrest makes it more comfortable to your back and head unlike the simple ergonomic chairs which may or may not have extra higher backrest.
The armrests are also padded and are flippable. I don’t recommend flipping it while gaming but this gives you freedom to sit more comfortably when you are not working.
The chair is 360 degree rotatable and has a strong heavy duty chair base with casters for greater stability which also moves smoothly on carpet. But the con which I saw in this chair is that it doesn’t recline backwards much. So you can not take a lot of rest like a sofa but it’s a continuous working chair with lumbar support which will support your back for long hours.
Weight: 39.9 pounds
Dimensions: 27 x 27 x 47 inches(As stated by amazon.com)
Arozzi Enzo Series Gaming Swivel Chair
Arozzi Enzo Swivel gaming chair is designed in a manner that it looks very attractive and eye catchy. It’s somewhat much different than the previous chair but the comfort is comparable. I found two bit differences in this chair and the previous one.
First one is the back rest which has a big hole in an oval shape(or something similar) which is good for breathability of upper body and head. The second one is the design of the arm rests. Arm rests are fixed and you cannot change it’s height or flip it backwards like the Merax chair which may be con for someone who wants a more modular chair. But the arm rests are stronger than the Merax Chair.
The seat, backrest and the arm rests are well padded to give you more comfort for several hours. It can easily support weight upto 270 pounds but I have seen customers as heavy as 300 pounds using it without any problem. It may take more than 30 minutes of work to assemble it but you can do it alone. The result will be the image at the left side.
Weight: 37.5 pounds
Dimensions: 26.8 x 15.3 x 34.6 inches(As stated by amazon.com)
X Rocker 51396 Pro Series Pedestal 2.1 Video Gaming Chair
Now two of the best simple gaming chairs I have listed above, it’s time to get hands on this one. X Rocker 51396 Gaming chair is the all round system to sit on and create a surround gaming experience. Well this one looks more like a couch then a gaming chair. It will give you the best comfort you are looking for and can be used for multi-purpose.
It comes with 2 speakers and one 2.1 woofer that will make you feel you are in the game. I like these type of technologies. Really, when you place your speakers on the desk or at the corner of the room, you feel good but the sound is not so close as with this chair. With the help of built-in woofer the gun shots and the scream of zombies will sound too real.
Along with speakers, it comes with heavy padded back rest and seat for more comfort. The speakers are placed at the left and right side near the headrest which will create good sound effects right in your ears. This chair is good for pc gaming as well as console gaming and the cost is very reasonable.
- Connects with multiple chairs for the ultimate gaming experience
- Two speakers and a subwoofer use 2.1 AFM Technology for a total sound immersion experience
- Built-in radio wireless receiver and included wireless transmitter work with any source with RCA stereo outputs; optional RCA cables included
- Ergonomic design with gunstock arms and pedestal with tilt and swivel capabilities
Weight: 54 pounds
Dimensions: 28.5 x 23 x 23.5 inches(As stated by amazon.com)
The Couch Chair(cheapest option)
Cohesion XP 2.1 Gaming Chair with Audio
This one is more like a couch than a chair. But it’s good for console gamers. Or if you like to play your pc games on a couch then this one is fit for you. It’s cheap, light and can be put anywhere inside a house. You can use your controller on a pc or you can just play on your consoles on a Big HD TV.
You can lay it on the floor giving it wall support and have 3d sound effect. Just like the previous one it has two speakers just at the left and right side of the head rest but lacks the woofer. But as it is cheap as a pizza, you can’t expect more at this price.
The weight hardly measures 19 pounds and can be folded like a normal bedsheet as the cover is made of a cloth. This is really very portable and good for it’s price. But because it’s cheap the quality is really not that good but it’s good for children not for heavy adults.
There is another chair from X Rocker which has better quality but it’s more expensive. Here is the link.
Weight: 18.9 pounds
The Ultimate Choice
Akracing AK-6014 Ergonomic Series Gaming Chair
This one is luxury and not everyone can afford it but it’s not that much expensive also. The chair is of racing type and is considered one of the strongest computer chair in the market. It has a strong metallic frame which makes it the most reliable of all in this list. The chair looks absolutely gorgeous from which ever side you see it. Everything from strength to comfort is here in this chair.
It has a very strong backrest which is also very good padded and the armrests, seat are also padded adequately. The padding is neither too much nor too less. It’s the perfect amount for comfort and style. The backrest, armrests and the seat are adjustable unlike the previous chairs. The armrests are specially useful if you can adjust their height according to your computer desk and height.
The base is also metallic and have 5 coaster dual wheels for easy smooth movement on the floor and carpet. Unlike the previous chairs mentioned(#1 and #2), it can decline very much so you don’t have to worry about whether it will break or not with some force. The strong metal frame and a good decline angle which this chair is provided with is unmatchable and is reliable for years. I can not find any con in it. Simply amazing!
