The chairs above are actually only a snippet of what’s available out there. With so many makes and models, that there is no way that we could have listed everything.
What is a Gaming Chair?
Simply put, it’s a chair for gaming. However that is where the simplicity stops.
If you are anything like me, sitting on the sofa just doesn’t cut it. I find I lean forward to get closer to the screen which makes both my neck and back hurt. There is no beer/coke can holder in the arm of my sofa, which is a must for a gaming chair…it’s thirsty work after all….!
How to find the right gaming chair for you?
There are many reasons to get a gaming chair. Finding one that’s just right for you is the tricky part. So below is our guide to choosing one that fits your needs.
Comfort is generally at the top of most game players’ lists. They either sit on the sofa or armchair, which to be honest, are not the most comfortable places to spend hour upon hour glued to the screen.
Let’s face it, having a gaming chair is cool. Your friends will be jealous when they come over and you just look like a pro gamer! There’s nothing better than sliding back into your chair ready for some serious gaming.
What helps, even more, is the awesome range of colors they come in. Racer Red, Sleek Leather, and Electric Blue are just some of the choices available, along with the more subdued colors that will blend into any office environment but still ooze comfort, coolness, and quality.
Hands up who loves their headset? I know I do, but I love my chair surround sound speakers even more. The sound quality is so much better and the bass can even make me jump sometimes!
So if the sound is important to you, then a chair with built-in speakers is a must. There are loads out there, the most talked about is the X-Rocker range of chairs, due to their sound and build quality.
In the zone
I don’t know about you, but unless I’m sitting fairly close to my screen, with the sound coming straight into my ears via either a headset or surround sound speaks as I talked about above, I just don’t feel like I’m in the zone.
I think my kill tally on COD is hampered when I’m sat too far away from the screen and I just don’t feel like I’m there….which is the main reason for a 3rd person shooter…right?
So by sitting in my chair, with built-in speakers, cup holder, and footrest, I have everything I need and I am in the most comfortable, ergonomic position to get into the zone.
X-Rocker Pole Position
The daddy of the X-Rockers, the Pole Position. Much like the 4Gamers PS3 chair below, the black and grey PU material along with the red stitched piping make this chair look and feel like it belongs to a professional.
With built-in vibration, subwoofer, control panel, and lockable swivel base you literally don’t have to move for anything!
Once you have figured out the instructions on how to set it up, you will be so glad you did as the sound, sitting position and comfort is simply great.
The arms on this chair also fold back which makes getting in and out a cinch
Hi-BagZ® Gaming Beanbag
Whilst a bean bag cannot have built-in speakers or accessory pouches, it does mean that you can put this chair in the corner of your room and it does not look completely out of place. When in use however there have been many reviews commenting on how comfortable it is.
As the filling is just simple poly beans, the comfort and support it provides are surprising. That said, because the filling is moveable, no matter what height you sit at you can maneuver the beans to make a headrest at the exact height you want it. This means there are many possible sitting variations, unlike many of the fixed position chairs out there.
The last point to make about this gaming bean bag is the price. Currently, at £40 on Amazon, it is an absolute steal. With prices of £70+ at Argos for the same size beanbag, you just can’t go wrong.
xStunt Wireless Foldable Gaming Chair
The stunt makers have hit a winner with this chair, which is one of the best wireless chairs out there.
Boasting a subwoofer with great bass, and surround sound speakers, and it’s compatible with all consoles including Xbox, PS3, and PS2. One of the main selling features of this chair is that it folds away for easy storage.
This chair also offers multiplayer connectivity meaning your friends can all connect and join in.
This combined with the subwoofer gives incredible bass and a much-improved gaming experience.
What’s more, the headrest is removable so you can adjust it to a position that suits you
GT 500 Leather Bucket Seat Office Racer Chair
This gaming/office chair is perfect for both everyday use and gaming. Its swivel function and adjustable height/back tilt are something you just don’t get with normal gaming chairs.
If you’re looking for a multifunctional chair that is both comfortable at a desk or in front of your TV playing FIFA 14, then this is a good choice.
The name GT 500 Racer Chair says all there is to say about how this chair looks. The bucket seat design and breathable mesh inserts make it look sleek like an Italian sports car.
This chair also has the red piping design that is in 3 of our top 5 gaming chairs (can you tell we like it?). It suits this bucket seat design to the ground and really does make a difference to the look and feel of the chair.
There is a 360-degree swivel, reclining backrest, and adjustable height, combined with adjustable armrests means you can get the seat just right for you.
4Gamers (PS3) Officially Licensed Interactive Chair
Whilst only suitable for the PS3, there was no way we could leave this chair out of our top 5.
The brilliance of this machine speaks for itself in the spec; it has a built-in vibration system, 2.1 speakers and subwoofer, a fully functional control panel for volume, bass, vibration, and headphone connection control.
Above all else, it actually looks like a PS3…as weird as that sounds! The sleek curves and the deep red-stitched piping make this chair look like it’s owned by a serious gamer.
There is a naive extra padded head section which means your head will sit in a comfortable place and you can relax your next muscle, leading to even longer playing times.
Why X Rocker Is The Best Choice for Gaming Chair?
X Rocker is brand news of gaming chair which is developed by Ace Bayou, a furniture design company in Tennessee, USA.
Our gaming chairs basically take over where Grandma’s rocking chair left off – Enjoying life while doing nothing except rocking in your chair and immersing in your inner world.
Now Ace Bayou has taken that front porch concept of staring at the stars and thinking about nothing to our modern way of relaxing… PC Games or any other modern media like Xbox, iPod, or DVD.
The X Rocker gaming chair gets many good reviews and is an amazing tool to take your gaming experience to the next level. Most customers are very happy with our gaming chair and are return customers after some years. They said a lot about the chair’s qualities which you could easily find on Amazon or Walmart.
