As the console gaming is becoming more and more popular, the gamers want to have the best experience possible while playing their favourite games. So when our couch or chair aren't as comfortable as they used to be, it's time to go buy a gaming chair that has everything a gamer needs. The reason why we need a comfortable chair is that when we're sitting in an uncomfortable position we get tired and that affects our concentration and gaming experience overall.
That's why getting a high-quality chair is one of the first things a gamer should do. But the problem is that we have so many good chairs available that we just can't pick the right one. Knowing the struggle of getting the right gaming chair myself, I decided to write the review of best console gaming chairs available on the market right now, which will hopefully help you too.
Here is a list of the Best Console Gaming Chairs
console gaming chair
X-Rocker Vision Pro 2.1
1. X Rocker II
X Rocker II is the improved version of their first chair which was really successful. Because of that, we can expect that this version won't disappoint us either. The manufacturers wanted this chair to have a wireless audio, which is very important for most of the gamers. So if you had the first edition of this chair you will probably want this upgraded version too. Also, if you want to really want to enjoy your game without any distractions, you can just plug in your headset in the available jack.
Another thing that is important about this chair is the fact that you can sit in one position for hours and still feel extremely comfortable. Also, if you are the type of gamer that requires a lot of features from its chair, don't worry X Rocker II has plenty of it.
Maybe the most important feature of this chair is its design with full back support. I can't stress enough how extremely important is for the chair to have proper back support. We need to consider that the gamers are spending a lot of time playing their favourite video games and they mostly do it in the positions that are comfortable for them but actually it just hurts their back and they feel the consequences when it's too late. The ergonomic design that this chair has is what makes X Rocker II such a popular choice in the gaming industry.
As we said earlier, the manufacturers paid special attention to the sound that this chair produces and improved it significantly. Maybe you don't think about how important sound is to the overall gaming experience. But when you sit back, relax and start playing games in this chair, then you understand that the sound is the huge factor when it comes to gaming.The X Rocker has 2 speakers that produce magnificent sound whether you are playing games or just watching movies. So the only thing that remains for you is that you lay down and relax while vibrations send your body into an ecstatic state.
- Easy to use
The X Rocker has a construction made in the way that it can be folded and it's surprisingly easy to use. Its weight makes it easy for us to simply fold it, move it around when we don't need to use it, or we just need some extra space when we don't play. Also, it's very easy to clean this chair so you won't have any trouble keeping it look as good as new.
This chair isn't as cheap as you may expect, but I think that it's worth it if you consider what kind of quality are you getting for this price. So if you want to buy this beauty, you'll have to pay around $270.00
PROS & CONS
- Very comfortable
- You can set it up easily
- Simple to use
- Great design
- Doesn't have HDMI cable
The X Rocker II has 300 reviews, with the average rate of 4.1 stars out of 5 on Amazon and most of them are really positive, but it seems like that people don't really like the fact that this chair isn't wireless and needs extra cords. But not everything can be perfect, right?
2. X Rocker Pro H3
Another high-quality console gaming chair manufactured by the same company that made the X Rocker II. That means that it's extremely good and possibly the best gaming chair on the market. You can see that only by looking at the price, but if paying some extra money means that you'll be sitting on the best chair available, I think that's worth it. Just like the X Rocker II, this chair also has really good and useful features, so let's see what this one has to offer.
It doesn't matter if you are playing games, watching movies or just want to spend some time relaxing, this chair will allow you to do anything and still make you fresh and relaxed. You could be playing any game for hours in the same position and the design of this chair will make it look like you started playing the game ten minutes ago. That kind of design is very important when it comes to making high-quality chairs because comfort is very important for most of the gamers.
Only by listening to the sound quality, we can see that both X Rocker II and the X Rocker Pro H3 are made by the same company. The sound that the speakers in this chair produce is simply mindblowing. That's no surprise when you see that this chair has built-in 4 speakers with a great subwoofer.
Even if you somehow get tired in this chair, there's solution for that also. Preventing to get your neck stiff, the X Rocker Pro H3 has a headrest that makes sure that when you're finished with gaming, your head is as rested as it was before you started playing. Same thing goes for arms, this chair has arm support feature that prevents any tiredness.
PROS & CONS
- Great surrounding system
- It will make your body relaxed even after gaming marathon
- Arms and neck support
- Designed for shorter people
- Knee area feels uncomfortable
- Even though it's made out of real leather, material feels cheap
With almost 500 reviews on Amazon, this chair has an average rate of 4.2 out of 5 stars, which is really good. Most of the comments are extremely positive, but of course, not everything can be perfect. The thing that most of the people don't really like about this chair is that it feels like it's made for shorter people, so the taller people are having some troubles with it.
3. X-Rocker Vision Pro 2.1
X-Rocker Vision Pro 2.1 proves how dominant X Rocker is when it comes to making great gaming chair. This chair is also a proof how the X Rocker in a fantastic way combines the technology and comfort, two most important things when it comes to the gaming chairs. This chair is compatible with almost any gaming console you can think about, so it doesn't matter if you are the PlayStation or Xbox fan, this chair will work very well with your favourite console.
The sound system that is built into the X Rocker Vision can handle basically any challenge that comes across. So, it doesn't matter if the speakers have to deal with gaming or just listening to the music. The reason for that is that this chair has 2.1 sound system that with the help of 2 high-quality speakers gives you the ultimate sound experience. Also, you can control the sound as you wish with its control system. In case you want to keep anything you're listening to yourself, you can simply plug in your headset and enjoy.
- Arm and Neck Support
Just like with the earlier versions, X Rocker continues to pay special attention to arm and neck support. There's reason for that of course. These parts of the body tend to get tired easily, so it's very important to keep them rested. This chair also does a great job keeping both arms and neck relaxed and capable of staying in the same position for hours and still not feel tired at all.
When you are not using the chair, or you're simply moving it to another location, this chair makes the job easier and that's because it can be easily folded. So, thanks to its lightweight, you can easily store and transport this chair anywhere you want.
PROS & CONS
- You can be in one position for a long time and still feel rested
- Your arms and neck have a great support and stay relaxed even after gaming marathon
- Great sound system
- Needs a lot of batteries
- Padding can get worn out
On Amazon, this chair has the average rate of 4.0 stars out of 5.0, which is pretty solid considering that is very popular and has around 900 reviews. Most of the people are pretty satisfied with the X Rocker Vision, but there are some buyers who think that the materials, from which this chair is made out, could be a bit more resistant.
4. X Rocker Pro Series Pedestal
Many people think that this is by far the most comfortable chair available on the market and I think I have to agree. In most of the gaming chair reviews, you'll find this one at the first place and there's a reason for that. You can set up this chair in a matter of minutes and enjoy in every of its features.
The only feature that you may find a bit disappointing is sound. Although the sound isn't bad at all, it still can't compete with other models that X Rocker made. But even though the sound isn't as good as the one X Rocker II has, it's still pretty solid and the good thing is that this is the only thing that might disappoint you about this chair.
The vibration on this chair feels so good. Probably no other chair can compete with this one when it comes to vibration, especially when you turn this beast to the maximum!
If you're the kind of gamer who prefers using a headset instead of speakers, you'll find this chair extremely appealing. The reason for that is that this chair is compatible with almost every gaming console, so you don't have to worry about that.
PROS & CONS
- Best Seller on Amazon
- Powerful vibrations
- Compatible with most gaming consoles
- Sound isn't as good as other X Rocker models
- Materials get worn out
With 900 reviews and an average rate of 4.0 of 5 stars, this chair holds the title of a best-seller on Amazon. The people are pretty satisfied with this model, but there are a few exceptions who are complaining about the quality of the materials on this chair.
5. DX Racer FE08NB
Finally, we have something different than our first four chairs. This chair is a solid proof that the gaming chair doesn't have to to be made by X Rocker in order for gamers to like it. Just like the X Rocker chairs, gamers love DX Racer made ones and why wouldn't they, this model has lots of great features.
- Enhanced back support
DX wanted for this chair to be especially comfortable for our back and they managed to do it. In order to do this, they used some extra cushions which will help our spine a lot. So, kudos for that, because when we're gaming we don't pay special attention to our back and spine, so it's nice to know that our spine will be as healthy as it can get after the 5 hours gaming marathon.
When we were kids, we used to have fun only by rotating those huge office chairs. DX continues that tradition with this model by making it able to rotate for 360-degrees. Not only that swiveling in this chair feel so smooth and super fun but it's also some people might find it very useful.
PROS & CONS
- You can lean back without having to worry about chair breaking
- 360-degrees rotation
- Great neck and back support
- Some people may find it too expensive
- The tall people won't fit in this chair perfectly
This chair made by DX has an extremely high average rate on Amazon with 4.8 stars out of 5. Although 90 percent of the people who wrote a review couldn't be more satisfied with this chair, there are some people who think that this chair, just like many other, isn't designed for tall people.
Conclusion and Overall Best Choice
All 5 of the chairs that are on this list are the best ones you can currently get on the market. They are all undoubtedly great chairs which are made especially for console gaming. But for me personally, the best choice would have to be the X Rocker II. This chair has simply everything that one console gaming chair should have, from sound quality to back support. Also, it has a fairly reasonable price and it's very easy to use, so for me, that would be the best choice for every gamer.
