Skip to the Buyer’s Guide to see what you need in a chair.


Buyer’s Guide For Gaming Chair Speakers

When choosing a gaming chair, look for the following types so that you get just what you need. They do make a difference, after all!

Racer Style Chairs: This combines the standard office-chair ergonomics with a bucket seat that you get in a race-car or sporty sedan. The original chair was debuted by DXRacer in 2006, who started as a manufacturer of seats for luxury car brands.

Rocker Chairs: These cool chairs sit right on the floor and have a sleek, curved design about them.  They sit right on the floor and they are great if you have carpet and cannot easily slide your chair around. You can stretch out your legs.

PC Gaming Chair: If you’re a PC gamer, you are going to need an office-style chair that may be like the one you use at work. You have to be able to sit comfortably for long periods of time, so get one that has comfortable armrests, a backrest, and maybe even a neck rest so you don’t get uncomfortable when it’s time to get serious.

Pedestal Chair: These are cool futuristic chairs that sit up off the ground a bit. They look really good and are not so low to the ground. They are great if you want a chair that’s easy to move around, but also helps you stay in one space without sliding around as you would with a rocker chair.

He was a little worried being a bit on the taller side, but we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to put this thing together and how well it supported his weight.

Not only did we sit back and play way too many rounds of Mario Kart in this thing, we also enjoyed how easily it reclined back for general relaxation like reading, practicing guitar, or just closing your eyes for some rest.

The Bluetooth connected very easily with all of our devices, even our PS4. It was great to hear the sounds of VR chat coming through crisp and clear.

Everybody who sat in this chair really liked what they felt. I heard basically no complaints about the way the chair felt. That being said, nothing is perfect.

You can even use the side panel to plug in your headphones to the PS4. The sound and clarity on this particular chair is pretty good for what you’re getting!

Assembly was pretty easy for us to do and took only about 20 minutes before we all had it set up and ready to go.

Conclusion

But it’s going to be very hard to do that if you don’t have the right chair. Be sure you consider these as you buy:

  • Do I need back support?
  • What about neck support?
  • How wide is the chair and can it hold my body with comfort?
  • Do I need armrests?
  • Is the material easy to clean?
  • How are the speakers?

Also be sure you are taking a look at product reviews so that you can see what other users said.

In summary, be sure your gaming chair has the support and sound you need to be the best at your game of choice.
