Why Get a Gaming Chair?

Why should you bother getting a gaming chair to use while playing your favorite titles on your Xbox One? Is it even worth the money? These are questions we hear all the time. And the answer isn’t so simple.

If you’re a dedicated gamer that spends countless hours in front of the screen it’s going to be a far more worthy investment than if you just play casually here and there. For most, buying a gaming chair is more or less for aesthetics than practicality – it’s just a fact.

If you’re looking purely for functionality you’re probably going to save a bit of money and get more bang for your buck by checking out some great office chairs for your gaming setup rather than getting a “gaming chair”.

By the way – if you’re looking for options for other gaming platforms, be sure to check out our list of the best PS4 gaming chairs as well.

#1 Option – Ficmax Ergonomic High-Backed Chair with Massage

This chair is the ultimate in reclining comfort! Besides the fact that it comes with a massaging lumbar pillow (with two separate vibration modes, no less), it was made with a broader seat and back than you typically find in the office style chairs.

The armrests are non-mobile when the chair reclines, however, they are height adjustable and thickly padded for maximum comfort and the perfect, ergonomically correct fit for you when you’re in the upright position. Sturdy casters roll easily across most surfaces.

  • Four color options: Black, Blue, Red, and White

This chair is one of the best on the market for gaming right now. It is priced under $150; it comes in 5 different colors, it is ergonomic, made of high-quality materials and has a 360° swivel.

#3 – Best Choice Products Leather Swivel Chair

This chair made number three for its ergonomic leather and steel design and higher weight capacity. Having received 4.5 stars out of 5, it retails for around $270, but we found it through Google express and Amazon for under $150.

This chair comes in three different colors with black as the primary color. There are bright orange, lime green, and light blue options for the accent color. The accents are done tastefully and are not overpowering so the chair would not look out of place if it were to be left out in a living area.

The backrest and seat move as one but the footrest moves independently and allows for a full, lay flat recline. The armrests on this model are fixed and will not move as the chair reclines; however, they are thick and padded for comfort during upright use.

  • Easy assembly with detailed instructions
  • Perfect for a console or computer gaming
  • Reclines and swivels
  • Sturdy construction allows for usage versatility
  • Headrest and lumbar pillows included

#4 – Ebern Designs Concepcion Gaming Chair

The price point has this chair ranking lower than the others. It is the second most expensive Xbox One chair on this list (besides X-Rockers with options listed further down the page), and it is a particular style. This chair, while touting great features like swivel and tilt, only comes in a Captain America theme. If you’re a big CA fan, then this may be the chair for you!

However, if you’re not, well, you may find the coloration a bit unusual or awkward. It made a list at all because it is still under $200 and it received 4.5 out of 5 stars. The folks who have used this chair say that it fits people of all heights and it is very comfortable for prolonged use.

The backrest adjusts independently of the seat, and this one has the unique feature of a center tilt. The chair does recline, but it can be permanently locked into a tilted position without having to be reclined by the tilt lock feature.

Non-Standard Alternative Xbox One Gaming Chairs

The ultimate gaming chairs of this style come to you in the many different forms of the XRocker!

Some X Rocker chairs have pedestals that will raise the chair off the floor, but many of them only sit directly on the floor on rocker rails. There are a couple of models that are more chair-like, but the main style of these chairs has them directly on the floor. Several models come with haptic feedback, and all of them provide wired audio.

Some of the higher end models offer Bluetooth audio and bass-centric vibration motors to immerse you in the sound entirely. For the chairs to work with the Xbox audio, both the chair and the Xbox One need to be connected to the TV (Xbox audio in – Chair audio out). However, you will have a personal surround sound. If your TV can broadcast over Bluetooth, this will also work, depending on the model.

Let’s talk about selling points:

  • Customizability allows for perfect price points
    • You can get a basic mesh model for $40 that still comes with built-in sound and RCA cables.
    • You can get a wireless, Bluetooth, top-of-the-line, leather model with adjustable arms, haptic feedback, and super comfy padding for $250-$300.
    • You can pick and choose your features and create a chair that fits your budget.
  • They come in a variety of colors and materials
  • Weight limits start at 275 and go as high as 400 pounds.
  • There is even a model that is less like a racing seat and more like a beautiful piece of living room furniture that has dual cup holders and reclines (It retails for around $350)
  • Most come with arms, but they are removable or will rotate out of the way

Let’s take a look at a few so you can see the customizability:

Here is the X Rocker Extreme X Classic:

  • It has a breathable mesh backing that will stay cool as you sit in it for more extended periods
  • Full back support
  • Built-in speakers compatible with all sound systems that hook up directly with RCA connections or can utilize a pass-through (such as Xbox HDMI to TV and TV RCA to chair) – cables included
  • Audio controls directly on the chair
  • Sits directly on the floor so it might be easily moved or stored
  • Low cost at only $40, this is a great value!

This model does not come with armrests, but it is well padded and perfect for gamers of all ages. Ultra-light construction and easily foldable design make moving this chair out of the way or putting it up for storage a breeze. The mesh backing is breathable and comfortable for long hours of use. The sectioned padding means comfort for all heights and ages.

How about the X Rocker Pro Series Pedestal 2.1:

  • This model comes with a pedestal, so it pivots and swivels
  • Gunstock armrests
  • Ergonomic design
  • Audio controls directly on the chair
  • Black leather with white stitching and grey piping
  • 2.1 sound system (this one includes a subwoofer)
  • Connect to multiple chairs for a shared experience!
  • This one is priced at the lower end of the mid-range at around $80

Besides it having the same compatibly and including RCA cables as the first X Rocker example, this model also has built-in wireless radio capabilities. While this chair does not recline when it’s on the pedestal, the mounting hardware can be removed, and it can be set on the floor to work as a rocker as well.

Check out the X Rocker II:

  • Here is another model that, like most of the X Rocker style, does sit directly on the floor.
  • This model folds in half for easy storage
  • Has armrests that fold back out of the way if not in use
  • 2.1 sound system
  • Multi-chair connectivity
  • Audio controls directly on the chair
  • Price point around the middle at $120 or so

This model is the one we chose for our gaming experiences. They do still hook up via the TV for Xbox One. Sound quality is excellent – total emersion! Having two of the chairs connected keeps the team on point.

Then there is the X Rocker Mesh Pedestal

  • This style features four separate speakers and a subwoofer that utilizes the audio-force design by Ace Bayou so you can feel your sound!
  • Still includes the standard RCA hook up for HDMI systems
  • Pedestal design raises players off the floor
  • Tilts and swivels
  • Striking purple mesh center surrounded by a black, cool-to-the-touch polyurethane seat
  • Ergonomic seat design with side-facing speakers
  • Folds down for easy storage
  • Armrests fold out of the way when not in use.

This chair is priced around the upper mid-range at around $190 and includes onboard controls for sound with separate controls for volume and bass. The sound mode can be modified mid-play to allow for the best set up for every game, movie, or style of music.

Now let’s see the X Rocker Pro Series H3

  • This bad boy has Bluetooth capabilities to hook up to your TV wirelessly, though it does still include the standard RCA cables
  • Back folds down for easy storage
  • Features additional vibration motors that sync with the bass to enhance sound emersion
  • Built-in controls for separate volume and bass control
  • Padded headrest and gunstock armrests (that do not fold away) for added comfort

This one is priced at the upper end of the average range, ringing in at an around $250, though we found a couple in the $130 range for a quick snag (limited quantity).

The X Rockers that have Bluetooth capabilities can receive audio from any device that is also Bluetooth compatible such as a phone, laptop or tablet. If your console has a Bluetooth mode, though, it will not receive that signal. For the chairs to receive the sound from the game, they either need to be wired into the TV and, so too must be the console, or your TV needs to have Bluetooth capabilities, so it might see and communicate with the chair.

The pedestal style chairs are about 18 inches off of the floor, and the seat height for the floor rockers is about 8 and a half inches. Some do require power adapters though many run on batteries. Most models have high backrests that support your whole spine and neck for comfort and stability as well as an excellent place to breathe a sigh of relief and do a good slouch after a long battle.

So, there you have it! These are the best finds of 2019 for the different styles of gaming chairs for Xbox One. These are, however, only a few of the options out there!
