Type of Chair
There are a few types of gaming chairs. There are rocker chairs that typically sit closer to the ground and pleasantly rock back and forth. Then there are stationary chairs that might or might not provide a few levels of incline. And finally, there are gaming chairs with wheels with many similarities to a standard office chair. Many people prefer them for PC gaming. Each of the three has its own benefits. But in the end, there isn’t necessarily a better or worse style as it comes down to your personal preference.

The primary downside with this chair is the comfort. Although the built-in speakers are awesome, the build quality is fantastic, and the design is magnificent; this chair lacks in comfort for a few reasons. For one, it doesn’t have lumbar support so you must sit kind of hunched. But some people might prefer that and if that’s you, by all means, you’ll love this chair.

Some gaming chairs provide built-in speakers and others don’t. However, many people believe that gaming chairs with incorporated speakers are more valuable for gaming since it enhances a surround sound effect. But there are a few critical questions to keep in mind for chairs with built-in speakers. Are they wireless, or do you have to plug the chair in via cord? How good is the sound quality? And my personal favorite, does the chair have an integrated subwoofer that vibrates the chair according to the game?
X Rocker SE 2.1
This chair possesses dual speakers incorporated near the headrest. Additionally, it comes with a subwoofer for enhanced bass. The overall sound quality is much better than the average chair with built-in speakers. You’ll also love that the subwoofer vibrates the chair bringing the video game closer to life. Unfortunately, the volume isn’t as loud as many people prefer it to be. But to end this on a positive note, you’ll love the ability to sit anywhere in your room with its wireless connection.

This sofa is visually pleasing for just about any gaming setup. Typically I don’t care much for curved armrests on a sofa.

You can get it in either blue or white, as well.
