Getting a gaming chair that is specifically designed for console gaming is a must if your play sessions are starting to get lengthier or if your body starts responding negatively to the endless hours spend playing your favorite game (back pain, anyone?). In today’s article, we’re going to talk exactly about that: the best console gaming chair in 2017, the best product to choose in order to be as comfortable as possible when gaming on your console of choice.
Gaming chairs for console gamers are different from gaming chairs for PC gamers, so you should always pay attention to the type of product you get. In most cases (if not all), even the best PC gaming chairs out there are not at all a good choice for gaming on a console. But we’ve got you covered and we’re ready to share with you below the best of the best. So let’s not waste any time and let’s see which are the best gaming chairs for console players in 2017! (The order of the products below is based on their price at the moment of writing this article).
Proxelle Foldable Video Game Chair
Despite its low price this console gaming chair has a lot of great features. One of the most interesting things about it is the fact that it’s foldable, making it extremely easy to store when not in use. It also offers nice built-in storage options for your accessories, as well as mesh pockets on the back and side for your phone or even more items.
It’s not very large so I think that particularly heavier people wouldn’t find it too comfortable, but it gets the job done for the price. It also offers nice audio immersion thanks to its 3W speakers built in to the sides. All in all, it’s extremely light, comfortable and durable and even though it doesn’t rock like many other gaming chairs out there, it’s a great choice for the money.
X Rocker 5171101
When it comes to video gaming chairs, X Rocker is probably the best known brand out there, always delivering top quality products. This particular model has the added bonus of being able to wirelessly connect to any source with RCA outputs (but RCA cables are also included). It also looks incredibly good, is extremely comfortable and allows for some great ground level gaming.
It comes with a 2.1 surround sound system (two built-in speakers and a solid subwoofer), with volume controls and a separate control for bass levels. All in all, a really good video gaming chair that everybody will love.
X Rocker 51259
Now it’s time to bring in the heavy weight! This is an amazing gaming chair for console gamers, offering a lot of features that you will love. For example, it comes with a built-in 4.1 surround sound system (4 speakers and a good subwoofer), as well as built-in vibration that syncs with the bass for improving your gaming experience and also making it a perfect choice for watching movies or listening to music.
It is really comfortable and I love the fact that it has easy to mount arm rests – these come in handy in many occasions, so it doesn’t hurt to have them. It’s comfortable and durable and it can be used by larger gamers as well without losing points for comfort or usefulness. Finally, it has the added advantage of being foldable, which makes it easier to store.
And we’re rounding our list up with another X-Rocker product. I was perfectly satisfied with just the three products above, when I realized that some come console gamers might still want a more traditional-looking gaming chair, one with a pedestal. And that’s exactly what this model delivers, together with a great overall quality.
It has an ergonomic design with arms and pedestal with tilt and swivel capabilities, being very comfortable even for larger people. It has wireless capabilities and offers a 2.1 sound experience thanks to its two built-in speakers and one subwoofer. Sturdy and high quality, this is the perfect choice for you if you need a pedestal video gaming chair.
These are our top 4 choices when it comes to the best console gaming chairs for 2017. You will surely feel really comfortable using any of the chairs listed above and, since they’re built for gaming, they will also help you ease up that back pain that you get after prolonged gaming sessions.
