Do you just want to play your game and listen to your music or do you want to immerse yourself in the experience?
I’ve been gaming in one form or another for roughly 30 yrs. It’s easy for the whole day to pass me by while I was just going to do a couple of things to set myself up for the next session. Sitting for a long time though can be really hard on your back.
Let’s face it. You need a good, sturdy chair that will support you throughout the entire gaming session.
This may not be for the casual gamer, but if you’re a real gamer and want the full experience, this is the gaming chair for you. You will feel every blast. The guy next to you trying to sneak up on your right? You’ll know because you’ll be able to hear it and you’ll be able to blast him before he can blast you.
This chair will help you get the edge.
The People In The Seat Said What?
This x rocker gets some amazing reviews. 744 reviewers have given it 4 out of 5 stars. A very few reviewers claim that there is a bar or something coming through the cushioning that they can feel, however most say it is very comfortable. Great sound quality that is quite loud can be heard coming from the 5 speakers on this chair. Even with every day use most are still enjoying it long after purchase.
There is a sub-woofer in the back of the chair that vibrate with the bass so that you don’t just hear the explosions you will actually feel them. Two speakers on either side of the chair and two more down near the seat will give you enough volume to easily hear everything going on around you in your game. If you are gaming late at night and don’t want to disturb your parents or roommates there is a headphone jack as well so that you are the only one who can hear the excitement. Just don’t forget and yell when you make that game winning head shot.
Pricing is also very good on the X Rocker 51259. It’s pretty stable at about $179.99 and even with purchasing an adapter and a surge protector you should still be under $200. That’s not a lot of money for this quality of chair. Most other chairs at this price point have only 2.1 sound instead of the 4.1 you get with this chair.
Things You Need To Know
Putting together this X Rocker 51259 is so easy a 10 year old can put it together. You merely remove it from the box, unfold it and add the arms with the included hardware. In less than 20 minutes you are ready to enjoy.
It can be moved if you are in a small apartment or room. This chair weighs about 55 lbs so it may be a little heavy for some to move. A great feature is that the X Rocker can be folded and moved out of the way when not it’s not being used.
Another great feature of this chair is that if you are buying multiples they can all hook together so that the experience can be enjoyed by all.
The chair is made of easy to clean vinyl so you don’t have to worry about ruining or staining the chair if you like to eat and drink while you game or watch a movie. The only color option is black and the arms are not adjustable.
This particular X Rocker only sits about 8.5″ off the ground. If you have bad knees or a bad back it may make it difficult getting up and down out of the chair. However people of all ages, from 5’4 to 6’3 have said this chair is right for them. There is a weight limit of 275 lbs though. The exact dimensions of the chair are 35.24″ H x 24.41″ W x 33.86″ D
Unfortunately at this time the X Rocker 51259 cannot be shipped outside the US.
What You Get/What You Need
There will be cables in the box for connecting the chair to older model tvs and gaming systems. To connect to PS4, XBOX One, Wii U and newer model tvs you will need an audio to HDMI adapter. These sell for less than $15 usually so it’s not too bad.
You will need AA batteries to connect the bluetooth to your phone, tablet or headphones. These are not included so make sure you have some on hand before the chair is delivered. I recommend rechargeable batteries just so you don’t have to invest in cases of batteries for those big raids.
The power cord is short, so if you don’t want to be up against the wall I would say get a surge protector. This is a good idea anyway as it will help to protect your investment from lightning strikes.
Let’s face it. If you are a true gamer who plays more than just an hour, you are going to need to have a seat that is comfortable for those long gaming sessions. Having multiple consoles systems that you play on regularly? Then this is definitely the chair you need. While there are a few extras you need to buy for this chair to make it truly compatible with the newer console systems, there is not another chair at this price point that can get you immersed as deeply in your gaming experience.
