X Rocker 5171101 Drift Wireless 2.1 Sound Gaming Chair, Black/White Checkered Flag
A list without at least one XRockeroffering would not be credible. This list is no exception. Racing game fans are raving about the XRocker 5171101 gaming chair. It provides a totally-immersive 2.1 sound experience with the AFM compatible woofer, two speakers and radio wireless receiver all built-in. All from the ground level.
The one downside is the size. It may be too small for the larger among us and don’t fool yourself. If it’s too tight around the hips it’s too small and will become uncomfortable after a while.
Gioteck RC-3 Foldable Gaming Chair – PC/Mac/Xbox 360/Xbox One/PS3/PS4
Not everyone has the space to have a gaming chair as a permanent part of the room furniture. The Gioteck RC-3 overcomes that by being foldable, easily put up into one of two incline positions and taken down again. It has plenty storage units for controllers and accessories. TV audio connectivity with all home consoles make it a strong purchase pick. If you are into that sort of thing, it has LED illumination.
X Rocker 0717901 Triple Flip 2.1 Storage Ottoman Sound Chair with Arms
Here’s XRocker again, but this time more suited to a domestic environment. This chair looks more like a normal living room chair. It has comfortable armrests, underneath storage space and connectors for headsets and RCA, two speakers and a sub-woofer. The XRocker AFM sound technology provides a bang-up audio experience.
On the downside it’s quite heavy and not easy to shift, and users report that it can have poor sound compatibility with some newer consoles.
Cohesion XP 10.0 Gaming Chair
A viable lower-cost alternative to the XRocker 0717901 is the Cohesion XP10.0. The super sleek styling features comfortable padding and the seat is adjustable for a quick bit of downtime. It’s easy to fold-up.
A down-side is that it is just a chair, with no inbuilt speakers. If you have them already, it feels comfortable enough to host you for an extended Call of Duty.
Also it seems to be sized for the younger and smaller gamers. It may be too small or uncomfortable for adults.

You will game for longer in greater comfort.
