For Xbox One Gamers
Proud owners of the Microsoft Xbox One are encouraged to check out chairs from companies such as Cohesion and X Rocker. These companies develop chairs specifically for console players.
The chairs are often equipped with on-board audio systems that allow the user to connect their Xbox One console to the seat and play game audio through the built-in speakers. This gives you an improved gaming audio experience while simultaneously supplying you with an awesome chair to plop down in as well.
A gaming chair for Xbox One is typically constructed of wood, fabric, and electronic components. Both X Rocker and Cohesion create seats using these sorts of materials.
The chairs usually run between $100 and $250 depending on the make and model.
For PlayStation 4 Gamers
Owners of the PS4 console also have numerous options available to them.
The X Rocker and Cohesion brands are great for this platform as well. There are other companies that make quality gaming chairs that work well with the PlayStation 4, too, though.
- V Rocker
Other brands exist, but these are the most notable.
Similar to chair models for the Xbox One, a gaming chair for PS4 is also usually mostly comprised of wood and fabric. Some of the X Rocker models also feature strong plastic materials that make up the arm rests, audio control panels, and other aspects of the company’s chairs.
Connecting one of these chairs to the PlayStation 4 console is often as simple as pairing it via Bluetooth or utilizing RCA cables from your TV to the chair’s audio input ports.
