If you’re in search of the best chair for streaming then you’ve come to the right place.
A high-quality chair is essential for long streaming sessions. It should be able to support your body without any aches or pains and generally improve your whole playing experience.
To achieve such comfort, adjustability is a major factor for any chair. Everybody’s shape/ size is different, which is why it’s important to look out for adjustable features in the arms, lumbar, and seat depth, etc.
With this in mind, we will cover the best “racing style” and “ergonomic” chairs on the market right now.
What is the best chair for streaming?
15. BestOffice PC Gaming Chair
The BestOffice PC Gaming Chair is one of the best sellers on Amazon. It features a high back with lumbar support, a headrest, and flip-up arms. Furthermore, the racing style design comes in several faux leather colors including Camo, Grey, and Black/ White.
Besides the low price, what we like about this chair is that it’s incredibly easy to assemble. The package includes all the necessary tools as well as step-by-step instructions that are clear and concise. It should take no more than 15 minutes to put together until it’s ready to use.
In terms of the build, the seat is one part, and the base and arms are separate. A hydraulic spring on the base attaches to the bottom of the chair, and the arms attach using bolts. All of the components are BIFIMA certified to offer a maximum weight capacity of up to 250 lbs.
For under $100, you can’t go wrong for the price.
14. SPACE Seating AirGrid Mid-Back
The AirGrid SPACE Seating Managers Chair has a modern design that is built for functionality and comfort. It features multiple ergonomic adjustments including a 2-to-1 synchro tilt, pneumatic seat height adjustment, and angled adjustable arms.
There are a few different profiles of this chair with this one having the mid-back. The mid-back version helps to keep the weight down and particularly supports the lower back. Unfortunately, the back is not adjustable but it does have some give it to when you lean back against it.
In terms of the build, the cushioned seat has mesh on the sides and vinyl on top to protect against wear. The seat is not over or under stuffed and has some sturdiness when sat in. It’s not as comfortable as some of the most expensive ergonomic chairs on this list but is ideal for part-time streaming.
If you’re in search of a low-lumbar support style of chair, this is one of the best on a budget.
13. NOUHAUS Velour Office Chair
The Nouhaus Velour is a large racing-style chair that offers premium comfort. Much like a sports car, it has a bucket style seat that sits low and deep, and raised sides that position you snug. Once seated, you can forget about the outside world and grind out your gaming in peace.
In terms of the build, the seat bolts onto a 5-point base much like other racing-style chairs. The heavy-duty roller blade wheels and 5-point base can withstand up to 240 lbs. However, it’s worth noting that the seat width is quite narrow, although it’s recommended for users up to 6’1”.
For stand-out features, you’re getting a 135-degree tilt lock, flip-up armrests, and a class 4 hydraulic gas lift that lets you glide up and down safely. Undoubtedly the biggest selling point is the delightful Velour padding that lines the top of the seat and backrest..
All in all, it’s a premium gamer chair with fantastic materials.
12. Tribesigns High Back Desk Chair
The Tribesigns high-back ergonomic mesh chair is ideal for long hours of streaming. It has an attractive “executive” design that resembles some of the more expensive chairs out there. Along with an adjustable lumbar support, headrest, and 3-D armrests.
In terms of materials, the body is constructed with metal and nylon, and the heavy-duty “roller skate” wheels use a polyurethane blend. All of the high-quality components can support adults up to 300 lb, and there’s even a 5 years warranty for a worry-free experience.
This back of the chair uses a durable Nylon mesh that feels springy and elastic. As a result, this makes it extremely comfortable. The Nylon mesh helps to release pressure from the spine, and the front part of the seat cushion is padded with a native sponge to release pressure from the thigh.
For even more comfort, the backrest can tilt up to 150 degrees and can lock at 3 different angles.
11. KLIM Esports Gaming Chair
The KLIM esports gaming chair offers superior quality and excellent comfort. Unlike many other brands of racing style chairs that tend to skimp on materials, Klim manufacture a premium product that uses re-enforced steel, high-density foam, and faux leather.
With this chair, you pay a lot but get a lot in return. Instead of changing a worn-out chair every year or so due to poor quality, why not just buy one that lasts instead. In fact, Klim are so certain of the quality of their chairs they even provide a 5-year warranty in case anything should happen.
Besides the top-notch build, the aesthetics of this chair also looks great. If you’re not really a fan of ergonomic chairs (and want something with more style) then this product will probably suit you better. It’s safe to say that it would not look out of place at any esports tournament.
What’s more is that it’s completely adjustable for people between 5′ and 6’6″.
10. STAPLES Hyken Technical Task Chair
The Staples Hyken Technical Task chair is one of the most popular choices for streaming. Originally built for long hours in the office, it has a thin mesh construction that allows air to circulate between the chair and an ergonomic design that prioritizes long-term comfort.
For materials, the majority of the chair is made from heavy-duty plastic. The low cost, mass-produced components help to keep the price down, while still retaining the features and build quality that you might find on a more expensive model.
Some of these features include an adjustable lumbar support, headrest, and arms, as well as a fantastic tilt and lock feature. The tilt and lock feature removes the need for a physical lock. Instead, it has a safety mechanism that requires you to tilt back first before gliding into the upright position.
Overall, it’s an all-round quality chair for the price.
9. Hbada Ergonomic Office Chair
The Hbada office chair blends ergonomics with modern aesthetics. Inspired from aircraft design, it has a unique “Y-shaped” chair back that provides extra strength to the build. One of the main reasons for this is to support the fully reclining system that can flex back between 90 – 150 degrees.
This chair is built for comfortable streaming sessions of up to 8 hours. It has a thick high-density seat cushion that is soft and breathable, and the back moves with your posture to hold the spine perfectly. Just like the porous cushion, the mesh back allows air and body heat to pass through.
In terms of materials, the Hbada has a strong stainless steel base and uses plastic (or nylon) on the back and arms. As a result, it’s relatively lightweight and easy to maneuver/ assemble. One person should have no problems completing the assembly in less than 15 minutes.
To sum up, this is an impressive, (and stylish) ergo chair that looks a bit like a “racer”.
8. SPACE Double AirGrid Big & Tall
Our second chair by Space is the Big and Tall AirGrid. As you can guess by the name, this chair is built to accommodate the larger user (over 6 foot) and can support up to 400 lbs. It follows a similar office design to the “Mid-Back” by having a padded vinyl seat and an ergonomic mesh back.
If you’re a larger guy like Dr. Disrespect, you will love streaming in this chair for several reasons. The custom seat is wider and longer to better support your upper leg, and the thickness of the cushion has been improved for more comfort and stability.
Compared to the smaller Mid-Back version, the Big and Tall also features an adjustable lumbar support. To provide maximum comfort, this can move up or down from the back of the chair. Furthermore, you can also increase or decrease the tension that is required to “rock” the chair.
If you’re searching for a wide, firm, and well-padded seat (that is not a recliner), you will be very happy with this chair.
