So, you’ve decided to get a gaming chair. And not just any gaming chair but a serious rig with speakers to give you full immersion in your game.

The only problem is that there are a lot of choices.

There are a slew of gaming chairs out there for you to choose from but that doesn’t mean they’re all good options.

For one, there’s a huge range in quality and the materials used to build the chair. You want to balance out quality with price – a task often easier said than done. There’s also a huge difference in sound quality between certain models.

Don’t worry, we’ve got it all figured out for you. In this article, we’re going to talk about the best gaming chairs with speakers that are available right now.

Best Gaming Chairs with Speakers

We’ve got variety, price differentials, and some really great options for every price point and every gamer type. There’s truly a gaming chair for everyone on this list.

Finding the right gaming chair with speakers is often a matter of budget and quality. The more money you spend, the better equipment you often get but not always.

Sometimes the best all-around option is what you want and, if that is the case, then the X Rocker 5139 is perfect for you. This chair has substance and style. It isn’t the most mobile option but it is a high-quality construction that will keep you gaming for hours in comfort. We’ve got bolster cushion pillows that are tufted within an inch of their life wrapped in supple black leather that is both soft and durable.

We’ve got two speakers and a built in subwoofer as well as an all-over vibration function. Perhaps the single biggest feature that you will love but aren’t really looking out for while shopping is the X Rocker’s wireless connectivity. We’re talking robust connections with most of your gear and the added convenience of eliminating wires. In terms of price, this gaming chair will set you back about $200 which isn’t a lot but it isn’t cheap either.

We think it’s just right in about every area but that’s up to you.

Pros

  • High-Quality Materials
  • Comfortable, Ergonomic Design
  • Easy to Move But Limited Mobility

Cons

  • Limited Mobility
  • Pretty Big Footprint
  • Fairly Pricey

  • ALL PURPOSE GAMING CHAIR: Leather lounging game chair can be used for playing video games, watching movies and TV, listening to music, reading, and relaxing.
  • COMPLETE MEDIA EXPERIENCE: Chair incorporates four forward facing speakers, audio force modulation technology, and ported power subwoofers into the open space inside the chair for full immersion in...
  • ADDITIONAL VIBRATION MOTORS: The Pro Series H3 includes additional vibration motors that sync with your audio's bass tones to create an even more powerful full-body sensation keeping you comfortable...

If the 51396 is too much for you, maybe you need a chair that is more grounded. As in literally on the ground.

That’s what you get with this chair which has everything that the above model has but without the immobility. You get quality sound and speakers here that take the immersion level up a notch.

You also get the expertly designed ergonomic surfaces with supportive cushions.

There are also four speakers and armrests as well. The armrests are fixed, which is somewhat unfortunate. Also, the surface is vinyl which doesn’t have the best feeling – especially in the heat.

The only thing that might make you do a double take is the price. At $250, this chair is oddly expensive given the fact that it sits on the ground. Even so, it’s a traditional gaming chair and should be compatible with pretty much anything you throw at it.

If you need something that can be easily moved around and possibly stored away when not in use, this is a great option.

Pros

  • Padding Makes This a Great Floor Gaming Chair
  • Four Speakers for a Ton of Sound Immersion
  • Vibration Feature

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Vinyl Covering
  • Fixed Armrests

  • Materials: Vinyl, Rails, Arms, Foam, Audio, Subwoofer, Metal
  • Color: Black W/Grey
  • Style: Contemporary

For the gamer that has to have it all, there’s no better chair than the Michael Anthony collaboration with X Rocker. This is a premium, luxury gaming chair that leaves no stone unturned when it comes to features and amenities. It also blows every other chair on this list out of the water when it comes to price. But, first, we’ll discuss what we love about this supreme gaming chair. We’ve got padding for days. Armrests, headrest, and lumbar support as well as bolstered cushions that look like a mix between Emperor Palpatine’s throne and a 1980s supercar.

Accompanying all of this are two massive speakers and a sub along with easy-to-reach controls – all on a floor base.

Styling is decidedly gamer chic and everything is tied together in a great, coherent package. Now for the bad part: The price. At $399, this chair is beyond expensive and, for what you get, we can say it isn’t worth it.

Still, some gamers want a premium option and here it is.

Pros

  • Premium Materials
  • Really, Really Comfortable
  • Awesome Speakers

Cons

  • The Price
  • It Sits on the Ground
  • A Bit Much All Around

4. Fortnite OMEGA-R Gaming Rocker Chair

  • Fortnite OMEGA THEME This Fortnite Omega inspired gaming rocker features accents that allow you to rep your favorite outfit along with the Fortnite logo embossed in the headrest Stain resistant...

Ok, hear us out, for a branded chair this OMEGA-R is pretty stellar stuff. Sure, the biggest drawback is the whole Fortnite branding on it but, if you’re into that game, then that could be a huge positive.

Who are we to knock it? So, let’s get down to brass tacks: What do we get with this Fortnite gaming chair? You get a sleek, modern design that falls between gaming chair and office chair aesthetic with bolstered cushioning and armrests.

There is a cohesiveness to the design here that some of the other chairs lack and we appreciate that.

Also, the yellow and silver highlights make this chair an exceptionally tasteful gaming chair. Gone are the bold and brash neons and basic palette colors. Instead, you get a markedly adult chair that combines gamer aesthetic with modern tasteful decor. Standing on top of a unitary swivel pedestal, the hair isn’t very mobile. Another thing we have to point out is that it doesn’t come with installed speakers but, instead, has branded speakers that are purchased separately.

That makes sense because it gives consumers options. Still, at $199, you would expect a little bit more here. We have to mention this option because it is so unique for its modular design, but it falls short compared to many of the all-in-one units on this list.

Pros

  • Cool Design
  • Great Value for the Money
  • Sturdy Pedestal Support

Cons

  • Not Competitive with Some All-in-Ones
  • Fortnite Branding
  • Colors are Taste Specific

5. X Rocker 51092 Spider 2.1 Wireless with Vibration

  • RESONATING SOUND: The exclusive AFM Audio Force Modulation technology creates vibrational audio that intensifies every gaming and movie experience
  • IMMERSIVE WIRELESS MEDIA EXPERIENCE: Chair incorporates wireless audio transmission, 2 speakers near the headrest and a 4" subwoofer in outer part of the backrest, providing a low rumble intensifying...

Maybe the first two options were too much for you in one way or the other.

For those consumers, the 51092 from X Rocker is the perfect middle ground. Have you noticed that we love X Rocker chairs? That’s because there really is not better manufacturer out there.

They combine style, substance, and, above all, a sense of quality that is hard to find out there.

What do you get with this chair? For one, you get a gaming chair with presence.

Think captain’s chair type of footprint here. While we normally wouldn’t recommend a recliner, this gaming chair is so close to one that it might enter into your consideration if you’re game for this.

What baffles us is the price.

At $129, it’s one of the cheaper options on this list. What does that get you aside from presence and size? You get adjustable arms, a durable and easy to clean vinyl covering, and a versatile, multi-use gaming chair that can easily go from a hardcore FPS session to a film viewing.

This chair will give you a lot of use for its price and we can’t help but like that.

Our complaints are few and pretty much relegated to the materials and overall feel of the chair.

It doesn’t have a premium feel. The cushions are adequate and it doesn’t offend but it doesn’t go out of its way to wow you either.

Pros

  • Presence and Size
  • Unique Style
  • Versatile

Cons

  • Some Materials Feel Cheap
  • Can Feel Unstable at Times
  • Jack of All Trades, Master of None

6. X Rocker 5142201 Commander 2.1 Audio

X Rocker Commander 2.1 Sound Wireless Pedestal Video Gaming Chair with 2 Speakers and 4" Subwoofer -...
  • ALL PURPOSE GAMING CHAIR WITH SPEAKERS: Faux leather outer with stylish breathable fabric back and seat, high back tilt & swivel pedestal game chair can be used to play video games, watch movies,...
  • IMMERSIVE WIRELESS MEDIA EXPERIENCE: Chair incorporates wireless audio transmission, 2 speakers near the headrest and a 4" subwoofer in outer part of the backrest, providing a low rumble intensifying...
  • DURABLE EASY-TO-CLEAN MATERIAL: Polyester material is durable and breathable, keeping cool during hours of use. Easily cleans with a damp cloth

Captain’s chairs make some of the best gaming chairs out there. We know they’re not for everyone, but that doesn’t stop them from ticking off most of the requirements that many of us seek in our gaming chairs.

The Commander 2.1 with robust speaker system from X Rocker is a commanding choice in this segment and, really, is only lacking because of the absence of a vinyl cover or more easily maintainable exterior cover. Let’s start off by going over all of the things we love about this chair – and there are many.

For one, it’s a mature design that works anywhere. If you need a gaming chair that does part time as an office chair, this is a great option.

But it doesn’t sacrifice comfort in the pursuit of versatile styline. It definitely looks like an entertainment chair of some kind.

What you get is thick cushions and bolstering that you would normally expect to see in a car seat or something more substantial. In other words, the Commander knows you’re going to spend hours sitting on it so why should that time spent be miserable?

Also, the two speakers and sub pump out sound like you wouldn’t believe.

This is a killer feature for this chair and, like many options from X Rocker, will make you happy to have saved money on a surround sound system if you don’t yet have one.

One drawback that we can’t help but note is the polyester cover.

This is tough to clean but, with a little bit of innovation, could be maintained if you covered the chair with something else.

We would recommend that because the cover is, again, really not the best for years of use.

But, given the price of $149, this chair might just be for the next five years and that’s enough for most consumers.

While the missing headrest and lumbar cushion definitely make it standout when compared to other gaming chairs, the Commander more than makes up for this in an overall package that’s designed to please.

Pros

  • Excellent Full-Body Support
  • Priced Just Right
  • Versatile Styling

Cons

  • Polyester Cover Hard to Clean
  • No Headrest
  • No Lumbar Cushion

7. X Rocker 5129101 Pedestal Video Chair 2.1

  • ALL PURPOSE GAMING CHAIR WITH SPEAKERS: Stylish breathable fabric back and seat, high back tilt & swivel pedestal game chair can be used to play video games, watch movies, listen to music, read and...
  • IMMERSIVE WIRELESS MEDIA EXPERIENCE: Chair incorporates wireless audio transmission, 2 speakers near the headrest and a 4" subwoofer in outer part of the backrest, providing a low rumble intensifying...
  • DURABLE MESH & SUEDE OUTER: Breathable mesh is the perfect surface for those intense gaming sessions. Microfiber faux suede stylish outer cleans easily with a damp cloth

This is a great option for someone that needs a gaming chair with speakers that can also double as an office chair. The design is understated and appropriate for an office setting.

Plus, it has adjustable armrests and tilt and swivel functions for ultimate comfort and adjustability.

Even though it is understated, the gaming chair is still fashionable and has a sturdy base that conveys stability and quality. Indeed, the overall look and feel of the chair can best be summed up by that description.

The cushions are plump and supportive as well as notable for their durability and longevity.

Many reviews cite the 5129101’s long term aspects as a reason to buy, and we agree. It isn’t a cheap gaming chair, though.

At $190, it is pretty darn expensive. It doesn’t come with leather or anything fancy in terms of materials, but it is probably one of the most comfortable chairs on this list. In terms of things to complain about, we’ve got an assembly time that is a little more than we’d like and a mesh surface that is weird for this segment.

It’s weird because it’s hard to clean which definitely shortens the lifespan of this chair.

Overall, we’d say this chair is a lot of you take the good with the bed.

Pros

  • Sturdy Base
  • Versatile Design
  • Convenient Control Panel Location

Cons

  • Mesh Fabric
  • Tough Assembly
  • Expensive for What It Is

8. X Rocker 5131901 Wireless Pro Series Video Rocker with Vibration

Maybe the gamer in your life (or yourself) needs something that just gets the job done – but has fun doing it.

For that gamer, the X Rocker Video Rocker with Vibration is a great choice for several reasons.To start, it is a sturdy construction that is composed of some of the strongest, highest quality materials you can get.

This thing is heavy – and durable. But it’s almost too heavy. You might need help putting it together or moving it depending on how strong you are. That’s how serious the materials are that make up this chair.

As for luxury amenities, they are pretty few. You get awesome speakers and a really cool vibration function that almost makes the chair a great substitute for a surround sound system.

Being on the ground also gives the chair a lot of stability and keeps it grounded. When you’re thinking about a purchase that will last the tests of time, this chair passes most of those with flying colors.

Pedestal chairs and those with legs often wear out a lot quicker than those that sit on the ground, for example.

The big tradeoff here, though, is that you lose the mobility and, in some ways, the comfort those chairs provide. Speaking of which, the cushions here are adequate and, given the extra support provided by the ground, the chair should remain a comfortable place to be for hours on end. Covered with vinyl, the chair is also easy to clean and maintain.

Built for console gamers, wireless connectivity and interfacing with consoles is a cinch. We definitely recommend it for that audience but PC gamers will probably want to look for something that can raise and lower itself rather than a pure gaming chair such as this option. Price wise, this chair comes in at the mid-range with a price tag of $165.

Pros

  • High-Quality Materials
  • Stable
  • Durable

Cons

  • Really Heavy
  • Mainly for Console Gamers
  • Not Very Mobile

9. X Rocker Extreme III 2.0 Sound Wired Foldable Video Gaming Rocking Floor Chair

X Rocker Extreme III 2.0 Sound Wired Foldable Video Gaming Rocking Floor Chair, with 2 Speakers-... Opens in a new tab.
  • ROCKER GAMING CHAIR WITH SPEAKERS: Video gaming, race seat designed chair can be used for playing video games, watching movies and TV, listening to music, reading, and relaxing.
  • AUDIO MEDIA EXPERIENCE: 2 side facing speakers in headrest provide great surround sound intensifying your game, movie, or music
  • CONNECTS WITH MULTIPLE CHAIRS: Control panel includes separate volume and bass controls, and input and output jacks for connecting to your audio source so other X-Rocker chairs can join in multi-game...

If you choose to go with a floor gaming chair, you want it to be two things: Comfortable and big enough to do what you need it to do.

The Extreme III is the perfect chair because of this. Sporting a swooped out design that makes it appear as if it is a bird with wings outstretched, this chair is the definition of “accommodating.”

That means that gamers of all sizes and body types can comfortably enjoy this gaming chair.

Coming in two main color schemes as well as a ribbed, padded design, this chair is lightweight and portable as well as foldable for long term or short term storage.

In terms of overall space and versatility, we think this chair is perfect for gamers that are lacking in space but need a good gaming chair on tap.

The speakers pump out great sound while not overwhelming you or sounding tinny as many options in this segment tend to do.

We recommend it for console gaming, but we could also see someone watching movies and the like with this.

Comfortable, durable, and adequate in all of the areas that matter, the Extreme III is a great choice for gamers that want a gaming chair but don’t want it to exist as a monument to gaming.

And the pricing is just right. At $99, the Extreme III meets the needs of a broad range of consumers and should be a consideration for anybody that needs a cheap but sufficient option in this regard.

Pros

  • Excellent Price
  • Neat Design
  • Good for Gaming or Watching Movies

Cons

  • Might Not Be Enough for Some Gamers
  • Floor-based Chair
  • Other Chairs Offer Better Support for Just a Little More Money

10. X Rocker Drift Wireless Black and White Checkered Flag 2.1 Wireless Foldable Rocking Video Gaming Floor Chair with 2 Speakers and Subwoofer

X Rocker Drift Wireless Black and White Checkered Flag 2.1 Wireless Foldable Rocking Video Gaming... Opens in a new tab.
  • ROCKER GAMING CHAIR WITH SPEAKERS: Video gaming, race seat designed chair can be used for playing video games, watching movies and TV, listening to music, reading, and relaxing.
  • RESONATING SOUND: The exclusive AFM Audio Force Modulation technology creates vibrational audio that intensifies every gaming and movie experience
  • IMMERSIVE MEDIA EXPERIENCE: 2 speakers near the headrest and a 4" subwoofer in outer part of the backrest, provide a low rumble intensifying your game, movie, or music

This chair is purportedly for racing gamers, but it makes sense for everyone.

Except PC gamers that is. Because who wants to use a PC while sitting on the floor?

Not many people that we know. So, what do you get with the Drift? You get a stylish checker flag accent running down the middle of a well-cushioned semi-U shaped rocker chair.

Cushions are workable, the speakers are adequate, and the cover is durable without being indestructible.

Pricing comes in at under $100 which makes this not only a competitive option but a budget one as well.

Our only concern is the big picture.

We don’t see this chair lasting for a long time and it probably isn’t ideal for an adult gamer. Still, as a budget consumer choice, the Drift is adequate in every way.

Pros

  • Cool Styling
  • Great Speakers for the Price
  • Awesome Price

Cons

  • Not Great for Adults
  • Sits on the Floor
  • Thin Covering

11. Cohesion XP 2.1 Gaming Chair with Audio

Cohesion XP 2.1 Gaming Chair with Audio Opens in a new tab.
  • Gaming chair; made to be used while you're playing video games
  • Has two wired receiver audio speakers built into the chair
  • Also equipped with volume control and in/out headphone jacks

This option is last on the list for a reason and that’s because it offers the bare minimum to make it to this list as well as the bare minimum you would ever need in a gaming chair with speakers.

The Cohesion is a floor-based (naturally) gaming chair with two speakers and a basic volume control as well as an outlet for headphones.

Covered in thin polyester, the cushions are somewhat flat and rigid. This chair looks more like a toned athlete than something pillowy and bulbous like many other chairs we’ve discussed here.

On the positive side, it is extremely lightweight and putting it together is brainless and takes no time at all. It’s also about $99 which makes it by far the cheapest option on this list.

Now, as for the negatives, it is the cheapest on this list and it has everything wrong with it that comes with that. It’s not that comfortable, it’s not that durable, and it’s speakers aren’t that good. It’s a gaming chair, but that’s about it.

Pros

  • Cheap
  • Decent Speakers
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Cheap
  • Awful Cushions
  • Bad Cover

Conclusion

Finding the right gaming chair with speakers doesn’t have to be hard. Even so, it’s still not easy. We hope the options on this list have given you some idea of what’s out there.

Trust us, any one of these would make a great addition to your gaming setup.

The biggest distinction that we think you have to make in your search is whether you want something that is on a pedestal or legs or something on the floor. Once you’ve figured out what you want in that area, the rest is a pretty easy task of eliminating those that you want or can afford from those that you don’t. All of the chairs on this list offer a competitive and compelling value so there’s no real “wrong” choice here. Any of them will fit your gaming needs and should help you game in comfort. Best of luck in your search for the perfect gaming ch
