Best Gaming Chairs Under $150

Under the $150 price bracket, a lot of gaming chair options are available. However, with such tight pricing, most of them fail to offer basic ergonomic features and comfort.

After thorough research, our team has created a list of 7 Best gaming chairs under $150 that fulfill the basic ergonomic standards and has good build quality.

Let’s quickly have a look at the list of products:

1. OFM Gaming Chair Ergonomic Racing Style

This chair’s design is inspired by racing car seats, however, it offers the comfort of a rolling office chair.

OFM Gaming chair is priced slightly above $100 and it is worth every dollar.

This chair has a durable build, its plastic base reduces the additional weight from the chair and increases mobility.

Other components like armrests and height-adjustment seats are firm enough to hold their position without bothering you.

To make the chair soft, stylish, and comfortable bonded leather is used.

The chair’s seat is flat and broad, however, the backrest of the chair is similar to a racing car’s backrest. The integrated headrest and lumbar support with thick padding are good enough to reduce stress from your body, straight for hours.

The armrests of the chair have a flip-up mechanism and can be adjusted at two different positions (45 Degrees and 90 Degrees). You can’t change the height of the armrest, therefore to feel comfortable while you are sitting, you must sit at an appropriate height on the chair.

Thick paddings on the seat and backrest are soft and comfortable enough to keep you away from fatigue, throughout the day.

The base of this chair has 5 dual-blade wheels that are smooth and stick to the floor even when you recline the chair at the maximum angle.

2. Soontrans Grey Gaming Chairs with Footrest

In this budget gaming chair, you get a dedicated retractable footrest and a lumbar support pillow with a built-in massager.

The multipurpose (Neckrest and Headrest) pillow can be handy for different situations. For instance, in case you want to take a short nap, you can use the pillow as a headrest whereas while playing games, you can use the same pillow as a neck rest.

In both situations, this super comfortable and smooth pillow will help your body relax.

On this chair, you get carbon fiber leather material, this is a very unique material and very smooth as well, We would appeal to all the manufacturers out there, to try out this material. It makes a budget chair look more premium.

Since this chair offers you features like a massage lumbar pillow and a retractable footrest, it compromises on armrests. On this chair, armrests are non-adjustable, though they have an adequate amount of padding on top.

Now, these linkage armrests could be a deal breaker for some, however, for us, it doesn’t matter considering the other features of the chair and its price tag.

If you have used a gaming chair before, these armrests should do well for you but if this is your first gaming chair, these might disappoint you big times.

Although you can’t adjust the armrests, with the recline, these move themselves to offer you sheer comfortable in different sitting postures. You can recline up to an angle of 160 degrees.

The height-adjustable seat is wide and feels comfortable even after hours of sitting.

At the bottom, the mute rolling caster wheels are wonderful. During late-night gaming, you can move around the room without making any noise.

The backrest of the chair has an integrated lumbar and neck support pillow. In our testing, it felt quite comfortable. We even tried sitting for longer durations and to our surprise, the comfort level was intact.

You won’t get the adjustable armrests, however, the fixed armrest are there and they are pretty comfortable. This chair doesn’t have a typical recline feature, instead, its rocking mechanism has a range of 90-120 degrees.

On the wide seat, you will get a thick layer of padding along with some memory foam. Overall the seat offers great comfort to the user even while sitting for a prolonged duration.

The extra soft headrest pillow eliminates strain from your neck and back of the head.

Using the mechanism knob (located under the seat), you can enjoy the rocking feature of the chair.

We also identified that the headrest pillow is U-shaped, initially, we were very skeptical about the design. However, later we found it more comfortable than traditional headrests.

You can enjoy a recline of up to 160 degrees. You can adjust the angle using the lock and control lever. From gaming to sleeping or resting, this chair is comfortable in every body posture. All the credit goes to the padding of the backrest and seat of the chair.

The dedicated Lumbar support does the job pretty well. You will find it extremely comfortable while reclining for a nap or stretch.

In the first appearance, you will find this chair extremely attractive.

The white bunny ears located at the top of the backrest add more cuteness to the chair, however, if you don’t want them, you can easily detach them.

You can go up to a recline of 160 degrees, and a few of our teammates found it appropriate and comfortable for a quick nap.

However, we felt that if it had a few more extra degrees of recline, it would have been a great option to play through the day.

At the same time, the retractable footrest comes in handy while reclining. It adds up additional support to our lower body.

While reclining, you will notice that the large size of the neck support pillow is holding your neck and head quite well.

The backrest is built ergonomically and has multiple points of contact that align with your back muscles and reduce maximum fatigue and stress.

Along with this, the side shoulder arch ensures a stable sitting and while sleeping, you won’t have to bother about falling off the chair.

The absence of adjustable armrests could bother a few of the users, however, for us, the linkage armrests were more than enough. You must note that your chair height should be properly set otherwise you will majorly miss the height adjustable armrests.

The strong steel frame and heavy-duty plastic base on this chair can hold a maximum weight of up to 250 lbs and we find it slightly on the lesser side.

We found this chair comfortable even after sitting for 3-4 hours without any breaks.
