Gaming chairs with Bluetooth speakers and vibration

If you have been gaming for a minute then you know how important sound is to your gaming session. The most important aspect of gaming chairs with speakers is how much they immerse you into the gaming session. You can also enjoy the chairs when watching movies and listening to music. 

Have you ever gone to a movie theater and enjoyed your favorite movie with surround sound? What if you could turn your gaming experience into that level of enjoyment? You can, if you invest in a video game chair with speakers. 

In this guide, we will show you why you need a gaming chair with speakers. And even highlight the seven best chairs with speakers you can buy today. 

What are gaming chairs with speakers?

Gaming chairs with speakers are chairs that have speakers built into them. These chairs are designed for not only gamers, but all audiophiles that love to listen to music while relaxing, listen to podcasts, and so forth. 

Just like with all the other chairs, you need to do some due diligence when choosing a gaming chair with speakers. This is because not all the chairs are made equal. They are available in many different types, they come with varying numbers of speakers and even varying quality of sound. 

Further, you should also ensure that you consider the other important aspects of the chair. Like comfort, adjustability, ergonomics, design, upholstery material, and many others. 

There are three main things that provide the appeal for gaming chairs with speakers for professional gamers. These are; 

Placement of the speakers – Usually the speakers are placed near the headrest on both sides of the chair. The subwoofer is usually situated on the bottom or back of the chair. These placements ensure you get an immersive surround sound experience.

Connectivity – A gaming chair will not be useful if it has speakers but cannot connect with other audio devices. Most gaming chairs will provide you with the option to connect to your console and other audio devices wirelessly through Bluetooth, through cables, or both. 

Compatibility – what good would the gaming chair be if it cannot connect with all your gaming consoles? Computer chairs with speakers allow you to connect with Xbox, Playstations, Nintendo, and all other types of gaming consoles that you may have. In some instances, you might need to purchase extra cables. But in other instances, you get all you need with the chair. 

Types of gaming chairs with speakers

Usually, gaming chairs with speakers are available in three main types namely;

  • Floor gaming chairs with speakers – These gaming chairs sit on the floor. They have a curved base that allows you to rock the chair back and forth. They are also commonly referred to as rocker gaming chairs due to the fact that they rock back and forth. This types of gaming chairs are common with professional console gamers. 
  • Pedestal gaming chairs with speakers – These gaming chairs do not sit on the ground but they are elevated like office chairs. The only difference is, these ones are elevated using a pedestal and not the usual five-point base found on typical gaming or office chairs. These chairs can be used both at a desk or in the living room for console gaming. 
  • Conventional / traditional style gaming chairs with speakers – These are chairs elevated using a five-point base. These gaming chairs offer more adjustability options than the first two categories. This is because they can be height adjusted, they have adjustable armrests and they recline. If you work at a desk or game on your computer, this type of gaming chair is the one for you. 

Benefits of gaming chairs with speakers

So why should you spend money investing in a gaming chair with speakers? There are several benefits: Here are some of them.

First, you will get a great emphasis on what is on the screen. Take for instance an action-packed scene with explosions and gunfire. If you are only looking at it or gaming without sound it will not be impactful. Now, imagine the same scene with loud explosions and blazing sounds of gunfire surrounding your ears just like you are in a movie theater? Wouldn’t that be awesome? These gaming chairs bring the action on the screen to life through sounds. 

Secondly, did you know that sound improves your gaming skill? Yes, research has shown that most professional gamers or those with good skills at gaming are those that game with sound on. This is because sound and music from the games engage and immerse you more into the game. 

Another benefit of gaming chairs with speakers is that they evoke emotional responses from you. When you are more emotionally invested in the game you enjoy it more. And even perform better in it. Take for instance a solo mission where you are battling opponents. Fast and aggressive beats can pump your adrenaline and enhance your performance. 

Sound can also enhance your performance when you are in multiplayer game mode. If you hear your enemies you can easily pinpoint their locations and be able to attack them before they see you. Getting to the first with an accurate shot might be all you need to win the game. 

Sounds make gaming seem more realistic. The small sounds like cars whooshing, people gossiping in the background, cars honking or robots beeping their way through are clear indications of a busy technologically advanced town. If you are passing through enchanted forests, expect sounds like the slow whistling of the wind, your feet against the grass or vegetation, and crickets chirping in the background.  

Investing in a gaming chair with speakers is way cheaper than buying a soundbar or a home theater system for gaming at home. Although these systems have way better sound than the gaming chairs, they could be out of reach for people on a tight budget. Investing in a gaming chair, therefore, becomes the easiest and most logical way to get sound with your gaming. 

Finally, when you invest in a gaming chair that has audio you avoid using headphones. Headphones are great but they are tiresome. Ask someone who uses them for more than one hour and they will tell you how they can cause fatigue. With a gaming chair, you get sound that is up close and immersive just like with headphones but without the fatigue they cause. 

How to set up chairs with speakers

There are two main ways that you can connect the gaming chair with speakers and vibration to your consoles and other audio equipment. 

Connecting wirelessly

First, most modern audio gaming chairs will come with the option of wireless Bluetooth connectivity. Usually, the Bluetooth transmitter is built into the chair which makes the connection quite easy and automatic. 

For other chairs, you might get a transmitter that you use to connect the chair to your devices wirelessly. Some transmitters require AA batteries while others charge as they transmit audio. So you never have to buy any batteries. The latter is more preferred. 

Connecting using cables

The other way through which you can connect the gaming chair to your devices is through cables. The cables to use are can either be auxiliary cables or RCA cables. Cables are great because they do not need to be charged and can work for hours on end. 

But, the downside is also that having cables connected to your gaming chair can increase clutter around your gaming area. Also, if you forget you are connected using cables and move the chair you risk yanking the cables. 

2.1 or 4.1 Speaker system?

Gaming chairs with speakers come with either 2.1 or 4.1 surround systems. The 2.1 system is the most common. This system consists of two speakers and one subwoofer. The latter 4.1 system contains four speakers and one subwoofer. 

The choice between these two systems is definitely a matter of preference but also quality. A high-quality 2.1 surround system will provide crisp sound and feel better than a 4.1 system of low quality. Ensure therefore that you go the extra mile to check what kind of speakers they use and the sound quality you should expect. 

However, if you want more sound coming at you from many different directions, then the 4.1 system is the way to go. 

Now that you know the benefits of gaming chairs with speakers and vibrations, which one should you consider? There are many such gaming chairs in the market from different brands. They are three different types and come with an array of other features, for instance, gaming chairs with footrests.

We, therefore, compiled a list of 7 top gaming chairs with speakers that you should consider. We have reviewed all of these chairs before so we know what sets them apart from the rest. Here are the chairs we were particularly impressed with; 

List of the best gaming chairs with speakers

  1. GT Racing GT 890M.
  2. X Rocker 5172601 Surge
  3. GTRacing  GT890MF Series
  4. XRocker Pro Series H3
  5. X Rocker 517401 II SE
  6. X Rocker 5172901 
  7. X Rocker 5143601 SE

GT Racing GT890M

The GT Racing GT890M is our top pick for a gaming chair with speakers. The chair is in the traditional gaming or office chair design and is available in five different colors. It comes with two speakers strategically positioned on the side bolsters of the chair. I enjoyed how this position led to an immersive 360 degrees sound experience. 

The biggest downside with the GT890M is that it doesn’t have the Bluetooth transmitter integrated into the chair. You have to purchase the chair together with the Bluetooth transmitter from GT racing to connect the chair wirelessly to your audio devices and consoles. 

When fully charged, the speakers can blast for five to six hours so you have enough time for full-day gaming. You can also continue to game when the chair is connected or charge the chair when you are not working. It takes three hours to completely charge the chair which is a bit too long if you ask me. 

The Bluetooth adapter offers a decent range of about 5 meters. As such, you can easily connect with devices that might be in another room without having to drag them close to your gaming desk. 

When it comes to matters of comfort, the GT890M offers some decent features. The armrests are height adjustable. The chair is made using a metallic frame that offers support and promotes proper posture. I really liked how the chair reclines all the way back to 170 degrees. You can therefore always find the right position for different tasks. 

The cover material is standard PU leather. Although it looks exquisite especially in blue and grey colors, it can get quite warm and uncomfortable several hours into your gaming. The cushion is not all that thick neither is its memory foam. But, you get a thickly padded seat using a high-density cushion.

What we like
  • It has a metallic frame that promotes good posture and provides good support
  • The chair is quite affordable and good value for money
  • It comes with a deep recline plus rocking function to keep you relaxed as you game
  • The sound produced from the speakers is quality and quite immersive
  • The speakers can last for a whole six hours on a single full charge
What we don’t like
  • The armrests are only height adjustable
  • The upholstery material is standard PU leather. Nothing special there.

X Rocker 5172601 Surge

The X rocker surge is one of the best floor gaming chairs with speakers in 2021. The chair fulfills two of the most important qualities of a gaming chair – comfort and quality. The black finish with red piping and stitching stands out and gives the chair an elegant finish. The design is also very modern and easy to fit into any living room. 

The Surge 5172601 floor gaming chair is very sturdy and supportive of your body. It is designed with ergonomics in mind to ensure you are comfortable even with prolonged sitting. The frame is designed to always ensure you are seated in the right posture. 

The base of the chair is curved to allow for easy rocking back and forth much like you are seated on a normal rocking chair. Further, the cushions on the seat and the backrest are thick, supportive, and comfy. 

The downside to the X Rocker 5172601 is the lack of arms or armrests on the sides. If you are used to placing your elbows on armrests then this chair can get a bit awkward for you because it doesn’t have armrests.

The chair comes with a 2.1 speaker system that allows you to enjoy the crisp sound and low rumbles from the subwoofer. Bluetooth connectivity is in-built into the chair making wireless connectivity with your consoles and other devices a breeze.

When choosing a gaming chair with speakers, make sure to also consider other features and factors that are important to you. For instance the upholstery, cover material, and footrest among others. 

We have chosen some of the best gaming chairs with speakers and vibrations that you can find in the market right now. We have only included chairs we have tested ourselves so we can stand behind what we say. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but one we think is definitely worth considering. 


Are floor gaming chairs good for your back?

Yes, floor chairs are better for sitting than normal lifted chairs. Anecdotal and clinical research has shown that different ways of sitting place different stresses on our bodies. Clinical research has shown that sitting on the floor promotes better posture than sitting on a conventional chair. When you sit on the floor using a floor chair you spread out your legs reducing pressure on the hips and knees which is highly recommended. 

The other benefits of floor sitting according to Healthline include increased mobility, increased flexibility, less hip tension, it encourages natural stability, and it is more active. Sitting on a floor chair gives you all of these benefits while reducing the risks associated with sitting on the floor without a chair. So investing in a floor gaming chair is a win-win for you.  

Can you connect the Bluetooth gaming chair to pS4?

Yes, you can connect Bluetooth gaming chairs to PS4. However, the connection is not all that direct in some chairs whereas it is in others. If the chair comes with in-built wireless Bluetooth technology it might be able to connect to your consoles directly. 

Some chairs have Bluetooth connectivity but this is to the Bluetooth adapter they come with. Therefore you first connect the chair to the adapter and use the adapter to connect to the PS4. As you can see this is not directly from the chair, but you get the end result of getting sound from the console to the chair. 

For other seats, the only way to connect is through cables. That is somewhat limiting especially if you do not want to have cables running everywhere in the house. 

Do gaming Chairs vibrate?

Yes and no. Only gaming chairs that have vibration technology actually vibrate. A gaming chair without this kind of technology will not vibrate even if it has speakers or a subwoofer. There are two types of gaming chairs with vibrations. Massage gaming chairs and gaming chairs with speakers. 

Massage gaming chairs have vibrations usually positioned and directed to the lower lumbar region of the back. These vibrations offer soothing massages that relieve lower back pain and ensure you are comfortable for long. Massage gaming chairs must not have audio or speakers for them to vibrate. The vibrations are a feature of their own.

Audio gaming chairs that vibrate have vibrational motors that are synced with the audio of the chair. Thus, the chair vibrates in sync with the sound being produced. This means that the chair does not always vibrate rather it vibrates only when it experiences sounds of certain levels. This really immerses you into the game since, besides sound, your body also feels the sensations of the game. 

Can you connect the Gtracing chair to PS4?

Yes, you can connect the GTracing gaming chair to PS4 consoles. The connection differs depending on the chair model or the features it comes with. Some have the ability to connect directly with the console while others require cables for connectivity. The cables might be included in the package or you might need to acquire them separately. Please note that the connectivity procedures will be included in the package when you purchase the chair making it easy for you.
