If you have been gaming, you know that built-in speakers can take your gaming to another level. Imagine experiencing every aspect of the game through sound just like you were there. This is the power of the x rocker 5143601 II SE Gaming Chair.
The x rocker 5143601 II SE 2.1 gaming chair is a floor gaming chair meaning that it sits right on the floor. You could also place the chair on any stable platform where you wish to use it.
You could be wondering why you should consider a chair that sits on the floor. Science has proven that it is more comfortable to sit on a floor than sitting on a chair. Just to mention a few benefits, sitting low engages more muscles in your body and your core. It also enhances flexibility and mobility.
Investing in the x rocker 5143601 II SE therefore can help you enjoy the many benefits of sitting on the floor. Furthermore, since you are not actually sitting on the hard floor you will not experience any bad side effects.
We tested the Xrocker 5143601 II SE 2.1 gaming chair to bring you this review. Without further ado, let’s help you figure out if this is the gaming chair for you.

The x rocker 5143601 II SE is immediately inviting. The plush foam and faux leather upholstery give the chair an overall elegant and inviting look. Typical gaming chairs are known to be garish in their designs.
However, the x rocker II SE series takes a different approach. The chairs are covered in black leather with accents of silver on the armrests and rocking base. This silver and black finish is subtle and elegant and suits any modern living room.
After three weeks of using the x rocker II SE, everything is still in place. The foam isn’t deformed and the stitching on the leather is just as good as new. It appears to me that the chair will last for long.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I get a lot of relief from using floor chairs especially when I have been sitting on a normal chair. I feel like it opens up my body and engages the core more. Still, I do not feel fatigued on the back or neck.
The only downside to the x rocker 5143691 II SE Gaming chair is that it might not be the very best for big and tall guys. Getting on and exiting the seat can be problematic for some people. Plus, the backrest is too short if you are above 6 feet tall.
Adjustability and ergonomics
Floor gaming chairs are made with an executive office chair in mind minus the base and all the fancy adjustability mechanisms. However, they are ergonomically designed to ensure you are comfortable while on the seat.
The x rocker II wireless SE 2.1 comes with a curved base placed on silver arched bases that allow you to rock back and forth while using the chair. Leaning on the backrest is heavenly thanks to the heavy padding.
The chair comes with fixed armrests that are easy on your elbows. Whether you are gaming, watching a movie, or listening to music, you will get a perfect position for your elbows with the armrests.
However, these armrests are not the 4D adjustable armrests you will find on office chairs and typical gaming chairs. But, you at least get armrests unlike in the X Rocker Surge gaming chair that doesn’t have any armrests.
Ace Bayou 2.1 Wireless Audio System
The most compelling feature of the x rocker 5143601 gaming chair is the built-in wireless 2.1 sound system. There are two forward-facing speakers strategically positioned near the headrest of the chair. These chairs are crisp and produce decent midrange sounds.
At the back of the chair is the subwoofer that provides the bass. The open location at the back of the chair provides a good rumble making you “feel” the bass quite literally. You can adjust and bass easily using the side-mounted control panel.
The audio system is easy to connect through cables and wireless connections. However, there are also jacks for manual connection to your devices through RCA cables. You can also get an output connection through the 3.5mm jack.
The sound is immersive and great for music, games, and movies too. What I didn’t like about the chair is that it has to be connected at all times to use the audio system. The cord is a bit short at about 6 feet long and therefore you need an extension cord every time.
That is not all, in this era of Bluetooth, HDMI, and WiFi-ready devices, the x rocker II SE Gaming chair feels outdated with the cable and RCA connections. However, you can use an external wireless connector to connect wirelessly which means more expenses.
X Rocker 5143601 II SE Gaming Chair Value
Is this floor gaming chair value for money? From the interaction I have had with the chair, it is quite impressive for the price. It is comfortable and has a decent sound system. If you do not mind getting on and exiting a floor chair then this chair will serve you really well.
