This X rocker gaming chair comes at an affordable price that is hard to beat.
- Trustorereview
The X Rocker 51396 takes ergonomics to a new level. Sitting on the chair for long gaming sessions will not leave you with debilitating back pain. Building on that, it features exquisite gunstock arms that offer you better flexibility during gaming. It also has swivel capabilities.
- Extensively Reviewed
The base of the X Rocker elevates you and allows you to tilt and swivel so you can reach the utmost comfort. There are also gunshot arms which provide great support and an amazing feel. Not only is the chair incredibly powerful but it’s also remarkably stylish and cool looking.
- Thoroughly Reviewed
The setup and instructions for this chair are also extremely easy. You can be up and running in a short 10 minute period. There’s not a lot of setup required.
- Ultimate Game Chair
It’s incredibly comfortable to sit in and the sound gives an awesome experience for gaming.

The 2.1 AFM technology spices the sound with a subtle vibration effect depending on the volume. It feeds the sound to your ears through the head rest.

Don’t worry about your height. Regardless of how tall you’re, you’ll easily fit in this ultra-comfortable chair. This gaming chair isn’t limited to any age group. Anyone wants to relax & enjoy games can always utilize this chair.
- Go Gaming Shop
Amazing sound that gives you the thrill and feel that was never experienced before.
- Gaming Space
The main USP is of course the good sound system. It is actually a 2.1 surround system with two speakers right near your head and a woofer at the back side of the chair. It’s loud, crisp, and crystal clear.
- Best Gaming Chair
Some of my favorite features are the bass and volume controls (found directly on the chair) as well as the input and output jacks that allow you to link to your audio source. Obviously, the main advantage of this chair is the fact that it’s completely wireless.
- Top Gaming Chair
The 2.1 AFM technology incorporated into this gaming chair gives its excellent sound quality, which is amplified by using the open space inside the chair. Hence, it generates vibration sounds that boost each experience. You can actually feel the sound whether you’re listening to MP3s, watching a film, or playing an action game.
- Gaming Chairz
It has a wireless transmitter that makes it a less of a hassle when connecting with RCA outputs.

What experts didn't like
No padding on armrest. Not the most comfortable option for extended gaming sessions.
- BestReviews
The quality of this chair and the arms could be improved to last longer.
- Trustorereview
It doesn’t tilt back super far.
- Gamer Wares
Does not recline particularly far if that is a preferred position.
- 9 to 5 Ergonomics
July 28, 2016 | Full review
A few customers have complained about the maneuverability of the backrest. While it can swivel and tilt, leaning back specifically is limited. If your style is to get up close to the tv and look up, this could be problematic.

No power charger provided for transmitter.
- Go Gaming Shop
Cushion is not durable and wears out after sometime.
- Gaming Space
It is lacking of solid customer support.
- Best Gaming Chair
The cushion of the chair wears thin after a few months. This might cause some discomfort as a result of the tailbone coming in close contact with the metal bar.
- Gaming Chairz
The cushion is not very durable, and will require replacement very often.
