Most expensive gaming chairs in the world for 2022
These are the most expensive gaming chairs you can buy on Amazon. Some cost as much as a new car!
So, you want to see the most expensive gaming chairs available to the general public. We say this because we’re sure some custom-tailored chairs/Battlestations cost as much as small apartments and aren’t targeting regular Joes. And let’s not forget the one-off stunts like the Acer Predator Tronos Air. Design experiments that often aren’t even available for purchase, unlike most regular gaming chairs. But today, we’re showing you the most expensive gaming chairs you can buy online; right this moment if you want. In other words, we’re showing you the most expensive gaming chairs available on Amazon.
The selection process was simple: we’ve only included chairs that have at least one rating and ones that don’t look like scam setups (offering regular, low-quality gaming and office chairs at unreasonably high prices). The results include over-the-top gaming stations that look like they’ve come from Cyberpunk 2077, over-the-top gaming stations that look like they’ve come from Terminator, and a selection of regular, high-quality gaming chairs. In other words, this is a proper list of the most expensive gaming chairs; we’ve got no duds here.
Finally, if you prefer office chairs over gaming ones, we’ve got you covered. The end of the list includes a selection of high-quality (and expensive) office chairs we would recommend to anyone looking to spend four figures on a gaming chair. Last but not least, when in the market for a new gaming or office chair, always try the chair you want to buy in person, if possible. Before we dive into the list, we’d like to share our lists of the best RGB cases and the best RGB motherboards. Our guide for the best Nanoleaf alternatives makes for a perfect buying guide trifecta for everyone looking to refresh both their rig and their gaming room.
1. JFF Game Cockpit: Most expensive gaming chair overall
Super-expensive, motorized gaming chairs/Battlestations populate the first part of this list. We’re opening the list with a “Game Cockpit” by JFF. Just looking at this gadget can lead to physical eye pain, especially if you look at that price. At almost $40K, this is the most expensive gaming chair we’ve found on Amazon.
Is it worth the list price? Of course not, don’t be silly. But technically, this is the most expensive gaming chair we could find, so it deserved a spot on this list. On the outside, the Game Cockpit looks like it came from Cyberpunk 2077.
The color scheme, the angular design, and the sheer brutishness of the thing screams “Cyberpunk.” And then we have the ridiculous price that seals the deal. Looking at specs, this battlestation has it all. You have a high-quality gaming chair at the center of the whole thing. It features stuff like lumbar support with massage, automated recliner function (127-degree tilt), retractable footrest, seat heating, adjustable armrests, and more.
The whole construction weighs in at more than 700 pounds (333 kilograms) and uses a 300 W power supply. If you’ve searched for a physical embodiment of over-the-top, this is it. The Game Cockpit is almost two-meter tall (nearly six feet), and it looks like it only supports one monitor. With that said, we’re confident you can mount multiple monitors onto this behemoth.
2. IWR1 IMPERATORWORKS: Most expensive all-in-one gaming chair
IMPERATORWORKS looks like a serious brand when it comes to over-the-top gaming chairs/Battlestations. Their products sport “just” four-figure prices, and some of the designs don’t look ridiculous. Our favorite, and our pick for the most expensive all-in-one gaming chair, is the IWR1.
First of all, this “chair” doesn’t rock an outrageous price like the first pick on this list. Next, the chair placed in the middle of the setup looks like it’s super comfy and of high quality. Made of leather, with soft padding, lumbar support, and mechanized reclining control (up to 128-degree angle), it improves the previous chairs.
Other features include multiple cup holders, padded armrests along with a massive keyboard and mouse tray, support for up to three monitors (or a single 49-inch ultrawide unit), mechanized leg rest, motorized monitor arm (or whatever you want to call that thing), USB hub on the chair itself, and a massage function. Overall, this is a great all-around gaming chair/rig. It doesn’t have a ludicrous price, and it is the first motorized chair on this list that’s worth buying.
3. Noblechairs Hero: Most expensive classic gaming chair
Okay, we’re leaving the world of unbelievable motorized gaming chairs behind us and entering the realm of your everyday high-end gaming chairs. Noblechairs make the most expensive regular gaming chair we found on Amazon. The Hero chair features a minimalist design without many details and aggressive, gamery elements. And we like it.
The chair’s available in black, with the only color you can pick the stitching color. You could also opt for PU Faux or Hybrid leather if you don’t want the real thing. PU leather variants also cost considerably less.
As for the features, you have a solid steel frame, adjustable backrest, and lumbar support. The armrests can be both height-and-swivel adjusted. The cover is supposedly breathable, with the insides of the chair filled with “cold foam.”
You also get reclining support and an extra-wide seat base that should be wide and long enough even for taller users. Overall, the Noblechairs Hero looks rather attractive and comfy and is one of the most expensive regular gaming chairs you can get at the moment.
4. DXRacer Tank: Most expensive DXRacer gaming chair
The Tank is DXRacer’s premium gaming chair, and the thing certainly looks high-end. It’s sturdy, without a ton of details usually seen on cheaper models. The chair is of high-quality materials with a wide seat base.
That said, the base does include unobtrusive-looking side cushions that don’t look like they would get in the way of your thighs. Armrests are only height-adjustable, and the chair comes with a headrest and lumbar cushions without adjustable lumbar support.
5. Arozzi Vernazza: Most expensive gaming chair with best design
Arozzi is a European company, but this gaming accessory maker doesn’t hail from Italy, as its name suggests. No, we’re talking about a Swedish company. Their chairs look well-made and comfortable. Our pick is the Vernazza.
It features soft fabric instead of leather, making the chair more comfortable to use during summer. The chair features the usual slew of back and headrest cushions, steel frame, adjustable armrests (everything except swivel adjustment), and a 180-degree recline function. Overall, a very nice-looking chair with a wide seating area.
The Verona XL model is your usual gaming chair. Like a gaming monitor compared to an office one that a person can use for gaming, the Vernazza. The design includes PU leather instead of fabric, side cushions on the seating area, and back and headrest cushions.
This one is more expensive than the Vernazza, but it doesn’t look like it’s more comfortable. The PU leather will make the chair scorching hot during the summer months, and the seating area also looks cozier on the Vernazza.
6. Razer Iskur: Most expensive big-brand gaming chair
We can’t make the most expensive gaming chairs list without at least one chair coming from a big gaming brand. So here it is, the Razer Iskur and its sibling, the Iskur X. First of all, it looks like the Iskur is the better of the two.
It has 4D armrests instead of 2D (only height adjustment) on the X version, and it looks comfier than the X. We don’t like the design of the regular-sized model. The side cushions are too high and will be an issue for larger users. We recommend everyone who wants a wide seating area to get this chair in size large.
Other than the tall side cushions, we like the design of the Iskur. It has adjustable lumbar support that isn’t a height-adjustable cushion. Here you get proper lumbar support included that will give you a much better experience than cushion-equipped chairs. Next, while side-restrained in a standard size, the seat is extra-long no matter which size you pick. This is important since many chairs have their seating area a tad bit short. You won’t find that here.
The head cushion is memory foam. The chair supports tilt and recline functions, and the materials used include PU leather and lots of memory foam inside the chair. Overall, a surprisingly high-quality product from Razer. The Iskur looks like more than just a basic gaming chair with a brand slapped on it that sells for a ridiculously high price. Another plus is that the Iskur version of the chair is also available in fabric instead of PU leather. We always like to see this as an option.
7. Steelcase Gesture: Most expensive office chair for gaming
Last but not least, we have two models from two established office chair makers – the Gesture from Steelcase along with the Aeron from Herman Miller. We advise everyone looking for a high-end gaming chair to consider getting a quality office chair. High-quality office chairs are, first and foremost, comfortable. The designs have long (eight-hour plus) sitting sessions in mind. Don’t forget that the racing seat design used by most gaming chairs isn’t the most comfortable to begin with.
High-end office chairs are, on average, much more comfortable than gaming chairs. They also, in most cases, offer noticeably higher build quality. Do note that some models, like the Aeron, are chairs designed for work. They don’t allow much wiggle room while sitting and are made to improve your posture. This means they don’t offer as much freedom as gaming chairs, such as the vast recline ability or the ultra-wide seating area.
On the other hand, we like their body materials more – they’re suited for people who sweat easily, and the choice of materials should allow for much higher comfort in hot weather. Yes, leather and PU leather might look better on images, but fabric and mesh are much better when you take a seat.
Our first office lineup consists of the Steelcase Gesture. This is an ergonomic office chair with a wide seating area that should be an excellent gaming chair. You can tweak the seat depth, adjust the recline lock; the chair also offers full recline support, and the armrests are adjustable.
The Gesture also comes with excellent lumbar support that, while not being adjustable, should provide optimal support for both short and tall users. Overall, Herman Miller made the Gesture for gamers. Gamers who tend to swap between multiple positions while gaming and who also like to sit back and relax in recline mode.
8. Herman Miller Aeron: Most expensive work-and-gaming chair
Herman Miller is best known for the Aeron, probably the most famous office chair in the world. A chair made for offices and the eight-hour workday. In other words, this is another work chair made to keep you in a straight, ergonomic posture. This means that the seating area isn’t as wide as on gaming chairs. Also, its high arch is there to lock you into the seat without much wiggle room.
The chair is exceptionally comfortable and is perfect for users who tend to sweat easily, thanks to the mesh used for the seating and backrest area. Fabric mesh is an ideal airflow material. There’s also adjustable lumbar support and 4D armrests.
The Aeron also supports seat angle tweaking. It has three recline ranges made for different postures, and it also comes with an optional headrest. We also like the fact you can get the Aeron in three sizes, from small to large.
