SONGMICS Chair For Gaming Review (Early 2018)

We have to admit that when we first saw the SONGMICS Gaming Chair with the Headrest and Lumbar Support Black URCG001, we weren’t really that impressed with the overall design of the chair. However, shipping is fast and it looks really comfortable, so we had to set aside our preference for design and give the SONGMICS Chair a shot. 

We really loved the wide design and the grooves on the outside of the seat that make your seating position more comfortable. We also loved the pricing as this chair doesn’t go too high or too low.


This will be a personal preference between every customer but something we’re not too impressed with is the overall design of this chair. We’re not talking about the grooves or the actual chair but the stitching and the artwork of the chair. Everything else is great. To be frank, the stitching and red lines on the chair look like something your grandmother would knit you for Christmas. The material used in the chair is great and the overall look is great, if you could just remove the stitching and seam artwork they’ve slapped onto the chair. Thankfully there’s a black version of the chair that doesn’t have that.


Aside from the design, this chair is made with great durability standards in mind and it’s built to last, so you won’t have to worry about any kind of break-down or not being able to support long periods of use. The base of the wheels is wide and it’s spread out evenly, so you can support more weight and when you’re moving around, there’s not too much weight being unevenly distributed among the wheels. Moving around on the ground feels smooth and seamless, so you won’t leave any damaging marks behind, even on wood flooring.


The most important area of any gaming chair: comfort. The comfort of this chair felt really good and it may not be the most comfortable gaming chair we’ve ever reviewed but SONGMICS usually does a really good job of providing adequate comfort through their chairs. The detail provided in this chair aimed at your comfort is next level and we really found the grooves in the base of the chair to be quite useful. It made our seated experience more relaxing and we’re sure it’ll make yours more relaxing as well.

Features of the Gaming chair

Wide Cushioning – One of the main things we love about SONGMICS Chair is the extra wide cushion that’s provided with the base of the chair. Something you don’t see a lot of is extra wide cushion and it’s something we’re glad to see on this chair. What does that mean? The wide base of the chair allows for you to sit in the chair more evenly and allows for your weight to be more distributed among the base of the chair.

Backrest Tilt – For ease of convenience, this chair allows you to tilt the chair back to 150 degrees without any kind of squeaking or noise and it feels very comfortable. The backrest isn’t something that a lot of people look into before they acquire one of these gaming chairs and it’s something they should because you’re not going to be sitting upright 100% of the time when you’re gaming or relaxing.

Adjustability – The armrests of this chair are highly adjustable and can tilt or even be removed if you so desire. Some of us don’t like armrests and we completely understand that, so if you want to remove them, you can do so with ease and without any hassle. Some people just want to lower them or move them up a bit which you can also easily do with the touch of a button and again, with relative ease.

Durability – One thing we noticed in SONGMICS Chair is that it comes with screws that have anti-loosening technology so no matter how often you use the chair or what you do to the chair, the screws once they are in there, they’re in there for good and they won’t come loose under any circumstances. This is of course, unless you manually unscrew them but this chair was made for maximum durability.
