Product Snapshot

Overview

The Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair is a high-end pick that was first announced in 2020. The well-designed chair has a weight limit of 300 pounds, which is around the same limit as most top-ranking office chairs.

The chair also has a rubbery material on its backrest that is perforated for good breathability, and unlike a lot of the best gaming chairs on the market, it arrives fully assembled. Because of how its backrest is designed, it adjusts automatically to support the spine best when seated, and its armrests have a self-skinning thermoplastic urethane foam for a good feel.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair is designed for long gaming sessions by users who appreciate a wide range of adjustments. Buyers will be able to configure the arm height and width, back fit, seat depth, seat height, and tilt tension. The armrests have a 3.2” range of height adjustment, the seat height has a 4.5” range, and its seat depth pans over a 3” area. The chair also supports users who weigh up to 300 pounds and arrives fully assembled.

While it doesn’t have fully adjustable lumbar support, there is a knob on its back right that adjusts to the curve of the user, but unfortunately, there’s no headrest, and the armrests can’t be rotated.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Great Ergonomics and Adjustability
    • Gamers can completely fine-tune the Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair down to the most intricated adjustments.

    • Its seat height is adjustable by 4.5”, seat depth by 3”, and armrests by 3.2” for its height. Its seat is also wide, offering good office chair leg circulation when seated for long hours.

  • Dynamic lumbar support
    • The chair has dynamic lumbar support, as it features a knob on its backrest that responds to the posture of the individual to offer lower back support.

  • Exceptional build quality
    • Designed with an aluminum frame, the Miller X Logitech chair is made from quality materials, with different layers of foam, all serving different purposes.

    • It can also support individuals of up to 300 pounds and has smooth rolling casters at the end of its five-pointed base.

Reason to Avoid

  • No headrest
    • The chair doesn’t ship with a towering headrest.

The Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair features an extra copper-infused foam layer, while the Classic Embody has a more heavy-duty foam layer. Also different is that the Miller X Logitech chair has an extra layer of cooling foam ideal for marathon gaming sessions, which the Classic Embody does not.

If you’re comparing these two to find out what the best Herman Miller chair is or what gaming chairs streamers use, you should probably learn more about the Classic Embody in our Herman Miller Embody review.

The Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair has a 300-pound weight capacity, which is inferior to the EwinRacing Flash XL Series, which can sustain individuals who weigh up to 550 pounds. The Miller X Logitech Chair also misses out on a recline lock, so its recline will shift back upright when a user shifts their weight forward. This differs from the EwinRacing Chair, which can be locked at a 155° recline. Here’s our EwinRacing Flash XL Series review for more info.

The Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair is designed as a regular mesh chair, which is different from the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition, which has a racing seat design. Also worth noting is that the Miller X Logitech Chair has no towering headset, making it different from the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition, which has an integrated headrest. If you’re interested, we’ve covered the Andaseat in our Andaseat Fnatic Edition review.
