The Mavix M7 offers the perfect blend of comfort and adjustability but at top-tier pricing. Its finicky backrest height adjustment process is disappointing, though.

Product Snapshot

Overview

Announced in 2020, the Mavix M7 is a premium gaming chair designed to offer high levels of comfort and adjustability. Like nearly all top-tier office chairs, the M7 has a mesh backseat for good breathability, and its lumbar support mechanism makes it stand out compared to the best gaming chairs on the market, as it dynamically adjusts to your sitting posture.

It can recline up to 127°, so owners can easily switch to a comfortable resting position, and since its headrest is independently adjustable, tall users can configure it for optimal neck support. If you don’t mind missing a headrest in exchange for a budget price, check out our Modway Articulate Ergonomic review.

Consensus

our Verdict

The easy-to-assemble Mavix M7 offers premium ergonomics at a premium price. One of its most notable features is its dynamic lumbar support, which adjusts in response to body posture when seated. Otherwise, owners will have to find the perfect seat height, seat depth, backrest height, and headrest positioning. They’ll also be able to optimize the four directional armrests to their convenience.

Its formidable metal and plastic construction is proven by its 275-pound weight capacity despite only weighing 50 pounds, and with the option to integrate a heat and massage function, owners can further improve the chair’s comfort. While its high price range may place it out of reach for some, the M7 remains a fitting response to those wondering what gaming chairs do streamers use.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Excellent ergonomics and adjustability
    • Perfect for gamers who prioritize comfort and adjustability, the M7 allows users to fine-tune its seat height (18.5-23”), headrest, recline angle (max 127°), and armrests.

    • Its breathability also adds to its comfort when sitting for long hours, courtesy of its mesh seat and backrest.

  • Dynamic Lumbar Support system
    • The M7’s lumbar support mechanism adjusts in response to body posture. This adds to its overall convenience, as it is one element of the chair that doesn’t need adjusting.

  • Exceptional build quality
    • With a 275-pound weight capacity, the M7’s metal and plastic construction is quite formidable. This also ensures its durability over long-term use.

  • Good stability
    • The M7 has a five-point base for good stability.

Reason to Avoid

  • Inconvenient backrest height adjustment
    • Some might find lifting the backrest and trying to lock it into one of four positions inconvenient, as it is not a very quick process.

The Mavix M7 ships with a headrest by default. This isn’t the case with the AirCentric 2, as the headrest is offered as an add-on. Another difference is that while the M7 only allows for 4 inches of seat height adjustment, the AirCentric 2’s seat height can be adjusted up to 5 inches. If you’d like to know what else the AirCentric 2 has to offer, make sure to read through our AirCentric 2 review.

The M7 has a mesh backset, offering more breathability. The Hero Gaming Chair has a PU leather seatrest that is not as breathable. The Mavix M7 also has an independently adjustable headrest, while the Hero Gaming Chair has an integrated headrest that isn’t adjustable. However, while the latter can recline up to 135°, the M7’s recline maxes out at 127°. The M7 has Dynamic Variable Lumbar support, which intuitively adjusts to the body, whereas the Hero Gaming Chair has a knob for adjusting back support. Here’s our Noblechairs Hero Gaming Chair review for more.

While the Mavix M7 has mesh seats, the cushion on the Mavix M9 is filled with cool-gel memory foam. At 22 inches, the M9’s seat cushion is also wider, so the M9 feels more comfortable to sit on compared to the 21-inch seat on the M7. Many consider the M7 a more affordable alternative to the best Herman Miller chairs due to the comfort and levels of adjustability offered.
