Product Snapshot

Overview

The Noblechairs Hero TX is the brand’s premium gaming chair, released in 2022. Like some of the best office chairs, it has sturdy back support and a swiveling base. It provides up to 125º of backrest recline. Upholstery options include an understated gray fabric, faux leather, and, for an additional cost, real leather.

As is typical for the best gaming chairs, the padding is somewhat firm. There’s plenty of upper body support, with a 54-inch overall height, and the listed weight capacity is 330 pounds. Seat height adjusts from 18.9 to 22.4 inches. The 5-wheeled swivel base includes an aluminum center column.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Hero TX excels with an ergonomic design and convenient seat-tilt and armrest adjustments. The embedded adjustable lumbar support system adds comfort for long gaming or work sessions. Build quality is good, with an aluminum center pillar and a sturdy chassis, allowing a 330-lb (150 kg) weight limit. A flexible rocking mechanism helps make up for the limited 125º backrest angle.

The 5-wheeled base and removable armrests add maneuverability. The material quality is good, as expected, given this gaming chair’s premium price, but some may wish for more color or stitching options. The firm cushioning may not resonate with all users. Due to its limited 3.5 inches of seat height adjustment, smaller users may have trouble finding the ideal seating position with this otherwise impressive chair.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good ergonomics/adjustability
    • The Hero TX has a 54” backrest height and sturdy shoulder support for gaming

    • 11º of adjustable seat tilt, 4-way armrest adjustments. The 3.5-inch seat height adjustment is good but less than average.

  • Effective lumbar support
    • Embedded lumbar support system

    • Convenient tension knob adjusts the lumbar support arch

  • Good materials and build quality
    • A breathable, high-quality fabric option adds comfort for longer sessions

    • Sturdy aluminum base

Reason to Avoid

  • Limited recline angle
    • The maximum backrest angle of 125º is less than the average

  • Firm cushion
    • Some users may find the chair too stiff
