Premium, pricey and covered in high quality PU leather are just a few ways we can describe the Secretlab Omega gaming chair. The company is the brainchild of two professional gamers who sat together in 2014 and decided there’s a lot more that could be done to put together a comfortable chair. They even decided to categorize their releases based on the height and weight of a specific customer. The Omega range is recommended to customers who aren’t taller than 5’11, and don’t weigh more than 240 pounds. If you meet these two requirements, then the Secretlab Omega may be the best gaming chair for you.

Why We Like It – Secretlab Omega Review

Secretlab keeps introducing great chairs to us almost every other year, and its hotly anticipated 2020 release is no different. It comes with adjustable armrests, improved PU leather quality, a weight limit of 240 pounds and looks to die for. Go ahead and check it out!

  • Improved, spill-resistant PU leather
  • Cooling gel on pillows
  • Great design
  • Limited reclining ability


If you’re familiar with Secretlab’s Omega range from 2018, you should be able to notice a couple of upgrades with its 2020 series. There’s the use of an upgraded form of PU Leather that Secretlab argues is more durable and softer than that of its predecessor, as well as an armrest redesign that allows them to be a lot more adjustable. Bear in mind, it’s armrest adjustability is 4-directional, and not 3-directional as is the case with the DXRacer Formula Series (Newedge Edition). Other than that, everything’s pretty much the same. The new Omega chair also comes with a memory foam lumbar pillow for lumbar support, as well as a headrest pillow that has an adjustable strap for better positioning.


The team at Secretlab definitely got things right with the Omega chair’s design, since not as many gaming chairs have such a nice blend of colors. The chair comes with gold and white logos on both the front and back, with red stitching that makes for a very elegant overall look. It’s also not as puffy as the Vertagear Racing Series SL4000, but we’re not complaining. Assembly is not that different from how you’d put together an office chair. It’s pretty straight forward, and can be done by one person in less than 30 minutes. The chair may earn some criticism for not being able to recline all the way to the back, but apart from that, we didn’t find anything else that should discourage you from buying it.


The value you get from a chair like the Omega is in the fact that you won’t have to buy another one for a very long time. Anyone who has had experience with cheap office chairs that develop problems after just a few months of use knows how frustrating this can be. You’ll definitely be better off putting together the money and making the purchase. As you’ve probably seen in this Omega gaming chair review, what you get is a chair that has high build quality just like the X Rocker 51396 Pro Series, and improvements done based on research and lab tests. The chair Secretlab is what you want to be sitting on especially if you tend to spend a lot of time on your computer.

Secretlab Omega Review Wrap Up

Getting a gaming chair shouldn’t be as hard as most people make it out to be. As long as you have a chair that ticks all the boxes for comfort, adjustability and durability, you shouldn’t have a lot to worry about. The Secretlab Omega chair sets the bar pretty high for what a comfortable gaming chair should be, and is definitely worth checking out.
