Not all gaming spaces are made equal; what might be the best gaming chair for your space could be wildly different from what’s best for mine. Perhaps you need something that doesn’t take up much space but still provides comfort and immersion, so you might consider searching for the best gaming chair with speakers. The X Rocker 51491 Extreme III 2.0 Gaming Rocker Chair with Audio System by Ace Bayou is made to be comfortable, storable, immersive, and, best of all, affordable. This video gaming rocking floor chair is made for the young and young-at-heart: it won’t be for everyone, but many are sure to appreciate all this chair has to offer.

Why We Like It – X Rocker 51491 Extreme III 2.0 Gaming Rocker Chair with Audio System

Everyone knows that sitting on the floor is bad for your back, but not everyone has the space for a huge gaming chair. That’s where floor rockers like the X Rocker 51491 Extreme III 2.0 Gaming Rocker Chair with Audio System come in: it’s comfy, stylish, and easy to store away when you need that floor space back. Not to mention, this chair has an integrated sound system to get you that much closer to the game.

  • Compact and easy to store
  • More affordable gaming chair option
  • High-back ergonomic design
  • Best-suited for smaller individuals
  • Fabric tears somewhat easily
  • Mediocre sound quality


Sitting on the floor while playing video games or watching TV can be a delight until you get up and realize you’ve been without proper full-back support for far too long. A video gaming floor chair like the X Rocker Extreme III or the similar VON Racer Rocking video game chair is designed with this in mind. The ergonomic design of this rocker gaming chair cradles your body, providing key points of contact between the chair and your neck, back, and legs. All that being said, the X Rocker is on the smaller side: most reviewers find this chair works better for kids and teens rather than adults. But, you’ll find that the Giantex gaming chair is geared toward adults.


Comfort is the name of the game when it comes to gaming chairs, and the X Rocker Extreme III delivers. Its excellent ergonomic support and rocking design make it a stellar alternative to the ground when you want to get up close to the TV. This gaming rocker is on the small side, so smaller users are most likely to get the most enjoyment out of this chair: for something a little bit more suited to adult tastes, consider the X Rocker Pro Series Gaming Chair instead. Like the majority of X Rocker Chairs, the Extreme III is firm enough to support without being uncomfortably so. A different X Rocker chair model that is also good for hardcore gamers is in our X Rocker 51259 Pro H3 4.1 audio gaming chair review.


A gaming rocker will naturally not be adjustable to the same extent as its desk-height counterparts. If adjusting your video gaming chair is your goal, you’ll likely be happier with something like the Gtracing Gaming Chair. Typically, floor rockers are best suited to kids and teens but are also popular amongst those without much extra space. The X Rocker Extreme III is fantastic in this department because it is a sound-wired, foldable video gaming rocking chair. While being foldable is far from unique, the fact that this chair is so portable and easy to store while also providing a more immersive media experience sets this chair apart from a good chunk of its competition.

Faux leather is a popular choice for gaming chairs, so it’s rather surprising to see that the X Rocker Extreme III instead has a cloth exterior. This means the chair is less likely to generate excess heat and sweat, a welcome plus for anyone intending to sit in this chair for hours on end. The interior is still polyester, so the chair is likely to retain more heat than one made with more breathable materials, but a few reviewers complained about this chair’s heat. However, one reviewer notes that the fabric tends to creak with motion, and several others found that the fabric rips rather easily apart at the seams.


A true surround sound video gaming experience requires a far larger and pricier setup than what you can get from this gaming chair X Rocker has on offer. The side-facing speakers have good enough sound quality to satisfy a kid but don’t come in expecting this chair to replace your soundbar any time soon. That being said, for $90 with free shipping, this chair is a great buy, even if you don’t plan on utilizing the audio system. And, if you do end up liking the sound system and want to get everyone in on the action, you can easily set up multiple chairs together via the control panel on the side.

X Rocker 51491 Extreme III 2.0 Gaming Rocker Chair with Audio System Wrap Up

The X Rocker 51491 Extreme III 2.0 Gaming Rocker Chair with Audio System measures 16 inches W x 31 inches H, perfect for small gamers that want an elevated gaming experience from sitting straight on the floor. It’s foldable, so easy to store, and has a high-quality ergonomic design to keep you feeling comfy and supported. The sound quality from this audio system isn’t much to write home about, but kids will probably like it. That’s good, too, considering that kids are the most likely to enjoy sitting in this chair. Beleaguered parents are warned, however, that the fabric exterior isn’t as durable as the faux leather on other chairs, so don’t let kids play too rough here. Overall, this comfy, affordable gaming chair will make an excellent addition to any small gaming space.
