INTRODUCTION

Who knew that gaming chairs with speakers and vibration would be a thing today. The entry point is easy at about $100 for basic audio, but that may not include vibration motors. For all the bells and whistles most people will pay up to around $400. Some even have LED lights built-in, and offer massage functions too!

WHY HAVE SOUND AND VIBRATION?

In a standard gaming chair, emphasis is given to support for the upper back and shoulders by providing a high backrest. Other features such as extending armrests, enhanced lumbar support, and integrated controls for audio output are rather straightforward. Moreover, they can also be customized according to user requirements.

However, gaming chairs with speakers and vibration kills two birds with one stone. Firstly, it provides comfort to the user for spending long hours in gameplay. Secondly, it enhances the gamer’s experience through the presence of speakers, sub-woofers, and a set of audio synced vibration motors present inside it. This allows you to ‘feel the game’ via immersion.

SOUND SYSTEM

Generally, the architecture of gaming chairs with speakers and vibration motors is fixed. Two or more speakers are housed on either side of the headrests, and a sub-woofer is placed on the back of the chair, providing a thumping effect while gaming. Moreover, in some chairs, audio force modulation is integrated to further augment the gaming experience.

VIBRATION MOTOR

Gaming chair vibration motors are linked with the speakers to produce vibrations. The vibrations are similar to a play-station controller. The motors are mostly present in either back support of the seat. Certain audio signals produced by bomb explosions, vehicle crashes, bullets fired from a gun, and many different kinds of impact, are converted into vibration signals. These vibration signals are then transferred to the motors present in the chair. After receiving these signals, the motors vibrate the chair, providing a feeling to the gamer of actually being present inside the game.

If the vibration motor is present in the chair’s seat, some have observed that in people suffering from kidney pain, backache, and hip-joint problems, the vibration effect can aggravate their condition. Thus, a buyer should consider this if they have similar pre-existing conditions.
