Which one should I buy?
In order to help you choose the right chair, we’ve decided to go over the key points and differences between each of the brands. The first important decision you need to make is how much money you are willing to spend on a chair. Do bear in mind that you will be sitting on these chairs for extended periods of time and skimping on the cash now could cause trouble later. Speaking about pricing DXRacer gaming chairs go from $250 and up, while Maxnomic chairs start a bit higher at $329 and go as high as $589.As you can see, the differences in pricing are mostly negligible, unless you’re looking for the cheapest possible solution. Should that be the case, DXRacer is the obvious choice.
Both brands offer customers a wide selection of gaming chairs to choose from. However, DXRacer has the lead in this regard, seeing as they not only offer a greater number of models but also allow customers to pick between many more color schemes for said models. DXRacer also offers more Special Edition models than Maxnomic does.
For those of you who love to customize your belongings, Maxnomic allows customers to get their name embroidered on the chair’s headrest. As for accessories, DXRacer has the upper hand once again. Whereas Maxnomic accessories come down merely to additional cushioning and replacement parts, DXRacer offers a footrest as well as several mouse pads, one of which can be mounted on the armrest of certain chairs. In terms of comfort, both brands offer many models with ergonomic design, comfortable cushioning and lumbar support. And as far as warrant goes DXRacer offers two years warranty with all their models.
Most of you might still be wondering about which gaming chair brand is the better one? Well honestly, it’s hard to say. Both brands have roughly the same number of total chair models, similar pricing, and all their products are of the highest quality possible. However, DXRacer has a slightly better advantage in two key categories: their prices start lower, and their special edition chairs are more numerous. Overall people who are on a tighter budget and those who have a taste for any of the products/companies/events marketed by special edition DXRacer gaming chairs will definitely find DXRacer to be the more appealing of the two. But in the end, the chair that best suits your needs is the actual winner.
