If you spend a significant portion of your day at a desk, a comfortable, ergonomic chair is one of the most important purchases you should make. Since they tend to focus heavily on ergonomics, gaming chairs are ideal for both work and play. A high-quality gaming chair is an investment that your body will wind up thanking you for, and if you have the cash to spend, the Mavix M9 is about as premium as it gets unless your name is Herman Miller. Mavix jumped into the gaming chair space late last year, and the company currently has three models, each with a similar design. At $1,000, the M9 is Mavix’s most expensive. While that’s a steep price for a chair, the M9 absolutely delivers; it is, bar none, the most comfortable chair my bottom has ever graced.
While many popular gaming chairs look like racing seats, the M9 is understated. Designed to look more like a conventional ergonomic office chair, the M9 has an elegance to it that will likely appeal to those who want something that meshes with their space. It’s not flashy or boisterous, but it still has a quiet style about it.
The M9 has a wide seat cushion with a subtle curvature. The two-piece backrest gets wider as it goes up and is made of soft, multilayered nylon. The ergonomic lumbar support has a pronounced bend, and the upper portion of the backrest is covered with what Mavix calls “M-Breeze Fabric” to match the seat cushion. It has a leathery feel to it but is much softer than most faux leather chairs. The M9 is extremely clean, with few logos strewn about its exterior. The M9 comes with soft rollerblade-style wheels, which gives you a cleaner roll and eliminates scratches on hardwood floors that can be caused by normal casters.
