Anda Seat is a well-known brand in the industry that is manufacturing high-quality gaming chairs and accessories. If you are into gaming chairs and tech in general, you have probably heard of this brand.
The Anda Seat gaming chairs are recognized by their specific design, a great mix of colors, and unique features. Known as a brand that is trying to push itself in the consumer class category, Anda Seat is always innovating with features like multifunction tilt-lock mechanisms, 4D armrests, great weight capacity and more.
Also, this brand is known for its focus on gaming chairs for big and tall people, which definitely puts them in the list among the best heavyweight gaming chairs with ergonomic features and a luxurious appeal. People buying the Anda Seat chairs should know that they will get more than a seat, especially in terms of longevity and overall quality.
From Car Seats To Gaming Chairs: A Brief History
What started as a simple mission to build a high-quality and top-performing race car chair led Anda Seat to become one of the top gaming chair manufacturers out there. The roots of this company date back to 2007, when the brand started producing race car seats for car enthusiasts, which is when they realized that the majority of the chair’s features match the needs of gamers nowadays.
In 2016, Anda Seat fully transitioned to gaming chairs, which is when some of the brand’s iconic models first saw the light of day. I am talking about the legendary Anda Seat Kaiser, which is one of the bestsellers and a chair that looks like it was taken out from a luxurious sports car.
The Kaiser gaming chair by Anda Seat is also one of the best big and tall gaming chairs out there. We will be reviewing it briefly in the part below, as well as the Dark Knight edition, the Fnatic edition and more.
What Technology And Materials Does Anda Seat Use?
Whether you are an avid gamer or just an office person who wants a new chair to support you while working, the Anda Seat chairs can definitely fit both purposes. The mission of the brand is to create a comfortable chair for everyone, and that everyone doesn’t only mean gamers.
Each one of the Anda Seat gaming chairs is designed from industrial grade raw materials, and later on sent for ANSI/BIFMA testing and the needed SGS certification. From a first glance, I noticed a very sturdy base with solid casters, a nice frame and seat materials that are of high density. Overall, the technology that is used in terms of material is above the standard, which puts this brand as a direct competitor to higher-end brands including DXRacer, noblechairs, SecretLab, and others.
Besides the durability and sturdiness of the chair, there are many cool features that I find when reviewing a couple of models. What personally impressed me was the following:
- The padding, which is actually double layered. There is a 2.5” blend of cold cured high-density foam, over which goes another 1.5” of thick memory foam. This is how the Anda Seat gaming chairs are so comfortable to sit on, even for a full day.
- 3D/4D adjustable armrests, which I found in almost all models besides a few. These armrests are very adaptable, and their surface is covered by PU leather. As such, they support the forearm naturally in a position that relieves pressure from the wrist and takes away any pain from the muscles.
- Reclining features, which are another good point worth mentioning. Some chairs can actually be reclined up to 160 degrees, which is above the standard of 120 degrees that I am used to seeing.
- Sturdy steel frame, which is probably one of the most important things to consider when buying a gaming chair. The frame here is solid and made of 22mm steel. In addition to it, there is the heavy-duty aluminum base, and the rolling casters which measure 60mm on smaller chairs, and 65mm on heavyweight ones.
- Premium PVC leather, which is exceptional from every angle. Believe it or not, Anda Seat was designing car seats for brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz before, which gave them a lot of positive experiences to learn from. As the brand claims on its website, the same leather materials are used in their gaming seating. I tested the PVC leather by touching, sitting on it and stretching it a bit, and it showed that it is durable, flexible and tear-proof. I obviously did not try to tear it apart, but it is evident that this material is long-lasting and won’t lose its shape.
- Class 4 gas-powered lift, which supports gamers of up to 550 pounds (250 kg) and makes Anda Seat one of the very few brands that extend the weight capacity to this limit.
- Lifetime warranty, which is applicable on the steel frame, as well as the extended six-year warranty and the standard two years of warranty on all parts. If you want to get your warranty extended, you’ll need to take a photo of your new chair, post it on social media with the hashtag #AndaSeat and make sure the post is public. Then, submit the URL of your post to AndaSeat (more information available on this link).

- Official sponsorship of the EGLX, Lan ETS and CNEwith AMD eSports events

What I noticed when I sat down on some of the Anda Seat chairs for gamers is that the overall build is impressive. As some of you know, I am not a short and slim guy, which is why it made sense for me to test the Kaiser gaming chair.

Anda Seat Gaming Chair Reviews: My Top Four Picks
Last in this Anda Seat review is the part where I pick the best chairs by the manufacturer and review them for you. I personally chose five models that impressed me, offer a great value for money, and have solid features that would apply and cater to most individuals.
These include the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition, the Kaiser 2 Series, T-Pro 2 Series, and the most affordable, Jungle Series. I will start with the most affordable one and go from there.
Anda Seat Jungle Series Gaming Chair
Pros: Great price, high density lumbar pillows, adjustable reclining
Cons: 2D armrests, lower-quality materials
For me, this is one of the Anda Seat gaming chairs that has a great price and cool features. One of them is the reclining on five different levels, which gives this model a lot more purpose. Obviously, a price tag like this justifies the (lower end) 2D armrests and some of the lower quality materials used in the chair. However, I must say that the Jungle Series is a chair that gets most of the job done, whether you are a gamer or someone who is looking for a decent office chair.
Anda Seat Fnatic Edition Gaming Chair
Pros: Very comfortable to sit on, large frame, wide seat base, PVC leather gives it a premium feel
Cons: Not the best fit for smaller gamers, no memory foam pillows
This cool looking gaming chair is very sturdy. It also offers 160 degrees reclining in different positions, making it perfect for reading, relaxing or gaming in a whole different position. The logo of the Fnatic is stitched into the side of the headrest, which makes the chair look even more premium along with its impressive double-layered PVC leather. However, while big and tall people will find the height and weight capacity (210cm and 200kg) impressive, smaller gamers may struggle with the chair and its lack of memory foam pillows for support.
Anda Seat T-Pro 2 Series Premium Gaming Chair
Pros: Hard wearing foam, comfortable PVC leather, neck & lumbar pillows, adjustable on five levels
This model is a very durable one, made from hard-wearing foam and PVC leather. In addition to the stability, there is an adjustable back offering with five different modes, an XL size neck, and a lumbar memory foam pillow. The integrated steel framework, class 4 gas lift, and high strength aluminum base are one of the top features of this chair. However, it may not be the best fit for smaller and petite gamers.
Anda Seat Kaiser 2 Series Premium Gaming Chair
Pros: Huge weight capacity, improved base and tilt mechanism, big & comfortable lumbar support pillows
The Kaiser 2 Series is a new upgrade from the legendary Kaiser Series model by Anda Seat which enjoys big popularity on the market. The wine-red color is a big favorite among gamers, and the 441-pound weight capacity provides a lot of comfort for gamers. There are extra-large neck and lumbar pillows and a reclining feature up to 160 degrees.
Obviously, there are some great chairs that I haven’t listed here and are worth reviewing, but I will leave that for another occasion. I am specifically talking about chairs like the Throne Series, and all of the Marvel Collaboration Series which offer exceptional designs and are very popular among superhero fans.
To sum things up, it is easy to see how attentive to detail Anda Seat is as a brand. Its lines of gaming chairs cater to our needs, and there are so many great materials that this brand continuously uses to make sure that its chairs are exceptional from every angle.
So, if you are looking for a new gaming or office chair, Anda Chair should definitely be among your top picks. Despite the fact that they are only here for a couple of years as a gaming chair manufacturer, their collaboration with BMW, Mercedes-Benz and many features in popular news media make everyone certain that the brand is committed to building long lasting products.
