Mavix Gaming Chairs: A New Way to Play

Mavix is a new company that has spent the last few years developing a unique style of gaming chair. The goal was to create something that eclipses the traditional race car seat design. This resulted in the M series line of chairs known for an ergonomic design and breathable materials that allow you to focus on the game and nothing else.

The gaming chair manufacturer doesn’t hide the fact that these are premium chairs, using high-quality materials that bring a high price tag along with them. There are currently four models Mavix offers, outlined as follows:

Chair Series Default ModelPrice
M4$488.88
M5$619.99
M7$859.99
M9$1099.99

Mavix M Series

Mavix’s line of M series chairs offers gradual upgrades as you work through the lineup. Each model provides optional add-ons in the form of a footrest, gaming chair mat, and Elemax technology. Elemax introduces fans to cool your body, relax your muscles, and even throws in a therapeutic massage.

Let’s break down each M series chair and see what makes them stand out.

Mavix M4

Mavix M4
Weight: 45 pounds (20.4 kilograms)
Material: Mesh
Seat Width: 19.5 inches (49.5 centimeters)
Max Weight: 250 pounds (113 kilograms)
Recline: 90° to 127°
Adjustable Height: 3 inches (7.6 centimeters)
5 Wheel Plastic Base
1D Armrests
Dynamic Variable Lumbar Support and Adjustable Headrest
MSRP: $488.88

The Mavix M4 is a minimalist gaming chair design, weighing only 45 pounds. Its small stature blends well into any gaming space, allowing your rig to stand out.

A proprietary mesh material permeates the chair, allowing for breathability in any setting. This feature is missing from a majority of the other chairs on the market that can leave sweaty areas after hours of play. The M4 has a built-in dynamic lumbar support and an adjustable headrest to maximize comfort.

For all it does have, the M4 falls short with 1D armrests that offer limited mobility and a rather generic plastic wheel base that doesn’t look up to the challenge of supporting the 250-pound weight limit. The wheels are lockable, though, so you can do away with awkward rolling around when you don’t want to.

There’s no lever to activate the recline feature but rather a pin that you have to pull out before you can adjust the backrest. Once you’re at the angle you want, you still need to slide the pin back in place. It’s tedious, and you can only recline the chair to 127° anyway.

I’m at a loss for what makes the M4 worth its $488.88 price tag. Perhaps it doubles as an office or gaming chair, but a minimalist approach should have a minimalist price tag. You can pick up Secretlab’s Titan Evo 2022 or even a Razer model for not much more.

Mavix M5

Mavix M5
Weight: 48.1 pounds (21.8 kilograms)
Material: Mesh
Seat Width: 20.5 inches (52.1 centimeters)
Max Weight: 300 pounds (136 kilograms)
Recline: 90° to 135°
Adjustable Height: 4.5 inches (11.4 centimeters)
5 Wheel Plastic Base
2D Armrests
Dynamic Variable Lumbar Support and Adjustable Headrest
MSRP: $619.99

Mavix’s M5 model is actually a precursor to the M4 but offers some improvements over the base model.

Featuring the same mesh design, the M5 has a more pronounced lumbar support section encased in a faux leather material. The lumbar support is still adjustable along with the headrest pillow so most people can find a comfortable position.

The chair itself is a few pounds heavier but supports up to 300 pounds and has a 20.5-inch seat width that can be expanded further for $44.44 more. You can recline back a bit further than with the M4, but the mechanic is still the same.

You will have access to 2D armrests that move forward and backward in addition to up and down. It’s a minor upgrade that won’t work for everyone. For an extra $165, you can upgrade these to 360° armrests. For gamers on the outskirts of the height spectrum, you can adjust the chair’s height 4.5 inches.

Another hybrid gaming/office chair model, the M5 will set you back $619.99 without optional upgrades. This price point places it above some of the top gaming chairs that offer 4D armrests and metal wheel bases right out of the gate.

Mavix M7

Mavix M7
Weight: 50 pounds (22.7 kilograms)
Material: Mesh & M-Breeze
Seat Width: 21 inches (53.4 centimeters)
Max Weight: 300 pounds (136 kilograms)
Recline: 90° to 148°
Adjustable Height: 4.5 inches (11.4 centimeters)
5 Wheel Plastic Base
4D Armrests
Dynamic Variable Lumbar Support and Adjustable Headrest
MSRP: $859.99

The M7 finally introduces a 4D armrest that you can adjust in most directions. Being able to position your arms in the right place for gaming goes a long way in the comfort category. It’s also possible to recline this model back to 148° when you need to rest or watch a show.

The seat width continues to widen from other models, with the M7 up to 21 inches from side to side. Mavix uses what they call an M-Breeze leather-like material to cover the headrest and lumbar support area. The fabric is known for a soft feel that compliments the mesh on the rest of the chair.

With this model, you’ll receive M-wheels, which look like the type you’d see on in-line roller skates. They do glide much better than the base wheels over carpeted and otherwise rough terrain.

These improvements come at a cost, as the M7 retails for $859.99. Comfort is key with gaming chairs, and this model does deliver. I’m still not convinced that this high cost is justified, considering features like Elemax and 360° armrests cost more still.

Mavix M9

Mavix M9
Weight: 58 pounds (26.3 kilograms)
Material: Cool Gel Memory Foam Seat & M-Breeze Fabric
Seat Width: 22 inches (55.9 centimeters)
Max Weight: 300 pounds (136 kilograms)
Recline: 90° to 150°
Adjustable Height: 4.5 inches (11.4 centimeters)
5 Wheel Plastic Base
4D Armrests
Dynamic Variable Lumbar Support and Adjustable Headrest
MSRP: $1099.99

Mavix’s M9 surpasses the $1,000 mark before optional extras, enough to cause anyone some sticker shock.

The most notable difference from the M7 is the material, switching from mesh to a unique M-Breeze ultra-comfortable faux leather. It’s designed to mold to your body while offering the support you need to game for hours on end.

You’ll also have access to a 22-inch seat and a recline that leans back to 150°, but all other features like up with the M7. This includes the skater wheels, 4.5-inch adjustable height, and 4D armrests.

Final Thoughts

Mavix certainly offers a comfortable bunch of chairs, and users with back issues profess that these are some of the only chairs to provide a respite from pain. Most come with a minimalist design that helps them fit in an office setting or gaming space, depending on where you need the chair to go.

All that being said, I really struggle to justify the price points these chairs are listed for. I’d need to get at least the M7 to have all the features I like on my chairs, but I’m not sure my money is best spent here. The consensus though is that the comfort is well worth it.
