I was fortunate enough to have Anda Seat send me their brand new Kaiser 3 premium gaming chair, and I couldn’t wait to get it unboxed. Although the outside of the box was plain cardboard, it was neat to see the “Your unboxing experience starts here”. Having reviewed many chairs, it wasn’t lost on me that this is the same text seen on Secretlab’s Titan Evo. Coincidence? I think not.

After getting the box open, I was very impressed with how well laid out everything inside was. There wasn’t a loose component to be seen, as everything had a layer of foam, bubble wrap, or was at least encased in plastic. The wheels, normally loose in the box, were carefully packaged along with the instructions, tools, and level mechanisms. Even the magnetic armrests had special containers to hold them in.

The Kaiser 3’s instruction booklet is massive at first glance but actually contains over a dozen different languages. That being said, the manual is much better than a flimsy single sheet with pictures that I often see.

When building these chairs, I try to follow the instructions as someone buying a chair for the first time might. Everything was intuitive to follow, and I had the wheels on in no time. The chair lost a few points when I saw bolts pre-screwed onto the backrest. This meant I had to take them off before aligning the seat and then attach them back in place. There’s no reason these bolts can’t be in the package with the others to save me some time.

One thing I really appreciated was a metal guide when putting the backrest and seat together. Normally I have to hold one or the other with one hand while fumbling for screws, but this guide allowed me to use both hands for the assembly process.

The magnetic armrests simply snap into place, and the same holds true for the plastic covers on either side of the seat. I wasn’t confident the plastic covers would stay in place for very long, but Anda Seat proved me wrong on this one. Even the pillow attaches magnetically to the headrest, making installation effortless and allowing me to freely move it around at the same time. That’s a win-win for me.

All in all, the assembly process was one of the smoothest I’ve experienced. I tip my hat to Anda Seat for the work they did to achieve such a goal.

4D Armrests

The Anda Seat Kaiser 3’s armrests move every which way and then some. I can raise and lower each one individually through a series of heights, and it was easy for me to find a setting I liked with my gaming desk. They also rotate inward and outward, forward and backward, and side to side. I have a smaller build, so I prefer the armrests close to me, fully forward, and turned inward for maximum support.

Even though I don’t switch through these different settings often, it’s not uncommon to find my son playing with my chair when I’m not looking. It’s never hard for me to find my ideal location, and switching between them feels good. I’m not worried about him or myself breaking anything by moving things around so much.

I’m a taller guy, so I always look for seats that raise up enough for me to sit comfortably for long periods of time. The Kaiser 3 does deliver, but I find myself on the very highest setting available. Knowing that there are many others taller than me does leave me wondering, but Anda Seat rates this exact chair for users up to 6’ 8”.

If you’re shorter than 6 feet, the seat does lower down just shy of three inches. This range is less than many of the other chairs I’ve reviewed, so the Kaiser 3 seems to cater to a more specific profile.


Anyone who knows me will tell you that I love my rocker feature. I use it all the time when contemplating what to write in these reviews or how to plan out my strategy for world domination. The Anda Seat Kaiser 3 really comes through here, with a loose enough rocking mechanism for me to fully embrace my contemplative side. Some chairs are way too rigid for me, but that’s definitely not the case here.


With a range from perfectly vertical to just 15° from horizontal, the Kaiser 3 makes the switch from gaming to movie watching to napping a piece of cake. With the lean from the rocker, you can even take the chair to a perfectly horizontal position if you so choose. If you come up for air too fast, the magnetic pillow will come loose and smack you in the back of the head. 

Headrest Pillow

The headrest pillow is a joy to behold. With so many pillows that just don’t cut it out there, it’s so nice to have a magnetic cushion that I can freely move up and down as needed. I tend to slouch after a long, hard day of gaming, and the pillow naturally slides down with me. Even better, it’s made of a memory foam material that feels like you’re snuggling with a cloud.

Lumbar Support

In place of a lumbar support pillow, the Kaiser 3 features a built-in support bracket to nestle into the sweet spot of your lower back. Using knobs on either side of the chair, you can change the firmness of the bracket or move it up and down. I’d prefer this style of support over a pillow any day, and Anda Seat comes through here in a big way.

Build Quality

There’s a lot to like about the Anda Seat Kaiser 3. The way it came packaged told me the company cares about the quality of its products, and I got the same feeling after checking out each component individually.

Everything looks and feels really sturdy from top to bottom, and it feels the same when I sit down. I’m not worried the chair will crack, bend, or break even when I throw my worst at it. My son is even rougher on these than I am, and I have no concerns that he’s going to break the Kaiser 3.

I didn’t think I would like the use of magnets for attaching components, but I’ll admit it’s grown on me. Both the armrests and plastic covers on either side of the chair are made well and fit really nicely in place. I’ve tried to shake them loose to no effect, and I am impressed with how solid the pieces feel.

The wheel base on the Kaiser 3 is sturdy five-wheel aluminum, which is definitely upper tier and what I would expect to see on a chair at this price point. It can support up to 395 pounds, and the wheels are bigger than on some comparable models I’ve seen. I don’t have much issue moving the chair around my carpeted office thanks to that size.

I’m a huge fan of the magnetic headrest pillow. It is well made with a memory foam design that really takes things to the next level. With the magnet, I can move the pillow around as I need to and tuck it right into the crook of my neck.

For the Kaiser 3, the PVC material is a miss for me. Even though they call it premium, it feels coarse and not as smooth as I would like. I’ve only had the chair a short time, but I’m curious to see how long the PVC will last before starting to crack.

There aren’t any loose threads or anything that appears out of place with the Kaiser 3 fully assembled. The stitching looks really nice, and the orange thread accentuates the overall design nicely. All of Anda Seat’s logos really pop and are well done. It would annoy me if these were poorly made, but luckily that’s not the case.

Comfort and Ergonomics

As I sit here in my Anda Seat Kaiser 3, I have no qualms telling you or anyone else that this is a very comfortable chair. My body feels supported throughout, and I’ve already found myself sitting for hours on end without realizing so much time had passed. Best of all, I don’t feel sore anywhere once I do get up to see what’s changed in the outside world.

I rely heavily on the lower back support these chairs are supposed to have, and the Kaiser 3 does not disappoint. Being able to adjust the lumbar support bar up and down while playing with the intensity is an absolute game-changer. No matter how I position myself, I have the support that I need.

The same is true of the headrest pillow. Being magnetic, I can move it around somewhat on the headrest to maximize comfort whether I’m slouching or not. The internal padding is the best of any headrest pillow I’ve ever used.

The cushioning on the back of the chair feels great as well. It’s firm enough that it supports my weight well but feels great to sit in for extended periods of time. I wish I could say the same about the seat itself. The padding isn’t nearly as firm, and I find myself sinking down into the seat more than I would like. To make matters worse, the problem seems to be worst at the front of the chair, so I feel like I am always sitting at an angle.

Each armrest is made of a rubber material that provides plenty of support for your arms. Being able to adjust each armrest in four directions, it’s very easy to get the comfort you need here.


There are many things to like about Anda Seat’s Kaiser 3, from the firm foundation to adjustable armrests and lumbar bar. The chair looks really nice up close and at a distance, and I enjoy showing it off on various conference calls and gaming sessions. Every component feels high quality and so far has lived up to this expectation. 

The $529 price point for the Kaiser 3 doesn’t feel far off, considering the quality of its design and most of the materials used in construction. I wish they would have done better than the PVC faux leather, but the aluminum wheel base and memory foam pillow are a nice touch.

I’m able to put it out of mind when gaming, but the padding inside the seat is a little too soft to support even me at 160 pounds. It would be great to see extra support here so I don’t feel like I am always falling toward my computer. 

It’s clear that the Kaiser 3 is Anda Seat’s answer to the Secretlab Titan Evo 2022. I happen to have both side by side in the same room, and the similarities are uncanny. The price points are very close, but I would lean toward the Titan if I had to pick between the two. There’s just nothing the Kaiser 3 does that makes it stand out more than the Titan does.
