Can you add speakers to a gaming chair?

Best answer: Sadly, you cannot add speakers to a gaming chair. However, you can get gaming chairs that have speakers built into them.Gaming chair with speakers: X Rocker Pro Series H3 (opens in new tab) ($169 at Amazon)

So, why can't you add speakers?

The reason why you can't add speakers to your gaming chair is that any gaming chairs that don't already have them built-in won't have any space or room to hold speakers of your own. On top of this, managing the cables would be a serious pain.

Thankfully, though, you can get gaming chairs that have built-in speakers.

When it comes to choosing a gaming chair that has speakers built-in, we recommend going with the X Rocker Pro Series H3. It's packing quad front-facing speakers and powerful subwoofers that deliver an immersive and compelling sound experience. The chair is entirely compatible with both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 since all you need to do to get it working is to plug in the red and white A/V cables that would usually plug into your television into the chair instead. You can also connect the chair to your console wirelessly using X Rocker's wireless signal transmitter that's included in the box.

Aside from the excellent speaker system, the chair also features thick, comfy leather cushions and a cool vibration system that you can toggle on or off. It's compact, too, since you can fold it up if you need to move it. Lastly, the chair has a weight capacity of 275 pounds, which will be enough for most gamers. Overall, if your heart is set on getting a gaming chair with speakers in it, things don't get better than the X Rocker Pro Series H3.
