Since the pandemic, we have all been spending more time at home, and working from home has become the rule rather than the exception. We all learned too quickly just how uncomfortable it is to work in a makeshift office. The first thing you’ll notice is your dated office chair. Having the wrong chair is not only uncomfortable but can be bad for your health. Enter the X-Chair, an exquisitely designed office chair that will keep you comfortable all day and night. Below is my x-chair review and recommendation.
Overview of the X-Chair
You have probably seen the commercials but if not, here’s a quick overview of the X-Chair and why everyone is so curious about this new office chair design that is so comfortable.
Ordering the XChair
You can order the X-Chair online. Shipping is free and after I placed my order, my chair arrived in about a week in this box.
You get tracking so you’ll know exactly what day to expect your chair. You can also choose expert setup but I wouldn’t recommend it as it’s super easy to assemble and there are only 7 screws. Just know that the chair is heavy, which is an indicator of quality so you may need some help bringing it in your house.
Here’s a photo of the opened box. It looks a little overwhelming a first but keep in mind you really only need to assemble a few parts and it took me about 20 minutes from opening the box to having it fully installed and ready to use. I’m not the handiest person so if I can do it, you probably can too.
Although the packaging looks jumbled, the chair is packed safely and I didn’t find any dents or scratches after unboxing. All the parts are wrapped well.
The wheels fit easily into the frame and will lock into place after you sit on the seat of the chair.
The seat of the X-Chair is the heaviest piece.
How Much Does the X-Chair Cost?
Prices for the X-Chair vary depending on what model and features you choose. For this review, I purchased the X2 Executive Task Chair with the cooling, heating, and massage feature for $1,029. But you can go with their basic model which starts at $699 or go with the X-Tech Executive that can go above $2,0o0 with certain features. Compare that with an Amazon Basics Office Chair at $90. But trust me, I have sat in the Amazon Basics office chair for hours and days at a time. It was comfortable for the first 30 minutes then I started to fidget and feel the need to get up and walk. That was not the case with the X-chair.
My XChair Findings and Recommendation
I spent my career as a librarian for 15 years sitting on Herman Miller Aeron Chairs which are comfortable but also pricey and aren’t as customizable as the X-chair. I am 6’3 and weigh over 200 lbs. so the ability to have a chair that can accommodate by larger size is a plus. From an aesthetic standpoint, I also like the look of the X-Chair over the Herman Miller Aeron Chair.
Yes, it does cost a lot but considering this is the piece of furniture you will be using the most maybe aside from your mattress, it’s a worthy investment.
A few things really stood out about the X-Chair:
DVL – Dynamic Variable Lumbar support. This is the lower part of the back of the chair that gently cradles your lower back and will move inwards or outward depending on how far back you sit. You are constantly getting support which gives you the stamina to work through the hardest grinds.
Sci Float Infinite Recline
You can adjust the tension on the recline so that it is effortless to lean back and come back up without any jerking sensations that cheaper chairs have. I’m a rocker and like to move back and forth on my chair constantly so having this option work so smoothly was impressive.
X-Chair Trial, Returns, and Warranty.
The X-Chair comes with a 30-day trial where you can try it out in your home for 3o days and if you aren’t happy with it during the trial period you can return it. Just keep in mind that they will keep $149 of the purchase price to send a return kit so it’s not a full refund but still not bad considering how heavy this chair is and chances are you will probably keep it. If you do keep it, you are backed by a 15-year warranty. Some of the highlights of the warrant are that all moving parts are covered for 5 years while the metal components are for 5 years.
Where Can You Try the XChair?
Right now there aren’t many places to try the Xchair. Fortunately, we now have the Xchair available to try at our San Diego Sleep Sherpa Showroom.

The X77 Massage Chair is my top pick for massage chairs for tall people. Some of the other popular brands with enclosed foot massagers are too small for my feet. I wear a size 13. The X-Chair foot massage feature has open feet so it’s much more comfortable for tall people or just people with big feet.
