Noble chairs brand has established itself in the marketplace as a leader in quality gaming and office chairs. Noble Chairs products started in Germany and are said to be “inspired by the interiors of luxury sports cars.” Another added plus about the Noble gaming chair is that they are made of real leather. The company designed the chairs with gamers and office workers in mind, and yes, the price tag does reflect that.
Given though that many of us spend an inordinate amount of time seated in our lifetime, we wanted to test out the Noble Chair’s office chair claims for ourselves.
The Noble Chairs Epic Series RL is the brand’s most exclusive chair. Its seat is made of real leather, and it boasts exquisite stitching and embroidery that you would expect in a chair in the $500 price range. Noble gaming chairs have fully adjustable backrests and armrests to go along with their ergonomic design to help people who suffer from back and posture related issues.
Let’s take a look to see if this chair is as good as claimed.
Receiving a Noble chair
The Noble chair arrived at our workshop, and I was immediately greeted by an out of breath delivery man who managed to get the chair to our doorstep. I immediately saw the branded Noble Chairs chair box and was struck by the sheer weight of the box. I have reviewed other Noble gaming chairs, and this one was certainly the heaviest I have experienced.
I opened up the Noble gaming chair box where I found the branded Noble Chairs gaming chair backrest with everything neatly organized as you would expect from a high-end item. I meticulously removed the individual parts and was pleasantly surprised that assembly did not look too difficult.
In fact, there weren’t thousands of screws and moving parts. Also, the instructions were broken down into very clear English. As I spread the contents out on my floor, I thought to myself that today I might be able to assemble this Noble office chair in under an hour. (I am probably the least mechanically inclined person in the world). Without the contents removed from the box, I decided to get cracking…
Noble Gaming And Office Chair
- Easily transportable and moved easily from room-to-room with the handle that was installed for convenience.
- UltimaX beans are designed for ultimate comfort as they react like sponges when you sit down and expand when you stand up.
- Refilling the Noble office chair is a breeze, and there’s a standard safety feature with the double-locked zippers to keep unwanted hands out.
- Not only are the beans cost effective and inexpensive, but the surface feels soft to the touch, just like the expensive bean bag chairs on the market.
- The Noble office chair was a bit smaller than it looked in the picture when it arrived, so you do need to be an average or somewhat smaller person to use this effectively.
- If you are somebody who gets hot when using memory foam, then you might overheat with this chair.
As previously stated, I am not very mechanically inclined, and as such, can barely call myself a “real” man…. I tend to make a mess of anything that requires assembly or repair, and I seldom read directions, let alone follow them. So, this will not be the most technical assembly review you will have read.
Noble chairs make you feel good about assembly by not having lots of parts. The few screws that you need are stored within the chair and need to be removed before starting assembly. Honestly, there are very few parts or steps to confuse you:
- I first connected the wheels to the base; they just click in place very easily – I think too easily. They don’t even screw in, but they seemed to fit great.
- I attached the backrest to the base unit. For anyone with some assembly experience, I am sure this would be a quick process. However, it took me a little to get everything lined up; nothing drastic and only a few minutes in total. The screws went in easily unlike previous Noble Chairs items where it wasn’t so smooth.
- I then attached the tilt mechanism to the seat which allows it to be adjusted. This consisted of four screws that were no issue at all to install.
- I then added the hydraulics to the wheelbase. The hydraulics took about five seconds to install and then the plastic covers just a matter of seconds. So far so good.
- I then simply placed the top of the chair onto the hydraulics to make it complete.
- I screwed in the cosmetic side covers to cover up the screws and, that was it.
- I added the pillow to the chair for the lumbar support.
With assembly now complete, I stood back and looked at my work and thought to myself, surely I have done something wrong as it took me only 25 minutes in total. I pulled the adjuster lever to adjust the backrest tilt, and it worked like a dream! I sat in the Noble office chair, fully expecting it to break as a result of missing an assembly step, but to my surprise, it was absolutely fine.
It was at this point that I felt ready to call in the family and tell them of my conquest, explain to them that I am a real man, and to show them my creation.
The Noble office chair does ooze style and class. It is obvious that Noble Chairs are trying to attract the discerning customer or the person that really takes his or her chairs seriously. It has quite a retro look to me, and although the Noble gaming chair is really a gaming chair, I could see it as a classy office chair too.
I have it in my office right now next to my old chair (brand unnamed), and it really stands out. With its regal gold logo and impeccable stitching, along with a very clean design, the Noble gaming chair delivers exactly what one would expect when spending a bit more for quality.
Sleek and understated, this Noble office chair would not look out of place in most office settings. The boxed stitching adds an elegant aesthetic which also serves a practical purpose. The padding is consistent throughout and does not get bunched up.
The material used on the backrest and the seat of Noble gaming chair has small perforations to allow your skin to breathe and keep you from overheating. Keeping cool while you work or game will allow you to keep going and stay focused on the job at hand.
Things that stood out for me in terms of style were:
- Retro and grandiose design.
- Sturdy appearance and incredible attention to detail.
- Embroidered diamond pattern on the seat.
- Branded headrest and lumbar support; yes, it is a small thing, but it adds to the quality feel of the chair.
- With the look of a luxury car seat, it makes you want to relax in the chair and show it off.
- An understated yet classy design that is not the “racing red” style of many other Noble Chairs gaming chairs, this is for the distinguished and serious gamer.
The Noble office chair would fit into any office or game room and certainly would make you feel like your money was well spent.
This Noble Chairs office chair and others are usually best purchased on Amazon because of their low prices, their tremendous reviews, and their fast shipping. There are other places where Noble Chairs items are available, but you may not get the same guaranteed quality, fair price, or customer service, which is why we recommend ordering explicitly from Amazon. Noble office chairs are also sold directly from the U.S. and orders filled from the U.S., so you don’t have to worry about a lengthy shipping delay from another country when you order.
However, one thing to keep in mind is that you do have to buy your own refill beans if you ever need to refill the Noble office chair.
Set up is very easy. The Noble office chair is all self-contained within the box it arrives in. It comes compressed, so once you take it out of the bag, you will need to fluff it up as much as possible. Give it 7 to 10 days to expand to its full size. Yes, this is quite a long time to wait, but the premium fill is different from typical memory foam and needs more time to reach its final size. Your patience will be rewarded with one of the most comfortable bean bag chairs on the market.
The fill is made with special foam peanuts called UltimaX that will conform to your body when seated and then will pop right back into shape once you get up. Since they are small though, they will need to be fluffed up occasionally to get the chair back to where you like it.
Functions and specifications
As mentioned previously, Noble gaming chair is made with 100% real leather. In fact, all the materials used are of the highest quality. From the reinforced outer packaging to the solid steel frame and backrest, everything exudes the first class.
Even the logo embroidered into the Noble gaming chair is in gold – just like true royalty. Does all this matter? We will let you know in a year, but for now, it makes the chair seem like a thing of beauty to us; one that is precision-built and worthy of our hard-earned dollars.
Besides the striking good looks of Noble Chairs, the design is ergonomic and will improve the circulation to your legs and up your back, as well as your seated posture. This prevents fatigue and will keep you focused.
Your posture is something you shouldn’t even have to think about, so it’s nice to have a comfortable chair that automatically puts you in the best possible seating position that benefits your spine alignment.
Tiltability (Is that a word?)
The lever on the right side of Noble gaming chairs are similar to that seen in cars and allows you to adjust the tilt of the backrest. From “overly upright” to the nearly horizontal “lay down for a massage” position, this chair has a tilt angle for backs of all shapes and sizes and players of all types.
It is very easy to adjust, and everyone will be able to achieve that perfect fit that they find most comfortable.
The Noble chair armrests are fully adjustable, and they easily move up and down and side-to-side to support the perfect arm position. This is a detail I haven’t seen in previous Noble Chairs products.
While it isn’t something that I would actively look for in a chair, I’m glad the feature is available. It really enables the chair to be fine-tuned so that my arms are positioned in the most comfortable place, adding to my overall enjoyment of the chair.
If you are a big gamer, you may need a little extra space in the seat area. Simply adjust the armrests out away from your body, and you will have loads more space to move around without feeling restricted.
Swingability (Is that a word?)
Now, if you like swinging in your gaming or office chair, then this gets a 10 out of 10 for the swing factor. My wife came in and swung in it and then encouraged the kids to do the same.
I had to leave the room as I couldn’t bear to see them break my creation. Surprisingly though, it held up to the test. When I came back, they assured me that it was the most swingable chair they had ever sat in... each to their own, I guess.
The Noble Chairs Epic Series chair is EXCEEDINGLY sturdy. I again tested this against other chairs we have tried, and it stands head and shoulders above the rest. The faux leather on my normal chair has a lot of indentation in it, but the real leather of the Noble Chairs item looks like it will take years to show any wear.
I know you’re thinking to yourself that I’m gushing over this chair, but I am trying to get across to the readers just how solid it feels to sit in it.
The Noble Chairs Epic Series chair is sturdy and, as a result, it is quite heavy. I recommend that you assemble it in the room that you intend to use it in. The components are very strong, and the solid steel frame adds a lot of weight to it, so moving from one floor to the next isn’t the easiest thing to do by yourself.
The chair is very firm and supportive. It is clearly built to last, and the real leather base means it is a firmer seat than my other Noble Chairs product or some of the cheaper overly foam-filled ones.
I personally prefer this feature as it helped me sit in a better posture position without sinking into the seat cushion too much. In the day, I use it as an office chair and have the back more upright and slid under my desk to help me sit up straighter.
When gaming, I tend to use the reclining option to tilt the chair back, which is my most comfortable position. I am only two weeks and a minimum of eight hours a day into using the chair, but I have had zero back problems to date (I tend to suffer from lower back pain).
Comfort shouldn’t be thought of as a luxury but more of a necessity. If you are spending hours at a time in a chair, then you should expect to feel comfortable. Unfortunately, lesser chairs skimp on the things that will let you feel as though no time has passed at all.
It is too early to make the call on durability, so this aspect will have to be revisited again with an updated review in the coming months. That said, everything points to the chair being a very durable chair that will stand the test of time.
The high-quality components and firm build would lead me to think it will outlast my other Noble Chairs items whose seats have lost their shape over time. I am 16 stone (of solid muscle…??) OK, 16 stone, and so I know a bit about warping chairs over a sustained period.
My money says that this one will hold its shape and also its functionality, but I will get back to that down the road after I’ve put this thing through its paces for an extended period.
Cold cured foam is soft but very durable. Once it breaks in, it will feel soft as you sit on it, but it bounces back as soon as you stand up and won’t compact over time. Even at the maximum weight allowance, the foam will stay evenly distributed and as comfortable as the day you bought it for many years to come.
When I first saw the Noble Chairs Epic Series chair’s price tag, I thought in all honesty that they were trying to add a premium price and probably couldn’t justify it. I quickly noted the precision and love that had gone into manufacturing the chair.
From the packaging it came in, to the detail that went into every component used, they went above and beyond to design the perfect chair. While achieving perfection may be unrealistic, I think Noble Chairs did a fantastic job and came about as close as they could to meeting my exacting standards.
The Noble Chairs Epic series gaming and office chair will fit into a high-end office or gamers den and seamlessly blend into its surroundings. Considering that many of us spend hundreds of days and thousands of hours a year in a chair, suddenly it doesn’t seem so extravagant at around $550. Add to that the fact that many people have bad posture, back issues and more, and not investing in a chair like this seems like a bad mistake!
There are a lot of gaming chairs on the market; a lot are cookie-baked racing red and made of cheap materials from factories all around the world. Noble Chairs brand has succeeded in making a chair that shows they are in the market to stay, love chairs, and want to be the exclusive chair of choice. Until now, from all the Noble Chairs products I have tested, they have succeeded in their goal with the Noble Chairs Epic Series chair.
