When we tried getting our hands on this DXRacer DOH chair it took us forever because it's always out of stock. Apparently it's pretty popular! The design and flow of the chair didn’t really strike us as anything special. Most people aren't attracted to orange and black as a color scheme combination but this chair has its own unique flow as most DXRacer chairs do.
Smooth looks and a striking design aren’t all that this DXRacer DOH chair offers. It sports exceptional functionality and some top end quality that we see so often from DXRacer Racing Series chairs. This chair provides a more snug fit than most other DX racer chairs, so if you’re on the larger side you might find it more than just a little uncomfortable. The way the Racing Series chairs are designed, they leave little room for extra padding or cushions. This is simply because DXRacer has tried to get as close to an actual racing seat as they possibly could. These bucket seats will, to an extent, hold you in place during high G maneuvers if you need them to – but we sincerely hope you never have to find out.
At the time of writing this, we found that the DXRacer DOH on Amazon has only 8 left in stock and while they’re frequently re-stocked, you might want to hurry before they’re gone. We were impressed with the amount of detail that the chair had when it arrived, such as the little foot rests on each individual leg of the base and the places they choose to incorporate the orange design.
It really is quite a shame that not many other race style gaming chair manufacturers include built-in footrests to their seats like this DXRacer DOH chair does. While it does come with its own set of drawbacks, it does some things really well. While it is a little lower on the budget scale of the DXRacer Racing Series of chairs, it does possess DXRacer’s standard level of quality. It’s true that it lacks a lot of features that can be found on its more expensive siblings, but at that price tag, it makes for an incredibly good mid-range gaming chair. This chair is also often found on sale at retailers, simply because its color scheme isn’t quite as popular as DXRacer had expected it to be. It’s an absolute steal if you can find one that’s on sale.
This DXRacer DOH chair provides a relatively thin back compared to the seating area of the chair. The DOH/RE0/NO Newedge Edition of the DXRacer lineup has a pretty thick padded seat. One thing that comes included with all DXRacer racing series chairs is the high back and seating position so that you can comfortably rest your head in an elevated position without putting any kind of pressure on your neck.
The PU material of the cushion is also breathable, which means it doesn’t sink in after only a month of use and it reforms back to the original shape after you leave the chair. This is great for people that plan on using the chair for a long period of time.
The foam padding is also designed to be resistant to moisture and mold that will cause it to deteriorate at a faster rate. While most of the upholstery is synthetic faux leather, some of the harder parts – like the backrest – come with harder, plastic padding underneath. This helps keep the surfaces breathable while still providing the necessary support for good comfort. The shoulder rests also have a bit of plastic beading that runs along the edge of two seat belt cavities. Although these cavities serve no real purpose on a gaming chair – as compared to a racing chair where they route seat belts – they still look good and give the chair a little bit of that racing spirit.
Design & Style
The overall design of the chair really depends on your different tastes because there are a lot of DXRacer gaming chairs that look like this but some people don’t really like the color orange. We do however like how they strategically placed the stitching of the chairs and how the headrest of the chair extends extra high which seems to be an extra effort to support tall people.
With most DXRacer DOH chairs, the armrests of the chair were designed relatively small and weren’t built to be fully customizable but some people do customize them off the DXRacer website. The base of the chair is quite impressive as they’ve added a little splash of orange on the footrests.
DXRacer chairs are some of the most durable chairs in the world. For gaming, for sitting at your office or for whatever the use is, these chairs were built to last. The aluminum base comes in a very solid form and is part of a recent modern design. The base was made with a large center base but evenly thins out as it gets closer and closer to the wheels.
The wheels themselves are pretty high quality and turn with ease. The armrests are very durable as well, you can rest your arms on them for extended periods of time without worrying of sweat or of marks appearing on your arms thanks to the special grooves embedded into the armrests of this chair.
Although this chair doesn’t feature the finest accessories that DXRacer can provide, they’re still upgradable, which we think is just as important. Just about every moving part on this chair can be hot swapped with the parts of other DXRacer chairs. Need casters or wheels that are designed for long carpets? Swap them out with spares from the DXRacer store! If the armrests are a little too narrow for your tastes, you can have them replaced with just about any armrest that will fit the universal socket. I also really do love the fact that DXRacer offers a 2-year warranty on all of their chairs and parts bought from their stores. Even if you do end up damaging something, you’ve always got that peace of mind to keep you going.
