Ace Bayou X Rocker Chair Review

Another great product from the X-Rocker lineup comes to the 5172801 Ace Bayou Vibe Sound Chair. With the folding armrests and lightweight mobility, this chair is great for traveling and the home environment. The first thing you’ll notice about the chair is the striking and fierce red/black design. Also, it’s notable that X-Rocker chairs are notorious for being affordable to the gamer on a budget.

You won’t have to shell out hundreds for a gaming chair that provides comfort while you play. X-Rockers are known to keep budget gamers in mind and still provide the functionality and comfort of high-end chairs that can cost an arm and a leg. X-Rocker chairs are also known for having ease of access and customization built in with all their sound chairs. When you reach to your right while sitting in this chair, you’ll easily find the panel that allows you to control your volume and all the input outlets.

What's unique about this Ace Bayou X Rocker gaming chair is that it more closely resembles a racer chair in its design. This isn't just for looks. It makes for a much more ergonomic fit which will keep gamers in the chair longer and playing before the aches and pains start up. The mesh fabric on the backrest and seat will help keep you from overheating and wick your body heat away and into the chair.

The position is slightly different than most rockers as it doesn't cup you in, rather you sit in more or less an upright position. This is much better for your back and can keep your eyes at the same level of your monitor better. Then the height of the armrests help too with keeping you comfortable. And they can lifted up if you'd rather not have them in the way.

Assembly is very easy and can be done by one person. In essence, you are really only putting on the armrests.

X-Rocker vibe sound chair


  • This chair has nice folding armrests and lightweight mobility


  • A couple of different users have reported that the cushion was starting to slightly sink in after prolonged use but they had no complaints about the level of comfort provided.
  • We wish the power cord were longer. At 4 feet you have to position the chair close to the outlet which is somewhat limiting.


Between the comfort and the sound, there’s no better chair for the budget gamer on the market today than the Ace Bayou X Rocker chair.

Sound Quality – This Ace Bayou X Rocker comes with high quality immersive sound through a speaker and subwoofer that will enhance the quality of your gaming experience. With the speakers situated behind your head instead of from in front of you, you get a very immersive audio experience similar to surround sound at a theater. With the right settings, you can literally feel the sounds and music instead of just listening.

Comfort – This is a one of a kind lineup of chairs from the X-Rocker family and comfort is on par to none. You can sit for extended periods of time without feeling the burn and without that sore feeling. You may notice that when you sit in other chairs for a long period of time, you have to constantly stand up, stretch and shake off the deadweight in your legs/arms. You don’t have that problem with the X-Rocker lineup of chairs because they were built for people who spend lengthy periods of time in the chair.

Mobility – The chair is super lightweight. This chair is so lightweight, that even your children will be able to fold it up and move it to wherever they want. Since it doesn't have a pedestal as a base, it makes it very easy to carry around.

Other Points – The Ace Bayou X Rocker works great on any type of flooring and won’t leave scratch marks on the floor like some other chairs do with a hard aluminum or metal base frame that digs into wooden floors. It has a great rocking motion that may even make you sleepy if you’re in it for too long. The chair’s great for all kinds of uses and not just gaming. It’s a highly recommended chair for less than $200 and even has free shipping with Amazon Prime checked and last updated on 3rd november 2016.
