  • When it comes to comfort and style, the X Rocker Pulse chair is at the head of the class. It’s padded backrest, ergonomic design and flip-up armrests make it one of the most comfortable chairs on the market. Couple that with its slick, black leather look and you’ve got comfort and style all rolled up into one product. The upholstery material is a very soft vinyl like PU leather that is durable, easy to clean and feels very luxurious to the touch.
  • Much like other X Rocker Chairs, the Pulse 2.1 is loaded with one of the best audio systems of any gaming chair. The system is built on AFM Technology and provides a total 2.1 sound immersion experience.

  • You can totally feel the sound. They don’t call this chair the “Pulse” for no reason. The way that the sound system is integrated into the chair itself makes the gamer able to “feel” the sound. What it does is basically round out the audio experience to make it a full sensory chair that is sure to please even the most die-hard gamers. The way the speakers are designed into the chair makes the actual chair part of the speakers. the subwoofers fill all the available space within the chair to allow the sounds to magnify that you can feel all over.
