Top 3 Features of X Rocker 5172601 Chair

There is a lot to like about this X Rocker 5172601 gaming chair, but we’ll focus just on the top three features.

  • It’s Built for the Modern Gamer: We have a preference, like most gamers, for chairs that also have audio capabilities. The X Rocker Surge has audio capabilities and much more. Stocked with two speakers and a subwoofer that utilizes AFT Technology, the player is quickly immersed in an amazing audio experience that rivals even the most expensive counterparts.

  • It’s Wireless if You Want It To Be: Wires are so twentieth century, the modern gamer wants and needs to be connected without being tethered and this product delivers on that need. It’s built-in Bluetooth technology receives signals from any Bluetooth capable device. If one of those is not available then its accessories package includes RCA cables for a wireless option. Keep in mind that the wireless aspect is about the audio. It does require a power cord to be plugged into an outlet. If there is one thing we would love to see changed, it is the length of the cord. We wish it were longer.
  • The Price Point: Cost and budget are always going to be a factor when scoping out potential buys and gaming chairs are no different. The X Rocker Surge Bluetooth 2.1 Gaming Chair isn’t the cheapest chair on the market, but it’s also far from the most expensive. Considering its features, the price is extremely affordable. We believe that you should always buy the best product your budget allows for. So, if you are looking for a wireless gaming chair, then you don’t want to try an inferior chair that won’t give you nearly the same capabilities as the X Rocker Bluetooth 5172601 gaming chair.

X Rocker Surge Bluetooth 2.1 Sound Gaming Chair 5172601


  • Wireless capabilities are a big plus with this product. It not only syncs up with your gaming console but also is a great product for watching television, listening to music and just relaxing. We’re considering this a unique selling point because we just don’t see this type of feature often enough and surely not in this price range.
    • Another positive with the X Rocker is its sound system. The audio quality is unparalleled by even the most expensive top of the line chairs. Not only does it deliver on gaming console sound but also works well with television and movies. Users can expect a very capable subwoofer able to deliver ample bass and a speaker system that provides high-quality sound. The way it is designed, the subwoofers send the sound through the available space within the chair itself. This magnifies the sound and adds to the immersive aspect of it. You can literally feel the sounds and music throughout your body for a unique experience.
    • The ergonomics of this chair are very well suited to keep your back comfortable while you game. Staying comfortable will keep you in the chair for many more hours of gaming without sacrificing your back health or ending up with body fatigue. If you love to game but don’t like how your body feels after then you owe it to yourself to try the X Rocker Bluetooth 5172601 gaming chair.
    • The rocker style construction offers supreme comfort and relaxation. The ergonomically designed backrest provides countless hours of comfort for those that indulge in marathon gaming sessions. We consider comfort the be a top priority and the X Rocker Surge doesn’t skimp on it in the least. The frame is very durable and can handle up to 250 pounds. The upholstery material is also very durable and will stay soft without breaking down over time. It is also very easy to clean using a damp cloth.
    • We really like the contemporary styling of this chair. The gray on black pattern with the red racing stripe conveys style and class – even in a gaming chair.
    • Not everybody has a lot of space in their home, so it is a nice feature that this X Rocker Bluetooth Gaming Chair can be folded up and stored in a closet when not in use.
    • Another notable feature on the X Rocker Surge is its control panel. Always within arm’s reach, these controls allow the user to set volume and bass levels for the ultimate sound experience. We consider these user-friendly controls to be a big plus, especially during online play when you may not have the luxury of fumbling with sound controls.
    • Assembly is very easy to do. one person can easily handle putting it together by themself and get it done in less than a half hour. Since it doesn’t need to be placed on a base or pedestal, it really simplifies the process.


  • While there is a lot to like with this product it does have some drawbacks. The most notable of these is that it is not compatible with the Xbox system. If your allegiance lies with Microsoft, you’ll probably want to look in another direction when selecting a gaming chair.
  • Another area of improvement we found with the X Rocker Surge is its weight. If you plan on moving this piece of equipment from room to room, you may want to consider a gym membership first as it is quite heavy and may pose problems if it needs to be moved from place to place.
