In Canada, Anda Seat maintains their presence by sponsoring top esports tournaments. Those include Red Bull Adrenalan, Lan ETS (Canada’s biggest LAN party), WESG Canada, and many others.

Anda Seat Overview

This section looks at the common aspects shared by all Anda Seat gaming chairs.

How to buy Anda Seat chairs

Anda Seat sells chairs in the United States via Andseat.com. The company also operates .ca and .co.uk domains to service Canadian and UK customers. In Asia (SE Asia, China, Hong Kong, etc) Anda Seat sells through places like Shopee and Lazada.

In this article, all of the “buy now” buttons point to AndaSeat.com chairs available for sale to customers in the United States. It also includes Amazon links for UK buyers. In both places, the selection is almost the same.

Anda Seat features

All Anda Seat gaming chairs start with a steel frame and two layers of padding. Over the frame goes 2.5″ of cold-cured high-density foam. Then, over the cold-cured foam goes another layer of 1.5″ thick memory foam.

Anda Seat gaming chair parts
Anda Seat chairs come with a steel frame, two layers of padding and a choice of PVC cover materials.

All cover options are a faux leather PVC blend. PVC is more durable, flexible and soft. It lasts much longer, has no chemical smell and is super easy to clean. Covers come in a range of styles and qualities. On more expensive Anda Seat chairs, the leather is softer and more breathable. On the cheaper models, the feel is a little tougher, more like vinyl than buttery leather.

Across the entire line, Anda Seat gaming chairs share these features:

  1. PVC leather or fabric upholstery: most models use ultra-tough faux PVC leather in a range of styles. Two models come covered in breathable linen fabric.
  2. Double layered padding: two layers of padding (1.5″ of memory foam plus 2.5″ of high density cold cured foam).
  3. Deep recline: all models come with deep recline to 160°. Per our Gaming Chair User Manual, you should position between 100-110° for working. Position deeper back for relaxing or napping.
  4. Neck and lumbar pillows: all support pillows contain Viscoelastic Foam. This adapts to your body shape while retaining its shape. When positioned correctly, these support the neck. They also ensuring that the spine remains in optimal alignment.
  5. Sturdy support: several support enhancements give Anda Seats a super-solid feel. First there is a 22 mm diameter enhanced steel frame. Then there is the heavy-duty 5-point aluminium base. Beneath the base are smooth rolling casters (60 mm on smaller chairs, 65 mm on heavyweight chairs). Finally there is a Class 4 gas-powered lift that supports up to 250 kg.

Anda Seat warranty

All Anda Seat gaming chairs come with a lifetime warranty on the steel frame. Parts come with two years of warranty protection.

Anda Seat warranty
Get warranty protection for up to six years when you buy an Anda Seat chair.

Like many other high-end chair brands, Anda Seat also offers a warranty extension option.

  1. Take a photo of your new Anda Seat Chair.
  2. Post the photo on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, Youtube or Twitch. Use the hashtag #Andaseat. Make sure the post is set to “public” so the Anda Seat team can see your post.
  3. Copy the post URL and submit it. Follow these Anda Seat instructions.

Warranty aside, how durable are Anda seat gaming chairs? In our experience, you can count on Anda’s premium chairs to hold up to full-time use for 2-3 years. The parts and build are super-strong, while Anda Seat covers are among the toughest we’ve seen on gaming chairs. The first thing you can expect to wear down is padding, but that will take a few years.

With Anda’s cheaper chairs, it depends on how you use them. The main difference between cheap vs expensive gaming chairs is the padding. Cheaper models don’t hold up as well under heavy use. Using a cheaper Anda model part-time, they should also last around 2-3 years.

Anda Seat premium gaming chair reviews

Anda Seat’s premium chairs come with high-end features, extra-thick padding, and spacious seating dimensions. These chairs have 4D armrests, a multifunction tilt mechanism, deep recline, and high-density molded foam padding.

Anda Seat Fnatic Edition

Factory price: $449

Anda Seat Fnatic partnership

Back in May, Anda Seat announced a partnership with Fnatic. That is a UK-based esports team. Based on total career earnings, Fnatic is the fourth most successful esports team of all time.

Official Fnatic chairs by Anda Seat
The official gaming chair of the Fnatic Esports organization.

The Fnatic edition is the premier esports design in Anda Seat collection. Top teams like Fnatic typically train 10-12 hours each day. These hours are mentally taxing and very intense. To stay fresh over such long periods, having a high-quality ergonomic chair is essential.

The chair uses the trademark Fnatic black and orange color scheme. The Fnatic logo appears on the front of the chair in orange and on the back in a dark outline. It’s also written along the top edge of the chair. Even so, the branding isn’t overbearing. These designs work even if you’re not a fan of esports or Fnatic.

Features

Fnatic gaming chair features

The Fnatic edition has the same rich features as the other high-end Anda Seat chairs. Each chair comes with a neck pillow and an extra-large lumbar pillow.

  • Functionality: 4D armrests; recline to 160°; lockable tilt mechanism.
  • Comfort: extra-large neck and lumbar pillows.
  • Cover options: dark PVC upholstery with orange trim.

Fnatic chairs come with thick, ultra-durable PVC leather. This stuff is thicker and stronger than PU leather blends, but also less breathable. In very hot weather, this chair can get a bit sticky against bare skin.

Sizing

Anda Seat rates the Kaiser Series to support users from 5’9″ to 6’8″ weighing up to 441 pounds. That said, the recommended weight capacity is 330 pounds. Broadly, these dimensions should support most people of average sizes and above. Smaller users will find a spacious fit, while extra-wide users will find it more body-hugging.

  • Seat width & depth: 22.83″ (W) x 21.65″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 34.21″ (H), 23.23″ (W)
  • Floor to seat range: 18.35″ to 20.59″
  • Chair height: 52.5″ to 54.8″
  • Size rating: fits people 5’9″ to 6’8″ tall; up to 440 pounds

Summary

The Anda Seat Fnatic Edition has the qualities to support some of the best esports players in the world. Gamers will find that these chairs provide high-level comfort and plenty of adjustment options. Non-gaming office workers will also enjoy these models.

Compared to cheap office chairs, these models provide mind-blowing support. They are good for your back, your posture, and your well-being.

Kaiser Series

Factory price: $479.99

The Kaiser Series is a stunning wine-red chair with extra-large cushions that cover the entire backrest. This model supports 441 pounds and caters to a range from average to super-sized bodies.

Anda Seat Kaiser Series review
The Kaiser Series is an office-style luxury gaming chair.

Features

The Anda Seat Kaiser Series is our #3-rated heavyweight gaming chair. Both the Kaiser Series and Dark Knight enjoyed upgrades for 2020. Each model now supports up to 441 pounds with an improved base and tilt mechanism.

Anda Seat Kaiser Series back support
The extra large Kaiser Series pillows cradle the head and support the lower back.

Both also have super-sized support pillows. The Kaiser Series has the largest pillows. Its neck pillow uses form-fitting memory foam to cradle the neck and head while sitting. Meanwhile, the large lumbar cushion uses high-density memory foam. That helps to absorb the brunt of your upper body weight while you sit.

  • Functionality: 4D armrests; recline to 160°; lockable tilt mechanism.
  • Comfort: extra-large neck and lumbar pillows.
  • Cover options: only available in wine-red PVC leather.

For best ergonomic results, check our Gaming Chair User Guide. That teaches how to use the recline, armrests and other parts for optimal comfort and support.

Sizing

Anda Seat rates the Kaiser Series to support users 7’1″ weighing up to 441 pounds. That said, their recommended size is 5’9″ to 6’9″ and 176 pounds. As a super-heavyweight chair, the Kaiser Series might be too narrow for people with very wide hips. Extra-large users will find a snug fit with solid support. Sitting in a Kaiser Series feels like sitting in a tank.

The Kaiser Series also works well for average-sized users. People with slimmer hips will find this a roomy seat with generous (but firm) padding support.

  • Seat width & depth: 22.83″ (W) x 21.65″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 34.21″ (H), 23.23″ (W)
  • Floor to seat range: 19.3-22″
  • Chair height: 53.5-57.4″
  • Size rating: fits people 5’9″ to 7’1″ tall; up to 441 pounds

Summary

The Kaiser Series is Anda Seat’s most luxurious office-style gaming chair. You can feel the quality of this model as soon as you sit in it. While the features and adjustability are top-tier, what really stands out about the Kaiser Series is comfort. If you’re looking for a plush seating experience with comfort as a priority, the Kaiser is a great choice.

Dark Knight

Amazon price: $526.42

The Anda Seat Dark Knight has the exact same features and dimensions as the Kaiser Series. It’s our #4-rated best heavyweight gaming chair.

There are two main differences between the Dark Knight and the Kaiser Series. First, the Dark Knight uses a different blend of black Carbon Fiber leather. Carbon Fiber is the most durable blend. Cheap Carbon Fiber feels like tire rubber. Of course, Anda uses a premium PVC blend. The final result is more durable, but not as soft or breathable as the Kaiser Series.

The second difference is the price. Both chairs are almost the same, yet the Dark Knight costs around $100 more.

Anda Seat Dark Knight
The Dark Knight is one of Anda Seat’s premier extra-large gaming chairs.

Summary

The Dark Knight is a tempting choice. It has similar features as the Kaiser Series, but in black PVC leather. Head-to-head, the Kaiser Series leather feels softer. The Dark Knight leather has a more synthetic feel to it. In very hot weather, the Dark Knight can get sticky. To keep it clean, wipe down with a disinfectant spray every day before you start using it.

Choosing between the Kaiser Series and Dark Knight is a matter of preference. If you don’t mind the limits of PVC leather in hot weather, the Dark Knight is a lot more durable.

Dark Knight on Amazon.com (USA only) $526.42

Throne Series

Factory price: $509.99

The Throne Series has the same ergonomic features as the other premium chairs, with three differences. One is the seat — this model is a little deeper than the others. Another is the upholstery. Throne chairs have Carbon Fiber trim plus perforated PVC over the seat and backrest contact points. The textured Carbon Fiber accents are gorgeous, while the perforated parts offer superb breathability.

Anda Seat Throne Series
Throne chairs have breathable upholstery plus phone-controlled RGB lighting.

The third difference is a gamer’s delight. Throne chairs come in standard and RGB versions. The latter offers RGB lighting across the backrest and edges of the chair, which you control using your phone.

Features

Standard Throne chairs are large and luxurious. On RGB models, a thin strip of RGB lighting runs across the sides of the seat and backrest. Two panels in the upper part of the backrest also illuminate.

Anda Seat Throne key features
Standout features include RGB lighting plus breathable Carbon Fiber upholstery.

  • Functionality: 4D armrests; recline to 160°; multifunction tilt-lock.
  • Optional extra: phone-controlled RGB lighting along the seat and backrest.
  • Comfort: extra-large memory foam neck and lumbar pillows.
  • Upholstery: perforated black PVC leather with Carbon Fiber trim.

Beyond the RGB option, the upholstery is also noteworthy. PVC is the most durable type of faux leather, but also the least breathable. Adding perforations solves that problem. That results in a super-durable seat that always stays cool.

Sizing

Throne Series chairs have deeper seats than the other big and tall Anda Seat chairs. Otherwise, dimensions are similar. Throne chairs offer luxurious support for big beefy bodies.

  • Seat width & depth: 22.95″ (W) x 24.50″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 35.42″ (H), 23.23″ (W)
  • Chair height: 52.5-54.8″ (W)
  • Size rating: fits people 5’9″ to 6’8″ tall; up to 440 pounds

Summary

The Throne is the most expensive chair on the Anda Seat roster. It offers a deeper seat and a different upholstery style than other models. Otherwise, it offers a similar level of ergonomic luxury. What makes this chair stand out is the RGB lighting addon.

As most PC gamers know, RGB is an addictive add-on that helps set the mood around your workspace. The RGB version of the Throne is not necessary, but lots of fun. Use it to set your mood while working, or to broadcast one while streaming.

Combined with the luxurious upholstery, the RGB feature makes the Throne a very attractive option.

The Throne RGB edition is also available on Amazon.co.uk. Free shipping is included.

Anda Seat fabric chair reviews

Earlier this year, Anda Seat added two different lines of fabric gaming chairs. While most fabric chairs use woven nylon, Anda Seat fabric chairs use linen. This blend is a small percentage less breathable than woven nylon fabric chairs. Even so, it’s still a lot more breathable than faux leather chairs.

The main advantages are that fabric gaming chairs are more durable and more breathable. The material is tear-proof and soft to the touch.

One difference between linen and woven nylon fabric is the texture. Linen blends are smoother. Linen chairs also generate less static electricity than woven nylon models. That means in hot, dry weather, you won’t have to deal with electric shocks.

T-Pro Series

Factory price: $439.99

The T-Pro differs from other Anda Seat designs with smoother lines and a wider seat. Other Anda chairs have ridged edges that restrict leg movement. In contrast, the flat edges on T-Pro seats provide enough room to sit cross-legged.

Anda Seat T-Pro gaming chairs
T-Pro chairs come with a choice of blue or grey line fabric upholstery.

Features

T-Pro chairs live up to the name with the same pro features as other high-end models.

Closeup of T-Pro gaming chairs

The key differences are the flat, wide seat, and linen upholstery.

  • Functionality: 4D armrests; recline to 160°; multifunction tilt-lock.
  • Comfort: large-sized velour neck and lumbar pillows.
  • Cover options: grey or blue linen fabric with black trim.

Sizing

T-Pro chairs are wide, spacious, and super-sturdy, with support for up to 400 pounds. The flat, wide seat, and spacious dimensions provide a comfortable, relaxing fit for a range of sizes. Most wider-than-normal users 5’9″ and up should fit comfortably in these chairs.

  • Seat width & depth: 21.65″ (W) x 23.03″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 34.17″ (H), 23.82″ (W)
  • Floor to seat range: 19.3-22″
  • Chair height: 51.7 to 57.3″
  • Size rating: fits people 5’9″ to 6’8″ tall; up to 440 pounds

Summary

In the work-from-home era, fabric gaming chairs have become very popular. One reason is likely because fabric chairs are more comfortable.

Anda Seat T-Pro gaming chairs

Over long periods of working (especially in hot weather) leather chairs can get sticky. In comparison, fabric chairs always stay cool. T-Pro chairs are soft, spacious, and very comfortable. The subdued styling makes these appropriate for both gamers and full-time computer users.

What’s more, T-Pro chairs are ultra-durable. They also come with hefty warranty protection.

In sum, T-Pro chairs are excellent options for power users. Office workers, gamers, content creators, and other power users will love these chairs.

T-Pro 2 Series

Factory price: $449.99

The T-Pro 2 Series is the only chair in this review only available in America. These have the same features and similar dimensions as original T-Pro chairs.

T-Pro 2 Series gaming chairs
T-Pro 2 chairs have the same features and dimensions as original T-Pro models.

T-Pro 2 chairs offer two differences. The first is that they come in a wider choice of colors. Choose a design in black, blue, or grey.

T-Pro versus T-Pro 2 seat styles
T-Pro 2 chairs have ridged edges that restrict leg movement for sharper posture support.

The second difference is that T-Pro 2 chairs have ridged edges. Those restrict leg movement and prevent users from sitting cross-legged. A flatter seat design tends to be more comfortable, but less strict with posture. In contrast, ridged edges keep the legs planted to provide better back support.

Other Anda Seat gaming chairs

The above chairs are high-end pro models with the best padding and richest ergonomic features. The following models have adequate but less luxurious padding. They also lack the multifunction tilt-lock of the high-end models. That means you can rock the chair or lock it in place. With a tilt-lock feature, you can also tilt and lock the seat at different angles. Over very long periods of sitting, that gives you more options to keep your seated body moving.

Dark Demon

Current price: Price not available

The Dark Demon was one of the original Anda Seat Designs. Back in 2018, it was one of our favorites. Sadly, Anda Seat discontinued the Dark Demon line in late 2019.

The original Dark Demon chair was discontinued in 2019.

In fact, it wasn’t discontinuation, but rather a revamping. Recently, Anda Seat relaunched the Dark Demon with an upgraded design in two color options.

Anda Seat Dark Demon chairs
New Dark Demon chairs come in two different color styles.

Dark Demon Features

Dark Demon chairs lack the multifunction tilt-lock of the premium Anda Seat chairs. Instead, the lever under the seat of the Dark Demon has two functions. Use it to adjust the chair height, or disable the rocking function. Aside from that difference, ergonomic features are the same as Anda Seat’s high-end models.

  • Functionality: 4D armrests; recline to 160°; seat rocking plus tilt-tension.
  • Comfort: regular-sized neck and lumbar pillows.
  • Cover options: black and white PVC leather with blue, red, or grey trim.

Sizing

The Dark Demon is an average-sized chair. Most users with moderately thick legs or wide hips

  • Seat width & depth: 21.26″ (W) x 22.32″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 34.17″ (H), 20.47″ (W)
  • Size rating: fits people 5’2″ to 6’2″ tall; up to 350 pounds

Summary

The new Anda Seat Dark Demon is a tough, rugged gaming chair. The PVC leather feels indestructible and the parts feel solid. But it doesn’t look as spectacular as Anda Seat’s other chairs. Also, the padding doesn’t feel as generous.

Dark Demon chair styles

Users on a budget wanting a high level of luxury should consider these models. With the extended 6-year warranty, expect a Dark Demon to serve as a solid long-term ergonomic chair.

Pretty in Pink

Factory price: $399.99

Anda Seat Pretty in Pink gaming chair

This is a variation of the Dark Demon, with a pink and white color scheme.

Features

One difference between this chair and the Dark Demon is 3D armrests instead of 4D. The 4D options move up/down, back/forward, side-to-side, and at angles. The 3D version lack angle adjustments.

  • Functionality: 3D armrests; recline to 160°; seat rocking with tilt-tension.
  • Comfort: regular-sized neck and lumbar pillows.
  • Cover options: premium pink PVC leather with white trim.

Sizing

The Pretty in Pink chair has the same dimensions as the Dark Demon:

  • Seat width & depth: 21.26″ (W) x 22.32″ (D)
  • Backrest height & width: 34.17″ (H), 20.47″ (W)
  • Size rating: fits people 5’2″ to 6’2″ tall; up to 350 pounds

Summary

Among the best pink gaming chairs, the Pretty in Pink chair is the most expensive. But it has consumer-level features, not pro ones.

On the positive side, this model’s six-year warranty beats all others. Expect a solid, comfortable seat built to last for years.

Anda Seat Jungle

Factory price: $299

Anda Seat’s cheapest gaming chair comes with 2D armrests and small, slim-fitting dimensions. It has basic features and a very rugged, durable build.

Anda Seat Jungle gaming chair

The thick PVC leather is easy to clean with a damp cloth and nearly indestructible. The steel frame is guaranteed for life and feels super-sturdy.

Features

The key downgrade is the armrests. Jungle versions are 2D. They can adjust up and down, plus forward and backward.

  • Functionality: 2D armrests; recline to 160°; lockable tilt mechanism.
  • Comfort: regular-sized neck and lumbar pillows.

Conclusion

Anda Seat makes high-end pro-quality gaming chairs, and also consumer-class ones. The former all support at least 440 pounds and come with spacious dimensions. They also boast premium features like 4D armrests and a multifunction tilt-lock mechanism. These chairs match up well with the best big and tall luxury chairs in the world.

Anda Seat USA and UK gaming chair review

Anda Seat’s consumer-class chairs have lesser ergonomic features than the luxury models. They also cost more than comparable offerings from other brands. On the plus side, they are well-built and very durable. Even if you don’t get the extended 6-year warranty, you can expect your Anda Seat chair to last that long.
