To determine which chair size is right for you, use Herman Miller’s reference chart.


Here is what other people who own the same chair as Timthetatman has to say about it:

I’m 6’1″ 275 pounds. Ok, yes, it’s a $1300 chair, but I was desperate from serious lower back pain, and I was willing to try anything. Within two weeks of having this chair, I have had NO back pain. NONE! I worked 12 hours in it yesterday and thought for sure I’d wake up in crazy pain this morning, but instead, I felt completely normal. Which is why I’m writing this review.” (Bryan1970, Amazon.com)


It’s perfect! For me… I mean, it simply isn’t going to work for everyone. I’ve sat in everything popular, and while they all have super strong merits, this is a standard for a reason. Please take your time and watch a video on adjusting the new one. It’s different. If you get the fully open “float” just right with the tension, it’s almost like a tailored chair.” (B3L12V3R, Amazon.com)


These chairs are great. However, I want to mention something crucial for those of you coming from Aeron Classic chairs. Herman Miller has changed the colors on the new chairs, and apparently, there is no longer a true black chair available. I returned my first set of Remastered chairs, thinking they were the wrong color, only to find out these new chairs simply do not come in anything darker than a dark gray color, with a medium-gray colored pellicle.” (A.R., Amazon.com)


This high-quality, American-made genuine Herman Miller Aeron chair is a delight to sit in, especially once all the adjustments are made. For the most part, the adjustments are intuitive, but I found a 3-minute Herman Miller Aeron video at youtube that pointed out how to adjust the forward tilt.” (S. Parler, Amazon.com)


Well, I suggest that you should not try this chair, stay away from the chair. If you do, you will buy it right there. Yes, it is that amazing. In the ’90s, had some flaws, and I can tell you those flaws are not there anymore. They addressed them, and it made the chair even better. I fully recommend it.” (Tad Sampson, Amazon.com)


Timthetatman chair price and which streamer has the most expensive chair?

Aeron chair isn’t the most expensive among all Herman Miller chairs. If money isn’t an issue, consider getting Herman Miller Embody chair.

Of course, a chair like this isn’t something that will improve your gaming skills. But if you’re a professional streamer like Timthetatman is, why not invest in a piece of equipment that potentially could save you from soring back, neck, or knees.

Also, for many professional streamers, gaming chairs are provided by their sponsors. Meaning sponsors provide personalized gaming chairs to streamers for free. Usually, personalization means having streamers logo and colors (fabric, stitching) of streamer’s choice on the chair.

Timthetatman purchased his computer chair himself. On his Twitch channel description, it says that Timthetatman has four sponsors – Audio-Technica, NZXT, Razer, and LG. So no Herman Miller as a sponsor.

So if you’re just starting out, don’t worry about getting super expensive streaming equipment. Do it if you can afford it, but it won’t be the main reason why people will subscribe to your channel.

Although, after getting a new chair Dr. Disrespect said that it transcended him beyond perfection. He’s using SIDIZ T80 ergonomic office chair.

Read about his $315.00 PC build in another article of mine HERE.

Among such streamers as Ninja, Summit1g, Tfue, and previously mentioned, Dr. Disrespect, Timthetatman, and Shroud both use $1,395.00 Herman Miller Aeron chairs.

Other chair brands that other streamers use are:

  • Maxnomic by NEEDforSEAT (Ninja)
  • Secretlab TITAN (Summit1g)
  • Maxnomic Commander S BWE (Tfue)
  • Vertagear Triiger 350 SE (Myth)
  • SIDIZ T80 (Dr. Disrespect)

So both Timthetatman and Shroud are using ergonomic office chairs. But how about the rest?

Ninja and Summit1g use pure gaming chairs, whereas Myth and Dr. Disrespect both have gone for office chairs. Tfue’s Maxnomic Commander S BWE is something between gaming and office chairs.

Ninja and Summit1g have the cheapest chairs among streamers mentioned in this article. Their chairs cost $399.00 each. So three times less expensive than Timthetatman’s gaming chair.

Does it make Timthetatman a better player?


Timthetatman chair break.

Gaming chairs brake. Well, at least that’s what happened in May 2016 during Timthetatman’s Twitch stream. The chair’s wheel simply came off.

It was a DXRacer chair that broke.

Their price range on the official DXRacer website varies between $399.00 and $481.00.

Could this accident be a reason why Timthetatman got such an expensive chair?

Now, if you’ve noticed that Timthetatman has upgraded his equipment once again, please let me know, and I will do my best to update this article.

Otherwise, I hope you had a good read and that this article was useful to you.

Thank you and see you online.
