Who is it for?
This high functioning chair can be used with a variety of gaming consoles including, but not limited to:
PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, PS DVD. This capability is incredible, as people, especially gamers, who have a variety of consoles. It is even possible that serious gamers have all of the above, or will at one point. The perks of having a chair that is compatible with all these consoles are that if you do have multiple types of consoles, you do not have to purchase different chairs and you can enjoy your surround system with all of them. The RC-5 is one of newest and greatest gaming chairs in the gaming world, and the multi-format feature is a big part of the quality.
Incredible Surround Sound!
With the GioTeck RC-5 gamers get to experience their game as if they were there. It really brings the setting of the game to the gamer. From racing sounds to the roar of the stadium to the battle cries, you will feel as though you are a part of the game. Included in the chair are two full range stereo speakers and game sound control, as well as input/ output jacks for more and different connections. With the speakers curved around your shoulders, it provides the perfect delivery of perfect sound straight to your ears. You will be able to feel the vibrations throughout your body as the bass rumbles through your body. This is thanks to the rumble subwoofer. This quality and intensity of sound is impeccable and delivers a surreal experience as a gamer. The sound system is the biggest part of a gaming chair that sets it apart from all the rest. The RC-5 has been set apart with the quality of sound it provides.
Is it Comfortable and Stylish?
The chair is stylish and sleek in it’s black and red fashion. The chair is all black with sleek red racecar piping. The stand is solid and round in order to provide a stable base to the chair. The chair is double foamed and has padding all over for comfort. The chair is low to the ground, intended for gamers specifically. The RC-5 also has adjustable back positioning which is great. Obviously, people are different heights. So, with the adjustable back, people get to customise their personal features that provide better comfort for them individually. Comfort is essential while gaming for hours at a time.
Some of the Other Features
Along with all of these great features and aspects of the RC-5, it also comes with an audio control panel, a rumble subwoofer for bass and vibration feedback, and of course the epic surround sound system. All of these things together create the ultimate gaming chair, providing the gaming world with another great invention.
The sound quality is superb and lives up to expectations. The surround sound system meets standards and even proceeds itself as the best new chair. For the price, £114.99, it is solid. For this price, customers are receiving a great product, well worth the money. The sound itself can make a gamer desire the chair, but with the added comfort and ease, this product is desired by all. It is a low chair – it is meant to be used in front of a TV, not at a desk or a table. It is a gaming chair and that should be expected. The chair is wired and requires cords which can be messy if you are using multiple devices at once. However, the multiple capabilities it offers is worth the mess and the price. The chair provides the perfect bass sound and rumble for all games. It beats out all other gaming chairs and is meant to aim for a variety of gamers. This is a great gift for your child gamer, or for yourself. Overall, the RC-5 Gaming Chair is rated 3.5 out of 5. The reason it is not a solid 5 is due to its somewhat shaky quality. The material has ripped and the cushions have been unreliable in the past, but that’s not always the case. Typically, people are very happy with the chair when they receive it.
Here is a little video from the guys over at Gioteck that shows them unboxing and setting up this chair.
I conclude with the final thought that this chair is well worth the price and delivers what gamers need in a gaming chair. The price is competitive with the other options, but this chair stands out because of the multi format and the insane quality of the surround sound system. Reviews from other customers agree that the chair is well worth the price. This chair could even double as a speaker at a party when you connect your IPod or MP3 players. This chair is compatible with so many consoles that you could buy it for somebody else, not knowing what they have, and it will be fine. The only thing is, is that there are not instructions on how to connect to your Xbox One. A quick Google will figure that out though. The rumble subwoofer provides a unique experience for the gamer as it sends vibrations throughout your body. The best part of the RC-5 Gaming Chair is the Surround System. It is the reason to purchase the chair compared to all the others – it is what sets the chair apart. It booms from the speakers and makes you believe you are there, in the game.
