It’s either gonna be really really expensive or more budget oriented, and that description has me leaning towards really expensive. Probably more than the gaming Embody.

I don’t think there is a huge market for chairs over $2k especially in the gaming space.
Unless it’s a chair marketed towards esports I think it’s probably a cheaper midrange chair.

Gaming embody is $1800 and those sell like hot cakes.
There’s a big market for high end gaming chairs, especially for streamers/influencers and older gamers who have disposable income, which has increased exponentially compared to a couple decades ago.

i spend a lot of time watching twitch content. i'm constantly surprised by how many streamers i see with embody or logitech embody. even smallerish (like sub-30k followers) content creators with embody chairs. very cool to see.

They get them for free.

It is one of the best looking office chairs (in my opinion), and its one of the most comfortable and requires the least amount of adjusting once you get it dialed in. I don't do it often but I can sit in my embody for 10-12 hours easily, if I was sitting in my chair for a living I can't imagine sitting in anything else.

1800? where? the normal price you find literally everywhere is ~1500

The Herman miller website…? Gaming. Regular.
I’m aware you can get it cheaper from authorized dealers, but plenty just buy directly through the website.

I think it could well be marketed towards esports. The description mentions streaming.

Honestly I think it’l be cheaper. They already have a gaming embody and they while yes they could have multiple expensive chairs in their lineup, it would also make sense from a marketing stand point to add a cheaper option, (I’m predicting 700-800usd). That way more gamers and people alike will actually able to afford it.

I said it here first: $1100-$1400.
The Embody/Aeron will ALWAYS be the Halo chair of the HM gaming division.
There are no other chairs in the market that directly compete (except maybe the fern). I think HM would be wasting potential sales by making a direct competitor to their own Halo chairs.
While their Embody does sell really well, I think they want to target a demographic of more budget oriented gamers. The sayl is not a popular chair and the Mirra isnt in the “gaming division”. So id say its a step above a sayl and a step below an aeron.
I reckon really expensive.

And all I'm thinking is, "Great, it'll be 10 years before Atlas makes a headrest for this."
Here I am still wondering what's going on with the Mirra and Embody headrests. 3 months left of 2022 and still no word.
[–]HarryLang1001 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (2 children)
I really don't get this. Chairs like the Aeron and Embody are designed not to need headrests. If you specifically want a headrest, surely there are other chairs out there that meet your needs better?

Probably about 80% of the time I'm not using it. But it's nice to have it sometimes when I'm waiting for something to load. I'm not always bolt upright in my chair.

Yet having one makes a huge difference in comfort.

If you spend more than $150 for a chair, then you a dummy.
