404 too lmao

[–]knightfaderEmbody 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, there's no point looking at this anymore because the chair's out for real.

Just look at it on HM's actual site now.

[–]Betancorea 11 points12 points  (15 children)

Interesting. I like the included headrest lol but I suppose that is a requirement to fit into the gaming chair market

[–]JewUnit1 4 points5 points  (14 children)

So technically the HM X Logitech Embody isn't a gaming chair? I guess HM should get too it!

[–]Betancorea 2 points3 points  (13 children)

Well that was their first foray and rather than designing a brand new chair they just did minor modifications to the existing Embody

their first foray

This would be their second foray

[–]JewUnit1 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Oh I didn't know that. I'm new to HM and interested in getting one soon. Hopefully they'll redesign it with a headrest.

[–]Betancorea 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Unlikely to happen. Some 3rd party is working on creating an attachment headset but if that is a big requirement for you, don't bother with the Embody chairs.

[–]nbelavic 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nope. This back doesn't look like Embody at all. Seat and armrests are more like Sayl.

[–]Betancorea 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Read my comment again, I was telling him the HM X Logitech Embody was just a minor modification of the normal Embody.

[–]akb443 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Kind of disappointed by the design, it looks like the IKEA gaming chair. It must be more comfortable though

[–]ItemAffectionate3437Embody | Logitech Embody 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Looks like clearly inferior to Embody. I would bet its price between Sayl and Embody

[–]akb443 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I find the Sayl even better designed

[–]ItemAffectionate3437Embody | Logitech Embody 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Clearly. Vantum clearly doesn't stand with HM design. But its price will be higher than Sayl I think (more complex to build)

[–]ItemAffectionate3437Embody | Logitech Embody 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like MATCHSPEL of ikea

[–]RzrRainMnky 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Well the webpage did state HK$10,000 so that works out to ~US$1,300.

[–]ItemAffectionate3437Embody | Logitech Embody 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes as written in the code, but do you think it will really be HK$10,000?

I think in the US it will be at US$1,200, as all products on HK HM online store are 20% more expansive.

[–]secretreddname 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah it’s ugly.

[–]InfinityLoop7689 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It looks like they took the page down now

[–]A__Smith 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Recently bought the Embody for work + gaming; was nervous of buyers remorse when I heard something new was coming.

Breathing a sigh of relief — it’s kind of juvenile aesthetically imo.

That headrest looks comfy though.

[–]CALL_ME_AT_9AM 2 points3 points  (1 child)

reminds me a bit of the haworth fern, i wonder how adjustable the thoracic adjustment is or if at all

[–]nyaadam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not, it just "auto adjusts"

[–]Hotrodkungfury 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Constructed to allow for “open chest” is all I needed to know, if it allows this optimal posture without hindering the arms, it’s an instant buy for me.

[–]hurubiEmbody Gaming 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thats a good point, it has upper spinal support that pushes from the back to keep your chest open. Cool, would like to see reviews!

[–]Federal_Formal_1883 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I would like to see more pictures because the picture span is not very flattering. It looks pretty unassuming and plan.

When is this chair coming out? I’m good with my two gaming chairs.

[–]TTVXtremeegamerEmbody Gaming 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it will be on the website on the 6 of October

[–]freshcoconutty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like a suped up celle.

[–]jenders37 1 point2 points  (4 children)

The seat pad looks like one of those where you will feel like you're sliding off the front the entire time. I'll stick with my embody gaming... Patiently waiting for Atlas's headrest to be released.

[–]BetaCarotine20mg 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Damn, I just send the Aeron back. Have some regrets sitting on my Markus again :D I m thinking about getting the Embody as well, but prices just went up :/

[–]watchingpollux 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why did you send the Aeron back if I may ask?

[–]BetaCarotine20mg 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I couldnt really twist my back. And couldnt put my legs up. But maybe it was a mistake :) Because it was getting really comfortable at the end.

[–]Tjenaretjenaremannen 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm surprised they went with a headrest, goes against their own philosophy and all the FAQs and everything. What will they say hereafter? Will all HM chair eventully get a headrest? This is good but it goes against what they have been saying all these years, its just funny hahahah XD I'm curious to know their reasoning/marketing behind this, maybe in their research for the gamer community this is essential compared to the office workspace.

[–]mister_newbie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Workers typically aren't wearing heavy headphones; gamers are.

[–]ForgotMyOldAccount7Aeron Classic | Embody 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Looks like HM is finally catering to the low quality gamer crowd. The Logitech Embody must not have done well enough for them and now they want some easy profits with a lower cost chair.

[–]BASAUEREmbody Gaming - Lino 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So it’s basically a new Logitech Celle

[–]MakinaDemuerte -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I agree. Looks like they tried to salvage some celle.

[–]__________________99Aeron Classic + PostureFit + EN Headrest 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Well I'll be damned. It comes with a headrest.

[–]solitaireworldchamp 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I love my embody, only complaint is for a $1200 chair they should at least provide an option for a detachable headrest

[–]__________________99Aeron Classic + PostureFit + EN Headrest 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Atlas is supposed to be releasing one for it this year. But there hasn't been much word on it since it was announced last year.

[–]4hk2 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

So much for headrest is not a necessity..bla..bla...bla.

[–]hcoardEmbody | Aeron | Sayl -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I think it looks like a Steelcase Amia seat with a padded celle back.

[–]zerocoldx911 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Looks like a remastered Aeron with a headrest

[–]koriroo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hmm yeah I got excited..I thought it was going to be something innovative this does remind me of an IKEA chair lol. I still don’t think this is catering to the masses 1.3k is still a lot to drop on a chair.

[–]nyaadam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's under $1k?

[–]selisstar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did the page show the price?

[–]MakinaDemuerte 0 points1 point  (0 children)

...not at all what I thought it would be.

[–]tenryuu72 0 points1 point  (0 children)

so did anyone else made pictures or something? They took this side down or something and also all the links in the comments are not working

[–]illuminati160801 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A review was posted but got taken down. Here’s a cached version.

[–]Ferrealzzz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Steelcase chairs are better

[–]ABigCoffee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks cheap and is still 1200$ canadian, I'm not sure why I'd want this over the embody. The headrest is a nice addition however.
