Having a headrest on a chair may seem like an extra feature (and in many ways it is), but once it’s there it’s hard to go back to not having one. Headrests are great for resting your head mid-way through a long day’s work at the computer.

However, while some features like height adjustment and lockable positions are fairly common with most office chairs, it’s harder to find office chairs with headrests–which is probably why you are here anyway! In this article, we’ll go over the best office chairs with headrests from best to worst.

#1 Steelcase Leap with Headrest Addon


Starting out is the Steelcase Leap chair which is very expensive, but very worth it. The chair requires an additional headrest add on purchase which is a bummer, but the complete experience is amazing since it’s adjustable for any body type and the chair has the best recline features out of any chair out there.

#2 Ergohuman Chair


Second only to the Steelcase Leap in adjustability, the Ergohuman is not only cheaper but also a bit more adjustable in the back area since it uses two separate parts (lumbar and upper back).

This chair comes with an adjustable headrest already, which is very cool. The Ergohuman is also very good at reclining, and due to it’s cheaper price and automatic headrest inclusion, I would warrant this is the best ergonomic chair with a headrest for the asking price.

#3 HON Endorse With Headrest


Cheaper than the Ergohuman chair, but still reasonably priced for what you get, the HON Endorse has an available headrest option and many comfortable adjustments for a wide range of users. It’s a sleek business-looking chair that is great for people who still want a quality office chair at a price point under $500.

#4 Comfort Products 60-5800T

This chair is probably the most traditional looking executive style chair on the list. It’s also probably the most “plush” and traditionally comfortable.

Coming in at only $193, it’s much cheaper than other options on the list, but I’ve tested this chair before and my friend has it, and after only a year of use he says the cushions are nearly depleted and the chair feels like a rock. However, he admits the headrest is quite nice.


#5 Argomax Mesh Ergonomic Office Chair


The Argomax Mesh Ergonomic Office Chair is one of the best affordable mesh designed office chairs. It has a headrest which is awesome to see, but the super adjustable armrests as well as the unique tilt functionality are what make it really interesting. You can lock the backrest or adjust it by twisting the seat back rotary knob. You can also adjust the seat panel depending on your leg length, and most of the reviewers find that the chairs assembly is incredibly simple.


#6 VIVA Office Chair with Headrest

Moving on down the list we have this VIVA chair. It’s a mesh chair and it does lack adjustments seeing the higher tier chairs, and it doesn’t have the same “plushness” of the 60-5800T chair mentioned previously.

However, this chair is better for hotter weather and if you prefer mesh. The chair actually does have tilt tension which is a nice touch which means you can recline a bit with synchro-tilt. However, a lot of people have found that it’s hard to feel “stable” in the chair and that it doesn’t feel the highest quality.


#7 CMO Chair

Finally, we have the cheapest chair on the list, the CMO 24 hour high-back ergo chair. I’m not sure why it’s called this since you DEFINITELY cannot sit in this chair 24 hours for the cheap price of $157. However, if you’re on a strict budget and NEED a headrest, this is definitely a decent chair since it has adjustable lumbar support, adjustable arms, tilt lock, and height adjustment.
