DXRacer chairs are great. They have amazing high backed backrests, comfortable yet firm seats, and stylish leather materials. They also have good recline, and a variety of sizes to fit every user from someone as large as the hulk, to someone as small as a hobbit (well admittedly, a tall one around 5’5 or so).
I’ve reviewed chairs like the DXRacer Sentinel myself, and I’ve found a lot of things about the chairs that I like. The chairs really do feel like Racing car seats due to the straight backed and firm cushion with stylish racing wings. However, one thing I’ve noticed that I don’t like about the chairs is that the arm rests feel a bit cheap.
Since the chairs are only $400-500 (I know, this seems pricey for a lot of people) you can’t expect THAT great of arms. Most chairs under this price, or around this price, like HON chairs or cheaper chairs, have similar armrests. Most armrests are just plastic and a bit uncomfortable, without too much adjustments. DXRacer chairs have some adjustments in the arms, but they aren’t really comfortable for long use. The shape and design is OK, but they aren’t cushioned.
However, this isn’t too much of an issue with a simple modification addon.
How to Fix DXRacer Arm Rests to be more Comfortable
The secret way to make your DXRacer armrests more comfortable is to purchase some memory foam add ons for your armrests.
There are plenty of options on Amazon from more expensive options around $40, to even some within the $10-15 range. You can also use these armrests on other chairs. Here are some that I’ve found that are quite good.
If you want to make your DXRacer armrests SUPER comfortable, then consider the Ergo360 armrest pad covers. These covers are made with high density foam with great cushinoning. It’ll alleviate elbow pain and distribute weight across your forearms. The dimensions are 7″ to 11″ in length and up to 4″ wide.
Similar to the last armrest covers, these ones use memory foam to increase your comfort. The armrests are soft with a snug fit that fits most arms from 6 to 11 inches.
If you don’t have $30-40 dollars to spend on armrest cushions, but still want a better experience than your normal DXRacer armrests, consider the Ziraki memory foam covers. These are mainly just foam but the foam is durable and should last you awhile. You can even clean the cover since the zippers are easy to access.
