Herman miller - aeron

This one at least 1.6k. But super gd quality chair. I got a used one, even that cost me 550
Yup very nice chair. Itís the remastered version with better back support, and a brighter silver color. Only bad point is no headrest, ordered a 3rd party headrest see how.

After some consideration, did a mini Marie Kondo I gave up my studio monitors for this. Using it as PC speaker is pretty challenging as it only support arc and optical input.

You can use a hdmi to optical splitter, what Iím using for my Sonos home entertainment combo. But yeah, but then you get back the wires.

i almost wanted to buy this remastered model (black), but I just couldnt bare to spend that amount for a chair I have not tried before at that point of time. Hence I went for a used one, to try it first.

Hell, my next replace will be a remastered aeron. hahaha, but understand fr many reviewers, HM chairs can last damn long. My used chair was more than 10yo, still very gd. I also got the 3rd party headrest.
