It's meant to be that way. The Aeron is a chair that won't make one uncomfortable when sitting for hours on a stretch for focused tasking. Where else the Embody has more support and foam comfort. I tried the Embody at Xtra, the build quality and armrests leave a lot to be desired imo for the premium it commands over the Aeron.I believe embody definitely more comfy than aeron. It's a chair where u can really sit comfy, stretch your back, sit cross leg etc.
I chose the aeron firstly because of mesh. I had couple of non mesh chairs... comfy but due to my work area being partition out by tempered glass, it gets humid, so anything apart from mesh, gets warm quickly. So that's why I resort to choosing Aeron.
I do know there are other brands that have mesh..but I guess I am the kind that prefer stuff that is hyped and with good build quality. I didnt like plasticky build that's why went for Herman miller instead.
These are my comments comparing between the chairs I have (RM Aeron, Celle, Leap V2, Leap V1, Leap V1-H):
Best for lower back support + rocking tilt + sitting in aircon/non-aircon: Aeron
Best for upper back support + forward tilt sitting position: Celle
Best seat cushions: Leap V1/V1-H
Best armrests + for sitting cross-legged + back responsiveness: Leap V2
