So you have the Aeron too or u tried the Aeron before?

That "make you lean forward" feeling to me only exist on the Aeron remastered. The Aeron Classic when u sit down, it will auto recline back a bit due to the way the recline/tilt mechanism is on the Aeron classic, which gives a hammock feeling. The Aeron Remastered modified that tilt mechanism so it has more that "make you lean forward" feeling. Previously I had the Classic Aeron and Remastered Aeron side by side.

Yea the Sihoo looks very value for money, i just dont like how the mesh have those waavy design..

No, I don't have the HM Aeron Re-mastered. Wish I have it. Yes, I tried it before. A friend was trying to poison me to get it. So I got to tried it at his place.

Yes, the "hammock feeling", that is the description for most chairs out there. That is the main difference that I felt when I sat on the HM Aeron Re-mastered. It makes my body naturally straight my back.

nono not the mesh.

its the chair angle. after sitting on classic Aeron for awhile, if i change and sit on a remastered Aeron, its as though the same feeling like forward tilt ON for the classic Aeron. Its due to the video i mention lor... if u got see. The remastered tilt mechanism is diff and its angled abit forward by default.

Must sit on them side by side then u will notice the difference.

Ergohuman and Ergotune all MIC? Though Ergohuman is local brand and locally made. Which is more comfortable and good supporting for lumbar?

Aeron's mesh is way better than M57. I sat on it first time without knowing what chair it was back then and I felt like wow this mesh is like out of this world, sit liao very shiok. If budget is a concern get M57, if not Aeron is the way to go
ya but bobian leh. price difference is too much liao. not even double, but like 6-7x price difference. lol o_O

12 year warranty ma.

Anyway when u sit on a chair with good build quality, also let u appreciate the chair more haha..

U go on holiday overseas, maybe spend more than 2k and only last a week or so... and all u left is memories.
You buy a good chair. only 1.5k, last you 12 years.

Why people easily fork out 1 to 2k go on holiday but when comes to a chair, they wanna scrimp and save haha...a chair will be used for hours each day assuming u are working from home.

Things that are constantly use like a mattress, chair, a good phone, laptop, PC... these are worthwhile to spend on.

Influencers are paid to do it.

Recently purchased a HM Aeron Remastered and i really find it alot more enjoyable than my previous fabric chairs in Singapore's weather. The mesh is alot more comfortable than fabric. However, my neck sometimes develop aches when i recline without a headrest.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to where i can purchase a Atlas Headrest for Graphite RM now? Checked Shopee and Carousell but all out of stock.

i know la. but this also tells me that their chairs are marked up to make up for the cost of advertising
definitely. the build quality of ergotune chairs is very plasticky. surely much cheaper ma. they have to earn as well.

Hihi, looking for an ergonomic chair with headrest, can't afford too much, looking around ~400 budget for one. Read through the comments from last few pages, noted that there's the Sihoo M57, also looked on the Benel website and found some not bad looking one (but hard to find review). Or anything that I missed out that y'all can suggest? Thanks!
