Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated.

Perhaps you guys are right, worth investing in the HM. I use it at work for 10 years now, it is the best I have to say. Just thought for simple home use, a bit much to spend. Now with WFH becoming a norm, perhaps I should just invest in one.

Any recommendations on where to get it cheaper, than Xtra price? TIA.

Hi bros with Aeron engineer headrest. Question, does your hair easily get stuck in the mesh from time to time?

Do note that the $250 mesh headrest sold in lazada/shopee is an OEM headrest, not the original Engineered Now H3.

The OEM headrest's material is not the same as Herman Miller's mesh, it is extremely stiff and uncomfortable.
The quality feels cheap and definitely not worth $250.

I got mislead by the seller, who said they only sell the best headrest, the H3/H4 but they did not mention that it is an OEM.

The saving grace is that the seller is willing to refund but I still lose $10 worth of shopee coins. =/

Oh and to answer your question based on my experience with the OEM "H3" headrest, no it does not trap your hair.

Thanks would be going for the Atlas instead. Looks broader and the company was founded by ex HM employees so they know what they are doing.

I'm getting an Atlas too, hopefully it does not disappoint.

bought quite a number of second hand ones for the office. it's an amazingly comfortable chair. but you really don't know what kind of abuse some of the chairs have undergone.

can't decide whether to buy from the Shopee outlet or UnwantedImports :/

The one at Shopee is not official distro right? Kinda like PI? I read the reviews that the 12 years warranty is by seller.

So if 1 day the seller MIA, means warranty gone?

Asking for a friend. Thanks.

Very good info man, I was also thinking about it thanks to mate acer. I went on to order from UI for the EN H3 instead. It's $15 cheaper too at $235. +3% fee if you use a CC.

I believe unwanted is also PI? Worst still, he is based in London but doing MO for singaporeans. I think Xtra is the only local official distributor for HM.

12 yrs shld be with HM but who to handle the shipping needs to be discussed with seller i supposed.
