How they compare to each other

 

When it comes to quality, DXRacer has a slight edge. However, Respawn is not far behind. On a DXRacer, some details like better-looking base or wheels are accounted for. For some, those parts are not really that important since there no additional value, besides visually, to the chair. When it comes to comfort, both are fairly similar. Respawn offers some extra options like padded armrests or integrated leg rest that DXRacer doesn't have. 

DXRacer does come with a longer warranty on the frame (lifetime) compared to 2-year on Respawn products. In the 7 years we've been in business, we rarely saw a frame break since it's made of steel (on both Respawn and DXRacer). Both brands have the same warranty on parts: 2 years

Respawn also has a model with a breathable mesh backseat. This is something that is unfortunately not available on all gaming chair brands. It's great for people who prefer a breathable backseat to avoid sweating too much or simply prefer the comfort. 

When it comes to comfort, DXRacer uses a seat with a higher density than Respawn. It means that the DXRacer seat may feel harder than Respawn's. It's not a good or bad thing, it truly depends on your preference. Some prefer the seat to be harder to avoid "sinking" into the seat when working, while others prefer a softer seat. Although it's hard to describe over text, the softer Respawn seat is comparable to your standard office chairs. Thus, if you're used to office chairs and like how they feel when they're brand new (before the foam loses its shape), then you're likely to enjoy Respawn gaming chairs. If you prefer a harder seat, which is perfect for people sitting for +8h per day, then DXRacer is a great option.

Which one should I get, DXRacer or Respawn?

 

If you're looking for a gaming chair without all the bells and whistles, Respawn is a great option. You'll be paying for exactly what you need: Comfort and quality. You'll also be paying a cheaper price than most renowned brands. It's one of the reasons it's one of the most sold gaming chair brands on Amazon.

If you're looking for a unique style and design, you're more likely going to find something you like in the DXRacer catalog. Although the price may be slightly higher than the other brands, you'll have a higher selection of designs and colors to choose from. Plus, their line up is often updated and new models and designs are added on a regular basis.
