GT Omega or DXracer - Which brand you should buy?

Gaming is no more only a hobby and an everyday activity for teenagers. Over the past few decades, many people have taken up gaming professionally and invested good time in this art form. Of course, gaming is still a popular past-time activity on the weekend. 

However, there is one thing common between professional and casual gamers – they both need a decent setup to play well, the perfect gaming chair. Though it may seem unnecessary, imagine sitting on a chair with zero back support for three hours (or more) at a stretch. Your back will give away, and you won’t be able to enjoy the game anyway. 

Before you even begin to get down to your gaming marathon, spend a bit of time on this article to know about the two top players and then make your pick.

Comparison – DXracer vs GT Omega

DXRacer

This company has been operative since 2001 and has gained a great deal of popularity. Interestingly, the company started as a car seat manufacturer for luxury vehicles, but they soon changed course and became one of the gaming industry pioneers. 

Ace products

The gaming chairs manufactured by this brand are incredibly sought-after. These sport some fantastic designs and features. Overall, their products are very futuristic, and both young and seasoned players are sure to fall for them. However, some might find the DXRacer chairs a bit zazzy, especially those who like minimalistic designs. 

Comfort-wise DXRacer chairs provide excellent ergonomic support, which solves the purpose of buying a gaming chair in the first place. You only need to find a style that suits your aesthetics. 

Chair capacity

Often, tall and well-built gamers face extreme challenges in finding a comfortable chair that supports their weight. Even though there are many brands in the market, not all are ideal for such well-built players. 

Winner: However, DXRacer steals the show in that case. Most chairs from this brand can support an average weight of 450 lbs and a height of 6′ 7″. 

A more prominent presence in the gaming society:

DXRacer chairs have been in the market for quite some time. Indeed you have seen your favorite gamer streaming a live session from one of the DXRacer chairs. In fact, eSport teams like Cloud9 and the popular streamer DrDisrespect use DXRacer chairs.

Durability

Many long-term users claim their chairs have remained as good as new even though they spend four to five hours on them a week over the years. 

Even after three years of roughhousing, there are no rips, tears, or scratches on the fabric, and the color remains as good as new! Even if you have pets at home who might jump onto your chair for attention, you need not worry. The fabric used in DXRacer chairs is extremely strong. Overall, premium quality materials ensure a long shelf life of the chairs from this brand. 

Adjustment and flexibility

The DXRacer chairs feature a tilt mechanism that can go down to 130 degrees (GT Omega wins this feature). The recline feature is crucial for all gaming chairs as it reduces the tension on the discs in the lower back.

The backrest has the same firm cushioning as the bucket-type seats. The only drawback is that DXRacer chairs do not provide lumbar support; instead, they feature a pillow. Though the pillow is a “one size fits all” deal, it is not ideal since body types vary. 

Price range

DXRacer Chairs have a pretty high price range. While you can get a heavily feature-loaded premium quality chair for $300 from any other brand in the market, the starting price of the DXRacer chair is $270. Thus the brand loses many customers who cannot experience the same comfort for the super high price range. 

GT Omega

Of the two brands we are comparing, GT Omega is relatively new; however, since its inception in 2009, the company has made quite a name for itself. 

GT Omega has always aimed to provide gamers with the ideal home setup in an affordable price range. Over the years, this has become a major USP of the brand, along with a couple of others. GT Omega has both gaming and simulation chairs in addition to a wide array of other accessories that complete the eSports scene. 

Premium products

One of the first things you will observe about GT chairs is their professional looks and design. Another interesting thing is most of the brand’s chair is black. That is pretty cool, going by the fact that gamers adore this color and its low maintenance. 

Besides this constant design principle, most chairs have a racing wheel design and jet color finish. However, all the products look extremely modern despite their constant color scheme. In other words, the products are a good combination of minimalism and noir, and that is one of the primary reasons for their popularity. 

Apart from chairs, GT Omega also manufactures excellent cockpits. These are highly durable and have the company’s patented minimalistic design and color scheme. For a gamer heavily invested in their art, a chair and cockpit combination works out exceptionally well. However, most cannot afford both for their significantly high price.

Chair capacity

GT Omega chairs are known for their overall comfort and capacity; in fact, gamers realize this as soon as they rest on these chairs. If you are a leaner, you will enjoy GT Omega chairs as they lean about 160 degrees. The base cushion on most chairs is squishy and offers the perfect support for long hours. 

Like DXRacer chairs, GT Omega chairs can withstand weight up to 400lbs; thus, these chairs are ideal for robust players.

Durability

If you are opting for GT Omega gaming chairs, durability is not something you should worry about. All the chairs by this brand are extremely strong made out of premium quality material. That is indeed surprising keeping in mind the range of the products (which we will come to later).

One of GT Omega chairs’ best features is that you can lean back on them and lock them in that place. Though this sounds like a typical deal, the locking mechanism requires precision and puts enormous pressure on the chair’s base. To that end, it must be made from premium quality materials. The leather used in the making is long-lasting, the springs are gas-powered, and the base, of course, features heavy-duty materials. 

Another trait that sets this chair apart from its competitors is the gas piston. The hydraulic piston can withstand a weight of up to 400lbs.

Adjustment and flexibility

GT Omega provides a broader tilt mechanism from 85 to 160 degrees which is very relaxing for gamers who tend to spend their entire weekend near their console. Besides tilt positioning, GT Omega allows gamers to adjust the height of their chairs. They can choose to sit lower or higher than others, and for a chair, that’s a lot of liberty! Thanks to its gas-powered cylinder, you can raise or lower the seat’s height.

Like DXRacer chairs, GT Omega chairs do not feature additional lumbar support apart from a headrest and lumbar pillow.

Price

Talking about the price range, GT Omega does provide an exquisite home setup at an affordable price range. However, it must be remembered that these are luxury products. To that end, you will have to shed some bills before you can finally settle down to enjoy your game.

However, compared to other brands on the market, GT Omega does give you some wiggle room and mostly sticks to the affordable side of things. For the Pro gaming series, you are safe if your budget is about $220 or more. However, if you are considering buying accessories along with it as well, your budget is sure to go north by $400 or more. 

Which brand steals the show?

Both the brands have their pros and pitfalls. While DXRacer is widely popular in the gaming community offering excellent design and features, it is pretty pricy. 

On the other side, we have GT Omega, new in the market, offering excellent comfort and durability at an affordable price point. The choice between the two has a lot to do with your requirement. However, for a young gamer just starting to explore the world of gaming, GT Omega works better for its cool designs and fair price range. 

But if you have been saving for that perfect chair and want something colorful and zazzy, DXRacer is your pick!

Therefore you should only choose what best works out for you and let the game begin.
