Another recent convert to the Humanscale Freedom.

To be as precise as possible regarding the arms & guitars.

If I am sitting fully back with the arms down a standard guitar body may actually be very close to or touching against the front of the right hand armrest (For a right handed guitarist), but not really enough to be "in the way".

Zero interference at the fretting hand/arm & you can't dink the guitar body as the only bit you might hit is padded.

Last summer I worked at local business incubator.
All furniture there was finnish, from ISKU.

I would like to recommend this chair.

Freedom Chair,

Headrest or Task model?

The Headrest model claims to automatically move out of the way when you aren't sitting back in it and it's shape countours backwards.. Do you think it will affect sound much?

Wal-mart sells a cheap mesh chair that has arms that rotate up flush with the chair back to achieve such an effect but I was wondering if there was something maybe in leather that does the same thing.

Any suggestions?

Here for the gear
I really need to get a good studio chair.
I have looked into all the chairs mentioned in this thread. But they all seem to have the same 'air piston thing' at the base.
I have just replaced the cyclinder in my cheapo office chair because it was wobbling like hell.
Guess what? The replacement wobbles too!! SOOO annoying.
So my question is - do these expensive chairs have the same air cylinders? because if they do then they must all suck too.
Those cylinders are such a crap design It totally amazes me that no-one has come up with a new design in all these years.
I just want a comfy chair that doesn't wobble. WHy the F** do all these chairs wobble (from side to side/front back) . It is so annoying. Does the Humanscale freedom wobble? The Aeron? They both appear to have those same dumb ass little cylinders. Who decided that the best way to make a sold chair was to balance all the load on a tiny little tube? Is it just me or that a totally crap design?
If anyone has experience with these chairs and can say if they wobble or not - please let me know.
Thanks

In my experience the more expensive chairs don't wobble. They also last longer.

I agree with explorer but in my experience someone with TripCode's attitude can find a fault in pretty much anything.

Ok thanks. glad to hear it, I just wonder if they use the same generic gas cylinders or do they make those themselves.
Because the mass-produced ones are all wobbly. they have some kind of design flaw. If the Humanscale freedom uses their own propriety one then i might consider buying one. The thing is - there is no shop anywhere near me - so I need to know before I order one online.
Sorry if i sounded a bit crazy in my first post. It's just very frustrating to drive 2 hours to buy a new cylinder, spend 2 hours fitting it - only to find that the new cylinder wobbles too!.
Do you think if the Humanscale freedom wobbles I can send it back? ;-)

This chair is not a good solution as it has a big and high headrest that will create a lot of problems due to its reflective character. Been there, done that...

Recently bought myself the Pro X series outer State, after reading the specs online. The chair feels relatively comfortable due to my height, weight and body thickness.
Class four Pneumatic lift, which supports up to 150kg.
I rate this chair a three star, from a five star rating, giving an average for my posture and comfortability.

Not doubting its general quality and comfort. Only there are special considerations in a studio setup.

There are many reasons Aeron is so popular in studios. It's an almost perfect chair.
