Mavix M5 Gaming Chair with Elemax Review: Upgrade Your Gaming Space with Comfort and Style Listen to this article

Whether gaming or working, what you choose to sit on can greatly affect your performance. Everyone has unique ergonomics and comfort adjustment choices, and the Mavix M5 Gaming Chair addresses all. Add in the Elemax to keep you cool, warm your muscles, and add therapeutic massage, and we are looking at a complete game-changer. The Mavix M5 Gaming Chair arrives in a large box and does require some quick assembly. All of the tools and hardware are included and comes packaged, labeled, and ready to use. I have put together a lot of stuff over the years, and the labeled hardware is a huge advantage. Everything should be packaged this way!

Assembly instructions are provided via video on their website, which is listed in the hardware packet. The video was easy to follow, and the chair took about 10 minutes to finish. While assembling the M5, I noticed how high quality the materials and design are. This thing is heavy and made with considerable materials.

The wheels are so smooth and fit, and the finish is top-notch. The Mavix mesh ensures comfort and breathability. If you are used to assembling big box store chairs, you immediately know the M5 is in a totally different league.

All of Mavix products are designed with the Future-9 Functions of critical ergonomics. I provided the company graphic below that explains the Future-9 Functions. Each of these features combines to create the most comfortable chair I have ever used. Each of my family had the same experience.

It is designed to have enough adjustments that it can form for just about anybody. The armrests even adjust in and out to match any gamer’s best positioning.

As stated above, the quality of this chair is second to none. It is super heavy and stable, which helps the comfort level.

The design is impressive in looks as well as ergonomics. Every detail is well thought out. All screws are not visible, and adjustment points are easily accessed and are heavy-duty.

When purchasing a chair from Mavix, there is a$130 optional feature called Elemax. This insert is designed to regulate body temperature, increase blood flow, and heightens productivity and focus. The battery-powered addition provides two massage speeds and modes and will adjust temperatures to get warmer or cooler.

Installing the Elemax is super easy; it slides into the back of the Dynamic Variable Lumbar support and includes a backplate to hold it into place. The battery takes four to five hours to charge, and the Elemax can be used while plugged in.

While using the battery, you can expect twenty 15-minute cycles of massage only, seven 15-minute cycles of heating or cooling with massage, and seven cycles of using heating or cooling only. The Elemax adds a great comfort level to an already amazing chair.

If you are a serious gamer or anyone who sits in a chair for long periods of time, the Mavix M5 Gaming Chair with Elemax is a complete game-changer. The chair is designed to address ergonomics while being stylish and made with high-quality materials. I have never used a high-quality gaming chair, and I am not sure I can use a usual office chair ever again.

From my head to my legs, it feels like the Mavix M5 Gaming Chair forms to my needs and has endless adjustments to fit me perfectly. The Elemax heating, cooling, and massage technology take an already fantastic product to the next level. I feel like a king sitting in my M5, having my lower back massaged and muscles warmed to avoid fatigue. If you order a chair, spring for the Elemax feature, and thank me later!

The Mavix M5 Gaming Chair starts at $555.55, and as tested, it retails for $685.55; it is available directly from the manufacturer.
