The Ewin Calling Series Gaming Chair is as sleek as they come

null

One of the most confusing parts of buying a gaming chair is sifting through all the different technical specifications, types, colors, and intricacies that makeup the market. There are so many options to choose from and they can all blend together and make the variety feel intimidating.

It’s important to choose the right chair, almost as important as the hardware choices when you build a new PC or the customizations you have for your character in Skyrim. This gaming chair will be a second home and you should be certain this one can support your body and play style.

A great option to go with in many cases is the Ewin Racing chair, we’ve been testing the EWin Calling Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Office Chair and it’s as sleek as they come.

From stylish and comfortable curves that fit to your side to sturdy and reliable armrests that have wide bases for relaxation, the Calling series is a step up from many other chairs including some of Ewin’s other products.

Feel & Fit

The Calling Series, specifically the CLE sku, reigns in some of the features found in the Flash series. It has the same 3D armrests that can adjust up-down, left-right, and forward-back but the movements are far smoother when finding the right place for your elbows. It’s base also also a smoother transition from the edges of the seat to where you sit. The simpler take on the Flash series features actually make the Calling series chair a bit more reliable in terms of subtle adjustments and overall comfort.

It ca depend on what you prefer, but the simple armrests on the Calling series were a welcome change for us after spending several weeks with the flash series. They are stable, firm, and a bit more stylish since they don’t have multiple buttons and switches on several sides. They slide up and down smoothly and have a good range for different heights and postures, and the horizontal movements are done by a simple push.

The Calling Series is similar to the Flash series in many ways The pillows, backrest, height, and backrest angles all feel familiar. They can both sustain a good amount of pressure on the back, just be careful about sudden and heavy movements to one side. The combination wheels and weight of the chair can lead to a fall, although it’s a small concern.

The backrest is straighter, firmer, and more collaborative with the two pillows on the CLE sku as well. It feels like it was meant to work in tandem with the pillows rather than be two different options for use, one with pillows and one without. It made sitting up straight easier and more comfortable.

The biggest test for us is whether or not we can sit back in an odd an exhaustion-caused posture after a long days work and still be comfortable. The result from that test were nothing but positive, even if we try to have the best posture we can most days.

Style & Satisfaction

Most chairs sport that same look with a tall back base, two holes in the backrest for air, two pillows for lower and upper back support, and then a wide base with wings on each side that support leaning to one side or the other. It’s also common for chairs to be two dominant colors, usually something cheery like blue, red, or green alongside a black or white outline.

The Calling Series has most of this with a beautiful splash of white in a few spots on the chair, it makes it stand out among the common two tone nature of other chairs. That flair combined with the usual race car like design of the chair makes it a great addition to any man cave, office, or game room.

We even did a lot of work while setup in our smooth seats our only piece of advice would be to make sure the chair that you get matches your height and weight measurements since armrests on a chair one size to big might hit the edges of your desk instead of slide under them and your feet may be stunted if the chair is too small.

Luckily that’s not an issue since Ewin has multiple options on their site about the size of your chair and we didn’t run into that issue when using the chairs designed to our specific requirements.

We with played various genres and platforms to see how the chair performed in different environments It was easy to cuddle up on the chair and dive into a long session of Octopath Traveler and comfortable enough to spend 30 minutes looting in Fortnite only to be killed by a sniper we didn’t even see (we were comfy enough to just jump back in to try for redemption).

All of those playthroughs were fun and relaxing, better than any couch, bean bag chair, futon, and most other gaming chairs we’ve played with. If you’re looking for a trustworthy options don’t hesitate to go with the Ewin Calling Series of gaming chairs.

The EwinRacing Flash series has everything you need in a gaming chair

A lot of players, especially ones who spend a big part of their day in front of a computer, don’t consider how little support a typical office chair has for the body. If you’re starting to feel a little ache after a long day looking at a screen hunched over in a swivel seat, it might be time to consider an upgrade

Luckily, there are all sorts of options for all sorts of body sizes and shapes, including one of the best– the EWin Racing Flash-XL Series Gaming Chair. It’s a fantastic chair with a large base, high back rest, and an assortment of adjustable features that make it as amiable as it is sturdy. It’s great for streamers, competitors, and casual players alike.

The chair, as the series name would suggest, is meant for larger users with extra space between armrests and taller-than-usual height adjustments that reach 13.4 inches off the ground. And even while it’s perfect for wider reaching players it can suit people of all sizes who want a bit of extra room, just make sure your desk is primed for an upgraded chair.

If your moving from a typical desk chair to this gaming chair the change will feel abrupt, but you’ll settle in quickly after a simple setup process with clear image-clad instruction manual. The number of versatile features including adjustable 4D armrests, 360-degree swivel, 155-degree adjustable backrest, and adjustable base height. The backrest can be layed back to enjoy a more casual experience like Firewatch while it can push your posture up for more focused, action-packed shooters like Overwatch.

It also comes with a support neck pillow and lumbar backrest, one for your lower back and one for your neck with removable straps in case you need extra support in either area. That brings up the question of the EWin Racing Flash-XL Series Gaming Chair’s overall comfortability. The answer is clear here, this chair may actually help with poor posture due to how good it feels to sit upright in, especially after aligning the backrest, height, and armrests to suit specific height and weight measurements.

The most noticeable of those features are the ‘4D’ armrests, something that isn’t as common in gaming chairs that we’ve seen before. Armrests are a constant point of frustration in a lot of chairs since they can often only move up and down, this chair allows the armrests position, angle, and height to be moved to suit the users preferences. The switches to change the position of the armrests are located on different sides of the rests and can be somewhat easy to accidentally hit but are altogether convenient.

After using the chair for a week it would be hard to recall a more comfortable gaming experience, perfect for long hours in Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a quick session in Monster Hunter World, or anything in between.

The lumbar backrest is perfect for anyone who has lower back issues and side cushions on the chair give additional support. The chair is so versatile you’ll want to use it for most things like working through your email or having dinner. Although you won’t want to spill and mashed potatoes on this chair, it’s got too much style.

The seat is conveniently cloaked in high quality leather, with memory foam underneath it cushioning the divide between you and the strong metal frame. Now while most chairs with this much versatility may look bulky and while this gaming chair is obviously on the larger side, the combination of slick black and sharp red make it look like the prized possession of a successful streamer.

E-WIN HERO SERIES GAMING CHAIR REVIEW

Introduction

The market for high end gaming peripherals has been booming for several years now. The trend started with mechanical keyboards which provide both tactile feedback and a variety of switch types to suit different preferences. Gamers quickly grew accustomed to expecting more from their peripherals. This trend soon spread to other peripherals including mice, webcams, headsets, and even standalone mics. Even high-end monitors that offer lower latency and higher refresh rates are now common among the PC elite. While all of these peripherals stand to improve a user’s experience, gamers often neglect the one item right under their nose: their chair. A high-end gaming chair is designed with long sitting sessions in mind and stands to improve both user’s comfort and posture.

Awareness of gaming chairs has been growing, but there’s still a far higher hesitation factor involved with ordering a gaming chair than there is with other high-end purchases. High costs play a part, but the bulky nature of the product also plays a significant role. For years, the size, shipping, and assembly requirements kept me from ordering a gaming chair. The anxiety of ordering a chair without first sitting on it was also a factor. Fortunately, the folks at E-Win made the decision for me by offering one of their premium Hero Series chairs for me to test out. After using extensively for the past month, I thought I’d share my thoughts.

What’s in the Box

The EWinRacing Hero Series gaming chair comes disassembled in a hefty box, but assembly only takes 10-20 minutes. Despite its size, I found it far easier to assemble than the IKEA chair I was previously using. A clearly worded color manual makes following along during the assembly process effortless. The adjustable armrests even come pre installed on the sides of the seat. The only step that could benefit from a second pair of hands is joining the backrest with the seat portion. E-Win chairs have sturdy steel frames which makes them heftier than generic office chairs. If you’re assembling the chair alone, it may help to place the seat piece on an elevated surface like a table before joining it with the backrest. E-Win has a convenient installation guide available on YouTube which you can reference.

Adjustable Comfort

Once assembled, it become clear that the E-Win Hero series chair has a multitude of adjustment options. The pre-installed armrests can be adjusted in height which helps since I prefer them to be low enough to slide under my desk. They can also be removed entirely for those who prefer not to use armrests. The backrest can adjusted back with the help of a lever on the right of the seat. A height adjustment lever is located on the bottom right of the seat as well. Most importantly, the included head support and lower back/lumbar support cushion can be adjusted or removed entirely. The E-Win seatback is very firm, but the two cushions balance this out perfectly. Their value is especially apparent when you lean the backseat back a bit. The firm build of the chair keeps your posture healthy while the cushions offer support for the two contact points along the back of your body. When trying to find the ideal setup for yourself, I suggest moving the cushions around a bit, it took me several adjustments to get it perfectly aligned for my height and body shape.

Memory Foam For Your Butt

The seat itself is perhaps the largest improvement over standard office chairs. My E-Win Hero Series chair came just in time for the launch of the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Battle For Azeroth and I have been sitting still playing for up to 12 hours a day. My old chair required me to make several uncomfortable adjustments to give my sore butt a rest. This often twisted my back into strange poses which I would hold for minutes at a time. Now I don’t even think about my butt while sitting. The thick memory foam seat feels like a cloud, especially after your body heat warms it up a bit.

Aesthetics

My biggest reservation when it came to gaming chairs was their aesthetic. Often streamers are seen with these chairs and they can look a bit glaring, especially in an otherwise normal bedroom or living room. If you share these concerns, know that E-Win also has an all-black chair option in their ‘Champion Series’ line. But from my experience, the blue Hero Series model I received looks much better than I thought it would. The most colorful part, the backrest, is always facing the desk and so the chair’s overall presence in a room is by no means overpowering.

Overall

Priced at $359 with free shipping, the E-Win Hero series may seem expensive, but the difference in quality over standard office chairs is substantial. For value per dollar, the chair is a bargain. The metal frame and dense foam seat look like they can last a lifetime. And just as with mechanical keyboards, once you’ve used a proper chair, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t make the switch sooner. But with all that said, there are caveats. As I said earlier, the E-Win chair is quite firm. Those who realize the value of good posture will appreciate this, but some may find the firmness to be uncomfortable. The ergonomics of the chair force a healthy posture. Sitting cross legged, for example, is difficult due to the curves on the seat. Again, this can largely be seen as a positive, but is worth mentioning for full disclosure. Overall, the E-Win Hero Series receives top marks and comes highly recommended.

EWIN Flash XL Series Ergonomic Gaming Chair REVIEW

Don’t settle for subpar seating 

As someone who sits at an office desk all day long and sometimes night long, I know the importance of using a good chair. Sitting in subpar chairs can really tear your back up once you pull yourself away from your game or work. With that said, about two months ago, I started having some terrible problems with my back. I’m still not sure why there was a sudden onset of problems but suddenly – there it was — a horrible tightness in the middle of my back. It seemed as though no matter how I sat or moved around, I couldn’t get comfortable.

A few years ago, I had invested in an ergonomic chair that I thought might last me for many years to come. As it turns out, the chair was exacerbating the back problem I now have. I’m not sure that it was the cause, but it wasn’t helping. That’s when I started looking into a new office solution for my aching back. I decided that looking closely at the gaming chair options that are available would be a good plan since they are made for long-term use. That’s when I found the Flash XL Gaming Chair from EWIN and I fell in love.

The cushioning is made from cold molding foam (high-density memory foam). With it being an ‘XL’ size chair, it can support up to 330 pounds from its users. When you sit in it you feel the difference, between the high-quality foam and lesser quality chair stuffing.

The Flash XL Gaming Chair has a lot of adjustments available that make it possible for you to have the just right feeling for your needs.

4D Adjustable Armrests

  • Surface covered with polyurethane for durability and comfort
  • Front/Back/Left/Right sliding functions

User Experience

When I first received my chair I was bouncing off the wall to get it set up.  The chair arrived in a very large box with the pieces of the chair individually wrapped up and packaged carefully so as not to damage them. There were major pieces of the chair pre-assembled, but the back and seat needed to be attached and then mounted to the wheeled base. All in all, assembly only took about 30 minutes. You are provided all the necessary tools for assembly and it comes together quite easily. I was a little concerned when I found a tear in the side of the back, but as it turns out, that was an opening for a structural screw to go into from the side bracket.

Once the chair is assembled, it’s ready to use. There are no complicated instructions or special needs for the chair operation. You have the option to recline or move the armrests around as you like – they are fully articulating. The seat cushion is firm but very comfortable. The pillows are supportive and make a real difference if you are sitting for long periods of time. I have been very impressed by the wheels. I know that sounds a little odd given the fact that it’s a gaming chair, but usually, the first things that break on me are the wheels of a chair. They are large, wide and roll around effortlessly on the carpet.

I was met with a bit of a disappointment after getting my chair assembled due to one of the arms weld snapping off. The arm had basically fallen off. This was a big let down but as is the case with any product, you will find that not everything will be perfect. I reached out to EWIN support and they apologized for the unfortunate defect in the arm weld and offered to send out a brand new arm. They promptly sent a replacement and three days later, I had a new arm in-hand and my chair was as good as new.

The XL size chair is made for taller people and can hold more weight than the average gaming chair. The chair has a variety of adjustments that can suit even the pickiest person – like me. The included pillows lumbar and head you would think that they might be a gimmick but I assure you they are not. I use these pillows to adjust myself in so many ways.

Conclusion

I have had the opportunity to check out lots of cool chairs and gaming chairs over the years and the EWin Flash XL is just wonderful. I really enjoy the rocking ability that it has and have felt like I’ve been pretty much floating on clouds when using it. For anyone sitting long hours behind a desk no matter if you are gaming or doing office work, the EWin Flash XL will be a match made in heaven. Since I’ve had this chair, I’ve been able to sit comfortably for hours at a time and I’ve even noticed that my back problems are not as severe as there were before I started using this chair. It’s well-constructed, comfortable and it looks great!
