Secretlab was founded with the aim of making ergonomic gaming chairs that combine affordability, comfort, and quality construction. With black polyurethane leather and golden logos, the Secretlab Titan is unmistakably a gaming chair, but the design is classy enough that it can blend into a home office.
Comfort is a priority, so there’s generous padding beneath the durable PU leather. This is no ordinary PU leather, though, Secretlab has dubbed it Prime 2.0 PU leather, and promises that it is far more durable than your average gaming chair cover.
The stitched golden logos and carbon fiber style highlights on side panels, along with red stitching, add some style. However, you can customize most of these elements, opting for fabric or real Napa leather, and choosing different color combinations or special editions linked to esports, specific games, or even Houses from Game of Thrones.
A knob on the side of the Secretlab Titan provides adjustable lumbar support, instead of a cushion. The excellent arm rests are fully adjustable, so you can move them not just left, right, up, and down, but also angle them to suit your position. The top of each arm rest is padded and concave, which helps to keep your elbows in the right place. To round off the comfort and support, there’s a velour-covered memory foam pillow with a layer of cooling gel for your neck and head.
The Secretlab Titan can also tilt and fully recline, with a lever to lock it in place, and the pneumatics allow for easy height adjustment. The PU-coated wheels allow for smooth movement across different floors. This is a durable and thoughtfully designed gaming chair and Secretlab offers a five-year warranty.
All these features will be appreciated by gamers, but it’s the $400 price that makes the Secretlab Titan so compelling. Secretlab keeps prices down by selling direct to consumers, and while a fabric finish bumps the price to $430 and real leather makes it $800, these are still very competitive prices for what you get.
We previously reviewed the Secretlab Omega and loved it, but the Titan offers some improvements and is designed to accommodate taller and heavier gamers. Secretlab suggests the Titan is suitable for gamers who are 5’9 to 6’7 and up to 290 pounds. There is also an XL version that goes up to 6’10 and 390 pounds.
The Secretlab Titan garnered very positive reviews from IGN, TechRadar, and PCMag. On the downside, it does require assembly, which takes a while. The padding is also quite stiff compared to some other chairs and it can get warm during long gaming sessions.
Overall, the Secretlab Titan is a worthy champion that strikes the right balance between comfort, style, adjustability, durability, and price. This is the best gaming chair for most people.
Pros: Comfortable, durable, adjustable, 5-year warranty
Cons: The seat and back can get warm, assembly required
