has announced new “sound rockers” — a new line of chairs designed for video game enthusiasts that work regardless of platform — console, Mac or PC. The new PM440, S2000 and S1000 are on display at this week’s E3 in Los Angeles, Calif.
Designed to be used on the floor, the chairs feature a convex bottom that rocks gently back and forth, and each sports built-in speakers to help immerse you in the on-screen action. The chairs feature side-mounted rotary bass, volume and input selector controls, along with an RCA stereo input, RCA output and headphone jack. The chairs also fold together for storage when not in use.
The new PM440 is billed as Pyramat’s largest sound rocker yet, equipped with a two-point adjustable headrest, 3-inch full-range speakers and 5.5-inch subwoofer, iPod connection (using a mini jack input) and holster, headphone jack for private listening, accessories storage pocket and breathable mesh fabric. It’s coming to retailers for $149.99.
The S2000 is specifically aimed at teen gamers — it touts many of the same features as the PM4400, without the adjustable headrest and covered in a poly-stretch fabric, and it retails for $129.99.
For gamers on a budget, Pyramat has rolled out the S1000 — a $99 chair that eschews the subwoofer, but includes all the key features of the S2000.
