Breaking it Down

The criteria for judging these chairs will be based on different ergonomic requirements from back support to seat depth. We will also consider the price for budget-conscious consumers.

Lumbar Support

One feature on the checklists of people looking for a great office chair is back support. A great ergonomic chair should support the user’s spine in a neutral position.

The NOUHAUS Ergo3D Ergonomic chair has the advanced 3-Dimensional Lumbar Support System. This cutting-edge feature not only supports the sitter’s back, but also hugs and adjusts to the contour of the person’s back and spine.

Improved back support will reduce the pain and compression, especially for people who work and sit at a desk 10 hours a day. With this feature, the chair’s lumbar support will shift and adjust to the sitter as they move in the chair.

NOUHAUS ErgoFlip

Unlike the NOUHAUS Ergo3D, the lumbar support on the NOUHAUS ErgoFlip is not adjustable. Even with its super-lounge tilt feature, the backrest does not adjust to the user’s back.

It supports the back and affords the user comfort; however, it is not as efficient as the NOUHAUS Ergo3D.

Winner: In terms of overall back support and comfort, the NOUHAUS Ergo 3D won this round. With its advanced 3-Dimensional Lumbar Support System, it provides extreme back support for the user.

Headrest

A headrest on an office chair is a reminder for the user to keep their heads touching it.

The Absolute BEST Ergonomic Chair Under $300 | Nouhaus Ergo3D

NOUHAUS Ergo3D features a 2D 13 by 6.7-inch headrest. This headrest is highly adjustable and can be moved in an up and down motion to support your head and neck. You can adjust it in whatever sitting position you are in and whatever height you may be.

Some office chairs have a fixed headrest, so this adjustable feature is welcomed. It is especially useful for a short nap on your break.

NOUHAUS ErgoFlip

Work how you want with the Nouhaus ErgoFlip

Like the NOUHAUS Ergo3D, the NOUHAUS ErgoFlip office chair is a 2D headrest 13 inches in length and 6.7 inches tall. It is also adjustable by tilting it up and down to the user’s desire.

Winner: If the chair’s headrest is on the top of your list, you cannot go wrong with either of these chairs. Both have 2D headrests that are adjustable to accommodate different heights.

Back Rest and Recline Feature

The reclining and backrest feature is vital for pain reduction for both your back and neck. It prevents poor posture while you sit. If you are suffering from acute back pain, you may want to move this feature to the top of your list.

The NOUHAUS Ergo3D office chair features the Super-Lounge Tilt, which allows you to recline up to 135 degrees. It comes with a tilt lock feature to keep you comfortable and safe as you play or do tasks.

NOUHAUS ErgoFlip

Just like the NOUHAUS Ergo3D, the NOUHAUS ErgoFlip also tilts at a 135-degree angle as the user lounges. It also comes with a tilt lock mechanism to lock the chair in place.

Winner: You cannot go wrong with the backrest and recline feature for both of these office chairs. Both chairs recline and they recline at the same angle for maximum comfort.

Armrests

You might think armrests in an office chair are only used for resting. They also take the pressure off of your lower back by supporting your upper limbs. Armrests on office chairs will benefit anyone with back problems. This is why most office chairs have them.

NOUHAUS Ergo3D

You’ll be so comfortable in our Ergo3D Ergonomic Office Chair that you won’t even mind working.⁣

Besides the lumbar support, the armrests are the cream of the crop in the NOUHAUS Ergo3D office chairs. Their armrests can be adjusted in three different ways: lifting them up and down, sliding them back and forth, or pivoting them to different angles.

If you are not a fan of armrests but fell in love with the chair’s lumbar support, you can take the armrest out of the chair, and it will still work perfectly for you.

NOUHAUS ErgoFlip

The armrests that come with the NOUHAUS ErgoFlip are widely different from their counterpart. Their armrests are only able to flip up and down. However, this chair comes with the advantage of padded armrests making it more comfortable.

Winner: The winner of this round depends on what you find attractive — padded armrests or ultra-adjustable armrests. For us, the ultra-adjustable armrests are what won this category since few office chairs have this feature.

Seat

The seat requirement accounts for both the seat width and depth. If you are taller, you should find a deeper seat. If you are a shorter person, look for a shallower one.

NOUHAUS Ergo3D

Review Nouhaus Ergo3D Office Chair 2022

The NOUHAUS Ergo3D’s chair width is 19.7 inches with a seat depth of 16.3 inches. The seat is made with mesh for better airflow. This is especially useful whether you work in an office or at home because it decreases sweating and stickiness, which is a downside you find in leather-made chairs.

NOUHAUS ErgoFlip

The NOUHAUS ErgoFlip has the advantage of having a deeper seat than its counterpart. It is .6 centimeters less in terms of hip width size. Like the NOUHAUS Ergo3D, it is made of mesh to let air flow as the user sits.

Winner: Both of the two seats take the cake for this category. A taller person might appreciate the inch difference in the seat depth of the ErgoFlip. A more petite person might prefer the shallower seat on the Ergo3D chair.

Price

There is a consensus that one should be able to spend a certain amount when buying a high-quality ergonomic office chair. However, quality is not always reflected by a product’s retail price. It can be true for some office chairs, but not all of them.
