REVIEW – With the shift of a lot of us finding ourselves working from home these days, a good office chair is of high importance. For me, functionality and comfort are important, but I also want it to look nice in my space. I was excited to have the opportunity to try out the Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair. Find out what I think.
What’s in the box?
The Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair came nicely packed in a large cardboard box in easy to assemble pieces with an instruction booklet.
Obviously, the Yaheetech Chair required some assembly, however, the instructions were easy to follow and parts were assembled simply. All in all, it only took about 20 minutes to assemble from start to finish.
- Materials: Sponge, Artificial Leather, PP, Iron, Non-woven fabrics
- Color: Dark Gray
- Overall Dimension: 25×23×44-47.5” (L×W×H)
- Seat Height: 19-23”
- Weight Capacity: 298 lb
Design and features
The Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair offers many adjustable features that make it a versatile option, especially if it will be a chair shared by multiple people of varying heights, weights and preferences.
Here are some of those features:
Chair shape and design
This Yaheetech chair features an s-shape back support and design. According to an ergonomic idea, the s-shape back is said to offer lumbar support and optimize your sitting position. I’m not sure if I am able to say if this is entirely true. However, I will say with confidence that I find the chair very comfortable and supportive. I do not like stiff backs or sitting entirely up straight, so for me, it’s perfect. If you need more of an upright position while sitting, I would recommend sticking a pillow behind your back to help get the position you prefer.
The Yaheetech chair features artificial leather in the seat area. I love that it makes it easy to clean and water-resistant. I have yet to see how it holds up to the test of time, but I do like how it feels and the durability of being able to clean it if and when needed.
The Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair seat is stuffed with high density foam. As you can see in the picture below, it is very bouncy and squishy. I love how comfortable it is to sit on for long periods of time.
If color matters to you, there are a few other color options. If you are purchasing the Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair directly from Yaheetech you only have the one color option, which is grey. If you choose to buy from Amazon, you can choose from black, grey or red. Just something to think about if color is something that matters to you. I personally would have chosen the grey if I had a choice.
Adjustable Seat Height
The Yaheetech chair seat height can be adjusted from 19-23’’. This allows you to adjust the height to fit your needs and desires. Being able to customize chair height is a must and this chair goes low enough for children to be at a comfortable height and tall enough to accommodate my husband at 6′ 3″. Adjusting the height is simple and smooth using the lever located on the lower right side of the chair.
The lever that adjusts the height of the seat also allows you to lock and unlock the “rocking” motion of the chair. This, like the adjustment of the height, is very easy to do. This makes it easy to lock into the sitting position, which does not allow the chair to lean back and then with a quick pull of the lever convert it into a relaxed rocking position.
Since we are on the topic of the rocking motion, I will say that the chair leans back a little further than I’m comfortable with. The first time that I leaned the chair back, I heard a cracking sound and thought for sure I would end up falling all the way to the ground. Spoiler alert, I did not and the chair was just fine, but noisy. The sound has since gone away after using it more, but I did feel it was important to mention.
Located on the bottom center of the Yaheetech chair you will find the tilt-tension knob. This knob will allow you to tighten and loosen the center-tilt tension while unlocked and in the rocking motion position. I found if you loosened it all the way, it tilts back way to far for my comfort and all the way tightened is more of my preference. Although I don’t find myself very often putting my chair in the unlocked rocking position, I do appreciate the option.
Movement and Base
Last, but not least, I want to discuss the base of the Yaheetech chair. The star base is made of sturdy metal with a 63cm/25’’ diameter and is advertised to hold up to 297 lbs. The base also sports 360 degree castor wheels, which allow smooth and steady mobility from any direction. With those caster wheels, the chair easily glides from across the floor and spins and rotates with ease. The only thing I have found is that it does make a squeaky clanking noise as it rolls, however is fairly common in most chairs I have owned, but wanted to make sure to mention it.
Yahteeetch provides free 60-day returns on orders fulfilled from the Yaheetch website and, depending on the circumstances, can offer a full refund. That being said, I have not attempted to return an item and can not provide any insight on this process.
What I like
- Easy assembly
- Easy to clean fabric
- The S Curve back design
- The overall appearance
- Price point
What I’d change
- The tilt was a little extreme in the reclined position
- Noisy/ squeaky gliding motion
The Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair did not disappoint. In fact, I have a couple of kids who keep trying to take it as their own. This chair has everything I look for in a chair. It is comfortable, mobile, attractive and adjustable. If you are in the market for a new affordable office or gaming chair, I would recommend you try out the Yaheetech High Back Office Desk Chair as an option.

1) I can’t imagine buying any chair that you are going to spend hours per day in w/o actually sitting in it. When I bought my most recent chair, I went to the place where I eventually bought it and spent a lot of time sitting in it before buying it. You can’t do that w a mail order chair. In case you do not like it, does this company have a free return policy.
2) You make this comment in your review – “If you need more of an upright position while sitting, I would recommend sticking a pillow behind your back to help get the position you prefer.” It makes no sense to buy a new chair that you may have to use a pillow with to be comfortable. This comment comes down to my point 1.
3) If you can’t find a good office furniture chair where you live, at least go to Office Max or Office Depot where you can try out the chair before buying it.
1. I will add in the refund policy in the article. https://www.yaheetech.shop/policies/refund-policy
Yaheetech does offer a 60-day free return policy. So this would give you plenty of time to test it out and see if it is the one for you. That being said, I have not attempted to return to the company, so I’m unsure of it is indeed as easy as it sounds.
2. I personally love the way this chair sits, but when my husband used it for a day he did not like that it wasn’t stiff and ridged on the back. With a pillow, he could make it work, but this would not be a chair that he would want. Our preferences are not the same and I can at least be happy that he won’t be stealing my chair.
With a free return policy, I would think that it would take a little of the uneasiness of purchasing without sitting in it first. Thanks again for your feedback.
