Review: The Raynor Ergohuman V2 vs. The Original Ergohuman: Is Change Good?

The new Raynor Ergohuman V2 has earned some pretty strong buzz lately. We’ve received countless phone calls and emails in the past several weeks about the new Ergohuman models, and most of our clients all seem to be asking the same question about the V2: Is it any better than the original Raynor Ergohuman Chair?

The easy answer is … yes (for some people)! The V2 offers all of the same great ergonomic features of the original Ergohuman and more. The V2 features a slimmer seat with a softer edge, more reclining options than the original chair, arms that are more adjustable, and more frame and fabric options when compared to the original. However, The V2 is not recommended for larger users, since the seat is more narrow, and the plastic sides that support the seat could cause contact stress for larger users.

Change is good … for most people. OK, so maybe change is good for some people. Maybe you like it when things stay the same, and that’s OK! The V2 models were crafted with our ever-changing workspace needs and roles in mind, but, sometimes it just feels rightto stick with a proven winner; a classic. And that’s exactly what the original Ergohuman is—a solid, attractive, and comfortable ergonomic chair solution that will fit almost anyone’s needs.

So let’s readdress the original question from the first paragraph of this post: Is the Ergohuman V2 any better than the original Ergohuman? Here’s the honest answer: It all depends on you. The Human Solution strives to help you find the right ergonomic products to fit your specific needs. For some people, the V2 is a welcome change from the original. For others, the original remains the winner. We get that, and, with that in mind, we’ve compiled the following Ergohuman V2 feature list to help you decide which Ergohuman version is right for you.

    Amazing chair yes it’s not a cheap chair but it wipes out the crappy leather fabric chairs. I had a leather chair that I purchased for $350 and it lasted only 2 months eventually the back snapped why? I have no idea I’m thinking terrible built quality, but the ergohuman v2 is very comfy very well built and many different adjustable settings and also alot of back support for people with back problems.

    Hi, could you please tell if this chair is OK for a person 6’29 tall (192cm)… I would really like to get one but I’m very tall.

      Hi Gregor,

      The V2 has actually been discontinued, however the original Ergohuman will work great. Our recommendation would be to go without the headrest, since you may find the model with the headrest has the headrest set a little too low for you

      • Gregor Ackermann

        Thank you. The thing is, I need a headrest, it reduces the tension on the neck. One website says that this chair is good for people up to 6’4 tall, but I also heard that 6’2 should be the limit for a headrest model.
