History of the Egg Chair

Sound Isolation / Clear Accoustics & Audiophile Sound
The unconventional shape and construction of the Stereo Alpha Egg Chair make it perfect for both sound isolation and excellent accoustics. Its chamber-like shape and upholstered interior cancels out most outside noise, providing a unique environment for meditation, relaxation and just getting away from it all. Not only is it perfect for home use, but this dynamic has also made the Stereo Alpha Egg Chair a desirable tool in the field of psychology.

Listen to your favorite CD, watch a movie, or play video games in surround sound like never before. The Stereo Alpha Egg Chair comes standard with speakers, which can be connected via speaker wire to your receiver or home entertainment system. Add a tactile transducer and experience sound vibration and enhanced bass, virtually transforming your Egg Chair into a subwoofer. Or opt for the MP3 package instead, and transform your chair into a high-impact MP3 audio speaker. Simply plug in your portable device and listen to music the way it was intended to be heard. Its right and left speakers will create the ideal listening dynamic for any audiophile or music lover.

I've wanted one of these chairs for about 15 years now, and finally treated myself with one. It's spectacular. It's really beautiful, well made, and the speakers are awesome. I plan to reorganize more rooms in my house to add a couple more of these chairs. It just brings a smile to my face everytime I walk past it! Highly reccomend, the whole process was seamless! Everything from ordering fabric samples, to placing the order, to shipping, to delivery! I wouldn't change a thing. This chair is spectacular.

Review for Stereo Alpha Egg Chair
April 20, 2020
I purchased one with the Bluetooth speakers and ottoman option and received the chair around two weeks ago. I'm still waiting for the ottoman due to delays caused by the corona virus. So first off, the chair is very well made and the look is as advertised. The combination of the stereo system in a semi-enclosure is absolutely amazing. It gives a great surround sound experience and I was pleasantly surprised with the sound of the base. Originally I just wanted to get a basic model without speakers, but I'm glad I upgraded as it really adds to and enhances to the experience of sitting in the chair.

I was in the military for over 24 years and was first introduced to these chairs while visiting a resiliency center on base. During that visit, I sat in one and was hooked. It is a great "escape" and gives a great place to relax and rest. I found it to be a little on the pricey side, but I would buy it again.

I also have to give a big shout out to the customer service reps, as they were very responsive and quickly responded to any concerns that came up.

Fantastic- Husband loved his gift

I had no issues with ordering or delivery. Everything was exactly like we wanted. The quality oif the chair was top notch! The blue-tooth stereo sound system was amazing. Intuitive to set up.
Once you unpack it - it is very difficult to move - with the shape of this chair. It is not heavy - just difficult to get your arms around. But once you have placed it where you want - it was great. Very sturdy and high-end quality. Love it!

I had the original chair back in the 70's, and chose to get a new one. First I tried a Chinese knockoff, what a mistake. It was total crap. I took a chance on the In-mod egg chair, and have not been disappointed. It is better than the original. The sound is fantastic, and my wife has trouble getting me out of it. You cannot go wrong.

pretty cool chair
March 28, 2017
I ordered this chair after a lot of looking into all the available options. It seemed to be the best deal on what I hoped would be a well made chair... I bought it with the built in speakers and the subwoofer... (not with the "ipod option) as I wanted to hook it up to the sonos system I already have at home... It wasn't clear that the built in subwoofer isn't powered (like any subwoofer you might purchase for a home audio system) - which means it needs it own customer supplied external amplifier to work... (This is a little frustrating because I asked the customer service reps about the different speaker options both via email and telephone conversation before ordering, and this need to supply a separate amplifier to power the subwoofer wasn't explained- I think they really didn't know, I guess.. I don't think they were not telling me on purpose). Once I hooked up a separate amplifier and got the amplifier, subwoofer and the other built in speakers connected to my audio source, the speakers and subwoofer seem to work well.
The chair itself is fun to sit in, with the ottoman, its like a shell into which you may retreat and relax... The quality of the upholstery is so-so... I guess I bought it with the most basic fabric... but on arrival some of the glued together pieces were already separated... you can only tell, though, when you sit in it and the parts of the cushions pull apart...
Overall, it looks pretty spectacular, and its very comfortable- definitely an unusual piece, and I like it very much. I think the upholstery could be of slightly better quality, though.
  • unique
  • comfortable
  • medium quality upholstery with separated (on arrival) glued parts
  • poor pre-purchase explanation of subwoofer leads to additional expenses and complications powering audio system

What is the level of sound that this unit outputs outside of the chair? Is is relatively soundproof or can sound be heard clearly from outside the unit? We are looking at these as study spaces for library users.
1 Answer
The shape of the chair definitely blocks external noise when sitting in the chair however depending on the volume, it certainly can be heard outside the chair. We could discuss using different speakers or different amplifier or customizing it in other ways to soundproof further.

Hi, Can we get the egg chair without speakers?
1 Answer
The fiberglass mold for the Egg Chair has the speaker area cutout in order to accommodate the speakers. We can certainly make the chair for you without putting in the speakers and add a fill to the area where the speakers are located. Let us know if we can help you place an order.

Assume power is required? Would either the MP3 or Bluetooth option provide charging capability?
1 Answer
The standard 5.25 inch speaker option, you would need to power the speakers via an amplifier or receiver. If you choose the MP3 or bluetooth option, there is a built in amplifier powering the speakers with an ac adapter on the backside that will need to be plugged in. Our amplifiers currently do not support charging of your device.
