About this deal

Engineered Now had been around for almost a decade and was the first to release a fully adjustable mesh headrest for the Classic Aeron chairs. You can tell that the inventor is very concerned about the headrest’s durability, function and adjustability aspect. This matches the direction of how Aerons were designed, adaptable to fit most people. Offices take a long time to develop and to get into the condition you would have expected, it is simply a fact. Few things in life can be quite as hard to organise, at least at fair cost, as an office for your staff. However, if you are looking to buy quality used office furniture such as seating, then you are in the right place. Thanks to our growing range of used Herman Miller Aeron chairs, you can get all of the support that you could possibly need to make a big difference. We have a guide to help you through the process of selecting the proper headrest, but before you go there, here are 4 steps you might find helpful.

Please note that Atlas Headrest does not cover aesthetics such as scratches or scuffs, or abuse such as fabric rips, snags, soiled, or stained. Herman Miller prides itself on the quality of its products, and all of them have warranties for parts and labor. The Aeron Chair, one of its most popular and coveted office chairs, comes with a 12-year warranty for parts and labor. Whilst an improvement on the original designs I'm surprised at the high price now it's arrived, I get the impression this headrest has been priced according to the chair price which isn't justified after all it's 99% plastic. Whilst I appreciate Herman Miller should have considered offering a head rest option for the Aeron, it's good that VendorGear have designed one, unfortunately version 2 is flawed but better than version 1. Headrest Type: You will need to decide which type of head support you would like, either a cushion type in Fabric or Vegan Leather, or the Suspension type, which will match the mesh on your chair. The cushion and suspension headrest have different comfort attributes. Feel free to reach out if you need help deciding which is right for you. https://hermanmilleraerongroup com/2022/02/03/oem-herman-miller-aeron-chair-arm-yoke-left-side-only-genuine-aeron-parts/The cushion is huge and wide for Atlas, but the surface is flatter. They call it the suspension mesh, and it is a little springy, which is quite similar to the HR03/HR04. Opening the box, inside was the headrest, and alum key and a replacement bolt. The replacement bolt is to be used if you had a size A (smallest chair).

The Aeron comes with a 12yr warranty, this head rest looks as though it may last up to perhaps 5yrs depending on use. For the price it should have been designed in keeping with the chairs design life. At this rate if I keep my chair 10yrs+ I'm most likely going to require at least two head rests. Both can adjust the depth, height and angle. We will say that the Engineered Now headrest should be more adjustable as it has more room to adjust for depth. The Engineered Now headrest also has an active free-flowing design that adjusts while the user tilts the chair.

Both use Nylon frames. Nylon is a very hard material that doesn’t easily corrode and has some form of self-lubricating properties. The chassis of your Aeron chair is mainly made of Nylon. Which is easier to install? damage due to exposure to harsh chemicals, including some found in fabric dyes, laundry detergent, body lotions, hair products, etc. Aesthetic issues like scratches and scuff marks, rips and snags on the fabric, soiled or stained fabric, and product abuse, are not covered by the warranty. When you first receive your Atlas Headrest, we encourage you to try out many different positions and angles with both the vertical and horizontal adjustments, as well as the upward and downward tilt possibilities. Find a tension setting on your knobs that will support your head while allowing for easy adjustability.

Below are the main differences based on the latest design. The OEM are the direct production line, so they may react swiftly and make amendments for various reasons. We can’t guarantee that the designs will always be the same. Any changes are supposed to be improvements or necessary. The Atlas Headrest comes with a three-year warranty. However, the fabric only has a 90-day warranty. Another big advantage of the Engineered Now headrest is it can be easier adjusted while the user remains seated. For the Atlas headrest, some adjustments may require the user to stand up and adjust first before sitting or get someone to help to adjust. However, according to Herman Miller, warranty is voided if there are any signs of misuse, abuse, or modification of their products. Furthermore, Herman Miller states that they cannot guarantee that their products will perform as they should if a non-Herman Miller accessory is used with it.Atlas uses the same pellicle fabric as Herman Miller to match your Aeron Chair, whatever the color you have. The Atlas Headrest comes in various versions, including Classic, Remastered, and Gaming. Other than some minor tweaks to improve the design a little. Can’t tell the quality difference between the OEM and the original Engineered One Headrest. You can see for yourself below. The biggest difference is the PRICE, and it’s becoming very popular.

The HR04’s size is somewhere between Atlas and HR03. It is highly adjustable, but it rests at a taller height. We recommend the HR04 option be considered only for people with 180cm / 5 feet 11 and above.Overall, these are the best headrests available for the Aeron chair. Each with its strength and weaknesses, and which is better depends on what you deem as more important. The Engineered Now headrest fare slightly better in adjustability and ergonomics. While the Atlas fare slightly better in design and material. The best seems to the from Taiwan, which is believed to be the OEM at some point. In fact, they have rectified some issue, only problem is they are much more expensive than the other replicas, and we think it’s worth the extras. Your next position is your best position! Get used to moving your headrest regularly - you should be moving regularly too. https://hermanmilleraerongroup com/2018/12/08/herman-miller-aeron-mesh-office-desk-chair-medium-size-b-b10-adjustable-lumbar/ https://hermanmilleraerongroup com/2023/01/02/remastered-aeron-adjustable-posturefit-sl-support-kit-by-her-aer906bg1-3/
