Best Herman Miller Aeron Headrest Review – Upgrade America’s Best Selling Chair

The Herman Miller Aeron Chair is “America’s best selling chair”. If you work for a big company, chances are you have sat on one, or maybe you’re lucky enough to sit on one every day like me. Not everyone can say they sit on a chair featured in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection, but those who sit in the Herman Miller Aeron Chair sure can.

Despite it’s praise and massive success, an Herman Miller Aeron headrest never existed… until recently when some some thoughtful engineers developed an aftermarket Herman Miller Aeron chair headrest.

For those of us who like to recline in our superb office chairs, while still working our hardest (of course), this is an amazing idea.

There are four contenders for the title of best Herman Miller Aeron headrest, and they are:

  • The H4 Full Herman Miller Aeron Headrest by Engineered Now
  • The H3 Standard Herman Miller Aeron Headrest by Engineered Now
  • The ENjoy HR-01/HR-02 Headrest for Herman Miller Aeron Chair by Engineered Now
  • The Atlas Headrest for Aeron Chair by Atlas

H4 Full Herman Miller Aeron Headrest Review

The H4 ENgage is a Full size headrest featuring a 20% larger pillow size and more adjustability than the H3 Standard. It perfectly matches the color and design of the black Herman Miller Aeron.

The H4 Full has a maximum height of 11″ and a maximum forward reach of 8″ allowing for full engagement in an upright sitting position. The H4 is recommended for all users looking for maximum comfort and adjustability and is a better fit than the H3 for individuals taller than 5 11 .

The H4 is our pick for the best Herman Miller Aeron Headrest in this review.

This headrest is backed by a 2 year manufacturer warranty.

The H3 ENjoy is a Standard size headrest, providing great adjustability at a great price. The H3 continues to be the most popular model of Herman Miller Aeron headrest. It features the same carbon color scheme and design style of the original Aeron chair, much like the bigger H4 model.

The H3 is best for all users under 5’11”.

The Atlas Headrest for Aeron Chair has a generous level of cushioning, making it the best Herman Miller Aeron headrest for those who often use headphones at their desk. It also matches the design of darker Aeron chairs, like the H3 and H4.

The Atlas Aeron chair headrest fits new and vintage styles of the Herman Miller Aeron. It is manufactured in western Michigan by Herman Miller’s biggest supplier and is available through Herman Miller dealers.

ENjoy HR-01/HR-02 Headrest for Herman Miller Aeron Chair Review

The ENjoy HR-01/HR-02 Headrest for Herman Miller Aeron chairs is a budget alternative to the H3/H4/Atlas headrests. Unfortunately the quality is not as good, but at such a low price point it may still be an option for you. It is certainly not the best Herman Miller Aeron headrest, but it may very well be the cheapest.

Customers have commented on the lack of durability and overall quality in this model. I would recommend the H3 model or Atlas if you’re looking for an option cheaper than the H4 Herman Miller Aeron headrest.
