PhantomFocus eChair™

The PhantomFocus™ eChair™ is the perfect companion and is now an integral part of the revolutionary PhantomFocus™ System (PFS™) for professional audio monitoring. The PhantomFocus eChair is the worlds first chair specifically designed and built for the recording engineer and is now available to all serious recording professionals. Once properly adjusted to each unique physique, the engineer can be “locked in” to the PFS listening sweet spot, heretofore unattainable with any other chair, rendering a consistent listening posture while making slumping virtually impossible.

The eChair is the pro audio application of a former Grand Prix and Endurance champion Le Mans and GrandAm series
racecar driver's obsessive research and developement to design the ultimate chair for back support and posture. It features advanced mechanics and materials to perform in a manner that actually improves the health of an engineer's back. The patented ZenWave motion provides unbinding, stress-free support as the engineer leans forward in a natural position, and protects the lower back from injury. Additionally, the scientifically designed backrest moves with the engineer to massage the lumbar area of the spine, which increases blood flow and nutrients to the lower back muscles and intervertebral discs.


  • PhantomFocus™ System sweet spot lock-in
  • Patented ZenWave™ motion technology allows you to float forward and backward without harmful pressure
  • Active Tilt™ seat plate pivots smoothly forward and backward to promote proper spine alignment

"Long associated with world-class studio design and drop-dead monitoring, Carl has upped the bar with his new PhantomFocus eChair. We purchased one and our staff immediately demanded another. This is the mixing chair that I (and my lower back) have long sought." - Mike Kolar, engineer/producer/founder Soundscape Studios - Chicago, IL

"Although our Aeron chairs provide comfortable seating for clients, working at the console I can mix on the PhantomFocus eChair for a full day and when I stand up, I feel like I haven't been sitting at all. It has by far the best support for my back of any chair I have tried." - Sean Spence, engineer/producer/owner The Blue Grotto - Nashville, TN

"In 25 years of composing and programming at a keyboard and DAW, nothing has kept my back as healthy or, through the ergonomics of its design, kept me as physically and mentally poised for the task at hand as the PF eChair - I know, because I’ve tried most of it, including chairs nearly ten times the price.” - Tom Snider, composer/engineer/owner The News Room, Nashville, TN
