Starting off it’s notable to say that both of these gaming chairs have similar features:
Both styles are based off of race car seats
- Both are manufactured with steel frameworks. That means that they’re more durable, safe, and strong (both support a max weight of 396 lbs.).
- Both also come with the 5-star black base, which assists in the stability of the chairs themselves.
- Both have an ergonomic design, so if you’re planning on spending a heavy amount of hours they’re perfect for you. Bad posture can lead to many serious health problems; these chairs are specifically designed to promote good posture for those that sit for many hours (e.g., gamers and office workers).
- And here is conceivably the best part: both are highly adjustable. You can adjust the tilt (up to 180-degrees), height, back and armrests. As well as adjustable lumbar cushions and headrests. If you’d prefer not to have the armrests or cushions they are removable.
However, there are a few differences in these two models:
First being the colors: the AK-5015 comes in four different colors: black and white; black and blue; black and green; and, white and red. Those are the only colors available if you’re ordering from Amazon. Although, if you buy directly from AKRacing’s website there are a few extra color options.
You can also check different models of AKRacing chairs, like AK-7018. To read full comparison check this gaming chair comparison.
The AK- 7002 comes in black; black and silver; and, black and carbon black. Again, if you buy directly from AKRacing’s website there are a few extra options.
As for the differing designs I believe the AK-7002 has a more appealing look, but it is not as comfortable as the AKRacing AK-5015. That being said, both are ergonomic and promote good posture; and they should definitely be a preference versus a chair that isn’t made to promote good posture.
As for ratings the AK-5015 was rated a 4.2 out of 5 stars (although 63% of those customers gave it 5 stars); the AK-7002 fell short of that, coming in with 3.8 out of 5 stars (only 46% rated at 5 stars). These are current to this writing and based off of customer ratings (Amazon).
