Found a way to mod the headrest heightHere.
Oh that's genius. I have the hyken and I'm short and even I find the angle of the head rest weird. I will try this.

Went from the Ikea Markus to the Hyken. I've been using the Hyken for just over a year now and absolutely love it, for a person under 5'8 I would definitely recommend the Hyken over the Markus (as long as you're not obese) as the headrest and adjustable arms can make for the perfect fit. I used the Markus for over 3 years and although it looked great I found it giving me lower back problems with extended use and the thin armrests aren't as comfy as one would hope (although they're great for doing dips on the spot lol). The bonded leather/pleather on the Markus headrest started to fray quite a bit and looked terrible by the end.

Summary:
Ikea Markus
+ Suited for taller individuals (5'10+)
+ Looks better
+ Very sturdy, never had any structural issues
+ Comfortable for taller individuals (gave my chair to a 6'2 friend - he loved it)
- Not for shorter individuals (headrest not at optimal level, static armrests, lumbar support too high)
- Cheap material (pleather)
- Can get uncomfortable with prolonged use (for a short person)

Staples Hyken
+ Perfect for those 5'8 and under
+ Neck rest is super comfortable, adjustable armrests work good
+ Meshed fabric is nice on a hot days
- Seat can get uncomfortable at times
- Uncomfortable for those 5'10+
- You need to remove keys and hard edged objects in your back pocked while sitting to avoid potential damage to the seat

Hope this info helps!

Cheers

if you go through ebates, there should be a $10 off $100 coupon. I used that one since I don't have the $25 off coupon people got in the mail.

I'm 6"1 and 165lbs(I know, model size), will this chair be good for me? or is it a tall mans kryptonite? I have been using a mesh ikea chair i bought used for like $5, but it sucks. i just use a pillow, to soften the landing, and my butt always gets sore after an hour or so. I probably need a new desk too. Its too low.... or maybe i should raise it up on some casters...

i think you need to lose some weight buddy, so you can live longer and post more often in rfd :) for your own good!

Thanks for your concern, I appreciate it. I know I need to spend more time on cardio while at the instead of bulking it's hard when you can only do low impact exercises. I'm just slowly cutting while getting my injured knees(ball is life) treated.,

I really Just want a good chair for work.
