Engineered Now Aeron Headrest – HR04 (Large)
The Engineered Now Aeron Headrest is the missing item for the Aeron chair to provide the support all the way to the neck. It’s the most sold headrest ever designed for the Aeron chairs. With this upgrade, the user can finally lean back and rest for a long period of time, while keeping their posture locked in place.
The Engineered Now Aeron Headrest is the most recommended upgrade we advise users to adopt. It is the first headrest design that is fully adjustable, designed and patented in USA. What’s different compared to the other headrests is its adjustability which is patented. It can be adjusted in its height, depth and angle. The Engineered Now headrest has a free-flowing design, which adjusts as the user tilts. Users can make adjustments easily from a seated position.

The Engineered One headrest had always been deemed to be the missing piece for the Aeron chair.
It empties every gap from your lower spine up to your neck forming the perfect support. To support the head, the best spot to support is the neck. Else pushing the head too much may result in the forward head posture
FAQ: My headrest doesn’t lock into place. Is there something wrong with it?
Answer: No, this is by design. Engineered Now knows that no one stays in one position all day. Our headrests are designed to be free-flowing, move with you, and adjustments are made easily from a seated position. To adjust the tension, you simply need to slightly tighten the tension bolt located inside the side caps. Having the right tension is important for getting the perfect experience from the headrest. You want to have it just tight enough to take your weight but still adjustable by hand while seated.
The Aeron headrest’s tension can be adjusted by tightening the tension screws.
Warning: Do not tighten too much to avoid cracking the frame.
Tightening the screw above will adjust the tension of the headrest’s rotation, as well as the tightness of the up-down action. Do note that the headrest is not supposed to hold tightly in the up-down position. It is meant to provide a synchronized movement as the person tilt.

Remastered or Classic Aeron?
The classic Aerons had phased out for a number of years. If your chair was purchased before 2016, it’s definitely the Classic.
If you had purchased a new chair recently. It is most likely a remastered Aeron.
How to know if your headrest is original?
Engineered Now is located in the USA and the headrest design is patented.
The fabric is calibrated to allow a suspension system to avoid been too firm and create pressure points causing discomfort.
It appears that there are some knockoffs coming from China, that do not possess the same quality in material or design.

- There’s a logo on the headrest.
- There’s a printed box with colour printed instructions.
