Engineered Now Aeron Headrest – HR03

The Engineered Now Aeron Headrest is the missing item for the Aeron chair to provide 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 long while keeping their posture locked.

The Engineered Now Aeron Headrest is the most recommended upgrade we advise users to adopt. It is the first headrest design fully adjustable, designed and patented in the USA. What’s different compared to the other headrests is its patented adjustability. 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.

Main advantages:

  • Patented design for total adjustment with better manoeuvrability. Height, Depth & Tilt Control
  • The concave cushion is designed to keep the head better positioned and from sliding off while napping.
  • Highly adjustable, can be tilted to most angles to fit all users.
  • Synchronized angling and fluid motion when the user tilts
  • Flexibility in extending to both height and depth.
  • Able to lock positions for most joints. (Most headrest designs sold in the market have a problem with locking in the depth).
  • Mesh design – No entrapment of body heat causing discomfort.
  • Better flexibility on the mesh to facilitate contouring.

The Engineered One headrest had always been deemed the missing piece for the Aeron chair.
It empties every gap from your lower spine 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

Forward head syndrome
Depth can be adjusted to avoid pushing the head too forward

As the Engineered Now Aeron headrest is fully adjustable, you can tune the right angle to fit the position of your neck and how much support is necessary. The Engineered Now Aeron headrest fits so snugly that you can’t move much out of your correct posture. It’s probably the best upgrade for the chair.

Adjustment Guide

Tension adjustment

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. The headrests are designed to be free-flowing and move with you, and adjustments are made easily from a seated position.

If you do find the need to have a stronger hold, you can refer to the instructions below to adjust the tension.

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 tilts.

HR03 or HR04?

Remastered or Classic Aeron?

The easiest way to tell is from the weaving or posture fit design. The design of the gearbox below the seat is also different.

The classic Aerons had phased out for a number of years. If your chair was purchased before 2016, it’s the Classic.

If you had purchased a new chair recently. It is most likely a remastered Aeron.

Does the headrest void the warranty?


Only one screw has to be tightened.

Will the headrest void my warranty?

From the investigation video below, it seems that only if the headrest does structural damage to the chair or mechanism will it be considered voiding the warranty. This includes drilling into the frame to secure the headrest, which none of the headrests mentioned on our website does. This includes the Engineered Now and Atlas headrests attached to the chair by tightening a bolt mechanism to secure them.

The new Ergonomic Aeron Headrests even have cushion pads to reduce scratches. It is hard to find evidence that that headrest was ever attached.

Product comes with 1 year manufacture warranty
