Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – H3 (OEM)

The Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – H3 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, while keeping their posture locked in place.


The Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – H3 is the most recommended upgrade we advise users to adopt. It is designed to be fully adjustable to suit your body’s position. What’s different compared to the other headrests is its adjustability. It can be adjusted in its height, depth and angle. The Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – HR03 Standard 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 full adjustment with better manoeuvrability. Height, Depth & Tilt Control
  • Concave cushion design to keep the head better positioned and from sliding off while taking naps.
  • 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 Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – H3 had always been deemed to be 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 Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – H3 is fully adjustable, you can tune the right angle to fit the position of your neck, as well as how much support is necessary. The Ergonomic Aeron Headrest – H3 Standard fits so snugly until 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. 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 tighten the tension bolt located inside the side caps slightly. 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 and the tightness of the up-down action. 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.



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 several years. If your chair was purchased before 2016, it’s the Classic.

If you purchased a new chair recently. It should be a remastered Aeron.

The original adjustment rod on the left has a smooth surface. Some users complain that the positioning slips too easily. The adjustment rod on the Taiwan OEM allows stepped adjustments to hold positions better.

We notice a better finish on the frame. A closer match to the original chair. The mesh is almost identical and matches the Aeron chair perfectly.







Installation is similar to the Engineered Now; users can take them as reference.

Only one screw has to be tightened.
