Couchmaster CYCON² Sonic Edition is coming alongside Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie

Couchmaster CYCON² Sonic Edition

Premium ergonomics maker nerdytec has announced a Couchmaster CYCON² Sonic Edition rig for your couch-PC gaming needs, and it’s coming alongside Sega’s big Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie.

The new Couchmaster CYCON² Sonic Edition is launching alongside the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie on April 8th, 2022. As with their regular Couchmaster CYCON² setup, it comes with all the bels and whistles like built-in USB, slots for optional power, and of course – side pockets for drinks, a TV remote, and more.

The Couchmaster CYCON² Sonic Edition will be sold over on the official nerdytec online store. Their other offerings for a Couchmaster CYCON² run around $180 so this will likely be similarly priced.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to premiere on April 8th, 2022. In case you missed it, you can find the debut trailer for the second movie here. You can also find our review for the first film here (we recommend it!).

Here’s a product rundown:


The new CYCON² represents the current flagship of the available Couchmaster models. Thanks to the six integrated USB 3.0 ports, all required input devices such as keyboards, mice, gamepads and headsets can be connected directly to the Couchmaster. Of course, mobile devices like smartphones or tablets can also be connected and charged at the fast-charging USB port. To keep the cables of the connected devices out of the way, the Couchmaster CYCON² has a modified and now even more easily accessible cable management system.


To avoid having to lay countless cables across the living room up to the couch, nerdytec came up with something very special. A cable, especially developed for the CYCON², establishes the connection between PC and Couchmaster, and simultaneously provides additional power with the included power adapter. This way, even the most power-hungry devices can be operated with the CYCON².


Thanks to the compact cushions, the new CYCON² takes up less space on the sofa. In terms of materials, we chose high-quality memory foam and a robust suede-like cover. For environmental reasons, the cushions are now vacuum-packed, so that the size of the packaging is considerably reduced. On the other hand, only fully recycled plastic is used for the support board.


From an ergonomic point of view, the Couchmaster CYCON² is highly recommended. Physiotherapist Roland Kellerbach from Cologne, Germany comments: “From a health point of view, I can say that the Couchmaster offers the best ergonomics for using the PC/laptop from the couch. Thanks to the large cushions, the shoulder and neck muscles are relieved during use, which effectively prevents tension.”

As the graphic shows, the Couchmaster allows a back-friendly sitting position. Health problems can thus be completely eliminated.
