For those looking for an ideal keyboard bench to go with their digital piano, you are at the right place!
There are a few factors you should look at when purchasing a best keyboard bench:
Portability: The best portable keyboard benches are made to be lightweight and portable. The best adjustable keyboard benches can also fold for easy storage and carrying. If you are looking for a music bench that is meant to be stable and sitting in the same place, you may be looking for a piano bench.
Height Adjustments: Most keyboard benches do not have quick height adjustment knobs. The ones that do, such as the Hercules KB200B, are a bit pricier, but are worth it if you want to quickly adjusting sitting positions in a tight situation.
Please do not confuse keyboard benches with piano benches (as even google confuses the two).
A piano bench looks like this:

Hercules KB200B Keyboard Bench
For professional musicians, I highly recommend this best digital keyboard bench.
A key feature of the Hercules KB200B bench is the quick and easy height adjustment knob. You can easily switch between four different height positions with this best adjustable keyboard bench. With the other keyboard benches, you have to painstakingly flip the keyboard bench upside down, unscrew the securing latches, and switch the positioning of the keyboard legs in order to change the height.
In addition, with a micro adjustment knob, you can adjust the keyboard bench in subtle amounts. This is best for keyboard players looking for a very specific height position.
This keyboard bench weighs about 14 pounds.
Some users of this bench feel that the padding is a bit hard.
Proline PL1250 Keyboard Bench With Memory Foam
I have personally used this keyboard bench by Pro Line, the PL1250, and it had lasted for years.
It’s very soft to sit on, as the cushion is made from memory foam.
Very easy to adjust with handy height adjustments.
Here is picture of the Pro Line bench I used for about 6 years. I replaced it with a Yamaha PKBB1 keyboard bench.
I highly recommend this keyboard bench for those who wish for a very soft and comfortable bench that can easily adjust.

The best selling keyboard bench on Amazon.com! It is also very affordable.
The X Style keyboard bench has a padded top and steel legs that can be adjusted to 3 different height positions.
This best keyboard bench weighs eight pounds, so it can easily be carried with one hand.
Some users complain that this the Yamaha PKBB1 bench is a bit wobbly. If this happens, simply return your bench.
The padding is also pretty firm and tough.
This keyboard is also a bit difficult to adjust. You can see this on the following picture:
You have to unscrew the turn dial screw, line up the holes in the two columns, and painfully try to connect everything and screw at the same time.
If you are not too concerned with adjusting your bench with ease, and want an inexpensive keyboard bench, then this keyboard bench will be good for you.
