Cozzia Qi XE Massage Chair Video Review
The Cozzia Qi XE represents the pinnacle of technology developed by Cozzia for their massage chairs. This is a direct evolution from the Cozzia Qi SE. This model operates on the same frame as the SE version of this chair, but in many ways is a completely different model. Offering advances in the processing unit and massage algorithms, addition of brushless motors, improved speed of and quality of air compression, and other more subtle differences, this chair adds the extreme to Cozzia long standing flagship model.
Combining these new features with stand out signature colors and improved finishes, the chair has taken a proven and durable massage chair and made it even better. The brushless motors add additional durability and a quieter motor, which to us makes this investment worth the additional cost.
The Cozzia QI XE extends the legacy of the Vario Human Motion technology pioneered in the Cozzia Qi SE, and advances its design with the addition of the new M5 processor unit. This processor provides even more advanced massage simulation through faster processing and responsiveness during the massage. The chair has 2 additional levels (now with 6 levels) of depth controls to add additional flexibility to control how therapeutic the massage is.
This chair offers some of the best neck and shoulder massage and stretching and pliability programs in the industry. We loved how this chair responded to the natural curvature of our spine and provided just the right amount of pressure where it was needed.
Cozzia is known for technology features and the Qi XE is no exception. With the addition of tri-zone heating in the lumbar, calves and rollers, double the # of auto programs, improved custom program design controls, faster processing unit, fast pump air cell technology, and the implementation of brushless motors the Cozzia Qi XE is arguably the most advanced massage chair on the market today.
We found the chair to be notably quieter during operation. In addition, the tri-zone heating helped to melt away stress and improved the effect of the other massage features. We loved the way the chair was able to provide an incredibly air compression onto the hips. The fast pump air cells allow the chair to increase the PSI signficantly higher than other models, and it is immediately when turning a program like joint care or the pliability and stretching program. This chair offers exceptional technology features comparable to some $10,000 - $12,000 price point chairs.
5 year extended warranty included on select models
Almost every massage chair on the market offers some type of therapeutic benefits. The Cozzia Qi XE differentiates more so through the combination of all its therapeutic features than any one option. We really enjoyed the joint care, stretching and pliability programs. These are all superior to other chairs available on the market. They provide therapeutic stretching for the ankles, calves, hips, back and neck that bring a whole new dimension to the benefits of a massage chair.
The Cozzia Qi XE also offers superior massage features in the neck and shoulder and mid/lower back that help melt away stress without providing too intense of a massage. We loved the way this chair used more subtle rhythmic massage controls and improved sensitivity in its massage programs to differentiate its therapeutic result.
The custom programs available inside the Qi XE have been improved vs the Qi SE model that has been available for years. You can now choose the massage strength that you would like as you design the program. In addition, you have the capability to control the light programs and massage styles to further create a targeted and customized massage. Up to 3 programs can be designed and saved for later use. The chair has a unique dial control to adjust the intensity of the massage during the program. The tablet display is also an easy and intuitive tool to control the features of the chair.
The addition of brushless motors in the Cozzia Qi XE increases the life of the motor vs a standard massage chair by 30-40%. This additional helps to justify the difference in cost while also providing demonstrable value for much longer than a typical massage chair would offer. In our view, the brushless motors and proven quality control differences at Cozzia sets this chair at a different level than its competition. One consideration with Cozzia is their robust service department, concierge service, and dedicated team that can aqssist with solving any problems that might arise. Many massage chair manufacturers fail to offer proper support and parts replacement to address issues with a massage chair. Cozzia's 5 star service differentiates it vs other brands and is a positive across there entire line of products.

The Cozzia Qi XE is an exceptional massage chair with a variety of features that separate it from its competition. That said, the Qi XE is not modestly priced with an MSRP of $9,499 and a sale price of $7,499. Even at the sale price this is a luxury model design from a price perspective. While the loaded features across every component of the chair separate it from other models, its steep price point loses a star even considering these features.
This model massage chair is one of very few models we have rated 5 stars. We settled on this rating due to the unique combination of technology features, therapeutic benefits and proven durability in its design that separate it from almost every other chair on the market.
