The Osaki OS Pro Admiral is one of the latest additions to Osaki's Pro level collection. Released in mid-2019, the Admiral has quickly become one of the most popular massage chairs on the market, offering premium quality, technologies and features at an unbeatable value in this category. This chair is loaded with premium options such as 16 Advanced Auto Massage programs, 3D body scanning, 3D L-Track massage technology, advanced dual heat therapy, luxury finishes and more.
Standing a step above other chairs in this price range or category, the Admiral builds on Osaki's rich and longstanding history of quality, innovation and technology in the massage category. What really impresses us is the level of personalization offered with 16 expertly designed therapeutic auto massage programs, localized and manual massage options, which allows you to quickly select a massage that fits your need, or build your own from scratch. I would recommend this chair to a customer looking for a premium massage chair at a very accessible price point.
As the chair starts up, you'll notice right away that the Admiral starts to fit you. The advanced 3D Body Scan technology uses precise rolling and pressure to map out key points along your neck, spine and height in order to provide a very accurate, personalized, and effective massage. Once complete, the Admiral will prompt you to make any necessary adjustments.
Settling into the chair, one of my favorite highlights of the Admiral is the plethora of massage options right at your fingertips. With 6 massage styles, 16 highly specialized full autoprograms, localized programs that allow you to focus on specific areas of your body, this chair is able to accomodate any therapy needs. In addition, advanced 3D technology allows you to adjust the depth and intensity of the massage rollers from a mild relaxing massage to deep tissue in 6 levels.
The Admiral has a steady, smooth and versatile massage experience which can be customized for a light and relaxing massage, deep tissue, and anywhere in between.
There is a lot of technology packed into the Admiral. A few of my favorite highlights are the preloaded relaxation sounds that play through the Bluetooth speakers and the catalog of professional grade massage programs.
While lacking some of the Ultra-Luxury options like touch screen control and wireless phone charging, the Admiral offers USB charging port, motorized leg extension, enhanced heat therapy, 3D body scanning, a space saving Zero Gravity design and an easy to use full color LED remote control to create a very compelling technology package.
5 year extended warranty included on select models
Using a combination of dual stage heat therapy, 3 stage reflexology foot rollers, preloaded sound and total compression therapy, the Admiral leaves little to want in ways of total body therapy.
In my experience, where the Admiral shines is in the heat therapy and the unique foot roller design. Since this chair features a dual stage heat design, it will provide relief in the back as well as the calves and knees. When combined with the compression therapy, this pairing proves to relieve more tension and joint stress than other chairs that are up to and including this price range. The second feature that stood out was the unique, 3 stage reflexology therapy. By utilizing this design, the Admiral is able to provide soothing, kneading style therapy while delivering relief to stimulate acupressure points while the air bags will compress to give you a deep tissue foot massage. If the Admiral was lacking, however, in any particular spot, it would be the stretching motions.
Editors Note: While the Admiral does have an amazing catalog of programs and settings, the stretching motion does not stretch as far as the Paragon or Maestro 2.0. If you are in search of the Stretch program specifically, we'd recommend looking at the Paragon or Maestro 2.0 as well.
The Osaki OS Pro Admiral offers a multitude of customizable settings and functions all at the touch of a button and it's easy to navigate remote. The all encompassing catalog of autoprograms combined with the ability to control depth, intensity and strength of the rollers and airbags provide a broad spectrum of massage combinations.
When customizing the massage, the 3D technology allows you to change the depth of the massage up to 6 levels, while allowing for up to 5 levels of Strength, Intensity, Speed and Air Massage. The ability to manually control the chair allows you to create a targeted deep tissue massage or a light relaxing massage at the touch of button.
The Osaki OS Pro Admiral is protected by a full coverage 3 year parts and labor warranty. While the Admiral is a newer release, the Osaki commitment to quality components and technology means you can rest easy with the durability of this chair, as Osaki is an industry leading manufacturer. We feel that this chair will serve you and your loved ones for years to come.
Editor's Note: A lower weight capacity compared to higher end models and more advanced designs available in the Maestro 2.0 and Paragon leaves this chair with 4 out of 5 stars
5 year extended warranty included on select models
The Admiral is one of the best values when it comes to massage chairs. Priced in a range with chairs with far fewer features and customization, this chair far exceeds it's price point.
When first reviewing this chair, I was shocked that it was not priced in a higher category while still offering most options that you can find in higher priced models. This particular chair offers one of the best values in the industry.
The Osaki OS Pro Admiral received an overall score of 4.1, earning it a 4 out of 5 star rating. Offering features often found in higher priced models, and boasting brand new design and engineering, enhanced customization features and advanced therapeutic technologies, this chair is where technology, innovation, luxury and value meet to provide a massage experience topped by only a few.
