I spoke for quite a bit of time with Jimi Hahm, national sales manager for Omega Massage chairs (www.omegamassage.com) and thought I’d share some very interesting info regarding their line-up of massage chairs.
1. The new and popular Serenity and Skyline zero gravity massage chairs are available to compete with the Sanyo RX1, which is a Relax the Back exclusive. The Sanyo RX1 is an airbag-only zero gravity chair that retails for $2799. The Serenity and Skyline models are the same genre of massage chair, but with rollers in the lower back, in addition to the air bags. These chairs also go for $2499 and $2199, respectively. We have a white Serenity model in our showroom and it is very striking, as far as looks go. That is the other thing that these new Omega chairs have over the Sanyo chair…they are very contemporary looking and would fit in the decorum of any room of any home or office. Designed to look like a regular piece of furniture.
2. As you know from previous blog posts on my blog, the Omega 510 was discontinued quite some time ago. It was one of our favorite chairs because of the rich feature set that came for a very reasonable price. Omega is working on another mid-range priced model right now which would replace the 510. This new model will have full-body heat, which I’ve never seen before in any other chair, zero gravity function (which Omega seems to be going to in all their new models), and a 3D roller, which they will call Slimline. Inada is the only other chair that we know of that carries a 3D massage roller function. I’ll be curious to see this one when it comes to market.
3. Omega will eventually come out with another high end chair, in the Montage massage chair range, that will be an improvement on the old faithful Montage model.
I received a notice from Omega Massage Chairs, whose products we sell on our website and in our showroom, describing to us the design changes to the popular and very affordable M-2 massage chair. Here is what is up with the new design:
1. Flat style leg rest with 4 calf and foot rollers. No more calf wells….massage is within the ottoman, but not through the traditional calf wells.
2. Redesigned back pain for added comfort and style.
3. Arched cervical pillow for improved head support.
Great chair for the money. Omega came out with the new Skyline and Serenity zero gravity massage chairs, which also employ the same flat style calf and foot leg rest/ottoman. I don’t know how effective this massage will be compared to the calf well ottoman. I suspect that it will be much less intense, but I have heard through the grapevine that this flat style actually does a fairly vigorous job massaging the calves.
Regarding my blog post at the tail end of last week, the 5 year head to toe, comprehensive, in-home warranty that we are offering with the purchase of a Human Touch HT-1650 and HT-7450 massage chairs has been quite a hit! If you are considering one of these best sellers for Christmas, this $369 value is a nice perk to get the order done.
Now, we just recently put up the new Omega Zero Gravity massage chairs, the Serenity and Skyline massage chairs. Very contemporary chairs and priced very reasonably. I think that these chairs will be a home run for Omega. Take a look on my site at them and leave feedback as to what you think about what you read and see. The zero gravity massage chairs have been a hit since Human Touch came out with the HT-7450 and Sanyo followed suit with their 7700 massage chair. These new, lower priced models from Omega, competing with the Sanyo 3700 massage lounger, will be available this month, with the Skyline coming first within the next week. Apparently, they are in the port right now awaiting release to go Omega’s warehouse. The Serenity is on it’s way in just a bit.
The Omega 510 massage chair has now been officially discontinued. There are only 4 black ones left, 1 brown and 1 ivory one left.
Hey, I just found out that Human Touch is offering a full 2 year on-site, comprehensive warranty for their massage chairs until early next year. What they have right now is a 5 year limited warranty, which is basically 1 year on-site parts and labor and 5 year structure/chasis. They are extending the 1 year on-site parts and labor to 2 years. A great offer for the holiday shoppers.
Massage Chair Relief is also offering a comprehensive 5 year warranty on the HT-7450 and HT-1650 massage chairs for the holidays! Aren’t we nice? Well, we know how much an extended warranty means to many of you, so we figured we’d offer that on the Human Touch chairs for this time of the year.
Some other massage chair notes:
1. Inada is offering a standard, factory 3-year warranty on their Sogno, i2A, and Doctor’s Choice massage chairs.
2. We have the Inada Cube massage chair in our showroom now and I sat on it for 1/2 hour last night and I must admit, for such a small and cute chair, it has a great low back and leg air bag massage. I was quite impressed. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much because of it’s deceptively small size, but the quality of the massage truly impressed me. And only $799!!
3. Your company’s FLEX plan pays for massage chairs. Take advantage of that before year’s end.
4. We have the new zero gravity massage chairs from Omega on our site…the Serenity and Skyline models. Pretty cool, eh?
5. Omega is discontinuing the Prestigio 510 model. Manufacturing costs have gotten too high so they are selling existing stock and then it will be no more! So, the bottom line is…if you want an Omega 510 massage chair, you better order now before existing stock is gone.
