Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Review
by Steve Scott on Apr 10, 2023
As a massage chair expert, I have had the pleasure of trying out countless massage chairs in my career. In this review, I will be sharing my experience with the Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair, a popular model in the market that has garnered attention for its 3D massage technology and zero gravity positioning.
Our First Impression:
The Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair was easy to assemble and took only 20 minutes to put together. Its sleek design is a perfect fit for any modern home and comes in three colors: black, brown, and beige. The chair is well-built and comfortable to sit in for someone up to 6’3”. However, if you're planning to buy the chair, make sure to check your door measurements as it is 31.3” wide and might not fit through all doors.
Our Favorite Features of the Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair
The Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair boasts several exciting features, but here are our favorites:
3D Massage Technology: This feature allows the massage rollers to move up and down, left and right, and in and out, providing a deep tissue massage that targets sore muscles.
Zero Gravity Positioning: This feature places the chair in a reclined position, evenly distributing the body's weight and reducing pressure on the spine. It is perfect for those who suffer from back pain or just want to relax.
Heat Therapy: The Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair has built-in heat therapy that can be applied to the back and calves. This feature helps increase blood flow and enhances the overall massage experience.
Air Compression Massage: The airbags in the chair provide a compression massage that targets the arms, shoulders, hips, and legs. This feature is perfect for those who suffer from muscle tension in those areas.
Things we liked:
During our testing of the Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair, we noticed several things that we liked, including:
Deep Massage: The massage rollers provided a deep tissue massage that targeted the sore muscles in our back.
Nice Selection of Massage Programs: The chair comes with a variety of massage programs that cater to different massage needs, including deep tissue, Swedish, and shiatsu.
Space-Saving Technology: The Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair has a unique space-saving technology that allows it to be placed as close as 2 inches from the wall, saving space in the room.
Electric Ottoman: The ottoman of the chair is electric, making it easy to adjust to your desired position.
Things we disliked:
While the Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair has many great features, there were a few things we disliked:
Roller Did Not Accurately Hit the Muscles in My Back as Accurately as Other Similar Models: During our testing, we noticed that the massage rollers didn't always hit the muscles in our back as accurately as other similar models.
Foot Roller Too Deep but Can be Turned Off: The foot roller can be too deep for some users, but it can be turned off if necessary.
Could Use More Air Compression Cells: The air compression massage feature could benefit from more air compression cells to provide a more thorough massage experience.
Who this Chairs if Right for:
After our testing, we recommend the Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair for people who like deep tissue massage, deep foot massage, and easy-to-use chairs. However, it might not be the best option for those who want a light massage as the massage can be too deep for some users, even on the lighter settings.
Overall, we found the chair to be well-built, comfortable, and easy to use. Its 3D massage technology and zero gravity positioning are impressive features that make the massage experience more enjoyable. The heat therapy and air compression massage are also great additions that add to the overall massage experience.
However, we did notice a few areas where the chair could be improved. The roller not accurately hitting the muscles in the back and the foot roller being too deep could be problematic for some users. Additionally, while the air compression massage feature is useful, it could benefit from more air compression cells to provide a more thorough massage experience.
In conclusion, if you're in the market for a massage chair that provides a deep tissue massage, zero gravity positioning, and a variety of massage programs, then the Osaki OS-3D Hiro LT Massage Chair is definitely worth considering. However, if you're looking for a chair that is more accurate in hitting the muscles in the back or want a lighter massage experience, you may want to explore other models from Osaki or other brands.
