The Titan Pro Jupiter XL vs. the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral
When analyzing massage chairs, especially moderately expensive chairs, some features can make or break your decision. When you look at the Titan Pro Jupiter XL and the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral, the style of massage they offer and the additional features included contrast greatly. Which of these $4,300 massage chairs will give you the massage you want? Which is the right one for you? These chairs both provide L-Track massage, however, there are some additional features that differ.
Let’s start with understanding the most important feature- the massage track.
As developments in massage chairs proceed, the S-Track was extended into the L-Track. The L-Track was initially seen years back and customers could see its ability to travel down the spine under the seat to the glutes and hamstrings. That chair was an Inada, the first manufacturer to demonstrate an L-Track prototype.
Inada took time to perfect their chair, however, and because of this Infinity launched its Iyashi model, the first commercially available L-Track massage chair.
More and more models have come out since then, and many have started to implement the extended L-Track for greater massage coverage.
S-Track vs. L-Track
When you’re examining each track, think of it this way. The L-Track is an extension of the S-Track that massages your seat and hamstrings. It can work the glutes, piriformis, and hamstrings just as effectively as the neck, mid-back, and lower back. Before the L-Track was created, these areas could only be reached by airbags.
If you suffer from tight or sore glutes or have sciatica or piriformis syndrome, an L-Track could be a great addition to your massage chair. And remember, an L-Track massage chair still delivers the benefits of an S-Track. After all, the L-Track is just an extension of the S-Track.
Now, let’s take a look at space-saving since that’s another important feature found in both chairs.
What Does Space Saving Mean?
Most massage chairs, particularly those with many features and leg massage ottomans, require a great deal of space in your home. And that’s before you lay back in them.
Standard chairs require up to three feet behind the backrest for the chair to reach full recline. Plus, depending on your home, you may also have an area where reclining a massage chair to its full length is impossible because of how much space that takes up. Many chairs have been engineered with a space-saving technique that slides the chair forward while it’s reclining, saving you space.
Both chairs talked about below offer this feature.
Who is a Space-Saving Chair Made for?
Space-saving technology was created to shrink the amount of space necessary to fully recline the massage chair. There are various models available at MassageChairPlanet.Com that can recline fully in just a few inches.
This is perfect when you have a smaller room or you simply don’t want your chair to take up so much space. Some massage chairs only require a few inches to recline while some will still need around 12 inches to do so. When you have limited space, this feature is huge. No pun intended.
Now, let’s take a look at what these specific chairs offer.
Titan Pro Jupiter XL
Titan has created an amazing chair that offers 3D L-Track massage and is engineered to work for someone up to 6’6”. There are not many massage chairs for tall people that can also accommodate someone at 5'0", but the Jupiter can. With the combination of 3D technology and an L-Track massage, this large massage chair provides an incredible massage.
3D & L-Track Massage
Robotic massage technology has come a long way since it came out in the 1950s. This chair’s 3D massage helps massage your back with pinpoint accuracy. When paired with an L-Track, a consistent massage with the right pressure from top to bottom is assured. The Jupiter XL was one of the first massage chairs to integrate both technologies into its design.
Designed for Those Up to 6'6"
The Jupiter was created to specifically cater to the taller person, handling those up to 6”6”. Many massage chairs have a maximum extension of 8-9 inches, but the Jupiter has been engineered to extend out an additional 12.6 inches from the default position. The seat base has also been extended by 2”, which gives a grand total of 21” of seat clearance. While this chair is able to accommodate anyone from 5’0” and above, if you have a smaller frame, it might be better to consider a different option.
The Jupiter XL is equipped with advanced Bluetooth so that you can answer calls without interrupting your massage. The built-in speakers in the headrest include a microphone, so you can talk hands-free. You can even play your favorite songs from your Bluetooth device. Plus, the speakers are angled for an encompassing experience with minimal volume.
A massage chair for tall people can take up a lot of valuable space in your home, especially once it is in the recline position. The Jupiter XL only needs 3.2 inches to achieve full recline.
Rolling & Scrapping Foot Massager
The foot massager offers two different types of massage enhancements. There is a wheel that features raised bumps on the outer section that mimics the feel of thumbs massaging the feet. That is paired with a forward-and-back motion with rounded points that move from bridge to heel, front and back. When used with the airbag compression system, you get three different types of massage simultaneously.
Two-Stage Zero Gravity
These zero gravity positions are designed to improve every aspect of your massage and deepen your relaxation, raising your legs above your heart and relieving your joints of gravity's influence to decompress. This all leads to a weightless feeling for a much greater benefit from your massage session.
When you sit in the Jupiter and choose your routine, the back rollers slide up your spine to map the unique curves of your body and the height of your shoulders so that your massage experience caters to your specific shape.
Unique Head Massage
The Jupiter has recreated the standard pillow on massage chairs. Air inflates on the sides of the pillow expanding like an accordion, squeezing the temple region for a soothing head massage.
Positioned on each side of the lumbar area, in the seat, and calves are heating pads. Heat therapy is the perfect complement to a massage. When the body’s temperature rises, blood circulation is increased and loosens your muscles.
Full-Body Air Massage
The Jupiter is packed with airbags from top to bottom. Hip massagers inflate and deflate to create a multitude of different massage actions. When both sides inflate, it compresses the hips inward providing a firm squeeze. In the seat base, airbags prop one side higher than the other for a hip twist. The 20” arm massagers offer four airbags per side to surround your forearm, wrist, and hands, contouring to your shape. The shoulder airbags squeeze in for a compression massage. And lastly, the foot and calf area create a squeezing action with adjustable intensity.
Massage Programs & Styles
Nine pre-set programs deliver several massage combinations. They include Sleeping, Vitality, Relax, Combination, Pain Relief, Muscle Circulation, Waist, and Stretch. There are also five massage styles, including 3D, Kneading, Tapping, Clapping, and Shiatsu. Five levels of speed control are available in addition to three levels of width adjustment. The air intensity can also be adjusted up to five different levels for each independent region.
Now let’s look at the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral.
Osaki OS-PRO Admiral
One of the newest releases from Titan Chair, the Osaki OS-PRO Admiral with LED controls features an L-Track system with Zero Gravity, 16 auto programs, and full-body airbag massage. With the Admiral, the six massage styles, 2” space-saving, lumbar and calf heat, and wonderful 3D massage will provide an incredible experience.
Foot & Calf Massage
The OS-PRO Admiral has three spinning reflexology massage rollers in the foot massager that offer a soothing kneading-style application. As the rollers spin, it stimulates acupressure points, and the airbags inflate to generate a much deeper massage along the bottoms of your feet. It also has ankle grip that holds your feet firmly. Plus, the Admiral has an extendable footrest that can stretch up to 7.1 inches automatically and is controllable through the remote.
The Admiral features zero gravity. Inspired by NASA technology, the zero gravity position provides the perfect setting for a massage, raising your legs above your heart for optimal comfort. When reclined, your weight is supported by the backrest, upping the intensity of your massage and relaxation.
The Admiral has heating pads in the lumbar area and calves that enhance the effectiveness of your massage.
As the roller system massages the neck area, it continues down to the lower back and then onto the glutes and upper hamstrings. As you know, an L-Track offers everything an S-Track does but with a longer reach.
The Admiral performs a body scan to map the crucial areas of your neck and back to ensure correct pressure and alignment. It will detect your shoulder height, and all the settings can be manually adjusted.
Easy-to-Use LCD Remote
The Admiral remote has an easy view screen that displays all active functions where you can select the massage type, intensity, and location for each session.
16 Auto Programs
The Admiral has 16 different auto programs- Office Pro, Traveler, Text-Neck, Lady, AM Routine, Midday Nap, Re-Energize, Shape'n'Tone, Men's Fitness, Elderly Health, Relax, Rejuvenate, Gentle Relief, Stretch, Recover, and Thai.
6 Massage Styles
The Admiral comes with a manual mode so that you can pinpoint a desired massage for a specific area of your body or for a whole-body experience. The Admiral can perform Kneading, Tapping, Kneading &Tapping, Clapping, Rolling, and Shiatsu.
Full Body Airbag Massage
There are multiple airbags throughout the chair that offer a full body massage experience. There are 24 airbags located at the shoulders, arms, lower back, feet, and the calf areas. This compression massage helps increase blood circulation throughout the body to alleviate pain and tension.
The next generation of 3D rollers presents outstanding range and flexibility. The 3D technology allows you to adjust the rollers’ extention out from the backrest. The Admiral offers five levels of 3D intensity control.
The Admiral has Bluetooth technology so that you can enjoy your favorite music and phone calls on high-quality speakers in the headrest. The Admiral also offers preset audio that can help you to relax.
Osaki's innovative design has created a space-saving massage chair that only requires two inches to fully recline.
For even more convenience, you can charge your smartphone, tablet, or USB device right from the chair.
When deciding between these two chairs, the type of massage experience you want will determine which chair is right for you. Both of these chairs offer very similar massages, features, and both provide 3D L-Tracks.
There are a few differences in the head and foot massages, and to honestly choose between the chairs you’ll likely need to test each one out. They are very similar and made by the same manufacturer. You might like the foot massage of one better than the other or the head massage in the Jupiter. You might be exceptionally tall and need the Jupiter or you may want the foot massage of the Admiral.
