Trying to decide which high-end massage chair to buy? Both the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid massage chair and the Kahuna SM-9300 massage chair offer a lot of fantastic features and plenty of comfort. But which one is more worthy of your hard-earned money? Does one have a better overall design? Read this comparison review to find out.

What are some Top Features of the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid?

Let us start off by talking about the features offered on the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid massage chair. The Supreme Hybrid certainly looks futuristic, and its features reflect this. Here are our picks for some of the top features of the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid.

The HybriFlex Flexible Massage Track
What truly makes the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid a high-end, top rated massage chair is its HybriFlex Flexible Massage Track. This unique, bendable track presents users with the deepest and most natural muscle stretch available. No other chair on the market right now achieves this feat.

Its L-shaped track stems from the upper shoulder area down to the thighs. The inversion stretch it can give offers users a deeply therapeutic movement aimed at alleviating back pain and pressure.

A Wall-Hugging, Space-Saver Design
The Supreme Hybrid helps you maximize your living space with its space saving design. When reclining, the base actually swivels so that you only need the back of the chair to be 2 inches away from the wall. Other chairs can require much more space, so the Supreme Hybrid truly embraces a space-saving design.

The FullBodyReach™ MultiStroke 6-Roller System
Daiwa came up with a new FullBodyReach MultiStroke 6-Roller System for the Supreme Hybrid. The design actually separates the upper and lower massaging arms. This lets the upper one focus on the shoulders, neck, and upper back, utilizing the 3D rollers. Meanwhile, the lower arm takes care of the mid-back to the thigh area.

Upgraded Controllers​
Upgraded controllers bring the Daiwa Supreme Hybrid to the forefront of massage chair technology. Users can easily reach for the new touch-display remote. There is also a tablet screen that dynamically changes while you are using the chair.

A secondary remote can be found on the armrest console with physical controls that make adjustments with ease. The chair's built-in wireless charging and USB ports offer ways to keep your smartphone charged while you are using the chair.

Full Body Airbag Compression Massage
The Supreme Hybrid comes with a Full Body Airbag Compression Massage design. There are a total of 50 built-in airbags that utilize compression technology in order to massage your shoulders, arms, waist, legs, and feet all at the same time.

What are some Top Features of the Kahuna SM-9300?

    Now that we've talked about some of the best Daiwa Supreme Hybrid features, let's go over those found on the Kahuna SM-9300. Here are some of the top noteworthy features.

    4D Massage Rollers
    4D massage rollers are about as good as it gets in the world of high-end massage chairs.

    Kahuna SM-9300 4D Massage
    The Kahuna SM-9300 is equipped with 8 rollers that are infrared heated and spaced apart just enough to hit all the body's pressure points. This allows you to find your ideal speed and pressure without a hassle.

    Multiple Zero Gravity Positions
    The Kahuna SM-9300's multiple zero gravity positions allow you to find the best reclining position to maximize your comfort. The zero gravity position is ideal for massage therapy because it allows the blood to flow more evenly through your body and encourages your mind to relax.

    Voice Recognition
    Voice recognition helps you do things from starting the chair (by simply saying "Activate Kahuna"), from standby mode to turning the heat on or off at your whim. This reduces your use of the controls and allows you to just focus on relaxing for the duration of your massage.

    Auto Leg Extension
    Are you on the tall side? The auto leg extension will be helpful. It adjusts for longer legs (and back again for the next, shorter user) and helps maximize the chair's ability to properly massage your legs. Users from 5'1" to 6'3" in height and up to 350 pounds can enjoy this incredible Kahuna massage chair.

    Heated Foot Roller Massage
    A heated foot massage at the end of a stressful day sounds nice doesn't it? A thorough foot massage can stimulate blood flow and possibly even help other parts of the body feel better.

    Kahuna SM-9300 Heated Foot Rollers
    The heated foot roller massage can loosen up the tense muscles in your feet and get those soles feeling nice and relaxed after a long day.
