Massage Chair Comparison: Osaki OS Pro Admiral vs Osaki OS 4000T
Osaki massage chairs are among the most popular brands we offer. Today, we'll be discussing 2 of our most popular models, the OS 4000T and OS Pro Admiral. Both of these chairs are very popular with consumers and we'll take a deeper look at why in this comparison.
A Brief Introduction: Osaki 4000T vs. Pro Admiral
Each of these Osaki chairs offers an impressive range of features. The best-selling S-track Osaki OS 4000T massage chair bases each massage on a computerized body scan, ensuring that your massage is tailored to your body.
With the 4000T you can choose from two pressure-relieving zero-gravity positions. 2D massage rollers and 46 airbags help deliver shiatsu, swedish, tapping, rolling, clapping, kneading, or combo massages, while a heated lumbar region helps you fully relax.
If you're looking for a premium experience, the Osaki OS Pro Admiral massage chair might be more of what you're looking for. This L-track chair features 3D rollers which allows for intensity adjustments. It has 24 airbags and also offers a zero-gravity position.
The Admiral also offers extras like a USB charging port, Bluetooth speakers, multi-language support, and an LCD remote. It's a more expensive chair than the 4000T but if these features are important to you it can be worth it.

Both the Pro Admiral and the 4000T start your massage with a computerized body scan. The scan helps to better target key muscle groups while avoiding uncomfortable mistakes. But from there, the massage experience is very different.

- Osaki OS Pro Admiral Pros and Cons
The Pro Admiral is an L-track massage chair. This type functions similarly, but the L-shaped track extends down to your glutes and hamstrings.
The longer track leads to a more complete massage that is ideal if you suffer from overly tight hamstrings or just want a more thorough massage.
The Osaki OS Pro Admiral lets you choose between six massage styles and 15 auto-massage programs. The styles you can choose from are shiatsu, K&T, clapping, rolling, kneading, and tapping. The auto programs are as follows:

- Office Pro
- Midday Nap
- AM Routine
- Shape n Tone
- Men's Fitness
- Elderly Health
The Pro Admiral is a 3D massage chair, meaning that the rollers can move up & down, left & right, or in & out. The in and out motion makes a massage feel like a natural one given by a person.
The chair's 3D technology also allows you to select from five intensity levels, offering you an impressively customized massage experience. For your feet, the Pro Admiral uses three reflexology rollers.
Both chairs incorporate airbags for a full-body massage. The Osaki Pro Admiral offers 24 airbags. The airbags massage your calves, feet, and arms, and both chairs allow you to adjust airbag intensity.
Both massage chairs incorporate heat into your massage for full-body relaxation. Heated massage can be a great way to relax and wind down after a long day.
A USB charging port lets you charge your device while you enjoy your massage. And if you'd like your massage to be accompanied by some relaxing music, try using the Bluetooth speakers.
Lastly, the Pro Admiral's space-saving technology makes it easier for you to use the chair in smaller spaces. Because it moves slightly forward when reclining, this chair only requires an extra two inches of space to fully recline.
Both chairs are made of easy-to-clean, durable synthetic leather. And each comes in a few colors. The Pro Admiral comes in brown, black and silver, taupe, and grey.

- Osaki OS 4000T Pros and Cons
One of the first things to consider before purchasing a massage chair is the track type you prefer. The 4000T is an S-track chair, which means that the rollers are arranged in a sinusoidal (wave-like) formation.
The S-track formation follows your natural spinal curve and massages from your neck down to your lower back. While the rollers do not extend to hamstrings and glutes, the 4000T uses seat vibration to help relax these areas.
The ability to choose your massage technique is one of the most exciting things about using a massage chair. The 4000T lets you choose between the following types of massage techniques:
The 4000T is a 2D massage chair which is the most common type of massage chair on the market. With a 2D chair, rollers move up, down, left, or right. Though it doesn't feel as close to a massage from a person, the 4000T still delivers a quality massage.
The 4000T also uses two rows of reflexology foot rollers. When used in combination with each chair's foot-level airbags, these rollers help deliver a deep and relaxing foot massage.
Both chairs incorporate airbags for a full-body massage. The 4000T incorporates 46 airbags. The airbags massage your calves, feet, and arms, and allows you to adjust airbag intensity.
Both massage chairs incorporate heat into your massage for full-body relaxation in the lumbar region.
The Osaki OS 4000T also includes a full-size controller mounted on the chair in addition to a remote.
This controller is especially helpful for users who have impaired vision or worry about losing a remote.
Both chairs are made of easy-to-clean, durable synthetic leather. You can choose to purchase the 4000T in black, brown, or taupe.
- Computer body scan technology
- 2 zero gravity positions
- Foot massage rollers
- Full-size controller with wireless remote control
- Automatic leg scan
- Lumbar heat
- 2D massage rollers
- User Height Range: 5'2" - 6'2"
- Maximum User Weight: 260 lbs.
- Takes approx. one hour to assemble
- User cannot be taller than 6'2" or shorter than 5'2"
- User cannot weigh more than 260 lbs.
Both the Pro Admiral and the 4000T are capable of delivering effective and invigorating massages. If you're looking for specialized massage options, the Pro Admiral might be a better fit. Similarly, if you want a chair that can also massage glutes and hamstrings, the Pro Admiral is probably the one for you.
On the other hand, if you don't want to spend the extra money and like what is offered with the 4000T (a lot of people do) then this may be the chair for you.
The choice is ultimately up to you, but it's always best to physically sit in each massage chair and try before buying, if at all possible. We're happy to make recommendations but nothing takes the place of you actually trying out a chair to make sure you like it before purchasing.
