Product Review: M-2 Orion Massage Chair Recliner

Aug 13, 2008
We know how important it is to find good information regarding a given product. For this reason we have developed a systematic and comprehensive review process. This process helps take out the bias. Our system consists of a 5 category system to evaluate a massage chair. Each category has equal weight and the value of each category is between 0 to 20 points. All the scores of each category are added up to give an overall rating. Our categories include Warranty & Customer Service, Comfort/Ergonomics, Ease of Use, Features and Massage Therapy. This systematic approach forces us to a disciplined method of evaluating a massage chair to help guide anyone looking at massage chairs. In this review we evaluate the Omega M-2 Orion Massage Chair which is in the entry level price range of $1,500 and under.

Warranty & Customer Service: This category is about the consumer being protected and taking less risk in the transaction. The product is covered by the warranty and customer service is how well the company supports its customers. Omega Massage, manufacturer of the M-2, covers it with the following: 1 year on the frame, 6 months on parts, and 6 months labor and 6 months shipping. This is strong warranty coverage at this price range. What about the customer service side? Our experience has been very positive with Omega. They diagnose quickly, and turn things around in minimal times. We rate the Omega M-2 Orion an 18 in Warranty & Customer.

Comfort & Ergonomics: This category is about how well the massage chair is designed with comfort and fit to your body. These elements are important keys to relaxing while in the chair. The Orion is fairly ergonomic in design. The side arm pads are fully padded and plush. They provide a back pad and a shoulder pillow which is detachable. The chair?s angle of recliner is from 115 degrees to 170 degrees. This is a great range for an entry level chair. The leg rest has a 4 inches extension range. This is good to accommodate taller people and to position the calf massager anywhere on your legs. We give the M-2 a 17 in this category.

Ease of Use: With so much technology being built into massage chairs today, ease of use is a critical concern. If a device is overly complicated, those features just will not get used. This is just a design challenge. The M-2 is well designed and the remote control is simple and easy to use. The remote allows you to choose either automatic or manual massages. Select a manual massage and focus it on a particular part of the back. The manual adjustment levers for the backrest and leg rest are easy to find and use. There is a convenient remote holder underneath the armrest to store the remote when not needed. We give the Omega Orion a 19 for ease of use.

Key Features: The key features of the Orion M-2 massage chair are the swaying massage technique and the seat massage. The Hawaiian or Swaying massage uses gentle flowing strokes to ease and elongate the back muscles. The Swaying massage starts to penetrate deeper into the muscles as it works up and down the spine. This is an effective massage to relax tight muscles. The seat massage has both vibration therapy and an eight massage head system. These rotary massage heads target the buttocks and thighs with a very invigorating massage. Add the vibration therapy and watch the aches and pains melt away from your buttocks and thighs. We give the M-2 Orion an 18 for key features.

Massage Therapy: Just how good is the massage therapy delivered by the massage chair? The M-2 comes with 3 automatic massages. These are timed massages of 5, 10 or 15 minutes. Select from 3 manual massages and select a region of your back with 3 back courses. The M2 has strong manual massages including Kneading, Swaying and Finger Press. The seat massage is very invigorating. It has eight rotary massage heads and a vibration system for the seat. The leg rest has a mechanical kneading system to soothe the legs. With the extendable leg rest, target your thighs, knees or calves. This is a very effective massage chair for its price category. This massage recliner earns an 18 for massage therapy.

How does the Omega M-2 Orion stack up? Overall, our rating of the Omega M-2 Orion is a 90/100. Omega puts some high value features into this entry level massage chair. The swaying massage and the thorough seat massage is a great therapeutic package. The M-2 provides very good strength for effective relief. Omega provides strong warranty protection for the investment in the M-2. This massage recliner comes in a The Orion is a hidden gem. If you are looking for an entry level whole body massage chair, the M-2 Orion is it.
