Compared to Other Chairs

A Katana 700 has an L-Track design, as opposed to OSAKI OS-4000T which is the main competitor. In contrast to its main competitors in the budget segment Inner Balance Wellness Jin 2.0 and OS-4000 models, Katana 700 uses a Shiatsu Sensei Massage Mechanism, which delivers soothing shiatsu massage to the neck and shoulders, low back, glutes, and hamstrings.


See Price
The Katana 700 massage chair offers a variety of advanced features not available on the OSAKI OS-4000T. Most notably, it has Bluetooth Connectivity which allows you to connect to your mobile devices and stream music, videos, or other media during your massage session. Moreover, it offers a much stronger massage with 43 Massage Stroke Length compared to the OSAKI OS-4000T’s 30 Massage Stroke Length. All these features make the Katana 700 a superior choice for those looking for an advanced and comfortable massage chair experience. Furthermore, Katana
700 comes with an additional Cooling Air Massage system to give you a more calming and relaxing massage. With all these features, the Katana 700 is certainly a great budget-friendly model for anyone wanting a luxurious massage chair experience.

What Do Users Say About Katana 700 Massage Chair?

“I like that you can adjust the airbag pressure, speed, and squeeze. My shoulders are always sore, so it pushes a little hard there, but that’s the only thing I don’t like about it.”

“Aside from the quality of the chair and the massage features: rollers, airbags, foot massage, heated lower back, and Bluetooth, I am very impressed with it. Despite the fact that this chair has a lot of potential, it can be difficult to unlock its full potential because of the controller and its programs. First, the controller buttons are difficult to see without bright lights—which is not usually the lighting situation for a massage. The lack of a touchscreen saved money, but it makes it difficult to operate. In addition, the preset massage programs do not seem to be as accurate as they seem to be. For example, the lower back program seems to have the best effect on the neck. Additionally, the chair has frustratingly limited manual controls. In addition to being clunky and non-intuitive to operate, the manual programs don’t even provide the range you know the chair has. The rollers can’t be manually adjusted to go as high on your neck or as low on your glutes as the preset programs. There is no phone app for this chair that would allow you to access and program all its functions.”
