Omega Massage Chairs have made quite a name for themselves over the last few years. They’ve established themselves as a top tier message chair manufacturer, delivering quality and comfort in equal measure
Omega design and manufacture all of their own chairs. They put a great deal of emphasis on functionality and ease of use. Their products might not fit seamlessly into your home decor, but they will provide the best massage you’ll ever get from a chair.
Today we’re looking at their Montage Premiere Massage Chair. At the $$$$ price range it’s in the luxury area for sure. Luckily, Omega has put every effort into ensuring it’s worth every cent.
We’ll start with looking at the most important feature of a massage chair: the actual massage.
The Omega Montage Premiere Massage Chair takes the idea of a head-to-toe massage really seriously. Along with the traditional rollers there’s also an air massage system for your lower body and extremities.
When we say extremities, we mean all of them. Most massage chairs are considered generous if they give you a foot massage. The Omega Montage Premiere Massage Chair takes it a step further by giving you an arm and hand massage. Few massage chairs on the market are this thorough in their massage areas.
You’ll have quite a bit of control over the massage settings on the Omega Montage Premiere Massage Chair. There are five pre-programmed massage settings, labelled Relaxation, Activation, Vitality, Night and Morning. There are also four massage types: kneading, tapping, rolling, and combination knead and tap.
In fact the number four was very popular when Omega designed the Montage Premiere Massage Chair’s different settings. There are:
- Four intensity settings for the massages
- Four back massage courses (Whole Back, Thoracic, Cervical and Lumbar)
- Four width settings for the massage rollers to cover your whole back. Add to that you can manually set the back rollers to get just where you need them.
- Four air pressure levels for the seat and footrest.
- Four manual settings for the air massager. This is what massages your buttocks, thighs, feet, calves, arms and hands
And that’s not all. Just when you think this thing has enough features, it pulls out some more.
You can set a timer for your massage, anywhere from 5-30 minutes, at five minute intervals (5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30). There’s even an in-built MP3 player (with headphones included) that will synch up with your massage in the Music Therapy function.
To top it all off, you can also heat the backrest, seat, and footrest.
Did we miss anything? Actually, yes — the Omega Montage Premiere Massage Chair also fully reclines and has a traction function to stretch your lower body. That probably could’ve gone without saying, as it’s a fairly standard feature. But it just highlights how Omega has thrown in everything they could into one chair.
Ease of Use
Moving on with our Omega Montage Premier Massage Chair review, let’s look at the controls.
With all those features you’d think that controlling the Omega Montage Premiere Massage Chair would be a nightmare. Think again: Omega has made navigating the endless functions as simple and intuitive as you could want.
The handy in-built controller with LCD display makes getting your massage set just the way you need it a breeze. It’s big, bright, easy to read, with nice big buttons you can’t possibly miss. All of the basic functions are clearly labelled. The pre-programmed massages have nice one-touch functionality.
All of the more complex fine-tuning controls are hidden under an easily opened cover. They’re also clearly labelled with pictures and texts. Even with all of the dozens of features and functions, getting what you need is super easy.
This will probably be the only time we’ll have anything remotely negative to say in our Omega Montage Premier Massage Chair review.
Some massage chairs are designed to look at home in a person’s living room. Others look like they belong in an airport waiting lounge. The Omega Montage Premier Massage Chair firmly falls into the latter category.
Now, is it really a bad thing? Not necessarily. It’s just going to stick out like a sore thumb and take up quite a bit of space. But for the features in it and the quality it provides, it could look like a brick and be the size of a car and we’d still probably love it.
Warranty and other things
Omega has a pretty impressive warranty on their Montage Premier Massage Chair. The frame is covered for 5 years, the parts and labor are covered for 3 years, and there’s 1 year free for parts shipping. For the first 90 days you also get in-home technician servicing.
So to wrap up our Omega Montage Premier Massage Chair review:
The massage options are second to none. From the pre-programmed settings to the manual controls, there’s nothing this chair won’t give you. Any type of massage or therapy you want, it seems to have it. It’s crazy that they’ve fit so many features into one product.
The special features, like the Music Therapy and seat warming, are brilliant touches. Getting a massage literally from head to toe is something you only get in the luxury end of massage chairs, and Omega still does it better than most.
It’s comfortable. It’s versatile. It’s effective. It’s the best massage you’ll ever get without having someone’s oiled hands rubbing all over you.
Yes, it’s in the luxury end, and therefor a little bit on the pricey side. You’re always going to pay a premium for this type of quality. But as we said at the beginning of this Omega Montage Premier Massage Chair review, it’s worth every cent they’re asking for it.
If you’re in the market for a luxury massage chair, this is the one for you. And if it’s a bit out of your price range, save a little first, then get it. Your body will thank you.
