OSAKI and COZZIA are two well-known brands that offer massage chairs with different features and qualities. The Cozzia brand is leagues above Osaki brand massage chairs.
The Key Difference between Osaki and Cozzia Massage Chairs:
OSAKI massage chairs are recognized for their advanced features and innovative technologies. They often incorporate features like 3D massage, zero gravity positioning, air compression massage, and body scanning technology.
COZZIA massage chairs, on the other hand, are reputed for their luxurious design and premium materials. They often offer features such as zero gravity positioning, heat therapy, air compression massage, and Bluetooth connectivity.
In this article, we will do a detailed comparison between Osaki and Cozzia brand massage chairs considering key factors such as Mass types, Techniques, Airbags, Premium features, Price, and Warranty.
Cozzia vs Osaki Massage Chairs [Key Differences]
1. Massage Types and Massage Techniques
A closer look at the specs reveals that Cozzia models have an edge over Osaki when it comes to the range of massage techniques, types, and technology in general.
Osaki’s OP 4D Xrest is suitable for a variety of massage techniques in different areas of the body. These include rolling, kneading, tapping, vibration, and compression. Key areas include the neck, hands, back, buttocks, and calves.
The chair also comes with a set of foot rollers, which deliver deep and superficial rolling to the soles of both feet, thus offering something that close to a form of massage known as foot reflexology.
Additionally, the chair comes with a muscle tension detection mechanism. This allows it to deliver specific point massage using its rollers, which is quite similar to Deep tissue and Shiatsu massage.
These techniques set the OP 4D Xrest and other Osaki models better suited to Swedish and Deep tissue Massage, which typically incorporate these techniques to handle different body areas.
Like the OP 4D Xrest, Cozzia’s Qi XE Pro also provides rolling, kneading, tapping, and compression massage techniques. A set of foot rollers also deliver rolling massage to the soles of the feet for a similar effect to foot reflexology massage techniques.
However, the Qi XE Pro proves to be superior when it comes to delivering Shiatsu massage. The reason is that the chair comes with acupuncture point detection technology, which detects up to 36 acupuncture points.
Acupuncture points are critical as far as Shiatsu massage is concerned as they are used as a reference to pinpoint specific areas on the skin. Once detected, the information is fed into the system and used to deliver precise Shiatsu massage on specific points of the body.
In the end, this leads us to two key points with respect to the suitability of the two brands for different massage types:
- Both brands provide great options if you’re looking to get something that offers Swedish, deep, and foot reflexology.
- Cozzia offers the best option if you are looking to get something that offers the most accurate and effective Shiatsu massage in addition to mainstream Swedish and deep tissue massage.
Cozzia models come with more advanced airbag systems to deliver compression and kneading massage on various parts of the body. This is evident if we get into the number of airbags that come with various models in all price ranges.
If you consider the high-end price range, you’ll notice that the Qi XE Pro comes with 64 airbags while the OP 4D Xrest comes with 46.
In the lower price range, Cozzia continues its dominance; with the Zen 3D Pro offering 48 airbags as the Osaki Encore features 26.
3. Flexibility and Adjustable Features
Generally, both Osaki and Cozzia feature models with great adjustability feature to accommodate a wide range of body sizes. However, Osaki pushes its boundaries a little further than Cozzia.
All top Osaki models, i.e., the OP 4D Xrest and Maestro, come with the automatic Shoulder adjustment feature.
On the other hand, most Cozzia models, including the Qi XE Pro and the Qi SE, lack the Shoulder adjustment feature though they come with adjustable foot and leg rests. This allows Osaki chairs to accommodate a wider range of body sizes.
4. Additional Premium Features
When it comes to additional tech perks, Cozzia’s models are generally better-stocked compared to Osaki.
The most advanced models compete evenly. However, there’s a notable difference when we consider mid and low-end models from each brand.
A comparison between Osaki’s Maestro and Cozzia’s Qi SE should furnish us with a great example. The Maestro’s most impressive complimentary features include Heat Therapy-enabled rollers, body scanning, quick control keys, space-saving technology, USB, and Touchscreen functionality.
On the other hand, the Qi SE features a lot more in addition to what the Maestro offers as premium features. These include Chromotherapy, Voice control, child protection safety lock, overheat protection, and footrest inductive sensors.
5. Auto Programs
Cozzia proves a better option when it comes to Preset programs.
This makes it a more convenient option, as a broader range of preset programs means more customizability to fit specific individual needs.
Cozzia’s finest model, the Qi XE Pro offers up to 64 programs while Osaki’s OP 4D Xrest offers 46.
Going down the price ladder, Cozzia’s Qi SE offers 60 programs while Osaki offers 32. The difference also extends to low-end models. Cozzia’s Zen 3D Pro comes with 48 programs while the Encore comes with 26.
Surprisingly, Cozzia is more affordable compared to Osaki.
Cozzia’s models range from $1,900 to $11,500 while Osaki models fall within $1,500-$15,000.
The difference is apparent if we closely consider the mid and high-price range categories from each brand.
Cozzia’s most expensive chair, the Qi XE Pro costs around $11,500 while Osaki’s OP Xrest goes at $15,000. The same trend is also apparent if we consider the best mid-range options. Cozzia’s Qi SE is priced at $9,500 while the Maestro falls at around $11,000.
Osaki offers slightly better warranty terms compared to Cozzia.
All Osaki models come with a 3-year warranty period for parts and structural defects. On the other hand, Cozzia models come with a 2–3-year warranty period for parts and in-home servicing.

Which Brand Massage Chair is Good for You – COZZIA or OSAKI?
The Cozzia brand is a clear winner against Osaki as it proves to be a better option in most relevant features.
Cozzia simply offers better models when it comes to massage types/techniques, airbag systems, additional features, auto programs as well as prices.
When it comes to specific models, I would settle for Cozzia’s Qi XE Pro as my first choice if I had a high-end budget ($11,000-$15,000) at my disposal.
The reason is that the model offers equally effective massage technology, a wider range of massage techniques, and a more robust airbag system compared to its direct competitor from Osaki (Osaki’s OP 4D Xrest).
Furthermore, the QI XE Pro comes at a significantly lower cost compared to the 4D Xrest.
My second pick would definitely be Cozzia’s Qi SE; that’s if my budget was limited to the $9,000-$11,000 range.
Despite costing way less than Osaki’s best mid-range model (Maestro), the Qi SE proves better in almost all the key features; including the range of massage types and techniques, airbag systems, and additional tech features.
Lastly, the Zen 3D Pro (Cozzia) would be my obvious choice if my budget was limited to $5,000-$8,000 based on the same reasons I would have in the mid and higher-price categories.
The Zen 3D Pro is just miles ahead of its Osaki competitor (Encore) in terms of massage roller technology, extra tech features, and airbags systems.
