Another New Addition To Osaki’s Already Epic Lineup!
Today we look at one of Osaki’s newest chairs for 2019; step forth the Pro Soho! An incredibly well designed chair that’s both fashionable and produces solid results.
There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to features, so let’s jump right in!
Osaki OS Pro SOHO 4D Massage Chair: 7 Features To Know Of!
#1 4D Rollers With A 32” Track!
In case you didn’t know, rollers are the most important component to a massage chair. In many ways it’s the set of rollers that determines how good/bad a massage chair performs! That being said, there’s 3 types of rollers you can find on massage chairs today. These are:
Now you know why the Pro Soho carries such a hefty price tag. It’s mostly because of the advanced 4D roller system! Is it worth paying extra $$$ for a 4D chair?
If high intensity massage is not as important to you, you can probably get away with a less expensive 2D or 3D chair. However, if you want to experience the best a massage chair has to offer, then you definitely want a 4D chair no question!
The 4D rollers on this chair can traverse a total distance of 32” from neck to back. Osaki have designed the rollers to tightly trace or contour the spine’s natural “S” shape. In the massage chair industry, we often refer to this as “S-Track”.
Note: The roller intensity can be varied to 5 different levels. The higher the intensity/speed, the deeper the massage!
#2 Not The Best Chair For Tall Users!
Probably one of my least favorite things about the Pro Soho is its inability to comfortably accommodate taller and heavier users.
Not the most versatile of chairs unfortunately. While this isn’t something that impacts me (I’m 5’3 ft and 110 lbs), I do realize that it could impact most of you, especially if you’re nearing 6 feet and over! If you are taller than average, I recommend you strongly consider other options!
#3 Next Generation Airbag System
The Osaki Pro Soho comes fitted with a total of 30 airbags strategically placed in various areas around the chair (arms, calves, shoulders, glutes, feet etc.).
Airbags generally serve 2 main purposes:
In layman terms, it’s a fancy way of saying more is less! When manufacturers talk about next gen airbags, they’re basically saying the chair has fewer airbags with the same coverage and a reduced power consumption (as a result of fewer valves and pumps).
#4 Extendable Foot Ottoman That Can Be Rotated When Not In Use!
This one had me stumped, and here’s why:
As mentioned earlier, the Pro Soho can only fit individuals from 5’0-6’0 ft., so not quite sure what purpose an extendable foot ottoman serves, but in any case!
What’s neat about this chair, however, is that the foot ottoman can be rotated inwards when the calf and foot massager is not in use, so that the end result is a standard foot ottoman!
I love this feature for 2 reasons:
#5 Heat Therapy—Heated Rollers & Calves!
This is by far one of my favorite features in the new Osaki chairs! (FYI, this feature is also present in Osaki’s high end Pro Maestro).
There’s 2 forms of heat therapy present in the Pro Soho:
More manufacturers need to take note and learn from Osaki on this one! Heated rollers are a genius innovation!
#6 Comes With 6 Automatic Massage Routines!
For a chair that costs $4,499 (current pricing on massage chair deals), 6 auto modes is a little disappointing. To be honest, I was expecting more. In any case, the 6 auto routines are:
Note: Each of the 6 auto modes can be selected directly from the remote control.
#7 Other Noteworthy Features (Space Saving Recline & Bluetooth Speakers)
2 other noteworthy features worth mentioning are space saving recline and Bluetooth compatible speakers.

Osaki OS Pro SOHO 4D Massage Chair Pros & Cons
How Does The Pro SOHO Stack Up Against Similar 4D Massage Chairs?
The best way to gauge a chair’s performance is by comparing it to similar chairs in the market. This not only provides a price reference, but it also helps you see a chair’s strengths and weaknesses. In this particular instance, we will be comparing the Pro Soho to another Osaki chair, the 100% Japanese manufactured and designed 4D Pro JP Premium, as well as the APEX Pro Regent.

“Should I Buy The Pro SOHO?”
Is the Pro Soho worth $4,499, and should you buy it?
All in all, the 4D Pro JP Premium is a fantastic chair. The fact that it’s 100% designed and engineered in Japan by one of the best massage chair names (Fujiiryoki) is more than enough reason to buy it! If you went on to look at price, you’re not going to find a 4D chair for $3,999, that too with a 5 year warranty!
Don’t get me wrong, the Pro Soho is an awesome chair. It’s just the pricing that doesn’t quite make sense to me. It might be priced this way because it’s a new chair only released a couple months ago, so maybe a few months down the road the price drops, and that definitely impacts my final recommendation. In any case, my recommendation for now stands, and that is to instead go for the all Japanese 4D Pro JP Premium!
Leave Me A Comment If You Agree/Disagree!
It’s always nice to hear from you guys! It’s interesting to see how we all have differing opinions on how one chair is better than another. That being said, leave me a comment letting me know what your thoughts are on the Pro Soho. Buy or pass?
