The warranty covers the massage chair and customer service is how well the product is supported once purchased. The M-2 Orion has 1 year on the frame, 6 months on parts, and 6 months labor and shipping for 6 months. This is one of the best warranty coverages for an entry level chair. Customer service from Omega is solid, with quick turnaround and great technical competence. We give the 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 in mind. 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 recline angle of the chair is from 115 degrees to 170 degrees which is a large range. 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.
East of Use: A product needs to be intuitive and easy to use for consumers. The remote control is simple and has full controls for the back, seat and leg rest. The remote also controls the calf massage, seat vibration and seat massage. Select from 3 timed auto programs and 3 back courses. The M-2 has a manual leg rest and backrest adjustments. The manual levers are in places that are easy to access, but it takes a time or two to get used to. The good thing is the hydraulics on the manual leg rest and backrest raise them, so the user only has to lean them back. Our rating for this massage chair recliner is 19 in this category.
Key Features: What are the key features of the Orion M-2 massage chair? This chair comes with the very relaxing sway massage which is based on Hawaiian massage. Hawaiian massage is known for its flowing strokes and swaying motion. There is thorough back coverage with the back massage and the Sway massage penetrates deeper and deeper around the back. This massage chair recliner comes with an eight massage head system for the buttocks and thighs. These eight massage heads provide an invigorating massage. An extra seat cushion is provided to moderate the penetration of the seat massage. Coupled with vibration therapy in the seat, the M-2 has a very good seat massage. The Omega M-2 Orion earns 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 with the eight rotary massage heads and the 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.
The Omega M-2 Orion does very well in our evaluation. The total score for the M-2 Orion is a 90/100. We are impressed with the massage therapy for this price range. Omega has concentrated on getting the massage therapy effective and still hit the price point for an entry level massage chair. There is strong warrant protection for the consumer.
