• Custom Saving Memory Function
When it comes to the custom saving memory function, the kahuna LM6800s wins the match. The Kahuna LM6800 does not feature a custom saving memory function. But, the kahuna LM6800s offers a custom-saving memory function.
The custom saving memory function is helpful if you love to massage in your way. It allows you to save customized massage settings for your massage. If you love to have a custom massage, then this feature allows you to save that custom massage setting.
With this function, you do not need to customize your massage every time. After saving the massage, you only need to select it when you want to have your special massage. In kahuna LM6800, you have to customize your massage every time.
• Massage Intensity
Both kahuna massage chairs allow you to adjust the beneficial massage intensity. Some people like more intense massage, and some likes smooth massage. These massage chairs let you set the intensity according to your comfort.
The number of massage intensity levels is as necessary as massage intensity. The more levels of massage intensity allow you to get more comfortable massage according to your needs.
There are three intensity levels in the Kahuna LM6800 massage chair. Most of the massage chair comes with three levels of intensity low, medium and high. But, the kahuna LM6800s offers five massage intensity levels.
There are five levels of roller speed adjustments and five airspeed adjustment levels. The kahuna LM6800s looks better than the LM6800. Am I right? Again the winner is kahuna LM6800s is the winner VS LM6800.
• Rolling Massage
Both kahuna LM6800 and kahuna LM6800s comes with L-track rolling system. The l-track rolling system is new to the market. But, it is much better than the S-track rolling system. The S-track rolling system covers the area from your neck to your lower back.
But, the L-track system will massage from your neck to your hamstrings. The L-track is extended by 50% than the S-track rolling system. It provides you a full-body massage. A full-body massage chair must have this L-track rolling system.
There are four rollers in the LM6800s massage chair. The Kahuna LM6800 also has 4 rollers. This is also known as a quad-roller setup. With these rollers, both massage chairs can give effective kneading, knocking, and tapping massages.
Both massage chairs come with the same rolling tracks and rollers. Therefore, both are winners for the best rolling massage.
• Acupressure Points
Most massage chairs only target acupressure points in your feet. But, there are also some pressure points on your arms. The acupressure points are designed to target points on your arm and body.
The new kahuna LM6800s massage chair comes with these acupressure points. Not only for legs, but it also has acupoint nodes to target pressure points on your arm. As I said most massage chairs cannot target pressure points on your arms.
Unfortunately, the Kahuna LM6800 does not have acupressure points even for your feet. Therefore the winner is the Kahuna LM6800s massage chair VS LM6800 for acupressure points.
• Heating Therapy
Well, both kahuna massage chairs come with heating therapy. Heating therapy is also an essential feature in massage chairs. It helps to relieve back pain and improves your blood flow.
The kahuna massage chairs have heating therapy for your legs as well. It is also helpful if you are suffering from leg pain. Both models provide the same heating function on your feet and back. Therefore it is a tie.
• Bluetooth Technology
If you want to enjoy music while having an excellent massage then Bluetooth technology is for you. Some massage chair comes with this Bluetooth technology. The kahuna LM6800s is one of those massage chairs.
However, it has nothing to do with the quality of massage. The kahuna LM6800s massage chair comes with Bluetooth speakers on both sides. This allows you to hear you’re relaxing sound while doing massage.
But, again the Kahuna LM6800 massage chair does not have these extra features. If you want this extra feature then you should go with the Kahuna LM6800s massage chair.
• Special Feature
The Kahuna LM6800 comes with a feature that LM6800 doesn’t. The Kahuna LM6800 has SH-chiro therapy. It can provide you shiatsu, kneading, rolling, tapping, and tapping & kneading massage.
With SH-chiro therapy, the massage chair will unlock nerve energy. It will allow the nerve to flow better down to your spine and throughout your entire body. The LM6800s does not have any feature like this. Therefore, the winner of this time Kahuna LM6800 massage chair VS LM6800S.
• Airbag Massage
Again it will be a tie because both massage chairs come with 36 airbags. They come with air-cell massage technology that covers your entire body. Both massage chairs use air compression and decompression for a full-body massage.
These 36 airbags will massage your shoulders, hips, thighs, and arms. The airbag massage is different than kneading or other types of massages. It helps you to improve blood and lymph flow. The airbag massage can also reduce swelling in your muscles.
• Dimensions and Weight
The kahuna LM6800s is heavier than the LM6800. Its dimensions are 52×31×48 inches and its weight is 228lbs. On the other side, the dimensions of the Kahuna LM6800 massage chair are 46×31×48 and the weight is 189lbs.
If you want a lightweight massage chair then we will recommend the Kahuna LM6800 massage chair. The kahuna LM6800s massage chair is bulky and takes more space in your home. If you have enough space in your home then you can go with LM6800s. If we consider the size then the Kahuna LM6800 will be the winner VS LM6800S.
Kahuna LM6800 vs. LM6800s – Final Verdict
There are lots of features are missing in the Kahuna LM6800 massage chair. However, it has some features like yoga stretching, and Sh-chiro therapy. But, it does not have Bluetooth technology, acupressure points, and custom saving feature.
On the other side, the kahuna LM6800s comes with all these advanced features at the same price. It also offers 12 auto programs while the LM6800 has only six auto programs. Therefore the kahuna LM6800s will be the winner.
However, both massage chairs are the best according to their price. You can choose any one of these two kahuna massage chairs. But, we will recommend kahuna LM6800s. So that’s it for Kahuna LM6800 VS LM6800S. See you in the next article…
