Kahuna SM-7300 Review

by maru | Last Updated: March 3, 2019

Executive Summary

The Kahuna SM-7300 is a feature-rich chair that has a mid-tier price tag. Apart from core features like zero gravity and lumbar heating, it’s got innovative features like the Yoga and Athlete auto programs, the 6-roller system, and a hybrid S/L track (i.e. it combines the two most common roller systems). It is particularly recommended for heavy-set people.

Pros

Core Features Are Present

As you can see from the features section, the SM-7300 has all the features you’d normally want from a massage chair like zero gravity, air-cell massage, heating, and you’ve even got space-saving technology.

Has Specific Features That Target Pain Sufferers

Chronic pain is no joke and many people turn to buying massage chairs for their homes in order to get some relief and to be able to save up on expensive treatments or professional massage therapy sessions. We particularly like the Yoga stretch program on the Kahuna chairs because it stretches your body out in a way that relieves back, neck, and shoulder pain.

We also particularly like the Athlete and Pain Relief programs on this model.

Lastly, the lumbar heating is also a plus for its therapeutic effects.

Mid-Tier Price Tag

While not a budget chair like the very popular Real Relax Favor 03 -- this chair can be considered mid-tier. Three thousand dollars seems to be a sweet spot for both buyers and manufacturers alike.

Now With Upgrades

Kahuna is a reliable company that we can say many good things about, unlike some fly-by-night massage chair distributors out there. One thing we’ve observed that they do well is to listen to customers.

Due to some complaints coming in from the first wave of buyers (more on this in the cons section below), Kahuna has instituted some upgrades to the original 7300 design.

These include:

Good Customer Service

Kahuna has its customer support base in the US. They can be reached by email or by telephone during office hours. You can call or reach out to them if you have questions about your warranty or general questions about your chair. Many customers have shared how customer support has been able to resolve their problems for them.

Cons

Less Than Stellar Performance

On paper, the Kahuna SM-73oo has amazing features and an affordable price point. After all, it boasts additional rollers, a hybrid track, and some noteworthy preset programs.

However, the actual massage experience is disappointing to some buyers. Recurring critical feedback are as follows:

LED Lights Cannot Be Turned Off

The LED lights are supposed to prettify the chair and for some people, this works for them. For others though (like me), small as they are, the LED lights are a painful visual distraction especially when you just want a calming and soothing massage in a room softly lit up by a beautiful Himalayan salt lamp. Sadly, these LED lights cannot be turned off so if you find them harsh and distracting, you’re out of luck.

Only One Zero Gravity Setting

It is mystifying because most of the Kahuna chairs that we reviewed have 2 to 3 zero gravity positions. This model though only has one. Still, it’s better than nothing.

Lumbar Heating Cannot Be Adjusted

Heat being what it is, it would’ve been ideal if the intensity of the heat could be adjusted. Some people have varying degrees of tolerance to heat. Also, there are some days where we need more or less heat depending on room and body temperature or pain levels.

Conclusion

The Kahuna SM-7300 is a massage chair that sounds good on paper but falls somewhat short on actual performance. Its manufacturer did great by applying upgrades to some of the features that received the most complaints though and for that, it gets brownie points.

The SM-7300 has an overwhelming number of positive reviews on its product pages so you will need to apply discernment when checking out these reviews. It’s not just one person who had buyer’s regret after purchasing this chair online because of these same positive reviews.

If you are going to buy this chair, we highly recommend that you try it out in person. Find a showroom that has this same model. Even if it didn’t work for others, it might be a good fit for you.

Even if we can’t recommend this model with confidence, here are other Kahuna variants that we think are more value for money.
