iJoy Massage Chair Reviews – iJoy 2580
iJoy-2580 is not a high-end massage chair and does not offer plethora of advanced massage options either. But how did it become a preferred choice of people with significant rating/reviews and good number of sales?
Let’s see it this way,
Just image you are sitting in your regular sofa or a recliner, watching TV and relaxing after a hectic day. That’s regular stuff, right? But now add massage functionality to your recliner sofa and imagine the additional level of relaxation it brings in. And this is iJoy-2580 Massage Chair.
Auto Massage Programs
15 minute with auto shut-off feature
Kneading, Percussion and Compression
Up to 180 degrees
Auxiliary Power outlet
Yes, for charging both mobiles and laptops
Mere 88 lbs
Roller wheels for easy movement
Leg and Foot Rollers
Comes fully assembled
The pricing of iJoy2580 is reasonable when you compare it with other low-end massage chairs and their feature-set.
The biggest advantage with iJoy-2580 is its durability. Several user reviews suggest that it can last up to a decade if maintained the right way.
Control Panel Features
3 Auto Massage Programs
There are 3 auto massage programs that come preset on control panel.
- Back massage
- Neck and shoulder massage
- Lower back massage
Each of the above auto massage programs come with 15 minute timers post which the massage function shuts-off automatically.
Apart from auto massage functions, the control panel also offers you to manually select the type of massage. This has a wide range of options,
Area: Either upper back or lower back
Roller Position: Rolling or Zonal
Kneading – For muscle relaxation
Compression – press and release muscles
Percussion – for strengthening tissue muscles
This is one major advantage with iJoy-2580 massage chair. With just touch of a button, the chair auto tilts all the way up to 180 degrees thus achieving near flat position.
The power recline makes it relatively easy to achieve accurate inclination level which is otherwise mostly tiresome to manually recline to desired angles.
Although there is no massage adjustability from the control panel but it has removable softening pads on the back cushion surface. Insert the soft pads and the massage intensity mellows down but for higher intensity just remove the soft pads.
The massage intensity is again proportional to recline inclination. Higher the inclination, greater the massage intensity.
Cup Holder & Auxiliary Power Outlet
While the control panel has been embedded on the left armrest, the right armrest comes with a cup holder. Large enough to hold size cups, glasses or medium size bottles.
But the biggest takeaway is the power outlet. Yes, iJoy-2580 comes with a power outlet on the right side making it convenient for you to charge your mobile or laptop while enjoying your daily massage.
Roller Wheels & Weight Advantage
iJoy-2580 is the lightest massage chair in the breed. It weighs mere 88 lbs and additionally comes with wheel base, making it easy to move it to any corner in your home.
The biggest positive is the durability. This is what sets it apart from other ordinary low-end massage chairs.
As per several user reviews, this massage chair has lasted for nearly a decade while others, even premium ones, lifespan hardly touches 5 years.
Most of them start showing tantrums in 2 years but iJoy-2580 withstands for a very long time thus justifying your investment.
On the downside, there are a couple features that you need to know.
Height is one grey area for this chair. The seating is low and you bend your back and knees to sit on it. This is not a choice for people who suffer from knee strains, especially elders.
It’s not like your office chair but it is very similar to car seating where you need to bend your knees to reach your seat. As we do get in and out of our car multiple times in a day, sitting down on this chair should really not be a concern.
Not For Tall People
There is absolutely no exception to this. iJoy-2580 is best suitable for people who are up to 5 feet 10 inches. Anything above that, you need to check for other options.
No Foot Rollers – Sold Separate
You cannot expect foot roller at least at this price. As I told you in the introduction, it is just an extension to your regular recliner chair with some perfect massage functionality cover neck, shoulders, upper back and lower back.
But if you really need foot and leg massagers as well, you can rather buy them separately. Best is to buy them from Human Touch itself to avoid compatibility issues.
This is perhaps the biggest advantage of choosing iJoy-2580 as it comes fully assembled. You need not worry about tiresome assembly process, reading through manual, watching videos or paying for assembly (white glove delivery).
iJoy-2580 Comes with 2-Year limited warranty
