Comparison: Booster Pro 3 vs Theragun PRO

Amplitude

The amplitude (also known as stroke length) describes how far the massage head travels from its starting position into your muscle. While both devices can provide you with a percussive massage experience, the Theragun PRO undoubtedly wins this category with an amplitude of 16 mm.

Winner: Theragun PRO

12 mm

16 mm

Force

When it comes to the stall force, the Theragun PRO is one of the best massage guns on the market. It takes an impressive 60 lbs for the motor to reach its limits, almost double the Booster Pro 3. Unsurprisingly, the Theragun PRO is one of the most popular percussive devices among professional athletes who value its power.

Winner: Theragun PRO

33.0 lbs

60.0 lbs

Frequency & Speed Levels

Despite its four different speed levels compared to five for the Theragun PRO, the percussions per minute (ppm) of the Booster Pro 3 can be adjusted in a wider range from as low as 1300 up to 3300. Therefore, this round of the Booster vs Theragun comparison goes to the challenger.

Winner: Booster Pro 3

1300 to 3300 ppm, 4 levels

1750 – 2400 ppm, 5 levels

Connectivity

Theraguns and Hypervolts are the only massage guns that can be linked with your smartphone via Bluetooth. This allows you to follow recovery routines created by professional athletes and health experts, analyze your sessions, and more. The Booster Pro 3 does not have this capability yet.

Winner: Theragun PRO

Yes

Battery

With the stall force being almost double, it comes as to no surprise that the battery life of the Theragun PRO would be significantly less than for the Booster Pro 3. At its lowest frequency and low resistance, the latter can run for up to six hours until you need to find a plug socket.

So, easy win for the challenger, right? Not so fast! The Theragun PRO comes with an additional battery, meaning you can use one battery while charging the other and thereby extending the usage time. Still, at five hours total, it is still a bit less than the Booster Pro 3.

Winner: Booster Pro 3

Up to 6 hours

Up to 2.5 hours

Noise

The higher power obviously also has a negative effect on the noise level generated by the Theragun PRO. But while the Booster Pro 3 with its 55 decibels (dB) is about a loud as an electric toothbrush, the Theragun PRO is only slightly louder at 65 dB – despite the higher stall force.

Winner: Booster Pro 3

55 dB

65 dB

Attachments & Accessoires

Both the Booster Pro 3 and the Theragun PRO come with six interchangeable attachments, meaning you can quickly adjust the massage experience according to your needs and the muscle area you are about to swipe. Furthermore, they both include a travel case that helps you keep everything well protected and in one place.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final category of this Booster vs Theragun comparison, let’s have a look at the weight and size of both devices. The Booster Pro 3 is both lighter and smaller in terms of height and width. That said, both massage guns are light and small enough to bring them to the office or the gym.

Winner: Booster Pro 3

2.6 lbs, 8.5 x 2.5 x 11.2 in

2.9 lbs, 10 x 3.0 x 7.1 in

Conclusion: Booster Pro 3 vs Theragun PRO

So which flagship massage gun is better – Booster or Theragun?

If you want the best massage gun that is also used by professional athletes, then the Theragun PRO is definitely the right choice. It has both a higher amplitude and a stall force almost double of its competitor. The total battery life can reach up to five hours thanks to the additional battery. Finally, the arm can be rotated and makes massaging yourself a lot easier, even in hard-to-reach areas.

Obviously, all those features come at a cost. If you are just looking for a relaxing massage that activates your muscles and increases blood flow, pick the Booster Pro 3 and save yourself quite a bit of money. With a battery life of up to six hours and a working noise level of an electric toothbrush, it is especially suited for everyday usage at the office or at home.
