Comparison: Ekrin B37 vs Hypervolt Plus

Amplitude

With an amplitude of 12 mm, the Ekrin B37 loses out to the Hypervolt Plus and its stroke length of 14 mm. However, it still meets the standard of 12 mm or above that is considered suitable for percussive therapy.

Winner: Hypervolt Plus

Force

When it comes to the stall force, it is the Ekrin B37 that has the upper hand. At around 55 lbs, it should be powerful enough even for athletes. The brushless motor inside the Hypervolt Plus reaches its limits at around 45 lbs, which is still more than enough for most users.

Frequency & Speed Levels

Ranging from as low as 1,400 up to 3,200 percussions per minute (ppm) divided into five different speed settings, the Ekrin B37 really allows you to adjust the massage experience to your liking.

  • Level 1: 1,400 ppm
  • Level 2: 1,800 ppm
  • Level 3: 2,200 ppm
  • Level 4: 2,600 ppm
  • Level 5: 3,200 ppm

With the Hypervolt Plus, you are limited to a smaller range and three speed levels.

Connectivity

Unlike the Ekrin B37, the Hypervolt Plus can be connected to your smartphone and help you keep track your treatment sessions. The Hyperice app can even control the massager for you, allowing you to follow recovery routines developed by professional athletes and health experts.

Battery

Despite being the more powerful device, the Ekrin B37 absolutely dwarfs the Hypervolt Plus when it comes to battery life. That said, with every treatment session taking about ten minutes, even the seemingly low 2.5 hours of the Hypervolt Plus will get you through several days of massages.

Winner: Ekrin B37

Up to 8 hours

Up to 2.5 hours

Noise

Reaching only about 55 decibels (dB) on the highest speed setting, the Ekrin B37 is definitely suitable for the locker room or even while watching TV. At up to 70 dB, the Hypervolt Plus does get a little loud – a problem that was partly tackled with the Hypervolt 2 and Hypervolt 2 Pro.

Winner: Ekrin B37

Attachments & Accessoires

The Ekrin B37 comes with four interchangeable head attachments that allow you to personalize the massage experience to your needs and the muscle area you are about to target next.

  • Bullet: Pinpoint treatment for hands, feet, and knots
  • Flat: Great for overall use
  • Fork: Designed to treat the spine and neck
  • Round: Overall use on large muscle groups

The Hypervolt Plus even includes an additional fifth massage head with a softer attachment for sensitive areas. But unlike the Ekrin B37, it does ship without a carrying case – which is why we will call this round a draw.

Winner: Draw

4 massage heads, travel case

5 massage heads

Weight & Dimensions

In the last round of this Ekrin B37 vs Hypervolt Plus comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of the two devices. While the Ekrin B37 does have the lower weight, the Hypervolt Plus takes up less space overall in your gym bag.

3.0 lbs, 9.3 x 6.5 x 2.5 in

Conclusion: Ekrin B37 vs Hypervolt Plus

The Ekrin B37 convinces with a high stall force and more possibilities for personalization when it comes to speed settings. At the same time, the engineers at Ekrin Athletics somehow managed to make the device both quiet and extremely resourceful in terms of battery usage.

The Hypervolt Plus, on the other hand, has the higher amplitude and the ability to interact with the Hyperice app on your smartphone. So if you would like to follow the exact routines that professional athletes use, the Hypervolt Plus is the obvious choice.
