Comparison: Ekrin B37 vs Theragun Prime


With an amplitude of 12 mm, the Ekrin B37 meets the threshold of what is considered necessary for a percussive massage experience. That said, it does still come nowhere near the industry-leading 16 mm stroke length of Therabody massage guns, including the Theragun Prime.

When it comes to the stall force, however, it is the Theragun Prime that comes up short. The brushless motor inside the Ekrin B37 can deal with up to 55 lbs before it begins to stall, which is almost double the amount of its competitor.

  • Level 2: 1,800 ppm

Ekrin B37 Video Review


In terms of battery life, the Theragun Prime (and most other devices on the market) are no match for the Ekrin B37. The Lithium-ion battery developed by Samsung lasts for up to 8 hours of treatment sessions, compared to just 2 hours for the Theragun Prime.

Although it is the more powerful device of the two, the Ekrin B37 only generates a maximum of 55 decibels (dB) of noise, as opposed to 65 dB for the Theragun Prime. This difference might not be that significant in the locker room, but definitely is in more quiet environments.

Weight & Dimensions

In the last round of this Ekrin B37 vs Theragun Prime comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of both devices. At 2.2 lbs (1 kg), they weigh exactly the same. The Theragun Prime does take up a little less space in your gym bag, however.

Conclusion: Ekrin B37 vs Theragun Prime

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.

While it came in second in most categories, the Theragun Prime was superior in one very important aspect – amplitude. If you are looking for a deep-tissue massage experience or would like to have the ability to follow professional recovery routines through the app, it is the better fit.
