Battery

Lasting up to 3 hours as opposed to 2, the Hypervolt 2 Pro has the upper hand over Therabody‘s entry-level device when it comes to battery life. But with each treatment only taking a few minutes, both models will get you through several days on a single charge.

Attachments & Accessories

To enable you to adjust the treatment experience to your exact needs and the muscle group you are about to target next, the Hypervolt 2 Pro ships with five interchangeable head attachments, one more than the Theragun Prime.

  • Bullet: Pinpoint problem areas and release trigger points
  • Cushion: Softer attachment for sensitive areas
  • Flat: Smaller surface area, great to use on more dense muscle groups
  • Fork: Rounded ends to work around specific muscle groups
  • Round: Greater surface area, best attachment to start with

Unfortunately, neither model includes a travel case.

Unsurprisingly, Hyperice’s high-end model came out on top in most categories. The Hypervolt 2 Pro combines a high amplitude with an extremely powerful motor, making it one of the devices preferred by professional athletes. It is also equipped with a longer lasting battery.

The Theragun Prime convinces with its even higher amplitude, which is in fact among the highest on the market. It comes with the same connectivity capabilities, and operates at a similar noise level. If stall force is not that of an important criterion for you, it might be worth a closer look.
