Comparison: Hypervolt 2 Pro vs Theragun PRO

Amplitude

Professional athletes and those training like one want a handheld massager with a high amplitude that can penetrate deep into their muscle fibers. While both devices meet this requirement, the Theragun PRO with its stoke length of 16 mm tops the Hypervolt 2 Pro and the majority of other massage guns on the market in this category.

Force

Stall force is an area where the Hypervolt 2 Pro received a massive upgrade compared to the first generation. It now takes an impressive 60 lbs for the brushless motor to reach its limits, up from 45 lbs and putting it on par with the Theragun PRO. This makes both devices powerful enough for even the most demanding users.

  • Level 3: 2100 ppm / 35 Hz

Connectivity

As is the case with almost every Hyperice and Therabody massage gun, the Hypervolt 2 Pro and the Theragun PRO are able to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Among other things, this allows you to let the respective app take control of your massager. Now you can easily follow the exact warm-up and recovery routines that professional athletes use.

Battery

The Hypervolt 2 Pro has a slightly better battery life with up to three hours of usage, about half an hour more than its competitor. However, the Theragun PRO ships with a replacement battery – meaning you can effectively double the battery life to around five hours.

While the battery of the Hypervolt 2 Pro is also removable, you need to purchase your backup battery separately. Either way, this makes both devices suitable for physiotherapists and other professionals who might need to use them for extended periods.

Winner: Hypervolt 2 Pro

Up to 3 hours

Up to 2.5 hours

Noise

Despite their power, the Hypervolt 2 Pro and the Theragun PRO only generate a maximum of about 65 decibels (dB) of noise. Considering that this is only a bit louder than an electric toothbrush, you can safely use them in the locker room. And at lower speeds, the noise level drops even further.

Attachments & Accessoires

To let you personalize the massage experience to your exact needs, the Hypervolt 2 Pro includes five interchangeable head attachments. The Theragun PRO even comes with six massage heads:

  • Cone: Used mostly for pinpoint muscle treatment, including the hands and feet
  • Dampener: Used mostly for tender or bony areas. Perfect for overall use
  • Standard Ball: Perfect for overall use on large and small muscle groups
  • Thumb: Used mostly for trigger points and the lower back
  • Wedge: Perfect for shoulder blades and IT bands
  • Supersoft: Mostly used for sensitive areas, including bones

But where the Theragun PRO really wins this category are the accessoires. Besides the already mentioned replacement battery, it also ships with a carrying case that helps you keep your massage gun and everything that comes with it protected and in one place.

Weight & Dimensions

In the last round of this Hypervolt 2 Pro vs Theragun PRO comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of both devices. At 2.6 lbs, the Hypervolt 2 Pro is the slightly lighter of the two and also takes up a little less space than the Theragun PRO.

Winner: Hypervolt 2 Pro

2.6 lbs, 8.0 x 2.5 x 10.4 in

2.9 lbs, 10 x 3.0 x 7.1 in

Conclusion: Hypervolt 2 Pro vs Theragun PRO

With its high amplitude and powerful motor, the Theragun PRO is still the best massage gun on the market. It compensates for the shorter battery life with an already included replacement battery and convinces with its additional attachment and travel case. Finally, the unique shape and rotable arm make it easy to treat otherwise hard-to-reach areas.

That said, those extras do come at a price. And if you feel you do not need them, the Hypervolt 2 Pro is definitely the better choice. Upgrades to the motor and the battery have made the device a fixture in MLB dugouts, on NBA benches, and the recovery routines of superstar athletes such as Patrick Mahomes – a routine that you could now copy and even save money while doing so.
