Comparison: Hypervolt 2 vs Hypervolt 2 Pro

Amplitude

If you are looking for a percussive massage experience, the Hypervolt 2 Pro with its amplitude of 14 mm is the better choice. In case you prefer a more vibrational type of massage, opt for the Hypervolt 2 with its stroke length of 12 mm.

Winner: Hypervolt 2 Pro

Force

Designed specifically with professional athletes and their deeper, more dense muscles tissue in mind, the Hypervolt 2 Pro comes with an impressive stall force of up to 60 lbs. That said, the Hypervolt 2 should still be powerful enough for most users with a stall force of 45 lbs.

Frequency & Speed Levels

While the Hypervolt 2 generates up to 3000 percussions per minute (ppm), the Hypervolt 2 Pro has the upper hand when it comes to the number of different speed levels:

  • Level 1: 1700 ppm / 28 Hz
  • Level 2: 1900 ppm / 32 Hz
  • Level 3: 2100 ppm / 35 Hz
  • Level 4: 2400 ppm / 40 Hz
  • Level 5: 2700 ppm / 45 Hz

The newly introduced digital dial also makes switching between those five levels more intuitive.

Introducing the Hypervolt 2

Battery

Both devices run for up to three hours before you need to find a plug socket. But unlike the Hypervolt 2, the Hypervolt 2 Pro has a removable battery – meaning you could simply swap the empty battery for a fully charged replacement and almost immediately continue your treatment.

Noise

Considering that the Hypervolt 2 Pro is the more powerful device of the two, it is surprising to see that the engineers at Hyperice still managed to keep the working noise at around 65 decibels (dB) and therefore at the same level as the Hypervolt 2.

Attachments & Accessoires

The interchangeable head attachments of both devices are now made of an upgraded material that feels firmer and also easier to clean compared to the first-generation Hypervolt and Hypervolt Plus. You can personalize your massage experience with these massage heads:

  • 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

Additionally, the Hypervolt 2 Pro includes three adapters for international travel/usage. Unfortunately, neither of the devices comes with a carrying case.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Hypervolt 2 vs Hypervolt 2 Pro comparison, it is the entry-level device that takes the win. The Hypervolt 2 is both lighter and smaller than its competitor. Both massage guns of the second generation have a pill-shaped grip that makes them easier to hold.

Conclusion: Hypervolt 2 vs Hypervolt 2 Pro

So which device of the second generation is the better one?

While it only came out on top once during this comparison, theHypervolt 2 is still a great massage gun for most users. Although the device is quite powerful, the battery inside should get you through several days of massages and is quiet enough to not disturb the people around you. As you might expect, it is also significantly cheaper.

That said, if you want the best Hyperice massage gun out there, theHypervolt 2 Pro is the right choice for you. It is powerful enough even for professional athletes and comes with a higher amplitude that is better suited for a deep-tissue massage. And at the same time, you still get to enjoy plenty of battery life and have a device quiet enough to use at the office.
