Comparison: Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt 2 Pro


With an amplitude of 10 mm, the Hypervolt GO provides more of a surface-level, vibrating type of massage. The Hypervolt 2 Pro on the other hand features a stroke length of 14 mm and is suitable for a much more percussive experience.

The brushless motor inside the Hypervolt GO reaches its limits at around 15 lbs of pressure. If you are an athlete or someone looking for a significantly more intense treatment, the Hypervolt 2 Pro with a stall force of up to 60 lbs is definitely a better fit for you.

Frequency & Speed Levels

Although the Hypervolt GO reaches a higher maximum at 3,200 percussions per minute (ppm), the Hypervolt 2 Pro offers a wider range and also allows you to better adjust the frequency with five different speed levels compared to three:

  • 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 Hypervolt GO is the only out of all five Hyperice massage guns that is unable to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Doing so lets an app take control of your massager for you and makes it easy to follow recovery routines developed by professional athletes and health experts.

Winner: Hypervolt 2 Pro

Despite having a stall force four times higher than the Hypervolt GO, the Hypervolt 2 Pro still has a longer battery life of up to three hours. Furthermore, the battery of the 2 Pro is also removable – meaning you could further increase the usage time with an extra replacement battery.

At around 55 decibels (dB), the Hypervolt GO is only as loud as your electric toothbrush and a great handheld massager for the office or public transport. However, the Hypervolt 2 Pro with a maximum noise level of 65 dB is also not exactly a loud device.

Attachments & Accessoires

Designed for portability, the Hypervolt GO includes just two massage heads. The Hypervolt 2 Pro comes with a total of five interchangeable head attachments, which allow you to personalize the massage experience to your exact needs.

  • 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 device ships with a carrying case.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt 2 Pro comparison, we will have a look at the weight and dimensions of both devices. Although the mini massage gun is unsurprisingly the clear winner, the 2 Pro should still fit into your gym bag without any problems.

2.6 lbs, 8.0 x 2.5 x 10.4 in

Conclusion: Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt 2 Pro

Like you have probably expected, the Hypervolt GO came up short against Hyperice’s new flagship massage gun in almost all categories. That said, it is still a great device for a relaxing neck massage at the office or to quickly sweep across your forearms in between rounds of golf, just like a lot of PGA tour professionals do.

For other athletes and everyone looking for a percussive massage experience, the Hypervolt 2 Pro is undoubtedly the better choice. It comes with a higher amplitude and stall force but still lasts up to half an hour longer than its smaller competitor. Furthermore, the additional massage heads make it a lot more customizable.
