Comparison: Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt 2

Amplitude

With an amplitude of 10 mm, the Hypervolt GO is suitable for a surface-level, vibrating type of massage. The Hypervolt 2 on the other hand has a stroke length of 12 mm and provides more of a percussive treatment.

Force

It takes up to 45 lbs for the brushless motor inside the Hypervolt 2 to reach its limits. This makes it three times more powerful than the Hypervolt GO with a stall force of around 15 lbs and the better choice for athletes or everyone with dense muscles.

Frequency & Speed Levels

While the Hypervolt GO can reach up to 3,200 percussions per minute (ppm), the Hypervolt 2 maxes out at 3,000 ppm. However, the Hypervolt 2 offers a much wider range of percussions:

  • Level 1: 1800 ppm / 30 Hz
  • Level 2: 2400 ppm / 40 Hz
  • Level 3: 3000 ppm / 53 Hz

Both devices allow you to choose between three different speed levels.

Connectivity

Unlike every other Hyperice massage gun including the Hypervolt 2, the Hypervolt GO is unable to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Among other things, this feature allows you to follow warm-up and recovery routines developed by health experts and professional athletes.

Battery

Despite being more powerful than its small competitor, the Hypervolt 2 can run for up to three hours and therefore has a better battery life than the Hypervolt GO. But with a treatment session not taking longer than a few minutes, either device should get you through several days.

Noise

When it comes to noise generated, the less powerful motor of the Hypervolt GO suddenly turns into an advantage. With a maximum of around 55 decibels (dB), it is better suited for usage at the office or other public places compared to the Hypervolt 2.

Attachments & Accessoires

Designed for a life on the go, the Hypervolt GO includes only two massage heads. The Hypervolt 2 comes with a total of five interchangeable head attachments and offers a lot more possibilities for you to adapt the massage experience to your 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 comparison, we will have a look at the weight and dimensions of both devices. Although the weight of the Hypervolt 2 decreased significantly compared to its successor, the Hypervolt GO is the lighter and smaller massager.

1.8 lbs, 7.5 x 2.5 x 9.5 in

Conclusion: Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt 2

Like you probably expected, the Hypervolt GO lost out to the Hypervolt 2 in most categories.

However, it does exactly what it is supposed to do – being a small, lightweight, and quiet mini-massage gun. Add to that the respectable battery life and you have a great device to treat your sore neck at the office or quickly sweep across your arms in between rounds of golf.

If you are looking for a more powerful treatment though, there is no doubt that the Hypervolt 2 is the better choice for you. Despite its power, it is surprisingly quiet and runs for up to three hours. And with the additional head attachments, you are better able to personalize your massage experience to your exact needs.
