Comparison: Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt

Amplitude

Both the Hypervolt GO and the original Hypervolt have an amplitude of just 10 mm, meaning they provide a vibrational, surface-level massage. If you are looking for a deep-tissue massager, the Hypervolt Plus is the better choice.

Force

It takes around 35 lbs of pressure until the brushless motor inside the Hypervolt begins to stall, making it more than twice as powerful as the Hypervolt GO with a stall force of 15 lbs.

Frequency & Speed Levels

All Hyperice massage guns are able to generate between 2,400 and 3,200 percussions per minute (ppm). Using just the device itself (see below), you can choose between three different speed levels:

  • Level 1: 30 Hz / 2400 ppm
  • Level 2: 40 Hz / 2800 ppm
  • Level 3: 53 Hz / 3200 ppm

Winner: Draw

Connectivity

The Hypervolt and Hypervolt Plus allow you to further personalize the frequency of your massage gun by connecting it to the Hyperice app. You can then also let the app control your device, making it easy to follow recovery routines created by health experts and professional athletes.

Yes

Battery

Despite having more than double the stall force and the additional connectivity feature, the Hypervolt’s battery has enough juice for up to 3 hours. But even the 2.5 hours of the Hypervolt GO should get you through several days of massages.

Noise

At just 55 decibels (dB) or around the noise level of an electric toothbrush, the Hypervolt GO is an extremely quiet massager and perfectly suitable for the office, public transport, or watching TV.

Winner: Hypervolt GO

Around 55 dB

Around 65 dB

Attachments & Accessoires

While Hyperice was kind enough to include two massage heads with the Hypervolt GO, the original Hypervolt comes with a total of five interchangeable head attachments:

  • 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

Disappointingly, neither of the two devices comes with a carrying case.

Winner: Hypervolt

2 massage heads

5 massage heads

Weight & Dimensions

With a weight of just 1.5 lbs, the mini massage gun obviously wins the last round of our Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt comparison. This makes it the perfect device for travel and usage on the go.

Winner: Hypervolt GO

1.5 lbs, 7.3 x 5.5 x 2.0 in

2.5 lbs, 9.3 x 6.5 x 2.5 in

Conclusion: Hypervolt GO vs Hypervolt

The Hypervolt GO convinces with its low weight and small dimensions that make it fit in every handbag or suitcase. In combination with the very low noise level of around 55 dB, it is a great handheld massager to use at the office, on public transport, or while relaxing in front of the TV.

But with a stall force of just 15 lbs, it is definitely not one of the most powerful massage guns out there. So if you are looking for a more powerful massage experience, the original Hypervolt with its five massage heads and surprisingly better battery life is undoubtedly the better choice for you.
