Comparison: Hypervolt vs Hypervolt 2 Pro

Amplitude

With an amplitude of 12 mm, the Hypervolt sits right in the middle between a vibrational and a percussive type of massage experience. The Hypervolt 2 Pro comes with a slightly higher stroke length of 14 mm and is better suited for a deep-tissue treatment.

Winner: Hypervolt 2 Pro

14 mm

Force

It takes around 35 lbs of pressure for the brushless motor inside the original Hypervolt to stall, making it powerful enough for most users. But as an athlete or someone with dense muscles, you will appreciate the significantly higher stall force of 60 lbs of the Hypervolt 2 Pro.

  • Level 2: 1900 ppm / 32 Hz
  • Level 3: 2100 ppm / 35 Hz

Battery

The Hypervolt and the Hypervolt 2 Pro have a battery life of up to three hours. With a single treatment not taking longer than a few minutes, both devices should get you through several days. Furthermore, you can always swap an empty battery for a fully charged one.

Noise

Both massage guns generate a maximum of around 65 decibels (dB) of noise, making them just a bit louder than an electric toothbrush. Considering that the Hypervolt 2 Pro is the way more powerful device of the two, it is remarkable that the noise level stayed the same.

Attachments & Accessoires

When it comes to the attachments, the Hypervolt and the Hypervolt 2 Pro are once again tied. Both include five interchangeable head attachments, allowing 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

Changes to the material of the massage heads of the second generation make them feel firmer and easier to clean. Unfortunately, neither device ships with a carrying case.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Hypervolt vs Hypervolt 2 Pro comparison, we will have a look at the weight and dimensions of the two devices. The original Hypervolt is just a bit lighter and also takes up less space in your gym bag compared to its competitor.

Conclusion: Hypervolt vs Hypervolt 2 Pro

Looking pretty similar from the outside aside from the coloring, the original Hypervolt could also keep when it came to features such as battery life, noise level, and attachments. Now available at a reduced price, it is great value for the money if you are looking to buy your first professional-level massage gun.

The Hypervolt 2 Pro on the other hand convinced with higher amplitude and a significantly higher stall force, all the while keeping the battery life and noise level the same. So if you are looking for a more intense, percussive massage experience and want the same device that professional athletes including Patrick Mahomes use, it is the right choice for you.
