Comparison: Pulsio AIR vs Hypervolt GO

Amplitude

With an amplitude of 8 mm, the Pulsio AIR loses out to the Hypervolt GO with its stroke length of 10 mm. This makes both devices perfectly suitable for a relaxing surface-level massage – but not so much for athletes looking for a percussive massage experience.

Winner: Hypervolt GO

8 mm

10 mm

Force

The brushless motor inside the Pulsio AIR reaches its limits at around 25 lbs, a quite impressive number for a massage gun this size. This makes it significantly more powerful than the Hypervolt GO, which begins to stall at around 15 lbs.

Frequency & Speed Levels

Ranging from as low as 1,000 up to 4,000 percussions per minute (ppm), the Pulsio AIR with four speed levels offers more possibilities to adjust the massage experience than the Hypervolt GO, which comes with a range of 2,400 to 3,200 ppm and three speed levels.

Winner: Pulsio AIR

1000 to 4000 ppm, 4 levels

2400 to 3200 ppm, 3 levels

Connectivity

Neither of the two devices can be connected to your smartphone, meaning they offer no easy way to track sessions or follow massage routines developed by health experts. While the Pulsio Elite also lacks this feature, it is included with all other Hyperice massage guns.

Introducing the Pulsio AIR

Battery

Since it is the more powerful device of the two, it comes as no surprise that the Pulsio AIR with a battery life of around two hours loses this category against the Hypervolt GO. But with every session only taking a few minutes, both massage guns should last for several days.

Winner: Hypervolt GO

Up to 2 hours

Up to 2.5 hours

Noise

When it comes to the noise level, however, the more powerful Pulsio AIR surprisingly comes out on top. Maxing out at around 42 decibels (dB), you will get in no trouble for using it at the office, on public transport, or on your couch next to your partner while watching TV.

Attachments & Accessoires

With four interchangeable massage heads compared to two, the Pulsio AIR allows you to better personalize the massage experience to your needs and the muscle group you are about to target next. Unfortunately, neither the Pulsio AIR nor the Hypervolt GO ship with any kind of case.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Pulsio AIR vs Hypervolt GO review, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of the two devices. The Pulsio AIR is not only more lightweight but also smaller than the Hypervolt GO. That said, they are both suitable for travel and relaxation on the go.

Conclusion: Pulsio AIR vs Hypervolt GO

While it might lack behind in terms of amplitude, the Pulsio AIR is the significantly more powerful device of the two. At the same time, it is extremely quiet even on the highest speed level, making it a great choice for usage at the office, on public transport, or in other quiet places.

Thanks to the higher amplitude, the Hypervolt GO reaches a bit further into the muscle tissue and is therefore used by professional athletes ranging from the PGA Tour to MMA superstar Amanda Nunes. Additionally, it is also the better choice if you are looking for longer battery life.
