Hyperice Hypervolt Massage Guns vs. Therabody Theragun Massage Guns

As a Los Angeles fitness trainer, I understand how important fitness recovery products are to our clients’ physical health, safety, and overall well-being. However, with a myriad of options like post-workout drinks and supplements, stress straps, and foam rollers, it is difficult to know exactly what works for your body without purchasing and trying each option. With the seemingly endless supply of options, trying them all would be impossible (and expensive).

Luckily, the workout aficionados at Hyperice and Therabody have created exceptional percussive massage guns that help expedite the workout recovery process.

Here is where their products, the Hypervolt and Theragun, stand in comparison.

What are Percussive Massage Guns?

Percussion massage guns are handheld devices that use vibration and deep oscillation to massage irritated muscles after a workout, race, or another physical activity.

What are the Differences Between the Hypervolt and Theragun Models?

Both the Hypervolt and Theragun come in multiple models for each type of user. Here is a quick comparison to help you differentiate between the details that are important for your unique fitness recovery needs.

Hypervolt Quick Facts

  • Number of models available: Six.
  • Handle Type: Cylindrical.
  • Product weight: 1.5 to 2.6 pounds.
  • Battery life: 2.5 to 3 hours.
  • Stroke length (amplitude): 10 to 14 mm (estimated).
  • Stall force: 20 to 40 lbs. (estimated).

The Hypervolt is slightly quieter than the Theragun, but also slightly less powerful, providing a gentler massage at a lesser price.

Theragun Quick Facts

  • Number of models available: Four.
  • Handle type: Triangular.
  • Product weight: 1.4 to 2.8 lbs.
  • Battery life: 2 to 5 hours.
  • Stroke length (amplitude): 12 to 16 mm (estimated).

  • Attachments: one to six closed-cell foam attachments are included, depending on the model.

Although the Theragun is slightly more powerful and has precise programmable speeds — instead of fixed speeds, like the Hypervolt — it is also a little louder.

Both Theraguns and Hypervolts will massage sore muscles, increase blood flow to the treated areas, and help the body warm up and cool down from exercise. Like most fitness recovery tools, the actual choice you make depends on your unique needs and how much you would like to spend.
