Massage guns have become pivotal to anyone who is into fitness and it is no wonder that you are confused with the various available options in the market. We get it and that is why we bring to you the best massaging guns available on the market, The Theragun pro and the Hypervolt 2 pro.
Pricing must not be the only thing that drives your decision but it is essential to know that the Theragun pro is nearly 42.5% more costly than the hypervolt 2 pros. The theragun pro retails at $599 in the US and £549 in the UK whereas, the hypervolt 2 pro retails at £379 and $399 in the UK and the US respectively.
Speed Presets Performance:
The Theragun pro has a range of preset speeds that range from 1750rpm to 2400rpm which might seem like the ideal massage gun but when compared to the cheaper hypervolt 2 pro, the hypervolt outweighs this feature with a maximum of 2700rpm set at the top.
If you are someone who wants to avoid the vast clutters of wires hanging around, we guess battery life is something that you would be looking forward to. The Theragun Pro has a battery life of 2.5 hours on a full charge and high speed whereas the Hypervolt 2 pro can last up to 3 hours in the same configuration.
But there is a catch here, the theragun pro comes with two swappable rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that can be swapped once your main charge runs out taking the total battery life of the Theragun pro to a whopping 5 hours making it practical and effective for those long gym sessions.
Weight and practicality:
Let’s face it, massage guns will occupy extra space in your gym bags and add extra loads to your gym bag and this is where choosing a massage gun that is practical and less heavy can make the difference. The Theragun pro weighs around 1.8kg (2.9lb) whereas the Hypervolt 2 pro weighs less at 1.18 kg (2.6lb). The heavier theragun pro justifies its weight with practicality. The complete gun is designed on a triangular ergonomic multi-grip design making it more practical and easy to use. The hypervolt 2 pro on the other hand comes with the standard pill-shaped design which might take some time to get used to.
Both the guns come with native applications and connected features allowing you to make the best of both.
As much as the Hypervolt 2 pro might seem like the perfect choice with its perfect weight-to-speed ratio, the theragun pro is still a popular choice among massage therapists for the extended battery life and ergonomics which makes it a practical choice for those tricky corners and long gym sessions. If you are looking for some other options in the market, you also have the Hypervolt Go and the Theragun mini.
Rest assured, both these guns are the best of their leagues and are built sturdy to last longer.
