Hyperice Hypervolt Plus Review | Best Massage Gun Yet?

We receive free products to review and may receive commissions on purchases made through our links. See our disclosure page for details.

The Hypervolt Plus is the latest percussive massage gun that is designed and produced by Hyperice. This massage gun has a lot going for it, and possibly the biggest pro that I’ve found with device is how quiet its motor is.

The only real drawback to this product is the slightly higher price tag, but I wanted to investigate if that could be justified. In this Hyperice Hypervolt Plus review, I dive into multiple aspects of this massage gun that should help you decide if it’s a good choice to include in your arsenal of recovery products.

This massage gun is perfect for the serious athlete that needs wants a versatile massage gun that has a quiet motor for use in every setting.

Who Should Buy the Hyperice Hypervolt Plus

  • Fitness professionals who need a manual massage gun for clients.
  • Lifters that want additional tools for recovery.
  • Athletes that need a massage gun that is quiet for public spaces or apartment use.

Who Shouldn’t Buy the Hyperice Hypervolt Plus

  • The very casual or beginner lifter.
  • Lifters that already pay for in-person training that have massage done regularly to them.
  • Those with a very strapped budget.

Price

You can expect to pay $399.00 for a Hyperice Hypervolt Plus massage gun. This price is slightly higher than some of the other budget massage guns on the market, however, I think it could be justified.

The slightly longer battery life, quiet(er) engine, and multiple attachments make this gun a solid pick for the money compared to the guns that fall into the similar price range.

Performance

Overall, I really enjoyed the Hypervolt Plus massage gun. I live in a small apartment in New York City and at times other massage gun’s loud motors limit my ability to use them at odd hours. The quieter motor on the Hypervolt Plus was the perfect solution for this continual dilemma I have with its Quiet GlideTM technology.

Similar to other massage guns on the market, the Hypervolt Plus has three different speeds, which is great because it provided me with variance in multiple settings. I found that the slower speed with the softer head on the Hypervolt Plus was the perfect combination for late night recovery massages before heading to bed. Another pro to the Hypervolt Plus is the built-in pressure sensors that can help dictate the level of pressure needed for various areas on the body.

The multiple head attachments also provide a lot of benefit for targeting various areas. The Hypervolt Plus has roughly 2.5 hours of use before needing to be charged, which is pretty good compared to other massage guns on the market. I could use this massage gun over the span of 3-5 days without the need to charge it.

Build Quality

Out of every massage gun I’ve reviewed, I think the Hypervolt Plus takes the case for the best build quality. This massage gun feels sturdy and well-built. The product feels smooth and well put together where the rubber, plastic, and metal meet with one another, and there’s no shaky feeling whatsoever when it’s running at full speed.

The 90W high-torque motor is powerful and it’s matched with Quiet GlideTM technology, so the top of the gun where the motor sits feels powerful, but controlled. The lithium-ion battery attached at the bottom provides a sturdy handle and gives the product a nice firm weight.

How Massage Guns Might Help Recovery

Massage guns come with a lot varied opinions in regard to their usefulness. These opinions often surround the idea that for many their high price tags are not worth the smaller benefits that might have. However, if price isn’t a concern for you, then there are a couple benefits that might come attached with massage guns.

 

Percussive therapy has been around for years, and this is the style of massage provided by massage guns. It’s suggested to be useful for assisting with mobility and recovery efforts. Manual therapy has continuously been suggested to be beneficial for athletes when it comes to prep, performance, and recovery.
