Runners and athletes are absolutely loving the Hypervolt (it’s our most popular recovery tool). Here’s why this quiet, effective massage tool is a favorite.
Foam rollers are great, but I’m pretty sure we can all agree that unless you really know what you’re doing with one, you don’t feel as good as you do after leaving a sports massage therapist. But what if I told you that there’s a tool that’ll give you a massage that’s so amazing, so invigorating, that you’ll feel like you’ve spent top dollar on an amazing massage? Yup. The Hypervolt feels that good.

The Hypervolt Massager: Why People Are Loving It
The Hyperice Hypervolt, a percussion massager, is absolutely crushing it right now. It’s our top-selling recovery tool and beloved among not only our customers but also our employees. Hyperice visited Road Runner Sports’ HQ in San Diego to treat our employees to a massage and our stiff, tired runner joints rejoiced.
Do Percussion Massagers Work?
In a word, yes. Especially this one. This handheld vibrating massage tool has a slew of benefits, but let’s start here.
The Hyperice Hypervolt percussion massager:
- Helps relieve those aforementioned stiff, tired muscles from all that working out you do
- Improves range of motion, which means less future stiff muscles and increased mobility
- Promotes circulation which helps boost athletic performance
- Amps up your warm ups and recovery
Hypervolt vs. Theragun: Which is Better?
When attempting to find the best of the best in percussion massage tools, many compare the Hyperice Hypervolt and Hypervolt Plus with the Theragun G3Pro. Reviews show that athletes are loving the Hypervolt over its competitors not just for its state-of-the-art technology and lower price point, but also because IT’S QUIET. This is one of those benefits that you don’t fully appreciate until you’re in your cubicle at work after a long run DYING to use your massage device but realizing that you’re definitely not getting invited to the next group lunch if you keep annoying your co-workers. Use it in front of your TV, in your tiny apartment while your partner sleeps – anything goes! Your massager should not sound like a power tool.
The Theragun G3Pro is more expensive. The original Hypervolt is $349 while the Hypervolt Plus is $449. The Theragun GSPro is $599. We suggest testing the products at your local running store to compare and contrast. But if you want more bang for your buck, consider the Hypervolt Plus (more on that later).
The Hypervolt is Convenient
Worried that lugging this thing around might get annoying? Fear not! It’s actually surprisingly light (2.5 pounds). The battery life lasts for about three hours, so you can leave those attachments at home if you don’t want the added responsibility of remembering not to leave your charger at the office or gym. And, as we mentioned, it’s so much quieter than many of the other comparable massage tools on the market.
How to Use the Hyperice Hypervolt
Watch the video to understand speeds and attachments or read our breakdown below the video:
- Level one: About 2,000 percussions per minute. This lower setting is great for your upper extremities like your neck.
- Level two: 2,600 percussions per minute. This setting is good for a slightly denser area, like your legs or calves.
- Level three: 3,200 percussions per minute. Great for denser areas like hips, quads, glutes, and your piriformis — areas where the tissue and muscles are denser and the higher amplitude of force helps loosen things up.
- Ball attachment: The softest head to help ease your body into the massage.
- Flat head: Good for denser parts of the body – quads, glutes, pecs – but can be used on almost any body part. The most versatile head that comes with the Hypervolt.
- The bullet head: Good for trigger-point targeting specific areas. This head works well on smaller areas like your feet.
- The fork head: The two prongs are great for the area around the Achilles tendon (never use it on the Achilles itself), your ankle, your traps, your foot, really anywhere that’s tight. Some like to use it on the larger muscles like calves and quads, too.
- Cushion head (brand new feature!): In-between the ball attachment and flat head, but cushier than the flat head. The cushion head has some squish to it so it eases into the muscles gently.
Hyperice Hypervolt Reviews
It’s fair to say that people are loving this percussion massager.
New! The Hypervolt Plus – The Updated Version of the Hypervolt
The Hypervolt Plus Has More Power
The Hypervolt Plus has all of the features of the OG Hypervolt but it’s also loaded with 30% more power. What does that mean for you? You can expect an even deeper, intensely rejuvenating massage from the Plus. And just because it’s more powerful doesn’t mean it’s louder. The Hypervolt Plus is just as surprisingly quiet as the Hypervolt. Because of the increased power output, the Plus is $449 while the Hypervolt OG is $349. Both models come in under the Theragun G3Pro ($599).
