Design

The device measures 9.7 x 7 x 2.5 (inches). It has compact design and shape. It weighs 2.5lbs. Again this is not too heavy. The highlight LED is the ring around the handle that illuminates in different colors to indicate different battery charge levels.

Above the power button there are 3 LEDs that indicate the speed gears. There are 3 LEDs below the button that indicate the pressure applied. Finally there are 5 more LEDs right below that indicate the battery charge level. These double up with the ring LED but as a 5-level indication.

Heads

The Hypervolt comes with four interchangeable heads: round, flat, bullet, and fork. Each head is built from hard plastic with the exception of the rounded head, which is hard foam. The attachments all fit conveniently in the provided carrying case, along with the unit, which weighs approximately 2.5 pounds.

Attachments

The flat, fork, and bullet attachments here are all hard plastic. The ball attachment is slightly squishy, but we love the cushion head because it’s the softest. The fork attachment has markings that have to be aligned properly when inserting to prevent it from rotating during the massage. The other heads however, are simple push-and-pull with no special alignment required.

Speed

The device has 3 speed gears and that is it (1800, 2400, and 3200 – or rather 3180 to be precise). While this may be okay, and you actually get used to it, we think a device of this kind should have at least 4 to 5 speeds.

Percussion

The massager has three different speed-strength level settings: 30Hz for 1,800 percussions per minute, 40Hz for 2,400 percussions per minute, and 53Hz for 3,180 percussions per minute. Each Hypervolt device also comes backed by a one-year warranty through Hyperice. 

Battery life & Charging

Hypervolt has a 2400mAh capacity battery that will last up to 2-2.5 hours on a single charge, as advertised by Hyperice. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery runs for just over two hours per charge and recharges in under six hours using the supplied 24-volt adapter. If the two-hour run time isn’t enough for you, Hyperice offers additional batteries for $80, allowing you to keep the device going while your other battery charges.

There is a wall charger as well. It looks similar to many others that we’ve seen with many other devices. It’s made of brick and detachable cable. The charger looks glossy and stylish.

There is also a Hyperice pack of cards (they do this with all their devices). The cards consist of a quick-start guide

Noise

Another aspect of the Hypervolt I enjoyed was how quietly it runs while in use. On its highest setting, my sound meter registered only 60 decibels from 12 inches away. Even when I while using it on my neck, I was still able to hear audio from my television without cranking up the volume.

How to use Hyperice Hypervolt Plus Bluetooth feat. quiet glide technology?

  • There is a main switch at the base of the handle, right next to the charging port. We have seen similar switches from the knockoffs – Opove M3 Pro is an example. 
  • Once you switch the device on, press the main button to start the device.
  • The first press starts the device on first gear. 
  • 2nd press switches to the second gear, 3rd press to the 3rd gear and the 4th press shuts the device. 
  • You can also turn it off instantly using the switch button. 

Hyperice App – Hyperice Hypervolt Plus Bluetooth feat. quiet glide technology

Hyperice added Bluetooth to their main device and it became compatible with their Hyperice smartphone app.

The app has how-to guides, guided routines (videos) and can take over the operation of the device. You can learn how to use a massage gun as you watch professional athletes use it on themselves. You can watch the athlete using the device and you can then apply what you see on yourself.

Hyperice app on iOS

What else to know about it:

  • The speed automatically adjusts.
  • We didn’t see the pressure applied last time we checked for an update. We are used to it when using our Theragun devices with the Therabody app.
  • You will not be able to add any custom speeds like you can with the Therabody app. There are 3 built-in speeds and that’s it.

That said, we have a feeling Hyperice will be updating their app to include more features as time goes by. We have seen them add new routines and new content. We believe once they have all their devices hooked to the app then there will be more added to it.

Hyperice Hypervolt Plus Bluetooth feat. quiet glide technology Performance reviews

Setting up the massager was easy and intuitive, though I did have to wait roughly two hours for the battery to completely charge before I could first use it. The user manual notes that the first charge may take up to six hours, so plan accordingly. The device comes fully assembled out of the box and all you need to do to start using (after charging) is to choose a massage head, put it into the slot in the front, and power it up.

When I use it on my neck and shoulders (the areas that seem to always be the most painful), the Hypervolt massager helps me work through muscle pain before it becomes a headache. I’ve found the lowest setting is ideal because the massager shakes the head, which often turns out to be too intense for me when it’s on a higher setting.

After the battery charged and I installed the desired head, I ran into a bit of confusion. I pressed the button on the back of the massager to start it up but, strangely, nothing happened. A quick consultation of the operating directions showed me that there are not one, but two power buttons: one on the base of the battery and another on the back of the device (this one also adjusts the speeds). Once I flipped on the battery’s power button, the button on the back of the unit worked fine.

Excellent massaging device

I work out frequently at my home gym, and I also do a lot of yard work almost every day. My muscles are usually tight and sore despite properly stretching before and after each work. When I saw the Hyperice Hypervolt Vibration massager, I was excited to try it out to help alleviate my sore muscles. My friend who frequently visits a chiropractor informed me that they use a similar device for her visits. After a week of using it, I was not disappointed.

The Hypervolt is very easy to setup and use. I attached the rechargeable battery to the unit, which came fully charged. Choose the appropriate head and put it on the massager. Note that while pushing the head inside the device, make sure to turn it 1/4 of the way to insert it all the way inside. To change heads, simple pull and turn 1/4 of the way the attached head and insert another head. The only head that does not require turning while pushing is the fork. It includes four different attachment/tips, and each is designed to massage the muscles differently.

The flat head attachment is my favorite, and I use it on my denser muscles like the quad and pecks. The softest accessory is the ball head. The bullet head is suitable for any tissue because of it used for trigger points or target a specific area. The fork head attachment is like having two bullet heads side by side, and it is also good for any muscle. The more you use the messaging device, the more you will know your body, and you will figure out what is most effective, what speed and which head to use for each muscle.

The control button adjusts the intensity of the message into three variable speed levels. The first level is not highly aggressive, which is good for beginners, smaller muscles or upper body muscles. For the denser muscles like the legs or calf, the second level is more appropriate. The third level is more aggressive which is good for the more bigger muscles (glutes, hips, quads) or to do the most massaging. For the first timers, I recommend beginners to start at the lowest speed level and don’t apply a lot of pressure. After you get used to the massager, start adding more pressure and going at a higher as needed, without overdoing it.

This massager feels like a premium device, and it is powerful enough without generating a lot of noise. Fully charged, the battery lasts a long time. The carton box is sturdy, and it has a magnetized lid that easily opens and closes. The device will outlive box, and I recommend the manufacturer that future products to include a carry-on case or bag. Overall, I am highly satisfied with the Hypervolt, and I use it often You will glad to have one of this after a long work day or after an intense workout.

Hyperice Hypervolt 2 Pro

SPECIFICATIONS
  • PPM: 1700-2700
  • Noise level: 55-65 decibels
  • Battery life: 3 hours
  • Weight: 2.6 pounds
Pros

+Solid and sturdy construction

+Long battery life

+Cushion attachment allows for massage in especially tight or bony areas

REASONS TO AVOID

-No carrying case

-App can be confusing

-Heavy and awkward to hold

The Hypervolt 2 Pro has an exceptional battery life —  at three hours, it outlasts the Theragun Elite and the Theragun Mini by 60 and 30 minutes respectively. The Theragun Pro doubles the Hypervolt 2 Pro’s run time with a six-hour life, but you’ll pay $200 more for that extra three hours. Charging the Pro once got me through an entire week’s worth of testing, with plenty of battery left to spare.  

The Hyperice Hypervolt 2 Pro is a well-made massage gun, especially suited for athletes and advanced users. The basic yet solid construction of the Hyperice Hypervolt 2 Pro makes it a good choice for nearly anyone looking to invest in a high-end massage gun. However, a few key factors gear the Pro towards a more experienced user.  

The Hyperice App is capable of leading accomplished athletes through comprehensive programing for a competitive edge. A variety of textured attachments combined with a speedy 2700 PPM effectively releases the tightest trigger points and muscle groups.  

The downsides here are that the gun is slightly awkward to hold, and doesn’t come with a carry case, which could be an issue if you plan on traveling with the gun. Since it’s pretty sturdy, you could most likely get away with cushioning it between some thick sweatshirts and tossing it in your bag. But on the other hand, if I’m going to pay a few hundred bucks for a massage gun, I’d like to know that it could be protected appropriately during transport.
