If you have or are looking to purchase a percussion massager, you may be wondering what makes their products unique. In this article, you’ll learn about the similarities and differences between Theragun G3PRO and Hypervolt Plus (including how they compare in cost).
How are Theragun and Hypervolt similar?
These high-end percussion massagers have a few noticeable similarities.
Turn off at high pressure
If you use enough pressure, they both will stall out. Honestly, this shouldn’t be an issue unless you’re pressing down with a vengeance!
Both the Theragun G3PRO and Hypervolt Plus weight approximately 3 pounds. This is light enough for most people to use them for an extended period of time.
Keep in mind that both products are premium percussion massagers. They’re built with quality in mind and, hence, come at a higher price tag than knock offs. If competitors come out with similar products that have comparable features and benefits, I do anticipate the price of these devices will go down.

How are Theragun and Hypervolt different?
On the other hand, Theragun G3PRO and Hypervolt Plus have a number of differences to consider.
Speed and amplitude
The Theragun G3PRO has a 16mm amplitude and two speeds at frequencies of 1750 and 2400 RPMs. On the other hand, Hypervolt Plus has a 13 mm amplitude and three speeds at frequencies of 2000, 2600, and 3200 RPMs
Built with Quiet Glide Technology, Hypervolt Plus is quieter than the Theragun G3PRO (but it’s barely a noticeable difference).
The Theragun G3PR comes with 6 (dampener, large ball, standard ball, wedge, thumb, cone) while the Hypervolt Plus comes with 5 (bullet, cushion, fork, round, and flat). These attachment shapes and sizes are fairly different so take note.
The Theragun G3PRO comes with 3 batteries that both have a 75-minute battery life when fully charged. The Hypervolt Plus comes with one batter (that is nicely built into its design) and has a 120-minute battery life when fully charged.
The Theragun G3PRO has 4 different adjustable arm angles, the Hypervolt Plus does not. Many find this a nice feature to get to different areas of the body.
As you’ll see below, the Thergun G3PRO is much more expensive than the Hypervolt Pro and I can’t figure out why. You could argue the adjustable arm and amplitude provide more value, but that’s debatable. Keep in mind, both are premium options and are more expensive than what you can find on Amazon.

As of recently, there are now a bunch of percussion massagers on Amazon that start in the low $100s. The question is, are they any good? I haven’t tested any of them myself but I can imagine you get what you pay for.
As I’ve mentioned in both reviews, the cheapest route would be the homemade versions that utilize a jigsaw tool and a lacrosse ball. However, this requires way more work than simply pulling out your credit card!
Overall, both the Theragun G3PRO and Hypervolt Plus have their benefits and drawbacks. If you’re looking for a device that has versatility and the largest amplitude on the market, go with the Theragun G3PRO. If you want a premium device that costs less and is the quieter of the two, go with Hypervolt Plus. If both of these price tags give you sticker shock, keep looking (although you may be sacrificing quality to do so). If the price isn’t an issue, you can’t go wrong with either of these percussion massagers!
