Bob and Brad D6 Pro Review

The Bob and Brad D6 Pro is a new top model from the American brand. Visually, the massage gun is very similar to the Therabody massagers, such as the Theragun Pro or the Theragun Elite. In terms of performance, it also initially appears similar to the massage guns and has an amplitude of 16 mm. But can it really keep up with the high-priced devices? That’s what I want to find out in this test report.

I have tested the Bob and Brad D6 Pro extensively myself. I present my results to you in this review. I’ll also tell you whether it’s worth buying.

First of all: I received this product free of charge from Bob and Brad for my test. Nevertheless, I have tried to evaluate the massage gun as objectively as possible.

  • The Bob and Brad D6 Pro is one of the brand’s premium models. Visually, it is similar to the Therabody massage guns and was able to keep up with them very well in my test.
  • The D6 Pro has a powerful motor and a large impact depth of 16 mm. This makes it very good for an intensive massage of the muscles. Accordingly, the focus is on athletes as the device’s main target group.
  • However, relaxing massages are not really possible due to the high intensity.
  • The volume (up to 62 dB) is also rather high. Nevertheless, the background noise is bearable and still quieter than the Theragun Pro, for example.
  • Unfortunately, there is no replaceable battery.
  • The price of the Bob and Brad D6 Pro is very fair. This is especially true when you consider how high-quality the massage gun looks, how easy it is to use, and how extensive the scope of delivery is.

Scope of Delivery and Attachments

The Bob and Brad D6 Pro comes in a rather large, white, and high-quality looking packaging.

When you open the box, you will find a carrying bag containing the massage gun and accessories.

In total, the following is supplied:

  • 1 x Bob and Brad D6 Pro
  • 1 x Ball Attachment
  • 1 x Flat Head Attachment
  • 1 x Round Head Attachment
  • 1 x Bullet Attachment
  • 1 x Cushion Attachment
  • 1 x Dampener Attachment
  • 1 x Wedge Attachment
  • 1 x Carry Bag
  • 1 x Attachment Carry Bag
  • 2 x USB-C Cable
  • 1 x Charger
  • 1 x Manual

As you can see, the list is quite long, which speaks for the scope of the accessories. I can’t criticize anything here either. Everything you could wish for in a massage gun is included.

It is particularly noticeable that a total of seven different attachments are included. I will now go into these in more detail:

The ball attachment is a standard attachment on most massage guns. It is therefore hardly surprising that it is also supplied with the Bob and Brad D6 Pro. The attachment is very suitable for massaging all large and medium-sized muscle groups.

The flat head attachment is also a standard attachment. It normally has a fairly large surface area. The D6 Pro is slightly different. Here, the attachment is rather narrow and concentrates the power of the massager on a rather small area.

The round head attachment is more similar to the flat head attachments of other massage guns. It has a large contact surface, which is slightly curved. It is therefore suitable for massaging large areas, for example, the chest and thigh muscles.

The bullet attachment has an even smaller tip than the flat head attachment. This means that the force is concentrated even more on a single point. This massage head can be used in a more targeted and intensive manner. It is therefore used for trigger point massage, for example.

The air cushion attachment absorbs the shocks and transfers them to a fairly large area. The combination of these two properties means that the force of the massage gun is greatly dampened. This attachment can therefore be used very well on more sensitive areas.

The dampener attachment also absorbs the force of the Bob and Brad D6 Pro. However, the damping effect is not as strong as with the air cushion attachment. In terms of power transmission, the dampener attachment lies between the air cushion and the ball attachment. Accordingly, it is also very versatile.

The last massage head is the wedge attachment. It is suitable for massaging along the shoulder blades and IT bands. It can also be used to perform scraping movements, for example to transport lymphatic fluid.

The scope of delivery therefore includes massage heads that can be used in a variety of ways. These cover most areas of application. Only two things would have been desirable. One would be the fork attachment. This can be used to massage ligaments, bones and tendons, for example along the spine. Secondly, a massage head on metal would have been desirable. This would also allow oil or gel to be used during the massage.

However, all of this is criticism at a high level. Even with the current scope of delivery, the Bob and Brad D6 Pro belongs to the upper class in this category. In addition, both the feel of the attachments on the skin and their quality are very good.



The Bob and Brad D6 Pro has a manual mode and three automatic settings. In manual mode, you can choose between the following six speed levels:

  • 1st Level: 1,500 rpm
  • 2nd Level: 1,700 rpm
  • 3rd Level: 1,900 rpm
  • 4th Level: 2,100 rpm
  • 5th Level: 2,300 rpm
  • 6th Level: 2,500 rpm

In my opinion, the number of levels is well chosen. The intervals are also quite well chosen, although I would have liked them to be a little larger, so that the number of strokes is between 1,200 and 3,000. The massage is already quite intense, especially at the first level. This could be a little too strong, especially for beginners. However, as the Bob and Brad D6 Pro is aimed at athletes, users should already have experience with such a massager.

As already mentioned, the massage gun also has three automatic programs/modes. These play the different power levels automatically. Program 1 and 2 run through the levels from top to bottom and bottom to top respectively. In the third program, all available stroke rates are activated in quick succession in 100 RPM steps in wave form. The whole thing is very practical, as it makes it easy to give a variety of massages.

The impact depth is also very good. According to the manufacturer, it is 16 mm for the Bob and Brad Q6 Pro. This makes it very easy to reach the deep tissue. I noticed this in my test. The massage was not just superficial, but felt like deep strokes into the muscles.


Usability and Handling

Operating the Bob and Brad Q6 Pro is very simple. There are two buttons below the display. The upper button can be used to switch the massage gun on and off by holding it. Simply pressing the button when the motor is switched on switches to the next higher power level.

The lower button also has several functions. On the one hand, it can change down through the power levels when the motor is switched on. The button stops the motor by holding it down briefly. It can then switch between manual mode and automatic programs.

The controls are correspondingly uncomplicated and can be understood within a very short time.

Thanks to its shape, the massage gun also has two handles. I like the rear, longer one much better. It is nice and thin and easy to grip. The front handle, on the other hand, is much thicker and does not fit as well in the hand.

The adjustable arm is a plus in terms of ergonomics. This can be adjusted to four different positions. This means that the Bob and Brad Q6 can be individually adjusted to massage different parts of the body, making it much more comfortable to use. This is a feature I have only seen on the Theragun Pro and the RENPHO R4.

Unfortunately, I was less impressed by the weight. According to my measurements, it weighs 2.87 lbs (1,304 g) with the ball attachment and 2.82 lbs (1,277 g) without the attachment. That’s quite an announcement. With this weight, the D6 Pro is clearly one of the heaviest massage guns on the market. Unfortunately, this is clearly noticeable with prolonged use, which makes it more strenuous to use after a while.


Power Supply

The Bob and Brad Q6 Pro is powered by a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 2,500 mAh. According to the brand, this should be enough to operate the massager for up to 180 minutes. This is quite realistic on a low setting. If you switch between the individual shock frequencies, I think a runtime of 2 to 3 hours is realistic, which is still a good value.

The current battery status is shown on the OLED display during use. The display is based on a battery symbol with four bars. In my opinion, this is a fairly accurate display compared to many other models.

USB cables and a mains adapter are supplied to charge the battery. These are plugged directly into the massage gun. Charging takes just a few hours. The current charge level is also displayed, which is a positive feature. I also like the fact that the modern USB-C standard is used.

However, I also have to criticize something here. The battery is not replaceable. That is problematic. If the battery breaks, the entire device has to be replaced. Therabody has solved this much better with the Theragun Pro. The battery is replaceable and a spare battery is even supplied.



As with all the massage guns in my test, I measured the volume of the Bob and Brad D6 Pro from a distance of 40 cm. I obtained the following values:

  • 1st Level: ~ 54 dB to 55 dB – similar to a (loud) TV
  • 2nd Level: ~ 55 dB to 56 dB – similar to a talk (normal volume)
  • 3rd Level: ~ 56 dB to 57 dB – similar to a talk (normal volume)
  • 4th Level: ~ 58 dB to 59 dB – similar to a talk (normal volume)
  • 5th Level: ~ 59 dB to 60 dB – similar to a loud voice
  • 6th Level: ~ 61 dB to 62 dB – similar to a loud voice

The massage gun therefore already starts at the first level with a fairly high volume. However, the increase up to the highest level is not particularly strong. The Bob and Brad D6 Pro is therefore one of the louder, but not the loudest devices.

However, I would not recommend this model for a particularly relaxing wellness massage as it is too loud for this. However, as the massage gun is primarily aimed at athletes, this should not be a problem.


Material and Quality

The Bob and Brad brand has opted for plastic as the main material. Nevertheless, the D6 massage gun makes a very solid impression on me. This is partly due to the matt black surface. This looks chic and modern.

On the other hand, no mistakes have been made in the workmanship, on the contrary: the massage gun has a very high-quality finish. I couldn’t find any sharp edges or other disturbing elements. Care has even been taken to ensure that the gaps are small!

Cheaper massage guns in particular have a problem with the smell. Although it is not cheap and is otherwise of high quality, this unfortunately also applies to the Bob and Brad D6, at least to the attachments. These are largely made of silicone and emit a chemical odor. This only disappears after a long time.


Price Performance

As already mentioned, I was provided with the Bob and Brad D6 Pro free of charge for the test. When I tested it shortly afterward, the RRP was $249.99. With a coupon, the price could even be temporarily reduced to $189.99. In my opinion, the price is very fair. Massage guns with similar specifications, such as those from Therabody, cost a lot more. Nevertheless, the D6 Pro naturally has some weaknesses that should not be present at such a price. I, therefore, rate the price-performance ratio as “good” to “very good”.


Conclusion – Bob and Brad D6 Pro Review


The Bob and Brad D6 Pro is visually similar to the massage guns from Therabody. And it doesn’t have to hide from its big-name competitors either.

The D6 Pro impresses with a powerful motor, a very good impact depth and very easy operation. It also comes with a total of seven (!) attachments, so that the right accessory is supplied for every application.

A special feature is the adjustable massage arm. Thanks to this, the massage gun can be individually adjusted to massage different parts of the body. This makes it much easier to use, even if it is not ideal due to its heavy weight.

However, the weight is not the only disadvantage of the Bob and Brad D6. The massager is also quite loud and the attachments smell quite strongly of chemicals.

However, these points of criticism are rather minor and within reason. For me, the D6 Pro from Bob and Brad is still one of the best massage guns and is also available at a fair price. I therefore give it a clear recommendation!
