Hyperice Hypervolt Go Review

The Hypervolt GO is the mini massage gun from Hyperice, which also launched the well-known Hyperice Hypervolt. I would like to examine whether the small massage gun can follow up on the very good rating of its “big brother” in this review. For this purpose, I will look at the scope of delivery, the usability, the quality, the functionality as well as the volume. In order to be able to carry out the evaluation as optimally as possible, I bought the Hyperice Hypervolt Go myself and used it extensively.

Scope of Delivery and Attachments

The Hyperice Hypervolt Go comes in a compact, white cardboard box. On it are briefly the most important information about the massage gun.

The box contains the following:

  • 1 x Hyperice Hypervolt Go
  • 1 x Flat Head Attachment
  • 1 x Bullet Attachment
  • 1 x Charger
  • 1 x Manual

Thus, the scope of delivery is quite small. Basically, everything you need is included. However, I would have liked to see two things: On the one hand, a carrying bag for transporting the massage gun, including power supply and attachments, should be included. On the other hand, the number of attachments is quite low, especially if the Hypervolt Go is the only massage gun you own. A ball attachment and a fork attachment would have been desirable here.

For the aforementioned reasons, I give it a minus in this category. Nevertheless, I would now like to briefly show you the attachments:

The flat head attachment is a versatile and universally applicable attachment. In principle, it is suitable for all medium-sized and larger muscle groups. Due to its very large, flat contact surfaces, it is particularly recommended for massaging large areas, such as the chest or thighs.

The bullet attachment is virtually the exact opposite of the flat head attachment. It has a pointed, very small contact surface. This means that individual small muscles can be targeted with this attachment. The attachment is also ideal for trigger point massage.

Both attachments make a very solid impression and appear quite stable as well as cleanly manufactured. The surfaces also feel pleasant on the skin. I cannot criticize anything here.



The Hypervolt Go has the following three power levels:

  • 1st Level: 2,200 rpm
  • 2nd Level: 2,750 rpm
  • 3rd Level: 3,200 rpm

The selection of power levels could be bigger. And the range of impact frequencies still has potential in the lower range. Nevertheless, the levels are perfectly sufficient for normal use. Thus, all levels feel very good and especially intense. Even the first level is enough to treat sore muscles very well.

The depth of impact is also very good. Thus, during the massage, it indeed felt as if it massaged deep into the musculature. Especially compared to the other massagers in this size class, the Hyperice Hypervolt Go can hold its own strongly here.

Unfortunately, I could not find an exact indication of the amplitude either in the gun’s documentation or in the manufacturer’s description. I find this very unfortunate since no real comparison with competing products is possible.

However, there is information about the motor’s power. This is 40 watts. This is actually quite little for a massage gun. Nevertheless, the Hypervolt Go has a lot of power. The motor did not stall even when I pressed on very hard with the gun. That is usually the case with a weak motor.

There is no pressure sensor or anything similar. However, such additional features are not included in almost any mini massage gun.


Usability and Handling

One of the most important points why you buy a mini massage gun, besides saving space, is the handling. And here, the Hypervolt Go does not have to hide. A significant factor here is the weight of the gun. This is just 1.36 lbs (617 g) without attachment or 1.44 lbs (653 g) with flat head attachment. This makes the massage gun much lighter than most of its competitors.

Furthermore, the handle is rubberized. This prevents the gun from slipping out of your hand. Due to the lightweight, the rubber coating, and the small diameter of the handle, the Hyperice Hypervolt Go does not feel heavy even when used for hours.

The Hypervolt Go also scores in terms of usability. The entire control is done via a single button. This is located on the handle facing the front.

When the button is held, the motor of the massage gun starts. By pressing the button, the three power levels are switched through. By holding the button again, the motor is switched off again. This is really child’s play.

The current level is displayed via three lights on the underside of the handle.


Power Supply

For the power supply, the Hypervolt Go contains a battery with a capacity of 2,350 mAh. This is quite an average value for a massage gun. The same applies to the runtime, which is stated at around 2.5 hours. I can roughly confirm this value through my practical test. If you use the gun for about 10 minutes a day, you only have to recharge it every two weeks.

The included power adapter and cable are simply used for charging. This is plugged into the bottom of the mini massage gun and connected to a power source. I find it very good that the power supply comes with three additional plug adapters so that it can also be taken on trips without hesitation.

The current battery status is indicated by an illuminated ring at the bottom of the handle. This lights up green, yellow or red. If the battery is still full, the light is colored green. Yellow means that the battery has already been used up, and a red light symbolizes that the battery is almost empty. Unfortunately, a more precise indication of the charge level depending on the color of the light cannot be found.

Unfortunately, the battery cannot be replaced. For this, there are deductions from me. If the battery is defective, the entire massage gun has to be replaced.



To determine the volume of Hyperice’s Hypervolt Go, I took a measurement from a distance of 40 cm. I was able to measure the following data:

  • 1st Level: ~ 55 dB to 56 dB – similar to a conversation
  • 2nd Level: ~ 57 dB to 58 dB – similar to a loud TV
  • 3rd Level: ~ 59 dB to 51 dB – similar to a loud conversation

Thus, the massage gun is definitely not the quietest. Nevertheless, the volume is within an acceptable range. Only on the highest level did I find the volume very high. I would therefore not recommend the Hypervolt Go for use in a (very) quiet area, such as an office.


Material and Quality

When I looked at the material of the Hyperice Hypervolt Go, I immediately noticed that the massage gun is mostly made of plastic. This applies to both the gun itself and the attachments. In addition, the handle is rubberized.

All in all, the Hypervolt Go does not look quite as sturdy as metal models. Nevertheless, it basically makes a high-quality impression. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that the material is quite thick and stable. The matte color also makes a positive impression.

On the other hand, workmanship plays a decisive role. I could not find any flaws in the workmanship of the Hypervolt Go. All edges are clean. The gaps are also comparatively small.

Only the smell caused a deduction in this category. In itself, the mini massage gun actually smells quite pleasantly “new”. But the rubber handle has a typical unpleasant smell. This has a chemical effect on me and even stains my fingers. Only after many hours has this scent gradually dissipated.


Price Performance

I paid 161.70 € for the Hyperice Hypervolt Go myself. When I wrote the review, the price was around $199. This makes the model one of the most expensive mini-massage guns on the market.

From a purely price-performance point of view, I, therefore, cannot recommend it. However, it offers an intense, deep massage, which hardly any other device of this size has. However, there are models with a better overall package and a lower price. These include the BLACKROLL Fascia Gun. In my test, it was able to achieve a higher rating at a similar price.


Conclusion – Hyperice Hypervolt Go Review


Overall, the Hyperice Hypervolt Go is a very good mini massage gun. It combines the features that such a compact device should have – the gun is light, small, very handy, and easy to use. In addition, it has a powerful motor, so an intense massage is possible.

Of course, the Hypervolt Go does not only bring advantages. The weaknesses of the mini Hypervolt include the comparatively high price. In addition, I personally miss more attachments as well as a carrying case in the scope of delivery. The gun could also be a bit quieter.
