Hyperice Hypervolt 2 Pro review

Trust us, this one is for The Great Khali

₹ 38,999

The Hyperice Hypervolt series of products are percussion devices meant to be portable, versatile and easy to use. The Hypervolt 2 Pro here is the pro version of the already formidable Hypervolt 2. We reviewed the Hypervolt 2 a few months ago and if you’re not trying to be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger, the 2 is mostly the perfect device. 

Although, if you spend all of your waking hours wrestling or attempting to win the next bodybuilding competition, the Hyperice Hypervolt 2 Pro is exactly what you need.


Much like the Hypervolt 2, the 2 Pro follows the same design language. Industrial look with a straight pill-shaped grip housing a similar battery to the Hyperice 2. Only this time, you can remove the battery grip and swap it for a freshly charged one. This means the 2 Pro can keep going even if you run out of muscles to mash it against. The ring-shaped LED light is also here and it’s quite useful for indicating the battery life.

The biggest change however is the way you interact with this 5-speed percussion device. Power and speed buttons are no longer one and the same. There’s a nifty little switch under the grip which turns the thing on or off.

The Hypervolt 2 Pro also comes with an infinity wheel that lets you adjust the speed. This is the easiest way to interact and adjust the speed with a Hypervolt product. We wish it was there on the Hypervolt 2 as well. Obviously, the Bluetooth connection via the free app is great too but only if you’re following a routine from the app. That said, the tactile feedback from the infinity wheel and the overall soft-touch finish on the Hypervolt 2 Pro is simply exquisite.


As we mentioned, the 2 Pro is a very mature device meant to be used by actual pros. Unlike the tech companies that abused the pro moniker. It’s a product centred around professionals and folks that deal with the business of muscle. The interchangeable battery is a testament to the commitment. If you’re a gym owner then the Hypervolt 2 Pro’s swappable battery is truly reasonable when sharing the device with multiple customers.

It’s also got a 90W motor compared to the 60W on the Hypervolt 2. The stall force is 27kgs on this Pro device and 18kgs on the non-Pro Hypervolt which means the Hypervolt 2 Pro can dig deeper into the muscle tissues without stopping. You can attack all the sore muscles hiding under your bodybuilder physique. 

Although the top PPM (percussions per minute) remain the same on both devices, the Hypervolt 2 Pro has a 5-level speed adjustment. So it’s more to do with subtle differences between the lowest and highest speeds rather than just battering your muscles at unnecessary speeds. This allows you to attack all types of muscles with careful ppm control along with a higher stall force.

The device is also top-heavy which means the Hypervolt 2 Pro will naturally fall on its head without dilly-dallying around your body because of the motor’s vibrations. It’s these little qualities of life changes on the Pro that make it a truly focused product in the percussion massage segment.


Most people will not need more than the Hyperice Hypervolt Go and some might even want the Hypervolt 2 but very few will actually need the nuanced pressure control, higher stall force and the swappable battery of the Hypervolt 2 Pro. It’s made to attack thick layers of muscle and tissue and for people who are constantly striving to be at the peak of physical fitness.

Heck, even the Indian Hyperice ambassador and athlete-investor Virat Kohli might not need the 2 Pro. The Hyperice Hypervolt 2 is adequate for most people. That said, for the folks that do actually have layers of body muscle and require muscle relief and recovery, the Hypervolt 2 Pro is quite useful and monkey-easy to use.

The swappable battery is more tempting to business owners than individuals because the battery life is around three hours, and in our opinion, that’s plenty enough. As for the app and the five interchangeable heads, it pretty much works the same way it did when we tested the Hypervolt 2 and you can read about it here.
