A handheld massager can help relieve muscle soreness and stiffness, promotes circulation, improves range of motion, accelerate warmup and recovery, etc. There are varieties of handheld massagers, they have different speeds, differents head attachments, different appearances. This leads that different handheld massagers have a distinct performance and suit for different kinds of people. Besides, all the handheld massagers have their own disadvantages. Therefore, before you buy a massager, it is very necessary to read some detail reviews about them so that you can choose the most suitable one. We have selected the best handheld massagers and the corresponing reviews are given as follows. We really hope this post could help you!

Hyperice Hypervolt

Hyperice Hypervolt is made by Hyperice. It has a modern appearance with cordless design. It’s one of the most futuristic looking massagers on our list. When we put a cord massager next to a Hypervolt, I feel like the Hypervolt is an artifact left behind by a time traveler from the 24th century. That’s how good the design is.

Hypervolt is known as the quietest massage device with ite unique Quiet Glide technology. It has a high-torque motor and three adjustable speed settings delivering up to 3,200 percussions per minute so that it allows you to get the right and appropriate amount of pressure to relieve your muscle pain.

Besides, it provides 4 head attachments for different muscle areas. The fork attachment is really useful to release your traps. The bullet head will be the best to massage a very specific area like trigger points or anywhere else that you want. The damper head has a thud-like effect. The ball head will be better for large muscle groups or anywhere you might want to give a kick. In a short, with these different head attachments, you can easily customize your recovery work to any specific region of your body. It provides more options than a foam roller or other static mobility devices.

What we like

The very first thing we absolutely love about Hypervolt is its balance. It makes a balance between the intensity and the voice. You must want to keep a massager with some degrees of intensity but not too loud. Trust us, Hypervolt is what you want to own.

For a cordless massager, what people are concerned mostly is the battery life. Hypervolt is equipped with a lithium-ion battery (this is one of the reasons it cost a little higher price) with up to 3 hours of use per charge. This is very extraordinary compared with other cordless handheld massagers.

Additionally, its weight is about 2.5 lbs which is light for a cordless massager. Therefore, it is easy-to-use for self-myofascial release.

What we don’t like

If we have to find out something we don’t like, the first fact is that it is unconvenient for back massage by ourselves after we used it several times. At this moment, you have to ask for a partner to help you massage your back.

Another fact is the price. It is more expensive than most of the handheld massagers, Although we think it deserves this price.


  • Cordless design
  • Quiet
  • Different speeds
  • Long battery life
  • Powerful


  • Unconvenient for back by ourselves.
  • Price

Theragun G3PRO

Theragun G3PRO is one of the world’s leading handheld massager brands with a lot of professional athlete customers. Theragun G3PRO is a powerful cordless device that effectively provides deep muscle treatment unlike typical massagers. It comes in a really cool design which looks like a jigsaw.

What we like

Powerful. Theragun G3PRO is a pretty good cordless massager. It is the most powerful massager among all the handheld massager. If you are professional athletes, sports fans or someone who really needs high intensity percussion, this device is really suitable for you.

Design. The ergonomically designed handle allows you to reach every part of your body for complete muscle activation, muscle pain, soreness, and tightness relief. It has four arm positions so that you can adjust its arm angle for different muscle areas. It also provides 4 AmpBIT head attachments: Standard Ball AmpBIT (for entire body), Large Ball AmpBIT (for large muscle groups), Cone AmpBIT (for deep tissue and trigger points), and Dampener AmpBIT (for bone and sensitive areas). Therefore, with different arm positions and head attachements, your whole body will obtain a good massage.

What we don’t like

Sound. To tell the truth, it is also the loudest handheld massager. incredibly loud! So you have to enjoy its power with the tolerance of loud voice.

Its battery life is one battery for 40-45mins. It is sufficient for only one person. However, if you are a therapist or use it frequently, you have to pick more batteries.

Another thing we don’t like is that it has only one speed setting. So you cannot adjust its intensity for different using.


  • Very powerful
  • Reach every part of your body
  • Different arm positions and different head attachments
  • Cordless
  • 2.47LB, an acceptable heavy
  • Deluxe protective carrying case


  • Louder! Incredibly loud

Pure Wave CM7

pure wave cm7

Pure Wave CM7 is the most popular handheld massager which are recommended by chiropractors, physical therapists, and sports trainers.

What we like

It has dual motor functionality which means that it can treat your pain from head to toe even work on your face(It should be mentioned that only the small side can be used for face). Most of the existing massagers cannot be used for face massage.

Besides, the slight curve design makes it easier to massage your back and legs. Its length is sufficient to massage any place of your body.

What we don’t like

Although its battery life lasts for 180 minutes which is longest in our selected massager, the quality of its battery is still a problem. Some users reflect that after a few dozen uses the battery won’t charge and it won’t run for more than a minute or two.

This is the only thing we don’t like! However, compared with Theragun G2PRO and Hypervolt, its price is more attractive.


  • Dual motor functionality
  • Face massage
  • Slight curve design for every part of your body
  • Only weighs 1.75 pounds


  • Battery life

After contacting the seller, they made up for it with very excellent customer service. So you don’t worry about the quality of RENPHO. They provide 12 Months No-worry support!
