Recently I published a short piece on massage gun benefits, and I’ve also been doing a lot of testing on the best massage guns. I’m now happy to be able to publish my brief massage gun reviews based on my experiences trying the different brands. Please understand that the following is only my opinion, and I still have to do a lot more research on what the best massage guns are. But for now, here are my short reviews of what I believe to be the 4 best massage guns there are on the market right now. I believe the TimTam All New Power Massager is the best one right now. If I have the time, I’ll also try out any new massage guns that come out on the market later and update this post with them.
As stated in the title, this piece is a work in progress and I hope to add more detail later.
TimTam All New Power Massager
Available for $250 on Amazon at the time of writing, I found the TimTam All New Power Massager to be by far the best value massage gun when many others are selling in the $400-$600 range. Despite its low price, this one really packs a punch — you can really feel it working your muscles, and the power seemed to be far greater than others I tried. If you are new to massages, you may be in for a little bit of a shock when you use this, and you’ll have to take some care to use it in a way that doesn’t apply too much pressure. Once you get a handle on it, though, it really does work wonders, and the overall quality is outstanding. View on Amazon.
Hyperice Hypervolt Plus
This is a more advanced massage gun than what TimTam offers, with 5 different speed and power settings (the TimTam massage gun offers just 2) and an excellent build quality. Interestingly, this was the quietest massage gun I tried — you can barely hear it. Moreover, the different power settings really come in handy depending on how sore you are and how much you working your muscles. The main downside is the price ($449), and I recommend the TimTam massage gun for those purchasing a massage gun for the first time – the Hyperice Hypervolt Plus is probably not worth the additional cost for most.

Achedaway Vibration and Percussion Massager
This one is quite similar to the Hyperice Hypervolt Plus, again coming with 5 power and speed settings and coming in at a fairly similar price point ($399). I found it to be reliable, easy-to-use and really well made, and I can definitely recommend it as an alternative to the Hypervolt Plus. Like with that product, however, I am only giving it 4 stars due to its higher price point. But if you have the TimTam massage gun and want to upgrade to something with more power settings, and you have the cash to spend, you can’t go wrong with this one. View on Amazon.
Sportneer Percussive Massage Gun
At a price of only $120, this is by far the cheapest massage gun I tried and a decent choice for those who are curious about massage guns and just want something simple to try out and see if it works for them. However, you will probably find yourself wanting to upgrade if you really get hooked on using these products. The Sportneer Percussive Massage Gun is tiny compared to the above 3 massage guns I tested, and the battery life is much more limited. View on Amazon.
