  • Quiet brushless motor
  • 55 – 75 Db

  • Free access to Sonic online video library
  • Portable case included

The Sonic massage gun from LifePro is an excellent choice due to the money back lifetime guarantee and the complete access to the online video library. In addition to this, the reviews are also near perfect from buyers.

The Sonic massage gun is one of the more stylish looking designs on the market and has plenty of features to provide a range of massage capability.

The 5 interchangeable massage heads included consist of the standard round head, the u-shaped spinal massager, 2 x bullet shaped massage heads to target joints and muscle knots and the flat massage head.

The 5 speed intensity levels vary from 20 Hz low pressure to a more powerful 45 Hz. The range of the RPM is 1200 – 2800 so this is a good option if you are looking for a massage gun that is a little less intense than some of the others in this sort of price range.

The battery life is fairly good, ranging from 3 to 6 hours depending on the intensity setting used and everything comes in a handy carry case making this a highly portable massage device.

As previously mentioned there is a lifetime money back guarantee offered by LifePro as well as a 30 day return policy in the unlikely event you are not entirely pleased with the massage gun.

Also on purchasing this Sonic massage gun you gain free access to an online video library and lifetime support.

On the whole the buyer reviews for this massage gun are extremely positive and there are plenty of them to read through.

The main highlights mentioned by many are how lightweight yet powerful this massage gun is. Many love how simple the massager is to use and the portable carry case is also very good to keep your massage gun protected while on the move.

Many buyers are also highly impressed by how long the battery life lasts.

Take a look at some of the Buyer reviews for the Sonic massage gun here.  

  • 6 pro designed massage attachments
  • 4 adjustable arm angles
  • 2 speed functionality, 40 PPS (Percussions per second) & 29 PPS
  • 3 ergonomic grips
  • 30 seconds per muscle group improves muscle strength and flexibility
  • 16 mm amplitude for deep tissue work
  • 60 lbs of pressure
  • Advanced deep tissue massage to relieve muscle tension and pain
  • Highly comfortable ergonomic handle
  • Industrial grade motor
  • 75 minute battery life
  • 2 swappable and rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries and charger included
  • Travel case and attachment pouch included
  • Access to Theragun app
  • Quiet functionality (50% quieter than previous models)
  • 2 year limited warranty


The G3PRO professional percussive massage gun is considered by some to be one of the best in the business. Unfortunately due to its high quality it has a fairly high price tag to match.

One of the main highlights of the G3PRO is the adjustable arm which allows the user to get into hard to reach areas a little more easily than some of the cheaper massage guns on the market.

In addition to this the G3PRO massage gun also comes with a slightly wider range of massage head attachments.

The attachments included are

  • Dampener, designed for use on more tender areas and near bones
  • Large ball for larger muscle groups
  • Standard ball for general use
  • Wedge tool for shoulder blades and scraping
  • Thumb attachment for trigger point therapy and lower back area
  • Cone to pinpoint muscle areas

Another highlight of the G3PRO model is that it is 50% quieter than its predecessor model from the company. However since there are no decibel levels mentioned by the manufacturer it is hard to compare the noise level of this massage gun to others on the market.

The G3PRO has 2 speed settings of 40 PPS (Percussions per second) and a slower more sensitive setting of 29 PPS.

Included in the package are two rechargeable batteries that have a battery life of around 75 minutes each and you also get a handy carry case which makes this massage gun great for portability.

Some of the frequent points raised by reviewers of this massage gun focus mostly on the high quality and the power provided, the packaging is also considered to be excellent by most.

The main downside however is the price at which the G3PRO retails at, and some feel it doesn’t match the quality of the product closely enough. Also other users feel the massager is not as quiet as they expected.

If you are looking for a very powerful massage gun this is likely to be an excellent choice for you. On the other hand if you would prefer something more subtle, or at least a massage gun with the option of a more subtle massage then a cheaper model may be more preferable.

Overall, if you have the money and love a strong and versatile massage this may be just the massager you are looking for.

Newest Massage Gun 

Good Functionality – 4.8 out of 5

  • 4 massage head attachments
  • 6 adjustable speed levels
  • Highest speed setting up to 3200 PPM (Percussions per minute)
  • LCD control panel
  • 2400mAh high-quality lithium-ion battery included
  • Portable package box included
  • Quiet operation under 45 Db
  • 1 – 2 hours battery life at high intensity
  • 30 day money back guarantee
  • One-year limited warranty


The Newest massage gun is fairly similar to the first two massage guns on the list. However, the inclusion of the LCD interface makes it a little more unique.

Overall there is not a huge amount of difference between this model and others on the market.

As with many other massage guns there are 4 different massage head attachments that can each be used to target specific areas.

The ball shaped head is suitable for large muscle groups, the u shaped attachment for vertebrae and the bullet shaped attachment for joints. The flat attachment is suitable for full body use.

The gun has 6 different speed settings up to 3200 percussions per minute. The speed can be adjusted using the LCD screen where the remaining battery life is also displayed as well as an on/off button.

At the top of the massage gun is a multi ventilation heat dissipation system to prevent overheating and prolong the life of the product. The massage gun also features overload protection which automatically shuts the massager off if it overheats.

The Newest massage gun does not have a huge number of buyer reviews just yet, however, from the small number it has, you can see that many find this to be a great product that ticks all the right boxes.

Many love it since it is very easy to use and fairly comfortable. It is also fairly lightweight and fairly quiet in operation compared to other similar massagers.

One thing to also point out is that this massage gun is a good choice if you prefer a less aggressive massage. Since the highest setting is around 3200 PPM and there are 5 settings below that for those who prefer a gentler massage from time to time.

Massage Gun Buyers Guide

If you are unfamiliar with massage guns and would like to know what some of the features do, take a look below. In addition to this you can also find general info on prices and warranties.

General Pricing

Most massage guns are priced between $100 – $500, although you may occasionally find some slightly cheaper or more expensive.

When it comes to price the most expensive massage guns are not necessarily the best! In fact you often find some of the more expensive massage guns have worse buyer reviews and ratings simply because buyers didn’t feel they received value for money.

Obviously there are occasionally some benefits to buying one of the more top end massage guns. For example, the G3PRO massage gun listed above may be easier for some to use when compared to other massagers of this sort, due to its rotational arm angles for hard to reach spots.

In addition to this the Theragun G3PRO is more durable and high in quality than many other massage guns. There are some users however, that still feel it is a bit overpriced.

The vast majority will likely find that spending $150 – $200  on a massage gun is fairly good value for money. And there are plenty of very well rated options available at this sort of price.

Warranties & Returns

When buying a product of this sort you are likely to want a warranty included. Electric massage products can occasionally be temperamental straight out of the box, and while it is fairly unlikely you will have any problems, it is still worth safeguarding against.

The warranty length on most massage guns is often clearly listed on the products page and the warranty usually lasts up to a year. On more expensive guns the warranty may be a couple of years. You will also find some sellers offer a 30 – 90 day money back period for unhappy buyers.

If you are unsure about the warranty offered by the seller of the massage gun, we recommend having a look through the reviews and FAQ’s as you will likely find your answer there.

It is certainly a wiser choice to get a massage gun with a warranty included.

Massage Gun Interchangeable Massage Heads

Massage gun head attachments gifMost massage guns will come with at least 4 interchangeable massage heads that each have a different purpose.

These usually include:

  • The ball shaped head – Used on larger bulk muscle groups for example, waist, back, buttocks, thighs, and calves
  • The U-shaped fork head – Ideal for spine, neck, shoulder and Achilles areas. Great for sensitive and bony areas
  • The bullet shaped head – Used for joints and more precise deep tissue massage, as well as smaller muscle areas
  • The flat head – For muscle relaxation and plasticity on any body area, suitable for general use

Some massage guns come complete with around 5 or 6 massage heads, although you will find with many that there is simply a second larger ball shaped head included.

The 6th more uncommon head included with some models is often a claw shaped head, fairly similar to the bullet with a curved more pointed end.

Intensity/Speed Settings, RPM, Percussions Per Minute,

Massage Gun RPM GIFWhen potentially looking to buy a massage gun have a look at the speed intensity settings and also buyer reviews to get an idea of how powerful the massage gun is.

You will generally find that most massage guns have around 5 speed settings and these are usually described as either RPM or Percussions per minute.

As an example the Sunba Youth massage gun at the top of the list has speeds of (RPM) –

  • 1200
  • 1500
  • 2100
  • 2800
  • 3600

Speed settings do tend to vary from model to model. Therefore if you have never used a massage gun before, it is probably a good idea to read buyer reviews to get an idea of how intense (or how weedy) the settings are.

In a few cases you may find some buyers who find certain guns too intense. Luckily due to the high quality design of most massage guns there are barely ever users that find the massage too weak, especally when reading reviews on the more highly rated options.

Noise Levels

How loud is a massage gun? Many manufacturers are trying to reduce the amount of noise their massage gun makes and if you are looking for a more silent option the seller will often have this information labelled clearly.

Whether you need a fairly quiet massage gun is completely down to each individual. If you live alone for example it probably isn’t a huge issue, on the other hand if you are wanting to use your massage gun at the gym after a workout, a more silent option is probably more preferable.

If we take a look at some of the noise levels of the massage guns in the list above, we can see that the last option (The Newest massage gun) claims to operate at below 45 decibels (DB). In the image to the right you can see this is significantly quieter than the 60 – 70 DB usually expected for regular conversation. This makes it a fairly quiet choice.

The LifePro Sonic massage gun (also on the list) has a decibel range of 55 – 75 making it slightly louder.

The G3PRO Theragun states that it is 50% quieter than their previous G2PRO model. However, since the company do not list the noise level in decibels and seem to have failed to answer buyers questions regarding the matter, it is probably worth avoiding the G3PRO if you are in search of a quieter device due to this lack of transparency.

Battery Life

The life of the battery and how long a massage gun takes to charge is always quite easy information to find out.

It is always clearly noted on product pages.

Often there will be a bit of a range for the continuous usage time such as 2 to 4 hours.

This is due to the different intensity settings.

Obviously if you use the massage gun at full intensity the battery will deplete faster when used on a slower setting.

Conclusion

When buying a massage gun there are plenty of very good options in the lowest price bracket. And many of the cheaper massage guns in the $150 range actually have almost perfect ratings.

As the prices for certain massage guns increases the skepticism often follows. If you are paying in excess of $400 for a massage gun it is perfectly acceptable to expect an exceptional product. However, users of some models have even experienced certain expensive brands breaking almost immediately.

Luckily these instances are few and far between, and there is always the safety net of the warranty and money back guarantees in place for many of the more expensive options.

If you feel a more expensive model such as the Theragun G3PRO is worthwhile due to additional features then by all means go for it. The rotational massage head is a great feature that sets it apart from others on the market. You may however, get on just as well with a massage gun that is half the price and that is as equally well rated by others.
