Affordable Massage Guns That Cost $120 Or Less
Let’s be realistic, not everyone is inclined to pay $350 or more for a Hypervolt massage gun. We would be willing to bet that you’re probably looking for the best, most affordable massage guns that won’t break the bank and aren’t complete junk. Are we right?
Does such a massage gun really even exist?
While it is true that “you get what you pay for” often applies, there are a few exceptions. We went hands-on with the VI PRO Mini, Mebak 3, VI Jigsaw, and the Sylphim to see which cheap massage gun is worth buying. We kept our expectations low and came away impressed.
VI Pro Mini
At $118.95, the VI Pro Mini is easily one of the most impressive massage guns we have ever tried at that price point. In fact, we feel it rivals some devices costing twice the price.
Don’t let its palm sized form factor fool you. The VI Pro Mini delivers a very firm and powerful percussive massage. It’s not quite on par with some more expensive models, but it comes close, real close. Of the four we tested, it delivers the most force.
We appreciated the design and aesthetics of the Vi Pro Mini. The mix of soft touch plastic and metal come together nicely and exude quality. It’s light in the hand at just 1.8lbs, yet feels substantial and sturdy.
The 3-speed 24V brushless motor offers a very pleasant operating experience. With a max decibel rating of 50dB at 2800RPM, it is one of the quietest massage guns we’ve ever tested.
The reliable lithium ion LG 3400 mAh battery offers 3-5 hours of use per full charge.
The VI Pro Mini massage gun comes in a molded case with a charger and 6 attachment heads. Four of them are the standard fair, but the other two have metal wrapped around the tips. This allows you to use any sort of massage oil or cream while using the massager and cleans up easily afterwards. A nice addition not found with most other kits.
Includes a 1 year warranty.
What buyers say: “This massager is everything you want, plus more. It can get so deep and relieve so many types of aches and pains.”

The LifePro Sonic is bargain at just $129.99, and it does not scream “cheap massage gun”. Opening the case, we were taken back by the overall design and feel.
Although on the larger size, it’s really quite comfortable to hold. The Lifepro Sonic is available in 4 different color options: Blue, Black, Red, and Silver.
There are 5 variable levels of intensity ranging from 1200-3000RPM. Operation, even on the highest setting, is non-obtrusive and quiet.
In the box, you will find 5 attachments that are included. Come with LifePro’s infamous LIFETIME WARRANTY.
What buyers say: “I go to the gym regularly so I’m constantly sore and this just hits the spot. It works as it’s supposed to and the functions are strong. The material is also very sturdy, I was surprised by how high quality the material is. Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone.”

The Mebak 3 is an unexpected winner in our book. We can confidently say that the Mebak 3 is a strong contender to being one of the better affordable massage guns out there.
The Mebak 3 looks fantastic! We loved the construction of the soft-touch exterior body. It feels really good to hold and seems very well put together.
In use, it provides a sufficiently strong massage for most of your needs and maintains a moderately low noise level while doing so. Power doesn’t quite match that of more expensive models, but doesn’t lag far behind. Using it on fleshier parts of the body, like the quads, it felt powerful enough to work out the kinks.
One neat little feature about the Mebak 3 is that it includes a force meter to tell you if you’re applying too much pressure. Cool feature at this price point.
Battery life is rated at about 2-3hrs. After extensive use, we never noticed the battery level dropping at a rapid pace.
Included with the Mebak 3 are 6 attachement heads, a charger, extra rubber grommets for the heads in case they wear out and a basic case.
What buyers say: “This thing is awesome and quiet. Battery seems to last for hours, but I’ve only had for a day so we’ll see how battery holds up. Looks and feels SWEET!”

VI Jigsaw Massage Gun
Ok, don’t fault us for having two massage guns from the same company. The VI Jigsaw is a definite winner if you’re looking for a very deep, powerful massage gun with one caveat. At just shy of $100 with our discount code, the VI Jigsaw is a solid offering for those that don’t want to cough up $350 for similar performance.
In testing, we found the performance of the VI Jigsaw to be up there with the best of them. And here’s the caveat we spoke of: unlike the previous two massage guns, the 6 speed motor is quite a bit noisier. While it’s highly recommended by all that buy it, the common complaint is the noise level. It’s loud, but gets the job done.
Unlike most massage guns, the VI Jigsaw does come with 2 detachable batteries. That’s a nice feature to have in case you forget to charge it up.
Inside the included case you’ll find a charger and 3 attachments.
What buyers say: “This affordable massage gun is awesome! Best purchase ever! Six speeds, multiple tips to choose for massages. It’s LOUD, but awesome!”
