When aches and pains get in your way, soothe your muscles and melt the stress away with a message gun. Finding the best budget massage gun for your needs could do a lot for your mental health, as well as your physical health. Increasing circulation and relieving muscle tension are obvious benefits, but removing stress from your body is worth more to your mental well-being than you might think. Whether you stay on a light setting or seek deep tissue relief, the best massage guns help relieve that pesky muscle pain and work all your trigger points effortlessly. However, high-end massage gun models can be quite expensive. Currently, many massage guns are on sale for black friday. They’re selling out fast, so keep an eye out for our items to stay up to date.

I put my muscles on the line to find out which of these affordable massage guns is worth your time. I started with the most affordable models from the high end and popular massage gun brands Hyperice and Therabody and worked my way up to the cheapest off-brand massagers I could find.

A percussive massager can come in all shapes and sizes, from full-sized guns that look like hair dryers to mini-guns that seem incapable of generating much massaging power for your tense muscles. One model has a strange, triangular body; another incorporates two heads. In the end, I tried to get a good sample of what’s out there, keeping an eye out for products priced at $100 or less.

Sure, that’s the “value” end of the handheld massager category, but that doesn’t mean that none of these devices are outdone when it comes to tackling muscle soreness. Even better, some of the prices listed here may actually be lower, thanks to codes and coupons that come and go.

Like Therabody, Hyperice is a premium brand with prices to match. And speaking of matching, the Hypervolt Go sells for about the same price as the Theragun Mini. But I like the former more, partly because it comes with two heads instead of one and has a more comfortable gun-style design.

It is smaller than the MaxKare and Taotronics models, but also larger than the Naipo and Recoverfun. So let’s call it “medium”.

But, wow, is it powerful – on par with the Theragun in terms of muscle punch. With just three speeds, however, that might prove a bit too much if you prefer a light touch. Hyperice does not provide a travel case, which is inconvenient, and the power adapter is proprietary.

Between this and the Theragun Mini, I would choose this one. But there are cheaper models that are also more versatile, so it’s not my first choice.

Naipo’s massager is the lightest and most compact model of the bunch, with a small but comfortable handle and more percussion force than you’d expect.

Other benefits include five speed settings and four different massage heads. Naipo does not provide a carrying case, which is a bit disappointing. But my only real complaint is that it’s loud, at least compared to the other “minis” in the roundup, the Recoverfun and the Sportneer.

I have seen various coupon or code offers that lower the price of this massager, so you should definitely get it when it is on sale.

The Sportneer Mini 3 closely resembles Recoverfun’s gun, but it’s still a bit “mini-er”. It’s just a hair shorter and lighter, but also just a bit louder (not enough to be distracting, though). It also has a basic LED display, which shows speed, battery level and range – superfluous information, yes, but welcome all the same.

The Mini 3 has two tricks up its sleeve. First of all, in addition to the four standard speed levels, it offers an “AI” mode: a light touch results in a slower speed, but the harder you press, the higher the intensity. It works surprisingly well and as a result, I found myself reaching for this gun more often than the others.

You can also unscrew the barrel from the grip to add up to about an extra 1.6 inches. That’s pretty good, too, since a lot of the minis (including the Recoverfun) are a bit short in the grip, especially for larger hands.

I’m glad Sportneer included a zippered carry case, but sad that there’s only room for two of the four massage heads. The USB-C cord is also quite short. Those issues aside, this is a mini you should definitely consider.

Another model with an often fluctuating price, the MaxKare is big. In fact, he’s the biggest masseur in the group. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just makes it harder to travel with. To this end, MaxKare provides both a zippered carrying case and a shoulder bag, to better transport the six included massage heads.

The controls are a little confusing at first, as what looks like a power button on the back of the device is the button that toggles between the gun’s five different speeds. Power is actually controlled by an on-off switch located at the bottom of the handle. Then there’s a mode button that toggles between ‘warm-up’, ‘relaxation’ and ‘deep tissue’ modes – all of which just do intermittent speed changes as you massage. But be prepared for a weapon with a little more bulk and weight than most.

The Triangle Mini wields impressive strength for its size, but its shape makes it difficult to hold comfortably. Additionally, Therabody provides only one accessory, a ball head; other models here come with at least two, if not four or even six – for a lower price.

Even at its lowest three speeds, the Mini feels stronger than many other guns I’ve tried. In fact, those looking for just a light, relaxing massage might find it a bit too powerful.

Meanwhile, the unit relies on a proprietary power adapter, not USB-C. It’s one more thing to take on a trip – and the adapter doesn’t even fit in Therabody’s comfortable zippered carrying case.

While I’m glad to have this on hand for deep tissue relief, it’s hard to recommend otherwise. There are too many other models with more features and lower prices.

Available in three colorways (including a rather dazzling red), the Recoverfun Mini is one of my favorite massagers of the bunch. Although it’s heavier than Naipo’s equally compact model, with a metal body that feels a little cold until it warms up, it’s also surprisingly quiet. (When you’re trying to relax, extra noise doesn’t help.)

The gun offers four speed settings and Recoverfun provides the “big four” attachments: Bullet, Bullet, Fork, and Flat. The dish is made of aluminum, which offers no obvious advantage, but it looks really cool. You also get a corded carrying case, although you have to provide your own powered USB port for the USB-C charging cable.

As big hair dryer style massage guns, the TaoTronics offers a lot to like. It’s reasonably light for its size, smaller and quieter than MaxKare’s similarly designed model. The metallic green coloring adds a bit of flair and I liked the partially square handle.

TaoTronics provides six interchangeable heads and everything fits neatly into the included zippered case – although the latter is actually a bit larger than MaxKare’s. Traveling with it would require sacrificing a large piece of suitcase.

The big standout feature here is the speed control, which has settings ranging from 1 to 20. Almost every other massager here gives you maybe four or five. How many gears does one person really need? I don’t know, but this massage gun also stands out with its unmatched 4.9-star rating from over 2,300 buyers.

You know the old adage: Two heads are better than one. But is this true of massage guns? I thought Fishda’s Frankenstein was just a gimmick, but damn it if it doesn’t offer twice the muscle power. For larger areas like thighs and glutes, I really enjoyed this “bigger” massager.

Luckily, it’s not twice as strong as other firearms; in fact, it’s surprisingly quiet. It also has a relatively compact shape, essentially a taller version of the Recoverfun Mini. But there is weight: at 1.7 pounds, it weighs more than any other gun in its size class. Expect arm fatigue to set in a little sooner with this one.

It’s also pricey compared to other models, although that’s to be expected given the dual heads. However, you can often find coupons that significantly lower the price.

  • Lester: 1 pound, 11 ounces
  • Charging method: USB-C
  • Number of heads included: Four (times two)
  • Carrying case included: cord
