"Great product! Highly recommended!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is my first time using a massage gun especially since I can no longer see my massage therapy due to the shutdown of non-essential services.

The massage gun comes with many different attachments for different parts of the body. I shuffle between my quads and lower back as I play badminton very often. I get my wife to assist me with using it on hard to reach areas like my back. It also has 20 adjustable speed levels.

Highly recommended for people who doing the fitness and aerobic exercise regularly.

"Value for money"
5 stars"

Great product! Been wanting a massage gun for a while now and a lot of them are priced around $300 to $500, whereas this $200 mightyape machine is super value for money – looks and feels like the other higher priced items! I've been to many physio and massage therapy sessions and can say that the massage gun is actually a lot stronger for deep muscle soreness – would recommend having a partner to help with the back but otherwise quite easy to use yourself :)

"Worth it"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I looked around for a while before buying one of these. You’ll see lots of places selling similar ones but for much more. I trust MightyApe over some fly-by-night website, and it was a good price. Definitely recommend it.

"Works great"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Works great, but pushed in too hard with it and now produces a funny noise. Also get some black residue on hands when swapping out nozzles

"Incredible"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Honestly I love this thing. Extremely solid massage therapy that you can do yourself. Makes a genuine difference. Device is strong and well built – awesome. Give one of these a go and I doubt you'll be disappointed.

"Money well spent!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I’ve used mine nearly everyday. For sport and gym warm-up and recovery. To get rid of that niggly neck and shoulder tension from sleeping like a pretzel. I wish I’d purchased sooner!

"Decent power, wide array of attachments."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Quite heavy as per most massage guns. The wide range of speeds and options means it will suit whatever you need it for.

"Good gun"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If they replaced all guns with this gun we’d have a happier world!! Very prompt delivery’ good product, feels sold does a good job. Took me a while to realise the extra small collars were spares. Really makes a difference to sore accupuncture spots

"Perfect rehab!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As an amateur endurance athlete , I have never been able to afford proper recovery tools until this massage gun! Having recently suffered from a knee injury, this massage gun has proven to be good quality and useful in my rehabilitation. The value for money in this unit is perfect and anyone who may be doubting that this is for them should reassured that it is. My parents both have used this for ongoing aches and pains, and I use it for active sports recovery. It truly is a “one size fits all” type device. Highly recommend!

"Best buy EVER"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I used to go to the chiropractor every month where she would use tools and guns on my back. Since purchasing this, I haven't had to visit the Chiropractor once!!!! Just need to ensure you have a partner who is willing to shoot you with the massage gun when you need it. Best purchase!!

"Amazing - It is the Best"
5 stars"

This has been the best buy, got it for hubby & I tell ya it is the best thing for muscle recovery after workouts. We both love it. Have told so many people about it so many friends and just about half my office now own one! Love it!!

"Highly recommend!!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this as a gift for my partner, now the whole family uses it! Its just as good as the more expensive massage guns sold by other brands. We've had it for a few months now and it still works perfectly.. It really does relieves tight muscles and pain etc. You can use it yourself, but its good to have someone else to do your back (cant reach lol) I 100% would recommend this, and I have no regrets of buying this. I remember I ordered it late on a Friday and it arrived on the Monday and its packaged very well.

"Too much noise"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It does the job, but super noisey. It feels cheap, and again.. The noise is a big no for me – you have to hold it at a specific angle to stop it from making too much noise but the nosies it’s till there regardless.

"Instructions are useless"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Instructions don't explain what the rubber seals in the package are to be used for. They also don't explain what the second digital reading is for. Additionally, the instructions advise that pressing the power button multiple times puts it into different modes – which it doesn't do. The quality of the massage gun seems OK though.

"Big QOL improvement"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've had years of a pinched nerve and this has helped relieve so much of the pain, I had a other brand massage gun and regret not buying this one first. This massage gun is so quiet, yet so damn effective, no more house mates thinking I'm using an adult toy, haha! I've recently been doing long 12 hour days and I feel so relaxed after using it tonight! I can't wait to see how much more this massage gun improves my life as I work longer and longer!

"It's a gun, that massages"

"Incredible price"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was expecting just a middle of the road massage gun, half as robust as the $300+ ones… What a find!!! This thing is solid and heavy!! Great for the price and I can see it lasting for a long long time. Great battery life per charge, awesome heads and cones in a case.

"I feel like I got a grab-bag of bits of various products"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Instructions in online ad is more instructive than instruction manual and reads like instructions for a similar but differently built product (picture in manual is correct, howevever). Although all listed heads came, several other (arguably misshapen) heads also arrived. Inside of storage box looks nothing like pictures and does not hold things securely. The handle part does not feel secure in its connection to the rest of the machine. Finally, use above the legs and/or above setting 5/20 results in rumbling in ears. Honestly not sure if it IS better than nothing.

"False charging times and run times."
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's OK, novelty ran off after 2 days. Advertising is false as well, as per the manual its 5–6 hours of charge time and 2 hours of use. Not 2 hours charge with 5–6 hours use.

"Average"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The very basic jarring function does little for muscle relief, a little time studying very simple physio recovery type massage techniques will objectively net far better results. Very poor return on investment.

"Great, even compared to the expensive brands"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This thing works amazingly well. Even comparing it to a friends main name brand that was double the price, this out performs it by a mile. I expected this to not last long, or have issues. But nope – it's 11/10.

"Awesome purchase"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This has been an amazing purchase. Comes with a variety of heads and speed options. Charging is easy and the battery life hasn't been an issue so far.

"Doesn't last even with very little use"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this for my partner for Christmas 2022. He used it approximately 10 times then we packed to move house. Today he found it in the unpacked boxes (Feb 9th 2024) and it wont charge and even plugged in it malfunctions. Unfortunately we are just out of the 12 month warranty. I wish I had spent extra to get a branded gun that would last longer than 10 uses and then being safely packed away for 7 months. It has also put me off buying any of the Ape brand.

Nothing much to say really. Though I am worried the amount of pressure I put in the handle may be too much and it'll snap, it does the job quite well.

I initially got this to treat an injured knee – helped to get me back to walking in about a week. I use this massager regularly and I'm so glad I bought it. I've even been able to give myself good physio therapy for new and old injuries. It services the purpose excellently!

Changed the training game immediately with this. Performs awesome and holds charge well. Good power levels and consistency. Come in a handy case, doesn’t take up too much room in a training bag. Same specs for a much better price. Highly recommend!
