The MysteryVibe Crescendo is a versatile and high-quality toy the bends just the way you want it to.

It comes with a sleek and accessible app and offers a wide variety of vibration patterns and shapes. It’s perfect for anyone yearning for full control over the stimulation they get.

The Good

It can bend in a variety of different shapes and comes in a beginner-friendly size. Many people will be able to insert it without a lot of warm-up. The app is easy to use and offers a lot of control over the type of stimulation you get. The vibrations are perfect if you prefer medium-range stimulation or find intense toys too numbing. Its bendiness means that you can also combine it with partnered sex.

The Not So Good

This toy won’t get you off as fast as more powerful alternatives and it may be too small if you like thicker toys. Depending on your anatomy, it may fail to stimulate your clit and g-spot at the same time.

The Bottom Line

Crescendo is a good choice for those of us who aren’t sure what they like or who want to experiment. It will also be a great toy for beginners thanks to its manageable size. Any sex nerds out there will get a kick out of using Crescendo with its app.

It’s worth a try if you:

  • Enjoy having maximum control over your vibrator and like playing around with apps;
  • Prefer gentle to medium vibrations
  • Struggle with girthier toys or want to use this toy with PIV sex
  • Are only beginning to explore toys and aren’t sure what kinds of stimulation and positions you prefer. 
  • Suffer from pelvic floor issues and want a toy for a more controlled internal massage

For whom is it NOT?

  • Someone who wants a toy with strong vibrations
  • Those who don’t like figuring their way around toys with lots of functionalities
  • Someone on a strict budget
  • Lovers of girthier toys

What Is The MysteryVibe Crescendo?

A few years ago, MysteryVibe Crescendo had set the sexual wellness scene abuzz. Its main selling points were its bendiness and six separate motors buzzing along its length. A true Swiss Army knife of a sex toy!

On top of all that, it also came with a dedicated vibration pattern app. And let’s face it, it’s also a beautifully designed and well-made toy.

Thanks to all this, Crescendo offers something few other toys do: a fully-customizable experience. And its appearance not only made waves but also set a new standard in the sexual wellness industry.

All these features were also what initially drew me to this toy. Was it about to replace half my vibrator collection?

Needless to say, when the opportunity to review it presented itself, I just couldn’t pass it up!

Here’s the video to see how it looks and feels like:

Crescendo: First Impressions

As can be expected of MysteryVibe, the Crescendo vibrator arrived in discreet packaging. Once I removed it, the first thing I saw was of course the box.

And boy, it instantly made me feel like I was about to be pampered.

Sleek, black, and sturdy with golden lettering, it had an air of luxury to it.

The inside was no different and contained:

  • the vibe itself
  • a wireless USB charger
  • the user manual
  • position cards
  • and a beautiful black pouch with a satin finish.

The pouch alone deserves a separate mention. It comes with space not just for the toy itself but also with pockets for any extra accessories (such as its charger, lube or smaller toys).

I really appreciated this touch, as it offered a handy, stylish and discreet way to store and travel with my toy(s). A welcome alternative to haphazardly pushing them between folded clothes when travelling!

Mysteryvibe Crescendo Tech And Specs Overview

Let’s Talk About Measurements

The MysteryVibe Crescendo measures 8.5”, of which 6” is insertable, and weighs only 0.35lbs (160g).

It’s also slim, sporting a girth of 3.5”, increasing slightly along its length.

I really appreciate this more inclusive design choice.
For many, the Crescendo won’t even require warm-up and allows one to skip straight to the main event.

What It’s Made Of

The Crescendo is SO lovely to the touch!

It’s made out of a matte body-safe silicone that gives it its’ silky smooth texture.

It’s also 100% water-proof and, according to MysteryVibe, you can submerge it in water. A big perk for anyone looking to spice up shower time!

Crescendo’s Design & Features

One of Crescendo’s core selling points is that it can be bent in many different shapes. That way, you can fit it to your anatomy and preferences. and get the best stimulation.

Past the insertable length, you’ll also find “wings” that stimulate the clitoris while the shaft does its deeds inside of you.

Near the “clit wings”, Crescendo has four buttons (two on each side) that allow you to adjust patterns and intensity. And trust me, there’s a lot to play around with in there!

Each of the Crescendo’s 8 pleasure patterns can be set to a whopping 16 different intensities. 

When Crescendo is connected to the app via bluetooth, you can actually choose a different TYPE of vibration for every section!

What does this mean in practice? If you have areas that are more sensitive, you can lower the intensity there while maintaining (or upping) it elsewhere.

How cool is that?

The app also gives the option to live-control the power of the vibes and play around with completely different vibration programs.

To do this you select one of the preset patterns, download new ones from the library or – if you like playing around with apps – design your own!

How to Use the Crescendo

The Crescendo works similarly to several sex toys in the market. They have a straightforward mechanic that almost every similar product has as its standard. 

To turn the Crescendo on, press any of the buttons.

Then, you can use the + and – buttons to increase and decrease the strength. And if you want to cycle through the vibration patterns, you can use the up and down buttons.

To turn the toy off, hold the up and down buttons for two seconds. If you want to lock in on a specific pattern and strength level, press the + and – buttons simultaneously for three seconds.

In Use: How Does It Feel?

When I picked it up, the vibe felt light, slim and fit comfortably in my hand. For reference, the Crescendo is slimmer than the average erect penis (its gith is comparable to two fingers).

It’s perfect if you struggle with insertion and feel discomfort with thicker toys.

And for those of us who like it bigger, it’s a great option for penis-in-vagina sex, stimulating everyone involved.

For a solo session I personally felt it could be a bit girthier. But I appreciated the ease with which I could get started, if you catch my drift ;).

The first thing I tried out was the toy’s bendiness and, as promised, it could bend into a variety of exciting shapes. It also gave enough resistance to actually stay in whatever shape I chose.

It took me some experimentation, but I was able to bend it in a way that stimulated my g-spot just right. In my case, I was not able to achieve simultaneous clitoral and g-spot stimulation. My anatomy just didn’t fit it that way.

Next came the fun part – testing the toy out in action.

When it comes to the vibrations, the MysteryVibe Crescendo is built for longer sessions rather than sprints.

Depending on the setting, the vibrations go from delicate up to middle-intensity.

Personally, I’m a big fan of medium-intensity vibrations! I find toys such as the WeVibe Tango numbing. (Brrrrrrrr!)

I was relieved to have a change of pace, so to speak. If you, however, need intense, rumbly stimulation to get off, this is something to consider.

In terms of noise, even at its highest setting, the Crescendo vibe is ABSOLUTELY DISCREET. You can use it in the comfort of your room without risking anyone overhearing what you’re up to. 

The buttons were slightly too small to switch things up in the middle of all the action.

I suggest you connect Crescendo with the app in advance, though. You might need to wait for Crescendo to update the software.

After the first update, connecting the two is SUPER SIMPLE.

And thus I dived straight into the app, exploring all its possibilities.

The core feature of the app is of course the ability to take advantage of the multiple motors. In it, you can create a personalized vibration pattern that suits your preferences.

This app also comes with prebuilt patterns and the ability to download more via the app library.

The wireless charger that came with the toy looked very sleek and fun and did its job. Make sure you set it aside to charge in peace. There is nothing that keeps the toy and the charger together so any accidental push might stop the charging.

How Easy Is It To Clean And Store?

Crescendo is fully covered in silicone. This non-porous material makes it super easy to clean. All you need to do is wash it with warm water and soap after use.

Since the toy is 100% waterproof, you don’t even need to worry about submerging it.

I was also under the impression that it wasn’t quite the lint magnet that some of my other silicone toys are, which was a nice change.

Price And Retailers

The MysteryVibe Crescendo vibrator comes in two colors: teal and plum purple.

It retails at anything between $150 and $200. You can buy it on the official MysteryVibes website (it’s on sale now!) or here.

Crescendo Alternatives

If you enjoy having both clitoral and g-spot stimulation, you can try the We-Vibe Nova 2 vibrator. It also has an app and provides stronger stimulation.

If you’re seeking intense g-spot stimulation, on the other hand, give this 100% stainless steel Njoy Pure Wand a shot.

Final Thoughts

Overall, this toy is a lot of fun if you enjoy experimentation or want to figure out what you like without buying several different toys. It can take on many shapes, intensities and vibration types – all in one vibe.

And it’s a real game-changer for anyone who needs the level of control this toy offers for medical reasons. It’s no coincidence that the official website includes testimonies from doctors and patients!

In short: if you dream of a perfectly tailored vibration program then this toy will be your Holy Grail.
