In this review, let me share ALL my favorable & unfavorable experiences with the We-Vibe wand. Is this the cordless wand for you? Read on, and let’s find out!

we vibe wand review

Many people ask me why I like We-Vibe products so much.

My answer is simple—they’re well made, and I’ve never been disappointed with how they work. That’s why when I heard they were releasing their first-ever wand vibrator, the We-Vibe Wand, I got thrilled and immediately ordered one.

As soon as I received the We-Vibe Wand, I started experimenting with it to see how it felt and whether it could stimulate me in the right places.

In this review, I share my positive and negative experiences with this toy to help you decide whether or not to buy this weapon of pleasure.

The Good

The We-Vibe Wand’s vibrations are incredibly deep and intense, making them perfect for clitoral stimulation. Unlike most vibrating wands, it is 100% waterproof so you can take it into the shower or bath without worries. Aside from connecting it to the We-Connect app for different functions, it has a unique Smart Silence technology to automatically switch its vibrations off when it’s not in use.

The Not So Good

We-Vibe Wand is a full-sized massager, so expect it to be a little heavier and longer. While it came with two attachments, I found them challenging to put on and take off. Lastly, its battery life isn’t as long-lasting as its other competitors, but I think it’s still more than enough for most people.

The Bottom Line

I’d recommend the We-Vibe Wand to anyone who wants a powerful and reliable massager that will last for years. It’s easy to use, is convenient, and has extremely strong yet pleasurable vibrations. However, you might want to look elsewhere if you want something discreet and easy to carry around.

We-Vibe Wand is FOR YOU if:

  • You prefer strong and rumbly vibrations.
  • You enjoy the feeling of being in control.
  • You’re looking for a waterproof massager.
  • You like to experiment with different types of attachments.

We-Vibe Wand is NOT FOR YOU if:

  • You prefer a compact and lightweight massager.
  • You prefer moderate vibrations.
  • You prefer a toy with a smaller head for targeted vibrations.

Unboxing We-Vibe Wand

The packaging of your We-Vibe Wand looks exactly like the packaging of other We-Vibe products. The only difference is the size of the box, which is significantly bigger (obviously). 

When I opened the box, I found the purple-colored We-Vibe Wand positioned sideways, allowing me to appreciate its shape and look.

The following items were included in the package:

  • Wand by We-Vibe
  • Magnetic USB cable
  • Male/Female attachments
  • Quick-start user guide

We-Vibe Wand Design: How It Looks and Feels

The first thing that I did when I got my We-Vibe Wand was to squish its head between my index finger and thumb to feel it. It’s super soft and flexible.

It has a wave segment engraved in the middle of the head to ensure that its attachments won’t fall off during use.

After that, I touched and gripped its handle with my hand, which was really smooth. The upper portion of the handle features thin lines designed to give the user a more comfortable grip. The toy’s three control buttons are at the lower part of the handle.

The head is attached to the slightly curved handle by a semi-flexible neck, allowing you to bend it in any direction you want. 

Overall, this wand is longer and a bit heavier than some massagers I’ve tried, like the Lovense Domi 2 and VeDO Wanda.


Key Functionalities of We-Vibe Wand

Joystick-Inspired Controls

One of the best parts of this Wand is its intuitive and easy-to-use joystick-inspired intensity control button.

You don’t have to worry about losing your momentum because this controller allows you to seamlessly adjust the intensity of the vibrations simply by pushing it UP or DOWN.

You’ll notice that the silicone casing tugs a little when using it. Don’t worry.

The material is soft and flexible enough to withstand tension so that you won’t have any problems with it.


Vibration

Now, it’s time for the vibrrrrrrrrrations. The Wand is equipped with a powerful motor that produces deep and rumbly vibrations transmitted through the toy’s head or attachment to your pleasure spots. This wand has 10 built-in vibration levels and patterns that can be adjusted via a control button located between the intensity control and power buttons.

When you turn on the wand, you can cycle through the following modes:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High
  • Pulse
  • Wave
  • Tease
  • Ultra
  • Massage
  • Tempo
  • Ramp

We-Connect Compatibility

The Wand is equipped with a built-in Bluetooth chip that allows you to pair the toy with your smartphone through the We-Connect app. Once paired, the app lets you adjust the wand’s vibration settings remotely and control it in unlimited ways.

For instance, the app lets you select a vibration pattern from a list of preset options. But most importantly, it lets you customize your sexual experience by offering you an opportunity to combine and modify vibration patterns, intensities, and speeds based on your preference. 

We-Connect can also be used by long-distance couples who wish to reconnect virtually through their smartphones and We-Vibe sex toys and share the same stimulations simultaneously.


Smart Silence™ Technology

The Wand comes with an innovative sensor technology called Smart Silence™, which can automatically shut off the vibrating motor when the device is not being used. On the other hand, it switches on the vibration motor when it senses that the Wand is close to your skin.

This function allows you to extend the toy’s battery life and prevents the device from producing any unnecessary noise when not in use.


Cordless

Unlike some full-sized massagers such as the Hitachi Magic Wand Original, the Wand doesn’t need to be plugged into a wall outlet to function. In other words, you don’t have to worry about accidentally unplugging the toy in the middle of your orgasm or getting entangled in annoying wires. Who likes wired sex toys nowadays, anyway?


Waterproof

The Wand is 100% waterproof, so you can use it even while bathing or taking a shower. Unlike most vibrating massagers such as the Hitachi Magic Wand and the Lovense Domi 2.

This means that you don’t have to worry about damaging the device by accidentally dropping it in the bathtub. This feature also makes it a lot easier to clean.


Noise Level

The Wand produces a sound level of 42-54 decibels, which is considered to be a moderate level of noise. I think this is justifiable because it’s a full-sized massager that produces powerful rumbly vibrations.

However, I think the Wand’s noise is relatively more tolerable than its competitors from the same category like the Doxy Die Cast (44-61 dB) and Magic Wand Plus (43-63 dB).


Fluttery & Stroke Attachments

The Wand comes with two different attachments that can be used to enhance stimulations during solo play or partnered sex. 

First, the fluttery attachment is designed to stimulate your clit and vulva through tongue-like sensations. The vibrating motor causes the attachment to make light flapping movements that provide a soft, tickling sensation that can be very pleasurable.

Secondly, the stroke attachment provides vibrating and stroking stimulation to your partner’s penis shaft. When my partner tried this attachment, he had to apply some water-based lube to the surface of his penis and the toy to ensure it would glide smoothly.


How to Use We-Vibe Wand

We-Vibe Wand comes with a user manual with a very detailed explanation of how to set up and use the toy. Here are some instructions you can follow:

Using We-Vibe Wand Manually

  • Turn on your We-Vibe Wand by pressing the power button for 2 seconds.
  • Push the intensity control button upwards or downwards to increase or decrease the intensity.
  • Press the pattern mode button to change vibration modes.
  • Apply water-based lube to the toy’s head.
  • (Optional) Attach an attachment to your Wand.

Pro Tip

Press the pattern mode button for 5 seconds to switch off the Smart Silence feature.


Using We-Vibe Wand with We-Connect App

  • Press the power button on the toy for 5 seconds. 
  • Open your Bluetooth and the We-Connect app.
  • Select the “Connect Toy” option to detect the Wand.
  • Adjust or customize vibration patterns and intensities using the app.

Charging the We-Vibe Wand

  • Connect the magnetic USB charging cord to the We-Vibe Wand.
  • Plug it into a wall outlet or connect it to a computer.
  • Wait for 90 minutes to fully charge your toy.

Pro Tip

Charge your We-Vibe Wand before vibrations weaken to prolong its battery life and ensure the best performance.


My Experience with the We-Vibe Wand

First and foremost, I found this toy very powerful. Its vibrations are so intense and deep that they can feel like they’re penetrating your insides.

When I pressed it on my clit and vulva at the highest settings for the first time, the vibes were so intense that I almost climaxed after a few minutes. Yup, that’s how powerful the We-Vibe Wand is.

I’ve also tried using it as a back massager, and I found it to be pretty good for that purpose too. However, I found its vibrating motor to be quite noisy, but not as loud as those of its competitors as discussed above.

I also like its joystick-like intensity control button is protruded because it makes it easier to locate and control the vibrations manually.

Its unique Smart Silence technology is also very convenient. I love that it prevents my Wand from making any sound while it’s not yet being used or if I decide to take a quick break.

I actually liked the We-Vibe Wand as it is without connecting it to the We-Connect app.

One thing that I don’t like is that it’s a bit too heavy for me. Sometimes, when my arms are too tired, I just have to hold the wand in place and let it do its job.

It’s not as comfortable as I would want, but it works.

I’ve also tested the free We-Vibe Wand attachments on my own and on my partner’s penis, and they just didn’t work for us in terms of what we wanted to get from the toy. Or maybe we were just expecting a lot.

Nonetheless, they add something different to your couple’s play experience, albeit not being as realistic as most toys out there.


How to Clean We-Vibe Wand

You can wash the Wand with warm water and mild soap. I do not recommend cleaning it with products that contain alcohol, petrol, or acetone as these might damage the toy’s material.


Price, Where To Buy

The We-Vibe Wand currently retails for $179.99 if you buy it from Lovehoney.


What Do Other People Think About We-Vibe Wand?

The vibration quality is what truly sets it apart. It’s the rumbliest wand that I know of, with a low, deep purr that’s very penetrating. Feels very refined.

I have one, and it does what I need it to. It’s strong, quiet for its power, has decent battery life, and is fully waterproof. The attachment for penile stimulation works well enough.


Alternatives

We-Vibe Wand vs. BMS PalmPower Extreme

The BMS PalmPower Extreme is just as powerful as the We-Vibe Wand, but it has a slightly smaller head and handle and a sleeker design. They’re both rechargeable and cordless too.

If you’re looking for a quieter toy, go for BMS PalmPower because its noise level is lower at 38-53 dB. However, bear in mind that this toy isn’t waterproof, so you need to be extra careful when cleaning it.


We-Vibe Wand vs. Magic Wand Rechargeable 

Magic Wand Rechargeable

We-Vibe Wand is way superior to the Magic Wand Rechargeable because it’s smaller, lighter, and more convenient to use. The vibrations emitted by Magic Wand Rechargeable aren’t refined and could be too much for most people when set at high intensities. Like the previous competitor, it also isn’t waterproof. 

On the other hand, its major advantage is having a slightly larger head which is perfect if you’re looking for broader stimulation.

We-Vibe Wand vs. Doxy Die Cast

Doxy Die Cast

Among the three competitors that I’ve compared, Doxy Die Cast is the only massager with a more powerful vibrating motor than the We-Vibe Wand. Its vibrations are also refined and provide extremely pleasurable sensations even at higher intensities.

Like the Magic Wand Rechargeable, the Doxy Die Cast has a bigger head that emits broader vibrations. However, it isn’t rechargeable and only works while plugged in. It also isn’t waterproof.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I think the We-Vibe Wand is an excellent weapon of pleasure. In my opinion, what makes it truly exceptional is its unique Smart Silence technology combined with its powerful motor, ergonomic design, and app connectivity.
