Our Verdict

The We-Vibe Tango X is a favorite bullet for good reason – it’s the most rumbly bullet I’ve tried. Its 8 deep intensity levels cover a broad power range, providing a gentle warmup, moderate middle levels, and an intense finish. The exceptional rumbliness and great power range make this an excellent choice for many people.

Its silicone grip is comfortable to hold, and its small size is easy to maneuver. I enjoy it both solo and during partnered sex. And it has better controls than other bullets. Unlike most bullets that make you cycle through intensity levels, the Tango X has 3 separate buttons to increase power, decrease power, and change vibration patterns – so you can quickly find the exact setting you want.

It can be loud when it’s not in contact with your body, but there are easy ways to mask this noise. The only people I don’t recommend the Tango X to are those who prefer buzzy vibrations or extreme intensity. For that, you might try the FemmeFunn Booster BulletIf you’re looking for powerful vibrations with the greatest rumbliness of any bullet vibrator, the We-Vibe Tango X is the best option!

We-Vibe Tango X with other bullet and mini vibrators in background

The We-Vibe Tango X is one of the most famous and well-loved bullet vibrators for its rumbly motor. It’s an upgraded version of the original We-Vibe Tango, which has been discontinued. The Tango X improves on the original in a few ways: it has 8 intensity levels covering the same power range instead of 4. It has a more comfortable silicone grip but maintains the original’s smooth ABS plastic body and lipstick shape. 

The Tango X also has 2 separate buttons to increase and decrease power and another button to cycle through the 6 vibration patterns. In contrast, the original Tango used a single button to cycle through all its settings. The We-Vibe Tango X is waterproof for easy cleaning, has a travel lock to keep it from accidentally turning on, and comes with a silky storage bag. It comes in cherry red or midnight blue colors.

Compare Bullet & Mini Vibrators

You can filter this table by products’ performance and price using our comparison table tool here.

The We-Vibe Tango X is one of the best bullet vibrators available, especially for people who value deep, rumbly vibrations. It’s much more rumbly than other bullet and mini vibrators, including the We-Vibe Touch X. It has excellent performance in every aspect except noise, which is still decent.

The main reason to consider something else is if you don’t prefer very rumbly vibrations. If that’s you, consider the We-Vibe Touch X for moderate rumbliness, the Lovense Ambi for more neutral vibrations, or the FemmeFunn Booster Bullet for buzzy vibrations. Otherwise, the Tango X is outstanding.

Power Range Rating:

8.0

What is it:

How wide the range is between the highest and lowest power levels, and whether it has enough power levels that steps between settings are comfortable.

When does it matter:

A broad power range with many intensity levels is always more versatile. You can warm up with softer levels when your body isn’t ready for intense vibrations. But when you want more strength, you can turn it up high. A broad power range is also more likely to include settings at your ideal strength.

Power vs Frequency Graph:

What is it:

A graph of each bullet and mini vibrator’s power vs frequency across all of its power levels. 

When does it matter:

If you want a detailed look at the vibrator’s full power and frequency characteristics. This tells you how strong and how rumbly each setting feels. You can also compare two vibrators on the same graph using our graph comparison tool here.

How Strong Is Each Power? (Click to Expand Definitions)

  • Power < 2.7: Too weak for me to orgasm, but great while warming up.
  • Power between 2.7 and 6.0: Strong enough for me to orgasm, but takes some effort. Good while warming up.
  • Power between 6.0 and 9.0: I orgasm effortlessly and reliably. These are the settings I typically finish with.
  • Power ≥ 9.0: Extreme power. Way more than I need to orgasm – I rarely use these.

The We-Vibe Tango X has an excellent power range that provides gentle, moderate, and strong power levels. It begins with 2.5 out of 10 vibration strength. The comfortable soft settings are great while warming up or for those overstimulated by intensity. 

The upper power levels are strong, reaching a 7.75 out of 10 strength. I easily orgasm with the Tango X but typically use its top setting. There are some with more extreme power, like the FemmeFunn Booster Bullet or BMS Swan Maximum Bullet, for those who crave immense intensity. But I don’t personally need more strength than the Tango X provides.

We-Vibe Tango X and We-Vibe Tango
The We-Vibe Tango X (left) is the newer and improved version of the original We-Vibe Tango (right) with 8 power levels instead of 4

The Tango X has improved on the original We-Vibe Tango in that it has 8 power levels instead of 4. So, the new model covers its power range more completely with many gradual steps between intensity levels. You can work up to its top power very slowly. Or if you’re easily overstimulated, you have many gentle or moderate power levels to enjoy. 

Most people will enjoy the We-Vibe Tango X’s vibrations. Few bullets have as wide a range of power as this one.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

8.9

What is it:

How “rumbly” (low frequency) or “buzzy” (high frequency) the vibrator feels. And whether it delivers strong vibrations while remaining reasonably rumbly. Higher scores indicate a “more rumbly” (lower-frequency) bullet or mini vibrator, since the majority of people prefer rumbliness. But ultimately vibration frequency is a personal preference.

When does it matter:

If you prefer vibrations in a specific area along the rumbly-to-buzzy spectrum. Rumbly vibrations spread out more and you feel them deeper. Whereas you feel buzzy vibrations nearer to the surface and more concentrated around the point of contact. Both can feel good, and which you enjoy more is a personal preference.

What is it:

What part of the frequency spectrum the vibrator’s power levels are centered around. It’s the vibration frequency of the middle power level (the average of the two middle levels if there is an even number of settings).

When does it matter:

If you prefer vibrations in a particular part of the rumbly-to-buzzy spectrum. This provides a quick way to see whether one vibrator’s settings are generally more rumbly or buzzy than another vibrator’s. Since most people prefer rumbly toys, we give higher scores to lower-frequency (more rumbly) vibrators. But ultimately, it’s a personal preference.

Frequency on High Power:

(Extremely Rumbly)

Rumbliness & Power Balance:

8.5

What is it:

A measure that rewards bullet and mini vibrators that remain rumbly (low-frequency) while packing good vibration strength. In other words, a bullet vibrator that is strong, but buzzy will perform poorly in this metric. Likewise, a bullet vibrator that is rumbly, but weak will also perform poorly. Only bullet and mini vibrators with strong, rumbly vibrations will have a high rating here. Calculated using the average normalized power / normalized frequency of the vibrator’s settings, with a derating factor applied to buzzy settings. 

When does it matter:

If you want a bullet or mini vibrator with a good balance of power and rumbliness.

Show All Scores (Click to See):

The We-Vibe Tango X is the most rumbly bullet vibrator I own. This is one of the main reasons to consider this bullet. 

Its rumbliness is especially impressive considering the Tango X’s strength. Vibrators become buzzier as you increase power. But even its top setting (7.75 out of 10 power) measured at 58 Hz in our test results, which is extremely rumbly. No other bullet besides the Tango X and Tango had more than 5.0 vibration strength while remaining under 60 Hz (our threshold for the “extremely rumbly” range).

Now, rumbliness vs buzziness is a personal preference. Although most people prefer rumbly vibrations, some want neutral or even buzzy vibes. If that’s you, consider the Pillow Talk Racy if you like neutral vibrations or the Lovense Ambi for moderately buzzy vibrations.

The We-Vibe Tango X is the best if you’re like most people and want those deep-feeling, rumbly vibrations. If you enjoy larger toys with more extreme power, you could also consider the Fun Factory Vim – my best rumbly wand vibrator.

Stimulation Precision


Stimulation Precision

What is it:

How focused or broad the stimulation feels compared to other mini and bullet vibrators.

When does it matter:

If you prefer stimulation focused in a small, precise area or enjoy it spread out over more of your vulva. It’s a personal preference.

We-Vibe Tango X Typical Tip Width Photo

Precision:

Precise

Head or Tip Width:

0.69 inches

What is it:

The width of the vibrator’s head or tip measured at the part of the vibrator in contact with my body during normal use. For most bullet vibrators, it’s the width of the toy right before it begins to taper. For uniquely-shaped mini vibrators it’s a subjective location I determine based on my experience using the vibrator.

When does it matter:

If you enjoy broader stimulation you’ll will want a greater tip width. If you prefer precise stimulation, you’ll want a narrower tip width. 

Tip Shape:

Lipstick

What is it:

The shape of the bullet or mini vibrator’s tip.

When it matters:

The tip’s shape affects how broad or precise the stimulation feels. And it affects how much you can vary the stimulation. Lipstick-shaped and tapered vibrators provide very focused stimulation when using the tip or moderate precision when using the side of the toy. Rounded heads stay in that moderate range of precision. And others can be broader.

The We-Vibe Tango X provides focused stimulation due to its thin width (0.69 inches) and lipstick-shaped tip. The lipstick tip comes to a fine edge that you can use to target the vibrations into an exact area. 

Rumbly vibrations travel deep into the body and feel like they naturally impact a more significant area, so limiting the contact to a particular spot is nice.

Examples of other precision amounts on bullets and mini-vibrators

If you want slightly broader stimulation, you can use the long side of the Tango X to spread out the contact area more.

The We-Vibe Tango X is an exceptionally comfortable and easy-to-use bullet. 

It has better controls than other bullet vibrators. Unlike most bullets, which offer a single button to cycle through all the intensity levels and patterns, the Tango X has separate buttons to increase and decrease power; and a third button to move through its vibration patterns.

The We-Vibe Tango X is awesome during sex! The rumbly vibrations travel deep into your body, so you don’t have to worry about placing the bullet in a precise spot. The thin, focused tip lets you easily slip the Tango X into tight spaces, and it maintains good contact wherever you place it.

I like that the Tango X is a bit longer than the original Tango because it makes for a more comfortable grip. You don’t need to pinch the end with your fingers; the handle has more space to sit comfortably in your hand so you can leverage the Tango X more easily.

This length also helps to limit how far you have to reach during sex. But it’s not so long that it bumps against my partner’s chest or gets in the way.
