Our Verdict

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand is the best mini wand around $50 if you like the broad stimulation and immense power of full-sized wand vibrators. This budget-friendly mini wand has great power and good rumbliness. 

It’s short, which makes it easy to maneuver. But it has a full-sized head, providing the powerful, broad stimulation large wand vibrators are famous for. It’s significantly stronger than other wands this compact and inexpensive. I also find its first power level soft enough for a comfortable warmup.

It has easy-to-use controls that allow you to increase and decrease power using separate buttons rather than cycling through settings. I find it a bit difficult to use this wand during sex in face-to-face positions, but it works great in positions like Spooning or Doggystyle. And since its head is full-sized, it’s compatible with many wand attachments and mounts – so it’s quite versatile.

Table of Contents

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand Massager is a budget-friendly wand vibrator from Orion. It has a compact length but a full-sized head with 3 constant power levels and 4 vibration patterns. It’s made of body-safe materials with a silicone head and ABS Plastic handle. It’s IPX6 water-resistant, so you can run it under the faucet while cleaning. It’s rechargeable and uses a USB magnetic charging cable.

Compare Wand Vibrators​

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand is the best wand in its price range if you like a full-sized wand’s strong, broad stimulation. It’s the most powerful wand around $50 and the most similar to expensive full-sized wands like the Magic Wand Rechargeable, Magic Wand Plus, or BMS PalmPower Extreme. Some pricier mini wand vibrators have even more strength (like the Lovense Domi 2) or better comfort (like the Magic Wand Mini). But the Orion wand is an excellent value.

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 levels aren’t too large.

When does it matter:

A broad power range is usually important because it enables more versatile stimulation. You can start on softer levels when your body isn’t ready for crazy strong power. But when you want more strength, you can turn it up high.

Power vs Frequency Graph:

What is it:

A graph of each wand vibrator’s power vs frequency across all of its power levels. 

When does it matter:

If you want a detailed look at the full power and frequency characteristics of any particular wand vibrator. This will tell you how strong and how rumbly each setting of the wand feels.

How Strong Is Each Power?

  • Power ≤ 3: Comparable to the vibration strength of smaller vibrators like bullets.
  • Power between 3 and 4.5: Comparable to … 

(Expand Descriptions)

  • Power ≤ 3: Comparable to the vibration strength of smaller vibrators like bullets.
  • Power between 3 and 4.5: Comparable to the vibration strength of mid-sized, non-wand vibrators like the Lelo Mona 2, Lovense Hyphy, Lovense Lush 3, We-Vibe Nova 2, etc.
  • Power between 4.5 and 7: Slightly to moderately more powerful than mid-sized, non-wand vibrators like those mentioned above. 
  • Power ≥ 7: Substantially stronger than other kinds of vibrators. These levels feel extremely powerful.

The Vibration Power scale is defined with a 10.0 given to the most powerful wand vibrator’s highest strength (Currently the Doxy Die Cast). So a vibration power of 8.0 feels 80% as strong as the Doxy Die Cast. A 5.0 feels 50% as strong, and so on.

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand has excellent strength and a nice range, spanning low, medium, and high powers. I’m impressed with the vibration settings for how budget-friendly this wand is.

There are only 3 intensity levels, but the highest reaches a 6.7 out of 10, which is significantly stronger than my non-wand vibrators. While there are more powerful premium wands like the PalmPower Extreme or Magic Wand Plus, the Orion Your New Favorite Wand is the strongest wand I’ve tested that’s under $50. And even with its compact size, its strength is comparable to many full-sized wands.

The lowest setting is a 1.8 out of 10, which I find comfortable as a warmup. But since this setting is quite rumbly, it still impacts your whole vulva. So if you get overstimulated easily, you might consider the VeDO Wini, which begins gentler and has smaller increments between power levels.

But the Orion Your New Favorite Wand is the most budget-friendly option for those who want a more traditional wand’s strength.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

7.6

What is it:

How “rumbly” (low frequency) or “buzzy” (high frequency) a wand vibrator feels at each of its power levels. And whether a wand can deliver strong vibrations while remaining reasonably rumbly. Higher scores indicate a “more rumbly” (lower-frequency) wand, 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.

When does it matter:

If you prefer vibrations in a particular part of the frequency spectrum. This is a fast way to see whether one wand’s vibration levels are generally more rumbly or buzzy than another wand’s vibration settings. Since most people prefer rumbly toys, a higher performance score implies a lower-frequency (more rumbly) wand.

Ave Power Per Frequency:

What is it:

A measure that rewards wand vibrators that remain rumbly (low-frequency) while packing good vibration strength. Calculated for a wand using the normalized power / normalized frequency at each power level and taking the median.

When does it matter:

If you want a wand with a good balance of power and rumbliness.

Show All Scores (Click to See):

We rate rumbly wands higher than buzzy ones because it’s what most people prefer. The Orion Your New Favorite Wand has good rumbliness. The first two power levels have that deep, rumbly feeling, but the top strength feels more neutral.

The middle setting, with a 5.25 out of 10 vibration strength, provides a powerful, rumbly level to enjoy. And the lowest setting provides a gentle, rumbly warmup. It’s the most rumbly wand vibrator at this price point. 

If you want all the power settings to be rumbly, the Satisfyer Wand-er Woman is the next most affordable option. Unfortunately, most wands with exceptional rumbliness, like the Fun Factory Vim, come at a higher price.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

8.5

What is it:

How comfortable the wand is to hold and press against your body. As well as how easy it is to press the buttons, leverage the wand for good pressure, and maneuver it to apply the stimulation where and how you want it. This rating also includes how easy the wand is to clean. Ratings are based primarily on solo use – I cover use during partnered sex here.

When does it matter:

If you are easily distracted by subtle discomforts such as feeling the vibrations in your hands, slight wrist strain, or an awkward grip on the handle. It also matters if you want a wand that’s easy to use for a wide variety of stimulation or for long periods of time.

These wands have excellent performance in this category and others. We only include wands we recommend overall, excluding wands that perform well here but not in other areas.

Waterproof Rating:

IPX6

What is it:

The waterproof rating of the wand vibrator – IPX7, IPX6, or No Rating

When does it matter:

When you plan to use your wand vibrator in the shower or want simpler cleaning.

  • IPX7 (Submersible): Wands with this rating are considered “waterproof.” You can submerge them in water up to a meter deep for up to 30 minutes. So you can use them in the bath and cleaning is easy.
  • IPX6 (Splashproof): Wands with this rating can resist high-pressure, heavy sprays of water, but should not be fully submerged. This means you can use them in the shower (but not submerged in a bath). You can also clean them under a sink faucet without worry.
  • No Rating: These wands do not have a waterproof rating. You should not use them in the shower, and you must be careful to keep water away from electronic components when cleaning them .

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand is very comfortable and easy to use. 

It has excellent, simple controls. It has separate buttons to increase and decrease power, so you don’t need to cycle through intensity levels to return to a gentler setting. It has a third button to rotate through the 4 vibration patterns. And you can adjust the strength of each vibration pattern. Multi-button wands like the Orion wand make it quick and easy to find an enjoyable setting.

Although the handle is short, the head is large, like a full-sized wand. It’s great for those who find broad stimulation that spreads over your whole vulva comfortable and enjoyable. I find direct clitoral stimulation more comfortable with broad wands like Your New Favorite Wand because the stimulation spreads out and feels less overwhelming to me. 

The large head means you can’t easily limit the contact or avoid particular areas. But the flexible neck helps to keep the contact comfortable.

Orion Your New Favorite Wand Large Head and Small Handle vs Magic Wand Rechargeable
The Orion Your New Favorite Wand (left) has a large head comparable to a full-sized wand like the Magic Wand Rechargeable (right), but a much shorter handle

The short handle can be tiring to leverage for firm pressure over long periods but is fine for typical sessions. And the handle is thicker than other mini wands, which I find comfortable to grip. The thicker handle does an excellent job of dampening the vibrations, so you don’t feel them much in your hand.

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand is passable during sex, but mini wands with a smaller head (like the comparably-priced VeDO Wini) are easier to use with a partner. The Orion Your New Favorite Wand works well in open positions but is only decent in positions facing your partner.

The Orion’s large head works best in a spooning position or doggystyle, where the space between you and your partner is not limited. In fairly open positions like these, you can position the Orion wand’s large head close to your clit, and its powerful vibes spread throughout your whole vulva. And in these positions, you can easily angle the Orion’s short handle however you want.

Face-to-face positions like missionary or cowgirl are more challenging. It’s doable, but you may need to be intentional with your body position. In these positions, space is limited. And since the Orion’s handle is short, both your hand and the wand’s large head take up space. It’s more difficult than a short wand with a small head or a long wand with a large head. It gets crowded, and angling the wand where you want takes more thought.  

VeDO Wini vs Orion Your New Favorite Wand During Sex
The Orion Your New Favorite Wand (yellow) takes up more space than the VeDO Wini (teal) in positions when you’re facing your partner

If using a wand with a partner in a variety of positions is your main priority, I recommend the VeDO Wini in this price range. If you prefer positions from behind or using your wand during sex is just a bonus for you, then the Orion is still a great option.

My partner could hear the top two levels from behind our bedroom door during our testing. Only the lowest setting was completely inaudible in our silent house. 

If you have roommates, the VeDO Wini is a quieter option in this price range. Or some premium wands like the Magic Wand Rechargeable and Fun Factory Vim have more strength while remaining quieter.

However, you can freely use the Orion Your New Favorite Wand’s entire power range if you turn on a box fan or play music in your bedroom. Both these options completely masked the Orion wand’s sound in our testing.

The Orion Your New Favorite Wand has excellent compatibility with wand mounts for hands-free play. I test my wands with my Liberator Axis and Wanda mounts.

The Liberator Axis allows you to lay over the mount on your stomach while the wand is held slightly upward between your legs. This is my preferred mount for hands-free stimulation during sex.

The Orion’s thick, short handle securely fits in the mount’s slot. And Your New Favorite Wand Massager’s head is actually wider than most full-sized wands. This extra girth helps it reach my clit more easily and provides more consistent pressure and contact with my clit than a narrow head. The stimulation is excellent!

The Orion also works great in the Liberator Wanda. You can straddle the Wanda in a doggystyle position for hands-free vibrations and penetration from behind with a partner. Or you can simply sit on the mount and enjoy easy hands-free stimulation. The Orion wand’s head rests just above the fabric so you can lower your body onto it (unlike tall wands). It’s very versatile!
