Our Verdict

The VeDO Wanda is a mid-priced wand vibrator that performs decently in most categories. It’s one of the quieter wands. Plus, it’s easy to hold and maneuver or use with a mount for hands-free play. 

But I find it difficult to leverage the VeDO Wanda for firm pressure. And its vibrations are mediocre – neither particularly strong nor especially rumbly. I think other wand vibrators in the same price range provide a better experience – jump here to compare.

The VeDO Wanda is decent, but it underperforms for the price. The Dame Com, Magic Wand Mini, and Magic Wand Plus are similarly priced and each offers better vibrations. For those who prefer more moderate power, the Dame Com or Magic Wand Mini are better options. If you enjoy the extreme vibration strength some wands offer, the Magic Wand Plus is a better choice. If you don’t mind a little less rumbliness, the VeDO Wini is similar to the Wanda, but it’s a cheaper wand and a better value.

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 VeDO Wanda has three power levels which cover a decent range from low to moderate power.

The top power is a smidge stronger than my favorite non-wand vibrators (bullets, G-spot vibrators, rabbit vibrators). I can easily orgasm with the Wanda pressed to my clit. So if you enjoy the more moderate vibration strength of other types of vibrators, but prefer the way broad wands spread the vibrations out – the Wanda will likely do the trick for you. 

VeDO Wanda Compared to Lower Powered Toys
The VeDO Wanda (far right) is slightly stronger than some of my favorite non-wands – (left to right: We-Vibe Tango X, Lelo Mona 2, We-Vibe Nova 2)

But there are cheaper wand vibrators with a similar power range like the Maia Zoe Dual-Ended Wand. And other comparably priced wands like the Magic Wand Mini and Dame Com have a similar power range with better performance in other areas.

And if you’re looking for exceptional power, the Magic Wand Plus will be a better fit in the same price range.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

6.8

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.

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:

5.9

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):

Because most people prefer low-frequency, rumbly vibrations, I rate more rumbly wand vibrators higher than buzzy wands in this performance metric. However, vibration frequency is a personal preference. And some people enjoy vibrations more toward the middle or the buzzy (high-frequency) side of the spectrum. 

So consider what you enjoy!

The VeDO Wanda’s vibrations range from extremely rumbly on low power, to neutral on high power. But because the first power level is fairly soft, you’ll likely use the top two power levels most often.

As a result, you can expect the VeDO Wanda to feel moderately rumbly to neutral most of the time. So it’s best if you enjoy vibrations more toward the middle of the spectrum. If you’re not sure what you enjoy it can also be good since it’s not too far to one side.

Lovense Domi vs VeDO Wanda vs Magic Wand Plus - Vibration Power vs Frequency Graph

Or consider something like the Magic Wand Plus which spans a broad range from extremely rumbly to moderately buzzy with ample power at each level.

If you’re in the majority and prefer mostly rumbly vibrations, you may want to invest the extra $10-$20 for the Lovense Domi. With a compact size like the Wanda, it has a much greater power range, and 90% of its power levels are extremely rumbly.

Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

7.7

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:

IPX7

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 VeDO Wanda is fairly easy to use. The handle has a comfortably smooth, but grippy silicone which means it doesn’t slip around. The wand is fairly compact, so it’s easier to maneuver and adjust the Wanda’s position than it is with full-sized wands.

Plus it’s waterproof, which makes it very easy to clean. And you can take it into the tub with you.

But the VeDO Wanda has its downsides. 

While a firm head is not always uncomfortable, I do think the VeDO Wanda would benefit from some squishiness. The Wanda’s pressure against my body gets a little uncomfortable over time.

VeDO Wand Head Plushness

And I don’t enjoy the tapered shape of the VeDO Wanda’s head. Though in theory, it could help you get more pinpoint precision, I found the taper made it difficult to press the vibes into my body. I prefer the more cylindrical shape and slightly squishy texture of wands like the Magic Wand Mini and Magic Wand Plus.

Scoring Factors:

Show All Scores (Click to See):

The Wanda works okay but not great during sex. 

Its best performance is in the cowgirl position because the tapered head can slide into the right spots without getting in the way. And the smaller handle is easy to move around.

My main complaint that prevents it from scoring higher in all positions is that the head is a little too hard. Which can be fine for some wands. But the Wanda’s neck also has only a slight flex to it. So the combination of a stiff neck and hard head make it bump uncomfortably against my body with a lot of movement during sex.

While the tapered head helps the Wanda in Cowgirl, it actually hurts the score in Missionary. In order to get good clitoral contact from the tapered head, you have to angle the handle upward. And in Missionary, there is not enough room to do this.

VeDO Wanda Restriction During Sex
The tapered head of the VeDO Wanda requires angling the handle out, which does not allow room for a partner to face you

If your main goal is to find a good wand to use during sex, here are a few better recommendations:

  • Lovense Domi 2 – A medium-sized handle with a smaller head that can get into tight places and apply firm pressure. 
  • BMS PalmPower Extreme – A larger wand that still works incredibly well during sex due to the way its head is angled from the handle.
  • Blush Noje W4 – A cheaper option that’s a little smaller than the Wanda with comparable strength. It has some downsides compared to the other two wands above, but it’s inexpensive and easy to use during sex!

The Wanda has an excellent, discreet sound level – good news if you live with others or noise distracts you.

Both its low and high powers are quiet. And during our testing, my partner could not hear any of the Wanda’s power levels from behind a closed bedroom door. 

Part of the reason the VeDO Wanda is quiet is that it’s more moderately powered than some wands. Though it still packs a reasonable punch.

If you want more power while remaining discreet, the Viben Sultry has 1.5 times the power of the VeDO Wanda – and my partner could not hear it behind a closed door either.

Wand mounts hold your vibrator and free your hands – alone or during sex (my favorite way to use them). 

We test our wands’ compatibility with Liberator wand mounts – the Axis and Wanda (yes, the mount has the same name as this wand vibrator). So I’ll go ahead and use their full names when referring to them.

The VeDO Wanda gets a 9 for mount compatibility. Not perfect, but certainly above average. 

When using the Liberator Axis, you lie face down along the mount. The Axis holds the VeDO Wanda between your legs, and the head’s side broadly stimulates your clit. This works especially well for effortless stimulation during sex from behind. 

Wand In Use with Axis Overlay
My typical position when using the Liberator Axis mount (demonstrated with BMS PalmPower Extreme)

In this position, the VeDO Wanda provides plenty of vibes. Though I especially love using curved wands with the Axis because they provide even better clitoral contact and pressure. The BMS PalmPower Extreme is one of my favorites.

The Liberator Wanda mount holds your wand more upright. Since the VeDO Wanda is shorter than full-sized wands, its head sits only slightly above the mount which is easier to grind on! You can sit on the larger end of the mount and lean or grind against the vibrating head.

VeDO Wanda with Wand Mount in Use
The VeDO Wanda wand in the Liberator Wanda Mount – best used while sitting

Or you can flip the mount around and bend over to provide room for penetration. In this case, the VeDO Wanda’s shorter size makes it a touch more difficult to use – you’ve got to keep your body low enough to be in contact with the wand, but high enough to create space for penetration.Whereas taller wands like the Viben Sultry don’t require you to get so low.

But the VeDO Wanda is doable if you’re up for some flexibility.
If good mount compatibility is a nice bonus to you, the VeDO Wanda will work well. If it’s a huge priority, my favorite wand to use with Liberator’s mounts is the BMS PalmPower Extreme.
