Our Verdict

The We-Vibe Wand is an excellent premium wand vibrator. Its overall performance is comparable to other wands in its price range, but the We-Vibe Wand’s distinctive features will set it apart for some people. These include app control, a unique joystick, and two wand attachments that come with it.

The We-Vibe Wand has a great power range and rumbliness. It begins more softly than other full-sized wands. And its joystick allows you to increase power smoothly and gradually to reach its maximum strength. 

Its top power is less extreme than other wands in its price range, like the Magic Wand Rechargeable or BMS PalmPower Extreme. But it’s still way stronger than I need, and I find its highest settings comfortable. I typically find more power than this overwhelming. 

The app control is just okay. Connectivity is reliable, but the features are basic, there’s some delay in responsiveness, and it’s less intuitive than the Lovense Domi 2 (a better app-controlled wand if a quality app is your top priority).

The We-Vibe Wand’s elegant curved shape and tall, thin head make it easy to leverage for firm pressure. And the body-safe silicone feels comfortable and luxurious. It’s a good option for those who want an elegant, feature-rich wand and enjoy gentle-to-powerful (but not extreme) vibrations.

Table of Contents

The We-Vibe Wand is a premium, full-sized wand vibrator. It was unavailable for a few years, but We-Vibe began selling it again in September 2023. It competes with premium wands like the Magic Wand Rechargeable and BMS PalmPower Extreme. It’s also one of the only app-controlled wand vibrators alongside the Lovense Domi 2 (an app-controlled mini wand), although the We-Vibe app is worse than Lovense’s.

It has a unique joystick to gradually and continuously adjust power. It has 9 vibration patterns, is coated in silky silicone, and is IPX7 waterproof, so it can be completely submerged. It also has an optional Smart Silence feature, which prevents it from vibrating when not in contact with skin. A nearby or long-distance partner can control the We-Vibe Wand through the app. It uses a standard USB magnetic recharging cable that matches We-Vibe’s other products. And it comes with two wand attachments for clitoral or penis stimulation.

Compare Wand Vibrators​

The We-Vibe Wand is excellent but has slightly lower overall performance than other premium wands – primarily if you care about exceptional power or rumbliness. For instance, the Fun Factory Vim is more rumbly. And the Magic Wand Rechargeable and PalmPower Extreme are more powerful. 

But the We-Vibe Wand has unique features that make it a good value and worth considering. It has two attachments, so you don’t need to spend extra for variety. And it has app control for more comprehensive control or long-distance play.

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 We-Vibe Wand has a great power range that reaches intense levels but starts extremely soft for those who need mild stimulation too. The unique joystick control lets you gradually adjust power. So it has more intermediate levels than most comparable wands.

But a downside of the joystick is that you need to time how long you hold it properly. There’s a slight delay between the moment you begin holding (or releasing) the joystick and the moment the power starts (or stops) changing. As a result, it can be easy to over or undershoot your intended strength.

We-Vibe Wand Joystick
The We-Vibe Wand’s joystick control has a slight delay in responsiveness, so it can be easy to over or undershoot your target strength

The We-Vibe Wand’s lowest setting of 0.2 out of 10 vibration strength is the softest power any of my full-sized wands reach. This is awesome if you like a slow build or get easily overstimulated without a warmup.

The top strength is a 6.7 out of 10. Although some other wands are more powerful, including the BMS PalmPower Extreme and Magic Wand Rechargeable, the We-Vibe Wand is still much stronger than my non-wand vibrators. I don’t need to use the top strengths to orgasm – the middle powers are enough for me. However, I can still comfortably enjoy the We-Vibe Wand’s upper levels without feeling overwhelmed, as more intense settings often make me feel.
The We-Vibe Wand is excellent if you’re looking for powerful vibrations but want to avoid settings that feel too extreme. And you prefer a lot of intermediate levels between gentle and strong.

Vibrations: Frequency (Rumbliness)


Rumbliness Rating:

7.7

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 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.

Show All Scores (Click to See):

Low-frequency, rumbly vibrations travel deeper and are what most people prefer over buzzy vibrations. But it is a preference, so consider what you like!

The We-Vibe Wand has great rumbliness, like most of the brand’s toys – the We-Vibe Tango X and We-Vibe Touch X are two of my most rumbly mini vibrators too.

The We-Vibe Wand’s lower two-thirds of its power range is extremely rumbly, and even its highest settings remain moderately rumbly. Its rumbliness is comparable to other wands in this price range, including the Magic Wand Rechargeable and PalmPower Extreme.

A few wands feel even deeper at similar strengths, including the pricier Fun Factory Vim or more budget-friendly Lovense Domi 2.

So it depends on your preferences when it comes to rumbliness. I prefer some rumbliness, but not too much, so the We-Vibe Wand is in a good spot for me. It’s a great choice for most people unless you have more extreme preferences regarding rumbliness.

Additional Features

The We-Vibe app is basic and a little disappointing. It still works, but if app-control is your main priority, the Lovense Domi 2 is a better wand for you. 

We-Vibe’s main app features are limited and unintuitive. And the connectivity and responsiveness are just okay (we discuss connectivity and responsiveness here).

As We-Vibe has continued to update its app, the features have become more bare-bones over time. For instance, you used to be able to draw and create your own vibration patterns in the We-Vibe app. Now, you can only select from predesigned patterns.

You can control the vibration pattern and intensity a few ways. The “Single Vibe” screen lets you choose a predesigned vibration pattern and then drag up or down on the screen to change the intensity. 

If you want to quickly jump between patterns, use the “Multi Vibe” setting. This provides four quadrants, each corresponding to a vibration pattern. Drag the on-screen dot into one of the quadrants, and the We-Vibe Wand will vibrate on that pattern. Dragging farther out from the center increases the vibration strength. You change the vibration patterns in each quadrant.

You can no longer create your own pattern, so you must stick to one of the presets. You can create a “Playlist” by stringing together different patterns but can’t change their intensity.

Using “Beat Mode” is supposed to make the We-Vibe Wand vibrate along to your favorite songs, but it often just vibrates on a constant power the entire time. Changing between Bass, Mid, and Treble doesn’t change the vibrations, nor does adjusting the intensity threshold. This glitch is specific to the We-Vibe Wand. Beat Mode works correctly with my other app-controlled We-Vibe toys like the Chorus and Sync

The “Ambient Noise” feature should make your We-Vibe Wand vibrate stronger when the noise picked up by your phone’s mic is louder. But in my experience, the We-Vibe Wand just vibrates on a constant power regardless of the background sound. Again, this feature works correctly with my other We-Vibe app-controlled toys.

The We-Vibe Wand is my only full-sized wand with app control. The main control screens (Single Vibe and Multi Vibe) work well – they’re just basic. So if you want a full-sized wand with app control as a bonus, it can still be a good choice. 

But if excellent app control is important to you, I recommend the Lovense Domi 2 instead. It’s a smaller wand, but has much better app functionality and features.


App Control: Long Distance Features


Long-Distance Features Rating:

6.7

What is it:

The quality of the app’s long-distance features (with a partner anywhere in the world). This includes its long-distance control functionality, in-app video chatting capabilities, versatility, and ease of use. You’ll also want to consider its connectivity.

When does it matter:

When you want to share control of your toy with a partner farther away than the toy’s Bluetooth range. You can connect with a partner anywhere in the world using the app’s long-distance mode as long as you each have wifi or cell data.

The We-Vibe Wand’s app is alright during long-distance mode. It gives you the basic features that you need for long-distance play. 

You can text with a partner, send photos, share control of your wand, and video call. When your partner controls your toy, they can adjust the intensity and patterns through the “Single Vibe” and “Multi Vibe” screens discussed above in Close Range Features.

The video chat feature allows you to mute or turn off your video feed anytime if you’d rather your partner not see or hear you. Or if you’d like to see your partner better, you can minimize the control panel and make the video full-screen.

If your partner also has a We-Vibe toy, you can simultaneously control each other’s. 

The section for partner play is less intuitive than other apps like Lovense when it comes to notifying you of their activity and requests. You must go to your partner’s chat screen to see if they’ve requested control of your toy. If you don’t communicate first outside of the We-Vibe app letting your partner know you’re about to send a request, it’s unlikely they’ll see your request.

You can store multiple partners, but you can’t send out anonymous links like you can with Lovense. Anyone controlling your toy will need your We-Vibe username.

We-Vibe’s long-distance experience covers the basics but is more challenging to use than some. If long-distance play is your priority, the Lovense Domi 2 is a better wand for you.

Bluetooth Connectivity Range

The We-Vibe Wand’s connectivity with the app is good, but the responsiveness to the app is poor. My other We-Vibe toys, including the Chorus and Sync, provide a much better experience, but the We-Vibe Wand struggles.

The connectivity itself is reliable. For instance, the We-Vibe app walks you through a simple process to connect the app and wand together. This process works correctly, and I never have issues getting the wand paired with the app. Once it’s paired, it stays reliably connected. I don’t have issues with the connection dropping out and needing to repair the wand.

During our testing, the We-Vibe Wand and app remained connected by Bluetooth when separated up to 388 feet. But since this isn’t a wearable like the We-Vibe Chorus, it’s not a huge benefit. And you can, of course, connect from anywhere in the world using the long-distance mode.

However, there are responsiveness issues between the app and the wand. When using the main Single Vibe and Multi Vibe screens to control the We-Vibe Wand, there is occasionally a couple-second delay between making an adjustment in the app and the wand’s vibrations changing. 

Sometimes, it works smoothly. Other times, the delay is there. If you make frequent changes, you’ll find it distracting.

The “Beat Mode” and “Ambient Noise” features don’t respond to anything. Instead, they just remain constantly vibrating regardless of changes I make in the app. So, if you’re particularly interested in those features, you can’t count on them. The Lovense Domi is much better with regular control and the music or ambient-noise responsiveness.

If app control is a top priority (not just a fun bonus), the Domi is a better choice.


Comfort & Ease Of Use


Comfort & Ease of Use Rating:

8.6

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.

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 We-Vibe Wand has fantastic comfort and ease of use. 

The long, curved handle is comfortable and easy to grip. The curve helps you leverage the wand more easily for firm pressure. And I find it comfy with the curve facing toward or away from you. The handle is especially slim near the controls, providing your finger a comfortable resting place near the joystick. Some vibrations travel into the handle, but it’s nothing too distracting.

The We-Vibe wand has the tallest head of all my wands, but it’s not too wide. The three full inches of head length provide a great amount of surface to cover the whole vulva and provide lovely broad stimulation. But since the head isn’t too wide, it doesn’t hit the sides of your legs much. It’s very easy to sandwich comfortably between your legs.

We-Vibe Wand Tallest Head vs Other Wands
The We-Vibe Wand’s head (left) is taller than any of my other wands

The head is primarily firm and can jostle around a bit from the rumbly vibrations. But if this bothers you, the back side of the head is slightly more plush. Despite its large size, it’s easy to move around.

The joystick control is unique to the We-Vibe Wand and has advantages and disadvantages – whether you’ll enjoy it is a preference. Hold the joystick up or down to change the vibration power slowly. The main advantage is that this gives you easy access to any power level within its range instead of being limited to preset power levels.

And some people will find holding a switch easier than the alternative of keeping a small button pushed down. The joystick is pretty firm, so I have to use two hands on the We-Vibe Wand to adjust power, but my partner can do it easily with one hand. You may find this more accessible or more challenging to use. There’s also a slight delay between the joystick activation and the vibration change (discussed in the power section above)

The We-Vibe Wand also has a unique optional feature called Smart Silence, which prevents the toy from vibrating unless pressed against your body. This can be helpful for discretion since many toys are louder when vibrating in the open air than when pushed to your body. The Smart Silence feature works surprisingly well. The vibrations start and stop instantly upon pressing it to my body and lifting it off. And it can tell whether the head is in contact with me or some other random object. If you do not like this feature, it’s easy to turn off.

The We-Vibe Wand is great during sex, especially for a full-sized wand.

What gives the We-Vibe Wand a boost is the tall, cylindrical-shaped head. Because the head is tall, you get the broad stimulation you expect from a wand vibrator. But the head is narrower than most full-sized wands, so I can fit it closer to my clit even in face-to-face sex positions where space is limited (like Missionary or Cowgirl). The handle’s curve also prevents the wand from hitting my partner’s body in these positions.

The rumbly vibrations also help because they travel deep into my body and impact the entire area – so I don’t need to position the We-Vibe Wand that precisely.

I love the We-Vibe Wand in more open positions like Spooning and Doggystyle too. The head size is perfect for firm, evenly distributed pressure. And the handle is long enough to prop against the bed to help support the wand when I get tired of holding it.

The We-Vibe Wand has discreet sound levels. During our testing, my partner could not hear the wand on any power level from the other side of a closed door – even without using the Smart Silence feature. 

However, I was surprised because the wand can make a rattling noise depending on how you hold it. If you’re sensitive to noise, you may find the rattle distracting even though it’s unlikely to be heard by housemates. In this case, you may consider the Fun Factory Vim or Magic Wand Rechargeable instead.

But if you’re just worried about people you live with overhearing, the We-Vibe Wand is a discreet option with good strength.

The We-Vibe Wand has excellent attachment compatibility and even comes with two attachments of its own! This is part of what makes the We-Vibe Wand a good value. One provides fluttery stimulation for your clit, and the other provides penis stimulation. You cannot buy these attachments separately at We-Vibe or other shops.

We-Vibe Wand Attachments
The We-Vibe Wand comes with two of its own attachments, the clitoral stimulator (left) and penis stimulator (right)

The clit stimulator is a flutter-tip ring that wraps around the entire head. It provides a gentle “flicking” sensation that I love. The small curved flaps range in height, so you can choose what’s most comfortable. They sort of sandwich the clit, and can transfer slow and soft flutters on low power, and quicker, substantial ones on high.

The penis attachment has textured ridges on the bottom that stimulate the frenulum and smooth wings that wrap around the side of the shaft. It doesn’t completely enclose the penis as a stroker would, so my partner says he needs to keep one hand near the unenclosed side to keep his penis “on-track” moving back and forth through the attachment. He finds the stimulation very enjoyable and better than similar attachments like the Le Wand Loop.

Because the We-Vibe Wand is full-sized, it’s also compatible with various attachments from other brands. You can find a compatible attachment for pretty much any kind of stimulation including clit, G-spot, penis, prostate, and dual-stimulation.

We-Vibe Wand Liberator Axis Wand Mount Compatibility Photo

Compatibility with Axis:

9.0

What is it:

How well a wand vibrator fits with the Liberator Axis wand mount. Whether the wand fits correctly and securely, and whether it can provide quality, comfortable clit stimulation when the wand is placed in the mount.

When does it matter:

If you own or plan to purchase the Axis mount. You can use this mount solo or with a partner, but I find it best for hands-free stimulation during partnered sex. You can lie on top of the mount face-down, and it makes using your wand vibrator hands-free during sex from behind comfortable and easy. (Like a more relaxing version of the Doggystyle sex position)

What is it:

How well a wand vibrator fits with the Liberator Wanda mount. Whether the wand fits correctly and securely, and whether it can provide quality, comfortable clit stimulation when the wand is placed in the mount.

When does it matter:

If you own or plan to purchase the Wanda mount. This mount is best if you enjoy positions on your knees. With the Axis mount, it’s easiest to lie on top of it. But you’ll straddle the Wanda on your knees. You can use it solo or with a partner.

The We-Vibe Wand is excellent in my wand mounts for hands-free play. I test my wands with the Liberator Axis and Wanda wand mounts

The Axis holds the wand toward your clit horizontally at a slight upward angle. You lie on your stomach along the mount for effortless, hands-free stimulation. The We-Vibe Wand stays firmly inserted in this mount and holds the head at a great angle. 

Typically, curved or angled wands in the Axis reach your clit more easily and provide better clitoral contact over straight wands (the angled BMS PalmPower Extreme is the best wand to use with the Axis). But the We-Vibe Wand’s curve begins too far back along the handle to provide additional benefit when placed in the Axis. The We-Vibe Wand’s head is positioned from the end of the Axis’s fabric just like a straight wand. Still, the hands-free clitoral stimulation is excellent.

The We-Vibe Wand is exceptionally versatile when placed in the Liberator Wanda mount. When using the Wanda Mount, you can straddle the mount, lower your weight down onto it, or kneel over it on your hands and knees (which works great for hands-free stimulation during sex).

In this mount, the We-Vibe Wand’s curve does affect the way the mount holds the wand. Facing the We-Vibe Wand different directions will change where the head is positioned above the mount. 

This allows you to vary the pressure and stimulation or locate the wand in a better spot for your particular body position. The tall head offers a comfortable, broad surface for excellent hands-free stimulation.
