The We-Vibe Sync and Chorus are the two most recent updates to We-Vibe’s couples toy line. These toys vibrate on both your clit and G-spot for hands-free stimulation during partnered sex.
I’m someone who needs additional stimulation to make sex enjoyable. So I was delighted to find these hands-free wearables.
I’ve actually had the We-Vibe Chorus for a couple of years now. And it was the only wearable couples toy that could bring me to orgasm. The flexible C-shaped models by others (like the Lelo Tiani 3) always fit too loosely for me to get solid clit stimulation. And purely external toys like the Dame Eva were hard to position and often fell out.
But I wanted to see how the previous We-Vibe model compared. The older We-Vibe Sync is less expensive. And if it worked well too, I wanted to be able to recommend a cheaper alternative to the Chorus.
So I bought the We-Vibe Sync as well.
After using both these remote control vibrators during sex, for some solo play, and in public, I have some thoughts to share!
So whether you’re looking to buy one of these for the first time or considering upgrading from the Sync to the newer Chorus… I’ll give you all the info you need to make your decision in this We-Vibe Chorus vs Sync comparison!
Main Ways to Use the We-Vibe Sync and Chorus
First, you maybe be considering the Sync and Chorus for several reasons. There are a few ways to use them!
You can use for them for:
- Hands-free stimulation (both clitoral and G-spot) during penetrative sex
- Discreet public play
- Long-distance relationships
- Hands-free dual-stimulation during solo play
But I think the best way to use the Sync and Chorus is to get hands-free stimulation during sex. That’s what these toys do best – and they do it better than any other vibrators I’ve tried.
Couples toys like the Sync and Chorus are slimmer than other wearable vibrators. So they can fit easily between your bodies to give you the clit stimulation you need during sex – without needing to use your hands or hold a toy to your clit.
But they’re not as strong or secure-fitting while walking around as other wearable vibes designed primarily for public play or solo use like egg vibrators or vibrating panties.
So if you’re looking for strength and something very easy to wear around, but you don’t need a toy to use during PIV sex (penis in vagina), I’d recommend an egg or panty vibe instead. Those are better for public play.
Some stimulating dual-stimulation wearables, like the Lovense Dolce and Lelo Ida, are also great for hands-free solo use. But they’re too big to be used during sex. And they are also not comfortable enough to wear in public.
While the Chorus and Sync are capable of public play and solo fun, that’s not where they shine. Instead, they save their gusto for during-sex use. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’re in the right place.
In this article, I’ll mostly be comparing the We-Vibe Chorus vs Sync when it comes to during sex use. But I’ve tried them both solo, and for public play as well! So I’ll sprinkle in some of those observations too.
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: Performance During Sex
Of all the wearables I own, the Sync and Chorus are the only ones that bring me to orgasm hands-free during sex! I mean, ultimate goal, right? No hands, purely focused on enjoying sex with my partner?
The Sync and Chorus provide a comparable experience during sex with slight differences.
First – the Chorus provides slightly more intense stimulation during sex.
The Chorus’ C-shape clasps more securely on my clit and G-spot. So the vibrations press into my clit a little firmer, which feels more intense. This tighter fit is why I orgasm more easily from the Chorus.
The Sync’s hinge is a little looser.
It still gives you a good, secure fit. But the toy does not sit quite as tight to my clit as the Chorus, so I feel the Sync’s vibrations less.
But again, both toys can take me all the way – it just takes me a little longer with the Sync than the Chorus.
The Chorus and Sync also have different remotes, which affect the experience during sex a bit.
While the We-Vibe Chorus remote has some extra features like Squeeze control, I find the Sync’s remote is more convenient to hold and press the buttons during sex. So if you don’t need fancy features, you may prefer using the We-Vibe Sync’s simple remote control.
If you’re using the We-Vibe app to control the toy, the Sync connects to the app more quickly and easily.
They both maintain a reliable connection to the app for us, but We-Vibe made a strange design decision with the Chorus: The Chorus connects to the app through its squeeze remote. So you have to keep the remote nearby even if you’re just using the app to control the Chorus.
And it adds an extra pairing step, where you’ll need to hold a button on the remote control to connect to the app. So the Chorus requires more busywork than the Sync. It works, but it’s just odd, clunky, and takes a few more seconds to get going.
So overall, the Chorus is better during sex if you care most about better stimulation and a tighter fit.
But the We-Vibe Sync is better during sex if you would rather have slightly softer stimulation and prefer more straightforward controls. Though the Sync fits slightly more loosely, it’s only a subtle difference.
Now I’ll break these toys down a bit more in-depth by category below.
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: Vibrations and Stimulation
The Sync and Chorus each have two vibrating motors: one in the clit-arm, and another in the G-spot arm.
As I was checking customer reviews, I noticed a rumor that the Chorus had stronger vibes than the We-Vibe Sync. But I did not find this to be true.
I think the vibration power of the We-Vibe Chorus and Sync are equal.
But I agree that the Chorus’s tighter fit allows those vibes to press more firmly where you need them. Since the Chorus fits more snug against your clit, the vibrations feel more intense than the Sync’s.
So ultimately, the Chorus does beat out the Sync by a tiny bit when it comes to stimulation.
They’re each about medium-strength compared to other kinds of wearable vibrators. They’re less powerful than some wearables that aren’t intended to wear during sex, like the Lush 3 or Lovense Ferri.
But the Sync and Chorus are both the strongest of all the toys we’ve tested that are designed for you to wear during sex for hands-free stimulation.
And the clit vibrations of both the Sync and Chorus are extremely rumbly.
The medium-intensity, deeply rumbly vibes are a perfect combo to enhance sex without overstimulating. Enough to bring me to orgasm but not cause my partner to finish before I’m ready.
Here’s what a user of the Sync had to say about it:
“I’m the type of girl for whom clitoral stimulation is an absolute must to get me to come. Which is why the Sync has been a big hit in our household. Love the very assertive vibrations (enjoyed by me and him as well).”We-Vibe Customer Feedback
The G-spot motors on both toys are fairly buzzy and are low-powered. While each has a G-spot motor, both toys focus primarily on providing clit stimulation.
Another Sync-user found this surprising. Since We-Vibe is pretty known for the rumbly feel of their toys:
“The G-spot arm [on the Sync] was surprisingly buzzy. None of the reviews before I got it even mentioned that. The G-spot arm is supposed to be more impactful on the Chorus (more bump, more strength) so that’s good.”–Reddit User’s Experience
However, I did not find the G-spot arm of the Chorus to be any more rumbly than the Sync’s.
The lower power of the internal vibrations is one reason I recommend stronger options like the Lush 3 for solo play.
But during sex, the low power of these G-spot vibes is not a problem. They enhance the sensations from penetration, but don’t overpower it. And it also won’t be overstimulating for your partner.
The vibes feel really great to me when paired with penetration, which presses the vibes more firmly into my G-spot.
Winner: Vibrations & Stimulation – Chorus
The We-Vibe Chorus’s stimulation is a bit more intense than the Sync, so I orgasm more easily with it. The Chorus’ better fit ensures all the vibration power makes it to your clit!
However, the difference is pretty slight.
So when it comes to vibe-strength, if you’re on a tight budget… I think you’ll have quite a similar experience with the We-Vibe Sync. And you’ll save $50!
If you want the absolute best stimulation, go with the Chorus.
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: Fit and Comfort
The Sync and Chorus are very similar in shape and size. But there are two small differences:
- The We-Vibe Chorus holds its shape better. It’s not as loose and flexible as the Sync.
- The Chorus has a slightly wider G-spot arm.
Because the Sync is more flexible than the Chorus, the Sync’s external arm rests on my clit. Whereas the Chorus pushes the vibes into my body so I feel the full impact. The Chorus provides a closer experience to using a handheld toy you can maneuver and leverage to apply pressure where you want it.
Again, this stimulation difference is slight. So it’s not a deal-breaker for the We-Vibe Sync. I can orgasm from both. But I get there quicker with the Chorus.
Both toys have two adjustable points on the toy to help you get the right fit for your personal anatomy. This is why both of them provide much better stimulation than We-Vibe’s cheaper models without hinges (the We-Vibe Match and We-Vibe Unite).
Some people need to play around with the adjustment more than others.
“The hinges did allow for a decent fit, though they did take some trial and error to get in the right position for my body.”Reddit User’s Experience
Both toys sit securely along my body without moving around uncomfortably. And this is true whether it’s during sex, sitting, standing, walking, or just laying. Both the Sync and Chorus fit better than any of my other C-shaped couples toys.
It’s also very easy to insert the Sync and Chorus’s G-spot arm. Each toy’s inner arm is thin enough for most people to fit a penis or dildo without discomfort!
Some other couples vibrators like the Satisfyer Double Joy have such a large G-spot arm that it interferes with penetration. But both the Sync and Chorus provided plenty of space.
The Chorus’ G-spot arm is slightly wider than the Sync’s, which is supposed to help it fit more securely. But I didn’t notice any difference from the wider arm personally. Both the Sync and Chorus stayed in place on my clit and G-spot during sex.
Another Sync-user expressed similar sentiments:
“I assumed this would fall out during sex, make us uncomfortable or lose connection but we never had any issues!”We-Vibe Customer Feedback
And while walking around, both toys also stayed in position. However, I recommend tight underwear if you plan to wear one around. And it’s best to wear form-fitting pants instead of something flowy. Even though it stays in pretty well, it’s not as secure as an egg vibrator or panty vibrator – so those are better to wear out of the bedroom.
Winner: Fit and Comfort – Chorus
The Chorus wins for Fit & Comfort mostly because it has a slightly better fit on my clit.
This makes the Chorus’ vibrations feel more impactful than the Sync’s. That helps me orgasm more easily. But if you prefer gentler stimulation, you may favor the Sync.
Both stay in place securely and are comfortable to wear during sex and solo.
If you want a tight fit with better pressure, go for the Chorus! But if you enjoy softer stimulation, the Sync’s more flexible shape will work for you. And you can save around $50.
Chorus Squeeze Remote vs Basic Sync Remote
Another big way the Sync and Chorus differ is in their remotes.
The Chorus has a larger, uniquely soft remote with Squeeze Control. The harder you squeeze on the remote’s squishy silicone, the stronger the Chorus vibrates.
On the other hand, the Sync has a traditional, small, 4-button remote without any bonus control features.
While the soft silicone of the Chorus’ remote feels nice and luxurious in your hand, its squeeze function is difficult to use. You really have to squeeze it to get any power. It’s genuinely tiring and distracts me from enjoying the Chorus’ vibrations between my legs.
So I just use the Chorus’ buttons the same way I use the Sync’s basic remote.
And the Sync’s smaller remote is easier to hold during sex or hide discreetly in my pocket if we’re out.
The Chorus also connects to the We-Vibe app through the remote. So even if you only want to use the app to control the Chorus, you must bring its remote with you! And this remote is larger and less discreet than the Sync’s.
So you can’t just keep the squeeze remote hidden away in a pocket like you can with the Sync’s. You’ll need to bring a purse along.
The We-Vibe Sync connects directly to the app. So if you don’t intend to use the remote, you can just leave it at home. And if you want to bring it along, it fits discreetly in a pocket (even the unreasonably tiny pockets of women’s jeans).
If you feel interested in the quality feel of the Chorus’s remote, or the squeeze-control, then it’s great! The We-Vibe Sync’s remote is better for something smaller to hold and easier to hide.
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: Connectivity
Connectivity is a big deal with remote or app-controlled toys. Nobody wants the IT guy in their bedroom. (Unless it’s Kumail Nanjiani).
The We-Vibe Sync and Chorus’s connectivity is about the same, but for different reasons.
First – the We-Vibe Sync is easier and more convenient to pair with the We-Vibe app than the Chorus.
The Chorus pairs to the app through its remote. So there’s more of a button-pressing process you have to go through to pair it. And you’ll need to bring the Chorus’s remote with you even if you just plan to use the app.
Whereas the Sync just requires a click of one button on the toy to pair. And you don’t need to have the Sync’s remote with you to use the app.
The Chorus isn’t too difficult to pair now that they’ve updated the app. Pre-June 2022, it required more troubleshooting. Since the 2022 We-Vibe app update, both my Chorus and Sync pair reliably to the app.
Once you do it a few times, you start to get the hang of the process.
Everything else about the app connectivity was the same between the Chorus and Sync.
They can disconnect from the app on occasion. But it’s not too frequent (again, the June 2022 app update helped this).
If you disconnect, both toys often re-pair without any effort. But sometimes you have to get involved. If you’re at home, it’s not a big deal. It just takes going through the button click process to get them paired again.
But if you’re in public, this can be a touch more awkward. What with the sticking the hands down the pants and all. So it can require a quick trip to the bathroom.
Connecting with a long-distance partner in the We-Vibe app is pretty quick for both toys. But we have noticed one issue with the We-Vibe Sync and the Chorus. You have to be on a certain page in the We-Vibe app to see your partner’s invite.
Before we realized this, we missed several of each other’s invites. But this is not a connectivity issue – more of a poor app design decision that hopefully will be updated soon.
For now, you may need to communicate with your partner outside the We-Vibe app first. That way, you can let them know you’re about to send them an invite on the app so they can head to the page they’ll receive your request.
When using the physical remotes, I’ve found the Chorus’ buttons are more responsive.
My Sync remote sometimes does not respond to a click if I’ve been buzzing along without clicking for a while. But I can resolve this by holding down any remote button for 5 seconds to re-pair.
I haven’t noticed any disconnections during prolonged inactivity with the Chorus.
Of course, both toys will disconnect if you go out of range due to distance. But they pair again automatically once back in range.
And speaking of range – both toys can go over 100 feet away from the app before disconnecting. Actually, a lot over 100!
In my tests, the Chorus could go 175 feet and the Sync made it 200 feet!
Of course this will differ based on your environment and anything that comes between the toy and app. But either distance gives you the opportunity for some across-the-room fun.
I did see some reviews that mentioned more connectivity problems like this one:
“The user interface is dreadful and it will disconnect randomly or sometimes just not work at all. It’s a great concept and when it actually works it’s amazing.”Lovehoney Customer Feedback
That particular quote was from 2021, and I do actually know what they’re talking about. I’ve had the Chorus since 2020, and toward the beginning, I had more issues with pairing and staying connected.
But the recent update helped with this issue. And I’ve been happy with the connectivity on both toys since then.
Winner: Connectivity – Depends
The Chorus has a slightly more complex pairing process that requires you to keep the remote by you – even if you’re just using the app.
So the We-Vibe Sync is more convenient during app use.
But the We-Vibe Chorus remote stays paired more reliably than the Sync’s remote.
If you plan to use the app more, pick the Sync. But if you think you’ll primarily use the remote to control your toy, the Chorus will stay connected better between long breaks in pressing buttons.
Neither one of these issues is a huge deal-breaker though. It will just take some practice!
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: Noise
The Sync and Chorus are two of the quieter wearable vibrators. Both are the same volume on the highest setting. But the Chorus’s lowest setting is a little softer than the Sync’s lowest setting.
So there’s only an impactful difference if you plan to use this toy in exceptionally quiet places, since the Chorus allows you to access even more discreet low power levels.
We tested both toys in several locations: a quiet coffee shop, a brewery, and home.
Both toys were completely inaudible on all power levels and patterns at the coffee shop and the brewery.
It was only at home that we noticed a difference. We tested both toys with my partner and me in a silent room of our house, seated about 10 feet away. I slowly increased power levels, and my partner let me know when he could start to hear it.
We could reach about 40-60% power for the Chorus before he could hear it. While the Sync only made it to about 30-50%. Overall it’s not a huge difference.
All wearable toys are best in places with at least some ambient noise. So you can be confident in using all the power levels. If you’re super concerned about sound, you could check out an even quieter egg vibrator like the We-Vibe Jive.
We also tested whether someone would hear either toy on the other side of a closed bedroom door. I used the Sync and Chorus in our bedroom while my partner stood on the other side and listened in.
He couldn’t hear either toy!
So no need to worry about nosey roommates hearing.
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: Battery Life & Charging
The Sync and Chorus are both rechargeable toys – woohoo!
They have fancy little charging ports holding the toy and the remote. I’m a huge fan of these cases for organization’s sake. Plus they just look good sitting there!
When it comes to battery life, the We-Vibe Sync lasts for a little bit longer than the Chorus.
I tested all my couples vibrators by charging them fully, then letting them run on max power until their batteries died. I checked on them every 10 minutes to see which ones were still going.
The Chorus lasted for about 65 minutes on high. While the Sync lasted 85 minutes.
You’ll be able to stretch those batteries a little longer if you stick to the lower powers. But if you want the longer of the two, choose the Sync!
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus: App Control (Close Range & Long Distance Features)
The Sync and Chorus use the same app, so there are very few differences!
The one way they differ is that the Chorus has “Touch-Sense” modes available through the app. You can select three different modes that will change the Chorus’ vibrations when you touch a sensor on the toy.
Theoretically, this allows the natural movements of your and your partner’s bodies control the Chorus.
However, I’ve found this to be very finicky. It usually isn’t very responsive to touch. As a result, I don’t really use it. So from a practical standpoint, the available app-control features are the same for the We-Vibe Sync and Chorus.
There are several other great features available for both the Chorus and Sync though!
For those unfamiliar with the We-Vibe app, you have 10 different preset patterns to select. Then raise or lower the intensity of each one.
We-Vibe’s newest update makes it less intuitive to find all these patterns, in my opinion. But it does make it easier to quickly switch between your 4 favorite patterns with this “Multi Vibe” setup.
And this allows you to set the clit and G-spot motor to two different patterns and intensities.
You can also control the toy through “Touch Mode” as well. This is supposed to mimic fingering. So the vibes get quicker and stronger as you move your fingers over the screen faster.
This is a much more hands-on feature, requiring you to keep your fingers busy the whole time. It’s not a great “set it and forget it” option like the Multi Vibe setup is.
You can also create your own pattern through the app, but it’s not a very user-friendly experience. You have to draw out the pattern before you feel it. So it’s hard to design something you know you’ll like.
I usually stick to the preset patterns in the Multi Vibe screen.
Previously, the We-Vibe app had a feature that would let you buzz along to your favorite songs. And another that was responsive to the noise around you.
The noise function was great for a club setting. Or for keeping your toy at a volume that fit with the room. Since the vibes only get louder when your environment gets louder.
With the new update, this feature is listed as “Coming Soon.” So hopefully that will show up again shortly.
In long-distance play, We-Vibe recently added the ability for you to save multiple partners if you’d like. You can text with them, voice call, send photos, video chat, and let them control your We-Vibe toy!
Since the 2022 app update, I’ve had great experiences with We-Vibe’s long-distance control.
Winner: App Features – Essentially The Same
The Chorus technically has one more app feature than the Sync: Touch-Sense modes. These may work better for others, but it does not really work for me.
Besides this, the app experience is the same between the two toys! So I’d recommend basing your toy-decision off the other aspects.
Other Specs Comparison
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus Materials
Both the We-Vibe Sync and Chorus are made of a smooth, silky silicone and are 100% body-safe. The Chorus’ remote is also a squishy silicone, whereas the Sync’s remote is plastic.
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus Waterproof Rating
The Sync and Chorus are IPX7 Waterproof. So you can fully submerge both of these toys! Bring them into the tub, pool, shower, and enjoy!
We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus Color Options
The We-Vibe Chorus has more color options than the Sync.
The Chorus comes in purple, cosmic pink, coral, a metallic blue, or the light blue I have from Lovehoney.
While the Sync only has a plain aqua or purple. I enjoy the shade of aqua I have though!
We-Vibe Chorus vs Sync Comparison Results
So is the $50 price difference worth grabbing the newer We-Vibe Chorus over the We-Vibe Sync? Well here are the main differences so you can decide for yourself.
Since the Chorus has a firmer hinge, you can get a tighter fit on your clit. So yes, I get slightly better clit stimulation from the Chorus even though their power is the same. I can orgasm quicker and more easily from the Chorus personally.
However, the difference in stimulation is subtle, and I found that the We-Vibe Sync’s more flexible hinge is still enough to enjoy the experience and receive good stimulation. I can orgasm from the Sync too – it just takes me a bit longer.
The other major difference is their remote controls. The Chorus’ has some extra features like squeeze control which can be fun and engaging. But I also find the Sync’s smaller, simple remote is convenient during sex.
If money’s not a limit, I’d go with the Chorus since hands-free stimulation during sex is the main reason to use these toys. And I find it easier to orgasm with the We-Vibe Chorus. But for $50 less, the We-Vibe Sync is nearly as stimulating. But it may take you longer to get there.
I think you should choose the We-Vibe Chorus if you:
- Want the best hands-free stimulation during sex. The Chorus’ better fit provides more impactful stimulation than the Sync.
- Enjoy gripping down on something during sex and think you’ll like the Squeeze Control feature
- Are looking for 65 minutes of battery life (and maybe a bit more on lower-powers)
- Don’t mind bringing the remote along when you plan to use the We-Vibe app (the toy connects through the remote, so you need to bring it with you)
- Are not sure you will love it, and want the option to return for a refund (Lovehoney refunds you if you don’t enjoy your toy – they sell the Chorus but not the Sync)
I think you should choose the We-Vibe Sync if you:
- Want a slightly looser fit against the clit for softer stimulation (if you often feel overstimulated by toys, the Sync may be better for you)
- Want a small, basic remote that’s easy to hold or fit in a pocket
- Want a slightly longer battery life (about 20 minutes extra on high power)
- Want to be able to leave the remote at home if you only plan to use the app
Where to Buy
If you’re worried about whether or not you’ll like your pick, I’d recommend buying the Chorus from Lovehoney. Lovehoney is one of the only places that lets you return a toy for a refund just because you did not like it.
We have a discount code to help bring the cost down – use PleasureBetter15 at checkout for 15% off your entire order.
Unfortunately, the Sync is not available at Lovehoney. You can purchase the Sync directly through We-Vibe. They will sometimes bundle the Sync with the Tango at a good discount.
