Our Verdict

The Match is an older, mid-budget We-Vibe couples vibrator – it’s been replaced by the We-Vibe Sync Go. The Match is still available until it sells out. However, it’s more expensive than the updated entry-level models (the Sync Go and Sync Lite). 

Unless you prefer the Match’s remote control over the new models’ app control, the updated budget versions are slightly better. However, the We-Vibe Match and the updated budget models significantly underperform in most areas.

If you don’t want to spend on the best models in the current lineup (the We-Vibe Chorus or Sync 2), I recommend choosing the original We-Vibe Sync over the We-Vibe Match. The original Sync is only $20 more, but it’s a much better toy. The Sync is more powerful and has two adjustable hinges to help you find a good fit for your unique body. You can’t change the We-Vibe Match’s shape, so it fits too loosely to stimulate well. 

Because of the increased strength and better fit, the Sync is one of the few hands-free couples’ vibrators I orgasm with during sex. Whereas the Match was more of a fun tease – but could not take me all the way. I’m a fan of thrifty spending. But I’d rather spend $20 for the Sync and actually orgasm hands-free with my partner.

Discount Codes & Deals:

Pros

  • Rumbly vibrations that provide a fun, enjoyable tease
  • Comfortable to wear during sex
  • You can move back and forth through patterns and adjust the intensity of each using the remote control
  • One of the quietest hands-free couples vibrators I’ve tested
  • Won’t be audible from the other side of a closed bedroom door
  • 115 minutes or more of battery life

Cons

  • Vibrations are not strong enough to do more than tease
  • Not adjustable, so you can’t customize the fit to your body – that means it’s harder to get a fit that keeps the external arm in contact with your clit for consistent stimulation
  • Thin internal arm can get pushed to the side during penetration
  • Remote buttons are finicky and difficult to press correctly; Sometimes my button clicks don’t register
  • No app control like the Sync or Chorus so less versatile control and no long-distance play
  • Has a shorter connection range than most (remote typically disconnected around 18 feet away from the Match)
  • More expensive than the updated budget models (the Sync Go and Sync Lite), but not any better than them

Table of Contents

The We-Vibe Match was replaced by the We-Vibe Sync Go. The Match is still available while supplies last but is no longer in production.

My partner and I have enjoyed several We-Vibe toys over the years. But I was most excited to try their couples’ vibrators you can wear during sex.

Multiple We-Vibe Toys and Remotes

I actually purchased the We-Vibe Chorus (the best model) first. But since hands-free stimulation during PIV sex (penis in vagina) is such an enticing deal, I have many friends asking me for recommendations. 

And since the Chorus is a rather pricey option, I wanted to find good choices that were more budget-friendly. Which brought me to the We-Vibe Match! 

We-Vibe Match and We-Vibe Chorus 2nd and 4th Generation Models

It has a pretty similar look to the Chorus but was We-Vibe’s second cheapest model. From cheapest to most expensive, it goes:

  1. We-Vibe Unite (replaced by the newer We-Vibe Sync Lite)
  2. We-Vibe Match (replaced by the newer We-Vibe Sync Go)
  3. We-Vibe Sync (replaced by the newer We-Vibe Sync 2)
  4. We-Vibe Chorus (still the current top model)
We-Vibe Unite, Match, Sync, and Chorus, Lined Up Oldest to Newest for Visual Comparison

The Match is much cheaper than We-Vibe’s current top models (the Chorus and Sync 2), but only $20 cheaper than the original We-Vibe Sync, which is still available and much better. For the cheaper price, the Match trades off some important features of the higher-end models (mainly, the Match is gentler and lacks adjustable hinges).

I wanted to know, could you still have a great experience with this mid-level option? Or is it only worthwhile if you go with one of the higher-end models?

I own and have extensively tested all the available We-Vibe couples vibrators – old and new, cheap and premium. In this We-Vibe Match review, I’ll walk you through how exactly the Match compares and works for me during sex with my partner. I also tried the Match for some discreet play outside the bedroom, so I’ll share my findings on that too.

I’ll help you decide if the Match is the right fit for you.

Review Update Notes

  • February 16, 2024: We bought and tested the newest line of We-Vibe couples vibrators (the Sync 2, the Sync O, the Sync Go, and the Sync Lite) that replace previous versions. And we updated this review to include our experiences with the new products and relevant comparisons. We also lowered the Match’s Fit & Comfort rating and updated that section accordingly, as it shifted around more during this round of testing.

Compare to Other Hands-Free Couples Vibrators

We-Vibe Match Vibrations and Stimulation

The We-Vibe Match is a dual-stimulation remote controlled vibrator that vibrates on your clit and G-spot. 

We-Vibe Match Clit and G-spot Motors

But while there’s a motor in each of the Match’s arms, the G-spot stimulation is pretty faint. The clit motor feels about 5 times as strong as the G-spot motor. So the Match focuses primarily on providing hands-free clit stimulation during sex.

But just how strong of clit-vibes are we talking?

C-shaped couples vibrators like the We-Vibe Match are weaker than big handheld vibrators like the We-Vibe Wand or Magic Wand Rechargeable. These larger vibrators can simply hold a much bigger, stronger motor.

Couples vibrators like the Match also tend to be softer than other wearable vibrators. For instance, egg vibrators and vibrating panties are designed to wear while walking (instead of during sex). They’re designed to be stronger since they’re not getting any help from additional stimulation during sex.

Panty Vibrators and Egg Vibrators as Better for Public Play

The We-Vibe Match is less than half the strength of the Lovense Ferri (my most powerful panty vibrator) or Lush 3 (my strongest egg vibrator).

Comparison of Power Range on Lovense Ferri and Lush vs We-Vibe Match

Compared to other couples vibrators designed to wear during sex, the We-Vibe Match’s vibration power falls in the middle of the pack. 

During solo use, it’s a little bland just because it’s lower-powered. But when I was wearing it with my partner, it was a fun tease and felt good since it’s paired with penetration. 

The Match has the deep rumbly feel that We-Vibe’s motors are famous for, and many people prefer in their vibrators. The vibrations are deeper and feel better than Satisfyer’s cheap couples toys like the Satisfyer Double Joy.

But while the We-Vibe Match feels enjoyable during sex, I can’t orgasm with it.

The only hands-free couples vibrators that stimulate me all the way to orgasm are We-Vibe’s adjustable models:

We-Vibe Sync and Chorus as Strongest Couples Vibrators

A few things help the Chorus, Sync 2, and Sync stimulate better than the We-Vibe Match. First – these two have an impressive range of adjustability. So you’re much more likely to get a good fit that will keep each arm in good contact with your body, stimulating exactly where you need it.

We-Vibe Sync and Chorus Range of Adjustability

And the second difference that might be unnoticeable if you didn’t have all of them in front of you: The Chorus, Sync 2, and Sync have wider, more bulbous G-spot arms. These wider arms stabilize the toys and keep them from shifting out of place during penetration. They also press against my G-spot better, which adds to the overall stimulation I experience.

We-Vibe Match Chorus and Sync Internal Arm Width Comparison

With the Match’s thinner arm, I find that it angles off to the side when my partner is in me. This causes the external vibes to shift off my clit, which makes the stimulation weaker than I prefer.

Oh, and the Sync and Chorus have stronger clit motors

So overall, you’re getting greater contact and stronger motors with these two. So the stimulation during sex is better than you can get with the We-Vibe Match. They take me to the finish line completely hands-free.

If your budget is around the We-Vibe Match’s price point, get the original We-Vibe Sync instead! The Sync is only about $20 more for much better stimulation. For me, $20 is worth it for the ability to enjoy hands-free orgasms during sex with my partner.

We-Vibe Sync Better Stimulation Over We-Vibe Match

We-Vibe Match Comfort and Fit

The We-Vibe Match is pretty comfortable but does not stay in place well for several reasons.

First and most importantly – the Match is flexible but not adjustable. You can’t change its shape entirely to fit your body better. The premium We-Vibe couples toys each have adjustable hinges, allowing you to customize their shape to fit your body better.

We-Vibe Match Flexibility vs We-Vibe Chorus Adjustability

This makes it much more likely that you’ll find a good fit for you. 

The We-Vibe Sync, which is only a few more dollars, has these two different adjustment points. One near the G-spot arm to help you get internal pressure just right and keep it secure to your body. And another on the clit end helps get the clit-vibe placement and pressure right.

We-Vibe Chorus in Several Different Adjustment Positions

The Match’s flexibility relies on a one-size-fits-all model. 

This worked okay for me, in the sense that I feel some stimulation from it, and it doesn’t fall completely out. But it shifts around quite a bit. And the stimulation and pressure are not enough to bring me to orgasm. And since all anatomies differ, there’s a good chance that it won’t naturally fit your particular body just right either.

Here’s an example of someone it didn’t work for:

“We tried it as a couple the first night we received it, and her feedback was it wasn’t proportioned right for her – it went too deep for her G spot and up past her clit on the outside. Once we were having sex it wouldn’t stay in place either which was frustrating for her and she had to try and hold it which defied the point of it.”

Lovehoney customer feedback

Some even mentioned that the We-Vibe Match slipped out for them:

“In the several times we used it during PIV we found it tended to slip out, ruining the moment a little due to having to readjust.”

Lovehoney customer feedback

Of course, there is a chance that you’ll be a naturally good fit with this toy like this couple:

“The levels of the buzzy vibrations were just right to stimulate, and they were directed just where they were needed.”

We-Vibe customer feedback

But getting the perfect fit with the Match is certainly no guarantee. So it’s nice to have the adjustability of the Sync and Chorus.

The second thing that is a little different on the We-Vibe Match vs the Sync and Chorus: The Match’s internal G-spot arm is a bit narrower.

We-Vibe Match Chorus and Sync Internal Arm Width Comparison

It’s hardly noticeable when you’re quickly looking at them. But I found it made a massive difference in the side-to-side security of the toy. 

The Match’s inner arm tends to be pushed slightly askew by a penis. And this makes the clitoral motor sit at an angle instead of pressing firmly against my clit. And since that internal arm is off to the side, it’s not pressing fully on my G-spot either. So both internal and external stimulation becomes a little diminished.

The wider arms on the Sync and Chorus keep them from moving out of position during penetration. So my partner can be in me, and the G-spot arm stays pressed up against my G-spot. And the clit motor stays comfortably vibrating on my clit to transfer all the vibes where I actually want them.

Bottom line? If you skip a couple trips to Starbucks, you can put that extra $20 towards the We-Vibe Sync. This is much more likely to get you a better fit than the Match!

We-Vibe Match Remote Control Features

The main way to control the We-Vibe Match is through the remote. It does not have app-control features like the premium We-Vibe models or even the updated budget models do.

We-Vibe Match Remote vs Chorus and Sync Remotes and App

You can also cycle through patterns by pressing a button on the toy itself, but it’s tricky to do when you’re wearing it, so the remote control is best.

The We-Vibe Match’s remote control capabilities are pretty straightforward. There’s no fancy features or unique control styles like some toys have. For example, the Chorus has a squeeze-activated setting on the remote. And the Lelo Tiani 3 has a SenseMotion feature to control the toy by tilting or shaking the remote.

Lelo Tiani 3 and We-Vibe Match Remote with We-Vibe Chorus Remote

But you might prefer the simplicity of the Match’s remote. Sometimes fancy features can be distracting. And I’m using hands-free couples vibrators to eliminate distractions during sex so I can be hands-on with my partner.

And the Match’s remote is simple – just four buttons. Two to move forward and backward through patterns. So you don’t need to cycle through all the patterns every time as you do with one-button remote controls (like the one that comes with the We-Vibe Unite).

We-Vibe Match Remote Buttons for Power and Patterns

The other two buttons allow you to increase and decrease the vibration power of each pattern. This has become a must-have feature for me with wearable vibrators. I want to be able to make those slight intensity adjustments because it helps to create that slow build. 

I don’t want giant, startling leaps. And I don’t want to cycle through every stronger power level to get back to softer levels. Four buttons are just right.

So the Match is nice if you’re going for useful control features without getting overly complex. It’s also better for those who don’t need custom control abilities available with app-controlled toys or prefer not to have their phone nearby.

I’d recommend the We-Vibe Sync if you want more custom control. It has app and remote control functionality. Or if that squeeze remote of the Chorus sounded fun, check out my full We-Vibe Chorus review here.

I encountered one issue with the We-Vibe Match’s remote though – getting the buttons to respond. This brings me to my next section:

We-Vibe Match Connectivity

Ok here we go – we’re getting into my surprise complaint with this toy. The dang remote! I’m honestly not even sure if it’s a connectivity issue. Or just the fact that the buttons are really hard to push!

With most remotes, I can give a nice, quick “tap” to the button, and the toy leaps to respond. But with the We-Vibe Match, the remote requires more of a press-and-hold process. I really have to button mash to get the Match to adjust its vibrations. 

Close Up of We-Vibe Match Finicky Buttons

It takes some practice to get used to. And even then, it’s just not very reliable.

This can be annoying if you’re planning to give a partner the remote so they can control the Match. When I gave control to my partner, he kept pressing the buttons, but nothing was happening. 

I tried to explain exactly how to press the buttons to him. But you sort of have to be the one wearing the toy to get the button-press system down since it’s so finicky. As a result, he was never sure when his button clicks were actually adjusting the We-Vibe Match’s vibrations.

We-Vibe App Better Than Remote for Parter Control

Others also experienced this button issue, but I guess they were not as bothered as I was:

“It can also take a few moments to figure the remote buttons out, but that wasn’t a big deal.”

Lovehoney customer feedback

And I agree, it’s not a huge deal as long as you control the We-Vibe Match yourself. Of course, I can feel whether my button click changed my vibes. Whereas my partner can’t when he’s got the remote.

If you get that button-press figured out, the toy stays pretty reliably connected. I haven’t had any issues with having to re-connect the toy and remote while playing unless it goes out of range.

I also tested all of my couples vibrators’ connectivity range to see how far I could separate the toy from its remote control or app. 

I could only keep a reliable connection up to 18 feet apart with the We-Vibe Match. This was shorter than any of my other couples vibrators. So it may not work well for across-the-room play. But it’s certainly sufficient for controlling the toy during sex.

Bottom line? The Match’s remote buttons are pretty demanding, which makes it hard to appreciate the otherwise decent connectivity. I prefer the app and remotes that control my Sync and Chorus. Plus, I can separate the app and toy over 100 feet without losing a connection!

We-Vibe Match Noise

An area the We-Vibe Match performs well: Volume! 

The Match is one of the quietest couples’ vibrators. All my wearable toys during sex (except occasionally the Dame Eva) are not audible behind a closed bedroom door. So you’ll be good using them during sex even if you live with other people.

But when I tested my toys’ decibel levels while wearing them, the We-Vibe Match rang in even lower than most.

We-Vibe Match with Decibel Reader

I also tested this toy with my partner by wearing it to different locations and running through the power levels and patterns! He would let me know if he started to hear it. 

With the We-Vibe Match, he could hear it while we were sitting in the same room of our quiet house once the Match reached about 20% power. Your mileage may vary depending on the slight noise differences in your location. For example – air conditioning may or may not drown out the sound based on how close you or others are to the vent.

When we took the Match to a quiet coffee shop, my partner could not hear the toy on any power level or vibration pattern. We were good as long as there was soft music playing or some other ambient sound.

And it was easily inaudible in louder places like a bar or restaurant.

One thing to watch though, is the button click. The Match’s remote clicks can be a little louder than the toy and may be noticeable if you’re in a quiet public place. So be conscious of keeping the button clicks discreet.

We-Vibe Match Battery Life and Charging

The Match has a good battery life compared to most couples vibrators. Although We-Vibe’s updated budget models, the Sync Go and Sync Lite, last longer than the Match.

I tested all of my toys by charging them fully, then setting them to vibrate on high power. I checked on them every ten minutes to see which ones were still vibrating.

Couples Vibrators in a Box with Timer for Battery Test

In my testing, the We-Vibe Match lasted for about 115 minutes on high power! This means you can probably get a little more battery life if you use the lower power levels too.

However, since the Sync and Chorus are a little bit stronger, I’d still recommend these. Even though their battery life was shorter on high, that’s partially because they’re simply cranking out more power. You could get a similar battery length if you kept those toys on medium-high power instead of all the way up.

And the 65 and 85 minute battery lives of the Chorus and Sync are plenty for us during sex. 

I also found the Match’s charging port to be tricky! You have to push the toy down into the port just-so to get it to charge. The first time I tried it, I put it in and thought it was charging, only to find it still dead hours later. So you really have to make sure the light is on to ensure it’s charging.

Since the Sync and Chorus perform better in most other areas too, I would say most people will be happier with one of them than the We-Vibe Match.

We-Vibe Match Materials

The We-Vibe Match is made from body-safe silicone. There are no phthalates, BPA, or latex!

We-Vibe Match Size

The We-Vibe Match is 76.5 mm long, 29.7 mm wide, and 46.4 mm​ tall. 

Or to put it in inches, about 3” long, 1.2” wide, and 1.8” tall.

We-Vibe Match in Hand with Measurements

The Match’s G-spot arm is slimmer than the Sync’s and Chorus’, making the We-Vibe Match shift out of place more easily during sex. 

We-Vibe Match Connection Distance

In my testing, the Match stayed connected up to 18 feet away from the remote control. But separating the remote and toy any further lead to disconnections.

This distance may also be smaller depending on your environment and obstructions.

Waterproof Rating

The We-Vibe Match is 100% waterproof! So you can take it in the tub, shower, or pool! It’s also easy to clean since you can completely submerge it while cleaning with soap and water.

Packaging

I’m always a fan of the colors on We-Vibe’s packaging. The Match’s box was just as lovely as ever in a purple and teal gradient.

It also comes with a sample of We-Vibe’s lube and a silky white storage bag!

We-Vibe Match Review Results

The We-Vibe Match is still a pretty pricey couples’ toy for being one of We-Vibe’s weaker-performing models. The original We-Vibe Sync is a much better option at a similar price.

The main issues I had with the We-Vibe Match were:

  1. It did not have any adjustability to help me customize the fit. As a result, the external arm had difficulty remaining in contact with my clit, so stimulation was weaker.
  2. The motors are also less powerful than the Sync or Chorus – the vibes feel good, but don’t take me all the way like the Chorus and Sync do.
  3. The remote was also pretty finicky, and since it’s not app-controlled, you don’t have other options.

If you’re trying to stay in the We-Vibe Match’s price range, I recommend spending just $20 more for the We-Vibe Sync instead

We-Vibe Sync as Better Than We-Vibe Match

This couples vibrator is almost identical to the Match but has many small upgrades that make a huge difference. The Sync has two adjustable hinges to help you get a good fit for your unique body. As a result, I get a fit that remains securely where I need it. 

The Sync’s improved fit and stronger motors make it one of the only two toys I can orgasm with hands-free during sex (the other is the Chorus). 

The Sync has both a remote to control it and app-control capabilities. So it also opens up a whole world of more custom control. And you can play with a long-distance partner through the We-Vibe app. 

We-Vibe Sync with Remote and App

You can read my full review of the We-Vibe Sync to hear more about why I think it’s one of the best couples’ vibrators. I also review the newer We-Vibe Sync 2 here – but the old one is comparable and cheaper.

And if you simply want the best of the best in any price range, you can read more about the We-Vibe Chorus here.

We-Vibe Match Alternatives

We-Vibe Chorus or Sync

The Chorus and Sync are two of We-Vibe’s premium couples vibrators. They’re two of the few I orgasm with during sex because they are stronger and adjustable – so I can customize them to fit my body best.

Sync and Chorus with Charging Ports and Covers

I 100% recommend the Sync over the We-Vibe Match since it’s so close in price with several significant improvements. But if you’re curious about what additional features the Chorus has since it’s the top model, you can check out my We-Vibe Sync vs Chorus comparison guide to help you make your decision!

Handheld Couples Vibrators

Hands-free stimulation is a great option to enhance PIV sex and free your hands to be all over your partner! 

But I still use handheld toys more often to get the clitoral stimulation I need during sex. While they’re not as effortless as hands-free couples vibrators, they’re more versatile.

Handheld Vibrators vs We-Vibe Match

Even though it requires the attendance of one of your hands, you can quickly adjust the toy as needed. You can move it wherever you want stimulation at that moment – direct or indirect. And you can leverage it to get the exact amount of pressure you’re looking for.

If you don’t already have a good handheld vibrator to use during sex, I’d begin there.

The key to a toy that doesn’t get in the way during sex is its shape. Here are a few of my favorites and what I find they excel at:

Lelo Mona 2

The Lelo Mona 2 is marketed as a G-spot vibrator. But I love using toys shaped like this for clitoral stimulation. The long, curved shape and excellent handle make it easy to keep my hands out of the way, and leverage the toy to press perfectly where I want it. 

Lelo Mona 2 with Curved Handle and Small Tip

And the pointed tip slides very easily between my legs. Since it’s tapered, I find that this one can easily stimulate me clitorally even while my partner and I face each other during sex.

You can read my full Lelo Mona 2 review here for more info

Lovense Ambi 

I prefer the Lelo Mona 2 personally, but the Lovense Ambi is a little cheaper than the Mona 2 and still works well. 

Lovense Ambi on Table

The Ambi is a small golf-club-shaped vibrator that can fit in tight places. This toy works great for me in positions where my partner is behind me. 

Especially if I’m laying face-down on the bed. Because it’s tiny enough that the angle I hold the toy at is not restricted by hitting the bed. This is more difficult with the longer handle of the Mona. But the Ambi’s short handle means you have to reach a little further down there.

Lovense Ambi Against Body vs Lelo Mona Against Body

I love the blunt tip of the Ambi and the “right angle” that causes it to slide between my legs. This gives me great leverage to press the toy where I want, even though the handle is shorter.

Lovense Ambi Angle

Alternatively, if you prefer more rumbly vibrations consider the We-Vibe Tango X bullet vibrator.

We-Vibe Match FAQ

How to Use the We-Vibe Match 

Apply water-based lube to the smaller G-spot arm and slide the toy into your vagina. The larger vibrating end of the toy will rest up against the clit.

The inner arm is thin enough that most people can have additional penetration from a partner’s penis or a dildo while wearing the Match. You can wear this toy during penetration and control it through the remote control! It will add mostly clitoral stimulation, but you get some soft G-spot stimulation too.

Where to Buy We-Vibe Match 

If you buy the We-Vibe Match, I recommend purchasing it directly through We-Vibe. They have 100 day money-back guarantee, which very few shops offer – they’ll refund you if you don’t enjoy the Match.

Since the We-Vibe Match is no longer in production, few other shops still sell it. But there are some like SheVibe. However, since the We-Vibe Match can be hit or miss since it’s a one-size-fits-all model, having the option to return it if it doesn’t work for you is important.
