Our Verdict

The We-Vibe Sync 2 is nearly the same as the original We-Vibe Sync. The original is no longer in production, but We-Vibe is selling their remaining stock at a discount. While supplies last, it can be worthwhile. 

Here’s the most important thing to know: I can orgasm during sex just as easily with the original We-Vibe Sync and Sync 2. 

Both versions’ clitoral vibrations are equally powerful. The Sync 2’s G-spot vibrations are minimally more powerful, but hardly a noticeable difference.

The Sync 2’s G-spot arm is more bulbous than the original Sync’s. This puts slightly better pressure on my G-spot, but it’s a minimal improvement. On the other hand, the original Sync has two hinges (like the We-Vibe Chorus), whereas the new Sync 2 only has one hinge. 

This may enable you to get a slightly better fit with the original Sync. But in my experience, they both feel about the same in the end.

The Sync 2’s remote control is better than the original Sync’s, which had some responsiveness issues. So the new model’s reliable remote control can limit distractions during sex.

Performance During Sex

The We-Vibe Sync 2 and original We-Vibe Sync have similarly excellent performance during sex. Along with the Chorus, both versions of the Sync are much better than competing couples vibrators like the Lelo Tiani or Dame Eva.

I can orgasm just as easily and reliably with both We-Vibe Sync versions. The original and Sync 2 reach the same top vibration strength in the clit arm. The Sync 2’s internal arm has slightly more power than the Sync 1’s, though it’s hardly noticeable.

There are two main changes between the original and Sync 2 that affect their stimulation during sex:

  1. The original Sync has two adjustable hinges, whereas the new We-Vibe Sync 2 has just one. So you may get a more ideal fit for your body with the original.
  2. The We-Vibe Sync 2’s G-spot arm is thicker and more bulbous, which presses better on my G-spot during sex.

The reduced stimulation from the Sync 1’s gentler, thinner G-spot arm essentially cancels out the benefit from its additional hinge. Ultimately, I get an equally secure and stimulating fit with both versions of the We-Vibe Sync.

We-Vibe Sync Original vs We-Vibe Sync 2

The We-Vibe Sync 2’s remote is an improvement over the original Sync’s. The original Sync’s vibrations do not always change when I click the remote control’s buttons, which can be distracting during sex. The Sync 2’s remote control has excellent responsiveness.

Vibration Power and Stimulation

The We-Vibe Sync 2 and the original We-Vibe Sync provide nearly identical stimulation. These are two of the three couples’ vibrators that I most easily orgasm with during sex (the other is the We-Vibe Chorus).

They both have internal and external vibrating motors providing dual-stimulation. I find them more stimulating than premium options that only stimulate clitorally, like the We-Vibe Sync O

The Sync and Sync 2’s clitoral motors are the same strength. The Sync 2’s G-spot arm is about 33% more powerful. However, I consider both toys’ internal arms gentle. And the increased strength is subtle enough that it doesn’t impact the stimulation much.

We-Vibe Sync and Sync 2 Motor Placement

Both toys have a bulbous internal arm that presses into my G-spot at an angle that penetration from a penis or dildo has trouble reaching. So, even though the internal vibrations are soft, they really enhance the experience as my partner’s thrusts push them into my G-spot. 

The We-Vibe Sync 2’s bulbous shape is more pronounced, so I get this stimulating G-spot pressure without adjusting its shape as much. The original Sync’s G-spot arm was thinner and didn’t naturally press on my G-spot as well, but I could adjust it more to achieve the same result.

Ultimately, I find the We-Vibe Sync and Sync 2 equally stimulating.

Both the Sync 2 and original Sync are adjustable, which is essential for finding a good fit so that the vibrations stay where you need them. They are far more stimulating than merely flexible models like the We-Vibe Sync Go and Sync Lite that shift off my clit.

Fit and Comfort

The We-Vibe Sync 2 and original We-Vibe Sync are both very comfortable. I can find a secure and equally stimulating fit with each, though the original Sync has greater adjustability than the Sync 2.

The original We-Vibe Sync and Sync 2 each have an adjustable hinge at the base of the clitoral arm, so you can change their shape to fit your body better. As a result, they fit far more securely and stay in contact with my clit better than merely flexible models. I can only orgasm with adjustable models like the Sync 1 and 2.

The original Sync has a second adjustable hinge for the internal arm that the Sync 2 lacks, so it is more adjustable. 

However, the original Sync’s G-spot arm is less bulbous than the Sync 2’s. It doesn’t naturally press on my G-spot as well. So I need to adjust it more to get the same fit that the Sync 2’s more accentuated G-spot arm naturally provides. In the end, it’s the same result.

They stay in best during sex but can be worn out of the bedroom while walking around if you wear tight-fitting underwear to keep them secure.

App Control: Close Range Features

The original We-Vibe Sync and We-Vibe Sync 2 use the same app, so the close-range control experience is nearly identical. There is only one notable difference:

A glitch in the app is currently affecting the Sync 2 but not the original Sync. When controlling the Sync 2 through the We-Vibe app, you can only reach about 75% of its vibration strength. You can get more powerful vibrations by controlling the Sync 2 with the remote control or the button on its clitoral arm.

Pairing We-Vibe Sync 2 with Remote
You can only reach the highest power on the Sync 2 with the remote or on-toy button currently due to a glitch in the app

We have emailed with We-Vibe, and they confirmed they’re aware of the glitch affecting the Sync 2 and are working on a fix. We will update this article when they resolve the issue. 

Because apps can occasionally be glitchy, I prefer app-controlled couples vibrators like the Sync and Sync 2 that also have a physical remote. You can use the remote if the app is distracting.

Besides the bug mentioned above, there are no differences. If you’re already familiar with the We-Vibe app, skip to the Remote Control Features section.

The We-Vibe app provides a decent variety of ways to control the Sync 2 or Sync.

You can select from predesigned patterns and adjust the vibration power using Single Vibe and Multi Vibe modes. In Single Vibe mode, you choose a vibration pattern, then raise and lower the onscreen dot to adjust the intensity. You can control the clit and G-spot motors separately.

We-Vibe Sync 2 Single Vibe and Pattern Options

From the Multi Vibe screen, you can select up to four vibration patterns (one for each corner) and quickly switch between them. You can also set each motor to a different pattern. You increase the power by moving the control dots outward and decrease it by moving them inward.

You can create and save your own patterns, but this feature is clunky in We-Vibe’s app. You have to draw out the pattern before you feel it. So it’s hard to design something you know you’ll like. I stick to using the preset patterns. 

We-Vibe Sync 2 Touch Mode

Both the Sync 2 and Sync have Touch Mode, which makes the vibrations stronger as you move your fingers faster on the screen. 

We-Vibe Sync 2 Beat Mode

Beat Mode syncs your vibrations with the music you have saved on your phone. Ambient Mode syncs your vibes with the sounds around you that your phone’s mic picks up on. In these modes, you can set each motor separately to respond to bass, midrange, or treble. And you can adjust the sensitivity.

Once We-Vibe fixes the Sync 2’s glitch with the app, the features will be identical for both toys.

App Control: Long-Distance Features

The original We-Vibe Sync and We-Vibe Sync 2 use the same app for long-distance control, so my experience is the same with both couples vibrators.

You can message, video call, and share control of either Sync with a partner anywhere in the world. Your partner’s control options include the same Single Vibe, Multi Vibe, and Touch modes you use during ordinary Bluetooth (nearby) control. These control panels provide good options and visuals so your partner can effectively control your vibrations.

If you’d rather see your partner more clearly, you can minimize the control panel so the video feed is clear. You can also mute your mic and turn off your camera if that makes you more comfortable. 

It’s easy to miss a long-distance partner’s request to control your Sync because the app does not notify you. You must go to the long-distance screen in the We-Vibe app to see a request. So you just have to coordinate outside the app first to get connected. I simply text my partner to let him know I’m about to share control.

Remote Control Features

The We-Vibe Sync 2’s remote control is sleeker and works better than the original We-Vibe Sync’s remote. 

We-Vibe Sync and Sync 2 Remotes

They are a similar size, but the Sync 2’s is coated in comfortable, silky silicone instead of the hard, slippery plastic of the original Sync’s remote. But more importantly, the Sync 2’s buttons are more responsive. I often had to click the original Sync’s buttons multiple times before the toy responded, which was frustrating. I don’t experience this issue with the new remote control.

We-Vibe Old and New Remote Functions

The functionality is the same. Both have separate buttons to increase or decrease power. And two more buttons allow you to move forward and backward through patterns. The control is much better than remotes that require you to cycle through power levels or patterns. The Sync 2’s remote has a fifth button to reconnect it with the toy if necessary.

They both take one CR 2032 battery, but it’s easier to get to the battery of the Sync 2’s remote.

Connectivity

The We-Vibe Sync 2 has a little better connectivity than the original We-Vibe Sync. 

The main difference is that the original Sync’s remote control buttons have some responsiveness issues. Sometimes, when you press a button, nothing happens. This is primarily an issue when a partner controls your toy because they can’t tell whether their button click had an effect on your toy.

Other than this, both have great connectivity with the app and remote. Connecting to the We-Vibe app is easy – the app walks you through the steps each time, and I can reliably connect the Sync or Sync 2. I rarely have to troubleshoot.

We-Vibe Sync 2 App Pairing Instructions
Pairing the We-Vibe Sync and Sync 2 with the app is easy, and instructions are provided each time

Once connected, the Sync or Sync 2 stays connected reliably. I can regularly let the app or remote sit inactive for 30 minutes without experiencing a disconnect. I can lock my phone screen or use other apps in between.

In long-distance mode, whoever has the vibrator will connect their phone to the Sync (or Sync 2) using Bluetooth – this is the same method as nearby control, so the connectivity is the same. Then, your long-distance partner’s phone will communicate with yours using Wifi or cell data. So, as long as both partners’ internet or cell data is good, the long-distance connection is good.

I also tested how far I could separate the Sync and Sync 2 from the connected phone and remote control.

In my tests, the Sync 2 could be separated farther from its remote. But the original Sync could be separated farther from the connected phone. 

I separated the Sync 2 50 feet from the app and 38 from the remote before they disconnected. In contrast, I separated the original Sync around 200 feet from the phone before it disconnected. But it could only be 22 feet from its physical remote.

I ran my test outside with no buildings or large objects in between, so your own experience will likely differ depending on your environment. I suspect most people will not get the 200-foot separation I achieved with the original Sync. The purpose was to test which toy generally can be separated farther before disconnecting.

When the Sync 2 or original Sync come back within range, they usually re-pair automatically.

Noise

Both are discreet, but the We-Vibe Sync 2 is quieter than the original We-Vibe Sync. It’s my quietest couple’s vibrator for the high power it achieves.

While worn, the Sync 2 reaches just 40 decibels (dB) on high, and the original Sync reaches 47 dB. When I was writing my We-Vibe Sync 2 review, I had the Sync 2 vibrating in my hand on its top strength. My partner didn’t notice the sound from just a few feet away in our quiet home office until I pointed it out to him. Even then, he could hardly hear it on its highest power.

Ultimately, neither can be heard behind a closed bedroom door. So you can discreetly use either option during sex. 

If you want the quietest option, the Sync 2 is best.

Battery Life and Charging

The original We-Vibe Sync has a longer battery life than the We-Vibe Sync 2. I test all my couples vibrators by fully charging them and running them on their maximum power until they die.

The original Sync lasted 85 minutes compared to the Sync 2’s 63 minutes.

Either one offers plenty of runtime to enjoy during sex. Other types of remote control vibrators, like egg vibrators or vibrating panties, are better for play outside the bedroom since they typically last longer.

Comparison Results

We-Vibe Sync vs Sync 2

The We-Vibe Sync 2 and We-Vibe Sync perform remarkably similarly, though the Sync 2 has an updated remote that works much better.

The original Sync has one more adjustable arm than the Sync 2, providing a broader range of customization. However, its less bulbous internal arm doesn’t give the natural G-spot pressure I get from the Sync 2. I have to adjust the original more to get an equally stimulating fit.

In the end, I orgasm just as easily with both versions of the Sync. Alongside the We-Vibe Chorus, they’re the most stimulating couples vibrators I’ve tested.

The Sync 2’s remote control is more responsive, limiting distractions during sex. Many people will benefit from that change alone. If you’d rather save money, you can still buy the original Sync until We-Vibe sells out of their remaining inventory.

Where to Buy [With Refunds and Happiness Guarantees]

I recommend buying the We-Vibe Sync 2 or Sync through Lovehoney or We-Vibe. These are the only two shops I know that let you return the toy for a full refund just because you did not like it.

You can also use the discount code PleasureBetter15 during checkout at Lovehoney for 15% off your entire order.

Unfortunately, Lovehoney no longer sells the original Sync since it’s discontinued. But We-Vibe is still selling their remaining inventory.
