Review: Vibease Wearable Vibrator

VibeaseMy partner and I are currently long-distance, so we’re always on the look out for new ways to keep that spark going whilst we’re apart. We don’t send photos, but we do engage in a lot of sexting and the occasional mutual masturbation over FaceTime. We don’t want these things to become routine and expected, as this could get boring, so we’ve been looking to explore some app-controlled vibrators, so he feels like he’s involved in my orgasms, even when he’s not here.

The Vibease arrived quickly and discreetly as advertised, in no-frills packaging. A simple pink and turquoise box with a cardboard sleeve featuring the brand name and some product information on the back. Inside the box, I found the Vibease nestled within some velvet lining and a separate section of the box housed the user manual and two different sized charging cables. I was a little bit disappointed that it didn’t offer a storage pouch as its a luxury product with a matching price tag, so I’d expect one to be included.

The Vibease is made from silicone, which is a non-toxic, non-porous, hypoallergenic material that is free from latex and phthalates. It’s completely body-safe and odourless. The silicone feels extremely smooth to the touch and it has minimal drag to it, so lubricant isn’t essential for comfortable use although I like to use a small amount if I’m going to be using it for longer than five-ten minutes. As this toy is made from silicone, only water-based lubricants should be used to avoid degrading the finish. It’s water-resistant/splashproof but it’s not submersible, so don’t take it into the bath or shower. It can be washed in soapy water for cleaning purposes, but needs to be left to dry completely before being used or charged.

VibeaseTo get started, the Vibease needs a full charge. Plug the USB into the charging port of your choice and the jack into the base of the toy. You can use either charger depending on the amount of cable you need, it makes no difference. The white light will flash to indicate that the toy is charging and this changes to blue once the battery is fully charged. The initial charge takes around three hours and charges after that take around two.

It’s operated via a two-button interface, a power button and a button that has a wave-like imprint. To turn on/off, simply press and hold the power button for two seconds. The light will blink three times and then the device will vibrate for half a second to indicate it’s ready for use. To change between the five available modes of vibration press the wave button. This function does not work when the vibrator is connected to the app (but more on that later).

It has a low and medium speed, which are followed by three patterns. I would personally have liked a third speed for some more intense vibrations, but I can orgasm with the medium speed if given 15 minutes or so. I would rate the medium intensity as 6.5/10, which is pretty good considering the amount of power that I like. I think that it would be powerful enough for many people, but if you’re like me, you might find yourself wanting to push the button for a power increase that isn’t available. I think the vibrations are on the buzzy end of the spectrum, although they’re not the awful de-sensisting/numbing type that I detest.  I will admit that I like the first pattern as it’s roller coaster style, which is a setting that I enjoy and will happily use often.

The Vibease sits against the vulva with the ‘hooked’ part sitting over the clitoris. It has an interesting shape, but I found that it might be even more flattering to my anatomy than a pebble shape, which is usually my go-to for clitoral toys. It can be placed in underwear, although I’ve found the underwear needs to be tight-fitting to keep the vibrator in place or have that little pocket of extra lining in the crotch to keep it safe and secure. If you don’t wish to wear the vibrator on every occasion, then you (or your partner) can hold it in place like a regular clitoral vibrator.

VibeaseThe Vibease is pretty quiet, especially when it’s placed inside underwear. The patterns are louder than the constant vibrations, but they’re still on the quieter scale. I found it only really makes a noticeable amount of noise when it’s laying on a surface, which it won’t be during use, so I’d feel comfortable recommending this to people who need discretion or wish to use this in public.

As I mentioned at the start of this review, this vibrator can be controlled via app. It’s compatible with Apple and Android models that support Bluetooth 4.0. Find the app ‘Vibease Chat’ in the App Store and download it to get started. Once you’ve opened the app, you make a profile which consists of your gender, username and a photo if you choose. The photo will not be visible to anyone other than your trusted partner/partners, so there’s no privacy worries there. If you have concerns about people getting hold of your phone, then there’s an option to add a passcode which you’ll have to enter every time you open the app.

VibeaseTo connect the app to the device press and hold the power button for five seconds until the light indicator shows the blinking blue light. Once you’re in, make sure your partner has your username because you can then chat away on the messenger feature, send each photos and allow them to control the vibrator from their phone, regardless of their location. I really like that there’s an option to make eleven of your own pulsations as this allows for a different experience every time you use the toy. Unfortunately, your partner won’t know what it feels like or be able to tell if you’re enjoying it without communicating via the chat feature.

In our experience, we’ve found the app easy to use, although it has a couple of teething issues. The app seems to disconnect from the vibrator fairly easily, but we can’t decipher what is causing this. I also had difficulty with the initial connection, despite following the instructions to the letter. I think most apps and technology have glitches from time to time, so I won’t know for sure until we’ve used this for several months whether it’s a permanent issue or a temporary one. When it does connect and stay connected, we really enjoy using the app together as it’s a great way for him to feel dominant when he’s not around.

I can also use the app on my own as there’s an option to create your own fantasy, through music, podcasts, audiobooks and even your own voice. You can buy credits through the app for the paid audiobooks but many are free. It comes with three free audios to get you started although I didn’t find these erotic. I don’t know many people who are turned on by the sound of peaceful beach waves. I do however find the sound of rain relaxing, so the ‘fun in the rain’ audio was great for me to de-tense with prior to listening to something a little sexier. The vibrator works in accordance to the audio you’re listening to, vibrating gently when the voice is soft and full pace when the tone is harsher.

VibeaseOverall, I think the Vibease is better than I thought it would be. I don’t have tons of experience with app-controlled toys, but out of the few I have tried, this is definitely one of the better ones. If I could change anything to make this a perfect scorer, I’d add a third, rumbly speed and take away one of the patterns (as you can make your own anyway, so this wouldn’t be a loss) and I’d also fix the small connection problems with the app.

I received the Vibease ($119/£89.41) in exchange for my honest review. Thank you! Affiliate links have been used within this post.
