Symphony Wand Massager Review
By Carnal Queen.
A little while ago I reviewed the Adrien Lastic Bonnie and Clyde rabbit vibrator. As you may remember, I loved the look and feel of the blazing pink bunny, but its personality left me feeling a little let down. I could see its potential, but it just didn’t do it for me in the vibration department. Not at all put off, I was still convinced that there was something out there from Adrien Lastic that I would love – and they kindly sent the Symphony wand for me to get myself acquainted with, in the hope that it delivered what I hoped it could.
The Symphony arrives in a very similar style to the Bonnie and Clyde, it’s tasteful and modern and it does the job nicely. Inside the box are your shiny new vibrator, a charging cable, and white branded storage bag. The first thing that struck me is the size of the toy … it’s tiny! It’s just 21cm long and weighs only 114g. I’d seen it at the ETO show back in June, but it was up on a shelf and I’m a short-arse and couldn’t reach it, so this was my first time of seeing a Symphony up close and personal.
It’s marketed as a powerful wand massager, which I want to mention straight off the bat. It’s a wand vibrator in the sense that it has a wand shape, and it is indeed a vibrator, but that’s where the similarities start and finish. Don’t go thinking that it’ll sit alongside the Doxy or Hitachi magic wand massager and hold its own, because it won’t. That is absolutely not a negative, by the way.
The Symphony is a really good-looking sex toy too. Odd thing to say, but it’s curvaceous, eye-catching and the finish on the ABS handle is lovely, it literally sparkles in the light. Annoyingly it proved virtually impossible to pick up on camera, so you’ll have to take my word for it, but it’s shimmery, glitzy and just gorgeous. The handle has quite an extreme undulation to it, which is unusual but very clever. It sits in your hand like it was custom-made just for you, whichever way you choose to position it. It’s perfectly weighted, and causes no tiredness from holding it in use.
It’s USB rechargeable, with the supplied cable, and a 90 minute charge will give you around 40 minutes of play time. The little red light comes on when it’s recharging, and goes off when it’s reached full power capacity, so you know as soon as you’re good to go. The Symphony is only splashproof and not fully waterproof, and it has ten modes of vibration – 3 constant speeds and 7 patterns.
The vibrations this little massage wand vibrator kicks out are nothing short of surprising. Considering the size of it, I wasn’t expecting to find deep, rumbly vibrations, but find them I did. I mean, it’s not the most powerful wand massager on the planet, and the vibrations won’t rattle the teeth out of your skull, but they’re very satisfying and have quite a delicious low frequency to them. They stimulate the body very well, carrying deep into the tissues, and not just tickling the surface. I’ll admit to being pretty damn shocked. Used for clitoral stimulation, orgasms come easy to me with the Symphony.
The silicone head on this little Symphony massage wand is very unique. Petite in size and form, you’re not going to be able to find any massage wand attachments that fit on it, but that’s ok, because that’s not where the strengths of this sex toy lie. The flexibility of it is unlike anything else I’ve ever tried. It effortlessly twists and turns under pressure as you press the head against your body. This little feature alone makes the Symphony one of the best cordless massager wands! It conforms to every curve and swell your body has, it’s fantastic!
I could sit for hours just letting the Symphony massage my neck and my back. The handle makes it easy to hold and use, and the vibrations delve deep and relax my muscles and soothe away any aches and pains. It’s really quiet in use too, so it’s easy to sit and enjoy this massaging wand whist you’re watching TV or having a chat. The low volume makes it a great choice for people who need discretion in their sex toys too, where perhaps a noisy mains-powered alternative wouldn’t be suitable.
I do wish the battery offered more in terms of longevity. 40 minutes is generally enough for a good session with the Symphony, but I’m finding that it really doesn’t hold its charge all that well. On a couple of occasions I’ve ran the mini wand massager for about 20 minutes, cleaned it and put it away, only to find it totally flat a couple of days later. I mostly re-charge my rechargeable toys after use, so they’re ready to go whenever I want them next, but the Symphony isn’t really a candidate for that … well it is, but I’ll just have to make sure I use it every couple of days! It’s a hard life.
Another model improvement I’d like to see by Adrien Lastic is to make the Symphony totally waterproof. It makes cleaning easier, obviously, but also means you can brighten up boring baths and showers. A trick I feel has totally been missed with the Symphony. I’d love to be able to give myself a lazy back massage whilst lounging in the bath. The Swan Wand is still holding that job currently.
I’m pretty smitten. I can see me reaching for this little magic massager wand time and time again. My sex toy collection is extensive, and you can always tell which ones are the big hits by where they end up in the house. If you find yourself in the loft, you’ve let me down … the Symphony is going to live out its days right next to the bed!
Adrien Lastic kindly sent me the Symphony personal wand massager for free, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. So a huge thanks goes out to them.
