Another sex toy, another quest. This time I continue on my quest to find a bullet vibrator that offers the intensity and vibration frequency that is ideal for me, while being good quality so that it’ll last longer than 6 months. This makes my 9th bullet vibe (the kind with the remote handpack) and my 5th in the “higher quality” style.

The higher quality bullet vibes have these features:

  • Little plastic/rubber nubs where the wire goes into the handpack, the bullet or both. This protects and keeps the wire from being pulled away from the contacts inside
  • Multi-functions – while I don’t give a hang about pulsing functions, some do
  • An overall better design – lights on the handpack, interesting colors, etc. It’s not a plain silver bullet and generic handpack.

Usually I have found that the higher quality bullets lack one of two very important things (for me): Intensity of the power of vibrations, or the proper vibration frequency/pitch. Many women, myself included, will prefer the lower pitch vibrations as opposed to the higher pitch buzzy vibes. The Harmony bullet nails it on the vibration pitch, and with fresh batteries has the power I need. Yes, fresh batteries. The handpack takes 2 AAA batteries and really eats them up quickly.

The Harmony Bullet Vibrator is named as such just as a marketing gimmick. There’s nothing special about it.  The box calls it a “Balanced Bullet” but again it just seems to be a marketing term. They offer a black and a white one, the packaging calls them ying and yang but it’s not like there’s any difference between the two other than color. The control is a push-button style of sorts, as opposed to a slider or a wheel. There’s 4 levels of power with the lowest being very mild. No pulsing functions. I don’t like the lights, as it tends to light up the entire handpack (at least for the white one, I dont know what the black one is like). I also don’t like that it takes AAA batteries, as I don’t keep many on hand. It’s all one color, smooth/shiny plastic. I’ll update in a few months if this holds up better than all the “silver” tone bullets I’ve owned which tend to have the silver rub/chip off after some months of use.

Despite the lights (which I plan to cover with white electrical tape) and the use of AAA batteries, I quite like this one. It is not THE most powerful bullet that I own, but it’s got enough oomph to matter to me. Simple and not tacky. Added bonus of the rubber wire-keepers means it’ll hopefully last longer.

Thanks to Edenfantasys.com for providing this for me to review!

    I am such a fan of the bullets!

    If you’re having problems with your bullets lasting you should check out ones that actually have a jack at the end of the wire that plugs into the battery pack. That way you can just replace the bullet part when it stops working which is wicked way cheaper than replacing the whole thing.

    ~ I’ve tried, but the couple bullet vibes like that weren’t strong enough for me or weren’t the right kind of vibration pitch.

    Oooh. I love things that light up. They just make me very happy to own.

    I’d love to know which bullet *is* your favourite! I like a little “oomph” as well. :)
