My thoughts on the We-Vibe Tango X bullet vibrator

TLDR: We-Vibe Tango X is a good improvement on the original. With its stylish design, strong deep vibrations, light weight, and travel lock, it is one of my favorite toys for travel. It is also a very handy sex aid. I do recommend it. Although it is a bit pricier than the average bullet vibes, I think it is worth every cent.

In this We-Vibe Tango X review

Over the years, I have tested more than 20 bullet vibrators, and We-Vibe Tango X is one of the best. In this review, I’ll go over how it feels, why it is one of my favorite toys, how it compares to the other bullets I have tested and some personal tips on how to use the We-Vibe Tango X for maximum pleasure.

I’ll also cover how the Tango X compares to the original Tango and to the Touch X (another popular bullet by We-Vibe). And I have analyzed and commented on some negative user reviews from Amazon and their main issues.

But before we begin, these are my recommendations on who We-Vibe Tango X is for.

I would recommend the We-Vibe Tango X to:

  • People looking for a compact vibe that doesn’t sacrifice power or quality
  • Folks who prefer pinpoint clitoral stimulation
  • Couples wanting an unobtrusive vibe for partnered play
  • Anyone who values premium build and materials
  • Travelers looking for a petite but potent toy
  • Original Tango devotees, ready for an upgrade (but keep in mind Tango X is slightly weaker than the OG)

This may not be the best match for:

  • Those who strongly prefer broad stimulation
  • Folks on a tighter budget
  • People used the original Tango at the max speed (better check the Touch X or look for a mini wand)

How does We-Vibe Tango X feel?

From the moment I picked up the We-Vibe Tango X, I could tell it was an entirely new, elevated experience. The addition of the silky silicone handle is a really thoughtful idea. I no longer lost my grip as my fingers buzzed numb like with the original’s slick plastic. I find myself reaching for the Tango X constantly now—it’s become my go-to for solo sessions and an easy, unobtrusive addition to partner play.

The redesigned lipstick tip still gives that incredible pinpoint stimulation but feels even smoother gliding across the skin. And the newly rounded edges throughout make the whole unit more ergonomic to hold. Cycling through the 8 vibration speeds and 7 patterns is a breeze with the new 3-button interface. Having a dedicated button to go up in intensity, down in intensity, and switch patterns is so much more intuitive than the original’s single button.

Solo Session

Last night, I settled in for some much-needed self-care time with my Tango X. I started off by teasing myself with the lowest constant setting, running the silky smooth tip along my inner thighs and over my underwear. The rumbly vibrations were already stirring up excitement, even in the gentlest mode.

As I slipped out of my panties and glided the Tango X through my folds, I couldn’t help but gasp at the delicious precision. Clicking up through the intensities, I soon found that sweet spot right around level 4 or 5 that had me squirming with pleasure. The vibrations felt like they were resonating deep within me, coaxing out an intense, full-bodied orgasm that left me breathless and grinning.

What I love about the We-Vibe Tango X for solo sessions is how intuitive and effortless it is to find the perfect rhythm. The easy controls let me focus on the sensations while the ergonomic shape nestles comfortably in my palm. It’s become an indispensable tool for when I need a guaranteed, satisfying release.

Couple’s Play

My partner and I have been having a blast incorporating the Tango X into our bedroom adventures. Just last weekend, we were engaging in some sensual foreplay, and I handed him the bullet to tease me with. The compact size made it easy for him to trail the vibrations all over my body, amping up the anticipation until I was practically begging for more direct stimulation.

When he finally pressed the Tango X against my clit, I nearly saw stars. He experimented with different pressures and angles, reading my body’s responses to find what made me writhe with pleasure. The precise tip was perfect for targeted stimulation, while the wider, flatter side delivered mind-blowing all-over sensations.

As we shifted into intercourse, the Tango X’s petite profile made it a breeze to keep the vibrations right where I needed them. The deep rumbles took everything to the next level, and soon, we were both swept up in an incredibly powerful, satisfying finale.

We loved how seamlessly the Tango X integrated into our couple’s play. It felt like a natural extension of our hands and bodies, never clunky or disruptive. Plus, the whisper-quiet motor meant we could focus entirely on each other without worrying about distracting buzzing. It’s safe to say the We-Vibe Tango X has earned a permanent spot in our toybox!

How We-Vibe Tango X performs

Now, let’s see how Tango X performs in the most important categories. I took a lot of photos and videos during the testing process.

Vibration Power & Intensity Range: 9/10

The We-Vibe Tango X packs an impressive amount of power for its size. The 8 intensity levels provide a great range, from a gentle purr to a thunderous rumble. While not the most powerful vibe out there, it’s a clear step up from the original Tango and holds its own against popular competitors like the Le Wand Bullet.

In this table, you can see the intensity range of the most popular bullet vibrators compared to the Tango X. The Acceleration and velocity measure the perceived intensity, and the displacement measures the depth of the vibration. So, a larger number feels deeper or rumblier, and smaller numbers are buzzier. I have multiplied the Acceleration and velocity in an overall Intensity factor score so you can have a broad idea of how strong each toy is at its minimum and maximum levels. Lower numbers in the minimum are better, and higher numbers are better for the maximum. You can see how broad the We-Vibe Tango X range is compared to the other bullets.

ModelAcceleration (Intensity)Velocity (Speed)Displacement (Depth)Intensity Factor

Lovehoney Juno Egg0.1130.9110.010.030.09143
Lelo Lyla 2111712190.050.09132323

“I was genuinely surprised by the power packed into such a tiny toy. On the highest setting, it almost feels like a mini-wand, but I love that I can also dial it back for a gentler, teasing sensation. It’s become my go-to for those nights when I really need to get off quickly.” – one of our We-Vibe Tango X testers

Vibration Quality: 8/10

We-Vibe is known for its deep, rumbly motors, and the We-Vibe Tango X does not disappoint. Though a tad buzzier than the original Tango, these are still some of the thuddy, penetrating vibrations you expect from We-Vibe. It’s leagues rumblier than the Lelo Mia or Lovehoney Juno Egg but not quite as deep and resonant as the We-Vibe Touch X.

“The rumbles on this mini powerhouse are so deliciously deep and penetrating. I find myself getting lost in the sensation, whereas with buzzier vibes I tend to go numb after a while. It’s a night and day difference that has completely spoiled me for other bullets.” – a verified Tango X reviewer on We-Vibe’s official website

Design: 9/10

At about 4″ long and 1″ wide, the We-Vibe Tango X is compact and travel-friendly without sacrificing power. The sleek silicone and ABS plastic body looks modern and the midnight blue or cherry red color options are sophisticated and gender-neutral. While a touch longer than the original, it’s still petite enough to fit between bodies easily.

“I absolutely adore the new silicone handle. It’s like We-Vibe read my mind! No more cramped, slippery fingers mid-session. Plus, the sleek, modern look is so much more discreet and gender-neutral than my old lipstick vibe.” – a verified We-Vibe Tango X reviewer on Lovehoney

Noise Level: 9/10

Impressively quiet for the power it puts out. The We-Vibe Tango X’s low hum is barely audible through covers or a closed door, even on high. It’s a bit louder than the near-silent Lelo Mia but much less noticeable than the Lovehoney Juno Egg’s high-pitched whine. Great for discreet use.

In this table, you can see the noise levels of some of the most popular bullets in dB on their minimum and maximum intensity levels:

Lelo Lyla 24146

“As someone with roommates, discretion is key for me. I was thrilled to discover how quiet this bullet vibe is, even on the higher settings. I can use it without worrying about anyone overhearing, which has been a real game-changer for my self-care routine.” – one of our testers of We-Vibe Tango X

Ease of Use: 10/10

The redesigned 3-button interface is wonderfully intuitive. The raised +/- buttons make adjusting intensity a breeze and the dedicated ~ button keeps patterns separate. Much prefer this to the original’s single button cycling. The silicone grip makes it easy to hold onto, even with lube.

“The three-button interface on the Tango X is an absolute dream. Switching between intensities is so intuitive, and I love that I can explore the patterns without losing my favorite constant speed. It’s made playing and experimenting so much more fun and stress-free.” – a verified We-Vibe Tango X reviewer on Amazon

Battery Life & Charging: 8/10

On high constant, I got about 1.5 hours of use which is decent for a bullet this size/power. The magnetic charger stays put reliably, a huge improvement on the original’s finicky charging. Takes about 90 min to recharge fully. Overall battery life is a smidge lower than the Je Joue bullets but better than the Vedo Bam.

“I’ve been burned (not literally!) by short battery life on bullet vibes before, so I was relieved to find that the Tango X lasts a solid 90 minutes on a single charge. And the new magnetic charger actually stays put, hallelujah! No more waking up to a dead vibe after an overnight charging fail.” – one of our testers of We-Vibe Tango X

Material & Build Quality: 9/10

The We-Vibe Tango X is a luxury product through and through. The silky matte silicone and hard ABS plastic are seamlessly joined with no noticeable gaps or defects. Feels solid and built to last.

However, some people do not enjoy the hardness of the ABS plastic. That is why I used a durometer and measured the hardness of each of the popular bullets on the Shore A scale. Check the table below. A lower number is softer, and a higher number is harder. For example, Touch X feels soft and squishy at 32 HA, while Tango X, Lelo Lily 3, and Lelo Mia are hard like Lego blocks.

“The moment I held the vibrator, I could feel the quality. The silicone is so lusciously smooth, and there’s zero janky gaps or seams. It just exudes luxury. I have no doubts this baby is built to last, which is good, because I plan on keeping it around for a long, long time!” – – a verified We-Vibe Tango X reviewer on Lovehoney

Water Resistance: 8/10

We-Vibe Tango X is fully waterproof and submersible. Had no issues using it in the bath or shower. The open charging port makes me a tad nervous but have had no problems so far with water ingress. Similar water resistance to most higher end bullet vibes.

“As someone who loves a good bath session, I was thrilled to take this little gadget for a dip. It performed like a champ, no water ingress or wonky behavior at all. It’s opened up a whole new world of aquatic play for me, and I’m loving every minute of it.” – – a verified We-Vibe Tango X reviewer on Amazon

Ease of Cleaning: 9/10

The We-Vibe Tango X’s non-porous ABS plastic and silicone materials make cleaning a snap. Can easily wipe down with toy cleaner and cloth or rinse with gentle soap and water. The lack of nooks, crannies and textures mean there’s nowhere for gunk to hide. Just as easy to clean as the original Tango.

“Cleanup is a breeze. The smooth, non-porous surface rinses clean with just a little toy cleaner and water. No more scrubbing away at mystery gunk caught in weird grooves or textures. It’s honestly as low-maintenance as my stainless steel dildo, which is saying something!” – a verified Tango X reviewer on We-Vibe’s official site

Warranty & Customer Support: 10/10

We-Vibe offers a 2-year warranty for the Tango X against defects, which is twice as long as the industry standard of 1 year. In my experience, their customer support is responsive, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. The warranty process is fairly simple, with proof of purchase, and it is on par with competitors like Lelo.

“Knowing that the bullet is backed by a 2-year warranty gives me such peace of mind. I had to reach out to We-Vibe’s customer support once before, and they were so helpful and easy to work with. It’s great to know I’m making an investment in a product and company I can trust.” – a verified We-Vibe Tango X reviewer on Lovehoney

We-Vibe Tango X vs. Tango (what are the improvements over the original)

As someone who has thoroughly enjoyed the original We-Vibe Tango for years, I was thrilled to experience the evolution firsthand with the Tango X. The moment I held it in my hand, I could appreciate the improved ergonomics thanks to the silky silicone grip, which made it so much easier to maintain control during intense solo and partner play sessions.

Another big improvement for me was the expanded intensity range and even rumblier vibrations. The Tango X’s eight levels of power allowed me to find my perfect sweet spot, whether I was in the mood for a gentle tease or a deep, satisfying release. The vibrations felt more penetrating and nuanced compared to the original, leading to some truly mind-blowing orgasms.

I also found myself appreciating the streamlined three-button controls, which made it effortless to switch between intensities and patterns without disrupting the flow of my play. And as someone who values discretion, the Tango X’s whisper-quiet operation was a welcome improvement.

The battery life is also about 30% better on the We-Vibe Tango X, allowing for longer sessions.

Overall, the We-Vibe Tango X has taken everything I loved about the original and elevated it to new heights, except for the vibration strength. The original Tango is slightly stronger than the X.

We-Vibe Tango X vs Touch X

The vibration strength of both bullets is about the same, although Touch X feels stronger because it is about 3 times rumblier (its vibrations penetrate deeper).

Another big difference is the material. Touch X is fully silicone-coated and has a very soft broad tip that is great for grinding and covers more area, almost like a mini wand vibrator. We-Vibe Tango X, on the other hand, has a very hard ABS plastic tapered tip, which is better for a more pinpointed, focused stimulation.

And their purpose is different. Tango X is much slimmer and lighter, and its design is unintrusive since it looks like lipstick. And it’s quieter. That’s why it is much better as a travel companion. Touch X is larger, bulkier, heavier, and a little noisier, but it has a better grip. So, it is a great bullet for at-home use.

  1. Make sure your bullet is charged and ready for use.

  3. To increase the vibration intensity, press the “+” button. There are 8 intensity levels to choose from.
  4. To decrease the vibration intensity, press the “-” button.
  5. To cycle through the 7 vibration patterns, press the “~” button.
  6. Apply the We-Vibe Tango X to your desired erogenous zones, such as the clitoris, nipples, or any other sensitive areas. Experiment with different pressures and angles to find what feels best for you.
  7. To turn off the bullet, press and hold the “-” button for a couple of seconds until the vibrations stop.
  8. Clean your toy with mild soap and water or a toy cleaner before and after each use.

How to Charge We-Vibe Tango X:

  1. Locate the charging port at the base of your vibrator.
  2. Connect the magnetic charging cable (included with the Tango X) to the charging port. The cable will snap into place when properly connected.
  3. Plug the USB end of the charging cable into a USB power adapter or a USB port on your computer.
  4. A white LED light on the toy will blink slowly to indicate that it’s charging.
  5. Once the bullet is fully charged (after approximately 90 minutes), the LED light will stop blinking and remain solid.
  6. Disconnect the charging cable from the vibrator and the power source once it’s fully charged.

Tips for maximum pleasure from my experience:

  1. Experiment with different pressure and angles: The We-Vibe Tango X’s precise tip allows for targeted stimulation, while the flat edge provides a broader sensation. Vary the pressure and angle to find what feels most incredible for you. I discovered that I love pressing the flat side against my clitoris and rocking the toy back and forth for an all-encompassing pleasure.
  2. Use it during partner play: The We-Vibe Tango X’s compact size makes it perfect for use during couples’ play. Try holding it against your clitoris during penetration for mind-blowing blended orgasms. My partner and I love incorporating the bullet into our foreplay – teasing each other with the rumbly vibrations on our most sensitive spots before diving into intercourse.
  3. Explore erogenous zones beyond the clitoris: While the Tango X is a clitoral rockstar, don’t be afraid to venture to other erogenous areas like the nipples, inner thighs, or perineum. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed trailing the toy’s vibrations along my inner thighs and around my labia before honing in on my clit – it built up the anticipation deliciously.
  4. Play with the patterns: While I typically gravitate towards constant vibrations, seven patterns offer some exciting variety. I found that the wave pattern, which builds in intensity and then tapers off, is perfect for edging and prolonging my pleasure.
  5. Use it in the bath or shower: The vibrator is fully waterproof, making it an excellent companion for aquatic adventures. I love bringing mine into the bath for a steamy, relaxing solo session. The warm water heightens the sensations, and the Tango X’s rumbly vibrations feel even more incredible when submerged.
  6. Don’t forget the lube: While the smooth exterior glides effortlessly against the skin, a little water-based lube can take your pleasure to the next level. I find that a small dollop of lube helps the We-Vibe Tango X slide more easily across my clitoris, leading to a smoother, more satisfying experience.
  7. Take advantage of the low settings: While the Tango X’s higher intensities are undeniably thrilling, don’t underestimate the power of the lower settings. I often start my solo sessions on the lowest constant speed, savoring the gentle rumbles before gradually increasing the intensity. This build-up makes my orgasms feel even more explosive and satisfying.

We-Vibe Tango X customer reviews

We-Vibe Tango X has very good customer reviews on Amazon (52% 5-star reviews), and it is highly rated on both the We-Vibes site and Lovehoney.

I will dig mostly into the negative reviews and give you my comments on them since they are usually what concerns people.

I’m so frustrated. It is not as strong as the original. Maybe it’s the addition of the silicone? Doesn’t work for me. Neither does Hitachi. Looking for the OG! Found one for 150. Dang.

Also, DOES NOT HOLD your previous setting after you turn it off, goes back lowest pattern/intensity. Want to take a break and jump back in? “Hang on Hon, I gotta ramp up my thingy dingy”

Okay, I agree that We-Vibe Tango X is slightly weaker than the original. But keep your expectations straight. If the Hitachi does not work for this customer, almost nothing will, short of maybe Doxy Die Cast, which is a huge and heavy wand that can’t be compared with a bullet.

And yes, the Tango X does not remember its last setting, as I mentioned in the review already, so if that is a priority feature for you, you might check the Le Wand Bullet.

I decided this bullet is not for me. My main reasons are:
1. The hard plastic is a turn-off. This iteration of this classic bullet gilds half of it in silicone… why not the rest?
2. I like more area stimulation vs. pinpoint and while the lipstick-shaped end seems to offer both, it wasn’t quite doing it for me
3. It got distractingly HOT after about 5 minutes, maybe less
4. Because it’s a shorty, it’s probably good for travel, partner play, and being discrete… but it rumbles your hand, too, and has limited instability

Ok, I have already covered most of these points in the review, but it seems this Amazon customer learned about them after buying the toy. And he is correct on all the points. If you also don’t like plastic, want more area stimulation and something that does not get hot for longer sessions, I recommend the We-Vibe Touch X. This will be the ideal bullet doe you.

I’ve had this little vibe for less than a year and it’s dead already and evidently I only had 30 days to return it. I had it’s predecessor and used it almost daily for a good couple of years before it went kaput! I really just Woodall this one would grace lasted longer!

This customer is wrong. You have 30 days to return the item if you do not like it, but if it breaks, We-Vibe has a 2-year warranty with proof of purchase. So all he had to do is reach for the support.

It feels like it would have strong vibration, but as it touches the skin, the motor slows down. It did not get the job done. I do not recommend if you prefer strong vibrations.

And another reviewer thinks the vibrations are not strong enough. That’s why I want you to keep your expectations straight. Bullet vibrators are small and discrete, they can’t phisically have a large and powerful motor. If you know yourself and you need the strongest vibrations, no mini vibe will do it for you. So make sure you get a wand. I have a guide on the best wand vibrators here.

Where to buy the We-Vibe Tango X

I hope I gave you enough information in this review so you can make an educated descision if the We-Vibe Tango X is the right bullet for you. We all have different sexual responses and sensitivity, but if you are looking for a mini vibe for on-the-go pleasure, Tango X is one of the best.

I recommend that you buy it directly from We-Vibe. This way, if something happens and the toy breaks, the warranty will be much easier to deal with, and you can be sure you won’t buy a counterfeit product. You can also try trusted online retailers like Lovehoney. They have a satisfaction guarantee program, so if for some reason you do not like your toy, you can return it, no questions asked.
