Toys with Noise – What Makes a Vibrator Quiet

    Toys with Noise – What Makes a Vibrator Quiet

    Some customers have requested we include a noise score on product pages allowing them to locate a quiet vibrator with ease. If a vibrator is exceptionally quiet, we write this as a selling feature in the description. On the contrary if you’ll hear a distracting tone we’ll mention that also. If the vibrator is extremely loud we simply won’t sell it. This is why there is currently no quality score for sound level as we avoid the ones that are too noisy – if it’s loud you’ll know and if it’s quiet you’ll be well aware of this before you make the final purchase. In the future, we will be implementing this feature so stick around, check back often and one day you’ll see it there, star rating and all.

    Despite this information, some people may be left asking what makes a vibrator quiet in the first place? Using this as a guide you can get an idea of styles with the least noise and what is present to muffle the distraction.

     

    Inside the vibrator motor.

    vibrator motorA battery operated device with a motor inside which makes an exposed weighted metal part to sway on an axis in a circular motion.

    The weighted piece is on one side only which creates an imbalance when it turns causing the entire vibrator to thud back and forth, with the high speed this motor turns it creates a feeling of vibration. The noise comes from two possible sources, first the turning of the device inside the motor and secondly the spinning of the weighted part itself.

     

    Interior sound muffling.

    The quality of the build affects how quiet the motor will operate. A good quality motor will have precise spacing in between the moving parts preventing rubbing which is a common cause of rattling. You won’t be able to see inside to view the padding and the type of parts used so you’ll have to base this on price. It’s not always a sure thing however it’s a general guideline that the higher the price, the better quality the motor. Especially in plastic vibrators. A cheap vibe will be loud, an expensive plastic vibrator will be more quiet.

     

    It’s what’s on the outside that counts.

    Knowing what it’s made from is the best way to determine how quiet a sex toy will be. Anything thick like Cyberskin or jelly will be the most quiet, physics plays the biggest role as the more dense and thick a vibe is, the more quiet it will be as the sound waves are absorbed by the material on it’s way out. A dense jelly vibrators will be the most quiet type of sex toy. On the contrary, a plastic shell will always be the loudest.

     

    Trying it out.

    We’ve noticed that many packages claim “whisper quiet” only to activate it ourselves to discover it’s just as loud as any other comparable product. This is frighteningly more common then you may think. This is another reason why when we order a new sex toy for our catalog, we always take one out of the box and turn it on, try it out (not literally of course) but we hold each thing in our hand to see exactly what it looks like, how it sounds and what it feel like to touch it.

     

    Big brands compare.

    If a sex toy is made under a popular brand name, this has no effect on it’s level of silence. Price prevails, all manufacturers have cheap loud toys and quiet high end versions as well.

     

    Too loud to sell.

    Ending on an exemplary note, once we ordered a mini stimulator called the Silent Rocket. Excitedly we gave it a whirl only to discover it was just as loud as the cheaper no-name versions. This one would have retailed for double the price! It was an easy decision to send it back and never to sell these to our customers as the product name itself was extremely misdealing!
