The Most Unique Dual Massager

This toy allows you to experience powerful vibration and enjoy a unique finger-turning motion inside your vagina at the same time!

Plus, it is super portable and comes with free app control function. 

Lelo Ida Wave package

Lelo Ida Wave is also waterproof, so you can take it with you in the shower, tub, or swim while experiencing real stimulation.

I appreciate the ergonomic design, making it easy to hold and use. The adjustable intensity got me off guard thanks to the precision settings that hit my spot.

Ida Wave is sure to please whether you're looking for a gentle massage or a wild ride. 

Key Features of Ida Wave

As someone who loves both clitoral and G-spot stimulation, I was intrigued by the Ida Wave, and for good reason:

1. Ergonomic Design

Seeing as I love giving and receiving pleasure, the Lelo Ida Wave's dual stimulation really cater to my needs.

This stylish massager is designed to comfortably fit your vagina and stimulate the G-spot with pinpoint accuracy.

The smooth silicone exterior is soft to the touch and easy to use.

Despite of being a small toy that only measures 63 x 56 x 93 mm (2.5 x 2.2 x 3.7 inches) in size, I found that the ergonomic design made it easy to target the G-spot area, and the result was an intense and very satisfying orgasm.

2. Whisper Quiet Operation?

Saying it's whisper quiet is a bit exaggerating, but this toy indeed isn't that loud, esp. when inserted.

I'm a naughty girl, and this device … mmmh. It’s perfect for my everyday need.

I can take it with me wherever I go, and its small size means it won't get in the way.

The best part is that it's silent enough, so I can use it in many occasions, at home or in public, without worrying too much of others hearing me. 

I've used it a few time when taking night flights, the engine sound totally can cover the vibration noise.

People behind and in front of you won't really hear the toy. Just don't do it if there's someone sitting right next to you.

3. Enticing Vibrations & Rotation

Ida wave embraces 2 motors - one for the clit, the other for the G-spot.

I love the this toy because it has a powerful motor that delivers strong, targeted vibrations for clitoris.

Besides, the unique wave motion that the motor produces creates a sensation similar to the feeling of actual tongue movement, which allows me to achieve intense explosive orgasms with ease.

I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new and exciting way to experience pleasure. 

4. 100% Waterproof

Lelo Ida Wave waterproof

I appreciate the Lelo Ida Wave because I love using it during bath time. And why not? This tiny sexual demon is 100% waterproof.

This feature means you can enjoy your favorite water-based activities without worry.

Whether you're taking a dip in the pool or enjoying a relaxing bubble bath, the Lelo Ida Wave will be right there with you.

5. Multiple Pleasure Settings to Explore

I have to say that the Ida Wave is one of the most unique vibrators/massagers in the market.

This top-of-the-line vibrator features 4 different settings, each designed to maximize pleasure. 

With the app, it can be configured up to 10 different modes.

Are you in the mood for a slow and sensual build-up or suddenly want a quick and intense release?

No matter what type of patterns/sensations you are looking for, the Lelo Ida Wave has got you covered. 

The best part about it is that it has a wave motion feature that makes it even more intense as long as it fit your body anatomy.

6. App Controllable 

Lelo Ida Wave app control

Lelo's app isn't the most versatile one in the market, but I think this app-connected massager is good for couples who want to add a little vibration to their sex life. 

Besides, you could also run naughty errands with your partner.

The Ida Wave is connected with your phone via bluetooth connection.

It's great for short-range of control, but not possible to manage long-distance control like other vibrating apps such as Lovense Remote and Kiiroo Feel Connect

This Lelo app has only pre-programmed vibration patterns so you're not able to choose for each motor what it does, but you have all kinds of combos to choose from.

7. Premium Soft Silicone


I’ve been using this toy for around 2 months now and so far, I am still a big fan of it.

I love the extra-soft silicone because it feels soft and warm to the touch, and it's very versatile.

The material feels soft yet rigid enough to apply the required pressure outside and inside me. The silicone is also safe to use.

8. Long Lasting Battery

With all these features, it’s no wonder Lelo Ida Wave comes with an extremely long-lasting battery.

You can use the toy for up to 2 hours after each charge. 

This allows you to relish unmatched pleasure indoors or outdoors without worrying about being cut off.

How To Use the Lelo Ida Wave Vibrator?

There are two methods of using this mind-blowing device.

They include manually or via a free app that can be downloaded either in Apple or Android stores.

How To Use It Manually?

To use the vibrartor manually, makes sure the toy is charged, apply water-based lubricant to the toy and your body, and insert it into the vagina.

There's only one button on the toy!

  • Before inserting, you can press the "(( ))" button to turn it on.
  • Once inserted, press the same button to cycle through the different modes and intensity. 
  • When you're finished, press and hold the "(( ))" button for 2-3 seconds to turn off the toy.

The LED lights is a good indicator for all situations. When the light blinks during charging, it means the toy hasn't been fully charged.

When the lights go steady, it shows the vibration level.

How To Use It With the App?

Lelo Ida Wave app connection

To use Ida Wave with the app, you'll need to download the Lelo Smartphone App and connect your toy to it via Bluetooth.

Once you're connected, you can choose from more pre-programmed modes and control the patterns and intensity for both the motors. 

Each motor offers 10 different modes. So, with mix and match, there are 100 different combination you can choose from!

You can also change through different modes along with the vibration strength. 

It's possible to play with the toy in three ways - Screwing, Shaking and Boring (see picture below). 

No matter which way you choose,  the app allows you to very easily change the vibration type or the intensity.

Packaging & What's in the Box?

Shipping from Lelo is always quite fast. It took 2 working days to receive this toy.

Packaging is neat and discreet. Inside the chic black box, there are the following things: 

Lelo Ida Wave unbox
  • Lelo Ida Wave dual massager
  • USB-charging cord (plug-in type)
  • Black Satin storage pouch
  • Instruction manual
  • Warranty registration card (1-year product warranty & 10-year quality guarantee) 

My Experience With the Lelo Ida Wave

I have to say, when I first saw Lelo Ida Wave, I was a little intimidated.

It’s not the biggest toy I’ve ever seen, but the device is pretty thick. And it has that weird wave-like thing going on. 

But I’m nothing if not brave, so I decided to try it. And I’m glad I did! 

The wave-like feature makes a huge difference. It provides a lot of stimulation without being too overwhelming.

And the size is perfect; Not too girthy, yet, not too small. 

Lelo Ida Wave is a worth-trying toy, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants some vaginal touch while getting the clit stimulated.

I found the vibration was strong enough to provide clitoral stimulation, while the up-and-down felt amazing when inserted vaginally. 

Lelo Ida Wave insert solo

Thanks to its size and design, it has been a great for both solo and couple play.

How I enjoyed using it with my partner? Well, the added vibration felt great on his shaft and testicles. But it took me a while to convince him to give it a try.

As for the bad points, I would say the charging cables! 

The battery itself is fine, it lasts around 2 hours. However, I really don't like the plug-in type of charging system. 

Most sex toy companies now only use magnetic chargers, which is a lot more neat and allows the toy to have a more seamless design. 

But LELO is just so stubborn on this point and don't want to update their charging system.

There is another similar toys from LELO, called Tiani Harmony.

Lelo Tiani Harmony vs Ida wave

Compared to the Tiani Harmony, I found that the Ida Wave was better for providing clitoral stimulation.

The Harmony is designed to be worn internally by the woman during intercourse, which transfers vibrations to her partner.

However, it didn't provide as much clitoral stimulation as I'd like.

The Ida Wave is a better option if you're looking for stronger vaginal stimulation while the Tiani Harmony is more interesting for couples as it stimulates both partners relatively equally.

Alternatives to the LELO IDA Wave

While Ida Wave is a great device, I have to say that they would go head to head with the We-Vibe Chorus and Zalo Aya.

We-Vibe Chorus

Lelo Ida Wave vs We-vibe Chorus

Read a detailed We-vibe Chorus review

The We-Vibe Chorus is a unique vibrator because of its design and its versatility.

It’s curved to fit the female body and stimulate the G-spot, and it also features external vibrations that both partners can feel. 

I enjoyed using this vibrator because it was easy to find my G-spot and the external vibrations felt fantastic.

My partner also enjoyed using it on me because he could feel vibrations.

Unlike LELO app, The app from We-vibe actually allows long-distance control and it offers customizable patterns.

Zalo Aya

Lelo Ida Wave vs Zalo Aya

The Zalo Aya is a unique vibrator because the G-spot and the clit part can be separated.

This toy is made of highest-grade silicone, which makes it super soft and smooth.

It also has a wider G-spot shaft that’s designed to stimulate the vaginal wall. I enjoyed using this toy because it's really beautiful and the vibration is really rumbly. 

Thanks to the silky silicone, it feels great sliding in and out. Overall, I think the Zalo Aya is a great vibrator for anyone looking for a stimulating G-spot experience.

The only downside is that their app needs great amount of improvements.

Key Takeaway

If you're looking for a new and thrilling way to get your orgasms, Lelo Ida Wave is worth trying!

This vibrator features a unique wave-like motion that will send you over the edge every time. 

Not only is the Lelo Ida Wave incredibly pleasurable, but it's also stylish and discreet. It's the perfect toy for anyone who wants to add extra excitement to their sex life.

hi Jane,
I was wondering out of all the dual vibrators youve tried or mentioned in this post (ida, chorus, etc). Which unit has the strongest clit vibrations? and do they compare to like the tango x or weaker?

Jane Louis December 15, 2022 - 4:45 am

Hi Lisa, I do feel TangoX is stronger than Ida and Chorus though it’s not a dual toy. A few other toys have motor that are as strong as TangoX, but TangoX feel uniquely stronger due to its material being harder than silicone. What type of dual vibe are you looking for? Any requirement regarding size? You want it to be strong for both G-spot and Clit?

My thoughts on the Ida Wave.

TLDR: I’d buy it again, but only because it’s the only thing like it on the market. I think it’s overpriced for what it is.

First off, this is, hand down, my favorite sex toy. It works consistently every time. As someone with a particularly sensitive clitoris directly vibrating stimulation is often too much. The wider external portion of the toy offers a more dispersed stimulation, hitting a variety of areas of the labia and tissue surrounding the clitoris, not just the clit itself. And the internal portion has a rotating/swirling motion in addition to the vibration. The packing and finishes make it feel like a high end toy. I really like the feel of the soft silicone. Not at all tacky or sticky; very smooth. It creates some great sensations.

1. Quality of materials.
2. Unique design.
3. Effectiveness.

That being said, at this price point, there are some significant design flaws and missing features that are troubling.

1. The button to turn it on and off is easily pushed by my thighs, while in use, causing it to abruptly turn off in the middle of my experience. I wish they had put that somewhere else.
2. There’s no travel lock, so it has turned on in my suitcase more than once.
3. You have to use the app to operate it; there’s no other remote control or button option. Which can sometimes get old.
4. There are several different patterns to choose from, many of which use different patterns on each of the two different motors. But you can only choose from the 10 existing combinations. And the power level cannot be controlled separately for each motor.
5. There’s no battery indicator. If I can view the battery level of my $50 headphones on my phone, I should be able to see how much battery I have left in this almost-two-hundred-dollar sex toy.
6. While you can have a partner connect to the toy, they can only do so in bluetooth range. It cannot be used at a distance.

Thanks a lot for sharing your insights, Joyce!

Thank you for your review Jane, with so many good options out there it is often difficult to decide on what would actually be something you like and depending on what you get it can be quite disappointing
if something doesn’t quite work as intended.

Your reviews have helped me in 2 of my previous decisions. Thank you! I am now thinking about the Lelo Ida Wave.
