Womanizer Classic vs. Premium vs. We-Vibe Melt Comparison & Review

If you’re overwhelmed by the air pulse/clitoral suction toy options on the market, I don’t blame you!

Womanizer is the pio­neer and most well-known, but many oth­er com­pa­nies have hopped on the band­wag­on. The options are endless!

Today, we’re focus­ing on the Womanizer mod­els and We-Vibe Melt. Why? Because these two brands (along with ROMP Toys) all come from the same par­ent com­pa­ny — the merg­er that is now Wow-Tech. As such, the sen­sa­tion among them is similar.

If you like one model from them, you’ll probably like the others.

It’s just that the more expen­sive ones come with more fea­tures, such as:

  • More speed settings 
    • More inten­si­ty?!
  • Buttons and controls
  • Longer bat­tery life
  • Longer han­dle
  • A sleek­er appearance

It’s up to you where you draw the regard­ing what’s worth it and what’s not.


In this clitoral air pulse comparison review:

What you can expect from any Womanizer, We-Vibe Melt, or ROMP pressure wave toy

These clitoral air pulsators work by rapidly alternating between sucking and blowing.

Think of some­one going, “puh-puh-puh-puh-puh” on your cli­toris or nip­ple, but super fast. Simply, it’s a touch-free air vibra­tion sen­sa­tion that I adore. Can it repli­cate oral sex? No, but it’s focused and local­ized pow­er that gives you ample of VOOM — even when tru­ly whisper-quiet.

Two further notes on anatomy

First, your junk has to fit inside the suc­tion noz­zle for these air pulse toys to form a seal and work. If your cli­toral glans is more promi­nent than, say, a pis­ta­chio, I’d sug­gest you stay away.

However, if your cli­toral hood is lip­py like mine is, it won’t affect the feel­ing much. You may want to splay your labia a bit more, but it’s not nec­es­sary. The sen­sa­tion is more than pow­er­ful enough, even over my hood.

Update: I’ve com­piled a guide to 20+ air pulse stim­u­la­tors, which address­es all of the above fac­tors and more


Womanizer Classic vs. Womanizer Premium

There’s a whop­ping $70 dif­fer­ence between the Womanizer Classic and Womanizer Premium, and for what? I like the Womanizer Premium’s addi­tion­al fea­tures a lot, but I would­n’t pay that much extra for them. You might care about the upgrades more, though.

First impressions of the Womanizer Premium clitoral air pulse suction toy

The superficial features

One that might par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est you is the Womanizer Premium’s longer han­dle (7.5″ vs. 7″) and more ergonom­ic curve. If you need more room to maneu­ver — say, you’re posi­tion­ing toys on a big body — you may care more about that than I do.

Womanizer Classic vs. Womanizer Premium

The Premium mod­el’s seam­less sil­i­cone body is more grip­py to hold but also eas­i­er to clean. You can use a small clean­ing brush to clean the Womanizer Classic’s nooks and cran­nies, but I under­stand if that’s too much extra effort for you.

Other surface-level differences between the Womanizer Classic and Womanizer Premium include:
  • More col­or options with the Premium 
    • The Classic comes in just purple.
  • Metallic accents on the handle
  • LED indi­ca­tors

But that’s not what you came here for, right? On to the stuff that matters!

Functional differences between the Womanizer Classic and Womanizer Premium

The Womanizer Premium boasts additional features:
  • More speed range (12 lev­els vs. 8) on both ends
  • Better bat­tery life (4 hours vs. 3)
  • Smart Silence mode
  • Autopilot
What does Smart Silence mean with the Womanizer Premium?

Smart Silence means it auto­mat­i­cal­ly stops thrum­ming if you pull it away from your skin. That way, you don’t have to pan­ic about turn­ing it off quick­ly and dis­creet­ly because OMG OMG OH NO, SOMEONE’S APPROACHING! It’s super use­ful if you share your build­ing or room with others.

To deac­ti­vate Smart Silence, long-press the up and down but­tons at the same time. Also! If you’re look­ing for a tra­di­tion­al mas­sager with such a fea­ture, the We-Vibe Wand has a Smart Silence mode as well!

Womanizer Classic (pur­ple) vs. Womanizer Premium (white) con­trol pan­els. Notice how the Premium has 4 but­tons instead of 3.

Autopilot mode and 4‑button control panel

Instead of 3 but­tons (on/off, decrease, increase) like on the Womanizer Classic, the Premium mod­el has 4 on its con­trol pan­el. The addi­tion­al switch is to acti­vate Autopilot mode. It takes con­trol and decides when to ramp up the speed for you.

Maybe you’d like it, but unless I’m tak­ing my time to enjoy porn, I’m impa­tient AF. I don’t use Autopilot or Smart Silence often, so I’d pre­fer to stick to a Womanizer Classic or Womanizer Liberty.


How does the Womanizer Liberty measure up to the Classic model?

[Image: Womanizer Classic front view and Womanizer Liberty side view]

Womanizer Classic vs. Womanizer Liberty

The Womanizer Liberty, a.k.a. the “Womanizer smol,” is about the size of an avo­ca­do. It costs $30 less than the Classic and $100 less (!!!) than the Premium. That’s not a dif­fer­ence to scoff at.

Overall, the Womanizer Liberty is just as intense.

You do, how­ev­er, get only 6 set­tings instead of 8 (or 12), and its low­est speed isn’t as gen­tle as the Womanizer Premium’s.

It also has a short­er bat­tery life of 2 hours (instead of 3 or 4), and the han­dle is small­er. And anoth­er lit­tle dif­fer­ence is that the Womanizer Liberty’s but­tons are on the noz­zle side instead of the opposite.

The Womanizer Classic or Premium will better serve you if you:
  • Have mobil­i­ty issues
  • Need more to grab on to
  • Would rather press but­tons with your thumb than index and mid­dle fingers
  • Have a suu­u­per picky clit and need the speed range

Womanizer Premium vs. Womanizer Liberty

But otherwise, the kind things I had to say about the Classic also apply to the Liberty.

Plus, it’s cheap­er, it’s cuter, it has a trav­el case, and it comes in more col­ors. What’s not to love?

Update: Find out how these mod­els com­pare to the new Womanizer Classic 2, Premium 2, and Starlet 3.

We-Vibe Melt vs. Womanizer

If you’re going to splurge, I’d rec­om­mend the We-Vibe Melt over the Womanizer Premium in most cas­es. The only time I would­n’t is if your clit is on the big­ger side since the Womanizers come with a broad­er noz­zle option.

[Image: We-Vibe Melt]

The We-Vibe Melt has an oval-shaped opening.

As the name would suggest, We-Vibe’s pressure wave toy focuses more on partner play:
  • Slender build for enhanced intercourse
  • Smartphone app-compatible
    • INCLUDING long-distance control!
    • Great for stay­ing in touch dur­ing quarantine
  • Continuous speed range
  • Slightly off­set noz­zle that makes it less of a vul­va hog

Overall, I enjoy the We-Vibe Melt’s bells and whis­tles way more. It’s eas­i­er to con­trol and fits between bod­ies more har­mo­nious­ly dur­ing inter­course. And it actu­al­ly has more pow­er­ful suc­tion and costs less than the Womanizer Premium.

Update: It might not be the best air pulse toy for inter­course for you or for the price, though. Find out why in my new guide to cli­toral air pulse toys.

      Since it’s so hard to keep up with all the pres­sure wave toys, this is incred­i­bly helpful!

      Thanks for this — it’d help if you com­pared the pow­er of the Melt vs. the Womanizers? I have a Womanizer Duo which I love (espe­cial­ly the inter­nal por­tion which is delight­ful­ly thud­dy), but often the suck­er part isn’t sucky enough. I’m think­ing since the Duo is pret­ty new, it prob­a­bly has the same range of strength (or max strength) as the oth­er mod­els, and am con­sid­er­ing the Wave. For those of us who need some real pow­er at the top range, please com­pare strength/suction power?

      Oh, and absolute­ly agree on the Sona — I got it for a deep dis­count and imme­di­ate­ly knew why. It does NOTHING for me. Nada. And the way that it’s con­struct­ed means that the lit­tle flap­per thing gets caught up in itself. Such a waste of mon­ey. My Satisfyer was much bet­ter, but even that I find isn’t enough suc­tion at top lev­els and isn’t thud­dy enough.
