Toy Review: The Lovehoney Silencer 6 Function USB Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator

The Lovehoney Silencer 6 Function USB Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator is exactly what its name suggests—a bullet vibe intended to be whisper quiet during use. While I’m not generally a fan of bullet vibes, the Lovehoney Silencer Bullet delivers everything it promises and provides a decent enough level of power to have won me over in many respects.

The Lovehoney Silencer Bullet is quite nicely designed. With an ABS Plastic shell and a silicone control band, the Silencer Bullet looks smooth, sleek, and discreet. The base of the Silencer Bullet is flat, which means it can be propped easily on one’s bedside table. While the Silencer Bullet may not fool sex toy veterans with its relatively identifiable ‘bullet vibe’ appearance, most prying eyes could be convinced that the Silencer Bullet is instead a USB stick—made more convincing when you pull off its cap and unveil the USB plug.

Yes, as well as being sleekly designed and whisper quiet the Silencer Bullet is rechargeable via USB. Just plug this baby into the side of your computer and wait for the built-in LED to stop glowing and you’re ready to go. This makes the Silencer Bullet the perfect portable stealth vibe—ready to go wherever you go and quiet and discreet throughout use.

On top of all off this the Silencer Bullet is waterproof—which makes the Silencer Bullet easy to clean and gives you some extra options if you value underwater fun.

The Silencer Bullet has 6 different vibration modes—5 different patterns and a consistent vibration.

The vibrations from the Silencer Bullet aren’t the most powerful vibrations on the market but they’re still pretty decent. The vibrations have a proliferating rumble to them that purrs gently on the lower levels and beats up a humming buzz on the higher ones. Despite gaining a bit of buzz on the higher levels the Silencer Bullet still keeps a decent rumble which allows for the depth of vibration that the clitoris craves so often.

It must be said that the vibrations from the Silencer Bullet are mid-level at best, and are still beaten out by other bullet vibes (such as the Tango). But for a near-silent bullet vibe they’re still impressive and, when put into perspective, I would call the Silencer Bullet the strong a silent type, and who isn’t attracted to that?

And when I say silent I do mean silent.

When turned on but not in use (aka not nuzzled between body parts) the Silencer Bullet does let off a gentle hum that can still be heard. However, during use the Silencer Bullet is basically undetectable, and would definitely not be heard through a door. Because of this the Silencer Bullet really is the perfect vibrator for use during travel, for people living in joint accommodation, or for anyone wanting a portable pleasure device for fleeting moments of naughtiness.

It’s perfectly sized, reasonably powerful, rechargeable, and practically undetectable during use. Fantastic!

The only major flaws I had with the Lovehoney Silencer Bullet are ones that are easy to overlook in comparison to its benefits.

The first issue I found was that the buttons are a bit unresponsive; especially to turning off or changing to one of the 5 patterns that the Silencer Bullet provides. This was the biggest problem and at times I had to repeatedly button-mash the – button in order to turn the vibe off.

The second issue is that, while the Silencer Bullet is decently rumbly and powerful for its size and level of volume, the Silencer Bullet does still only produce mid-level vibrations. As such this vibrator probably won’t please those who crave power, and the We-Vibe Tango would probably be a better choice for people who don’t find sound to be an issue.

Still, the Silencer Bullet has enough rumble to it that its depth of vibration compensates for this to some degree, meaning the Silencer Bullet still manages to deliver a formidable performance.

Final Thoughts

Overall the Silencer Bullet is a great vibrator which achieves everything it sets out to do.

At £19.99 this bullet vibe is very affordable. It’s as cheap as some battery-run bullets and has many more features.

With all of this considered I’d be more than happy to recommend the Silencer Bullet to those who want a gentle, discreet vibrator. I know that I’ll be taking this vibe with me whenever I’m on the go.

Recommend to:

People who value discretion.

People who like mid-level vibrations.

People who like rumbly vibrations.

Do Not Recommend to:

People who crave power.

People who prefer softer toys.

People who dislike USB-charging toys.
