Part of Vibrator Reviews Confusing Me

Rhazya Rhazya
When people review vibrators here they seem to talk about either low rumblely vibrations or high buzzy vibrations. I can't decide if they are referring to speed, power, or how the vibration feels on them or what? Can anyone explain it differently to me what they are referring to? It might help me pick out future vibrators.

It's the overall feel I think. If they're rumbly, you can feel them more "in" you instead of "on" you (like when you turn the bass up on your speakers). Buzzy vibrations are much more superficial, and many people find them not nearly as satisfying.

When I write it, it's refering to the actual vibration. If you were to test a Lelo Iris vibe with a Baby Fairy Wand, you'd notice an extreme difference in the type of vibration.
Put it this way - the rumble is a deep low sort of sounding vibration. The buzzy one is a high pitch vibration that usually causes numbing to the fingers and area ya using the toy on.

For me, buzzy distracts and puts me off the orgasm. A deep rumble gives a fantastic powerful orgasm.

its referring to the actual vibration. i find that buzzy vibrations are usually weaker and superficial and rumbly vibrations have more impact

When we use those terms, it's to describe the feeling of the vibrations. Low rumbly vibrations feel more like rapid "taps" that penetrate deeper, whereas high buzzy vibrations do more tickling across the surface of the skin and often become numbing (if it's a strong toy).

I'm trying to think of some household comparisons to give you an idea of the difference, and this is all I can come up with:

Lay your hand on the hood of an well-tuned idling 8-cylinder car, and that's rumbly. Most chair massage cushions are rumbly too, and so are a lot of clothes washers if you put your butt on them during the spin cycle.
An electric toothbrush or razor are buzzy.
