The Echo will make your orgasm echo within!

The Echo is a very well made toy that is a good size for all users. The ripples offer a great sensation and the bullet makes this toy multi-functioning. The material is safe to use and easy to clean. While the toy itself is very unique in how it feels, the bullet could be improved. Regardless, the echo will leave you echoing for more!

Use

The Echo is a high quality silicone dildo, which can also be a vibrator if the bullet is inserted. When using the bullet, put a drop of lube in the slot for it,which will make removing the bullet from the toy easier. Without this, the toy creates a vacuum and making the bullet difficult to remove.

The toy can be used with a harness, which is a plus, and is large enough to use vaginally but small enough to use anally. Overall, a very versatile toy!

Material / Texture

The Echo is made of Tantus' silicone which is 100% silicone with a polished-like finish. It is smooth and firm. The main feature of this toy are the ripples along the shaft which are not rigid, but large enough you can feel them while in use. The silicone is non-porous, phthalates-free, hypo-allergenic, and latex-free

Design / Shape / Size

I was considering a few of the Tantus Dildos, more specifically the Charmer, before finally settling on this on the echo. I was looking for something with some texture, but not too realistic (veiny, and the like). My intended use for this toy was to use it anally, but it also works well as a normal dildo, as I found when using it on my girlfriend.

The Echo is 6 1/2" long, with 5 1/2" of that being insertable. It also has a decent girth, at the widest(the ripples) is 1 1/2" in diameter, about the size of your average medium sized butt plug.

It is also O- Ring compatible for use with harnesses, but I have not tried this toy with one, so I can't comment on how well it works with one.

Overall, the Echo is about the size of an average penis, both in length and girth. I would suggest that it is an average sized toy for vaginal penetration, but a bit large for beginners anally (The Charmer I mentioned earlier is just as long, but slimmer at 1" in diameter). That is not to suggest it is massive, but it does take a little bit of working up to to be comfortable back there.

The ripples are very nice as they aren't too rigid, but large enough you can still feel them. I chose the copper color for this toy, simply to change it up, and it has a very nice orange like hue. It has a bit of a swirl to it as well.

The toy has a flared, round base, making it safe for anal use.

The bullet uses watch size batteries, which is a bit of a pain. It has one speed setting and can be turned on/off with the touch of a small button.

Performance

I bought this toy to use anally as I was seeking something that could offer a more full feeling, but also with some texture to it to feel while thrusting in and out. I did need some warm up with a smaller butt plug (I used the Tantus Ryder) before using the Echo, but the wait was well worth it, The ripples really could be felt and the toy did fill me up right away. It also hit my P-Spot, which was an added bonus which eventually lead to one of the best orgasms I have ever had. I learned to be patient and that the work to slowly massage the P-spot was well worth it!

The toy works great with or without the vibrating bullet, each giving a different sensation. When using this toy without the bullet, you can feet the definition and the ripples better, but the with the bullet, you get that added sensation of the vibrations. However, since the bullet is located at the base, the majority of its power is felt in that area. The vibration does follow the toy all the way to the tip, but is not as powerful. I don't think this is too much of a problem because if used anally, there are more nerves around the anus, which if fully inserted, that is where the vibration is focused. if used vaginally, the same principle generally applies.

I did find the bullet to be average both in power and in noise. This toy would be even better with a more powerful/upgraded bullet. I tried using the bullet that came with my Bad Boy Prostate massager, and it fit well into the slot in the echo. This bullet was a bit more powerful and gave a stronger sensation. I do wish Tantus offered a bullet that had a few different settings as this would enhance the toy ten fold.

Care and Maintenance

As with all silicone products, it can be disinfected/sterilized boiling it for 3 minutes or by throwing it into the top rack of your dishwasher or by using simple soap and warm water. Silicone is a very resilient material and will not break down and will last a very long time if properly cared for.

Remember to remove the bullet from the toy before washing this toy as it is not waterproof. On that note, also do not use the bullet with the toy where any water is involved (shower/tub/ pool, etc).

Use only water based lubes with this toy, as silicone lubes will cause the toy to deteriorate.

Packaging

This toy is no different from most of the Tantus line and comes in a simple plastic box. It doesn't offer much instruction for use, but allows you to see the entire product without removing it from the box, so you know exactly what you are buying.
Follow-up commentary
This toy has become one of my favorites. The ridges still blow my mind and the size is just great... not too big, not too small. Granted I have only used this toy anally, but I can imagine the sensations are equally positive for vaginal use.

I have found that personally, to get the best result from this toy, that some time is required to warm up and get the prostate going, but once you have that going, then be ready! To this day this toy has given me the best orgasm I have experienced using toys, even though it took almost an hour to achieve. I learned that going slow and enjoying the progression and sensation is worth it.

My only complaint with this toy is that I still wish it had a more powerful bullet. Other than that, this toy is close to perfect. I think every intermediate to advanced anal user should have this toy and enjoy it often!

This toy is extremely easy to clean and sterilize by using boiling water, which I have found makes this toy even easier to use and enjoy knowing you are playing safe.

    Great review! I wish you had tried this with a harness because I just got one also, but without the ripples and have not used it with a harness yet.

    Did you also try the charmer? The texture on this looks good but perhaps extreme.

    Yes I have tried the Charmer.... The texture on this is less extreme than on the charmer. Check out my review on that product as well. Between the two, I liked this one better due to its girth and the ripples. This one also vibrates, where as the charmer does not.

    Great review!

    I just received this today and I can't wait to use it. I wish I could get my to be as open with anal sex as all the men here. We used to be before kids and that was almost 14 years ago. Oh well, I'll keep hoping.

    I see that Tantus released a new bullet - using the 80mm from the rocks off range. That really intrigues me! The dildo itself looks too huge though, it's the tsunami. Could the 80mm from your current rocks off toys fit in this?

    I wish they put the bullet on a string so you could pull it out more easily.
