Extase disappoints...again

While the vibrations are "rumbly" it's not something that ranks more than "moderately powerful" except if you're barely touching it. Louder than any toy I own, this is a huge disappointment that's not worth the money
Published:
Pros:
Really nice storage pouch; size and shape will be enjoyed by most; rumbly-ish vibrations
Cons:
Loud. Really, really loud. Louder than it is powerful. Overpriced.

Use

Zenith is primarily meant to be a g-spot vibrator but this style works well as a clitoral vibrator, too. I had assumed that if the vibration strength wasn't enough for my g-spot to care about it that I could at least enjoy this as a long-handled, rumbly clit vibe.

I was wrong.
    • Clitoris
    • G-spot

Material / Texture

Zenith is all plastic with the "PU Coat" (sounds sexy, doesn't it?) matte finish that gives it a silky, soft feel rather than the obviously-plastic shiny look that is the Extase Liberte. I quite like this type of finish on my plastic sex toys. It doesn't exactly provide any "drag" per se but it's not quite as slick as shiny plastic. Otherwise there's no texture.

The metallic-looking cap is also plastic which unscrews to reveal the battery compartment and also has the ever-present Extase homing beacon. At least this one has a purpose, it's the button. It is awfully bright, though.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

Zenith is marketed as a g-spot vibrator - a straight shaft with a egg-shaped bulbous end set at an angle. This style is fairly common and recognizable is "g-spot stimulator". I personally prefer my g-spot toys to have a more obvious curve to the entire shaft however I thought this could be overlooked in lieu of powerful, rumbly vibrations.

I was wrong.
(Sorry, I got sidetracked; watching Ron White's "Tater Salad" bit on Youtube proved to be more entertaining than this vibrator review and when I say "I was wrong" please read it to yourself in the voice of Ron White.)
Where was I?

Oh yeah. Zenith is, or could be, a very serviceable g-spot massager for many women but it wasn't for me. If the vibrations hadn't dulled so drastically when pressure was applied or it was inserted it might have been "ok". But the Zenith's bark is way worse than it's bite. And by bark I mean noise.

I wouldn't really recommend this as a prostate massager since there is no flanged base however it's pretty long (8 inches overall) and I've seen other prostate massagers similar to this shape/size/style. Any opinions from fellow reviewers on this aspect?

It is a nice looking vibrator, yes. It is not a luxury toy but it is a bit more classy than most. It's not discreet, in use or not.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Zenith is controlled by one single button that is pretty darn annoying. I can't tell you how many times I accidentally hit it and went from high-speed-and-noisy to annoying-pulsing-pattern-and-even-more-noisy. You then have to push the button to cycle through the other 3 cycles to get back to steady vibration. To turn it on you can't just click the button you have to press and hold for a second. To turn it off you have to press and hold the button for multiple seconds during which it may or may not change to another setting before finally turning off. For reasons unknown to me the LED light inside the push-button will blink a few times at you after it shuts off.

When I first received this toy weeks ago I tried to contact Extase to see if perhaps I had a defective product. Yes, it's that loud. It just might be the noisiest vibrator I own. It sounds like the motor is off-balance and rattling around inside its cage. Extase likes to use the weasel words "whisper quiet" (which is rarely true in vibrators) and that couldn't be farther from the truth. This toy is so loud that you couldn't even use it if someone else was in another room. With the door closed. Unless your walls are concrete.

The cap is easy to remove and put back on, it doesn't have the typical 180-degree or more twist to screw it back on, it's more like 90 degrees. Since the shaft and cap are triangular-shaped it's pretty obvious that you have it screwed on properly, or not.
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

It's plastic, it's a vibrator. Wipe it clean but don't submerge it. Use any type of lube you prefer. "Splashproof" means that if you orgasm and squirt easily your vibrator will likely still be safe, but please don't try to use it under water. Other than creating a temporary hot-tub-esque effect in the water, it would otherwise quickly kill the vibrator. I kid. About the hot-tub. It's not that powerful.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Extase packages their toys in nice, sturdy boxes good for long-term storage IF you don't mind that the box quite clearly gives away what is inside. At least with luxury companies that offer you a solid box for storage like Je Joue, Lelo or Nobessence their box is inside a sleeve or is otherwise discreet. The instruction manual and product catalog that come with this toy are basic and printed in many languages. The high point of Extase items is the storage bag: by far the best storage bag ever to come with a sex toy. It's not padded but it is made from a faux-brushed-suede material that is soft and attracts no dust/lint/fur, with a drawstring closure and a bead-like thing on the strings to actually keep the pouch firmly closed. I used the smaller one that came with the Liberte for travel jewelry storage and never had anything fall out.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

I tried to contact Extase, twice, to see if I had a defective product. After all, when one claims that their product is "exceedingly quiet" and I get something that's louder than my stick blender, I become concerned. For what it is - a battery-powered, simple g-spot vibrator - it is drastically over-priced. When you take away the "luxury" packaging and storage bag and look beyond the smoke and mirrors you'll find that there are a ton of g-spot vibrators out there that are very similar in size, shape and intensity at half the price (or less).

On the plus side I now own a $70 faux-brushed-suede 9" drawstring pouch. So I got that goin' for me.
Follow-up commentary
I've now tried every single email address I can find for Extase, and I cannot get a response. So their warranty? POINTLESS if nobody ever responds to you. I'm extremely disappointed with this company.
