Worth Shelling out forThis is an impressive cock ring. The vibrations are strong and rumbly, while being very quiet. It fits comfortably and is made of stretchy silicone and should fit most men fine. It's got to be among the top tier of vibrating cock rings. The only downsize being the 3hr charge time and short use time;20-30min on a charge.
Great quality toy overall.
I chose the seashell over the other more traditional options of the E1 & E2, not just for the aesthetics, but because it also seems to me like it would make better contact with the clitoris and is slightly larger with nice rounded edges. This is the ideal toy for grinding with your partner. It fits like a glove in that respect.
The stretchy ring can be worn around the shaft or both shaft and balls, but comfort and fit will depend on your sizing. For me personally, I think it will work just fine on the shaft. I think it might be a bit tight to wear around both.
Honestly, I was apprehensive about spending this much on a vibrating cock ring, but after reading Travel Nurse and Nurse Katie's excellent reviews on the E3, I was sold. BTW, both these ladies do excellent reviews on EF and are among my favorites to read. My GF and I have tried a few of these type toys with mixed results. From the cheapo small free throwaway EF ring to high powered corded models with vibrating bullets. Having high power without the cords will be a nice change of pace.
After our first experience with a big ticket vibe Liv, I decided to splurge on some expensive toys that will get lots of use. Quality is definitely better than quantity. Not to diss cheap toys, because there are some good ones too.
The ring is stretchy and could fit around a small wrist if stretched to the max, so it should fit any man comfortably. The seashell portion is slightly squishy too, but transmits vibrations excellent.
The E3 is waterproof, so you can take it in the shower for playtime too. You can wash and rinse without care, but I wouldn't drop it in water to boil. You could dunk it and hold it if you must and keep the charge port from being submerged completely, to be safe (or maybe even put electrical tape over the opening?). I don't feel the need to bother with that, since it is not being inserted anally or anything.
The ring stretches to fit just about anyone and is comfortable to wear. It is also comfortable for the female to grind on, with no sharp edges. It is a bit bigger than most photos make it appear and that is a good thing. Having more contact room for the female is a good thing.
This one also has the option of being worn over/around the penis and testicles if you so choose, which is nice to have the option of both.
The ring is 1.5" unstretched and can go to about 3" fully stretched. The toy itself is 3" tall.

The Ego e3 comes with a USB charging cord, but if you have an adapter you can plug into a wall outlet (I use one I got with my MP3 player). Once it is plugged in to charge, the LED indicator light will Light up. Once the e3 has finished charging, the light will turn off. It takes approximately three hours to fully charge.
There is a button top of the shell to turn on/control the vibrations. You have to hold it down to change speeds, unlike some other vibrators, where you just push for each level. With the E3 you just hold til you get the desired level of vibration. The button illuminates as well when pressed.
Press once to turn on/off.
Press and hold to vary speeds.
Press 3 times fast to lock/unlock for travel.
The E3 is impressively quiet, even on full blast. Great for those wanting discretion or just less distracting noises when using a vibrating ring.
When charging the light stays on til it is fully charged and then goes off. It takes about 3 hrs to charge and gives you about 30 min use time. That is about the only bummer with this thing.
Here is a picture of my USB adapter so you can just plug the E3 into a regular socket.
Blue light glowing when turned on.
The only negative about the material is silicone draws lint and dust, but this is no worse than most any other silicone toy I have used in that regard. However, because they give you a storage box, this is a non issue. Alternately, you could use a baggie or pouch to store it.
Cleaning is easy. Just wash in soap and water or use a toy wipe after sex. It is not recommended to use Silicone lubricant with silicone toys of course, because it can degrade the material. You can however do a spot test at your own risk.
Ego E3 is great for beginners or advanced players alike and will make you regret ever buying cheap vibrating cock rings.

The box is a nice black cardboard box with the Ego logo imprinted in an understated way, almost as if it were a small cigar gift box. Inside with the E3 there is a an instruction pamphlet and charger. It looks very classy and is a convenient storage solution.
Last night it dawned on me how the E3 could be used for other pleasurable needs.
For solo or partner play this could be attached to a glass or other dildo to add vibration and clitoral stimulation for masturbation play. Alternately, a man could wear it around the glans area for penile stimulation. It could be worn reverse around the cock and balls to stimulate the perineum or testicles during masturbation.
-It could even be used as a stand alone clit massager.
She tends to need pinpoint vibrations on her clit directly and under the hood at that, so it may take a little practice to get this one to make her climax, but she definitely enjoyed the sensations, both on top and bottom.
I know from past experiences, that this would probably get a majority of women to climax within minutes, so if it is a toy you have been eying, don't hesitate to get one. I can live with the 3 hr charge time and USB port charger (can plug in with adapter), but my only small gripe is that the vibrations only last 30 min. 30 min is enough for most occasions though, but you will need to charge it after every use basically. The small time is offset by just how powerful the vibrations are. I'd easily compare them to our Liv vibrator, but in a smaller package and form.
This will easily rocket to the top of our most used toy list.
