Classy Metal

If you're looking for something that's so quiet you can only hear it when it's stuck in your ear, but also strong enough to consistently deliver powerful orgasms, then look no further than the Little Chroma. Well worth the money if you're willing to splurge on it.
Obscenely quiet, powerful, replaceable motor, temperature play
One speed might not be for everybody and has to be on to be waterproof

extremely useful review


There are a few uses for this awesome little vibrator Designed for clitoral stimulation, the Little Chroma is also great for teasing the nipples, any part of the penis/sac, perineum, etc. You can also use it for light thrusting and stimulating the shallower of G-spots, or between a male and female during sex.

There's really nobody that this toy would be bad for. The vibrations are strong without being overwhelming, it's waterproof, and virtually silent. The only downsides to the Little Chroma is that it only has one setting and that it has to be on the entire time if you're using in an aqueous setting.

Material / Texture

Little Chroma is made of double anodized aluminum. It's nonporous and phthaltes free with a smooth, slick texture. If texture is your thing, you won't get anything from this, but the smoothness of the whole thing allows you to very easily create an awesome slippery texture with very little effort. There's no smell or taste whatsoever.

Another nice feature that comes with being made of metal is that the little chroma is great for temperature play. Warm it up in a warm bowl of water (make sure the battery cap is completely closed before submerging in any temperature water), or chill it in the fridge or a bowl of ice water.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

There's not much to the Little Chroma. It's about 5" long and 2 1/4" around. It fits very easily and comfortably in the hand, and its teeny tiny size makes it perfect for traveling. It's discreet in that it's not obviously a sex toy, but there aren't many more possibilities as to what it could be, so if you want to avoid answering questions, keep this little guy tucked away.

The little battery cap end features a convenient space for attaching a retrieval cord, or even a key ring, although I would avoid having this on your keys since to keep it off it has to be partially unscrewed and you could just end up losing the whole thing, which would really suck. On the other hand, having a key ring on the end of the toy could help sweaty or otherwise slippery hands open and close the battery compartment with ease.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Little Chroma is so easy to use, even the most beginner of toy users won't have a problem. It consists of the toy's housing, the battery cap, the replaceable motor, and 1 AA battery. If you unscrew the cap completely the battery and the motor both come right out, and slide back in just as easily. Spinning the cap the other way tightens it up and activates the vibrations. They'll be slightly loud at first as the battery and the motor rattle against each other, but once the cap is on completely it's almost impossible to hear.

According to JimmyJane, while there's only one speed; it's the right speed. They did some research that shows that most people would rather vary the intensity of the vibration rather than the frequency, so because of that the vibrations are stronger in the tip of the toy and are supposed to get weaker towards the end. I've found that the vibrations feel pretty equal down the whole length of the toy.

The vibrations aren't the strongest out there, but they're very effective all the same. They're of the very very quiet, low pitched, sort of rumbly variety. And seriously, my Blackberry vibrates louder.

The O-ring located on the battery cap does a superb job of keeping water out in the bathtub, shower, random puddle, or any other body of water you happen to want to use this bad boy in.

Care and Maintenance

Care and maintenance is obscenely easy. After each use, clean with mild soap and hot water. You could of course use your favorite toy cleaner as well, but no matter what you use, make sure that you're not going to get anything inside the housing if the motor is still inside. If you use Little Chroma a lot, you can just unscrew the cap enough to stop the vibrations, otherwise you should remove the battery during storage.

You can store this bad boy just about anywhere. In a drawer, in a sock, in a sock drawer, wherever. The finish is pretty durable and so long as you don't let it become the dog's new chew toy, there aren't many places you could keep it where it would get damaged. But you should still keep it in a drawer just to be safe.


Like all the rest of JimmyJane's products, the packaging for the Little Chroma oozes class. It's still not discreet because it says vibrator right on the front in a few different languages, but it would still be perfect for gift giving, and you could even keep storing your little chroma inside of it.

Press on either end to slide out the little box that holds the little chroma, as well as the instruction manual. It's very thorough and covers getting started, cleaning, more about the battery, more about the motor, replacing the motor, and safety notes.


I cannot believe how quiet this thing is! Still! It just baffles me, and everyone I've shown it to. Just utter amazement at how virtually silent this thing is, and how powerful it is for being so quiet. I like it best for clitoral stimulation, both with toys and while having sex with my fiance, although the hardness of the metal can get uncomfortable during partner sex with any kind of real weight behind it. It's one of my new favorites because I'll have it forever, and it finds a way to deliver strong orgasms consistently.

I definitely recommend it to anybody who's been thinking about it.
Follow-up commentary
You have no idea how much it pains me to say that I don't like this anymore, because it's really not that I don't like it, it's much more that I just don't use it anymore. The idea behind it is simply genius and I love that a ton, but the single speed just kills it for me and I end up not using it at all. If you think that the single speed won't be an issue for you, I do still highly recommend this for being a very well made piece of equipment that should last you pretty much forever.
