Lelo Sona Cruise Reviews

Lelo sona cruise black package

It is a common assumption that vibrators are designed to go inside you; however, there are some amazing products on the market designed for clitoral stimulation rather than vaginal penetration. One such innovation is the Lelo Sona Cruise. It is similar to the previous Womanizer and Satisfyer however; it’s designed to stimulate you via air.

This clitoral stimulator makes use of air technology as opposed to vibration to provide stimulation. Ultimately this means less numbness and irritation that often results from too much vibration. Furthermore, this technology delivers a deeper stimulation and more pleasure for longer. The air technology is effectively delivered by sonic waves rather than suction.

The Lelo Sona Cruise Review

The Sona Cruise is, in essence, a sonic massager that makes use of sonic waves instead of vibrations to provide stimulation. It’s a clitoral stimulator that is designed to reach more than just the outer parts of your clitoris. So it’s not just external but extends far beyond to the deeper parts of your clitoris. The sonic waves push back and forth, which create pulses that act on the clit. Ultimately these waves create a brand-new sensation that travels along the network of your clitoris nerves and goes deeper than any other vibrator and sex toy out there. The bonus is that it does not cause a numbing sensation or any discomfort at all.

Features of the Sona Cruise

It is shaped like an elongated and fat curvature. There’s an opening on one end, and this is designed to be placed over the clit. The curved design allows you to have a firm grip while allowing it to fit perfectly on your clitoris at the same time.

This toy comes in a variety of three colors, which is black, cerise as well as pink. The front of the vibrator is covered in silicone, which is ideal for people with sensitive skin. The back is coated with a shiny ABS plastic.


The entire vibrator is approximately 4.5″ x 1.9 x 2.2″ and has a weight of 116 g or 0.26 pounds.

It’s comfortable to use and easy to hold because of its small size, and ultimately this means no muscle strain in your arms or hands. It’s also perfect for travel, and you can chuck it right into your handbag without anyone knowing.

Sonic Waves

Traditional vibrators make use of well, vibrations. However, this Sona cruise makes use of sonic waves and pulses. So, therefore, it reaches the inner parts of the clitoris, not just the outer part. The sonic waves eliminate the common problem of soreness, numbness, and irritation that often results from direct vibrations.

Cruise Control Feature

The cruise control function is what sets the Sona Cruise apart from other vibrators as well as its predecessors. Ultimately this feature allows the motor to give off extra power when pressure is applied against the clit.

Waterproof Capabilities

The Cruise is fully submersible so for those who enjoy climaxing in aquatic environments; it’s perfect. Enjoy complete peace of mind in the shower, hot tub, or bathtub without worrying about whether your vibrator will be damaged. For some people, water intensifies the sensation. It’s also easy to clean and more hygienic due to its waterproof capabilities. So now there is no excuse not to have a thoroughly cleaned and sanitized vibe.


While it may not be subtle when it comes to noise levels, it’s not the loudest vibrator out there. However, you should note that when you press it against the skin, the noise becomes even louder. So if you have thin bedroom walls or live with other people, it’s best to use it under a couple of layers of blankets or perhaps when you are alone. While some people find the loud noise a hindrance, others don’t find it too disturbing.

Additional features

Something quite hilarious that happens to a lot of people when traveling with their sex toys is that it accidentally turns on and then you pretend that it’s not yours. However, you don’t need to worry about that happening with the Lelo cruise since it has a travel lock function. This makes it travel-friendly and ensures that it stays quiet in your bag or suitcase when you’re not using it. Essentially all sex toys should contain this function, and as a bonus the Sona Cruise does.

Lelo Sona vs. Sona Cruise

Perhaps the only difference between the Lelo Sona and the Sona Cruise is that the cruise function is fully automatic. Aside from that, they both look identical and perform precisely the same. The cruise control function reserves 20% off the power of the vibrator when used normally. When you apply pressure onto your clit with the vibrator, the motor begins to drop power, and the cruise function automatically kicks in to boost power and avoid a reduction in intensity.

So what does this mean? Ultimately, the cruise control function is designed to detect a slow-motion or movement of the motor and starts the motor again via pulse wave modulation. By doing this, the cruise control feature ensures that you enjoy the consistent intensity and power even while you press the toy family against your body. This is the one feature that the Sona does not have. Other than that, the Cruise and the Lelo Sona are not that much different.

How to Use Lelo Sona Cruise?

The Sona Cruise contains only three buttons, and this makes it really simple to use. You can press the plus button for three seconds to activate the toy but make sure not to leave the Cruise on your clitoris while you are starting the toy. The consequences of this are that the stimulation starts rather intensely.

You can use the plus and minus buttons to adjust the strength of vibration. If you want to try different patterns, you can press the () button to switch between a variety of eight vibration patterns. When you want to turn the toy off simply press and hold down the minus button for three seconds. It is advisable to charge the Sona for a full two hours prior to using it for the first time.

Charging the Sona Cruise

When you are ready to charge, simply insert the DC plug into the DC port which is at the bottom of the Sona Cruise and charge the toy with the provided USB cable. The LED indicator on the interface of the vibe will pulse while it is in charge. The process usually takes around two hours for the vibe to reach full power.

Once it’s fully charged, the LED indicator will show a steady glow. When the battery is running low, the Cruise will remind you. If you see it blink a white light that means your battery is low and it’s time to charge it. It is recommended that you only use the original charger provided with the Sona Cruise vibe.

Care and Maintenance

Since the Cruise vibe is waterproof, it’s easy to clean and maintain. It needs to be cleaned with warm soapy water before and after every use. This ensures that it remains hygienic and sanitary. The device should be washed and dried out thoroughly before and after use. There should not be any moisture on the device when you are storing it in the case. Although you may or may not choose to use lubricant with the vibe, it is advisable since the lubricant enhances the sensations. However, only water-based lube should be used because oil or silicone based ones can damage the silicone material.

How Does the Sona Cruise Feel?

If you find yourself wanting a little bit more pressure as you approach climax, then you’re not alone. You can often apply this pressure without the interference of any moving parts, which is a bonus. When you apply pressure, the cruise control feature will kick in and give the vibe a power boost. This ultimately takes you to an instant and glorious climax. The cruise control feature is unique to the Sona Cruise and is not available in any of the other Lelo products.

What You Should Know About the Sona Cruise

The Sona Cruise is basically a subsonic clit vibe that massages your entire clitoral area. So it’s not just what’s visible that is stimulated but also what cannot be seen. Instead of vibrating against your skin, it makes use of sound waves to create deep and satisfying waves of sensation. This gives you complete control so you can actually direct those time bending pulses to the right spots. So use it where ever feels the most incredible.

It also contains one of the smartest and sexiest designs that you ever have seen in vibrators. Made from body-safe silicone, it gives the user complete peace of mind and is also rechargeable, so you don’t need to carry around batteries. The fact that it’s 100% waterproof makes it easy to use in aquatic environments and also extremely convenient to clean. The Lelo cruise offers convenience and versatility in one tiny and sexy little vibe.

When using the Cruise, you place the tip of the vibe over your clit but not directly on it. When you turn on the vibe by pressing the plus button, you send pulses through the device, which then delivers the intense stimulation you feel. By pressing the plus or minus buttons respectively, you can increase or decrease the intensity.

In order to create a seal between your body and the Sona, a little bit of water-based lubricant is recommended. When it comes to direct contact, the sauna is perfect even for prolonged use. You can experience climax after climax in a way you have never experienced before.

What Previous Buyers Said

While the majority of users agreed that they enjoyed using the Sona Cruise, others thought that the sensations were a bit too intense. However, for those who enjoy deep rumblings sensations and intense pressure, this is ideal. For beginners who have never used clitoral stimulators before, this may be a bit too intense for your liking.

However, perhaps the only drawback of the Lelo Sona Cruise sonic clitoral massager is that it is extremely loud. There is no way that you can use it in a room with thin walls and not expect the sound to travel out. So it is advisable that you only use it when you are alone or try to muffle the sound under a few layers of blankets.

For those who enjoy coming quickly and intensely, this is the perfect pick. The majority of customers who brought it to experience the intense orgasms it delivers expressed that they enjoyed the cruise control feature as it gave them the right amount of power at the precise time they needed it.

The Verdict

The Sona Cruise is an exciting choice, and the introduction of the sonic wave technology makes it extremely unique. It’s made in the typical Lelo style; however, the technology used is innovative and sensational. While it may be a bit too intense for some women if intense is what you are after, then this is a perfect choice.

If you think that it is too powerful, then try using it on the lowest setting and see how it feels. Ultimately, it does come with eight different vibration settings and a variety of vibration strengths as well. So if you are a beginner or if you are using this for the very first time, consider lowering the vibration settings and take it from there.

While some women prefer using it directly on the skin, others prefer using it over their underwear. Ultimately, the sensation it provides in both cases is different but equally pleasurable. It all depends on your sexual preference. When it comes to learning more about the Sona cruise, Amazon customers have had quite a lot to say about it.

The vibe also comes with an instructional Lelo Sona cruise manual, so that you have all the information you need prior to using it. If you are looking for something different and unique on the market, then you definitely need to try this sonic charger.
