My Experience With ZALO Queen Set
First ImpressionsZALO’s products are some of the most innovative and extravagant toys on the market, but their tendency to jam in as many features as possible is usually their downfall. So while the Queen Set fit right in, I was hoping for a more refined experience than with some of the other toys in their Legend Series. While most of what the Queen offered was familiar to me, it was the new PulseWave technology that had me most intrigued. Located in the center of the tip’s radiating circles, the small bead here is then able to pulsate in and out of the toy to provide a tapping sensation, a type of stimulation I’d previously only tried externally.
Trying It OutInserting the toy is easy due to its slim shape, and the slight curve matched with a rigid shaft allows it to quickly find my g-spot. I could happily use it this way without even turning on the vibrations, to be honest, but when I do things get even better. Sadly, however, despite offering a whopping 16 modes (8 for each motor), only two steady speeds are provided, and as someone who doesn’t enjoy patterns this was a real let down. Plus, this combined with the overall buzziness of the vibrations, makes this, whilst still pleasurable, not one of the best internal vibrators I’ve tried. As for the PulseWave function, unfortunately I haven’t enjoyed this one bit. Rather, I find it immensely uncomfortable, and kind of like an unpleasant itch you just can’t scratch. Instead, I’ve taken to using it directly on my clitoris, which I actually really enjoy, even more so than the vibrations in fact.
Using The SleeveTransforming the toy into a suction stimulator is super quick and easy, as the silicone sleeve just slides over the shaft. This works incredibly well, and while it is not the most intense clitoral suction I’ve ever felt, it is still absolutely enough to give me some stellar orgasms. As for using the vibrations at the same time, this isn’t as effective, with the motor simply being too far back in the toy to make much of an impact.
ZALO Remote AppI first reviewed the ZALO Remote back in March 2019 and named it as one of the worst sex toy phone applications available, so you can imagine my surprise upon downloading it again all these years later and finding that it is exactly the same. Extremely basic in design and full of bugs, the app fails to provide effective control of the toy. I’m not able to use the two motors individually, as the instructions state you can, nor can I control them outside of their preset patterns to allow for more flexibility than the buttons offer (you can, at least, adjust the speeds of these). What’s more, the ZALO Remote doesn’t provide one of the core features of other popular sex toy apps, which is long distance play through internet connectivity.
As with all of ZALO’s products, the Queen is of exceptional design, with a Cleopatra-inspired appearance that is both regal and elegant, words not often used to describe a vibrator. Coming in your choice of Jewel Green, Wine Red, or Twilight Purple, ridges are used to full effect around the Queen’s handle, whilst a gold snake-like band ending in a SWAROVSKI crystal further adds to the sense of luxury. Moving down, the slender shaft then curves slightly for enhanced G-Spot play, before ending in a flat tip featuring circular ridges and a hollow center, which is where the PulseWave occurs. When applied, the matching silicone sleeve only enhances the design, with its edges helping to emphasize the detailing on the handle.
Ease of Use
ZALO provides two methods of controlling the Queen, the app (described above) and two buttons which are hidden on either side of the gold band. Pressing the button closest to the insertable end will place the toy into stand-by mode, which is needed when connecting the toy to the app or using the heating function, and you can cycle through the toy’s pulsations by continuing to press this. The other button will then activate the vibrations, with the two motors able to be used separately or together. Finally, to turn the toy off, just hold down the original button for three seconds. This all functions smoothly, so the biggest challenge is remembering which button does what (and where they are!).
The Queen Set features the same exceptional quality I’ve come to expect from ZALO, using high quality materials and advanced features. The only real flaws are the seams that run around the length of the silicone, however these are very faint and do not affect use. Additionally, the metal charging prongs on the back are quite sharp, and while these are too far up to be inserted, they can make holding the toy more difficult.
Being a luxury product, there’s no denying that the ZALO Queen Set is on the pricier side of things. But for an award-winning vibrator from a high-end brand, it is about standard, and that’s before you even begin to consider all of the Queen’s additional features, such as its suction sleeve, app-compatibility and heating function. Purchasing the Queen without its silicone attachment does significantly reduce the price, which may be good if you have no interest in the suction sensation this element provides, but I think it’s worth the extra cost.
A full charge of the Queen will give you up to two hours of use, which is excellent. It then performs well without any issues, and despite its dual motors it is actually surprisingly quiet. Even when combined, the two vibration styles only give off a small amount of noise (which gets even quieter when fully inserted), and so while someone in the same room as you could certainly hear it, you should be alright behind closed doors.
ZALO’s packaging is some of the best there is, and the Queen Set is no different. Taking inspiration from Cleopatra, matte black card helps to emphasize the detailed artwork and writing printed glossy gold ink, whilst clear plastic allows the toy to be seen in all its glory prior to opening. Inside, you’ll then find all accessories stored together in a smaller box, and included is a luxury storage bag, charging cable, detailed instruction manual, warranty card (which feels like a credit card and offers a 1 year warranty alongside a 10 year commitment), two sample packets of ZALO’s water-based lubricant, and the silicone sleeve. Finally, the toy and sleeve both feature safety seals, so you know they haven't been tampered with.
Materials and care
The ZALO Queen is made up of a high-quality silicone, which is both body-safe and non-porous, and then coated in ZALO’s Softek to ensure the surface feels silky smooth. Detailing near the handle of the toy is then comprised of ABS plastic, whilst metal charging prongs rest on the back. Completely firm, the only elements of this toy with any give are the top of the handle and center of the PulseWave plate. In terms of care, the lack of waterproofing on the Queen presents one of its biggest challenges, and so I’d recommend just carefully wiping it down after use. The silicone sleeve, however, may be fully submerged if required. In addition, make sure to not use any silicone-based lubricant with this toy, as it may affect the silicone it is made with.
The ZALO Queen Set’s special feature has to be its self-heating technology. Controlled by an additional hidden button at the top of the toy’s handle where the ZALO logo is, this can be turned on whenever the Queen is in stand-by mode. A LED indicator under the button will begin to flash slowly during heating, and the temperature will rise quickly until it reaches a maximum of 107° Fahrenheit / 42° Celsius, with a press of any button canceling it. While it’s the middle of summer where I am, making this a little too hot for comfort, I think it’ll be a wonderful addition to the product in winter.

The ZALO Queen Set can do a lot of things. Sure, it wasn’t the best G-Spot vibrator or suction stimulator I’ve ever tried, but just the fact that it could do both of them, let alone really well, is a stroke of genius. Plus, when you consider the price of the typical (or even budget) suction toy and G-Spot vibe, you’ll quickly realize how great a deal the Queen Set actually is. The biggest disappointments here are the ZALO Remote App (which I’d still like to believe they’ll update, but after 3 years I’m starting to lose hope) and the lack of waterproofing, but for my own personal use they have been minor. Overall, this is definitely the toy to buy if you’re looking to save by spending big on one core product now, rather than more over time on multiple. Plus, with a versatile design and luxurious appearance, the ZALO Queen Set also makes the perfect gift.
