New Product Review: Behold...the SYN !
  • B MayfieldB Mayfield
    Posts: 2,077

    Simply put, the SYN (as in synergy) is a meticulously reconceived version of the most popular Aneros model of all time…the venerable Helix. The SYN demonstrates keen innovations for comfort and performance, with a striking aesthetic that one rarely sees in adult products. The SYN also represents the first in a series of models that will be designed with the assistance of user feedback (more on this later).

    The SYN is a gorgeous black and red, two-toned edition of the Helix, in shades reminiscent of the pages of the Aneros website. Even before the advent of the VICE, users had been clamoring for softer more comfortable massagers. From a design perspective the challenge had always been that a certain amount of rigidity was required for the proper pivoting action of the device and silicone alone was not up to the task…particularly in their smaller, thinner models. The solution, as it turns out, was a hybrid design utilizing two materials instead of one. The body, abutment arm and tab feature rigid styrene inner frames over-coated with a luxurious “Velvet Touch” medical grade silicone. High marks go to the Aneros designers for this alone, as the silicone is neither too soft nor too firm. In essence it is “just right” combining optimum comfort with enough firmness to assure proper performance.

    Inserting the SYN is smooth and effortless and it feels positively delicious! The prostate engagement is affirmative yet cushy, and the sensation is incomparable with any other Aneros model to date. You just have to experience it! The softer feel makes it great for “over-nighters” and those who enjoy wearing the Aneros out during the day. For many years I advised against such practices on account of the rigidity of the traditional Aneros units and the real potential for over-stimulation. The “Velvet Touch” silicone is a much kinder, gentler material that is perfect for such users and those who are into more extended sessions as well.

    The SYN features a newly designed abutment tab created in concert with user feedback. For years many users had complained about P-tabs that were too aggressive and pinched, poked and prodded. To eliminate these problems an “M and M” shaped tab was agreed upon. The result is a tab that has a softer focus while maintaining the required pivoting action and consistent perineal stimulation. In addition, the abutment arm’s hybrid structure yields an almost “spring loaded” feel. This Aneros has comfort written all over it!

    The SYN is very nimble, responding to the smallest contractions with alacrity. To achieve this the body of the massager was redesign just below the midline ridge with a wider, deeper contour. The result is a unit that is balanced to fall forward with greater ease. As with the VICE and other silicone products, the SYN should be lubricated copiously. (My personal favorite: KY liquid pre-lube with an application of KY on the SYN itself).

    REMEMBER: CARE MUST BE TAKEN TO AVOID ANY LUBRICANTS CONTAINING SILICONE AS THEY WILL PERMANENTLY DEGRADE AND DAMAGE THE SYN.

    The SYN is perfectly suited for use during intercourse or more “traditional activities” (where ejaculation is involved), where a firm yet comfortable massage is desired. The SYN is uniquely suited for a side-to-side wiggling motion (when lying on one’s back). Internally this produces the most divine sensations as the Aneros darts back and forth between both lobes of the prostate.

    In so far as the aesthetic is concerned, the SYN represents the highest point yet in terms of Aneros style and function. Sitting in the box the device looks like something suitable for framing! The overcoat application seems to have been gracefully applied, and the looped red handle and black abutment arm and tab evoke “ying and yang” imagery. When considered with the red dot on the tab, it’s somewhat reminiscent of the Super-O logo created by Rumel. Tis a thing of beauty!

    So what IS in a name? SYNERGY: the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations or agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of its parts. In the context of the Aneros SYN it’s about the use of several materials in order to build a better product. But at the same time the name encompasses a powerful new relationship between users and Aneros designers.

    The SYN is a terrific choice for new and advanced users alike.

    PROS:

    Great for users who like to “wear an Aneros out”, “over-nighters”, those who have experienced discomfort with other P-tabs and users who want an Aneros for intercourse.


    CONS:

    More expensive than the older models. P-tab engagement may be too subtle for some. Cannot use with silicone-based lubricants.

    HI Guys image,

    I was recently afforded the opportunity to get an early production model of the new Aneros Helix 'SYN'. I pretty much concur with all that 'B Mayfield' said above but I'll go ahead and give my take on some of those thoughts as well. First things first, the packaging follows the red & black color scheme with magnetic catch lids first introduced with the 'Tempo' model. This style is nicely appropriate for the upscale product contained therein. You could put this on your bookshelf tucked in with all your other nicely bound tomes and it would look right at home, classy packaging indeed.

    Now the meat of it. Upon first look in a side by side comparison with the original Helix one is likely to say "well they just dipped it into silicone and painted the handle, what's the big deal?" Well... there have been numerous subtle modifications made to the design.

    The first (and most obvious) the velvety feel of the silicone skin, I believe this is the same formulation as is used in the 'VICE' product line. I really love the feel of this material, perhaps even more than I love the polished stainless steel of the 'Tempo'. The silicone skin holds the Natural Jelly lube beautifully and after use cleanup is simple with warm soap and water, nice.


    The next thing I noticed was the head design is slightly more tapered on the sides (this makes insertion ever so slightly easier as the head pushes through the inner sphincter muscle) while the fore/aft profile remains the same as the original Helix.


    The next significant difference I noticed was the reshaped waist section, this Mistress is now wearing a slick silicone corset, making it narrower and more apt to seat more snugly in line with your inner sphincter muscle. I found this particularly pleasing as it allowed me more precise control of overall massager movement as compared to my original Helix model. It is also more comfortable, I wore it around my house whilst doing other tasks for a couple of hours, I found it so comfortable that I often felt like there was nothing there until I invoked a slight PC, rectal or sphincter contraction. I think a great deal of credit for that comfort level goes to the next two design alterations.


    In the past numerous users have complained about the "poking" nature of the 'dime' style P-tab, this has been changed. While the size (diameter) of the tab is about the same the edge profile has been significantly altered to a much more rounded profile, imagine a black M&M candy on the end of the abutment arm. The refined shape along with the resilient silicone surface coating makes for a much improved feel, which leads to the next significant design change.


    The new abutment arm is now very springy, with a lot of give to easily accommodated varying men's perineums. You can't call this new 'SYN' pokey like you could the original, when you now execute a contraction the tab only gently eases into the sensitive perineum area, no more poking like an amateur masseuse working on her first client. This Mistress knows how to sensually tease her man's perineum with each contraction/stroke. It is very soft and comfortable, perfectly suited to extended Anerosessions.

    If there is one con I can think of, it is that same flexibility of the P-tab arm. While I really like the less intense pressure this P-tab imposes, I am equally aware of some men's complaints that the P-tab of the original model didn't make adequate contact with their perineums. I suspect this may still be a problem for some men because the geometry of the P-tab/waist of both the new and the original 'Helix' is the same. If you weren't getting good contact with the original, you won't get any improvement with this model. For those men who really like a firm P-tab engagement you may find this new arm pressure underwhelming. Finally, the flexibility may make it easier for the P-tab to move off your 'sweet spot', this is not a problem for me because I've never found my spot anyway, but if you have one, you may need to monitor your massagers action to assure that it stays put.

    My overall evaluation is image image, Two thumbs UP, The Helix 'SYN' is an evolutionary refinement in the Aneros lineup of products. For years I have recommended the 'MGX' first, then the 'Helix' for newbies, this new model may change my thinking on that recommendation. I have also traditionally recommended that one not sleep with their Aneros in situ, but the comfort of this model makes me even want to try that option out. I think even the Pope could enjoy this SYNful indulgence (only for prostate health purposes of course image)

    Thanks for the thorough reviews! So any word on whether or not we can expect other current models to eventually get the "velvet-touch" update??

    Hello, Brian.

    The Syn looks like something I'll have to buy. As you know, I sleep with either the Eupho or the Vice (sans vibe) almost every night. The hard plastic of the Eupho can be pokey at the tab by morning, and the Vice always reminds me of how big it is. The Syn just might be the best combo of size, shape and materials.

    Best Regards,

    Dave

    This is all a mystery to me!
    Has it been released yet?
    If not, when is it to be released?
    How much will it cost?
    When can we see a picture of it so that we can actually visualise it?
    When can we order it?

  • This sounds like a fantastic step forward! I currently only own the previous helix, and have been enjoying it very much. Those of you that have tried the SYN as well as owning the older Helix, would you recommend this model as an upgrade to my current helix, or is it similar enough to what I have now that I might not notice much of a difference and find my money more wisely spent on something like the Vice?

    Yes, the Eupho is my preferred Aneros, so i d like to know if (and when) it is scheduled to be released in the Syn form before considering to buy the new Helix.

    Thanks in advance

    Any idea when it will be available in the UK, from a UK retailer?

    I know I can get it shipped from this website but the $40 shipping is pricey.

    All it really seems to have thats different is a silicone outer layer, which I can't imagine has any new differing effects. Am I missing something?
  • I will say that the advertising is a little vague, but from re-reading the "Helix Syn's" banner at the top of most of these pages and the review of it by B Mayfield and Rumel, from what I understand it is a redesign of the original Helix. So start at the bottom and work up... From what I've gathered is that the P-tab arm and the looped tail arm are more springy. This will allow the novice user an easier time at getting things started when using his untrained anal and pc muscles and for the advanced user it just makes things a little easier and more comfortable. The p-tab itself was changed from the being a flat hard plastic disc to now a M&M shaped p-tab. There are no sharp corners to dig when you're sitting and waiting for things to start but rounded full edges. The core of the p-tab is the rigid hard plastic we know (which I believe is the little yellow dot), the core is then wrapped in the firm yet velvet soft silicone for even more comfort. Going further up, the core of the aneros is again the hard plastic of the originals but the rest of the massager is that of the velvet silicone. The base has been redesigned with more of a longer sweeping curve but probably not as drastic as I'm making it sound haha. what I anderstand it will allow for easier action and it gives it more of a balanced feel. Also at the top of where your anal sphincter is it is given more girth, as to give a slight fuller effect but not to the extreme of say the maximus or progasm. And then the last is the very top where the sides have been tapered in order to create more of a point allowing for easier insertion. hope this helps I know that I am super excited b/c mine is on its way.

    [QUOTE=wontquit;47545]All it really seems to have thats different is a silicone outer layer, which I can't imagine has any new differing effects. Am I missing something? Haven't yet experienced the Helix-syn, up close and personal so this comment is based on my comparison of conventional Aneros toys with the all-Silicone Vice.

    The silicone surface 'feels' more 'sensual.' It interfaces with lubricants differently when compared to a toy made of a hard surfaced plastic. Even though the Silicone Vice doesn't seem to compress much when squeezed in one's hand, it offers a more, animal-like conformity with my insides.

    I'd expect much the same from the 'syn'

    What a beautiful piece of art. It is really beautiful!

    I'm actually surprised at how 'springy' the P-Tab arm is. I was not expecting it to have so much give.

    I'll let you know my opinion on the little toy later on today or tomorrow. Can't wait to be taken for a ride. ;p

    In my experience with the Vice I'd say it depends on your lube choice. When I only use KY with the Vice it can get uncomfortably pinchy because the KY is repelled by the silicone. When I first coat the Vice in vaseline and then prelube some KY things become nicer, but somehow the KY and Vaseline (or maybe even also the dishwashing soap I use to clean it) combine into a weird layer on top of the surface of my Vice that needs to be rubbed off by hand. The rubbings worry me sometimes, I suppose they reveal the velvety texture of the Vice, but maybe I'm just making it thinner and thinner :)

    Based on a short, first use, I'd say the Syn should be viewed as a new product, rather than an incremental improvement to the Helix.

    The first impression I had is how little you notice its pressence. The p-tab arm is very springy and the tab itself larger. The combination adds a lot of comfort. The coating adds warmth and seems to retain lubrication better than the plastic models. Once things get going It is apparent this one really likes to move around. The new shape seems to enhance it's ability to seek out the right spot.

    It's so good, that I'd venture an opinion that this should be the direction for all new Aneros products.

    Xileh
  • You hit it on the head. I just got mine at 2pm and tried it out for about 4 hrs. First I must say I had A LOT of distractions unfortunately, but the syn felt amazing. It really is excellent at retaining lube and I completely agree with the idea of a line synergies for every massager. It really does have the potential for a lot of movement, but with an almost skin on skin feel from the inside. This creates a elegant smooth touch or feel.

    On a similar note it would be neat if they would do an S2 line of all the massagers, mgx, helix, eupho...

    Now I must say that everything feels great especially the p-tab, but the looped arm that goes towards your tail bone was bothering me just like it has on all of the other massagers but just not as bad this time. I'm wondering if aneros left that part plastic on purpose because they know some people will want to modify them? As of right now I really want to but just really worried about cutting into this baby.

    had my session last night with helix syn. the p-tab tab being more flexable hit the sweet spot. i did not have to do much work at contracting my sphinster muscles. the syn provided a wormy motion that massaged my prostate to no end. my penis stiffened and relaxed invountarly with more pre-cum then i had with other aneros massagers. the syn seems to hold the lube better. the redesign and adding the silicone texure did it for me.

    Incredible first ride here too.

    Despite looking like a standard Helix, the design and contours of this model allow for very different performance characteristics. The neck is thinner and more gently contoured such that it has mobility more akin to a Eupho and this with the springy P-tab allows for a much greater depth of travel during involuntaries over a wider range of pivoting so that there's less "poking" of your gland inside. Then the head is thinner for easier insertion and comes to a sharper focus anteriorly so that it engages the sulcus of the prostate more positively, but here also, made with the softer material, provides less "poking" during strokes and more comfort during longer rides.

    For me, all this produced longer, more positively controlled orgasmic buildups with screaming peaks I've not felt with any other model. Truly a lot of fun for a guy patiently going through menopause with his wife during those long intervals she's not in the mood.

    The Helix Syn is sinfully delightful. I shall place in point form my thoughts:

    1) Comfortable- For me, this model fits like a glove. While inserted it is like it is barely there.

    2) Movement- I'm usually a shea butter/coconut/walnut oil kinda guy. Today I used the Astroglide Naturals water based lube. The Helix Syn moved effortlessly. The new taper allowed for a more aggressive engagement on my prostate, yet it was so subtle, and soft.

    3) Massage- Like I mentioned, it moves so well, as if it is gliding on autopilot. This created an amazing massage for me. Slowly teasing me into ecstasy. The build up of my orgasm was like slowly climbing a mountain, knowing the view from the top is so worth it. The gentle soft stokes were like nothing I've experienced. So velvety soft.

    4) P-Tab- Digging the new tab. My original Helix has a tendency to spin on me, if skin contact is not always present. Spasms will push it away from time to time and as it is drawn back it twists. The original also didn't hit my sweet spot exactly right. The new Syn model was 'electrifying' right out of the gate. Within minutes I knew it was hitting my sweet spot, and seemed to return to my center almost 95% of the time. I love the new tab, and the new feelings it is providing.

    I've only used it once, and these are my first initial thoughts. It was a fantastic massage session. I think this maybe my go to toy for a while. I'll update later on how I feel after using it a good bit.

    Hello, all.

    When I got home from a business trip today I found the Syn in my mailbox. That was reason enough to take a 30-minute "nap" before the usual evening activities. I cleaned out, lubed up the Syn and inserted. My dick immediately became half-hard. I lay flat on the bed to start but the handle hit the mattress. I pulled my knees up tight to get some lift and the Syn started to auto-fuck me. After a few minutes I switched to laying on my side. The P-waves were intense.

    Although the Syn resembles the Helix, it feels completely different. Helix gives me P-waves, mini-Os and dry-Os in rapid succession, leading to a 30-second Super-O, all within 15 minutes, then nothing. Reminds me of sex with my second wife, which is probably why I don't use Helix anymore. Syn, on the other hand built slowly and steadily for 20 minutes to a Super-O without any mini or dry-Os along the way. The nice thing was that the Super lasted for at least 5 minutes. Then, the P-waves started again. Unfortunately, my nap time was over.

    I'll give Syn a sleep-over tonight. Stay tuned.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Hello, all.

    OK, I did the Syn sleep-over last night. The bedtime session went fine and I slept well after. The only difference I noticed between sleeping with Syn and Vice or Eupho is, it woke me up about a half hour before dawn, inside a Super-O. I usually wake up at dawn and start the morning session after visiting the bathroom to pee. So this morning I let the Super-O run its course, then got up to pee. I didn't have any trouble re-starting the session.

    BTW, the lube system I used on Syn was Vaseline covered with Walnut Oil, which is good for you. The Vaseline is not absorbed, but the oil is.

    The only remaining question I have about Syn pertains to using it during intercourse. Wife and I will try that tomorrow night or Monday night.

    I did cut the curly part of the tail off before I went to bed last night. It's now only about 1.25 inches long.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    PS. I've tried sleeping with Helix and can't get a good night's rest with it. Problem is, it wakes me up every 2 or 3 hours to play. That, and the Syn's comfy P-tab are the big points of differentiation for me.

  • Very excited about Helix syn. I've had the most success with the Helix (I own one of everything except the first-gen models), but the rigid plastic and aggressive design can easily overstimulate / leave me feeling sore. The syn should fix that, and have a more pleasant texture. The p-tab improvement is also promising.

    Anyone know the release date? I thought it was going to be released yesterday, but it's still listed as pre-order.

    I'd like to see a review from one of the forum vets once it's sent out.

    Helix SYN

    It’s my opinion that you need, not one, but two of these little beauties!

    I’ve been using the SYN for a couple of weeks now and I have found that contrary to the advice of the experts, you can’t leave the SYN in place overnight unless you plan on staying awake all night. It simply won’t allow me to sleep! If I have a session on retiring at night, I am in constant orgasm mode for the full term of the session. For me, that is usually about two hours. I simply can’t last being in constant orgasm for more than two hours without a break. Even if I come down from orgasm, I still can’t sleep with the SYN on board. It keeps demanding that I return to orgasm.

    This means that if I retire at about 11PM, I have to remove the SYN at about 1AM in order to get my required dose of sleep. On waking at about 6AM, I am already in body-buzz mode and craving for the SYN to be in place. Assuming I have the second one prepared the night before, it is simply a matter of inserting it (with essential lube) and I am off on an early morning session that will run until about 8AM or whenever I get up.

    Unless you are prepared to clean up and prepare your SYN for the early morning session prior to 6AM, you really do need a second one on standby. At least that’s my experience!

    If it works for me I think having two is a very good idea. The benefits would far outweigh the costs. I often have two session of a night and having to re-clean what I use for the new session is a challenge when half asleep and cold. **
    I am very much in the prewire stage and have high hopes, but will keep my expectations down so as to allow the Aneros to "call the tune". The *Helix-Syn is available in Australia as price just marginally more than in the US, registered postage included in the price! I am not sure if I am allowed to give my suppliers name in the Forum.

    As a very recent arrival in the Aneros Forum and a very new Aneros user, I am glad I have begun with the Aneros Helix Syn. I began using it Sunday evening nearly a week ago following the directions of lubing myself up before hand. I was amazed at how easily it inserted into my rectum.

    I had purchased the MGX, Helix, and Progasm models last December. But they had sat for months unused out of fear and trepidation. I had never used a "toy" for anal play ever before in my life until last Sunday night. I am so glad the Helix Syn made it so much easier for me. I am looking forward to my third session with this model of the Aneros later today in the evening. I can't wait :-) Also I am going to start blogging about my Aneros experiences very soon under the blog title "Gradus ad Parnassum."

  • Dear Big Glans (Luv that name!)
    Welcome to the Aneros club. I have all the models you mentioned you have except the new SYN. I can't afford to spend anymore and am more than satisfied with what I have. Be sure to try them all. They may have subtle, and maybe not so subtle, differences, but I find them all fantastic. If you have any anal experience at all you should have no trouble inserting them and enjoying them. You are correct that it takes time to get increased pleasure, which differs for each person, but it is so well worth the patience. Happy flying. Thanks for the reference to the enjoying masturbation site. I will check it out.

    Welcome to the Aneros club. I have all the models you mentioned you have except the new SYN. I can't afford to spend anymore and am more than satisfied with what I have. Be sure to try them all. They may have subtle, and maybe not so subtle, differences, but I find them all fantastic. If you have any anal experience at all you should have no trouble inserting them and enjoying them. You are correct that it takes time to get increased pleasure, which differs for each person, but it is so well worth the patience. Happy flying. Thanks for the reference to the enjoying masturbation site. I will check it out.

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for your kind welcome to the Aneros Forum! I am enjoying myself very much here.

    But perhaps you and some other member can help me with directions for creating a new blog here on Aneros site. Somehow my efforts are not bearing fruit!

    Just a heads up that the Helix Syn is in stock at Lovehoney in the UK, at £49.99 with free delivery the price seems comparable to Aneros.

    Rats! It'll have to wait. I blew this month's "recreation" budget last month.
  • Wish I could afford one. I'm on a very very tight budget right now, unfortunately.
    If it was possible to trade-in my SGX for credit towards the purchase of a Syn, I would buy it....

    Pareidolia,
    I have been experimenting with the use of Vaseline (with KY gel as a prelube) and shea butter (also using KY gel as a prelube).
    Like you, I have found that using Vaseline leaves a residue on the tool, which must be rubbed off by hand. I don't think this has had any adverse effects on the SYN but I'm wondering if the Vaseline (being petroleum jelly) is reacting with the silicone of the tool.
    I have found that using Vaseline on the SYN actually doesn't seem to work as well as shea butter. Maybe this is another reason for using shea butter as my preferred lube.
    Would be interested to know if anyone else has tried Vaseline and found similar problems.

    I use a thin coat of vaseline as well and have found the same residue. It takes a wash cloth to remove it. The silicone coating does not seem to require as much as the other models. I plan on trying it without the vaseline. It seems to require much less lube in general and almost disappears it is so comfortable. I'd like to see the same treatment applied to the Eupho!

    Xileh,

    I'm well and truly with you, Brother.
    I would love to see a "Eupho SYN".
    Would be simply magical.
    How about it Aneros?

    First-ride review: Wow! Toy is more 'gentle' than Helix and seems to 'float.' Masochistic guys beware, the floating p-tab lacks the 'stern nature' of the stock Helix. As a result it 'melted' into my body very quickly. Tail wasn't an issue in any body position (used small lumbar pillow). :D

    Lube: Vaseline on donut and tool -- two of Xochi's 2ml bullets as pre-lube. (Thread -- http://www.aneros.com/forum/showthread.php?13756-Shea-Butter-Suppositories -- my version, Shea Butter & Coconut Oil, 2:1 ) One bullet might be sufficient.

    Thoughts on residue issue: My solution to residue on the Vice is to bathe the toy in the dishwasher once a month. I'm not sure how the -syn's red plastic would respond to that and am not anxious to test mine. I like the 'washcloth scrub' idea, perhaps with Dawn detergent.

    enjoy .... rook

    Just got up from an 'overnighter' with -syn.   Despite a generous lube with Shea+Coconut I had dried out anally and had a bit of irritation this morning.   (Compared to others in the Forum I tend toward anal dryness.)

    Suggestion:  If you tend to run dry, suggest a thin coat of Vaseline around the base and you should do quite well for an overnighter.  Think that the smoothness of the -syn tends to be a bit deceiving ..... nice quality !   ... rook

    Hello guys, would the Syn be okay for a Newbie like myself to use? I am looking to make my first ever purchase and start my 'journey' i must say she does look pleasing to the eye! I live in the Uk and see that Lovehoney stock her.

    I think it's an excellent model to start with, Zang. The helix is often recommended as a good starting model for "bold" first timers, and the syn is a very similar shape, except with the more comfortable silicone. I say go for it.

    Many have regarded the Helix as the ultimate Aneros in that it accommodates new, intermediate and experienced users.    The SYN is a more upscale version of the Helix, with improvements for comfort and action that may indeed be of particular benefit to the newbie.    A great starter, no question about it.  

    Cheers,
