I got a unit that doesn't work. It was not able to project any sound at all. I got an extremely weak unit or something is wrong. I know its a low volume device. But I got a no volume device. Even held the gimmick upto my ear and still no sound but a faint almost inaudible whisper. The control part works fine. But theres no sound.

I ordered from Penguin Magic. Waited for 2 weeks. Paid heavy customs duty and finally this. When I turned to them for help they refused to spend even a minute to assist. They refused to even listen, saying I didn't know what I was talking about. But when I forced him to listen, when all he was trying to do was cut me off, he finally relented and said to send it back in for a return.

This is the service we get for a product at this price. Given the simplicity of whats included, despite the grand packing and box. Flat out refusal to help whatsoever. I have informed them on the same day after receiving and trying it out.

Im trying to reach Alan Rorrison but there seems to be no response even after pming him and posting on threads here. He was replying promptly before I bought though. Does someone have his mail id ?

If you have a thrust worthy local magic shop , I suggest ordering from them instead , this will save troubles of shipping fees and products can be easily replaced ~ but unless there isn't a local store near you ... ordering from Penguin is quite a good choice ... From what I remembered their customer service is not bad ~

Actually they used to be quite good. Now I don't know what's become of them. My total order costed about $200. Out of which this effect was $99. I recieved it in this in the evening. Tried it for several hours, even holding the gimmick actually onto the target phones mic, still theres no sound carry over. Im sure that the principle involved needs at least some sound to be given out to be able to record onto the target phone. I got a unit that just doesn't produce any sound. Its so weak that holding the gimmick right to your ear you cant hear anything. With it pointing into your ear ofcourse. This is the issue with my gimmick.

To be frank its not such a handsfree and smooth method as its portrayed to be. It does have wires running down your body etc and has a very sensitive method that would likely not work everywhere. In simple words it is a finicky trick that can only be worked on certain occasions, but I'm willing to live with that and at least use it on some occasion where I might have a chance to for the blunder of picking it up. But expecting me to just keep a dud that they sent instead of sorting out the problem is untenable. Nobody from penguin or the creater is even replying or talking about it. All I did was honestly buy an original from the creator. So at least Café members now know what to expect in terms of support if you have a problem.

If you are not using IOS , there might be some issues with your phone or connection if the music is playing softly . I used to have a headphone which plays really softly on my android tablet and works fine on Steve Jobs's creation ~ But if everything fails ... I wish you good luck in getting a new set ASAP ~

Plainman007, have you tried to play any pre-recorded audio files such as a music file? Also, I know this will sound like a typical Windows tech support answer but check that your volume level is up too because after you plug in the device the phone will switch to headphone mode so the volume level changes. If after that it still doesn't work it's possible it is a unit that may need replacing.

Hi Amrit,

Yes I did try that too. And also checked volume settings after plugging in the jack because I do know that android remembers a different safe volume setting for headphones. No Luck.

Penguin are usually good at replacing faulty products . Unfortunately on mass productions the odd fault can slip through... And just to answer the "finicky" question. U can have this set on you absolutely sleeveless and load sounds acutely every time... With everything. Some practice is needed but give it thereafter it deserves and it will pay you back tenfold..

If there is any questions I can answer to make it work easier for u, feel free to pm me

Hi Alan, as I just pm'ed you. It is definitely a faulty unit. As there is zero. Or probably a fraction of human hearing sound that comes from the gimmick. But he keeps saying its a low volume device. Im not that naive in physics. If its directional and a phone mic can pick it up then the human ear when holding it right upto the ear at full volume should be able to hear it. There is near zero sound coming out of the gimmick.

The way this gimmick is designed is actually not that suitable for sleeveless though ~ I've tried a few times recording with the gimmick attached to my shirt . The sound is not as clear as when performed with sleeve , but still it works perfectly when in a not-so-noisy situation . So I elevated the volume of the original recording and found out it works fine .

Its not practical in certain situations. But it can be used well in certain situations, if and when the gimmick works properly that is. On stage might be ok. If your willing to wear it throughout the show.

Since getting the Pebble to use along side this I've found that I can set up very quickly to perform this since the main unit can just go into a pocket and I can use the pebble to do all the work.

I may have mentioned it earlier too but I found I also had to do what Magician560 had to do by elevating the volume of my recording at the source. I was originally recording the responses in a whisper and by the time they had been edited and copied to my phone I had lost a significant amount of volume level so even at max volume (on my phone) a spectators phone would barely pick up the responses. I then increased the level at which I did my original recording which helped resolve the problem - that way I could decrease the volume as needed in a quiet environment but in a louder environment with ambient noise I was able to put the volume up enough that a spectators phone could still pick up the responses clearly.

Just ordered this from alakazam then today, a day later I get an email saying that its out of stock and they will send one as soon as new stock arrives. WHY do companies not state that its out of stock on the website, penguin do, had I known I would not have ordered it. I will be contacting alakazam today about the matter, I have parted with my money and have NO idea when this will arrive.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

This is Typical Alakazam I have been caught to many times

I would call them and cancel and get from Saturn magic at least you know it's in stock and lower price !
