Doesn't even work as advertised. Maybe this works for a few who have ideal conditions or maybe i got
a non-working product. I couldn't get the sound to ever transmit to the phone at all. Not even in a
pin drop silent room at 2am in the night. I wonder about people mentioning that others might hear
the gimmick unless you have the optimal sound to drown it out etc. That's just not true. Its so weak
that i couldn't hear ANYTHING even with the gimmick just 2 feet from my ear in a totally silent
I agree with members here who posted that its pretty low-tech and doesn't justify
the price at all, but I still wouldn't have cared about the price thing if it at least worked. I
contacted the creator and was treated apathetically and then given a replacement after much
argument, which turned out as weak as the one i returned to penguin. Maybe they just resent the same
Very unsatisfied with Penguin on this one. Its now just lying around in the new box as
arrived and will never be of use. What a waste of money. It is nothing but finicky junk and major

I saw it and thought "ok nice let's buy it, it's fun" and I saw the price...99dollars... when it
worth maybe 30 ... without me... don't buy it and wait until the pricing get reviewed, if not you
can find the secret easily and make the gimmick in better quality for few dollars.
maybe more than 1 star but I don't believe people could genuinly have given 5 stars... some reviews
are fake so I wanted to correct it a bit.

Way way way over priced. About $10 worth of material with fancy box. I felt i got scammed.

To be confident in its use, you need the perfect level of distraction noise. Just enough to cover
spectators from hearing the voice real time, yet just under the amount that would drown out the
voice production in the playback recording.
There are sleeveless ways to use this, but it
appears a bit more unnatural and I won't use it that way.
When you can pull it off, it is
hard hitting, but I hate going into a situation wondering maybe.......
I would pass on this
product based on practicality/price.

I hardly ever write reviews, mostly because the effects I buy are not practical in the real world.
EVP, however is one of the best magic products I've ever purchased.
The gimmick is
extremely well made and comfortable. The method is perfectly natural and easy to do. There are no
noise issues and zero angle restrictions.
Setup will take you maybe 2 mins and you're ready
to perform all day and night. 5 second reset. You do need a smartphone as the ad copy says. Keep in
mind this is not an app you download and you do not have to set their phone up at all.
instructional video gives you every bit of info you will need along with additional tips, an uncut
critiqued performance, and trouble shooting tips.
The recording is on your spectator's
phone and they keep it. It's a real recording. This effect is so incredibly strong, so I really hope
anyone who buys this does not use it immorally. Just be aware that your spectator may be going
through some difficult times and the act of hearing a voice from a 'spirit' can trigger strong
You are going to scare the crap out of people with this - it's really that good!

Playing it in a quiet situation is completely impossible and the price isn't fair.That why I gave

This is so great, I have had watched it several times before buying it , the idea is just like I
expected, but with a small change that made it such a great trick, plus he teaches everything that
you needed to know & other ideas to do with it . At the end he teaches with Tshirt so the gimmick is
more freely and much more comfortable, it became part of you, I just loved it , play with it wisely
& don't hurt people feelings, it's so strong and so powerful, your acting can help to make it so
dramatic & creepiest.

Its one of those tricks that will make you feel like ' ouch why I never think of that ? ' .. from my
point of view this trick has a very simple concept that had been built onto a special gimmick that
allows you to have a haunted message goes secretly into a borrowed cell phone ... you will never
believe how people will react .. it is just too realistic ... its quite negative for me though ....
First,you had to lie to the spectator that you are really talking to the dead ... Secondly,for me it
will ruin the trick if you tell them that its just a TRICK (if u tell that this is just a trick ,
then what is the magic then ? the magic is that you can make a secret message goes to the
spectator's phone ? looks awful though ) ,so neither lie to the spectator nor revealing that this is
just a trick will give a good consequence ... From my point of view , I would rather lie on them ,
so the trick remains unspeakable .. but you have to be deceiving people all the time ...

I hate giving this product a negative review. It was brilliant in conception, but has become so
unusable for the price tag I feel it is unethical to have been restocked. The phone needs
significant reworking after updates made years ago.. I purchased this two years ago and have only
been able to make use once after much frustration. Far better ways out there for this kind of

I have used this trick for a 60 member audience, it works just as well with a few people. The
reactions are strong, and priceless! The clicker could be a little quieter, but there is a
workaround I made, so it's not a big issue. This works in any language, and I can apply it in so
many situations. I'm creeping out my co-workers at my day job, and my wife's friends. I love how it
can be custom, to any 'conversation'.
