Novelty earbuds are a dime a dozen; there are just a lot of them available, catering to the many tastes of different people. Some are devoted to comic book heroes, cartoons from childhood, or even food items. Fancy’s Magic Pencil Earbuds make use of this freedom in theme to go in completely different direction, humor. Owning a pair of these novelty earbuds will probably draw a number of odd looks and questions. One of which is possibly a joking “Why do you have a pencil stuck through your ears?”
Fancy’s Magic Pencil earbuds deliver surprisingly clear sound in a small, compact form. Putting them on and taking them off is a breeze when it’s to commute or travel to one place from another, since it only weighs a total of 11 grams (about 0.39 ounces). From a listening perspective, it delivers decent performance with a frequency response range from 15 Hz to 20 kHz and an in-ear design that cancels out some of the noise from your surroundings, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the music coming through your earbuds.
The Magic Pencil earbuds are compatible with a large number of devices. Most smartphones, tablets, and computers (whether PC or Mac) fall under the compatibility list. You should have very little problem in the area of compatibility anyway, since that is mostly determined by the type of jack an earphone or headphone has. This one, thankfully, is outfitted with a 3.5mm stereo jack, the type of jack the music industry has come to expect as a standard. A 1.2 meter length of cord allows the user a comfortable freedom of movement with the earphones on, a feature that you really start to notice while making your way around town and having to place yourself in a number of positions not really optimal for music listening.
Whether you buy the Fancy Magic Pencil earbuds out of curiosity or necessity doesn’t really matter. Be sure to ready yourself at the number of people who will eventually take interest in your earbuds. It’s a bit surprising to see someone with a pencil stuck through their head, especially when you’re in a hurry.
