Buzz Magnets

You've heard the "buzz" about these magnets... now create your own. Just toss these super strong magnets into the air and when they collide, you hear a buzz! The magnets are made out of highly polished hematite. Just separate the two magnets from each other and throw them in the air. As they come together the magnets twirl, spin and vibrate to create a most unusual sound. Recommended for children ages 6 and up.

WARNING! Playing with these magnets is addicting. Once you start it's next to impossible to stop. Your co-workers will ask to be relocated to another part of the building. Oh sure, it's just an amusing "buzzing" sound at first, but then you're hooked. You'll toss them in the air thousands of times just to get the "perfect" buzzing sound. Then it's onto the table tricks and more head-on collisions. Stop the insanity!

What's Included?
  • You'll receive two highly polished hematite magnets 

The black magnets have an ultra smooth finish, but they are not indestructible. The magnets will break if dropped on a hard surface.

How Does It Work?

Just separate the two magnets from each other and throw them in the air. As they come together the magnets twirl, spin and vibrate to create a most unusual sound.

Not much fun. Review by Terry Tse

They do make some sound when they make contact but not that audible. The novelty wears off quickly. (Posted on 3/10/13)

  • How are these different than the singing spheres?
    Apart from the obvious difference in shape, the buzz magnets and the singing spheres have different pitches and sounds when they collide in the air.  There are also a range of different experiments that can be done with the two.
  • Do they break easily when they hit each other?
    No, they don’t break easily.  However, this does not mean to go about slamming the two magnets together but they are designed to withstand the experiments that they are designed for.
