Spectrespecs were large, colourful spectacles that were given away free in an issue of The Quibbler in 1996. They were described as making their wearer look like a "demented, multicoloured owl."[1] They made wrackspurts, (invisible creatures that floated through one's ears causing their brain to go fuzzy), visible to the wizarding eye, according to Luna Lovegood.[2]

Luna Lovegood wore a pair of Spectrespecs on the train ride to Hogwarts in 1996. Her unusual appearance was part of what led Romilda Vane to tell Harry Potter that he ought to ignore his friends and come sit in her compartment instead. However, Harry refused.[1]
