    Holy crap! If you dangle your two little ear buds, the headphones that come with the iPods by default, they magnetize to each other!

    Isn't that bad to have in your ears so close to your head all the time?

    you do know how speakers work right? they are magnets that make the speaker cone vibrate back and forth pushing air and creating sound. I think this is the magnetism you are seeing. It's a super-weak attraction, and I wouldn't worry about it. When have magnets been shown to cause harm? Keeping the earbud volume too loud is more worrisome.

    Some people even wear magnetic rings and bracelets claiming they have healing powers. I think the idea is that it has something to do with iron in your blood.

    WillGTO is right. All speakers work using magnets. And no, magnets won't hurt you.
