    A few days ago, I discovered that my headphones had become magnetized. They repel each other and stick to the side of the bus. I'm using the earbuds I got with my iPod and haven't noticed a change in sound.

    speakers are little electromagnets that push a cardboard cone to electric pulses.

    It's normal

    Well, that hasn't happened to me, ever.
    But it's not uncommon...

    My earbuds have never done that to me either. I don't even use them anymore though..
