"Headphones contain magnets, and some of these magnets are powerful. The headphone interaction applies whether or not the headphones are plugged in to the music player and whether or not the music player is on or off."
Ok I'm just checking i read this article correctly. If you have a pacemaker don't put your headphones within an inch of it or up to 25% of the time the pacemaker can fail from the EMI. ??
I get an error when trying to read the full article, but from what's presented here it sounds as if certain headphones with strong magnets (clip on types in this study, the in ear types only caused 1 interaction) cause "interference". It's difficult to say how they defined interference for purposes of the study, but if it caused the device the fail I'm sure they would've used stronger language.
IOW, the implanted device may not work 100% correctly in the presence of a strong headphone magnet, but it's still gonna work.
