A music fan is done headphones after having small magnet ‘speakers’ implanted directly into his ears.
The Nevada man is a ‘bodyhacker’ which is a person who experiments with surgical implants. In his latest stunt, he embedded small magnets into his tragus (a small piece of cartilage just outside the ear) and built a coil to be worn around his neck.
He claims that this creates a magnetic field that causes the implant to vibrate and make a sound.
To listen to music, he has to plug his phone into a tiny amplifier which is connected to the coil around his neck to create a magnetic field.
This magnetic field causes the magnets in his ears to create sound which only he can hear.
He admits that the sound quality is not nearly as good as it would be using traditional headphones.
