I think everyone should be concerned and I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of side effects that could have that the companies aren't telling us?I really don't wanna have brain cancer or other problems when I am like 40. Thanks

I've tried a couple, big and small, they are all magnets. I think it's the electro magnet that creates sound in earphones.

Yes, there has been several documentations that says our generation are more likely to having hearing problems because of earphones. To prevent greater risk, take intervals of silent time to relax your ears instead of listening to music even when its really not needed and you are doing something else.
WTF? This was really random and unrelated to the OP's question. Hearing damage is a result of listening for something too loud for too long, not a result of magnetism.
If you are afraid of magnetism from your earphones, you'd better stay away from all types of phones. Your mobile phone puts out all kinds of radiation when your make a call. Your cordless phone will do similar things but with less power. Your corded telephone has a speaker with a maget on it. Bluetooth headsets aren't any better because they will still emit some type of radiation when it transmits.
The magnets in your earphones are always magnetized, not only when you play music through them. Some earphones use rare earth magnets which are much more powerful than regular ceramic magnets found in home speakers because they have more force with less weight.
You really cannot get away from EM as another poster already pointed out. Whether you are in the sun, or even just standing outside. If you stand outside long enough, you will receive enough EM radiation that can injure your, kill you, or cause you burn injuries...OK I'm talking about sunburns. Anyhow, you constantly being bombared by EM radiation from things like cell phone signals, TV and radio transmissions, etc. Earphones are probably the least of your worries as far a EM goes. You should be more worried about how loud you play them than about EM radiation from them.
