"Bodyhacker" implants magnetic speakers in his ears

A US 'bodyhacker' has implanted tiny magnets in his ears that act as "invisible headphones" and allow him to listen to music at anytime.

Nevada man Rich Lee is a 'bodyhacker' or 'grinder', a person who experiments with body modification.

Mr Lee had magnets implanted in cartilage just outside his ear, and explained the unusual procedure in H+ magazine. The implants were done by American body modification artist Steve Haworth, who also performs ear-reshaping, tounge splitting and implanting "metal mohawks".

To make the magnets pick up music, Mr Lee wears a coil around his neck, which is plugged into his phone. He also has a magnet implanted into his finger, and says that when he puts his finger in his ear he can now hear music coming from his finger.
