Speakers or headphones with magnets are becoming old school now, researchers from Tsinghua University in Beijing have created earphones that looks pretty ordinary, but doesn't contain those previous technology, these earphone are made up of many strings-like carbon nanotubes (CNT) thermoacoustic chip which can only operate on 60mW of power. This chip is extremely thin and vibration and magnetic free. Yet this technology is now incompatible with the conventional audio output but the scientists ar
