Uses of Neodymium Magnets in Daily Life

A neodymium magnet is the most widely used type of rare-earth magnet. It is a permanent magnet made from neodymium, iron, and boron alloy to form the Nd2Fe14B tetragonal crystalline structure.

It’s a permanent magnet which magnetism is second only to the absolute zero-degree holmium magnet, and it is also the most commonly used rare earth magnet.

Neodymium magnets have replaced Alnico and ferrite magnets in many of the myriad applications in modern technology. Strong neodymium magnets are required because their greater strength allows smaller, lighter magnets for a specific application.

People often ask us uses of neodymium magnets. Well, the answer is…just about anything. Next, regarding the application of neodymium magnets in various fields, we will start this article about the uses of neodymium magnets in daily life.

Some of the potential everyday uses for our powerful neodymium magnets.

For example, many household appliances cannot work without magnets. At the same time, there are also many tips using neodymium magnets that help tools deal with some knotty problems in life. Next, let’s take a look.

1. Electroacoustic & Audiovisual

  • Moving-coil Headphones

Moving-coil headphones image1

Fix the enameled coil on the diaphragm, and place a neodymium magnet underneath. When the electric signal passes through the enameled wire, a magnetic field of different strengths is generated. Because the permanent magnet is fixed, the enameled coil drives the diaphragm to vibrate. And become music to your ears.

  • Speakers

Run AC through the voice coil of the speaker. The voice coil produces alternating magnetic fields under the action of the input current, and that the voice coil is placed in neodymium magnets. Under the action of these two magnetic fields, the voice coil moves perpendicular to the current movement, so the voice coil is in the electric current and reciprocating motion.


Because the voice coil and paper basin are connected, such voice coil movement drives the front, and rear vibration of the paper basin, the vibration of the paper basin drives the vibration of air, and the human ear can feel the vibration of air and produce sound. The current thus fed into the speaker is converted into sound by the speaker’s action.

When inputting the AC in loudhailer becomes larger, the AC that flows through the sound coil becomes larger. Also, the action of the magnetic field becomes stronger. The paper basin of loudhailer vibrates amplitude the larger, the corresponding sound the larger. Conversely, the AC into the speaker changes smaller, the speaker produces less sound.

  • Dynamic Microphone

The working principle of a dynamic microphone is to vibrate the diaphragm through the air with human voice, and then the coil winding on the diaphragm and the neodymium magnet surrounding the microphone head form a magnetic field cutting, forming a weak current.

2. Business Displays and Signage

More and more businesses are relying on magnets to hold their signs in place and attract customers. In-store displays often require less preparation of surfaces -and in many buildings (such as offices) with metal walls or dividers, there is no preparation. Magnets are also used as a solution for company vehicles, causing no damage to paint and requiring just only peeling off.
