Earpiece with strong magnet is place near a hard drive problematic?

A sennheiser earpiece with a strong magnet is place near a portable hard drive, will it cause any problem or error to the hard drive? When the L & R earpiece is place near each other you can feel small repulsive force.

Any magnet near a hard drive is a bad idea.
