Best Answer

A microphone converts sound into electrical impulses. A speaker converts electrical impulses into sound. Because they both work on the same principle, a changing electrical field (the audio signal) in a coil causes a magnet within the coil to vibrate in tandem. The magnet is attached usually to a paper cone which allow our ears to hear the sound. The converse is also true. For example if you talk into a headphone it causes the magnet to vibrate which produces an electrical signal in the coil which is connected to the headphone cable.
