Bass killing external hard drive?

hey guy!
so i listen to music with allot of bass at a fairly loud volume(sorry don't have an exact number) so naturally my sub-woofer vibrates thinks
my sub-woofer is right beside my tower and the leg of my desk so it vibrates my tower and external on top
how likely is it that it will cause my hard drives to fail?

  1. I'd be more worried about the magnet in the bass then the vibration. I know they are supposed to have EMI shielding, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
  2. well its not right beside but its close enough that it vibrates the case
    ill move it away but the cords not that long so im still concerned about my 2 new hard drives

    Here is the link to a video (down bottom of the page) that demonstrates the effect of noise on HDD's. Assuming the video is the real deal I guess there can be issues around noise and HDD stability.
