Self Noise in Dynamic Microphones
The diaphragm in a dynamic microphone moves a wire coil in the presence of a magnet to induce a current related to the movement. Other types of microphones, like electret and condenser microphones have self noise - noise not attributable to the amplifier. I wonder if all of the "self noise" that supposedly comes from a dynamic microphone is really just the electromagnetic background of the environment. The electrical noise do to the current in the wire is ridiculously little and so is the mechanical noise from the diaphragm.
So here is my question: Is there any noise attributable to the permanent magnet? I can't imagine that there is, but any news would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your help.

It's probably Johnson noise arising from the resistance of the coil.
