Do the magnets interfere when the monitors are being used close to computer screens and other electronics for extended periods of time?

No, an LCD flat screen.

LCD displays aren't supposed to be affected by magnets.
Rest easy and get a pair of studio monitors :)

Thank you! I probably should have known but I tend to avoid having a magnet near any piece of electronic, even modern. Though, when I was a kid I liked "playing with the pretty colors" by moving a magnet over our CRT tv.

I remember being told by my professor back in the 90s about not having magnets on a pc case. If that was for HDD, then since many are moving to solid state, that point would also be moot. Strong enough magnets would still affect fans somewhat, I would imagine. But magnets in speakers within enclosures should not be THAT powerful unless you've got 15" subs mounted outside of the enclosure right next to your pc.
