If they are truly dead (and not just a fixable broken wire), they they contain useful magnets.
Generally when a set of headphones/earbuds stop working its due to a broken wire either at the jack or at the speaker.

Carefully pop open the shell of the buds/headphones and do a continuity test on the wire. Try to find the source of the break. If it broke at the jack end you can easily buy a replacement jack and solder it into place.

Are they earbuds or the head-band style headphones? A picture might help too. ;-)
