Has the proliferation of MP3 players/other personal music devices had a negative impact on buskers?

With the success of the iPod and other MP3 players not being confined to younger people (as the Walkman might have been in the past), has thi had a negative impact on buskers? I am thinking that there are many more people walking around cities already plugged into to music or podcasts or whatever, and this makes it easier for them to walk past buskers without even really noticing them.
Anecdotes from those who busk especially welcome!
