HI, I have a pacemaker/defibrillator, I want to purchase a Bose entetainment cd/dvd entetainment unit. Has anyone had a problem getting a rapid heart beat with this unit. I know it has happen to me a few time when I was at a wedding with very loud music. I don't play music loud, but would like to know if this could effect my pacemaker. Any info would be appreciated.



Great system

I would love to have a Boase system. I assume you have a rate responsive unit. I too have found my heart rate increases when listening to loud music. The effect is temporary and should not harm your device.

I have a Bose System. PLus loud Music equipment (for playing live.)
Admin is likely bang on in saying it's probably your rate response unit. When they turned mine off (because I didn't actually NEED that function on my PM) I no longer felt anything when around louder music.
And no, from what I was told, iut wouldn't affect my PM.

By the way, I LOVE my BOSE system!!!!

The type of magnet used

I considered a Bose system, however, while I was in the store talking to the sales person, he said it was not advisable to own one because of the strong neodymium magnet that they use in their system & speakers.

So of course I did not buy it. You know it's bad when the sales man doesn't want to sale it to you.


You know you're wired when...

You play MP3 files on your pacer.
