The only cause for worry is the strong magnet in some of the high-end headphones resting directly on your pacemaker.  Some of these have a very strong rare-earth magnet and may trip the "MRI" switch in your PM.  This has nothing to do with them being wireless.  High-end wired headphones will have the same issue.

BTW, if it does trip the switch, it won't cause any serious issues.  The pacemaker will enter an open-loop mode with a fixed rate.  You might notice it but it won't cause any permenant damage to it, or you.

You know you're wired when...

You’re officially battery-operated.

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
