I have a Boston scientific but I always forget about that rule and wear my blue tooth headphones clasped, with magnets, at my heart level. I will say I walked by a BIG speaker during christmas and got this wierd feeling like something was slithering around or vibrated in my chest. it persisted for a little less than a week and them went away. My cardiologist didnt seem too concerned.

No problem for me either

I use some Bluetooth over-ear headphones regularly, and even rest them around my neck such that the speaker is quite close to my Medtronic pacemaker, and no problems ever.

send them to me

Better safe than sorry :oP

Seriously, most warnings like that are overly cautious and most of us are no longer told to worry about any home electronics. Pacers are better shielded than they used to be so very little will affect them. You name the warning, I've probably pushed it at some point- I read with my ipad on my chest, run with my phone tucked in my bra and/or bluetooth earbuds, jump start cars, run a generator in a hurricane, tour power plant, ride roller coasters, rode an Olympic bobsled (I may have failed to mention that one to the ep lol). The longer we have these things, the more blase we get. My doctors have told me not to worry about it so I don't and I've never once had a problem in 20+ years. Live your life.

It's much better to live with a pacemaker than to risk your life without one.
