Your pacemaker is designed to work properly around most appliances and tools. However, electromagnetic interference (EMI) from headphones and earbuds may affect how your pacemaker works. These effects are usually temporary. Still, we recommend following these guidelines to stay safe.
Anything that transmits Bluetooth or with a magnet inside cannot be used closer than 6'' (15 cm) to a pacemaker. All of our Headphones, Speakers, and Earbuds, as well as all of our Bluetooth products fall under this category, and must not be placed very close to your pacemaker. Normal usage of our headphones and earbuds - wearing them in or over your ears - is completely safe.
The Takeaway: It’s safe to use headphones and earbuds with your pacemaker, but you should not drape them around your neck or store them in a breast or other shirt pocket - as that would put them too close to your pacemaker. Normal usage should bear no problems.
