I have just had a pacemaker implanted. I use headphones with a cable lead to listen to my my CD player or my TV so not disturb the neighbours. Will it interfere with my pacemeker and how about if I  get new headphones with Bluetooth and listen wirelessly? Thanks for any advive....  .  


Go for it

There is absolutely nothing wrong with either. I was only warned not to place high-end headphones directly on the pacemaker. High-end sets use neodymium (super) magnets that may trigger the magnetic sensor in the PM if directly on the PM.  6" (probably less) away is perfectly safe.

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
