Can anyone advise if wearing wireless earbuds is ok with a pacemaker device in situ in the chest area please. Sounds bizarre but I'm purchasing a new phone and I want the lilac version. The present offer is free earbuds worth £140. Obviously too good to turn down. Who doesn't like a freebie. BUT do I order the lilac to match the phone which is pointless if I can't use them?. Or do I still take advantage of the buds but order them in black so I can pass them on to my grandson? I don't think he would appreciate them in "ladies" lilac. I'm a bit paranoid about using wireless items on my bodyparts tbh. Probably a psychological fear on my part but would appreciate any advice TIA

Bluetooth is not a problem. The technology is designed for different devices to play nice together. The RF energy is quite small for earbuds, since they don't transmit (much). I wouldn't carry them in a shirt pocket on that side but other than that, I wouldn't give it a second thought.

it's fine

But if in doubt, feel free to order the ones to match my phone and send them to me :oP

I just searched on "lilac phone" and see that it's a Samsung.  I just upgraded from a Note-10 to an S-22 Ultra (the network we changed to doesn't like Note-10s - really odd).  I've been using Samsung ear buds for several hours a day, for a few years with absolutely no troubles.

And pacemakers have Bluetooth as well.

You know you're wired when...

You have a maintenance schedule just like your car.

Yesterday was my first day mountain biking after my implant. I wiped out several times and everything is fine. There are sports after pacemakers!
