Asked at a indoor league and was told nothing in the rule book.

If one has Bluetooth hearing protection, can one also listen to music (low) during a match?  No one else hears it as it’s in hearing protection.  I do it during practice and find it helps me stay calmer....

Curious on others thoughts 

No issue hearing line commands as it’s a separate mic for background noise, commands etc

I use my Peltor Bluetooth muffs to hear the commands from my phone's Bullseye app for practice. Much better than the earbuds with the cord. 
Don't know about the music during a match.

3.22 Cell Phones and other shooting aids: Shooters are
responsible to ensure all devices in their possession forward of the
ready line are silenced and communication disabled (e.g.: mute all
sound producing devices and airplane mode for cell phones).

Don't mean to stray from the original post, but what is the "Bullseye app" and where does one obtain said app?

Thanks

Thanks. Unfortunately, it's "Not available in your country"...     Not sure why it's not available here in Canada but will have to try and snag it the next time I'm in the US. Will look thru the list, maybe there is another similar one I can use.

My hearing aids are Bluetooth enabled. Kind of a catch 22. I handle 3.22 by not wearing them and shooting next to a range speaker.

So, not available thru Google play store, but was available from the link that was posted by the author on Google play store.

Thanks again for this.

Some background. A few years ago, I proposed to the rules committee this change to the rule book. Originally the rule was to turn off all cell phones. However, technology had evolved and the cell phone device had become a timer, camera, and with the right attachments a wind meter, etc. etc. that plugs into the device. In other words it had become much more than just a cell phone. Thus the change.

The reason to silence the device is to not disturb adjacent shooters. The reason to disable communications is so that a shooter could not receive remote coaching help. Since BT is a form of communications, it would fall under this prohibition.

And before someone flames this post, Yes I know BT is normally short range, but Class 1 blue tooth range specification calls for a unit that can transmit at 100 mW with a range of 100 meters or 328 feet.
