Answered: Clarification on use of electrical devices during matches.

Hello Karthik!
I was looking through past threads and the manual and couldnt find anything about listening to music during matches.
However, I saw that any form of video interaction (skype calling to line up hang) is not allowed.
My question is, are we allowed to play music (with earbuds in) during the match?
Thank you.

This is legal, however it will up to you to prove to the ref that your headphones aren’t being used for communication purposes. This will not be easy to prove. It would be much easier for you not to wear headphones during the match.
