YES ABSOLUTELY !!! As soon as your phone rings you must stop and answer your phone, so it will affect YOUR operation of the Nox 800..... 🤣

Does it cause some type of electromagnetic interference ? NO Absolutely not !! 🤣

I have the Dues ll and accidentally disconnected my pin pointer.
I started to look at a video on reconnecting it.
The EMI was certainly noticeable in my headphones.
So I just tell the Mrs no calls 🙃

It can to a certain extent, but, not enough to worry about. Do a noise cancel and don't think twice.

Whatever it takes to still be out there, I'll be doing it!
