I've become enamored with BlueTooth EarBuds/HeadPhones ...
@Home I rotate my three (3) pairs of BT EBs
while playing HiFi digital audio
on either my "dongled" T43 or
one of my older/inactive SDmicro'ed CellPhones
(preferably my LG-VS450PP ~ which I recently "rooted" ...)
When "out&about" ...
with my in-service Nexus5 CellPhone
I carry/use two (2) pairs of BT EBs ...
both with integrated microphones ~
which transforms the experience
of actually using the CellPhone for phoning
I recently exchanged Emails with a CyberAcquaintance (in SoCal/LA) ~
who said BlueTooth EarBuds might expose the user
to health risks ... and should therefore be avoided
Until then ... I'd not actually considered that
using BT EBs might be exposing me to a "HealthRisk" ~
(somewhat) akin to having a CellPhone in your ear ...
for hours & hours ... day after day ...
I really (REALLY) don't want to switch back to tethered EarBuds ...
@Home ... or "out&about" ...
I'm (honestly) NOT SURE ...
what to think/do
ps:I've (recently) been considering for my T43
acquiring/installing/using the IBM Integrated Bluetooth IV with 56K Modem (BMDC-3)
Would that (possibly) improve my T43 BlueTooth capability ???
or would I be ... "better off" with the (newer) USB BT dongle ???
It's short range, lower powered radio that operates within the same frequencies as many other common electronics around you (WiFi, remotes etc).
The fact that you are conscious of Bluetooth is merely a result of the use case, playing sound. When you're not playing music, you are still surrounded by a whole range of radio signals but because you can't hear them, you don't even think about it.
I would be more worried about the effects of prolonged audio if I were you. It seems you like to spend a lot of time wearing headphones and separate from the wireless stuff, this can be damaging to your hearing in the long-term.

& thanx ... for your thoughts/input ...
I am aware that there is BlueTooth/WiFi/Cellular all around ... "us";
1) I/"We" cannot really remove ourselves
from the BlueTooth/WiFi/Cellular all around ... "us";
yet, we CAN CHOOSE whether or not to wear BlueTooth EarBuds ...
2) The BlueTooth/WiFi/Cellular all around ... "us"
is NOT being received/processed by a device
stuck inside our ears/head;
e.g., having a CellPhone up against one's head all day
is (a bit) different from "passive" exposure
to the transimissions all around "us" ...
3) Choosing to NOT use/"wear" BlueTooth EarBuds ...
would mean that ...
one would avoid any resultant "consequences"
IF there is (actually) any danger
from (excessive?) DIRECT BlueTooth Exposure
I'm still kind of ... "agitated"/troubled by the question/issue

Its safe. No question about it or it would be pulled from the market and thousands of people would be on the floor dead eith their bluetooth headphones. Humans have been surronded by cosmic background radiation for 200,000 years and we havent had a problem. I dont think your headphones are going to kill you.
Now stop complaining and get back to work with your "wrongly configured" box of pixels.
