From the Abu Dhabi Race rules

61.  Headsets, headphones or any items which obstruct hearing such as mobile phones are not permitted during any section of the event.

Clearly they don't police it very well!

I don't have a problem with pacing aids, but I'm with FB, if they're audible to others they shouldn't be allowed.  The odd one here & there is annoying enough, imagine if everyone started using them!

ah - the old perennial pacing aids question.  simply you are not going to ban garmins, bike computers, or other pacing aids etc as they are an accepted part of racing these days and like many sports, technology will always be one step ahead of the rules so even if you banned them, someone will come up with another way.   as long as they don't interfere with other athletes races, or their enjoyment, or intefere with their hearing or concentration, then let them go.   

I turned off the beep on my HRM as it was annoying me, let alone anyone else!
