We are talking about wearing headphones, presumably used by most to listen to music. To take these away from you doesn't stop you running, and I can't honestly believe that it affects your ability to run. I could understand complaints if runners were told they couldn't wear shoes, but headphones? Not in my opinion.
This is a perennial argument on here but is completely beside the point. If it says no headphones in the rules of a race, no-one has the right to whinge about getting disqualified. Whether you agree or not isn't relevant.
