EPSO Exams and Preparation: Headphones

Hi everybody,
may I ask you something little unusual?
I would like to know if it's allowed the use of headphones to hear some music during CBT.
I guess the answer is no. But, just in case someone know what is stated in Epso rules...
Thank you

I believe that the answer is no. You are not allowed to bring anything with you, including tissues...
