Are There Multi-Device Bluetooth Headphones.

I'm wallowing in a sea of technology!

Are there such things as multi-device Bluetooth headphones?

Obviously one can only listen to one at a time, but it is such a pain having to re-pair each time you change devices. Over or on eat, not buds.

Unfortunately Bluetooth is stupid and unable to read your mind

If there are several Bluetooth Sources available, you will have to tell it which you wish to connect to

Oh, that 's easy. I do that already with Some of my devices.

That is no the same as pairing. The only headphones I can find only pair to one device, so that if I wish to charge from my phone to my tablet I have to unfair from the phone and pair to the tablet each time. T bat is a pain.

I want a pair that will appear in the list of available devices every time I scan.

I am not an expert but the impression I get is that you are going about it the wrong way.

The headphones are passive.

I expect that someone will correct me but:- Here goes.

Turn the Headphones on 》 turn your Phone's Bluetooth on 》 It should recognise the phones 》 turn your Phone's Bluetooth off 》 turn your Tablet's Bluetooth on 》 It should recognise the phones

It does, but only one at a time.

It will not pair with on device while it is paired with another.

Other devices present you with a list of available devices, I am looking for headphones which appear in such a list.

As you say they are not cheap, but that's why I get an allowance.

The answer to your question is yes.

But it depends on the headphones. Take a look at this.

Exactly what I wanted. Arriving on 10th (Amazon).
