Any earbuds that connect to two devices simultaneously?

    I'm in the market for a pair of earbuds, but I want them to be able to automatically switch between devices such that if I'm playing in one device and then pause that device and start playing in the second device, sound will automatically start coming out of the second device. My Bose QuietControl 30 bluetooth headphones do that, but I'd rather have earbuds and go completely wireless. Apple's AirPods don't do auto switching - you need to swipe and select so I'm wondering if any others do. Anyone know?

    Yea, I know about them - I have the QuietControl 30, which is more or less the noise cancelling version of those (the Sport Wireless lets in ambient noise). However, I'm looking for something completely wireless and that's why I'm looking at earbuds.

    No totally wireless earbuds offer multipoint. The AirPods come closest but not exactly what you're looking for.

    So am I right that if you want to switch devices, the only way to do it is to go into settings and manually connect (which is a bit of a pain)?

    If they don't support multipoint or W1, then yeah.
