I'm not sure this is the right spot to ask this question, but I will give it a shot. I just purchased a pair of Sony MDR 1000X headphones and according to the instructions it is possible to pair them to a smartphone and a music player. I would like to pair both my iPhone and iPad to them. The instructions aren't very clear saying something about making A2DP and HSP connections, but it doesn't say how to do this. If I connect one device I lose the other. Is it actually possible to do this and if so, I would be grateful if someone could explain how. Thanks for any help.

No, only the bose qc35s do this.
There are actually many Bluetooth headphones that have this capability (referred to as multipoint connectivity). Your Sony headphones probably are able to connect to both devices as advertised, however, they may not be able to do it simultaneously. I have a few pair of headphones that are able to have simultaneous connections and it's great as it allows mean to easily switch between my iPhone and iPad without having to do anything.
