device (“Device A”).

You must manually connect the second device (“Device B”) to your
earbuds via its operating system.
•
Your earbuds prioritize the audio from Device A.
•
You can control Device A using the earbuds’ controller.
•
When Device A is idle your earbuds can receive audio from Device B.
•
Device B must be controlled directly from its user interface.
