Wireless earbuds, lack of feature info, unhelpful reviews 

Having to get a pair of wireless earbuds (without *actually* really wanting them) is a tedious endeavour.

Why? It's mostly impossible to research the *actual* features of control options (play, pause, *volume* control, etc.) and especially multi-device pairing possibilities.
Especially the latter is not covered by *almost any* (Youtube) review out there. I consider it an absolutely key functionality.

Even worse for budget options.

@MacLemon Jabra 65t can connect to two devices if you do it in the right order. Occasionally they unpair themselves, and you have to figure out how to do it all over again. Phone first, then computer? Computer first, then phone? Who knows?

@MacLemon it’s like USB flash drives — the first two tries are always wrong

@kr4dio At least that can be easily explained by the USB connector quantum superstate.

@MacLemon wenn es keine buds sein müssen - diese von Pioneer haben pause,play, Lautstärke, Sprung vorwärts/rückwärts und können mit zwei Geräten gepaart werden.
