Sam is looking for the ideal pair of noise-canceling earbuds. The ones she has now won't pair to her iPad. Leo says that she will need to put them into pairing mode before they will pair. That usually works by pressing the power button and holding it for a few seconds until the light starts blinking. Then select them on the iPad. And she won't need a special app to pair either. Alternatives? Leo likes the Jabra earbuds. But The Wirecutter likes Bose. Then Samsung.
Marty bought an Amazon Fire TV and he wants to use a Bluetooth keyboard remote with it. It comes with a dongle that he needs to plug into the FireTV. Leo says that the Fire TV has bluetooth, so he may not need the dongle for it to work. He can just put both the keyboard and the Fire TV into pairing mode and they should pair. He'll know he's in pairing mode when the light goes from solid to blinking on each. One it pairs, it'll go solid again.
Carlos wants to know if his iPhone can pair to multiple bluetooth devices. Leo says yes! It's been a standard capability for awhile in smartphones now. Leo also recommends over the ear bluetooth headphones.
Motorola makes great wireless headphones, as does LG. The Motorola S10HD are about $40, and they go around the neck and house the batteries for longer battery life. He'll also want headphones that support the high quality stereo profile called 'A2DP.'
