The deadline for the 2023 Group Christmas Project submissions has now been extended to Monday the 11th of December.
I decided to start this topic because Mouse indicated in her blog that she was having some issues with her airpods while practicing for the Fiddlerman GP. And she didn't want techy responses.
My post isn't very techy, but some of you may have more complex options that you might talk about.
I've been using the same bluetooth earbuds for a couple of years (used them on all the duet stuff I've posted here on the Forum). I use them with my older Ipad (2017? not sure version), and I've had no issues. Very easy to use (and cheap).
1. On Ipad, turn on Bluetooth.
2. Remove earbuds from their case (this turns them on).
3. Once Ipad finds earbuds, you're ready to use them. Play click track saved on Ipad.
4. When done, put earbuds back in case & turn Bluetooth off on Ipad.
That's it. Hardest thing to do is remembering to plug them in to charge them.
These are the very ones I use--got 2 pair (got a spare because they were cheap).
@mouse - like you, I only use 1 earbud in my right ear. I agree that it is easier to hear your own playing if you do it this way.
Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
I use Oladanse 'Open' Earbuds.
Similar (VERY simple) use as yours, Sharon - they are NOT 'bone conducting', but I talk about them more in the Bone conducting headphones Thread.
I record with my phone, so I only need to pair one of them with my laptop - which has NO phone answering or notifications enabled.
EXTREMELY comfortable, nothing goes directly inside my ear, clear sound (excellent), NO bleed-through, & it automatically shuts off once back in it's charging case.
