Dave and the team discuss a cybersecurity company being hacked by a foreign country, Royole’s new foldables, Facebook being sued for predatory conduct, SmartTV promotions, streaming games to TVs, hack risks for smart devices, YouTube’s Top 10 charts for 2020, and more.
Don in LaBelle, Florida listens to the podcasts and asked: “I was wondering about wireless headphones and earbuds. I have never used them. I have an iPhone that apparently would be able to do that. I’m not sure if there is a benefit, if the quality would be good enough. If you could, please explain a little bit about using wireless devices with iPhones.”
Don, the main benefit of wireless headphones is that theyre wireless really. The quality will be good, but it wont be better, and youll have to charge them.
The process of using it is reasonably simple, the first time you use then there will be some kind of pairing process, depending on the set you buy they may pop up on screen automatically or, most likely, youll have to go to your bluetooth settings and pair them there.
The process of pairing them is generally pretty easy, youll just have to put them into pairing mode (which usually involves holding down a button for a few seconds) and select them from a list. Thats it.
After theyre paired turning them on will automatically connect them to the phone and your music will play through them.
Other than having to turn them on and charge them, theres not much about their usage thats different from using wired ones. The sounds come out of them unless you ask the phone to send them to a different device.
