Wireless earbuds with multipoint

Hi there!

I've been looking for a pair of wireless earbuds - separate units, not over the head - that have multipoint bluetooth and am having a hard time. I'd like to have a pair where, for instance, I can be streaming audio from a laptop but, in the middle of it, receive a call coming in from my cell phone that is also paired to those earphones. Apple's airpods and Samsung's Gear Icon X, for instance, don't have that feature, and yet multipoint seems to be a relatively common feature these days.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what brand/model might be suitable in this regard?

Thanks so very much!
R.

Thanks! Yeah, I had searched via Google, but it's mostly stuff similar to this - forum questions that don't get answered. There don't seem to be comprehensive answers to this out there. It sounds like the Sennheiser Momentum headphones might, but I was hoping to maybe get some feedback from people who have experienced models with this feature.

Have to agree.

Few will need this so it's going to be rare to find folk that have such.

Are you also telling us the makers and sellers refuse to talk to you?

Great to have a wireless earbuds with multipoint

In reply to: Wireless earbuds with multipoint

Multipoint is a new development in Bluetooth technology that allows your Bluetooth Headset to be connected to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. When a call comes in, the Bluetooth headset knows which device is ringing and will connect to the right one automatically.
