    Oh good info. Pairing and unpairing. There certainly is a lot to this Bluetooth wireless stuff. I can get tech support quote unquote from Amazon for both devices. They are arriving Monday (earbuds) so I'll let you know how I do. Thanks to all again!!
    Sure, come back any time. I'm bluetooth (bt) galore over here seeing I have 2 bt game controllers (DualShock4, XBOX Series), 1 bt speaker (JBL), and 1 bt earphones (SoundPEATS). They can also be paired/unpaired interchangeably to my sources which are my laptop, smartphone, and tablet. :)

    Once you've succeeded once or twice, you'll think it's really straightforward.
    And you'll always have TenForums & this thread to come back to.

    Good luck on Monday then,

    I am going to purchase a cheap set of wireless earbuds ($15.99). I don't need anything high end as I only listen to audio books when I walk. Unfamiliar as I am with the wireless earbud world, these will work when I leave the house and walk half a mile away? Appreciate thoughts. Thanks so much.

    Also will they pair with an mp3 player or do I listen to the book on my laptop thru these earbuds? See, I don't know much about this technology. Thanks.
    My first wireless (bluetooth) earbuds were made by Phillips. Cost me about US $25. After about one year, the very soft and thin rubber "frame" just tore off. This frame had clips for the ears so the earbuds just fell out.

    Then I bought a new pair for about US $45. So far, so good. These earbuds auto power off. My earlier ones did not.

    "auto-power off? If you turn off your system (laptop with audio books) doesn't the Bluetooth turn off. Or do you have to manually turn off the earbuds? Thanks.

    Yes, Bluetooth turns off with the computer.

    Your earpods will have their own method of turning off. It might be automatic, it might not. You'll have to read its user manual.

    On the bright side, once paired re-connection is likely to be automatic [but you'll still have to read its user manual].

    The user manual is likely to be 8 pages or thereabouts.
