    I bought my wife a pair of AirPod Pros and a kindle for Christmas. I was curious for anyone using AirPods with their kindle do you have to unsync the AirPods from your phone every time you try to connect them with your kindle? Do you have to constantly sync and unsync between your Apple devices and kindle?

      Why wouldn't you just listen to the audiobook on your Apple device as it's already synced to the AirPods?

        That would be the most logical thing. Just trying to cover my bases. I assume most of the time she wouldn’t be using the AirPods on the kindle. But I just wanted to figure out if you needed to unsync each time you switch devices.

    Does anyone use apple airpods with their kindle fire? I keep getting stereo drop outs every once and a while where either left or right just stops working. It comes back in a few seconds but it's a tad annoying. My other bluetooth headphones don't have this issue.
