Listening to Music
Removing The Dash from your ears will automatically pause the music playback. As you re-insert The Dash into your ears the music playback will resume once it reconnects with your device.
For some devices you may be required to resume the music playback manually with a single tap.
If you are connecting The Dash to a device for the first time, they need to pair via Bluetooth at first. After the initial pairing, your device will remember The Dash for the next time. (When you insert The Dash into your ears it will always search for previously paired devices close-by and try to re-connect automatically for your convenience.)
