A system and method includes a first device (e.g., a primary wireless in-ear device) connected to a second device (e.g., a secondary wireless in-ear device) using a first wireless connection. The first device is also connected to a third device (e.g., a smartphone or smart watch) using a second wireless connection. If the first device and second devices determine signal quality metrics corresponding to the quality of the wireless signal received by each. If the second device reports having a better signal quality, communication with the third device is handed off from the first device to the second device.
