How to use the Audio Sharing feature

If your iPhone / iPad has a Home button, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen to open the Control Center
Step 2: In the Control Center, tap on the Play button
Step 3: Here, click on the AirPlay button
You can also see this button when opening the Music app or the Now Playing widget on the lock screen
Step 4: Below your connected headset, you'll see the Share Audio button. Click on it
Step 5: Now, bring another iPhone / iPad with the paired headset to it, close to your device. Or you can also bring a second pair of headphones to your device
Step 6: You will see the pairing message appear. Click the Share Audio button
Now both pairs of headphones will be connected to your iPhone / iPad.
Step 7: Go back to the playlist, and you'll see there are 2 names of headphones connected. Your ones will already have tick marks, new ones won't. Now just tick it and you can play music for both pairs of headphones.
