In a specific embodiment, the left ear earphone in the wireless earphone assembly is a master state earphone, the right ear earphone is a slave state earphone, and when the user wears and uses only one earphone in the wireless earphone assembly, the earphone worn by the user is the master state earphone.
When the headset is in an unpaired state and in a worn state, a master-slave state of the headset may be first determined, wherein determining the master-slave state of the headset may be determined by two headsets in the true wireless headset assembly communicating with each other or by the headset being worn alone.
In the case where only one earphone is in the unpaired state and in the worn state, the earphone can determine itself as the master state earphone, the process does not need to acquire the master-slave state of the other earphone, and in the case where both earphones are in the unpaired state and in the worn state, one earphone can be set as the master state earphone and the other earphone can be set as the slave state earphone according to the prestored setting or the setting for user definition.
