    Right now I listen to Music all day while working. I wear LG headphones that are paired with my tablet. I only put one ear bud in. Then I have a Bluetooth headset that just goes on the other ear all day hooked to my phone.

    I've tried to pair both of them to my phone but when I've been on calls, the music I was listening to in the earbuds starts playing in the hands free headset when I answer a call. Not sure if the caller could hear the music.

    So, that's why I use two different devices.

    But I find it annoying because i have a tablet and when I want to use my tablet, I need to pair it to the tablet. If i leave it paired then the next time I go to use the headphones with the phone, it pairs instead with the tablet.

    So, I just bought some anker over ear headphones that reviews sounds like it has decent call clarity.

    This will solve my problem of having music continue to play if I'm listening to music and talking in the same Bluetooth device. But the problem I have now is I can't stand hearing in stereo when talking to people over the phone or video calls. I immediately have a hard time generating coherent thoughts. My brain just doesn't like it.

    So, I was hoping to find a sound profile app that I could tell it when playing music play stereo but when using the phone, only use the right ear. Does such an app like that exist? I'd be OK even with an app that had profiles so after I answer a call, I would just click the app and change it only to one ear.

    I thought I knew of a lot of apps, but I have never heard of such a thing.

    Not that it doesn't possibly exist.

    Anyway, the only thing that I can think of that would sort of work (in my experience) would be an old style (unless they still make them, which is possible) Jabra brand headphone.

    These were unique because the mic and headphone were one piece, and in ear, like an ear bud.

    Although you would never have stereo, you also wouuld not have two ear buds, and you could go into your Accessibility settings and select mono sound.
    This makes sure that you don't lose any of the music- both channels will play through a single speaker.

    I know it's not exactly what you asked for, but it's as close as I can get at the moment.
