What’s included.
In the box:

iPad
Dock Connector to USB Cable
10W USB Power Adapter
SIM eject tool
(Wi-Fi + 3G model only)

Doesn't look like it. One more way to keep that price under $500. ;)

No, and that's just as well. I would rather not pay for something to be included that is going to be tossed in the garbage anyway. iPod earbuds are the most uncomfortable things ever made.

I agree!
They are very uncomfortable and I would just prefer to get my own.
I have all kinds of the Apple supplied ones tossed in a box.

I probably wont use headphones much anyways. I heard the speaker is plenty loud enough and it has a mic built-in. Its gotta be better than my ipod touch speaker.

Good move by Apple. I have a drawer full of Apple earbuds. I never use em as the sound quality is not that great. I use Sony's for running with iPhone / iPod and Shure E4C's on planes n trains.

Although I don't mind the apple headphones, I don't need them for the ipad.

I'll be using my Bose quietcomfort 15s.

Regardless of the quality of the headphones, it should be included. Apple is positioning the device as a media consumption product. Headphones are included with all iPods and iPhones. They could easily toss in a pair of headphones. I am really surprised they opted not to.

Completely agree, any portable media device should include earphones. My old iphone pair are on their last leg and could really have used a replacement. I really don't mind the stock earphones but I guess now is the time to upgrade..

The headphone jack does work the same as the iPhones though with output and input which solves alot of things for people.

Yeah, it's annoying they are not included. It is a media device. Grrr!!

I don't think you want the audio from your media media to be downgraded using the Apple headphones :p

I kind of find as though it is stupid that they don't include headphones, even ****** ones such as the standard supplied ones. Considering it is a mobile device ... it just seems stupid. But that is Apple. Once you used to get docks with iPods, now you barely get an iPod! Save money, save money, save money!

Nope, maybe they will include headphones for everyone in line?

That seems strange, but like mentioned it's probably cost savings. All my Apple headphones end up in a drawer anyway.

For me, the default headphones of iPhone are ok. Apple should have included them. I don't see a justification for removing them just because they are bad. May be they could upgrade them. Instead, they removed it :(

Apple can't win on this issue. They don't include headphones and everyone complains. If they DID include them, everyone would complain about how crappy they are.

You can't fit your iPad in your pocket anyways, earbuds are made for stuff you can fit in your pocket, once you have an iPad you can use your Bose /Senheiser or whatever super high quality you want, since you still need some sort of backpack/purse/suitcase to carry it

I would like a thin black carry case included instead.. Just like the one by waterfield designs..
Or the one that was included with the black/white plastic iPod videos..

I'm amazed that anyone expected headphones to be included. Honestly never thought it would come with them. <shrugs>

My Macbook is a mobile computer too and that didn't come with headphones either.

speaking of which, i hope the sound quality of the thing is alright. ipods are a bit BLEH at the moment.

So true, I remember when I got my 2nd gen ipod, full of extras! especially the dock, which I still have actually.

Now I just expect it, however I will not be losing any sleep over another pair of the worst noise leaking, uncomfortable headphones.

Well since people insist the iPad isn't a large iPod - and it isn't an iPhone - there's no need to put earphones in with the package right? ;)

Those wishing the ipad came with earbuds: It does. That model is $528. You have to special order it by selecting both the $499 ipad and the $29 earbuds. ;) There are other models too. Simple select your preferred iPad, then select your preferred earbuds (http://store.apple.com/us/search?find=earphones&mco=MTA4NTA5NjI).


Problem solved. :D

I have a set of Sony in ear headphones that only cost me $50 and have decent sound. I don't use them very often because I generally use my iPod in my car or at work on a dock. I don't like using headphones at work because I can't hear what's going on around me with them in.

If ur going to buy an apple product, u should get a nice pair of headphones.. now I know that iPods are selling for $100 or maybe even less nowadays.. but they are just not that good

I bought a pair of Scosche IDR650M that was only $44 so it wasn't too bad considering Apple sells the lower model for $40 (maybe higher) as does Amazon.

It's laughable that people are complaining about the lack of headphones. I have four iPods and two iPhones. My kids have DSi's with accessory kits that had earphones. I have plenty of headphone options. I also have my Denon headphones or my Nike/Philips ear hook earphones.

It's like this is your first iPod/MP3 player or first device where headphones may be needed.

Why would you think a device where MUSIC is not the primary selling point include them? As someone else said, their MacBook did not come with earphones. :confused:
