Am going to buy an ipad at the weekend and want to watch video footage on the morning train journey.

Looking for a good set of headphones and initially considered BT but read you can't watch a movie with them and the ipad as the sound wil be out of synch.

But most headphones I have seen seem to have a 1.5
meter lead which is just too long!

Can you buy headphones with short leads?

Yes you can. Apple uk store stock some can't remember the brand but it is .75m long with a .75m extension included.

I have the Denon AH-C710's and they have a short lead with an extension lead. They look good and sound good. May want to look into them as an option.

Who told you that?

I use Sony DR-BT22 Bluetooth headphones with my iPad and they work perfectly.

Really?!! I have read on here more than once that all BT headphones will fail to synch with video as the time taken to process the audio and transmit it to the unit is to slow too keep up with the action?

Is this a case of misinformation?

It's utter rubbish.
