Who cares? I've been buying headphones on their own, and getting them with devices for years, and I have pairs laying around all over the place. I have no clue where most of them came from, nor do I care. I have a nice pair of Sennheisers I use when I want good 'buds, and plenty of cheap ones for when I just want something convenient, plus some big Sony over-ear monitors.

If I get an extra pair of headphones from something, great. If not, I would never miss them in the first place.

I'm using a pair of skullcandy in ear headphones that cost £10 (~$15US). A good balance between quality and price I think.

The apple headphones are one of the worst things apple ships, they were good for branding, but now they show up how poor they are.

And with an iPad? Does anyone use an iPad as a portable music player? Really? I was at a poker game recently and I saw a guy using his iPad as an mp3 player, looked ridiculous.
get the Sony in ears with extra bass. They do really offer extra bass and are great for quality. 11.98£ at argos!

I wouldn't mind it but I'm also still spoiled from owning the original iPhone, which came with a charging cable, wall charger, ear buds AND the dock.

I still wish the iPhone came with the dock.

It would be nice, but it isn't like I don't already have some or other earphones.

Voted yes. Would not break Apple's back to at least include the new ear pods.

I feel like at the price we pay for iPads some cheapo headphones should definitely be included. Love using the apple headphones as backups in my backpack in case I forget my good ones.

I'll go with no because I believe the iPad is more of a work and go-to device. Whereas the iPod and iPhone are extremely portable. Not that the iPad isn't, but an iPhone as an iPod makes a lot more sense than an iPad being an iPod.
