When you plug in a wired headphone on the iPad, the wires can get in front of the screen, becoming annoying. I purchased this bluetooth headphone that is great and recommended for the iPad. I got it for my macbook but now that I am getting the iPad I could use these with it's full advantage of portability. An example why you should get these is say your going on a bike ride and you have your backpack with the iPad in it. You can sync the bluetooth headphone and wirelessly listen to music as you ride your bike while your iPad is in your backpack and can control the volume and music with the side buttons. Also great for being in a home. You can also use the iPad camera Kit *USB* to charge your bluetooth headphone Let me know what you think.
