    What is the best headset to iPad 2 in your opinion?

    Because I'm about to pick a new pair up, I just don't know which one.

    - Thanks!

    I like my Motorola SD9 HD Bluetooth ...
    Even one broke (leaking battery) I got a second one ...
    why ? The comfort to wear it just fits my head.

    For "wired" use, you can't go wrong with the Bowers & Wilkins P5's although at $300, I know that is over some peoples budget for headphones...BUT, if you have the money IMO they are the best you can buy in the "portable headphone market"...
    For Stereo BT use I like my Altec Lansing/Plantronics Backbeat 906's (I believe there is a less expensive 903 model that comes without the extra outboard BT transmitter)...

    "Best" is in the $1,000 range. You may want to clarify your budget and sound/music preferences.

    For bt, I like the backbeats better than the moto rokr. I had the rokr for 8 months and now have the back beats, they're more comfortable and the battery lasts longer. The rokr though does have slightly better sound, but start to hurt after a while. And the backbeats I can fit in my pocket, can't do that with the rokr.

    I concur about the Backbeats...good sound, light and comfortable, long battery life, fast charging, easy to carry...they have it all and can be purchased at a very good price online...

    Im really liking the new klipsch headphones. They sound really good, are super comfortable and you can't beat the price at $139.

    I just bought myself Sennheiser PX 100-II - they are just 40€ on Amazon and they are awesome. Great value-for-money ratio :)

    Haha I thought the same thing...

    I have a pair of those and they are very good. The other one, almost exactly like that is the Porta-pros by Koss (just about the same thing).

    For that price and form factor they can't be beat. Very comfortable.

    However, having said that, The drivers are small and right up against your ears, so there's room for improvement, if you scale up ( mostly in cost ).

    Ideally, you could use the connection kit into a high quality DAT....etc, etc.

    I absolutely LOVE my klipsch image one. Had a more expensive pair of sennheisers but exchanged them for the klipsch. Think they were $150.

    Based on his handle, I'm assuming electronica.
