I went out and bought the 64GB iPad on Saturday. It's my first Apple device and I love it!

I'm now looking for a good set of Bluetooth headphones. I bought a pair of Rocketfish 'phones from BB, but couldn't get them to pair with my iPad. I also didn't like their fit. I returned them.

I would prefer the kind that go behind the head rather than over the top. I also do NOT want earbuds.

Any suggestions? Also, any tips for pairing them up? Any that you know of that WON'T pair with the iPad?

Thanks in advance!

Bruce

Any standard set of Bluetooth headphones should pair with the iPad. You may need to use a "0000" passkey to pair them.

My iPad never asked for a passcode. It just kept looking for something to pair with and never found anything.

DR-BT22 from Sony is what i picked up for my iPad. But they are the O.T.H style. They do sound great and the range it incredible.

Usually Bluetooth devices have a pairing mode. The process is listed in the instructions.

Would like some recommendations also, but the earbud style if anyone knows any.

I'm looking for a set that is comfortable while laying down with side of head on pillow.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I Have been using Apple's in-ear ear buds and honestly I love them. They work great when laying on your side, you can't even feel them, but obviously not Bluetooth. Also, I don't profess to be an audiophile but to me they sound awesome!

I've long since broken those and moved on to some JBL's that run <$5 at Amazon or $10 at Walmart. They sound just fine for listening to books. Would really like to find a wireless set that's not going to make your ear or the side of your head sore when you wake up in the morning and they're still on.
