Given that the ipad is basically an iphone/touch on steroids i can't see myself carrying it around in my hands just for music so I plan to have it in my bag most of the time while listening to music.

I dont want to muck around with cables coming out of my bag so want a good set of bluetooth headphones.

I'm not rich nor am i a music purist who has to have the most amazing headphones that cover every range and note.

I just want suggestions for reasonably priced good head phones, either over the ear or the ones that have the horse shoe that goes round the back of your neck

looking to spend $50-$100 NZD

thanks in advance for anyone that posts.

I have yet to hear one that I am happy with, Particually when your budget is so low that a decent pair pair of wired phones is a tall order.

a2dp seems to always compress the sound with some horrid codec that makes 128k MP3 sound awesome in comparison. While people will tell you that there are other options for headphones to use, I havent found them on any of the products I have tried.
