    HEADPHONE _ or POD IMPEDANCE

    Does anyone know if the impedance of headphones, or the little headphones that go in your ear, is an issue when buying this for the iPad4. Will ''Anything'' do or do I need to specify specifically when buying.

    Would like to get an idea of some to suggest as a present for me, but don't know whats good, but not silly prices as my hearing is not the best anyway.

    You should not need to consider the impedance under normal circumstances unless you are considering something quite obscure / unusual (and likely very expensive!).

    I wouldn't worry much about it.............anything for a "portable device" will work fine.

    FYI.....
    Typical low impedance headphones for mobile devices are in the 30 ohm range.

    Thanks Guys. IO think the best way forward would be to visit an Apple Store, but one problem is that it may not have them set up to try....................... we'll see.

    They usually have a decent selection of traditional style headphones to try (at least they do up in Glasgow), however you are not likely to find anywhere that lets you try the "in ear" variety, for obvious reasons.

    Good luck with your search.
