I get only balanced 'mono output' from my IPAD 4 when I insert my stereo pin and head phone in to the audio 'out put' slot. Is there any adjustment to be made?. The same pin and headphone works well with my Ipod. Have the following doubta
1. Is the output from ipad4 mono?
2. Should I do some settings to get stereo sound
3. Should I choose Ipad 4 ear phone?
4. Is it not possible to get stereo sound through other cable than recommended by apple? If so what is the cable specification?

I think you may want to consider making a Genius Bar appointment at an Apple store. Your problem is not normal. Before going, however, try looking into the headphone jack, in case some debris is lodged there.
Make sure to do a full backup of your iPad before going to the AppleStore, as they will give you a replacement iPad if they decide your problem is a warranty issue. You can then set up the new iPad from the backup you made.
P.S.; if the audio source is mono, you will hear mono sound in the headphones.
