    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    Your iPad has a Bluetooth (BT) transmitter which I use w/ my Apple wireless BT keyboard; I also purchased BT headphones (Rocketfish - shown below for about $50 at Best Buy; Amazon.com: Rocketfish Bluetooth High-Definition Stereo Headphones for Most Bluetooth-Enabled Devices Black RF-MAB2: Electronics, if interested). If the headphones are listed as BT all is there ready to 'pair' w/ your iPod - a simple process. Good luck and let us know which brand/model you selected - various BT headphones have received some varied opinions. :)

    Hi that is a good proposal, how long they are working before recharge? Speaking about headsets, I was thinking is it possible to you hands free device for Skype communication?

    Hi Tianicol - hope that you are enjoying the forum so far! :)

    I've really enjoyed these BT headphones - the loop goes behind your head on the lower neck & contains the BT antenna - unfortunately it is 'one size' fits all approach but for my head/neck, I've worn them up to an hour w/o being uncomfortable - use them most often while walking/jogging on a treadmill - stay on and sound is fine to my ears. I listen to music on my iPod which I can keep on the floor in my gym tote bag - GREAT to be 'cordless' in this situation!

    As to battery life, I'm uncertain - i.e. I've listened up to a few hours and then will do a recharge - comes w/ a mini-USB plug and wall AC adapter; the technical details are listed at Amazon HERE - states up to 14 hours of listening time, so I've obviously not tested them to that extent! I've tried them w/ my cell phone w/o a problem, so definitely will work in that setting, but you may want one of those 'one-ear' options?

    Not sure what is available in Bulgaria but would be quite interested to know what you may purchase there - please post back & good luck! :)
