I picked up an inexpensive pair of bluetooth headphones (SCOSCHE HZ5 TUNESTREAM). It pairs easily with the iPad and works great with most applications. However, when I startup some applications (such as Skype), the bluetooth link is severed to the headset and I can't get it to resync easily.

I tried to find information on this - unsuccessfully. Is this a problem with the headphones, the Bluetooth implementation on the iPad or the application itself?

not definitive, but I believe it's the bluetooth stack on the iDevice

same thing happens with the ipod touch

apple doesn't really want to bastardize iphone sales by allowing easy skype mobile access on the other devices

Yeah - I find a "normal" Bluetooth earpiece (mono - for phone use) is rock-solid on the iPhone. But other bluetooth stereo headphones are a bit more sketchy for listening to tunes on my iStuff. They work, but sometimes seem to "forget" for a while and it takes a couple of power cycles of the headphones, but they always do come back.

I am finding that once the iPad looses connection with the headphones, it won't reconnect. When I power off the headphones, they won't turn back on unless I connect them to "charge" - even for a few seconds. Then they will turn on and connect fine with the iPad. So either the headphones are flakey, or the iPad is screwing up the headphones so bad they need to be "rebooted".

A little disappointing.
