binoculars for wide-set eyes
So far, I'm considering the Audubon Intrepid 10x40 (57-74mm ipd). But I know some Oberwerks go that high. Are they any better? And Nikons -- would any of them work?
A lot of the manufacturers don't list IPDs in their specs on their web sites. And some of them call it other things, and one (I can't remember which) lists it in inches. Is it any wonder I'm confused?

You're right. IP is a spec often downplayed by many manufacturers, but it is a serious problem if you have an unusual IP measurement. Ar 69mm, though, you should be all right with most binos. For instance, the Pentax 8x40 PCF WPII, http://www.opticsplanet.com/noname.html lists an IP out to 72mm.
