You could define your own function Select as in

In[1]:=
tsome = {{35, 38}, {2064, 2068}, {2182, 2183}};

mySelect[val_] := Select[tsome, val - 1281 <= #1[[2]] <= val & ]

mySelect[1280]
mySelect /@ {1280}
mySelect /@ {1280, 38}

Out[3]=
{{35, 38}}

Out[4]=
{{{35, 38}}}

Out[5]=
{{{35, 38}}, {{35, 38}}}
