AFAIK most wireless headphones (Blutooth, IR, etc.) incorporate lossy codecs for transmitter-receiver transport, are there any which do that losslessly at 44.1kHz/16bit at least?

What kind of DAW are you using that you need wireless for?

Mostly Ableton, but it's not that I need it, it just would be convenient when rolling between instruments and the computer. I've already broken the cable of decent headphones with this chair on wheels.

Apparently well known to be based on a FM (analog link). Not exactly lossless transport. FWIW the Sennheiser 900 MHz phones have some of the same problems. FM can be done better than this, as it is also used in some middle-line wireless microphones with far better results.

I was hoping for something like FM radio quality at least. Seems like there's quite a room for improvement indeed, curious that no company filled this hole yet.
