I am assuming bluetooth headphones are lossy or any bluetooth stream but wifi media sharing is not.

I am only assuming though, can someone confirm?

Almost all Bluetooth headphones are lossy as the A2DP protocol support the following Codecs
MPEG-1,2 Audio
ATRAC (Sony)
All of them are lossy compression.

Proprietary protocols like KLEER use lossless compression.

WiFi has sufficient bandwidth to stream lossless.
Not to be mistaken for all audio streaming over Ethernet or WiFi being lossless!
