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?

IME there's significant lag with bluetooth though, long enough that it's useless for video. I also had sound quality problems (noise, pops), but that could be the devices themselves.

I would not "upgrade" to bluetooth though. Kleer is much better, including the option to use one transmitter with up to four headphones/receivers. Unnoticeable lag (perfect for video) and auto pairing (after you manually paired first). I use several transmitters with the same headphones/receivers, and as long as the other transmitters are off, they just work together with the one that's on.

That's odd. A2DP has been designed with "low-delay" in mind and SBC supports encoder/decoder delays as low as 4 milliseconds. Maybe the delay you observed is a matter of QoI (quality of implementation).
