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?
You could just send an uncompressed stream digitally. AFAIK lossless compression will run into some latency/compression tradeoffs.
Sennheiser RS 160/180/220 for home use, all using Kleer technology.
I don't know how much latency you're willing to put up with, but for watching video it's negligible. For instruments though it's pretty much unusable (tried with my electric guitar).
I don't know about the RS 170 (is there such a model?) but Automatic Level Control (ALC) can be deactivated on the RS 180 with the second button from the bottom on the dock. As for the RS 220, the manual says it uses "uncompressed" 16 bit, 48 kHz PCM.
• Transmission type: FM stereo
Android + Soundwire app and use any headphone you like.
The RS120 is also not digital.

I never took them too seriously but only for TV watching, but if you have line of sight and don't have to be too far from the source, could they produce less hiss or more fidelity than the RF headphones?
I doubt the Android solution would be less laggy than the Kleer headphones, which are just laggy enough to not be usable with instruments, but OK for everything else including games.
