Default Looking for multi-purpose wireless headphones

After trying to read through all the various threads, I still don't see what I'm looking for, so although I only visit this site once or twice a year, I thought I'd throw out my question - you guys have been helpful in the past.

Essentially, I recieved a pair of Bose QC15 headphones for Christmas. However, the wife thought they were wireless, as the main reason I'm looking at new headphones is for a wireless option (I have about 3-4 pairs of noice cancelling earbuds) so I can watch recorded TV and movies at night when she goes to sleep.

While there are many wireless headphones for TV, I'm thinking of a few additional usages - in that I travel for work and frequently watch movies on the flights (thus noice cancelling is nice), and the idea of Bluetooth connection to my phone (Galaxy Note II) is interesting - but I don't think I can use Bluetooth with my Onkyo TX-SR705 receiver. Is there some device I can put on an output jack on the Onkyo to convert into Bluetooth? I've seen many devices that RECEIVE Bluetooth signal to be used throughout my home theater/audio system, but none that convert the other way?

The idea of being able to use a closed pair of headphones (to keep from bothering others), wireless, with possible noise cancellation is appealing - just can't seem to find any here in Orange County, CA to try out live.

Does anyone have any ideas? I think I'm going to need to move to the $400-500 range (up from the $300 for the price of the Bose) to do this, but need to make sure things will work with all aspects. The TV requirement is the largest - and the primary reason to begin with.

Oh, and they need to be RF or something that travels through cabinets. I have my A/V equipment in a cabinet where I keep the doors closed while watching (which I could do when I upgraded my Logitech remote to the RF version a couple of years ago).

Any help you guys can provide would be great...just trying to figure this stuff out (or decided if I'll buy the $1.50 audio jack adapter and just use the corded Bose headphones and plug them into my Onkyo headphone jack

Very thank you for your message, I think Beats wireless Headphones earmuffs control, even so you do not pull out your music player.Take the call to switch tracks, skip songs, adjust the volume from your dr dre studiobeats headphone cable. For your phone or music player, but no more search to find the right song.
