Default Can't find wireless headphones...

I want wireless headphones and all I can mostly find are those earmuff type. Ideally I want a transmitter with RCA inputs and a receiver that I can plug any set of ear buds into. I want them for working out so any buds I use get nasty before long and I have a near endless supply of those crappy airline buds which are just fine for what I'm using them for. Of the few earbud types I can find they are hard wired so in order to replace them I'd have to buy a whole new setup plus they only seem to be able to plug into ipods which seems very strange since you have to clip on the receiver anyway which isn't any smaller than an ipod.

Maybe I'm googling the wrong thing but I can't find anything and I find it hard to believe that there isn't a demand for this type of wireless heaphones... unless people like those big earmuffs.

That's very close to what I want but it appears the audio needs to be encoded in certain formats from a cell phone for this to work. I want something I can listen to the TV.

I wonder why they do crap like that.. I have a set of bluetooth (plantronics) headphones with a mic that will only work with one of my cell phones... What a waste.
