Wireless Audio set up on a PC

I want to be able to listen to my German podcasts wirelessly on my school computer.  We are not allowed to load anything on the school computer.

1.  Is there some kind of wireless USB device I can attach to the computer to create the wireless part.

2.  If so, what kind of headphones would I be able to get.  They don't have to be top dollar.

If you can't install anything on the computer, then you will not be able to use anything that requires the computer to do something other than play audio in the normal way. So Bluetooth is not an option.

However if you just think of the computer like it was your hifi, then you can buy all kinds of wireless headphones that work over infra-red or FM - as an example here's lots of choice from eBay.  

You could plug the dongle into the audio-out on anything, not just the computer, so you will also get wireless headphones for your mp3 player, your home hifi... etc into the deal.
