I am searching for best solution to listen to TV and music output in my home gym while working out. It needs to be wireless. I currently use a cardiotheatre FM modulator that works pretty well but lots of interference. I was thinking bluetooth but cant find an ac plug in bluetooth transmitter. I want to be able to have fairly light headphones or plug earbud headphones into my iphone if thats possible so it receives the bluetooth signal.

I think the best solution may be infrared headphones.   You hook the transmitter up to your stereo, or your computer, or whatever's generating the noise...and as long as you have a clear line of sight between the transmitter and your headphones, the sound is pretty good.  There are lots to choose from; just google for infrared headphones.

infared arent great - i tried some and not onlywere they more bulky - (they are more for an audiophile sitting on couch listenting to music) they are hot and big ear covers.
I want more of an earbud type. the comment by tbsgadi has a good site as potential headphnes re size, recharchable, stereo - but the biggest unanswered question is still how to get the audio into bluetooth - ie i need a bluetooth transmitter to plug my tv and stereo into ! and it cant be like the little ipod ones because unless mistaken they are battery - I have looked at logitechs one also
Any other ideas
