Do you use wireless headphones?

If so, then I'd like to hear from you! See, I've been using wired headphones for... well, let's just say a really long time. I love them. I love getting great sound, and I've never really had a problem with wires, especially when I'm playing stuff from my phone. About the only time it's a problem is when I'm wired to my laptop or when playing my guitar. The latter doesn't really have a good solution (yet), but the former does. I'm thinking of getting the Bose SoundLink around-ear II, which I've heard and good things about. That's mainly to replace the pair I use at the office, which are heavy, uncomfortable, and have a dangling cable (which I've jerry-rigged to be less of a pain).

I'm less clear on the value of wireless headphones for more general use. When I'm running, I just run the cable through my shirt and the keep the phone in my pocket. Problem solved. Same thing with my EarPods when I'm talking on the phone. Traveling seems like it would be the worst because you'd have to deal with recharging batteries. I'd love to get a pair of AirPods just to mess around with, but at $160US that's not happening unless I see some value.

So, what do you use wireless headphones for? Do you find they're a better experience than wired headphones? What problems have you run into?
