Hello.

I have a Yamaha MG10XU mixer, which I use for my PC audio interface. I recently went and got a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones.

How would I transmit the PC audio from the mixer to the headphones, wirelessly? And would it be a good connection? i.e lag-free?
I have been trying to find what I would need by searching the net, but this is a bit out of my comfort zone and I really have no knowledge in the area.
Hoping that someone here will know.
 
I was more wondering if there is any equipment that I can connect to the quarter-inch headphone jack on the mixer, such as a transmitter, which would transmit the sound, from the mixer to the headphones via BlueTooth.
Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/TaoTronics-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Receiver-Simultaneously/dp/B01EHSX28M/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=bluetooth+transmitter+1/4+inch+jack&qid=1566729686&s=gateway&sr=8-2
Considering that these headphones have Bluetooth and wired interface, both approaches should work. Of course, the wireless link @Ralston18 mentions means your headphones will be no longer wireless ;)

The Yamaha mixer does not have wireless capabilities.

So you will need some sort of audio transmitter/receiver device to take the mixer's output and transmit to headphones.

E.g.:

Any specific product and setup configuration will depend on the details and overall audio requirements.

Look for products that appear suitable, then read reviews and the applicable User Guides/Manuals.

Thanks for your reply, Ralston18.

I am aware that the Yamaha does not have built-in wireless transmission, I was more wondering if there is any equipment that I can connect to the quarter-inch headphone jack on the mixer, such as a transmitter, which would transmit the sound, from the mixer to the headphones via BlueTooth.
