Wireless Headphone Adapter?

Does anyone have experience with wireless headphone adapters for the IFE? I'm looking for one because the wires tend to get tangled up, and I sometimes just want to pop in my ear buds rather than a bulky headphone.

I'm looking at these in particular:

If anyone has experience with anything like it, I would appreciate hearing about them (especially in regards to delay, and whether the sound quality gets much worse than using a wired connection).

I ended up springing for the RHA adapter. It was just more convenient to have USB C charging and 16 hours battery life (perfect for the route I fly most often). Also helps that it's lower profile when plugged in.

What are your experience with different airlines regarding the use of Bluetooth in-flight? It seems the rules differ from airline to airline and even sometimes do not make sense. For example an airline requires that phones are in flight mode but since they offer WiFi they explicitly allow the use of WiFi. On the same hand they do not say anything about the use of Bluetooth.

I've never had Bluetooth restrictions when it comes to airlines, even during take off and landing. I usually only fly Asian airlines though.
