    Cords are only a PITA if you don't have them laid out properly, or if too short, or what have you...but I would always rather plug in than use wireless.

    At the console, there's a close by connection. For longer runs when I'm tracking, I have some passive headphone boxes I'll put out near to where I'm standing, so I run a line from the headphone amp to the box, and then plug the headphone in at the box.
    For tracking guitars, I made a harness that has both guitar cord and headphone extension cord with a female connector that ends up right next to the guitar jack. I then have a very short cord from the headphones to that female connector.
    I have headphones that have removable I can use a long one or a short one.
    Works great...the guitar cable and headphone extension cable are both on the same side and move together...there's no headphone cable for me to get tangled up in.

    For tracking they need to be analogue wireless - digital wireless has latency...
