I would also like ideas!I currently use a pair of in-ear monitors/earphones [Westone 4] with an extension to make it more comfortable (Triple Flange fitted to help with passive noise isolation) - They come in a small case and are very comfortable as they feed behind your neck/back.

Easy to do with the right dongle.

Good question, my wireless, noise cancelling Beats headphones come with a cable to plug in for these types of situations. But I had wondered about it.Note: Do not buy Beats headphones. The noise cancelling is crap.

I've been using a bluetooth dongle for a while now and it works really well. However, during my time researching the best ones, it became apparent that some of the cheaper ones have a tendency to buffer the audio which essentially results in the audio and picture being out of Sync.
Thanks guys, just ordered one off ebay: http://bit.ly/2sT4M9y

Just a random thought - does the airline you are planning to travel on have a ban on wireless communication devices being used onboard?? Bluetooth is, remember, a two-way radio-based communication system.
