I cant recommend any wireless, because I would always recommend wired headphones. Anything using bluetooth might be good enough for general listening, but probably have too much latency for recording. Which probably rules out 99.9% of the 2020 wireless headphone market :)

As stated above, bluetooth will have too much latency for recording.

However, many (most?) bluetooth headphones allow you you use them with a cable too, so you could probably find a pair that sound good and use them with cable for recording and enjoy the wireless for listening?

This is what I do with my Sennheiser Momentums - plug the cable in for use with my audio interface, but I can remove the cable and use them wirelessly with my phone (or anything with Bluetooth) when I’m in “casual listening” mode.

Your spoilt for choice with blue tooth/wireless for listening. But avoid going down that route for playing/recording instruments. Terrible latency.

 

I have spent a lot of time trying to find what you’ve described. You MAY be able to do it but at a pointlessly phenomenal cost.

 

Get good studio cans for playing. Get decent wireless for popping to the shops.

Non-Bluetooth wireless may have noticeable compression.
