Wireless Headphones - Best Bang for Buck?

I've started looking for a pair of on-ear or over-ear wireless (bluetooth?) headphones as my new daily driver but there's so many options out there and many recommendations for companies I'm not familiar with.
Looking for bluetooth headphones that are on or over ear, decent battery life (is >8hrs a thing?), can be used "wired", comfortable, and offer a well-rounded GOOD sound. I'd be willing to spend $100-$200 unless there's something amazing above the $200 mark that is a "must have".
My regular-use headphones are M50's, Fostex's TH-X00, Beyer DT990's, and Shure 310 IEM's. These wireless headphones would be for on-the-go, travel (plane, train, automobile), and office use. I listen to pretty much every genre of music.

id say either sony mdr 1000x or the bose qc35
Can I ask what your use-case is @wiggles?

If you already have headphones you like I would recommend the Creative Sound Blaster E3. I freaking love this little tool for so many different reasons, and this is one of them. I've had mine for over a year now and it's great for turning any headphones into wireless headphones (even ones that are hard to drive). I also love being able to use it during travel so my GF and I can watch / listen to the same movie on the flight easily. :)
Thanks for the suggestion! The headphones will be used for everything like walking the dog (ala on-the-go), sitting in the office while I'm working, and on planes.

These headphones would likely also replace my M50's. I've had my M50's for 10 years but they're finally starting to fall apart. Honestly, if I could get wireless M50's I would.
