First, I'm not aware of many/any credible examples of headphones using a Wifi band (i.e. not Bluetooth/Kleer/etc...). Second as others have pointed out, you run into limitations with what you can put into a headphone housing. I was adamantly against wireless(in particular bluetooth) for many years but the technology is improving. I actually purchased a pair of the Sony MDR 1000X for travel purposes. While they sound better than any other pair of wireless/NC or NC headphones I have tried, they still only compete in the $150 to $200 wired class on sound quality. With LDAC getting baked into future Android releases we may finally get decent sound out of a wireless connection... but we'll have to wait to see on that one.
