I'm working on my new home theater project and I'd appreciate some guidance.
Here's some useful information and requirements:

What are you looking for (Speakers, Subwoofer or Both)?
Speakers, subwoofer and Headset (pair) - As much Wireless as possible
Primary Use: 30% Music, 70% TV & Movies

Desired Configuration: min 2.1, better 5.1

Room Size: 5mx6m (16x20 feet)

Is the room open to other areas of your home:
Yes

Do you already have an AV receiver or amplifier?
No

What's your budget (low to high):
Money not a blocker as long as I get high-quality but not professional level. Say about 2000$ but I can be flexible.

Any special requirements (Wife Acceptance)?
All must be as much wireless as possible
Distance TV-Sofa about 3m (10ft)
TV 65" UHD 4k (toslink and BT 4.2)
The headset must support min 2x pieces since I sometimes watch TV with my wife.
The setup should be able to last many years (high build quality and latest technology standards e.g. WiSA or BT 5.1 Aptx LL)

Thank you!

I am not aware of any single system or platform that will meet all your needs.

Your best bet would obviously be a complete WiSA system, but I’m not aware of any WiSA headphones. I can find none on their site.

Barring that, a WiSA system that has an audio output that could be used for a separate wireless headphone system would be the logical choice, if you can find one.

Next in line would be a standard AVR, but the best you can do with wireless with those is the few that offer wireless rear speakers. You’d still need a separate wireless headphone system, but the AVR would have audio outputs for it.

This question comes up a lot, but while you can distribute media wirelessly through the house, the systems used within a room to play back media simply aren't wireless. Yeah, there have been attempts, and you can do it somewhat if you hove zero concern for how it sounds, or how much it costs. In particular, subwoofers can be wireless, though they still need a power cord. Unfortunately, the reality is that sound systems still rely on wires to send sound to the speakers.

I think I'm going to build a wireless Dolby Atmos Home Theater using Sonos Arc + Sonos SL. On top of that, I'm going to buy the JVC XP EXT1 headphones since many times I'm going to watch movies during the night and cannot disturb the family or the neighbors.

Q1) Has anyone experience with this combo?

Q2) Do I need additional devices? I've read somewhere that the JVC passthrough is suboptimal.

My TV is a Samsung QE65Q65AAUXXN.

Thank you!

Axiom has a line of wireless speakers.

Axiom makes great speakers in general, but I confess I've not used their wireless products, so this is FYI, not a straight recommendation.
