I'm looking for headphones that have both bluetooth and traditional connectors. It's a very confusing market. 

 

I want to find the goldilocks point between price and performance. Just about every set of headphones I have ever bought have broken because of flimsy plastics with nothing going wrong with the speakers themselves, so build quality is important too.

I don't use wireless headphones myself, but I do rate InnerFidelity's Wall of Fame, which is constantly updated and is happy to recommend headphones from $20 to $5000. Their wireless headphone recommendations are here and it looks like all four options meet your criteria.

It's kinda sacrificing a lot, but I can't go back to wrangling cables when I'm out and about. With a decent DAC at home you can plug them in and get more sound quality.

Grado is about to release their first bluetooth headphones:

If I bought bluetooth headphones this is what I'd get.

I got some Cowin E8s that I can recommend but for me it's all about ear comfort and I need to have my headphones completely around my lobes and not on them.

I usually stick with Sennheiser for my headphones needs. They ain't done me wrong yet.
