Just had this crazy idea that instead of being tethered to the above camcorder with a wired headphone I was wondering if plugging into the microphone port a bluetooth dongle might just work with bluetooth headphones.
To be honest I have not seen anywhere on youtube or the internet where this has been tried. if it does the advantages are obvious. May even work on a camera who knows.

IT WORKS YIPPEE.
Has a range of about 30ft max but that is not the point also slight latency of about 0. 3 seconds but tolorable. What a pleasure it is not to be tied down with a cable from earphone to camcorder.
Ok this setup
Manfrotto befree live tripod and on the handle a wired remote control for zoom and stop start
the camcorder Panasonic HC-X1500 with additional handle
the BlitzMax wireless bluetooth dongle
Soundcore Anker Q20 bluetooth wire/wireless headphones
Azden SMX-30V microphone
well I decided to do a stereo sound test using the bluetooth dongle and the wireless bluetooth headphones. Sounds really odd wearing them, the slight latency delay hearing yourself clapping a short time later.
First I went to one side of the setup and clapped my hands then to the other and did the same. this tested the stereo microphone and it worked far better than I expected. The noise in the background is someone cutting the grass
So now I can instantly do a stereo check without having to do any playback first
