Wireless Headphones Survey: Many Already Planning on Buying

Apple is reportedly working on developing headphones that could connect to phones using both wired and wireless systems. This would make sense given the rumors about the next iPhone potentially being released without a traditional headphone jack. So how many people already own wireless headphones? And how many would be likely to buy them if the next iPhone comes without a headphone jack?
