I always imagined that eventually speakers and headphones will get their own miniature processor board and you'll connect them directly into your wireless network such that they'll have independently addressable IPs.

Then, you'll configure the list of speakers you want each PC to use, and their relative locations (which might just be acquired via GPS in the speakers). So... you can play music to any speaker in the house, or have the speaker handle mixing of multiple outputs itself (ex.: Tell the kids it's dinner time through their speakers while they're listening to music).

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
