Does this electronic gizmo I want exist?

I'm hard of hearing, and too cheap to buy hearing aids. Mostly it doesn't matter because I live alone and work from home, so my interpersonal interaction is pretty minimal. However, I take riding lessons, and I bought this device like they use for guided tours - the instructor speaks into a small mic and the transmitter sends to an even smaller receiver that has a wired earphone.

The problem is the wire sometimes gets in the way of my riding. I grab it while I'm adjusting my reins, and yank it out of my ear, that sort of thing.

I would like some sort of dongle that makes my receiver a bluetooth transmitter so I can get a wireless earpiece. Does such a thing exist?
