lets see, as far as the switching goes you would just need to change the output in windows or in the media player.
from the media player you would send the audio to a binaural renderer like Waves NX.
the htpc would output to a bluetooth transmitter. I believe a bluetooth 5.0 transmitter and headphones can connect multiple headphones at the same time.
and then any wireless headphones with bluetooth 5.0 like an Audeze Mobius.
I have null experience with bluetooth and windows so i cant advise on what transmitter to purchase.
I believe creatives sxfi will be adding this functionality in the near future, a base that accepts 5.1 and outputs surround to multiple wireless headphones.
You can also split the signal with an optical toslink splitter to separate wireless headphone bases or split analog to separate bluetooth 4.0 transmitters
