No, these speakers are not wireless. I already had the room wired for the speakers from my prior surround sound system with the speaker brackets already on the wall so it was a quick changeover for me.
Kim, I hope your husband knows that "wireless" speakers are way more of a hassle than wired. Please refer to this article: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13645_3-20091634-47/the-wireless-speaker-paradox-they-always-have-wires/
My brother has the LG 6820. While it is somewhat "wireless", the rear speakers are still wired to a central wireless receiver, so you are still running wire from the back surround channels to a central receiver...just a separate receiver than the one under your TV.
