Bluetooth transmission speed or delay

Does anybody know how much delay there is in bluetooth transmission systems? I have an electronic drum kit that routes to a sound board and then I listen in on wired head phones to get the full mix. How much time loss would there be if I used a bluetooth transmitter and bluetooth headphones instead? Would I hear everything with a slight delay?

I write an application that uses bluetooth serial links. We use a variety of radios like among others.

The data rate is not much better than a dialup modem so the lesson is that while its grand for cell phone headsets and listening to some mp3 player you don't want to use BT when lag would be detrimental.

Thanks for the input. I thought that might be the answer. I'll keep using the cords.
