If you are looking at the audience carrying smart phones..

I recently worked a on a project where we wrote a custom OSC Android app 
that sent control data to the patch and an app called SoundWire that 
received audio on the phone and ran in the background. All communication 
was over a WiFi network we setup. Latency did obviously exist but it was 

The audio server app runs on Linux and Windows (no OSX unfortunately) 
and can have multiple devices connected to it.

I'd be happy to share more details if required.
