How do bands listen to the same thing when they're playing live?

My friends and I are in a band and we plan on performing in a way that would require us to simultaneously listen to the same backing track without the audience hearing the backing track. We've considered using headphones and multiple splitters, but that restricts our physical mobility and forces us to drape a lot of wires across the stage.

I don't want to get into the details of the performance - it's primarily a novelty - but the cheaper the solution, the better; and wireless, in-ear would be perfect. Are there any cheap in-ear systems? What should we be looking for? What's the absolute cheapest way to do this?
