Old Style Headphones

Wed Apr 07, 2004 12:06 pm

Looking for that old airline "air tube" non-electronic headphones sitting in your garage. Sell it to me at eBay. For a school science project.

Oh no, I ain't getting rid mine at all!

They're American Airlines circa 1978.

Delta still uses these old-fashioned headphones on their 767 aircraft.

Actually Delta has gone to the $2 electronic headsets on all flights, they have a nice little detachable adapter, which is the reason why I bought a pair...I can use my $50 radio shack headphones with the adapter just fine...

u know, for such old technolgy they work really well! stereo too =) I know china eastern still uses them on their Md-11's.

I think u can hear a bit of sound comming from the armrests- just no amplified, so you can cheat and lift it up and have audio and don't pay hehe
