Best Airline Headphones?

Mon Oct 27, 2008 3:41 am

Which airline(s) would you say has/have the best:

1) Noise-cancelling headphones for premium-class passengers;

2) General headphones, particularly for coach passengers.

This could be evaluated on the basis of comfort (ear bud vs. behind-the-ear), ability for music/sound to pass through, the ability to help block out sounds from the airplane (i.e. crying baby, jet engines, etc.), durability (how long it lasts), whether it's worth the value (on airlines where you have to pay for the headphones), and/or other factors.

Thanks for your thoughts!

I have to admit that the best headphones for premium-class in my opinion goes to CX. They are very comfortable and has the noise canceling feature which makes it quieter and better sound quality. I'm sure that other airlines may have the same quality or better but definately not BA, LH, UA.
