In this photo of the Business Class upper deck of a KLM 744, you can see that the seats all have foot long hoses of some sort sticking out of the shoulder area.
I've never seen these hose objects before and I'm curious as to what their pursose is. They look like the microphones that the person uses who takes your order at a fast food drive through.
I haven't got a clue what they are. I'll take a guess that they're a little speaker so you can hear the movie you're watching without wearing annoying headphones.
I'm sure some has the answer. What are these things?
