Can I use my own headphones on ANA

Sun Sep 08, 2019 6:06 am

I’m flying to BKK next month on ANA. I just bought some new Bose headphones. Does anyone know if I can use them on ANA?

My wife went to BKK and sent me this picture. Even though there are 2 prongs, one seems to be bigger than the other. I was told that sometimes you can plug regular headphones into one of the sockets and It will work fine.

Does anyone have any insight into this?

Update: Sorry I cannot attach the picture

This won't be totally helpful, but from what I *remember*, you can use your own headphones. The two prong thing is more so you can't steal their headphones and use them in your own device, rather than the other way around.

The two prong headphone adapter can be bought on the cheap.

But if it's a new system, I think you can use a 3.5in jack.

Are you sure you didn't get a two prong adaptor with your Bose headphones? I have QC15s currently and have a two prong adaptor in the little zip up pocket in the case. Admittedly they could be from the QC2s or QC3s that I had before that....

The headphones they provide are single prong, so the double prong sockets aren't really necessary anymore. But yes, you can use your own headphones, and you will get stereo sound.
