Emirates is to introduce redesigned headsets on all economy flights that are served by the airline's fleet of A380 aircraft from the end of June.
The new rectangle design will offer enhanced audio quality and reduce ambient cabin noise with improved ergonomic ear cushions for passenger comfort. They have been designed to enhance the airline’s award-winning ice in-flight entertainment system for economy.
“Emirates economy class headsets are amongst the best in class for commercial airlines, and we’ve always recognised that sound quality is vitally important in creating an enjoyable entertainment experience," said Patrick Brannelly, divisional VP, customer experience (IFE & connectivity). "This new design will lift the audio quality to a new level, and now customers can completely immerse themselves in the broad variety of entertainment choices offered onboard."
Emirates’ new Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft offer the ice system on larger personal TV screens with HD resolution: 27-inch in First Class, 20-inch in Business Class and 12.1 inch in Economy Class.
There are plans to roll out the new headsets on the Boeing 777 fleet later in the year.
