Lufthansa has entered into a long term partnership with HARMAN International Industries to equip passengers with an aviation-certified adaptation of AKG N60 NC (noise-cancelling) headphones.
From January 2017, all business class seats on Lufthansa flights will be outfitted with active noise-cancelling headphones from AKG, which meet the RTCA-DO160G standard and are certified for all current and new planes including Airbus A350 and Boeing 777.
HARMAN will support the repair, service or replacement of headphones as needed for an initial term of five years. The headphones are made of material such as aluminium, memory foam and leather to provide a lightweight and comfortable listening experience.
“Whether enjoying movies, music, games, or any of Lufthansa’s in-flight entertainment offerings, business cabin passengers will enjoy a luxurious and immersive audio experience through HARMAN’s award-winning AKG headphones,” said Michael Mauser, EVP and president of the HARMAN lifestyle audio division. “This is the first initiative in what we expect will be a long-term partnership with Lufthansa, to provide future HARMAN connected technologies to equip the organisation and its passengers.”
