FIRST CLASS Singapore Airlines passengers are getting an audio upgrade with the carrier offering wireless Bang and Olufsen headphones to passengers flying in its new Airbus A380 first class suites on flights to Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Zurich and London.
The headphones are variants of Bang and Olufsen’s noisecancelling Beoplay H9i model, which are able to operate for up to 18 hours of playtime and feature an aluminium touch interface, along with real leather and adaptive memory foam on the earpieces.
First class passengers on services that won’t get the wireless headphones aren’t going completely ignored, however, with wired variants of the Beoplay H9i being rolled out to all A380 suites and first class passengers this month. singaporeair.com
