You’re going on an Airplane Ride! What Fun! While you’re on the plane or in the airport, take some time and note here what you see people wearing and using in the headphone audio arena.
Went to Las Vegas this last week and what do I see on the plane and in the airport? Lots of Apple Airpods or knockoffs of same.
There was one person with some larger white round things, about 3/8 inch thick by 3/4 inch round things. At first I thought they might be the Galaxy Buds, but no. Seemed to work with his phone, but also with a smaller white media device - I couldn’t read the brand.
What I did NOT see were all the BOSE headphones, or even SONY noise reducing phones that were common a couple of years ago, although they are still in the airport vending kiosks.
A lot of people still use the earbuds that came wired with their phones. Nothing fancy caught my eye.
I used my Sennheiser IE 40 Pro for on the plane - no mic, but I didn’t expect to take calls… They don’t want you doing internet telephony even if you buy wireless on the plane.
I don’t like those Airpods - they look goofy. But when I looked em up, they are fashionable. But then again so are big holes in earlobes.
