They are fine. I've even slept with them on. Perfectly comfortable.

It depends on the aircraft.


On the A380's they're a bit heavy and I had major issues with sound and the actual noise canceling but the A350's seem to have a different model which is closer to what NZ provide and rather basic and a much better headset.

I think they are fine to use. Depends on what you are used to. If it means it is an easier pack and limits checked luggage the headphones on board will be sufficient.

Agree with brettepi

If you have a pair of Bose then definitely take them.
The others are quite good but the Bose are better - depending on which model of course.
I always take my own Bose " Quiet comfort 3 " and always have wonderful sound with no outside noise ( or very little ).

I would just bring my own and wear them onboard to save space, you never know when you will need them on your travels

I noticed some difference between my own noise cancelling headphones and SIA’s. Mine might be old though, but I do like Singapore’s noise cancelling headphones.

Take your own.

I found the ones on the A350 pretty average to be honest. I always take my own anyway, especially if I want to sleep.

Just back from Syd/Sin/MXP return in Business, and the head phones were fine, did not like the sleeping position at all,though.The storage and entertainment were very good.Food was average and book the Cook sort of ok as they did not have what we ordered , cabin crew were excellent.

Thank you all for the initial feedback.
