Hello everyone. Can anyone who has recently flown MH business class advise me whether or not the headphones they offer are of decent quality? I use Bose QuietComfort 35, but my hand luggage will be quite full on this itinerary SYD-KUL-LHR, and I have to discard some items. Your thoughts would be most appreciated!

I'm yet to see an airline with quality NC headphones. Given that Bose NC headphones cost $300 to $500, you can't expect any airline to have much in terms of quality.

Pack the QC35s... I've lost count of how many replacement pairs of headphones I've needed to ask for on MH flights!

If I can’t fit mine then I wear it around my neck till I get
onboard then they go on my head or storage. Just needed to take them off for
security and never had a problem. I do it almost every flight.

Bring your QC 35's! They are a lifesaver! Put around your neck so you don't have to squeeze it into your carry-on :)
