Earlier this summer Delta rolled out their new Billboard earbuds. As of July 1st, 2014 they were made available “on all IFE equipped flights” worldwide. While a minor thing like an improved earbud isn’t noticeable to a majority of passengers, the new earbuds are a huge and noticeable improvement over the old earbuds.
Delta’s Inflight Billboard Earbuds Review
For those who travel regularly, some form of noise canceling headset, like the Bose Noise Canceling Headset, is a must have. But not everyone needs the improved quality or cost of the more expensive products. Nor does every trip warrant bringing along the noise canceling headset.
So if you don’t have a headset, forgot yours, lost yours, don’t worry. Delta has a new improved headset.
The new Billboard earbuds have a noticeable added soft piece that affixes into your ear to make the background noise less noticeable.
You can see from the new earbuds below, they have a new piece compared to the older ones below.
New Billboard Earbuds:
I always keep the little double connection adapter for my noise canceling set in case I lose one, I’ll have an extra.
Old Delta Earbud:
Delta’s new free Billboard Earbuds are a huge improvement over the old ones. It’s nice to have them as an option in case your forget your own set or want an extra set in your bag as a backup.
Have you tried the new earbuds yet? What did you think?
