Passengers travelling in business class on Hainan Airlines’ domestic services will now be offered Space One noise-cancelling headsets from UK-based hi-fi brand KEF and Porsche Design.

The new headphones, which were first launched in late 2016, will be available on Hainan Airlines flights operated by aircraft outfitted with the airline’s Hai Studio in-flight entertainment system, which include its Boeing 787 Dreamliners and Airbus A330s.

Since its launch, the Space One has been generally praised for its sleek design and sound quality.

Hainan Airlines has made no mention of the headphones rolling out to business class on its international routes at this stage, so travellers likely will continue to see the Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones currently offered on these services.

The upgrade to the Space One headphones forms part of Hainan Airlines wider enhancement of its “Hai” services and products. These include international in-flight catering in the form of Hai Chef; and Bulgari amenity kits, a duvet and mattress, and new pyjamas from fashion designer Laurence Xu as part of its Hai Dream offering.

Xu notably was also behind the airline’s new uniform, which it unveiled in July last year.
