Emirates headphones

We are flying economy Emirates to Christchurch to Barcelona in August (777-300 and A380). Can anyone tell us what kind of headphones they use..one or two pronged and the quality? Thanks

Can't remember plugs but the headsets in economy are just the normal flimsy headphones. Invest in noise canceling ones

I've never used them myself, but more & more often, I'm having to listen to the noise emanating from people using the headphones around me

Twin pronged headphones of poor quality in economy.

If you have your own headset just order a double pin adapter from Amazon or ebay.
