headphones on Virgin Atlantic?

Hi, Are the headphone sockets on Virgin a generic size and could you take your own and would they fit? Their headphones are not comfortable and quite often don't work properly. Thanks for any help

Go on to eBay and buy a headphone adapter for airplanes. it will conver the 2 pin plug to a 1 pin plug and just pop ur own headphones into the adaptor and off you go.

I have bee doing this for year in travel lol

Completely agree about Virgin headphones. We took our own and didn't need an adaptor so I think the socket must be generic.

Yesh I agree, I used my ipod headphones on our last flight. I don't think you'll need an adapter, but if they're really cheap maybe get one just in case.
