Sennheiser Middle East has announced a partnership with Etihad Airways to be the exclusive provider of headsets for the airline's premier cabin. Under the agreement, Sennheiser's PXC 480 will soon be available for passengers travelling in Etihad Airways' The Residence, the world's first and only private luxury three room suite on a commercial aircraft. Residence guests will be able to listen to their favourite music and movies with Sennheiser's signature sound quality whilst in an oasis of calm thanks to the proprietary NoiseGard hybrid adaptive noise cancellation.
"The opportunity to partner with Etihad Airways allows us to contribute to an experience that goes beyond just sound. With the PXC 480 we have crafted a premium headphone that brings our leadership in high-quality audio to address the travel needs of the most discerning set of customers. For Etihad guests seeking the ultimate way to travel, the PXC 480 will prove to be the perfect companion", says Eric Denise, Sennheiser Senior Vice President Market Development.
Set over 125 square feet, The Residence offers a lounge, bathroom with a shower and a separate bedroom. The private double bedroom features a bedside table, two personal storage drawers and a full length wardrobe, and is certified for two guests - a completely unique travel experience, akin to private jet travel, but on a commercial airliner.
Etihad Airways Vice President Marketing Partnerships, Patrick Pierce, said: "Enhancing our guest proposition is one of the key drivers of this partnership. Aligning with Sennheiser provides premium guests flying in the world's most exclusive cabin a best-in-class audio product to further improve their experience in The Residence."
