Connecting to in-flight entertainment systems

The audio output connections on airline audio systems vary, but they typically have dual or single 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) output jacks.

Note: Airline audio may not equal the high quality audio you experience from a home stereo or portable source.

Connecting to dual output jacks

Plug the headphone cord into the dual-plug adapter and insert it into the dual output jacks.

Connecting to a single output jack

Pivot the movable plug so that it snaps in place against the adapter body. Plug the headphone cord into the adapter and insert it into the single output jack.

The dual-plug adapter lowers the volume levels of strong audio output signals that are common on airline systems. If you find that the volume level is too low, remove the adapter and plug the headphone cord directly into the 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) output jack.

WARNING: Use only the Bose® airline adapter to connect headphone to airplane seat jacks. DO NOT use adapters intended for mobile phones as this could result in personal injury such as burns or property damage due to overheating. Remove and disconnect immediately if you experience warming sensation or loss of audio.
