They absolutely are awful. I wonder how little Delta actually pays for them.

2022 and people still use the cheap DL headphones in Main/C+? Super easy to carry wireless headphones or a 3.5 adapter/splitter to use your own headphones that I would hope are 100x better than the 10 cent DL ones.

But then, no one would know you had them so they arent going to be judgmental.

I have a pair of pink Anker Soundcore Life Q30 headphones and a TROND Bluetooth transmitter to use the IFE system.

You can use a Bluetooth transmitter. There are a few available on Amazon.

Is that the point the poster was making? Kind of doubt it but as long as I'm packing something extra, it will be wired headphones.

I think it's great that Delta is giving out free headsets for those who forgot to bring their own (or their dongle ran out of juice)

I thought this happened a while ago. I was offered free headphones in MC on a LAS-MSP flight in mid-April. I didn't take them because I always have a pair of wired earbuds and my bluetooth NC headphones.

Some FA didn't bother to deal with charging.
