New F amenities update?

Hello
Any experiences of flights in F August/September '18 which have the new Bowers & Wilkins headsets and Byredo products?
Thanks
Ian

Yes I have flown it three times but nothing worth writing home about. I would rate it of equal quality to the Bose headsets and same goes for the products

Agreed. 4 flight since 29 August. About the same sound quality, but they sure look better IMHO

B&W look better, but the sound quality is the same as the Bose QC35.

B&W are sitting too tight. For me they are uncomfortable.

I am asking myself how are they cleaned after the flight?

Agree. The notebook is nice.
But the pen is cheap.

Hi again
Thanks for the feedback
Were these on flights other than the new 777-300ER?

I don't find the noise cancellation as good as with my Bose QC20s (could just be that they are in-ear).

They have a dedicated ICE music mix, "The Bowers & Wilkins Superior Sound" playlist, which is actually quite nice to listen to (with I did with my Bose )

The Mrs. says the Byredo products are much more useful than the previous ones.

We first had the new B&W headphones in May on EK017, although the other products were still Bulgari.

Slightly off topic - apologies - I noticed recently that the Emirates app now allows you to create a playlist. I wondered if anyone has tried it and has any views on it. I assume it will be like SQ's in that you'll log into your account on the plane and then be able to access it. If it works it will save a lot of time as we usually have multi sector flights and it's a pain setting it up for every leg.

In the German Emirates App I can't see where I can add a Playlist.

when you click on one of your trips, you will find it by clicking on the ICE menu, just above where you would view your on board dining menu.
