HARMAN e Lufthansa hanno recentemente stretto una collaborazione per portare l’audio di qualità in volo. Lufthansa offrirà infatti ai suoi passeggeri cuffie AKG N60 NC, modello che implementa anche la cancellazione del rumore, a bordo dei suoi aerei.
Le AKG N60 NC, già disponibili all’acquisto da diversi mesi, saliranno a bordo della flotta Lufthansa da gennaio 2017 e saranno offerte soltanto ai passeggeri in business class. L’accordo, che durerà almeno cinque anni, prevede che HARMAN si occupi anche della manutenzione delle cuffie.

L’obiettivo è infatti quello di fornire un’esperienza audio premium anche a chi non vuole portarsi dietro cuffie di alta qualità; un vero peccato, però, che l’iniziativa non riguardi anche le altre classi.
