Airline In-flight Entertainment Headsets, Passenger Amenities, Toiletries and Passenger Comfort Products
AVID introduced the world’s first in-flight entertainment headsets in 1962. We remain the pioneer and leading IFE headset supplier to the world’s airline industry.
Our manufacturing expertise has allowed AVID to expand our product offerings to other in-flight items such as amenity kits, comfort items, on board catering products, children’s game packs and so much more.
AVID Airline Products was established as a division of the original AVID, which stands for Audio Visual Instructional Devices, in 1951. The airline division was an early manufacturer of airline passenger control units in our Rhode Island facility, which also produced premium consumer speakers, educational listening devices, and metal stampings for the three other divisions of the company. Because of this expertise, AVID was asked to produce the world’s first IFE headset by TWA in 1961, and soon after was producing the first and only IFE headsets in the world. Today, AVID is a privately owned corporation in Middletown, Rhode Island, and among the world’s leading manufacturers of inflight entertainment and comfort items.
Our product line has expanded since our start in 1951 to include comfort items such as amenity kits, pillows, pillow covers, blankets, hot towels, sleep suits, airsick bags, lavatory soap, RON kits and children’s items. Catering items include disposable and rotable dishware, cutlery kits, atlas trays, plastic cups, salt and pepper shakers. Standard services consist of worldwide warehousing, distribution, and “vendor inventory management”.
Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Active noise-cancelling headphones reduce unwanted ambient sounds (i.e., acoustic noise) by means of active noise control (ANC). This involves using one or more microphones placed near the ear (inside the headset), along with electronic circuitry which uses the microphone signal to generate an “anti-noise” signal. When the anti-noise signal is produced by the speaker driver in the headphone, destructive interference cancels out the ambient noise as heard within the enclosed volume of the headphone.
AVID offers a wide variety of models in the Active Noise Cancellation line. Active Noise Cancellation Headsets can be produced with any plug type as defined by ARINC and are compatible with all IFE systems. Please refer to the Audio Jack Guide Book Guide to determine your specification requirements.
AVID’s Active Noise Cancellation product line ranges from low cost options up to retail quality. They are available with foam of leatherette ear pads. Please contact us for additional information in regards to our extensive product line and current models available in stock.
Passive Noise Reduction Headphones
Passive Noise Reduction headphones are a lower cost way to prevent ambient noise without the need for electronic circuitry or a microphone. Passive noise cancellation uses sound proofing methods such as tightly sealed ear cups that cover the entire ear to reduce the ability of hearing background noises.
