Eurostar has unveiled new music system to help passengers relax

Some 39 per cent blame the noise made by other travellers as being one of the biggest stress factors, according to the poll of 2,000 UK adults.

The research was commissioned by tech giant Sony to mark the launch of a music service being trialled on Eurostar trains.

The Sound Menu features playlists designed to help passengers prepare, relax and focus as they travel to their destination.

We know that different music creates different moods,

It was developed in partnership with Dr Alexandra Lamont, a senior lecturer in music psychology at Keele University.

She said: “We know that different music creates different moods, and the traveller can immerse themselves in music that suits or changes their mood to make the journey pass more pleasantly.

“Being able to eliminate these noises and replacing them entirely with the sound of your choice leads to an all-round more relaxed experience.”

Eurostar’s head of digital, Neil Roberts, said: “Our onboard entertainment system gives travellers more than 300 hours of free content, all available through their own device.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve our passengers’ journeys, and the new sound menu created by Sony offers our travellers a way to get more out of their time on board, whether it’s focusing on work or relaxing after a busy day.”
