Surface Headphones Go on Sale in the UK

Posted on November 30, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware, Microsoft, Microsoft Surface with 11 Comments

Microsoft’s Surface Headphones went on sale in the United States not too long ago. The premium, $350 headphones aren’t going to be as widely available as some of the other Surface products, though it’s launching in the United Kingdom today, as first reported by Neowin. Coming in at £329, the Surface Headphones compete with some of the biggest brands like Bose.

The premium headphones have received good reviews so far, and it includes a unique feature: the ability to configure the level of noise cancellation up to 13 levels. Using the dial integrated into the headphone, you can control the noise cancellation levels in 13 different levels which is a really cool feature if I am being honest.

Microsoft’s Surface Headphones include other features like Type-C charging, Microsoft’s Swift Pair tech for quick pairing, up to 15 hours of battery life, Cortana integration, and 40 mm free-edge speaker drivers. The only thing missing here, I’d say, are different color variations — right now, the device is only available on the regular Surface grey/white accent (“Platinum”), and there’s also no black version…yet.

Surface Headphones in the UK are selling for £329, and that’s about the same as most premium headphones out there. The device is available through the official Microsoft Store, as well as Currys and John Lewis.

    Kudos on providing more coverage on this product than Paul and Brad combined.

    The reviews I've seen place it above the Bose and below the top of the line Sony in the Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones market which are all at about the same price. Seems like a pretty good product.

    MS have zero audio heritage, so are asking a lot with this price. I'd by Bose or Sennheiser over these any day of the week.
