Microsoft Now Makes Surface-branded Earbuds

Posted on October 2, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware, Microsoft, Microsoft Surface with 10 Comments

It looks like every other company is getting int other earbuds business. Amazon announced its own Alexa-branded earbuds last month, and today, Microsoft is announcing its own Surface-branded earbuds: the Surface Earbuds.

Microsoft already makes the Surface Headphones, which received rave reviews, and so it makes sense for the company to make earbuds now. Microsoft’s Surface Earbuds are pretty ordinary earbuds, but they will probably sell well to those who buy Surface devices. The earbuds are wireless and work with all platforms.

Surface Earbuds offer 24 hours of battery life (we will see about that). There are 2 microphones per ear, so it can hear you even in noisy environments. It also, um, includes Office integration so you can dictate into Office apps. The earbuds also enable real-time captioning. Microsoft is going for a very interesting take on the smart wireless earbuds with its Surface Earbuds here.

They will available for $249 this Holiday. And yes, that’s really expensive for earbuds.
