Microsoft is announcing a big expansion for the availability of its Surface products today. The company is bringing the latest Surface devices — the Pro 6, Laptop 2, and Studio 2 — to 20 new markets today. And if that wasn’t enough, the company is also bringing its premium headphones to 8 new markets next month.
Microsoft’s $350 Surface Headphones, which first launched back in October and went on sale in November for customers in the United States, is coming to 8 new regions. These new 8 markets include Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and Switzerland. The headphones launched in the United Kingdom shortly after being available in the United States, by the way.
The availability of the Surface Headphones should be welcome for customers in these 8 regions. The headphones have been received very well so far in terms of reviews, and it supposedly provides really good audio quality, going head-to-head with products like the Bose QuietComfort 35. Either way, here’s a recap of what the Surface Headphones provide:
Surface Headphones include a fairly 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.
Microsoft isn’t saying exactly when the Surface Headphones will be available in these regions, and although pricing details for each of the new regions are available from their respective Microsoft Store sites, the availability date remains unknown.
