Microsoft Unveils Surface Headphones

Microsoft now makes headphones. Yep.

The company just unveiled the Surface Headphones, a premium headphone that will be available later this year. The device comes with 4 beam-forming microphones that let you interact with Cortana, which is built into the headphones. The device offers adjustable noise cancellation, and you can easily control that using the dial on the headphones.

What’s more, the device comes with automatic play/pause which means it will automatically pause/play the music as you take it off or put it on. It’s pretty much like Apple’s AirPods.

It’s chargeable through USB-C, which, of course, is odd as none of Microsoft’s new Surface devices come with a Type-C port. Either way, the device will be available later this year, starting at $349.
