Microsoft Cuts the Price of Surface Headphones by $100

In a sure sign that they are selling poorly, Microsoft has cut the price of Surface Headphones to a more reasonable $250. That’s a $100 price cut.

You can find Surface Headphones at Amazon.com, the Microsoft Store, and other retailers. But I’d appreciate you using my Amazon affiliate link if you are going to purchase a pair.

Microsoft announced Surface Headphones at the October 2018 hardware event at which it also unveiled Surface Studio 2, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Pro 6. In a very brief demo, I found them to be solid and with excellent—and adjustable—noise canceling. But I prefer in-ear noise-canceling headphones, and after calling on Microsoft to make such a product, we found out that Microsoft is indeed planning to do just that.

It’s not clear whether the Surface Headphones price cut impacts those plans. But what is clear is that $350 was just too high of an asking price. So, at the very least, this price cut will make what appears to be a decent pair of over-the-ear noise canceling headphones more affordable.
