Microsoft revealed today that Surface Earbuds won’t ship until Spring 2020. The good news? They’re adding a white color option too.
“Product-making is about the relentless pursuit to get all the details right, which takes time…sometimes more than we planned on,” Microsoft’s Panos Panay tweeted. “To ensure we deliver the best possible experience for you, our fans & customers, Surface Earbuds will now launch worldwide in Spring 2020.”

Microsoft announced Surface Earbuds at its October hardware event. At the time, it said that it would ship the in-ear headphones this holiday season, and that they would cost $250. They are very much the product I said that Microsoft should make back in January, when it was only offering the large, over-the-ear Surface Headphones.
Unfortunately, they will not arrive in time.
Now, Surface Earbuds will ship in Spring 2020—so possibly as late as June—and they will come in both the originally announced gray color and in white. I assume the price hasn’t changed.
