Microsoft announced Surface Headphones last month. Now the active noise cancelling headphones have been available for preorder. Like the design? Let’s keep checking.
The Surface Headphones are a pair of ANC Bluetooth headphones that measures 8.03 x 7.68 x 1.89 inches and weighs 10.2 ounces. As we can see from the images, the on-ear headphones show off an elegant and minimalistic appearance defined by the streamlined contours and solid gray matte finished exterior, while the metallic accents deliver some sleek modern aesthetics to the headphones.
Meanwhile, two soft, breathable earcups, padded headband and lightweight design ensure the headphones deliver a comfortable, balanced fit. And the foldable earcups make Surface Headphones easy to carry.
Microsoft Surface Headphones come equipped with two 40mm free-edge speaker drivers in order to produce clear, balanced stereo audio, and a control knob has been perfectly integrated with the earcup so that you can effortlessly adjust the built-in active noise cancellation based on different situations, while integrated sensors allow you to easily control your music playback with simple touch control.
Moreover, the wireless headphones automatically play or pause your playback when you take them off or put them on your head. In addition to answering handsfree calls, the built-in microphone also allow you to ask Cortana to control your playback, search the web for answers, set reminders and more. Apart from these, the built-in rechargeable battery offers up to 15 hours of playback between charges, and fast charging allows for almost an hour of music in just 5 minutes. An included 1.2m audio cable also allows the earphones to work in wired mode when they’re out of juice.
Microsoft Surface Headphones are priced at $349.99 USD. If you’re interested, jump to the product page for more details.
