Alongside the newly announced Surface Go 2 and Surface Book 3, Microsoft also announced two new audio accessories; The Surface Headphones 2, and the Surface Earbuds.
The Surface Headphones 2 not only come in black, but Microsoft has made a few noteworthy improvement under the hood.
These second-generation over-the-ear headsets now come with improved sound quality, 13 levels of ambient noise control, Bluetooth 5.0, support for the aptX codec, and 20 hours of battery life.
The Surface Headphones 2 will go on sale starting May 12 for $249.
Next up are the Surface Earbuds. Initially announced back in October of 2019, the Surface Earbuds were delayed to give Microsoft the opportunity to refine them further, sparking rumors of a possible redesign.
It seems the only changes may have been internal as there doesn’t appear to be any external differences, visually at least.
The Surface Earbuds feature Omnisonic sound and support for gesture control by swiping along its surface. Microsoft designed them to integrate with Microsoft 365 services to read your emails back to you in Outlook for example, or dictate in Word, PowerPoint, or Outlook.
The Earbuds are available for pre-order now for $199 and will start shipping on May 12.
