At its own conference, Microsoft announced its first Surface Earbuds wireless headphones, which are positioned to compete with Apple AirPods. The novelty comes with a charging case, has an extraordinary design and a set of useful functions.
Headphones differ from the majority on the market with an impressive “washer”, which acts as a cup for each earphone and at the same time is a touch control panel. The company notes that it tried to make the device “as simple as possible”.
The new product uses a bi-directional microphone. The kit has a charging case, thanks to which the autonomy of the headphones is 24 hours. Additionally, the manufacturer equipped the Surface Earbuds with an active noise reduction system.
In addition to the ability to switch music, control volume, answer calls and start streaming services, Surface Earbuds has an interesting feature – you can use them to switch slides in PowerPoint presentations. In addition, the headphones have the function of translating from one language to another in real time, as well as the ability to send voice notes to office applications.
Microsoft plans to launch Surface Earbuds sales before the Christmas holidays. The cost of new items is 250.
