A new AirPods competitor - Meet the new Surface Earbuds by Microsoft!

A new AirPods competitor - Meet the new Surface Earbuds by Microsoft!

This is definitely a must-have accessory. The new Surface earbuds are tuned for both music and vocal performance. Each earbud has two microphones built in it to help reduce noise when you are speaking into them.

Microsoft claims the Surface Earbuds have “all-day comfort” — they make contact with your ear in two places — and, with the included carrying case, offer up to 24 hours of battery life. As with many other wireless earbuds, they use tap and swipe gestures to control your music or other audio. They also feature standard headphone controls, like skipping songs by tapping on the sides. But they also have tight Office integration, surprisingly, like being able to advance slides in PowerPoint.



On Android, with a few simple taps, you can open Spotify, and it will start to play the right music for you in that moment. There’s no screen required, said Microsoft’s Robin Seiler.
The Surface Earbuds join the Surface Headphones as Microsoft’s flagship audio products. The company did not announce a sequel to the headphones today, however. They’ll be available later this year for $249 (GH₵ 1,338.69). You can follow the main highlights here.
