Microsoft introduced the Surface Earbuds wireless headset
Yesterday, Microsoft made a presentation, which introduced a bunch of new devices. Among the new products were Surface Earbuds noise-canceling wireless headphones, which in their characteristics are very similar to their analogues. At the same time, the company managed to make them original, catchy and distinctive in appearance.
A headset is made in the form of inserts, the outer side of which offers a sufficiently large external plane. Through gestures or regular taps on the surface, you can start or stop playing music, switch between tracks and call the Cortana voice assistant. There is also integration with Office applications.
The manufacturer declares the autonomy of the headphones on a single charge up to 8 hours, and with a charging case, the duration of work can be brought up to 24 hours.
One of the features of the headset is transcription of speech. It allows you to translate speech from video or audio to text. The company promises that the function will work correctly and even in noisy environments.
They asked for a lot of Surface Earbuds – 250. This is a high price tag for such a headset, and Microsoft marketers will have to work hard to convey to users the full benefit of buying their product.
