Alongside so many Surface laptops and 2-in-1 PCs, Microsoft has also launched its first-ever truly-wireless earbuds under the Surface brand and they are called the Surface Earbuds. The new accessory joins in the company’s noise-canceling headphones and Microsoft is pitching it to be the perfect Office companion as it holds some interesting features to help you in carrying out your office tasks.
Each earbud has two microphones built-in and they come with dictation features as well. The earbuds include integration with Microsoft Office, allowing some features like real-time captions during the presentations and the ability to move through PowerPoint slides with a swipe of a touch area.
Microsoft says the new truly wireless earbuds have been made by keeping the Microsoft Office in mind; a voice-assistant focused accessory that will be with you throughout your office hours to give a new meaning to your profession. It can even translate your speech into one of more than 60 languages.
Microsoft claims it’s their ergonomic design that makes them fit comfortably in the ear. Like the earbuds, the carrying case also looks attractive but the larger circular look on the outside of the earbuds appears a bit weird.
The Microsoft Surface Earbuds are rated to offer up to 24 hours of battery life. As shown in the promo video, you can use tap and swipe gestures to control music playback.
It can open Spotify and lets you immerse yourself in music with fewer steps. The new Surface Earbuds are priced at $249 and they will be available for purchase later this year.
