Microsoft’s Surface Earbuds are now available for purchase. The darker earbuds join the Glacier White Surface Earbuds that were already available. Regardless of the color you choose, the Surface Earbuds cost $200.
The Graphite Grey Surface Earbuds are otherwise identical to the Surface Earbuds that were already available, so don’t expect any new features or improvements.
The Surface Earbuds look a bit different than other earbuds, as they have a surface large enough to support gestures for controlling media. They’re designed with comfort in mind, and earned high marks in our review thanks to their balanced audio and excellent battery life.
Microsoft’s super smart earbuds
Surface Earbuds have an excellent, albeit unique, design that is comfortable for all-day wear. However, incredibly good audio and exceptional battery life may not be enough to justify $200 compared to more affordable options.
