To everyone’s surprise, Microsoft today at the Surface event launched their first-ever Surface-branded headphone. Now that here is 2018 almost all the major player has some smart solutions when it comes to portable speakers, Microsoft is not too late to join the party with the latest headphone which has Cortana built into it. But why headphones instead of something like Pixel Buds, that could be an interesting question.

Talking about its features, you find eight microphones in total, 2 beam-forming microphones on each ear cup. You also have noise control. Besides all these, what makes the Surface-branded headphone stand out is the on-ear dials which help you adjust volume and noise cancellation. And Cortana inside the speaker is always there to assist you for whatever you need.

Needless to say, the headphones will work best with a Surface computer but you can always pair with any Bluetooth enabled device. Surface Headphones will be available for purchase in the US and in the UK in time for the holidays.
