How Good Are Microsoft Surface Headphones Here Is a Review


The anticipations of the previous days had always described, with little details, the new hybrid tablets, the new laptops and the new desktop computer designed for the creatives. No one, however, expected that Microsoft could show up at the event last October 2, 2018 with a pair of headphones with noise canceling technology . Instead, when everything seemed to take place according to the script, the Surface Headphones , the first headphones ever made by Redmond's house, appeared on stage.

And, mind you, this is not an impromptu company: according to what was said during the event dedicated (mainly) to the new Surface PCs , Microsoft engineers have worked on the development of these headphones for three years , with the The objective is to compete with the various Bose, Sony and Sennheiser in an increasingly competitive and increasingly attractive market (both for users, but above all for producers). In short, a well-calculated risk and built entirely in-house , taking advantage of laboratories, designers and production facilities all within the company created by Bill Gates.

At first glance, the work of the technicians of the Redmond house was more than excellent: the Surface Headphones are headphones over ear with a classic look , but not for this dated or "boring". Completely wireless , they connect via Bluetooth and are compatible with Windows 10 systems (you can connect them instantly with any Windows PC thanks to Swift Pair technology ), macOS, Android and iOS . Equipped with internal battery, offer a range of 15 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth, noise cancellation and active Cortana (yes, natively support Cortana without the need for an Internet connection); if only the audio reproduction and the cancellation of the noise remain active, the autonomy increases to 50 hours. Among other features, we also report the so-called head on : just wear them or remove them to activate or stop the audio playback.

For an optimal user experience, Microsoft engineers have implemented a double control system : on the one hand volume and noise cancellation level can be controlled thanks to the rings mounted on the outside of the audio pavilions; on the other side it will be possible to check the functionalities (audio playback, answer calls, control audio reproduction) thanks to a touch surface on the outside of the pavilions.

Surface Headphones features summary
Pavilions weight and dimensions : 296 grams, 40 mm pavilions
Microphones : 8 microphones (4 per pavilion) including 4 beanforming
Autonomy and recharge . 15 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth, noise canceling and active Cortana; 50 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth off and active noise cancellation. Equipped with fast charging, it offers up to 1 hour of playback with a charge of 5 minutes
Audio and equalizer . Thanks to the smartphone app that accompanies the headphones, the user can choose between 13 different preset audio modes, so as to play their own music with the bass levels that you prefer
Connectivity . Bluetooth 4.2, USB type-C
Controls . Double ring on the outside of the pavilions to control volume and noise cancellation level; touch surface for checking the functionality of the headphones
Voice assistant . Naturally compatible with Cortana, even without a connection to the Net. To activate the assistant, it will suffice to say "Hey Cortana"
Microsoft headphones are not immediately available, but can only be purchased in a few weeks. Even if the Microsoft Headphones release date has not been made known, it is easy to assume that they are put on sale just before the Christmas holidays, as a Christmas present for the home audiophiles. It must be said, however, that Microsoft headphones should not reach our latitudes. Or at least, they should not do it immediately: the initial launch, in fact, is only provided for the United States. The retail price is 350 dollars.
