Microsoft is a company known for their software like Windows and Office, but in recent times the company has also started to gain a reputation for pretty decent hardware too, such as with its Surface tablets and laptops. They also started to expand on their hardware offerings by launching the Microsoft Surface Headphones.
These are a pair of active noise-canceling headphones that sports a very understated design, which is good if you’d rather not attract attention to yourself. They also feature touch-based controls in which you can use to control the volume and music playback. Users will also be able to control the level of noise-cancellation, so you can choose how much of the outside world you want to tune out.
There is also built-in support for Microsoft’s own Cortana digital assistant which you can summon on the fly. One of the best features of the headphones is that it has support for both Bluetooth and wired mode, meaning that in the event the headphones run out of juice, you can continue to use them in wired mode.
The Microsoft Surface Headphones were initially launched for $350 but they are now enjoying a $100 discount on Amazon where you can pick up a pair for yourself for just $250.
