Still on the Microsoft event which was held at New York city on Wednesday, we saw them talk about a double screen-phone which you can check that out here, and now we’re gonna be talking about their brand new $249 Surface Earbuds.
Microsoft $249 Earbuds
So according to Microsoft, the Earbuds would last for 24 hours when fully charged and they also promised it is everything you would expect from Earbuds like that.
But all those things mentioned above are just what your typical Earbuds would do, now what makes the Surface Earbuds different from that normal ones is this.
The Surface Earbuds have been integrated with the Office 365 suite, the buds also lets you read texts into apps like Microsoft word and Microsoft Teams (that crazy). That not all, they even claim you could change slides on PowerPoint simply by swiping on the Earbuds. (Mind blown)
The Airpods comes at $160 while the Surface Earbuds starts at a price of $249. But it hasn’t been tested so we don’t know right now if that price is really worth it, especially since they said it is powered by Bose vaunted noise-cancelling technology.
So first they announced the dual-screen phone which is gonna rival the Galaxy Fold, now they’re talking about the Surface Earbuds which would rival the Airpods. I think Microsoft is up to something here.
