Microsoft’s surface earphones were supposed to be launched in the US “later this year,” but the company’s plans have changed. The tech giant based in Redmond has postponed the release of wireless headphones until spring 2020. This is a tweet from Panos Panay (@panos_panay), director of Microsoft products. Panay explains that Microsoft wants to “offer 2020 Updated: Best possible experience …” before launching the headsets. However, he did not discuss the details of the delay.
Product-making is about the relentless pursuit to get all the details right, which takes time…sometimes more than we planned on. To ensure we deliver 2020 Updated: Best possible experience for you, our fans & customers, Surface Earbuds will now launch worldwide in Spring 2020 #Surface

While the launch was planned for this year in the United States, the Canadian release date of Surface Buds has not been announced yet. In the United States, it is unclear how this will affect the launch of the product in Canada also.
