Microsoft’s plate-like Surface Earbuds seem to be finally ready to hit store shelves. The earplugs were launched in October last year. According to a report by WinFuture, Microsoft’s first premium truly wireless earphones are expected to start selling on May 6 with a retail price of $ 199 (approximately INR 16,401), Mashable reported.
Originally expected late last year, the release to the earbuds was pushed multiple times to further polish the finished product. The new Surface Earbuds include a number of Microsoft Office integrations. Easy to pair with one click with other Microsoft products, these earbuds also feature touch, gesture and speech functionality with directional dual microphones and “omnisonic sound”. The Office integration includes features such as dictation that allow PowerPoint captions to be updated in real time and slides to be touched through.
The earbuds come with a charging case that can extend the battery life of the earbuds up to 24 hours before they need to be reconnected. In fact, there is also Spotify integration on Android, with the ability to skip volume and control with gestures. These Surface earplugs are shaped like giant white disks that resemble weird earplugs, dinner plates or even the earplugs of your favorite bike messenger. The larger size helps with touch operation.
