Microsoft Surface Earbuds hands-on review

 

Microsoft's got a brand new bag with its own pair of fully wireless earbuds, dubbed the Surface Earbuds. Ostensibly AirPods competitors, the Earbuds put their own spin on wireless sound, including a new way to interact with Microsoft software,...

Comfortable fit ; Balanced sound ; Microsoft suite integration ; Translation

Microsoft's pricey new Surface Earbuds are custom built for the office

Microsoft’s Surface Headphones are a good first try

 

Microsoft made a solid first attempt at building high-quality noise-cancelling headphones. These are comfortable and fit on even the biggest heads. Just beware that Cortana integration seems to entail a trade-off in battery life.

Comfortable ; Adjustable noise-canceling ; Easy-to-use controls

No real need for Cortana integration ; Short battery life compared to Bose and Sony

Microsoft Surface Headphones review: all the style without the polish

 

Simple in look and sophisticated in function but suboptimal in practice

Ingenious control dials ; Stylish look and premium feel ; Shockingly good wireless performance ; Excellent noise canceling

Some comfort issues ; Uncompetitive battery life ; Lacking support for AptX, AAC, or LDAC for higher-quality sound ; Sound lacks refinement and treble energy

As to whether you should own a pair for yourself, that depends. I still feel drawn toward these headphones, I enjoy listening to my music with them, and I’m constantly impressed by the speed with which they connect to my devices and the rock-solid...

Microsoft Surface Headphones Review: An Excellent Debut

 

First impressions are everything, and the Microsoft Surface Headphones offer more than enough bells and whistles to capture your interest. They have the firepower and features they need to challenge Bose and Sony, but still require a few more upgrades...

Spacious soundstage ; Adjustable noise cancellation ; Innovative dial and touch controls ; Excellent connectivity ; Comfy and premium design ; Supports multiple Bluetooth devices

Battery life is lower than the competition's ; Cortana app is necessary for most features ; Bass can come on too strong

While they don't rise to the standard set by Bose and Sony, the Microsoft Surface Headphones are a pleasant surprise with solid sound and noise cancellation.

Microsoft's Surface Headphones Sound Like Disappointment

 

I'll say one thing about the new Microsoft Surface Headphones. They're pretty, especially if you like the color grey. I'll tell you a few other things. The Cortana features are frustrating. The noise-canceling tech is basically fine. The ear cups...

Microsoft Surface Headphones review

 

Wireless noise-cancelling headphones from...Microsoft

Excellent wireless connection ; Brilliant noise cancelling ; Deals well with mid-range

Limited colour options ; Battery life could be better

Surface Headphones demonstrate some impressive thinking, and sound a lot more colourful than they look

Microsoft Surface Headphones review

 

Bringing bass to the Surface

Brilliant sound quality ; Effective noise cancellation ; Intuitive controls

Design won’t appeal to all ; Sound may be too warm for some

Microsoft’s first crack at over-ear headphones is ultimately as impressive and stylish as all of Microsoft’s hardware. We were very impressed with the active noise cancellation and sound quality of these headphones, although the design may polarize...

Microsoft Surface Headphones review: All style, little substance

 

Microsoft's noise-cancelling headphones have a sharp look and a fun sound signature, but audiophiles won't be bowled over

Engaging, punchy sound ; Very comfortable ; Neat touch controls

Noise cancellation is merely all right ; Lacklustre mid-range reproduction ; Less portable than some rivals

If you’re paying £329 for a pair of headphones, however, then you expect uncompromising audio quality – and that’s not quite what you get with the Surface Headphones. For the ultimate in noise exclusion, the Nuraphones are a better bet, although their...

Surface Headphones review: Microsoft's first noise-canceling headphones are almost great

 

Microsoft's premium noise-canceling headphones stack up pretty well against leading models from Bose and Sony, but could cost a little less.

The Microsoft Surface Headphones are comfortable to wear, sound good, have touch controls and on-ear dials that allow you to adjust the level of noise canceling and volume. The always-on Cortana feature allows you to use voice commands without pressing...

Sound could be better for the price, and battery life doesn't measure up to that of competing models. Cortana isn't as good as Alexa and Google Assistant.

The Surface Headphones don't quite match Bose and Sony noise-canceling headphones, but they're a strong freshman effort with some compelling feature and design elements.
