Microsoft Launches New Wireless Earbuds – Surface Buds Impressions

spot_img

It has become quite the contagious trend amongst manufacturers to venture into the wireless earphones space once Apple proved to be a winning example. Just last month we had Amazon launching its own interpretation and now we have Microsoft venturing into this space with the Surface Buds. Boy are we excited!

The all new Surface Buds.

Microsoft isn’t new to the audio space. Coming hot off the heels of the immensely successful Surface noise cancelling headphones, the Surface Buds seem to show some great promise. But, yes there’s a but, they look HIDEOUS. Think of it this way. Slap on AirDots to tribal nose-plugs and you’d probably end up with a Surface Budsesque device. Again, looks are quite subjective but I personally think they looks quite weird in press renders.

Nose-plugs used by the Apatani tribe.

At the end of the day, it’s the performance that matters and early reviews seem to hint at quite a enjoyable sound signature. With “noice-cancelling like” features on board and intuitive touch controls, these seem like a steal for 250 USD. Windows 10 supports active dictation on Office programs through these buds and it seems like a nifty feature to have. How it performs in the real world however is a question we can only answer when we get our hands on them. That’s a cue to reach out to us Microsoft!

Weird design.

As and when we get more information on availability and pricing in international markets you can count on us to keep you updated.
