Sorry, nothing in cart.
As far as we remember, Microsoft announced its entry into the truly wireless earbuds space during its Surface event last October. Although originally set to go on sale in December, Microsoft soon announced that they weren’t confident of the product offering the best possible experience, and the launch was delayed to Spring 2020. Honestly, Since then, we’ve been waiting for this product, and today, a new report from Winfuture has come out claiming that the earbuds will finally launch in Europe on May 6. The American company looks set to hit that timeline, with the Surface Earbuds set to go on sale on May 6.
As per the reports, the Surface Earbuds will launch at a price of €199, which is in between the price range of Galaxy Bud+ & Airpods. Interestingly, Microsoft has made them more affordable option than the AirPods Pro. The report cites European retailers as the source, suggesting that Europe will be among the first regions to see the new true wireless earphones go on sale.
The Surface Earbuds are expected to come with Bluetooth 4.2. Microsoft Surface Earbuds have a claimed battery life of 8 hours per charge, and a total of 24 hours when including the additional charges from the case. There is also integration for Microsoft apps and software built into the earphones, with Outlook and Word getting specific integrations for productivity features. (which can be seen in the above video as well)
There is also Spotify integration with Android smartphones, to quickly and easily start playing music through taps on the earbuds itself, without having to use your smartphone. Pairing and connectivity will also be easier thanks to Swift Pair, according to Microsoft.
Sadly, Microsoft hasn’t revealed anything about the availability of the Surface Earbuds. That means we will have to wait for the offcial and exact dates.
