On the bounce from Samsung’s latest Galaxy Buds release last month, Microsoft has emerged with their take on the revolutionary wireless earpiece design—presenting, the Microsoft Surface Earbuds.
Though some may say Microsoft is late to the game when compared to their competitors, these earbuds are the complete opposite of being left behind. The sleek product is a shining example of Microsoft’s prowess as a hardware powerhouse, and features an extremely comfortable design that leapfrogs them right into the heart of the race.
Unlike most other earbuds in the market, the Surface Earbuds have an open-ear design, which makes it super comfortable to be worn for long hours throughout the day. Though these are not noise cancelling, the sound you get is full, rich, and eloquent.

If you’re more into headphones, meet its sibling—the Surface Headphones 2. Also wireless, these headphones come with an adjustable noise cancelling feature, letting you decide which world you’d like to tune in to. These come packed with a lengthy 20-hour battery life.
The Surface Earbuds are currently retailing at S$300, which is a steal considering it’s quality and functionality. It sits comfortably within the upper echelons of affordable earbuds, and offers you masterful precision built by one of the world’s pioneering tech giants for a bargain.
The Surface Headphones 2, on the other hand, is priced at S$378. At the moment, it is unclear when these will be released in Singapore retail outlets, but you can pre-order them here and here, or purchase them from the US store here.
