At Microsoft’s recent launch event, featuring their new Surface lineup, the American multinational technology company surprisingly unveiled their new over-the-ear wireless headphones, getting a head start on Apple. Just in time for the holidays, these headphones can provide you with silky sound to match its sleek design.
The headphones have active and passive noise cancellation, Bluetooth and wired connections, and the voice-controlled Cortana virtual assistant. They feature slick swipe gestures on the ear cup to play, pause, or skip tracks. The headphones also have built-in optical sensors that automatically pause your jams when you take them off and play automatically when you slip them back on. Adjust then volume via the right ear cup and control the level of noise-cancellation with the left ear cup. With a 15-hour battery life and 40mm free-edge speaker drivers for crisp, optimized sound, these headphones are sublime.
