  • - [Dan] Hey this is Dan with The Verge,

  • and this is Microsoft's new Surface Earbuds.

  • This is the companies first truly wireless earbuds

  • and they follow along the Surface Headphones

  • that were announced last year

  • in the companies new audio line-up of products.

  • As you can see they're pretty similar

  • to other wireless earbuds we've seen before.

  • You wear them in your ears,

  • you've got a little case that you put them in to charge,

  • and it's got a USB-C port to charge it back up,

  • and Microsoft says these will last

  • about eight hours on a charge,

  • and in the case you get a full 24 hours.

  • So it's pretty standard stuff that we've seen

  • from other companies before.

  • Now if you look at the design of these,

  • you can tell that they do look a little bit different.

  • They're quite a bit bigger than maybe

  • you're used to from say Samsung's Galaxy Buds,

  • or even Apple's AirPods.

  • But they're so big because there is this

  • touchpad on the outside that you can use

  • to control a bunch of functions,

  • you can skip tracks, you can raise volume,

  • you can launch applications

  • if you've got it connected to an Android phone,

  • play Spotify automatically, things like that.

  • And they like are typical sounding earbuds,

  • these do not seal out sound,

  • they are designed to allow ambient sound in,

  • and here we are in the demo area.

  • It's super loud, there's some bumping music

  • like a club at I don't know,

  • it's at noon right now.

  • So it's kind of hard to tell

  • how these things actually sound in here.

  • But if I were playing music,

  • I would be able to hear it through my ears

  • and also be able to hear the ambient sound.

  • There's no noise cancellation,

  • or anything else like that.

  • Now because this is Microsoft,

  • they don't just play music.

  • They actually do some other things,

  • then there's some microphones on here

  • and some technology Microsoft has developed

  • with PowerPoint and its AI processing

  • to allow you to speak into the headphones

  • while you're presenting say a PowerPoint slide show,

  • and it will live transcribe

  • what you're saying on the screen.

  • So I can say, "Hey this is Dan with The Verge,

  • "and these are Microsoft's new Surface Earbuds.

  • "This is the companies first truly wireless earbuds

  • "and they accompany the Surface Headphones

  • "that were announced last year

  • "as part of Microsoft's new audio product line-up."

  • Pretty wild.

  • The design on the inside is

  • a little bit different than other earbuds,

  • this ear tip does not actually go inside

  • your ear canal like I said before,

  • it's not designed to block out sounds.

  • It's supposed to let sounds in,

  • so it kind of just rests in there

  • and then there's a little hook

  • on the back side of it that when you rotate

  • the earbud into your ear it kind of locks in place.

  • Microsoft's including a few different sizes with this

  • so you can customize it to fit your ears

  • and find whichever size is most comfortable

  • and fits you best without falling out of your ear.

  • And Microsoft says these will be available

  • before the holidays this year,

  • so real soon.

  • They're gonna sell for about $250

  • which is a bit more expensive

  • than what we're used to seeing

  • from say like AirPods which start at 160,

  • or Samsung's Galaxy Buds which are about 130.

  • So Microsoft is really counting

  • on the added productivity features

  • that are coming with these to justify that price.

  • Obviously we're gonna have a review

  • coming for them when these are released

  • and we'll have lost more time

  • to test out their audio quality

  • and see what they're like in the real world.

  • But that's a real quick first look

  • at Microsoft's Surface Earbuds.

  • Hey thanks for watching.

  • There's a ton of other stuff

  • that Microsoft announced today,

  • there's new Surface Pro laptops,

  • there's new Surface laptop laptops,

  • and then the company actually announced

  • a new foldable thing that's not coming for another year

  • we've got it, all of it

  • on theverge.com and also youtube.com/theverge

  • so please go check it out.
