Microsoft is one of the many companies that widely rumored to prepare a frontal attack on Apple's crazy successful AirPods, but before that can happen, Redmond-based tech giant revealed a pair of premium ear-headphones with built-in – in Cortana integration last fall.
While the popular Surface Pro line of 2-in-1 Windows tablets is often discounted, we have not seen many great deals offered on the appropriately named Surface Headphones so far. Typically priced at $ 349.99, these noise-canceling boys are currently available for just $ 249.99 from Microsoft's official US e-store in a simple but stylish light gray color.
Best Buy charges the same 250 bucks … for certified refurbished units, while brand new headphones are sold at $ 263.99 a pair at the time of this writing. It is unclear whether this means that the product has not been incredibly successful at its list price or perhaps that a successor of some sort will come soon. It can simply be that Microsoft finally understood to compete against Beats Studio3, Bose QuietComfort 35 II or Sony WH-1
000XM3 at $ 350 pricing, largely mission impossible.
It looks like you will have until June 30, pulling the trigger with a cool $ 100 discount, so you can definitely take your time and consider your Bluetooth capabilities over the ear. On the headphone, Surface Headphones seem to be a smart $ 249.99 purchase with adjustable active noise canceling technology, ear control, hands-free Cortana interaction for music, calls, web searches, reminders and so on, as well as up to 15 hours of battery life on a single charge ( which by the way takes less than 2 hours).
