Microsoft Surface Headphones Features, Specifications
Microsoft’s first Surface-branded headphones have an excellent yet simplistic design. The ring on the Surface Headphone’s left earcup can be rotated to adjust noise cancellation strength, while the ring on the right earcup can be rotated to adjust volume. Music automatically pauses when the headphones are removed and then resumes when they’re worn again. The headphones also support Cortana and they also come with a futuristic USB Type-C port for charging. Unfortunately, Cortana support doesn’t seem to live in markets outside of the US as of now.
