Like many things coming to New Zealand, it can sometimes a bit longer for new products to reach our shores. Surface Headphones are no different but thankfully Microsoft have finally confirmed that they will be releasing in March.

It’s been an exciting start to the year for Surface. In January, Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio 2, and Surface Headphones launched across Asia for our customers in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Last week we showed strong momentum for the business when we announced Q2 results. Surface revenue increased 39%, with its biggest quarter ever, as our new devices clearly resonated with customers across commercial and consumer segments.

Beginning in March, Surface Headphones will launch in eight new markets, Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and Switzerland. Built to complete the Surface experience, Surface Headphones are designed to help get you in your flow, no matter where you are. Whether you’re working on a train, sitting in a coffee shop or in an open office environment, Surface Headphones let you control what sounds you tune in or out with the intuitive dials on each ear that control volume and 13 levels of noise cancellation. With up to 15 hours of battery life*, Surface Headphones can follow you throughout your day. Surface Headphones pair nicely with any Bluetooth enabled device, allowing you to move seamlessly across multiple devices.

Surface Headphones will set you back a cool $575 and will ship from 1 March 2019. For more information check out the Microsoft website.
