Microsoft Surface Headphones review

 

Wireless noise-cancelling headphones from...Microsoft

Excellent wireless connection ; Brilliant noise cancelling ; Deals well with mid-range

Limited colour options ; Battery life could be better

Surface Headphones demonstrate some impressive thinking, and sound a lot more colourful than they look

Microsoft Surface Headphones review

 

Bringing bass to the Surface

Brilliant sound quality ; Effective noise cancellation ; Intuitive controls

Design won’t appeal to all ; Sound may be too warm for some

Microsoft’s first crack at over-ear headphones is ultimately as impressive and stylish as all of Microsoft’s hardware. We were very impressed with the active noise cancellation and sound quality of these headphones, although the design may polarize...

Microsoft Surface Headphones review: All style, little substance

 

Microsoft's noise-cancelling headphones have a sharp look and a fun sound signature, but audiophiles won't be bowled over

Engaging, punchy sound ; Very comfortable ; Neat touch controls

Noise cancellation is merely all right ; Lacklustre mid-range reproduction ; Less portable than some rivals

If you’re paying £329 for a pair of headphones, however, then you expect uncompromising audio quality – and that’s not quite what you get with the Surface Headphones. For the ultimate in noise exclusion, the Nuraphones are a better bet, although their...

Microsoft Surface Headphones headphone review

Microsoft aims for the Surface Headphones to be the perfect pairing for their range of Surface computers and tablets. They've billed them as the 'smarter way to listen', featuring active noise cancelling for peace when travelling and on-ear touch...

Microsoft Surface Headphones review: superb, but not stylish

 

Sturdy build; impressive wireless range; lovely eloquent midrange

As grey as a very grey thing; sound skewed at either end of the frequency range

There’s enough to admire here. It doesn’t matter than Microsoft has endless resources - its first attempt at some premium noise-cancelling wireless headphones has some real highlights; you only need consider the sort of headphones Apple (for example)...

Microsoft’s Surface Headphones are a good first try

 

Microsoft made a solid first attempt at building high-quality noise-cancelling headphones. These are comfortable and fit on even the biggest heads. Just beware that Cortana integration seems to entail a trade-off in battery life.

Comfortable ; Adjustable noise-canceling ; Easy-to-use controls

No real need for Cortana integration ; Short battery life compared to Bose and Sony

Surface Headphones review: Microsoft's first noise-canceling headphones are almost great

 

Microsoft's premium noise-canceling headphones stack up pretty well against leading models from Bose and Sony, but could cost a little less.

The Microsoft Surface Headphones are comfortable to wear, sound good, have touch controls and on-ear dials that allow you to adjust the level of noise canceling and volume. The always-on Cortana feature allows you to use voice commands without pressing...

Sound could be better for the price, and battery life doesn't measure up to that of competing models. Cortana isn't as good as Alexa and Google Assistant.

The Surface Headphones don't quite match Bose and Sony noise-canceling headphones, but they're a strong freshman effort with some compelling feature and design elements.

Microsoft Surface Headphones review: all the style without the polish

 

Simple in look and sophisticated in function but suboptimal in practice

Ingenious control dials ; Stylish look and premium feel ; Shockingly good wireless performance ; Excellent noise canceling

Some comfort issues ; Uncompetitive battery life ; Lacking support for AptX, AAC, or LDAC for higher-quality sound ; Sound lacks refinement and treble energy

As to whether you should own a pair for yourself, that depends. I still feel drawn toward these headphones, I enjoy listening to my music with them, and I’m constantly impressed by the speed with which they connect to my devices and the rock-solid...
