Microsoft's Surface Earbuds are touch-friendly

Bluetooth Headsets
[MUSIC]. There was a time not that long ago, when walking around all day with little earbuds in both for music and for voices over your phone. For something that you didn't really think everybody was gonna do, Microsoft's new Surface ear buds that looks bigger as a giant light circle that goes in both ears right here and not even trying to either. They're just out and ready for you to use, now one of the things about this big surface here is you can do a lot of touching And gesture commands from it. If you're using especially an Android phone, they are going to work a lot better. You can apparently launch and do some shuffling around with Spotify just by tapping and swiping. And i saw some very interesting footage of people controlling PowerPoint presentations just by going like this. So if you're tired of standing up there and holding the little controller and switching to the next slide, maybe it'll look cooler if you're happy with the slide being on your ear. I'd have thought they'd have a lot of cool, modern ear bud procedures if they can do Voice to Text they can help retrain Relation software. They've got two microphones in each [UNKNOWN] jumped with noise canceling. So you can be heard even though the microphones are way back up here and as you're normally talking, you're talking this way that is a hallmark of a good phone earbuds. I just did a little bit of listening via Bluetooth with the surface behind me. That got pretty loud, not super fancy, but definitely fuller than Apple's air pods which are very Open ear style ear buds. They've got a little rubber thing on the inside, and you put them in, and you twist them. You have to get them to kind of twist to lock fit in your ear. But once you do, they feel pretty comfortable. I've got very narrow, sensitive ear canals, and I think these are okay. Come back to me in six hours, and I'll tell you if it's an all day wear. But so far, not offensive. Now, of course, besides the features, besides the audio quality and all the tech things it can do, you really gotta think about what you're looking for in terms of aesthetics. Cuz frankly what you wear in your ears is a pretty important part of how people see you. Apple's AirPods are smaller. People still make fun of people for wearing them. These are much bigger and bolder. It's a giant white satellite just in your ear. So you're gonna have to wait and see if that becomes acceptable street fashion. So these guys, they're very noticeable. They're very touch friendly. They can be out later in 2019 and they're gonna offer $249. [MUSIC]
