If new reports are to be believed, Microsoft is backing adult to recover a possess wireless in-ears in a Surface Buds, fasten a likes of a Apple AirPods (2019), a Powerbeats Pro and Samsung Galaxy Buds in a loyal wireless earbud market.
Not most is famous about them other than they’ve been codenamed Morrison (apparently after The Doors’ Jim Morrison).
If these in-ears do surface, design them to plea a likes of Apple as a Seattle-based association looks to enhance a operation of audio products. Here’s all we know so distant about a Surface Buds.

It’s been reported one underline for inclusion will be a approach to “improve interactions between a phone and a earbuds to make reading calm easier on a phone”.
Otherwise a expectancy is that a Surface Buds will lift identical facilities to final year’s Surface Headphones. So hands-free Cortana integration, noise-cancellation and hold controls could be included. The Surface Headphones upheld adult aptX Bluetooth for Bluetooth 4.2 and a battery life wasn’t a best, so we’d wish a Surface Buds offer improvements in those areas.
We’d also design them to seem in a grey colour tone, adhering to a colour of choice for Microsoft’s audio products so far.

If we follow a same arena afterwards a apparent choices would be Apple’s AirPods (2019) and Sony’s WF-1000X that are accessible in a £140 to £160 range.
We’d assume if they ever turn accessible that this is a cost indicate they’d target.
