Comfort Headset

Alongside today's reveal of the Lumia 435 and 532 smartphones, Microsoft has also quietly announced a new set of earphones recommended for those devices, the Comfort Headset.

The earphones come in orange, black and white colors. Microsoft says:

"Unlike many other headsets, the earpieces match the shape of the human ear. They are designed to sit securely in the ear while maintaining maximum comfort – it's a great fit for most people's ears."

"The earpieces direct sound deeper in the ear for minimum sound loss. Ergonomic design and a perfectly placed earpiece speaker create a super-comfortable, high-quality listening experience."

In addition, the Comfort Headset adds a unique button designed to take smartphone calls. From the description:

"Use the button to take calls with the headset on. And once you've answered, the built-in microphone lets you keep your hands free while you chat. It's a small feature that makes a big difference."

Microsoft has not announced if the Comfort Headset will be released as a stand-alone product nor pricing or availability.
