The new Surface Headphones are an expensive bit of kit, but a fresh discount might make them a little easier to justify. Amazon is currently offering up the Cortana-toting Surface Headphones for $303, which is a drop of $47 from their usual $350 price.
The Surface Headphones made their debut as the latest accessory in Microsoft's lineup at the company's October hardware event, coming alongside the Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Studio 2. The headphones sport a bevy of advanced features, including adjustable levels of active noise cancellation, gesture touch controls, and high-end audio. They also pack Cortana integration, letting you interact with the digital assistant at any time while you're on the go.
In his review, Windows Central Executive Editor Daniel Rubino came away pretty impressed with the Surface Headphones, stating:
Microsoft brought serious innovation to the table with Surface Headphones. It still has room to improve, but the company has established that it can offer some genuine competition to Bose and Sony. Surface Headphones 2 should be very exciting. For now, this first release is above average ... but not the best.
You can snag the Surface Headphones from Amazon now for $303. If that's still a little too much to swallow, Windows Central is also currently giving away three pairs, and you can enter to win a pair here.
