Microsoft has today announced that the Graphite Grey variant of its new Surface Earbuds will be launching September 10, several months after the Surface Earbuds launched in Glacier White. The new Graphite Grey option will cost the same as the Glacier White model at $199.
There's nothing else really new with this new model of Surface Earbuds, as it's just the color that's been updated. Many have been waiting for a darker color choice for Surface Earbuds, as they were announced alongside the white pair back in October last year. For some unknown reason, the Graphite Grey model was delayed until now.

Microsoft's super smart earbuds
Surface Earbuds have an excellent, albeit unique, design that is comfortable for all-day wear. However, incredibly good audio and exceptional battery life may not be enough to justify $200 compared to more affordable options.
