The Graphite Grey Surface Earbuds are otherwise identical to the Surface Earbuds that were already available, so don't expect any new features or improvements.

The Surface Earbuds look a bit different than other earbuds, as they have a surface large enough to support gestures for controlling media. They're designed with comfort in mind, and earned high marks in our review thanks to their balanced audio and excellent battery life.
