Microsoft's Surface Go 2, Surface Headphones 2, and Surface Earbuds are available starting today. Microsoft recently announced several additions to its Surface family of devices, and a few of them are available now. The Surface Go 2 starts at $400, the Surface Earbuds cost $200 and the Surface Headphones 2 are available for $250.
The Surface Go 2 has a 10.5-inch display, up from the original Surface Go's screen size. While the screen is larger, the body of the Surface Go 2 is the same size as the original. Microsoft did this by reducing the size of the convertible PC's bezels. The Surface Go 2 is available with either an Intel Pentium Gold processor or a more powerful Intel Core m3 processor. Our initial benchmarks show that the Core m3 version does very well when compared to the Pentium Gold variant. The Pentium Gold, Core m3, and Core m3 with Wi-Fi or LTE are listed on Microsoft's website. Best Buy lists the Pentium Gold and Core m3 Wi-Fi variants.
The Surface Earbuds are a new member of the Surface family. They have omnisonic speakers for high quality audio and support haptic gestures for controlling music and other content. They also integrate with Office 365, including support for dictating documents.
The Surface Headphones 2 also support gestures and work with Office 365. They're similar to the original Surface Headphones but have Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX support. Also, they're more comfortable when worn around the neck because the earcups can now be rotated 180 degrees. The Surface Headphones 2 are available in Light Gray or Matte Black.
