Surface Headphones 2 largely keep the same design and feel of the original Surface Headphones, but with some notable tweaks. There's a new matte black color option, which joins the gray color found on the original. Microsoft has also added Bluetooth 5.0, aptX support, and the earcups can now be rotated 180 degrees for a more comfortable experience when they're resting around your neck.

Surface Earbuds and Surface Headphones 2 are both expected to start shipping and arrive in stores starting May 12. For now, you can preorder each from both Best Buy and the Microsoft Store.
