Surface Headphones hands-on: Cortana and Surface style come together (video)

The one announcement that came out of left field at Microsoft's October 2 event was definitely the latest accessory to join the lineup: Surface Headphones. And while the headphones are definitely on the pricey side at $350, there are definitely some interesting features packed in.

Operating over Bluetooth, the aesthetics of the wireless Surface Headphones unmistakably fit into the Surface lineup. But there's more to these than good looks and a decidedly bassy soundscape. Microsoft has packed in Cortana integration, so you can query the digital assistant at any time. There's also advanced noise cancellation with different levels that you can tweak as needed.

There's no release date yet for Surface Headphones, but it's definitely an interesting addition to the Surface line. For more on our initial thoughts, check out our hands-on video with the headphones above.
