You can now order the Surface Headphones from Microsoft for $349 with shipments starting next week

Microsoft has today opened orders for the upcoming Surface Headphones, which start shipping on November 19 in the United States and 10 days later on November 29 in the United Kingdom. The Surface Headphones cost $349.99 (opens in new tab) in the U.S. and £329.99 (opens in new tab) in the U.K., with the headset being available for pre-order in the U.K. starting today too.

Microsoft announced the Surface Headphones at a hardware event last month, alongside the new Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 6, and Surface Studio 2. Both the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 are already shipping, with the Surface Studio 2 expected to start shipping in the United States today.

First impressions of Microsoft's Surface Headphones have been positive. I recently had the chance to try them myself, and I was impressed with both the sound quality and hardware design, which feels very premium just like you'd expect from a Surface product. Cortana integration is also a nice addition, who will guide you through pairing and setting up the device in addition to aiding your usual virtual assistant tasks.

Windows Central will have a full review for the Surface Headphones online very soon, so stay tuned for that. Will you be ordering the Surface Headphones? Let us know in the comments.

  • Nice. Would like to see and listen to them before I buy them.
  • Hope Microsoft runs with these things. Would much rather have these super Surface Headphones than any boring Surface Phone. These things are going to fly off the shelves.
  • Me want Surface headphone :)
  • $349? Do they come pre-loaded with all the world's music as well? I'm sure my $40 headphones are just as loud... noise is noise
  • Haha, true. 300+ FOR headphones isn't for me and there are some more expensive ones out there!
  • Well, there are other more expensive headphones out there... just saying lol...
  • It's competing with other high end headphones that cost the same if not more. Some people don't hear the differences among lower quality and higher quality headphones, but some people care

  • I'm a firm believer of getting what you pay for. You can definitely tell the difference between some headphones for sure. Also, the way they're constructed makes a difference on how long they'd last. This is why I don't pay top dollar for off brands I've never heard off. Not saying these are.
  • These are not for you then. Neither are any other name brand headphones.
  • Who manufacturers these headphones?
  • No thanks. I'll wait for reviews from audiophiles first. Then if positive I go to store to try them...and no, I won't buy them and then return them!
  • Can see Microsoft inspiring OEMs (HP, Lenovo, Asus) to come out with their own headphones with Cortana built in. Smart move.
  • Ordered. Rush delivery.
  • I just ordered a pair for $300 on ebay via Best Buy and used the promo code PICKFAST to save 15%. Today only, ends at 8pm est.
