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 in the U.S. and £329.99 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.
