Expert review

The space-age-looking Microsoft Surface Earbuds – the brand’s first take on truly wireless headphones – may look like a Star Trek prop, but are perhaps the ultimate conclusion in headphone design: headphones so small their large circular discs are verging on mere stud earrings. They promise long battery life and seamless integration with its Microsoft 365 software. So are these just one Microsoft product too far, or a serious pair of truly wireless headphones? Our experts put them to the test.
