Microsoft just entered the headset, introducing its Surface headphones earlier this year. They are a good first try, but our biggest problem with them was their price; At $ 350 retail, they are too expensive. Well, thanks to Prime Day, now you can buy them at a much better price.
Amazon is currently running a sale that marks the surfaces at $ 248, but with Prime, you'll pay only $ 190 – a 46% savings on retail. We believe that at this price, Surface hearing aids are a good buy, especially if they are considered to include noise cancellation technology.
Our reviewers gave these instruments a high score for their simple yet elegant design and intuitive use. Although the application may not be very useful, the headphones make the control of the application a bit redundant. The headphones are easy to pair and you can control both volume and noise cancellation levels by turning the dials of each of the headphones. Other controls are handled with taps on any of the headphones.
The noise cancellation was very good even in our noisy office environment and almost as good as the one you get without custom molded holes to block background noise. The sound quality is excellent and what you would expect from a pair of headphones at this price, and a generous two-year warranty gives you peace of mind if something goes wrong.
Are there better headphones available? Sure, we would recommend the Bose QC35 II or the Sony WH-1000xM3 as alternatives. But he will pay for it, and none of them has a substantial discount for Prime Day as are the Surfaces. But we would say that Surfaces are better for a wider variety of music genres than the QC35 II, so keep that in mind.
Do not you need noise cancellation? We recommend that you take a look at the Prime Day offer at the Beats Solo 3 marked at $ 140. And while the noise cancellation is not as good, this agreement with the wireless cancellation headphones Sony's WH-CH700N noise for only $ 90 is one of the best we've seen, along with 50% of these Sennheiser HD 599 headphones.
