Microsoft unveiled its Surface Earbuds, the company’s answer to the wireless earbuds market, a few months ago. The earbuds were initially planned for a release this holiday season, but according to a tweet from Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, the company has pushed its release date to 2020.
Panos tweeted that Microsoft is still working on getting the Surface Earbuds right, and as such, will be forced to delay the earbuds until the spring (March – June) of 2020.
Product-making is about the relentless pursuit to get all the details right, which takes time…sometimes more than we planned on. To ensure we deliver the best possible experience for you, our fans & customers, Surface Earbuds will now launch worldwide in Spring 2020 #Surface

We’re not sure what might have taken Microsoft so long to release the earbuds, but we suppose it’s better Microsoft prefers to take their time to get it right rather than rush it out.
Incase you missed it, the Microsoft Surface Earbuds are a pair of wireless earbuds designed and made by Microsoft. Given that it is a Microsoft product, the earbuds are produced to successfully integrate with Microsoft products such as PowerPoint, where users can control their presentations by sliding on the earbuds.
Microsoft claims the earbuds flaunts a battery life of up to 24 hours and will be priced at $249 (N90,262.50).
