Microsoft to release Surface Buds to compete with Amazon and Apple
Microsoft is reportedly working on a new product that would expand its lineup of headphones to a second category. While audio companies like Sennheiser and RHA look to make true wireless headphones with the primary goal of merging sound quality with convenience, for Microsoft, it could be an attempt to make an entry into the mobile space after not having much success with smartphones.
The tech giant is reportedly developing "Surface Buds" in an effort to take on Apple's wildly successful AirPods, Thurrott reported, citing sources close to the situation.
Following the launch of its Surface-branded headphones previous year, Thurrott reports that Microsoft now wants a piece of the true wireless earbuds action.

Nathan MacKinnon Scores In OT To Tie Series
With the game tied, the game would head to overtime, something the Avs did not have to do last season against Nashville. Coach Bill Peters agreed the team failed to start on time - a development masked once again by Smith.
The earbuds, which are now in development, are code-named Morrison but could be called "Surface Buds" when they launch for consumers. It's unclear when this product will ship, assuming it hasn't already been canceled.
The Surface Buds will likely come with Microsoft's AI assistant, Cortana, integrated into them, meaning users would be able to control the device with their voice. With Cortana being what it is, it's hard to get excited about these rumored earbuds, but more competition is still welcome. We're also not sure about the timetable for a release. The most interesting tidbit is some unspecified feature that would "improve interactions between a phone and the earbuds to make reading content easier on the phone". According to Sams, a 2019 release date for the Surface Buds (not the official retail name yet) is "plausible", but we'll have to wait and see.
