Engadget Review

Microsoft’s first wireless earbuds offer big sound in a tiny and comfortable package. They’re so easy to wear, you’ll forget you have them on. Just be aware of potential reception issues if you’re only wearing one at a time.

Pros
  • Excellent sound
  • Practical touch controls
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Pairing relies on the right earbud
  • Design might turn off some
  • No noise isolation
  • Not ideal for exercise
