Much like the Apple AirPods and Samsung Galaxy Buds, the Microsoft Surface Earbuds come with gesture support, such as swipe for playback and long tap for summoning the digital voice assistant, such as Cortana, Siri, and Google Assistant. The Surface Earbuds come with active suppression of ambient noise using an array of microphones. For Surface devices, the Surface Earbuds can be quickly paired with the help of "Swift Pair".

According to rumours, it could be just another variant of the Surface Headphones that were launched in 2019. In any case, we should get more information on the upcoming headphones in the coming days.
