Earlier this year, Microsoft announced the upgrade to Surface Studio as well as their first Surface-branded Headphones. The company launched both the products in several markets immediately after the launch and China will be the latest country to be added to the list.
Microsoft has updated the listing of both Surface Studio and Surface Headphones stating that they will be available in China starting 3rd January. The company, however, didn’t release the pricing of either of the products. Microsoft Surface Studio is powered by 7th generation Intel Core i7 chipset which is paired with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 Graphics/GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 graphics and 16GB/32GB of RAM. The device also has a 5 MP camera along with a 3.5mm headset jack, Stereo 2.1 speakers with Dolby Audio Premium and dual microphones.
Moving to the Surface Headphones, the Wireless Headphones feature Cortana integration, courtesy of 4 beam-forming microphones. They also feature 4 active noise-cancelling microphones, 13 levels of noise reduction, 40 mm drivers, automatic pause and play and support phone calls. The headphones charge over USB-C, and still support 3.5mm connectivity, Microsoft’s own Bluetooth fast pair technology and 15 hours of battery life.
While Microsoft hasn’t announced the pricing yet, we do expect aggressive pricing from the company in the Chinese market especially when it comes to the Surface Headphones as there are a lot of Chinese companies with decent headphones in the market and it just increased the competition for Microsoft.
