"According to multiple sources who are familiar with the company's plans, Microsoft is now working on a pair of earbuds under the code name of Morrison", wrote Sams. We heard earlier this month that Amazon is planning wireless earbuds with Alexa, and it looks like Microsoft is also working on an AirPods competitor. According to a new report from Brad Sams, the software giant has been paying attention to Apple's success with the AirPods, and it has been working on its own Surface-branded wireless earbuds.

Following the release of Microsoft's Surface Headphones previous year, it seems that the company may just be getting started with premium audio accessories. The sleek, premium-priced $350 headset features an intuitive control scheme and some wickedly good noise cancellation chops, courtesy of four active mics that keep tabs on the sounds around you.

The Surface earbuds stem from Microsoft's desire to leverage that audio technology in more products, Sams reports. "Thurrott does say that the buds could contain a feature that "[improves] interactions between a phone and the earbuds" to make reading websites, e-books, and other digital content easier on smartphones, but that functionality may not make it into the final product. Would you like to see Microsoft release new wireless ear buds to compete with Amazon and Apple? Do you think Microsoft will bring these Surface Buds to the market?

True wireless earbuds are exploding in popularity, so it makes sense that if Microsoft would move into this space.
