UPDATE 8: Surface Headphones have been announced by Microsoft at its hardware event in New York City.

The over-ear headphones are wireless and boast noise-cancelling technology.

Microsoft’s virtual assistant Cortana is also supported with the new accessory.

Inside the headphones are 40mm drivers that should deliver quality audio.

The accessory has four noise-canceling microphones that should block out background noise.

Microsoft insisted the new headphones are coming soon.

However, the company did reveal both the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 can be pre-ordered from today.

UPDATE 7: Microsoft has announced the Surface Studio 2.

Although the externals of the device look very similar to the previous generation model, the panel of the hardware is 38 percent brighter and offers 22 percent more contrast.

The promotional video for the new product insists it is the “fastest Surface ever”.

Surface Studio 2 will include a 2TB SSD and come with NVIDIA Pascal graphics.

Microsoft is insisting the Surface Studio 2 offers “best-in-class ink latency”, 4096 levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity.
