Thanks to an exorbitantly high price tag, Microsoft's first pair of headphones failed to make much of a splash when they hit the market in 2018. The company made up for its mistakes with a cheaper second-gen model last year, but these days, you can find some great deals on the original set. If you've been waiting patiently for an affordable over-ear headset, your time has come. Microsoft's ANC-equipped headphones are down to just $80 on Woot.
Microsoft's first-generation Surface Headphones launched at an ambitious $350. Partially due to that price, they didn't really catch on (Microsoft seemingly acknowledged this blunder by introducing the second generation at an MSRP $100 lower). They're still good headphones, though — and today, you can nab a pair for just $82 from Woot.
Whether you're working from home or spend a lot of time commuting, active noise-cancelling headphones help isolate yourself from unwanted noise. Although Bose and Sony get most of the attention, some other contenders are very relevant. Microsoft's first-generation Surface headphones are a great alternative, despite having been replaced with a more modern version. They traditionally sell for $250, but you can get them for just $111 on Woot today.
Microsoft's first shot at over-hear headphones became the aptly-named Surface Headphones, and they received mostly-positivereviews. They have since been replaced with a sequel, but now you can get the original model for just $134.99 — a savings of $115 from the typical price (back when it was still readily in stock).
