This may not be what you think? Did Microsoft copy the iPhone? Nope. Did Microsoft copy the iPad? Nope. How about Watch? Nope. Again. Buster Hein’s headline:
Microsoft’s new Surface Earbuds are unbelievably fugly
Just like Apple’s AirPods. There. I said it. They are.
When Apple unveiled the AirPods in 2016, the first thing I thought was how dorky they looked with that long stem and no wires.
Fast-forward three years, and you know what looks dorky? Wearing wired earbuds like a dang peasant!
The new Surface Earbuds reach an ungodly level of ugly. The touch-sensitive discs on the outside look like they’re about the size of a Pog (if you’re old enough to get that reference). When you shove them in your ears, it almost looks as though you’re wearing giant gauged earrings. Pretty sure we all agreed by the early 2000s that gauges look pretty stupid, but Microsoft is ready to bring back the trend.
Check out the photos. Fugly.
