Microsoft unveiled its new Surface Headphones at the company’s fall hardware event last week. The new over-ear headphones were originally shipping “in time for the holidays,” but now Microsoft has updated its Surface Headphones listing to reveal that they’ll be available for preorder on November 15th, and ship on November 19th. Priced at $349, the headphones include a turn dial to adjust 13 levels of noise cancellation.

Microsoft has also built “Hey Cortana” functionality into the headphones, with support for hands-free voice commands. There’s even touch controls on the ear cups for pausing music or skipping tracks, and Microsoft is using a USB-C connection to charge the headphones for 15 hours of battery usage. You’ll be able to preorder Microsoft’s Surface Headphones on November 15th over at the company’s online store.
