Today, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop 4, but in fact, it seemed like the announcement focused even more on peripherals. Right out of the gate, the blog post highlights that the Redmond firm has over four decades of experience making accessories.

Microsoft Surface Headphones 2 and corresponding dongle

First up is the Surface Headphones 2+ for Business. The product itself isn't a big difference from the Surface Headphones 2, as opposed to the major improvement we saw from the Surface Pro 7 to the Surface Pro 7+. It has the same 13 levels of active noise cancelation, an eight-microphone system, and Microsoft is promising 18.5 hours of music listening time or 15 hours of voice time. But Surface Headphones 2+ is certified for Teams with an included dongle. It's priced at $299.99 and coming later this month.

That's not all though, because Microsoft is releasing two other headsets, the Modern USB Headset and the Modern Wireless Headset. They have a dedicated Teams button, and an LED light to indicate when you're muted. The USB and Wireless Headsets are coming in June for $49.99 and $99.99, respectively.

The Modern USB-C Speaker is for meetings, calls, and "casual music listening". It's got the same controls as the USB Headset, and it's certified for Teams. It's also got built-in cord storage, making it less of a messy option for your desk. It's coming in June for $99.99.

Finally, Microsoft is finally releasing a new webcam, something that has been rumored for some time. It's called the Modern Webcam, and it supports 1080p 30fps video output with a 78-degree field of view. Interestingly, there's no Windows Hello camera included, but it only costs $69.99, and it's coming in June.
