According to a new report, Microsoft is working on another pair of headphones, this time created to take on Apple's AirPods with wireless earbuds powered by Cortana. Sams writes the earbuds are codenamed "Morrison" - likely after Jim Morrison of the Doors - citing "multiple sources who are familiar with the company's plans".

Apparently, Microsoft wants to cover the two "major categories" of headphones: over-ear and in-ear. The same applies to Amazon, which is also reportedly working on its own AirPods competitor as a way to get Alexa into more people's pockets. These features would include active noise cancellation, Cortana integration, answering questions and controlling music, and great battery life, though nothing has been concretely mentioned.
While the new product could very well launch as Surface Buds, a final name hasn't yet been chosen, and Microsoft could change it at any moment should it have a different idea.
No release date has been stated yet as Microsoft has yet to officially verify these claims, but it is being stated that a 2019 release is plausible, while not guaranteed.
