Easy Listening: We’ve picked the Comfort Headset winners

When we introduced our new Microsoft Comfort Headset with “ear-gonomic” design, we ended with a competition to win a Comfort Headset. It’s time to reveal the three lucky winners!

Choosing the winners for this desirable sound innovation was not an easy task. It took lots of careful deliberation.

To win one of the three Comfort Headsets, your task was simple: Tell us what comfort means to you. That task should’ve been easy as the Comfort Headset offers the best audio experience with maximum comfort.

Before we reveal the winners, here are some entries that came close to winning.

“Comfort is being able to walk for hours while listening to podcasts on my phone. Comfort is coding at work for a few hours and forgetting that I even have a headset on. Comfort is throwing a set in my jacket pocket, and not having to untangle for 5 minutes. Comfort is being in the greenhouse with the loud fans running, while I listen to music and work happily.”


“To me, especially when it comes to headphones and ear buds, comfort means endurance. The greater the comfort, the easier it is to wear for a long period of time. Anything that’s not comfortable is also distracting, which takes away from being able to focus on the conversation, the music, or whatever task is being done.”

“Comfort is simply plugging in & streaming good tunes while wifey watches duff tv like coronation street & east enders.”

And the winners are:
