The LinkBuds S is the most recent addition to Sony‘s LinkBuds range of truly wireless earphones. They offer a more traditional form factor and a wide feature list, building on some of the ideas of the ambient sound-focused LinkBuds, which arrived earlier this year.
With a closed earbud design, the Sony LinkBuds S provides active noise cancellation (ANC). The earbuds include Sony’s LDAC high-fidelity Bluetooth audio codec and a transparency mode and app support.
Let’s look at the Sony LinkBuds S price, specifications, and more.

The Sony LinkBuds S are designed for the style and environmental conscious, with a more traditional form factor and in-ear fit. The earphones are made of recycled plastic from auto components, and the packaging is made of paper. Each earbud weighs only 4.8gms and features a newly upgraded 5mm driver unit with a high-compliance diaphragm, which keeps the LinkBuds S tiny while providing powerful bass.
The LinkBuds S includes Sony’s Integrated Processor V1, which reduces noise and improves performance. The headphones come with active noise cancellation, ambient sound/transparency mode, and support for Sony’s LDAC Bluetooth codec.
These earbuds also have new features, such as the ability to start playing music as soon as you plug them in. Spotify integration is included, as well as the standard set of Sony sound controls. Other features on the buds include Dolby Atmos support, 360 Spatial Sound, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa support, as well as a battery that lasts six hours without ANC and 20 hours with the case.
