Sony Linkbuds S
ANC, 9 h, Wireless, True Wireless
Sony expands the headphone family of the same name with the LinkBuds S. They come with active noise cancelling as an inexpensive alternative to the high-end model WF-1000XM4.
The LinkBuds S are a new product from Sony. They belong to the family of the same name, which was introduced this year with the LinkBuds. Unlike them - which are open so you're aware of your surroundings - the LinkBuds S have active noise canceling. The "S" stands for silent.
The LinkBuds S are currently the world's smallest and lightest true-wireless headphones, according to Sony, with support for active noise canceling and High Resolution Audio Wireless. They are priced and feature-wise below the high-end WF-1000XM4 model. According to Sony, they are comparable to its predecessor, the WF-1000XM3 - simply smaller and lighter. This will no longer be produced in the future.
Here are the most important specs of Sony's new in-ear:
Voice assistants: Siri, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa
