Sony LinkBuds S Overview

Body

The new Sony LinkBuds S sports a traditional closed-back design which is totally different from what we previously saw in its predecessor LinkBuds. The latter had a unique open-loop design which was comparatively easy on the eyes. Each earbud weighs 4.8 grams and is one of the lightest TWS in the present market with ANC and Hi-Res certification.

The phone case is a bit larger than that of the Apple AirPods Pro and is easy to carry around in your pocket. However, there is no pairing button on the case, and you’ll have to make it work with Sony’s Swift Pair approach which also provides you the service of quick pairing. Further, the earbuds are available in three color options – Black, White, and Beige (Desert Sand).
