Small and light for all-day comfort
Sony LinkBuds S - Sony's smallest and lightest, noise cancelling, Hi-Res Truly wireless headphones. New Earth blue marble colour - made from recycled water bottles*
Sony Linkbuds S is approximately 4.8 grams in weight, and supports noise cancelling, High-Resolution Audio Wireless and Bluetooth® multipoint connection*. We've kept the size of the earbuds down by both developing a compact driver and integrating the Bluetooth® Audio SoC (System on Chip) and high quality noise cancelling processor in one single chip.
LinkBuds S combines a shape that perfectly matches the human ear with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. We’ve designed the earphones utilising extensive ear shape data collated since introducing the world’s first in-ear headphones in 1982, as well as evaluation of the sensitivity of various types of ears to ensure an ideal shape that is comfortable for many people.
Natural ambient sound or high quality noise cancelling
These Sony headphones give you the best of both worlds - natural ambient sound when you want to interact with your world, and high quality noise cancelling when you need to focus. LinkBuds S automatically switches between Ambient Sound Mode and noise cancelling depending on where you are and what you're doing.
Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts the ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it learns your behaviour and recognises locations that you frequently visit with your noise cancelling earbuds, such as your workplace or a favourite café, and tailors your sound to suit the situation.
Immersive sound and clear calls
A new 5mm driver unit, featuring a high-compliance diaphragm, helps keep LinkBuds S small. Despite its size, it reproduces powerful bass and crystal clear vocals, bringing out the best in all genres of music. Rich mid range sound enables clear reproduction of voices in music, movies, and podcasts. And with enhanced noise cancelling, LinkBuds S provide less distractions too.
These Bluetooth® headphones support High-Resolution Audio Wireless thanks to LDAC, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth® audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
With Precise Voice Pickup Technology that optimally controls microphones on the outside and inside of the earbud, and advanced audio signal processing, conversations are crystal clear, even in noisy environments. Our noise reduction algorithm was developed with AI machine learning using over 500 million voice samples to suppress ambient noise and extract your voice clearly.
Smart features for an effortless listening experience
You can set Speak-to-Chat to automatically pause the music as soon as you speak to someone, so you can hear just ambient sound and conduct a conversation – handy if you want to keep your headphones on or if your hands are full. And once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.
Just take the Sony earphones out of your ears and the music stops – a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds. Pop the Bluetooth® earbuds back in and the music starts again.
LinkBuds S features intuitive touch control settings – for example, tap on the left earphone to change from Noise Cancelling to Ambient Sound, long tap for Quick Attention, or double tap on the right to skip to the next track.
Up to 20hr battery life and IPX4 water resistance
You can enjoy a full working day of charge – 6 hours – from your Bluetooth® earphones and store another 14 hours in the case. That means a full 20 hours of listening every time you leave the house. In a hurry? Just 5 minutes of quick charging gives you up to 60 minutes of play time, and the Sony | Headphones Connect app will even notify you when your charging case drops below 30%.
With an IPX4 water resistance rating, splashes and sweat won’t stop these Sony earbuds – so you can keep on moving to the music.
