And now, they just got a whole lot cheaper, as they return to just $128 at Amazon after a $72 discount! That is insane value for money, which makes this one of the best Amazon Prime Early Access headphone deals so far.
They feature new 5mm drivers, active noise-cancellation (ANC), stronger microphones, Sony 360 Reality Audio, Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) Extreme, and LDAC.
And as you can tell by the high rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, we love them too! They have a balanced, well-defined sound, great call quality and solid active noise-cancelling, while also being super comfortable to wear.
Design-wise, the LinkBuds S sport are compact and lightweight with a small oval body and in-ear fitting. Whether you're working out or get caught in the rain, IPX4 rating protects the buds from sweat and water splashes. On ear-touch controls respond to taps and long hold gestures whereas motion detection auto-pauses sound when you remove the earbuds from your ears.
Like all Sony wearables, the LinkBuds S include Headphones Connect app support. This free companion app lets you customize your sound using an equalizer, toggle ANC and set your favorite virtual assistant.
If you're in the market for true wireless audio wearables, Sony LinkBuds S are a solid choice.
