Small and light for all-day comfort

Approximately 4.8 grams in weight, Linkbuds S is the world‘s smallest and lightest, noise canceling, Hi-Res truly wireless headphones. We've kept the size 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. It’s 40% smaller than the WF-1000XM4.

Comfortable and secure

LinkBuds S combines a shape that perfectly matches the human ear with an ergonomic design for a more stable fit. We’ve designed LinkBuds S 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.

Transparent ambient sound or high quality noise cancelling

These earbuds give you the best of both worlds - Sony's best transparent ambient sound in truly wireless headphones when you want to interact with your world, 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.

Adjusts ambient sound to whatever you do for all-day wearing

Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. Over time, it learns your behaviour and recognises locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace or a favourite café, and tailors sound to suit the situation.
