As already described, the new Sony LinkBuds S are said to be the world’s smallest and lightest true wireless in-ear headphones, which are also equipped for the playback of hi-res audio content.

According to the manufacturer, the new Sony LinkBuds S are only 4.8 g light and have a design that is perfectly adapted to the human ear and yet guarantees a stable fit in the ear with its ergonomic design.

Newly developed driver and active noise canceling with powerful processor

The new Sony LinkBuds S rely on a newly developed 5 mm driver, which the manufacturer believes can boast a rich sound with powerful bass and clear voices, as well as detailed imaging in the upper frequency range, despite its small format.

In order to always guarantee music enjoyment free of external influences, the Sony LinkBuds S come up with an active, adaptive noise suppression, which relies on a Sony V1 processor. In this way, the noise suppression can be optimally adapted to the respective situation at any time.

However, this Sony V1 processor should also be used to minimize any distortions and thereby always optimize the sound.

Impeccable voice quality and voice control

Of course, you can also use the new Sony LinkBuds S as a hands-free device for phone calls and video calls, whereby the manufacturer not only promises excellent voice quality, but also very easy handling.

Sony Precise Voice Pickup Technology is said to achieve crystal-clear quality for phone calls, even outdoors on a windy day. In addition, the microphones of the headphones are designed in such a way that they are protected by a fabric that also largely eliminates wind noise.

The Speak-to-Chat feature, also based on Sony Precise Voice Pickup Technology, automatically pauses the music when a conversation starts.

Of course, voice control is also possible, be it Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, which Sony Corporation explicitly emphasizes, but also via Apple Siri on Apple iOS.
