What's your colour?

Make it personal with a choice of four premium matt colours – including blue-marble colour Earth Blue – all with matching case.

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.

  1. As of May 9th 2022. According to research by Sony Corporation, measured using Strategy Analytics guidelines in the Truly Wireless style supporting noise cancelling and compatible with LDAC headphones market. LDAC is a certificated codec of "Hi-Res Audio Wireless“
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.

Sony's best ever call quality in truly wireless headphones

  1. As of May 19th 2022.

With Precise Voice Pickup Technology that optimally controls microphones on the outside and inside of the earbud, and advanced audio signal processing, conversations are ultra 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.

Minimising wind noise

Even on windy days, you’ll stay comfortable with wind noise minimised by a mesh structure around the microphone. 

Immersive sound, authentic music

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 provides less distractions too.

Integrated Processor V1

Improves noise cancelling for distraction-free listening with less power, enhances sound quality and reduces distortion.

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio without wires

allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.

Real-time restoration of all your compressed files 

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, it restores high range sound lost in compression.

  1. Activate the DSEE Extreme™ from the Sony | Headphones Connect app.

Listen safely with Sony | Headphones Connect app

Talk and hear only ambient sound

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 your hands are full. And once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.

  1. In rare cases, Speak-to-Chat may unintentionally start up in response to vibrations caused by devices such as electric toothbrushes, electric massagers and electric shavers, and activities such as brushing teeth, coughing or humming.
  2. Set the function to “ON” from the Sony | Headphones Connect app. To deactivate Speak-to-Chat and return to your music immediately, tap either the left or right touch panel. Otherwise, music will resume playing by default 15 seconds after your conversation ends in Speak-to-Chat mode. This timeframe can be customised using the Sony | Headphones Connect app.

Instant pause. Instant play.

Just take the earbuds out of your ears and the music stops – a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds. Pop the earbuds back in and the music starts again.
