Product Information

Every world. Always On. 

Automate your audio experience with ultralight headphones that feature smart technology to connect your online and offline worlds like never before.  Seamlessly shift from ambient sound to advanced noise-canceling and enable automatic playback that learns from your behavior. LinkBuds S delivers the right sound for whatever world you're in.  

Never Off

With LinkBuds S, you're always connected. Wear them comfortably around the clock, staying in touch with people and places without having to pause your playlist.

Premium Noise Canceling

When you are ready to tune out the noise, LinkBuds S offers premium noise-canceling to help you focus on your favorite playlist or podcast.

All your worlds, connected and optimized

Link your worlds as LinkBuds S switch seamlessly between superlative noise canceling and natural ambient sound. Smart features and settings learn from your behavior and automatically adjust sound settings to provide the right sound for the moment.

Hear more of what's around you

These earbuds give you the best of both worlds - natural ambient sound when you want to interact with your world, so you can have a conversation or be aware of your surroundings.

Small and light for all-day comfort

Approximately 4.8 grams in weight with a compact design, LinkBuds S are smaller and lighter than other noise-canceling earbuds. Silicone earbud tips provide a comfortable fit that stays in place.

Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do

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 behavior and recognizes locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace or a favorite café, and adapts to the situation.

Smart features that seamlessly integrate music into your routine

With Auto Play, LinkBuds S can automatically play music as soon as you put the headphones on or finish a call. Settings can also trigger the music to match your behavior, such as a mood-changing walk or a post-meeting focus track.

Clear calls and immersive sound

Easily connect with the people you know and the content you love. Make crystal clear calls and listen to high-quality music – even in windy or noisy environments. AI-based noise reduction algorithm isolates your voice and keeps conversations crisp.

Built with premium sound technology

A newly developed 5mm driver unit, featuring a high-compliance diaphragm, helps keep the LinkBuds S small while driving your music with rich low-frequency bass sound. Sony’s Integrated Processor V1 improves noise cancellation, enhances sound quality, and reduces distortion.

Enjoy High-Resolution Audio without wires

LinkBuds S supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless by transmitting approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth® audio with LDAC audio coding technology. DSEE Extreme™ upscales compressed digital music files and restores high-range sound lost in compression.

Talk and hear only ambient sound

Voice pickup technology and Speak-to-Chat automatically pause the music as soon as you speak to someone, so you can 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.

Everything’s at your fingertips

LinkBuds S features intuitive touch control settings – for example, tap on the left earbud to change from Noise Canceling to Ambient Sound and long tap for Quick Attention, or double-tap on the right to skip to the next track. Explore default settings and customize your functions using the 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.

Control with your voice

Just say "OK Google" or "Alexa" to activate your preferred voice assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders, and more. You can even control your headphones' features like noise cancellation with your voice, listen to and interact with emails in Microsoft Outlook, and join Microsoft Teams meetings using Google Assistant or Siri.

Quick access to your favorite music and soundscapes

With Quick Access, you can configure these wireless earbuds to resume Spotify music playback or Endel personalized soundscapes with two or three taps – no need to touch your smartphone.

Find your headphones with Fast Pair

LinkBuds S supports Google’s Fast Pair feature. Easily find your missing headphones by sound or check their last known location in Google’s Find My Device app on your smartphone.

Made with the environment in mind

Your LinkBuds S is designed for both style and environmental consciousness. The earbuds use recycled plastic materials from automobile parts, and the packaging uses no plastic.

Water-resistant for everyday use

With an IPX4 water resistance rating, splashes and sweat won’t stop these Sony earbuds – so you can keep on moving to the music.

Listen all day, charge in minutes

Enjoy up to 6 hours of battery from your headphones and store another 14 hours in the case for up to 20 hours of listening. In a hurry? Just a 5-minute quick charge gives you up to 60 minutes of playtime.  The Sony | Headphones Connect app will notify you when your charging case drops below 30%.

What's in the box?

Open up the packaging of your LinkBuds S and you'll find 4 sizes of silicone earbud tips to suit different ear shapes and a USB-C charging cable.

So immersive. So real.

Immerse yourself in the sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. These headphones let you enjoy 360 Reality Audio.

A personal cinematic experience

Very happy with this purchase. Best fitting buds I have tried. Don't constantly fall out while walking. Don't irritate in any way. Quality sound. Excellent charge life. Quick to charge. So far no downside.

Really good. Have had only other pair of Samsung to compare with and this one goes miles ahead in performance in all areas. Great for sport. The only thing is that they could've been a bit better in noice cancelling, although pretty good even as they are.

Great sound, not so great noise reduction
The sound is magnificent, but the noise reduction is negligible, I can't tell if it's connected or not, unlike the headband model that I have in which it's perfectly noticeable. In the APP I change from noise reduction to ambient noise and there is no difference.
On some occasions, especially when the connection is not WIFI, the left earphone disconnects for a few moments several times.

There one of the best earbuds I had.
I've got these given to me for ester ( early present ) and I was sceptical about them at first, but from the unboxing experience to the actual use of them I was pleasantly surprised of how well this all worked. I will recommend these to anyone wanting near premium performance with mid range price.

Sound Size and comfort
I spent alot of time figuring out what model I wanted, I was going to get the wf-1000xm4, but the size really was the deal breaker for me.
The linkbuds s sound awesome right out of the box but lots of tuning options. The app is great.
And the case is so compact that you really can't appreciate it until you actually see them.
I wanted something I could also lay down with these are a great fit for that I have tried them while laying down and no issues.
The touch controls work great. The size difference from the wf-1000xm4 is definitely worth a few less features.
I don't feel like I sacrificed anything.

Great Sounding Compact Earbuds
Had the LinkBuds S for almost a month now and really pleased with them. They produce a good quality sound across the frequency range including low end bass. They are comfortable to wear and have a good charge duration. The charging case has a built in battery so can recharge the earbuds while out and about.

How can something so small sound this good?
I’ve always struggled with in ear headphones and found my ears get tender even after short periods of use but not with these Sony Link Buds S and I have found I’ve been wearing them for hours on end - I did have to experiment with the variety of interchangeable ear pieces to get the most comfortable fit. The sound quality from something so small and light is astounding and it is easy to tweak the equaliser to suit your musical preferences in the Sony Headphones app. Noise cancelling is unbelievable - I used these while mowing the lawn and the mower noise was barely audible, conversely, switching to ambient mode allowed external noises to be heard clearly making these a safe option to wear when out walking / running. The fit of the headphones feel very secure so no problem with them slipping out while exercising. Battery life is as advertised with 6 hours of playback plus an additional 14 hours with the case and a quick 5 minute charge is enough to get another hour out of them. Packaging was a little fiddly when first opening the box but once unwrapped ghe experience is great. Overall, I’m incredibly impressed with what these ear buds have to offer and I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better sounding set of headphones that are so light to wear - highly recommended!
