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.

Won't stay in my ears.
Had them a month now and although the sound quality is really good they very easily work their way out of my ears, often falling completely out. Have tried the different size silicones that come with them but it makes no difference. Also, when pushing them back in it thinks I'm doing a "tap once" and pauses the music. Very frustrating.

Light Comfortable and sound great
Bought these as I wanted a pair of ear buds that could be conected to my work laptop and phone at the same time do the job perfectly, the only niggle is that when doing a call there's no playback of my own voice so I can't tell how loud I'm being.

Arrived Faulty, wasn't acknowledged as faulty.
I recently purchased the LinkBuds S for everyday use. For the first couple of days it was okay, but I quickly noticed several issues (this is within 8 days of purchase).
1. Occasionally the left earbud would cut off for a few seconds. This issue would happen a few times a day, and got progressively more severe as I used them.
2. The ANC got progressively more static-y, to the point where music was drowned out by the noise. It started at a normal ANC level, and progressed to unacceptable levels.
3. (and my main problem) The headphones would randomly create an extremely high pitched ring in either bud. This progressed to whenever ANC was on (this would reset when the buds were placed in the case, but randomly start again). It was a genuinely painful noise. I'm someone who is more susceptible to hearing loss than others, so this was a genuine concern while using them.

I contacted customer support and was asked to send off my product for repairs (the earbuds I had owned for 8 days total). There was no acknowledgement to the fact that the device was faulty. Considering that repairs could have taken up to 2 weeks, (and put me dangerously close to my return deadline) I opted to just return them.

The headphones themselves (without the defects) are okay, but I have found better elsewhere. The app is useful, has simple but helpful controls. The touch controls are fairly limited, especially since the left bud only controls ANC. The audio quality is decent. The earbud fit is very specific, so if the buds don't fit you, tough luck. They slipped out rather easily for me, after trying all the available tips. The case is okay, the texture is quite nice, but the hinge feels a bit flimsy. They charge fast however.

Overall, if you don't mind risking a defective product that you might have to send away for repairs, it's an okay product in that regard. That being said, there are definitely better products on the market, so it might be worth looking around. Personally I wouldn't recommend this product due to my overall experience.

can't modify controls flexibly enough
I am not happy with these earbuds. They say you can control volume, start/stop, and noise-cancelling mode from the buds - and that is true, but only two of those functions at a time. There is no option to have all three functions active at once, because of the weird way Sony "groups" the ear-bud controls together - I don't need commands they force you to add in with the noise cancelling control, like start spotify or some other app I never use, but there is no way to e.g. replace the function of those commands with volume up and down. So half the commands are taken up by functions I don't need, but I can't replace them with the functions I DO need. You can only swap in and out 'groups' of functions - and volume up/down, noise cancelling on/off, and start/stop controls are in 3 different 'groups' - so you have to choose between two of those functions (plus all the extra ones in each group, even if you don't want those extra functions). If Sony fixed this I would like the buds a lot. As it is I can't operate them without physically getting my phone out, which is useless. A wasted purchase.
It's also really annoying that if you select start/stop to be available on one earbud, you can't disable the track forward/backward function that sits in the same group. I don't know how many times I ended up forwarding multiple tracks when I put the buds into or out of my ear - which when you listen to podcasts is incredibly annoying because of how hard it then is to find your place again...

Best in-ear earbuds I have ever used!
Primarily, my difficulties (over many years, 20 yrs or so) have been due to my narrow ear canals. These are the first, in about 2 decades, that I have been more than pleased with.

Fantastic headphones
Sound quality is outstanding and they're the first in ear headphones that can't be heard by others.

Value price, good quality, great sound
LinkBuds S is light enough, good noise cancelling and ambient sound, hopefully can have a AI App which will help and no need to keep adjusting the equaliser for better match play performance.

Excellent in ears
Bought them as a replacement of my wf-sp800 and I am glad, I did. Firstly, I noticed that they are much lighter and imo more comfortable. The ANC is excellent, although it doesn't filter out every backround noice. A bit of EQ adjustment through the app and BAAM the already very good sound quality was adjusted to my liking. Overall very happy and I wouldn't leave home without them.
