Great quality!
Sony has done it again and made another stand up product. The design is great because as a male, I don’t have hair to cover my ear and buds are lightweight and not easily noticeable when you are wearing them out or even at work. What I like about these earbuds the most is the great sound quality you get from them; I don’t notice static or anything like that. You get a great sound quality without blocking out the whole world around you, which is helpful for me when I am wearing them at work, or even during a workout to stay alert and still be able to hear my surroundings. They are easy to charge in the case they come in. I do find myself charging them after a day of work, so they don’t last all day long on one charge, but you do get a good amount of time before they require charging. I like how they are comfortable, but it did take a bit to adjust them to my ear when I first started using them. But now after a month of use they are easy to pop in comfortable, easy to wipe down and clean, easy to charge, easy to use, and you get a great quality sound and great volume. I am a fan of these earbuds.

A bit uncomfortable to wear
These are a bit uncomfortable to wear, even with the extra sizing pieces it comes with. They are just too big to fit comfortably in the ear. The sound is okay with decent bass but they are limited in volume. I also don't like that when you are wearing them other people around you can clearly hear whatever you are listening to.

Definitely surprised me with quality.
So many things I can say about these little buds. I'll start off with packaging, does come in a tiny form factor that is extremely easy to carry around and does not bulge in pocket being uncomfortable to your leg or in a bag barely taking up any space. Case holds charge for a couple days from my use of these and even can have buds last about 20 hours from how I use them almost nonstop. I'd say battery is perfect fo these. Comfortable as heck is what I would say, I always forget I even have one in my left ear if I use them separately and there is no cutting or redness in my ear like other earbuds do. There are no silicone tips so my ears also don't get hurt internally but that also leads to the main issue of the buds, no bass what so ever. These things have so many customizations in app and out that they are a blast to use with the side taps for functions to 3D sound being almost theater quality but even with some of the most crisp sounds and most detailed 3D audio there is still no bass from these designs. That is my only drawback from these is no bass. Yes I can hear my music and everything around me like I don't even have them in but for bassheads this is not the way to go. If you need earbuds that will let you hear your surroundings and even pause music when you speak and still have great quality sound besides bass then these are for you. I use them at work so I can hear everything around me and I never have to take them out. Also case can take a good drop so not too bad.

Fits My Needs
Sony LinkBuds have a unique and innovative open ring, donut-shaped design that allows you to hear the outside world in addition to your music. Included in the box, are a handful of detachable silicone ear fins of different sizes. After some experimentation, I found the fins that fit my ears best. The lightweight buds feel soft but are still quite durable. Even after several straight hours of wearing, the compact and discreet buds felt very comfortable in my ears. Despite the buds small size, they deliver strong audio quality with a well-balanced, crisp and clear sound. However, the bass could be a bit deeper. The battery life of 5.5 hours on a single charge is good but not great. The voice call quality is suberb with excellent clarity. I love the ear-detection sensors that automatically pause my music when I remove a bud from my ear, and then resumes the music when I put the bud back in my ear. I also appreciate the buds' Wide Area Tap feature which allows me to tap my cheek to control playback. Although, these water-resistant buds don't offer noise cancellation and do allow environmental noise in, I don't mind so much. As someone who for personal safety reasons wants to be extra alert with an increased awareness of my surroundings, these earbuds achieve what they're designed to do and perfectly fit my needs.

Good enough
This open ring design is definitely a great idea and Sony absolutely stepped up their game with this technology! The earbuds are so tiny you could hardly feel them and you could still hear people talking to you while listening to your favorite music or podcasts. The sound is well balanced and there is no glitches. The battery doesn’t die quick and you can charge for as quick as 10 minutes to have an hour play time. When I got these I stopped using my AirPods as I found these to be more comfortable. Video and audio calls are crispy clean sound. I got no issues and I am waiting for improvement to the bass. And responsiveness to the stop/play tap. Other than that I highly recommended anyone to try this new technology.

Clear sounds
These LinkBuds are great. They are comfortable enough for everyday wear and they fit snuggly in your ear. They also charge pretty quickly and the battery lasts a decent amount of time so you don’t feel as if you’re always having to charge the ear buds. I love the Sony brand and their products.

Not my go to buds
These Sony linkbuds are just... okay. I had high expectations for them but ultimately they were not as great as what I'd thought they would be. They fit really well in my ear but it did take me a few times to get them snug. These buds are really unique in that aspect. The case also feels very light, definitely a difference between other buds I have. The sound.... whew. I'm not really a technical person but if I would've put these on without knowing the brand, I would've thought they were those $5 ones. That bad. It even feels like they aren't very loud. I caught myself trying to turn it up when it was already at max. I'll stick to my other pair.
