When an original music source is compressed, Sony's Digital Sound Enhancement Engine faithfully restores music to high-quality sound that’s closer to the original recording.

Crystal clear calling

Precise Voice Pickup technology optimally controls multiple microphones and performs advanced voice signal processing that allows the person on the other end of calls to hear you clearly, even through noisy surroundings.

360 Spatial Sound Personalizer

Speak to Chat

With the Speak to Chat feature, the LinkBuds will automatically pause your audio as soon as you speak to someone so you can effectively have a conversation without taking the headphones out and will resume playing your audio.

The LinkBuds are packaged with the environment in mind, using recycled plastic materials that come from automobile parts and plastic-free packaging that reflects Sony's commitment to reducing the environmental impact of their products.

Sony lost common sense in pursuit of Innovation
I bought LinkBuds 4 days ago and I have tried my best to fit them in my years with all possible ways found in the internet. But left with sore ears as they don't fit at all. It doesn't serve the basic purpose. This shouldn't be treated as earbud as it is something speacial device made for very few people with LARGE ears. If there is a way to return it, I would love to do it. I spent my hard earned money for such a useless thing and there is no way I can return it due to hygiene reasons. If you think this is out of the box innovation then you should let the people return if they don't like it. Please do some basic testing prior taking the product to public. Overall I would say you you are selling a broom stick for the people looking to but a drone and claiming the broomstick will fly if you sit on it in a specific angle.

super sound and perfect ANC to kill motorway noise
Originally bought to connect to the Smart TV so that the family is not disturbed. But the ANC is really great. We have motorway noise on our balcony. To read a book in peace, I often use the Sony LinkBuds-S without a mobile phone - just as a noise canceler. I think that the motorway noise is reduced by 80% and it no longer bothers me.
We now use 3 Linkbuds-S in our household.
By the way, top music sound, good battery life, very light and a great fit in the ears. What more could you want?

Always Broken
These LinkBuds are the best and worst earphones I have even purchased. When they work they are perfect, light easily fit in my ear and the app is stable and good. But on my second pair as they keep breaking. Lots of distortion in the left ear .....neither Amazon or Sony care much about getting these replaced or repaired quickly. The latest are likely to be back at Sony for a apology no real explanation.....not sure I will ever buy Sony again

Dissapointment !
The description and fanfare for these LinkBuds do not match the reality. They look good out of the box but are very difficult to fit snuggly in the ear! The amount of times I had to pick them off the floor after they had fallen out of my ear is beyond counting. Having finally got to the point where they now rarely fall out the actual sound quality is not good! The feature that allows you to hear surrounding sound while listening to music actually is a terrible distraction and can lead to the surrounding sounds drown out the actual music particularly on the underground trains. I cannot express how dissapointed I am with this product but of course I am unable to return them because in the view of Sony they are not faulty ! It is £150 wasted.

Buds light!
Easy to set up and wear. Unobtrusive and light. Excellent sound quality with an easy app to remind you to charge. App and buds regularly updated.

Pretty sure they will catch fire soon.
I bought these because I work in an industrial environment and I want to be aware of my surroundings while walking but I also want to be able to answer calls at times, they work perfectly fine for that purpose, they're not too loud which I think is a benefit in my case but sometimes the case overheats while charging, and I cant find a specific scenario for when it happens, I've tried to recreate it by using different chargers & cables but it seems to be random, the plastic on the case is starting to look burnt and started to crack due to the heat, another downside of the earbuds is that they're kind of hard to hold as you're removing them or placing them in their case, it always makes you feel like they might slip your fingers and you'll drop them, they are magnetic and they snap in place into the case but for some reason they will absolutely bounce out of the case every single time you accidentally drop it, they take some getting used to, at first they might feel like they will fall out of your ear but this has actually never happened to me and at times I even forget I have them on.

I have been using my Linkbuds for about a month now. I really like them. I knew what I was buying, a set of buds that allowed me to hear what was going on around me.

I had heard people complaining about the lack of bass! Earphones and buds as a rule accentuate the bass these days. I prefer a more natural reproduction that is more accurate to the album as mixed and I get this with the Linkbuds with a reasonable sound stage.

I would recommend them if you know what they are designed for.
