Sony’s LinkBuds S are the best noise-cancelling earbuds for working and everyday use. They improve upon the LinkBuds with upgraded 5mm drivers, active noise-cancellation (ANC) and stronger microphones. You also get Sony 360 Reality Audio, Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) Extreme, and LDAC.
In our Sony LinkBuds S review, we applaud these earbuds for their balanced, well-defined sound, great call quality and solid active noise-cancelling. They’re also compact and quite comfortable to wear. The Sony LinkBuds S earned a high rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars from us and our esteemed Editor’s Choice award.
In real-world usage, the LinkBuds S earbuds delivered vibrant, well-balanced, sound with depth and strong bass. The earbuds’ noise cancellation drowned out everything from car engine noises to the tumbling sounds of a running washing machine.
Design-wise, the LinkBuds S sport are compact and lightweight with a small oval body and in-ear fitting. Whether you’re working out or get caught in the rain, IPX4 rating protects the buds from sweat and water splashes. On ear-touch controls respond to taps and long hold gestures whereas motion detection auto-pauses sound when you remove the earbuds from your ears.
Like all Sony wearables, the LinkBuds S include Headphones Connect app support. This free companion app lets you customize your sound using an equalizer, toggle ANC and set your favorite virtual assistant.
If you’re in the market for true wireless audio wearables, Sony LinkBuds S are a solid choice.
