Sony LinkBuds S review: big sound in smaller, lighter earbuds

Sony LinkBuds S: One minute review

The Sony LinkBuds S are not visually surprising in the same way as the first Sony LinkBuds. They didn’t even fit in your ear, but are designed to let outside sound through a loop over the ear canal. Strange, but pretty cool.

But actually, the Sony LinkBuds S are surprising in their own way when you get close to them, and you realize they’re smaller and lighter than any alternative design you’ve come across. They’re designed like all the other best true wireless earbuds, except they pack Sony’s noise canceling technology into an amazingly discreet design.
