Sony has just released the LinkBuds S, the latest addition to its wireless earphones lineup. The latest TWS earbuds offer active noise cancellation and LDAC support for USD 199.99. This article will discuss the key specifications, features, official price, and availability of the Sony LinkBuds S in Nepal.

Sony LinkBuds S Overview:


The Sony LinkBuds S has a more traditional closed-back design, as opposed to the LinkBuds, which has a unique open-loop design.

The lightweight nature of these TWS sets them apart from the competition. Each earbud is only 4.8 grams in weight, with Sony claiming them to be the lightest and smallest wireless earbuds with both ANC and Hi-res certification on the market.

Sony offers three color options: black, white, and beige (Desert Sand).

The case appears to be more pocketable than the original LinkBuds, but it is still larger than Apple AirPods Pro. Furthermore, the case lacks a pairing button, instead, relies on Sony’s Swift Pair approach for quick pairing.

Sony LinksBuds S also has active noise cancellation and an ambient mode. There is also automatic wear detection and other features such as Adaptive Sound Control and Auto Play. They are also water-resistant to IPX4 standards.
