Earlier, some media outlets unveiled the Sony LinkBuds S TWS headset and revealed details about its appearance. Recently, the German WinFuture further revealed the detailed parameters of this headset.
As per information from WinFuture, the LinkBuds S will reportedly be the smallest and lightest wireless earbuds in this category. It weighs only 4.8 grams and can offer up to 20 hours of battery life.
The headset comes with a 5mm diameter drive unit that is IPX4 certified and supports Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. In addition, the headphones also support active noise cancellation and high-resolution audio.
Furthermore, the built-in microphone of Sony LinkBuds S with the Speak-To-Chat feature stops playing music as soon as the user starts a conversation. And the headset has the same advanced noise reduction mode as the WF-1000XM4 and the ability to switch seamlessly between this mode and the ambient noise mode.
Price and Availability
Jon Prosser says the LinkBuds S are expected to be announced by Sony next week on May 18th for $199. The WH-1000XM5s are also expected to be announced in May, with an estimated price of $399.
The new earbuds are expected to have a revamped design as seen in previous renders. Above we see the black, and white versions, but they should also be sold in beige.
