Sony recently announced its latest generation flagship headphone WH-1000XM5. Now, the company has announced a new audio product, this time around, it’s a new truly wireless earbud called the LinkBuds S. A pre-launch report said that each earbud will weigh just 4.8 grams, which means that they will be the smallest and lightest TWS earbuds in the market. Now, Sony has officially launched these and you will be surprised to know that what has been reported turns out to be true, it is actually the lightest TWS in the world. Let us tell you that the company had launched LinkBuds a few months back, which had a unique open ring design. However, the new LinkBuds S has a more traditional closed design, but with a lighter body weight.
Earbuds come with comfortable fitting
In other words, it should come as no surprise that Sony is specifically marketing this aspect, saying the earbuds were designed to be as comfortable as possible. It comes with an ergonomic form factor for a secure and irritation free wearing experience. Thanks to a new collaboration with Niantic, which is best known for making Pokémon Go, the company is also working on an AR game called Ingress. It will use the spatial sound technology of these earbuds to “enable players to enjoy a new experience in which sound is distributed according to the direction they are facing.”
