Sony’s LinkBuds S Overview:
Sony’s LinkBuds S marks the world’s smallest & lightest TWS earbuds thus features a more conventional closed design, but with a light body weight. In short, it fits right into your ear, with no strings attached. The case also remains compact and pocketable. The earbuds are lightweight at just 4.8 grams per earbud. It also arrives with an ergonomic form factor for a secure and irritation free wearing experience. The buds are rated IPX4 for sweat and water-resistance meaning you can take them for a sweaty workout or a slight drizzle won’t damage them. The company is also working on an AR game called Ingress. This will use these earbuds’ spatial sound technology to “enable players to enjoy a new experience in which sound is delivered according to the direction they are facing.”
Redmi Earbuds S has Bluetooth 5.2 with both mono (use only one earbud at a time) and stereo (use both earbuds together) support and an improved chip for better data transfer. Though the Integrated Processor V1 is there by which ANC/ENC (Ambient/Environment Noise Cancellation) remain the same as seen in its predecessor, the major upgrade is the ultra low latency gaming mode. These earbuds give you the best of both worlds – natural ambient sound when you want to interact with your world, high quality noise cancelling when you need to focus. LinkBuds S automatically switches between Ambient Sound Mode and noise cancelling depending on where you are and what you’re doing.
Moreover, Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience. The main feature is Just by taking the earbuds out of your ears and the music stops – a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds. Pop the earbuds back in and the music starts again. Here any physical buttons are replaced by the touch panel. On a remarkable note, you will able to feel Dolby Atmos experience via these earbuds.
You can enjoy a full working day of charge – 6 hours – from your headphones and store another 14 hours in the case. That means a full 20 hours of listening every time you leave the house. The case has a micro-USB port for charging.
