At $199, Sony’s ANC LinkBuds S kinda dunk on AirPods Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro.
First, let me thank Sony for being sensible with the LinkBuds S name. Unlike the WF-1000XM4, you can actually say the name without fumbling it. LinkBuds S — simple, just like AirPods or Galaxy Buds. Good job.
The LinkBuds S are $20 more than the donut-shaped and open-design LinkBuds, but have active noise cancellation (ANC).
