Sony’s Innovative LinkBuds Earphones Feature a Unique Open-Air Design

Noise-canceling headphones have reigned supreme in the audial department for quite some time now. Whether you’re utilizing their capabilities to sleep on a flight or work from home, they are ideal in several scenarios. Be that as it may, the technology can be a bit isolating, forcing you to stray away from hearing what’s going on around you. With this in mind, Sony has developed the LinkBuds, a unique pair of wireless earphones that look to conjoin the outside world with whatever you’re listening to.

Before we start, allow us to address the elephant in the room: the LinkBuds’ design is quite unlike anything you’ve seen from a pair of earphones. They boast a powerful 12mm ring driver unit that paves the way for high-quality, authentic audio transparency, providing listeners with the opportunity to take in their favorite song and a friendly conversation all at once. However, seeing that this is a Sony product, users can also immerse themselves in the music entirely thanks to the tech giant’s 360 Reality Audio.

Albeit remarkably pocket-sized, these in-ears pack a punch while providing immaculate voice pickup tech thanks to the manufacturer’s A.I.-developed noise reduction algorithm, assuring that you don’t need to worry about any choppy phone calls upon wearing them. For added durability, the earphones are rated IPX4 for water resistance, so they’re built to handle anything from a light drizzle to a hard sweat for up to 12 hours when using their case.

If you’ve grown tired of the same old listening experience, then Sony’s latest release looks to provide quite the unorthodox one. The LinkBuds are set to release on February 17th for $178.
