On the more affordable side of things, those who don’t need the latest and greatest can go with the previous-generation XM3 ANC Earbuds at $128 instead. These may not deliver the best personal audio package on the market these days, but still arrive with plenty of value. At the time of release we found these to be some of the best earbuds on the market, and our hands-on review still reflects that.
As for what the latest from Sony deliver, the company just launched its unique new LinkBuds last month with quite the interesting design approach. Centered around a new open-style form-factor, these true wireless earbuds deliver a transparency-mode like feature through hardware with a circular and hollow driver that allows you to still hear audio from the outside world. We just took a hands-on look at what to expect from the recent debuts, which you can check out right here.
