Amazon is now rolling out Prime Day 2022 discounts on some of Sony’s just-released earbuds, with the new Sony LinkBuds S leading the way at $158 shipped in two styles. Marking only the second discount to date since launching back in May, these are now down from $198 in order to deliver a new all-time low at $40 off. This beats the first discount we tracked by an extra $20 in order to deliver the best price yet.
Delivering what Sony contends are the world’s smallest and lightest hi-rise earbuds with noise cancellation, the brand has packed. its Integrated Processor V1 into a refreshed design. Alongside blocking out ambient audio, there’s also 6 hours of battery life that extends by another 20 with the charging case, as well as a new software feature that allows the LinkBuds S to take the wearer’s environment into mind to adjust the listening experience. You can get a better idea of what to expect in our launch coverage, as well.
Also seeing one of its first discounts so far, the standard Sony LinkBuds are sitting at $148 via Amazon, too. Normally fetching $180, these are seeing much of the same all-time low status with $30 in savings attached while beating our previous mention by $10. Taking a more unique approach than its newer S counterpart, the LinkBuds pack an open-ear design that lets ambient sound pass through from your surroundings. That’s thanks to an open back ring-shaped driver that pairs with other interesting tech you can read all about in our hands-on review.
We’re still waiting for all of the flagship Sony offers to go live come Prime Day proper tomorrow, though these discounts on some of the more unique offerings serve as a first taste to the new all-time lows that are around the corner. There are also some other pre-event discounts in our headphones guide that are worth a look, as well.
