Amazon is now offering the Sony LinkBuds S True Wireless Earbuds for $142.99 shipped. Down from $198, these are now on sale for the first time since the holiday season at within $15 of the all-time low. Dropping by $55, these are now down to the second-best price yet, as well. Delivering what Sony contends are the world’s smallest and lightest hi-res 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.
