The promise of superior noise-canceling performance has been the selling point for earphones since their inception. Now, Sony has decided to flip that narrative and surprise us with their unique design and innovative technology that automatically adapts to individual needs.
The LinkBuds are definitely not designed to keep you in your private music bubble, and that’s exactly what makes them perfect for all-day wear. With them, Sony promises an immersive listening experience that smartly adjusts to your daily activities.
The tiny but powerful Sony WF-L900 LinkBuds feature:
- Ultra-small and light
- Wide Area Tap
- Precise Voice Pickup technology
- 360 Reality Audio
- IPX4 splash-proof and sweat-proof design
- Integrated V1 Processor for balanced high-quality sound
- Adaptive Volume Control
These unconventional-looking earphones have the goal to keep you aware of your surroundings while you listen to your favorite music or podcasts.
The first thing that catches the eye with LinkBuds WF-L900 is the unique open-ring or donut-like design that is meant to naturally blend ambient sound with digital sound, keeping you aware of your surroundings while still providing well-balanced and high-quality sound. Their unique design is what makes them super-comfortable as well, so you don’t have to take them off throughout your day.
They promise up to 5.5 hours of battery life and up to 90 minutes of playback after a 10-minute charge.
Thanks to Precise Voice Pickup technology, the person you are having a call with will hear you clearly, even when you are in a noisy environment. The noise-reduction algorithm suppresses the outside noise and extracts your voice with excellent clarity in most noisy situations.
If you choose to activate Adaptative Volume control, these open-style earbuds automatically optimize the volume depending on your environment: they adjust to lower volume if you are in a quiet surrounding and higher volume in a noisier one. A rather handy feature in a variety of situations!
Another nice touch is Speak to Chat feature that automatically pauses your audio for a short while when you start talking to someone, meaning you don’t have to take them off to have a real-life conversation.
Sony strives to make their products as low impact as possible, so they used recycled plastic materials from automobile parts in the production of LinkBuds. They come in dark gray or white, so no surprises there.
These quirky buds come with a price tag of $179.99, which is not too high for what they bring to the table.
