TWS earbuds are one of the best accessories one can have. Like every other gadget, earbuds also have their pros and cons. Particularly, having ultra-lightweight earbuds will have even more specific pros and cons. As far as the pros are considered, it will have less ear fatigue and will likely be more comfortable for the user.

Lightweight gadgets are also better to carry around, and might even feel like you're not wearing them. For the cons, there's no word on bass boost on the Sony LinkBuds S. Plus, the design released by the publication shows the earbuds without a stem. So this too could cause some discomfort to the user.

That said, these are mere speculations. For all we know, Sony might have considered these factors ahead of the release.

We're still unsure when the Sony LinkBuds S will launch and whether it'll make it to the Indian market. The report claims the Sony LinkBuds S will go on sale for EUR 199 in Germany (around Rs. 16,230) soon. This would make it even cheaper than the AirPods Pro!
