Sony’s upcoming flagship over-ear headphones aren’t the only ones to have leaked ahead of a public presentation, as official-looking photographs of a new set of Sony noise-canceling wireless earbuds have appeared on the internet thanks to leaker SnoopyTech (via Android Police).
The earbuds will be called the LinkBuds S, according to SnoopyTech, implying that they will be similar to Sony’s LinkBuds, which were released in February.
The original LinkBuds have a unique “open-style” design with an unusual donut-like hole that is meant to help you hear your surroundings better while wearing the earbuds. The LinkBuds S, on the other hand, have a closed design similar to Sony’s WF-1000XM4s.
However, based on the photographs given by SnoopyTech, the LinkBuds S appear to include a large vent on the exterior of each bud, which might be utilized to aid in some kind of transparency mode, allowing you to hear what’s going on around you.

The LinkBuds S will also “seamlessly change from ambient sound to enhanced noise-canceling and enable automatic playback that learns from your behavior,” according to SnoopyTech.
According to the photos, the new earbuds will be available in golden beige, black, and white, as reported by The Walkman Blog. The LinkBuds S include a proximity sensor that appears identical to the WF-1000XM4s, according to the Walkman Blog.
