Sony’s quirky LinkBuds are insanely cheap (with a 2 year warranty) a few months after their release

Written by admin

While there are many contenders for the title of best wireless earbuds available right now that deliver as impressive features and winning designs as Apple’s wildly popular AirPods and AirPods Pro, the Sony LinkBuds released in early 2022 certainly stand out from that pack… in a most unexpected way.

This one decidedly unique-looking bad guys don’t offer state-of-the-art active noise cancellation for a simple reason, but strive to “connect your online and offline worlds” using large holes drilled in the center.
The main purpose of this unconventional “open-ring” design is to make music listeners more aware of their surroundings, but at $179.99, the LinkBuds were clearly a tough sell for the true wireless earbud-loving masses. That might explain why a “top rated plus” eBay seller seemed in a hurry to put these things up for sale at a very special price in “as new” condition.
The same seller, called Secondipity, can already get a better deal than last month, charging just $63.99 for “certified” refurbished units in gray and white colors with a two-year Allstate warranty included. All you need to do is remember to enter the “SUMMER20SAVE” promo code at checkout before July 13th to get an additional 20 percent off the already discounted $79.99 price and “settle” for fully functional units that show “minimal or possible signs of wear”. †
Given their… unorthodox design choice, the first generation Sony LinkBuds (not to be confused with the more conventional ones) LinkBuds S) certainly come with an impressive list of features including noise canceling technology, “high quality balanced sound”, precise voice recording capabilities for crystal clear phone calls, up to 5.5 hours of battery life (or 17.5 hours with the charging case included), IPX4 water resistance and Adaptive Volume Control functionality.
AirPods Pro killers certainly aren’t these puppies, but at $64, they certainly don’t have to be for (some of) you to consider them a good deal.
