Sony today announced that it will release LinkBuds S, its smallest and lightest noise cancelling truly wireless headphones, in a new colour variation called “Earth Blue”. This follows the white, black, and ecru colour versions that have been available on sale since June 2022. This new offering has been created using recycled water bottle materials. A multipoint connection has also been released, enabling the seamless switching between the LinkBuds series and the WF-1000XM4 headphones via a software update.
LinkBuds S New Colour: “Earth Blue”
The comfortable LinkBuds S will be available in “Earth Blue” colour which uses recycled resin materials generated from recycled water bottles. Parts of the body and case of LinkBuds S in Earth Blue are made from recycled water bottle materials which creates a unique marble pattern. It was originally developed by Sony in pursuit of a new design expression with the aim of expanding the potential use of recycled materials from water server bottles.
In addition to the “Earth Blue” model, the whole LinkBuds series also come with all packaging on the headphones being plastic free and the headphones using recycled materials from automobile parts , reflecting Sony’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of their products.
The LinkBuds S Earth Blue version will be available in selected retail shops and online stores from Mid-November 2022 onwards.
