Sony is rumored to be launching a new headset, the LinkBuds successor (YY2964), as part of its audio product lineup. This headset is said to feature impressive noise cancellation capabilities, making it an attractive option for consumers looking for high-quality audio experiences. Additionally, the YY2964 is rumored to be priced accessibly, making it a compelling choice for those seeking a balance of performance and affordability in their audio devices.

The new set of Sony earbuds, LinkBuds successor, has been leaked by a Twitter tipster happening through the Korean RRA certification process. The upcoming model, known as YY2964, appears to have been developed alongside the WF-1000XM5 earbuds (YY2963). This suggests that they may share similar design elements or features. The certification, dated from mid-February, indicates that the new earbuds will be manufactured in Vietnam.

Though the picture shared is not very clear, however when in comparison to the previous LinkBuds model (YY2953), the new model features a redesigned look, including a change from three recharging pins to two. Additionally, there seems to be a proximity sensor near the Sony logo, resembling the setup on the LinkBuds.

Although import/export details are provided for the headset, specific color information is not included in this leak. Overall, this leak offers a glimpse into the design and features of the upcoming Sony earbuds, with more details expected to be unveiled closer to the official launch.

The current model of the headset, the YY2964, uses a Zenipower Z32H battery rated at 3.85V 0.12Wh. It remains to be seen whether Sony will continue to use this battery or opt for a different one in the upcoming model.

Furthermore, the system-on-chip (SoC) in the current model, the Mediatek MT2822MA, is rumored to be replaced with the Mediatek MT2833, which is also used in the WF-1000XM5 earbuds. It is speculated that Sony will utilize a System in Package (SiP) to streamline internal packaging for the new Linkbuds YY2964 model.

The new Linkbuds YY2964 model is likely to be launched sometime between early and late March. Additionally, there may be updates regarding the WH-1000XM6 headset and Sony’s YY2981 Headset, so it’s advisable to stay updated on any announcements from Sony.
