Sony Linkbuds review – wireless earphones with a hole in the middle!

The Sony Linkbuds retail for £149 and are without a doubt the weirdest wireless earphone I have ever reviewed.

I waited before I released my review so that I got the new firmware that also allowed the Sony Linkbuds to connect to the Sony headphone app. The new firmware is vital! It makes such a big difference to these wireless earphones.
