These Sony LinkBuds rivals are safety-first open-ear wireless earbuds

Open-ear wireless earbuds are becoming more and more common – check out the Sony LinkBuds (and LinkBuds S), Bose Sport Open Earbuds and Clear Audio Arc for proof. Now we have a follow-up to the last pair – the Clear Audio Arc II – and they have better battery life than the originals.

They last an hour longer from the buttons, with eight hours of battery life compared to the seven of the originals. Using the charging case gives you a total of 35 hours of runtime before needing to recharge, which is 11 hours more than the five-star ANC-carrying Sony WF-1000XM4 (though 10 less than the industry-leading Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 Plus).
