"Bose is widely known for its noise cancelling technology, but Linner electronics is looking to improve upon noise cancelling headphones by dropping the entry price while maintaining excellent sound quality." - AndroidGuys

“Whether it’s blocking out the sounds of a busy office or the wailing baby on a plane, active noise cancellation (ANC) is a great feature to have in headphones, but it usually means either adding bulk or a higher price tag. With its first earbuds, newly launched acoustic tech startup Linner looks to solve both of those problems.” -Digital Trends

"The Linner earbuds are the world's lightest active noise-cancelling headphones. " -Trendhunter

"The company’s goal is to give regular consumers more affordable access to sophisticated noise-cancellation earbuds that usually have a higher price tag." -Techaries

 

 

"Considering it's features, sound quality, convenience and relatively low price.. this small lightweight package will be coming with me on my next plane trip" - Jose, from Linner beta testing community

"I have to hand it to Linner for squeezing everything this headset offers into such small packaging." - Adam, from Linner beta testing community

 

“First ANC headphones ever for all the time!”

Listening to the sounds of nature or the people around you can be an enlightening experience, but sometimes you just want peace and quiet. If you’re frequently in a crowded area, working at your desk, or commuting, noise-cancelling is a much needed feature. It will help you focus on what’s important: the music. If this is your first time trying noise-cancelling headphones, Linner is the best choice.

Linner is the world’s lightest active-noise-cancelling (ANC) earbud unit that you can take anywhere to achieve quieter, more focused sound. Its revolutionary earbuds are designed to provide you with a comfortably secure fit, exceptional portability, and high performance sound quality.

 

 

 

 

“Hear what you want and block out the rest!”

The minimal design of our earbud controller makes it super slim and lightweight. Grab Linner and go!

Linner delivers full range audio with clear and bright high-end sparkle, warm mids, and a powerful low-end frequency response with an emphasis on bass.

By eliminating up to 95% of ambient background noise around you, Linner gives you a listening experience free of distractions.

Linner makes it possible to hear what is going on around you without having to remove your earbuds under “Awareness Mode.” Stay aware of your surroundings and be safe!

Unlike regular headphones, Linner blocks out unwanted sounds, so you can keep your volume at reasonable, ear-friendly levels.

Linner's in-ear design has soft tips and a secure fit that won't put too much force in your ears. The cone shaped spread is designed to fit evenly across your ears for better comfort.

Requiring no battery, Linner takes power and audio directly from the Lightning connector on your next-generation Apple devices.

“Brings you quieter sound on-the-go!”

Awareness Mode accentuates surrounding sounds and helps you enjoy the wonders of nature.

 

 “Talk, listen, quiet”

“A smaller size gives you freedom!”

Noise is annoying, even painful, but we have found it very difficult to find ANC headphones that offer great sound quality, noise-cancellation, and portability. This is the reason we decided to make Linner happen.

Linner's earbuds are incredibly small and convenient. The unit fits comfortably in any pocket and makes music on-the-go a reality! It only weighs 0.69 ounces (19.6g) compared to similar ANC earbuds.

Weight Comparison

To create a pair of ANC earbuds for daily use, we not only reduced the weight of the earbuds, but we also made them significantly more comfortable. After 8 months of research among 2,000 randomly selected potential users in the market, we reached what we believe are the best sized earbuds with a secure fit and stability that people will find comfortable for everyday use.

How Noise-Cancelling Technology Works

Partnered with ams AG, we make the magic happen with Linner's ANC technology, which absorbs ambient sound with microphones, processes the incoming sound waves, and creates inverse waves to offset them.

In-depth ANC can bring you back to a noise-free world.

Linner is designed for people who love listening to music on the road, such as R&B, Hip-Hop, Pop, EDM, or Rock. It can even give you that feeling of being right there in a live show!

Linner reduces up to 26 decibels of sound across a range of 45 Hz on the low end to 3 kHz on the high end.
