The Melomania 1 by Cambridge Audio may set the bar high when it comes to truly wireless earbuds, and with a modest price-tag, these honestly may be the wire-free winner and a sought after replacement to those Q-Tip earbuds you’ve been using.
Cambridge Audio’s first venture into the truly wireless earphone market starts with a bang, as the company released their MeloMania 1. Made of flexible graphene in dual 5.8mm drivers, the Melomania 1 is a stunning pair of wireless buds that you normally wouldn’t expect a company that engineers hi-fi and home cinema products.
Designed to travel with you anywhere, the Melomania 1 will work with everything from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, and any other method you use to listen to your audio. Named after the music venue on the ground floor of Cambridge Audio’s London R&D centre, the Melomania 1 set a new standard in wireless listening, boasting NINE hours of playtime on a single charge. Now if you’re me you’re probably a bit skeptic, so I will be putting the unit that I received through tests to see how close (or how off) that estimate might actually be.
Aside from the battery life per charge (totally an additional 36 hours of additional time from the included charging case), the Melomania 1 are IPX5 sweat and water resistant, making them a perfect fit for the gym especially combined with their optional memory foam or silicone tips that give an optimal fit. They are also one of the few brands that come complete with CVC Noise Cancellation, perfect for getting rid of annoyances in the workplace or just your general surroundings. They also work completely with Google and Siri voice assistants, which I’ll certainly be using with iOS 13. They are also super lightweight, being 4.6g per earbud, you won’t find yourself readjusting them over and over again which is something I can’t say from the fruit earbuds that I tend to have to do after wearing for hours. Now, with all of this being said, I’m sure that you’re wondering how much these will cost right?
