  • Very good sound quality for the price
  • Strong battery life for a true wireless earphone
  • Comfortable fit
  • In-ear fit feels a bit dense


Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 are truly wireless in-ears with an earplug-like design that protrudes quite a bit out of your ear. They have deep, powerful bass and a fairly even mid-range, but their treble can sound a bit dark. Cambridge Audio estimates battery life to be roughly nine hours, which is very good for true wireless earphones.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from nextpit have found the following[***]:
The design of the Melomania 1 is typically Cambridge Audio. The 5.8mm drivers in these are made from graphene, making them lightweight (4.6g each) yet strong. There’s IPX5 certification to protect them from sweat and the occasional downpour. Bluetooth 5.0 technology provides wireless connectivity at up to 30 meters and improved battery efficiency.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 are decent for mixed usage. Their sound quality isn’t great but should satisfy fans of bass-heavy genres. Their earplug-like design isolates an impressive amount of noise. However, they’re a poor choice for watching TV and gaming due to their poor latency.

  • Well-built design
  • Superb battery life
  • In-ear fit won’t be comfortable for everyone

Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio's Melomania 1 earbuds sound excellent across the board. Sound is rich and warm with largely bass and mid-range being given the pedestal but there's enough top-end to give colour and vibrancy. You can connect over Bluetooth 5.0 which offers up to 30m of range. There's also both AAC and aptX codecs so you get good audio quality whether you're using an iPhone or Android.

  • Excellent sound quality
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Good battery life
  • No active noise cancelling

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 true wireless earbuds are incredibly comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time. Sound quality rivals some of the best over-ear headphones, which is all but unheard of for buds of this size. Battery life is simply outstanding; you get nine hours from the buds themselves, with a further 36 hours of juice contained within their charging case. Cambridge Audio include a credit card-sized cheat sheet that lists all the different button press functions.

  • Superb sound quality
  • Comfortable fit
  • Excellent battery life
  • Noise cancellation is a little overpowering

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio’s Melomania 1s have a 5.8mm graphene-reinforced full-range driver in each earbud. The in-ears can be operated by Google Assistant or Siri voice control. At 4.6g each, the 1s aren’t heavy and they’ll remain comfortable in your ears for hours.

Reviewers from whathifi have found the following[***]:
The Melomania 1 IEMs are truly wireless, so there are no wires anywhere except the little supplied micro USB cable to connect the charging case to a power source. Inside each unit, there's a 5.8mm graphene driver, a triple-core processor (including a Qualcomm subsystem to support both AAC and aptX audio codecs) a noise-cancelling mic for clearer calls or chatting to Siri/Google Assistant. An IPX5 rating means they're water and sweat-resistant too.

  • Comfortable fit
  • Impressive sound quality
  • Easy to use app
  • No dedicated EQ
