Overview

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

Summary

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.

Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The Melomania 1 are Cambridge Audio's first foray into true wireless headphones. Bluetooth 5.0 technology provides wireless connectivity at up to 30 meters and improved battery efficiency. Call quality is helped by Qualcomm's Clear Voice Capture (cVc) noise-canceling technology. The battery life is, without doubt, one of the highlights of the headphones.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio's Melomania 1 earphones have a water-resistant build that should hold up for exercise. Internally, the earphones house 5.8mm graphene-enhanced drivers delivering a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. On tracks with intense sub-bass content, they deliver a solid low-frequency response.

  • Water-resistant build

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 are decent truly wireless headphones with a unique earplug-like design. They're not the most comfortable in-ears we've tested, and some people may even have trouble getting them to fit at all, but if their fit works for you they have outstanding passive isolation. They have deep, powerful, bass and a fairly even mid-range, but their treble can sound a bit dark. They don't support NFC or multi-device pairing, if your audio source supports Bluetooth 5.0.

Pros[**]
  • Very good noise isolation
  • Very comfortable
  • Very good battery life
  • Good noise isolation performance
Cons[**]
  • Not the most comfortable in-ear fit

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio's Melomania 1 earbuds cost around the £100 mark. This makes them cheaper than the RHA TrueConnect, Sony WF-1000XM3 and Samsung Galaxy Buds. They're extremely lightweight at just 4.6g per bud and have an IPX5 rating so are splash and sweat resistant. There's a button on each earbud and they are a little too easy to press. Play and pause is pretty easy but you'll have to remember which bud to press and how many times for different functions.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Excellent battery life
  • Compact design
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio's Melomania 1 earbuds have a 45-hour battery life. They're significantly cheaper than the Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Earbuds. The 5.8mm drivers are made from graphene, which Cambridge Audio says is "outstanding strength and flexibility" Pairing the buds is easy; simply remove the buds from their charging case.

Pros[**]
  • 45-hour battery life
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Slim, bullet-like design
  • Improved app
Cons[**]
  • Not as comfortable as Apple AirPods

Cambridge Audio's Melomania 1s are true wireless in-ear headphones. Powered by aptX Bluetooth, they can last up to 45 hours on a single charge. Qualcomm's Clear Voice Capture technology ensures reasonably crisp call quality. At 4.6g each, the 1s aren't heavy and will remain comfortable in your ears.

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. There's just one button on each earpiece (designed to look like the Cambridge Audio logo), occupying its entire surface. We find the claimed 30m Bluetooth 5.0 connection and pairing between the two monitors extremely reliable, even when we left our iPhone XS Max streaming tunes on the table and walked outside wearing them.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive sound quality
  • Impressive battery life
  • Comfortable fit
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
