Cambridge Audio's Melomania Touch earbuds have a revamped, delicate design and a plush charging case. Cambridge Audio has replaced the cheap-looking plastic case for a larger, pill-shaped case covered in a pleasing, soft-touch “microfiber leather” material. The outer panel contains the touch sensor, which can be personalized using the accompanying app.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
Cambridge Audio's Melomania Touch wireless earbuds have improved design. Touch-sensitive controls are the most-lauded feature, but they don't work as seamlessly as we'd have hoped. We've often found ourselves frustrated with buds that don't register our taps, buds that lag, and buds that are so highly strung that a gust of wind is enough to engage a skip.

Pros[**]
  • Wide soundstage and agile rhythmic handling
  • Improved battery life
  • Improved app support
Cons[**]
  • Touch-sensitive controls don't work as seamlessly as they should
  • Touch controls are frustrating
