There's no noise cancellation on offer here, but the sound isolation is very good, provided you find a good fit with the eartips included in the box. Connectivity comes courtesy of Bluetooth 5, with support for AAC and AACX.

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
The Melomania 1 Plus have a full charge generating 9 hours of use. In low Power mode, playtimes are some of the highest in the category. Bluetooth 5.0 operates reliably at 30 feet; stepping out of this distance will cause audio stuttering or dropped calls. Craftsmanship is sharp, plus having 45 hours of playtime is awesome.

Pairing is easy using the handy quick start guide. Only one earpiece needs to be paired on your device. In the default High-Performance mode, you'll get seven hours from a charge or 35 hours in total courtesy of four more blasts from the case. Free Melomania app is now considerably more stable than it used to be.
