Cambridge Audio Adds Some Spice to Their Original Wireless Earbud Recipe!
Today Cambridge Audio released Melomania 1+, an upgraded version of their original True Wireless Earphone, the $99 Melomania 1. The new model adds a bunch of features originally introduced as part of their flagship wireless earbuds, the Melomania Touch (Our Review Here).
This includes added control and features from the Melomania App (Android & iOS), like customizable EQ and “Find My Earbud”, plus the High-Performance Audio Mode which sounded very good to my ears in the Melomania Touch.
The Melomania 1+ also gets an upgrade to USB-C fast charging instead of micro-USB and additional memory foam ear tips for a better fit.
Melomania 1+ is available today March 9th, 2021, and is priced at $139.95. (Buy at Amazon)
That’s only ten dollars less than the step-up Melomania Touch, but the Melomania 1+ should offer a slightly different user experience, like a little more bass and push-button controls for those who don’t like touch controls.

Designed for those who truly love their music
Cambridge Audio Melomania 1+ earbuds are built for music lovers who enjoy hearing every detail, nuance and beat in their favorite songs.
They are also built for daily use, with a super lightweight design that offers a seamless experience whether you’re listening to your favorite playlist, enjoying some time away from a noisy home, or going on your daily run.
With each earbud weighing just 4.6g and IPX5 certification protecting them against rain and sweat, the headphones can be worn for hours on end throughout the day.
Now including both medium and large size memory foam ear tips to ensure a secure fit, Melomania 1+ comes with multiple ear tip options which offer the perfect combination of excellent noise isolation, a comfortable fit, and better sound quality overall.
Long-lasting battery life
Charging the Melomania 1+ earbuds is now quicker than ever thanks to the inclusion of USB-C on the charging case. This makes it easy to top up the earbuds’ battery level when you’re on the move – meaning you’ll never be without music for too long.
Melomania 1+ has nine hours of battery life on a single earbud charge, while the charging case offers four times that. This results in an incredible 45 hours of total playtime.
Customize your sonic style
Melomania 1+ is compatible with the new Melomania app, letting you unlock valuable new features. With the free app, you can customize EQ settings to your heart’s content, personalizing the sound of Melomania 1+ to suit your musical taste.
Through the Melomania app – available for iOS and Android devices – users can also check the battery level of each earbud, locate misplaced earbuds on a map, and receive firmware updates to take advantage of future user experience improvements.
Award-winning audio performance
With all the award-winning performance of the original Melomania 1s, the Melomania 1+ earbuds deliver a stunning sound experience that sets the standard for affordable true wireless earbuds.
Cambridge Audio’s expertise in designing high-quality audio products spans over five decades, and its London-based design team has ensured the Melomania 1+ carries on this legacy.
Inside the Melomania 1+ earbuds are 5.8mm graphene-enhanced drivers, graphene being a lightweight material chosen by Cambridge Audio’s engineers for its incredible strength and rigidity. These qualities give the headphones their dynamism and response, achieving the immersive performance that Melomania headphones are renowned for.
The Melomania 1+ earphones also now benefit from the inclusion of Cambridge Audio’s ground-breaking High Performance Audio Mode, a world-first in wireless in-ear headphones that uses the same hi-fi grade amplification found in the company’s renowned CX range of stereo amplifiers. This default sound mode ensures the Melomania 1+ earbuds offer a higher dynamic range, a wider soundstage, and lower noise levels than before. It’s a high level of audio fidelity that is unheard of at this price point.
The true wireless design features Bluetooth 5.0 technology and supports AAC and aptX codecs – meaning smartphone users can stream high-quality wireless audio without signal drops.
The Cambridge Audio Melomania 1+ comes in black or a new white finish, and is available to purchase directly from Cambridge Audio and Amazon, priced at £119.95 / €129.95 / $139.95.
