Cambridge Audio reveals its first pair of wireless headphones
British hi-fi and home cinema specialist, Cambridge Audio, has launched Melomania 1 – its latest, innovation and the company’s first pair of true wireless in-ear headphones.
Designed to work with laptops, tablets, portable audio players and smartphones, the Melomania 1 – named after the live music venue on the ground floor of Cambridge Audio’s London R&D centre – sets a new standard for British-designed Bluetooth headphones by combining premium materials, precision engineering, high quality wireless audio performance and superb battery life.
With up to nine hours of battery life on a single charge, the Melomania 1 boasts significantly more stamina than many of its true wireless rivals. Also, the supplied charging case enables the user to fully recharge the headphones as many as four times over, resulting in a further 36 hours of on-the-go use.
Cambridge Audio has been crafting transparent-sounding, beautifully-engineered British audio products for over 50 years, and its award-winning London-based design team has ensured the Melomania 1 is no exception.
The Melomania 1’s 5.8mm drivers use graphene in their diaphragms, Cambridge Audio’s engineers selecting the lightweight material for its outstanding strength and flexibility. Those qualities give these headphones the dynamism and response to deliver music with a clarity and presence that belies their tiny size and near-imperceptible weight.
The true wireless design incorporates Bluetooth 5.0 technology for energy efficiency and signal stability. The headphones have a wireless range of up to 30m, and are able to carry the latest high quality AAC and aptX codecs.
And to ensure that voice calls remain crisp, clear and free from background noise, the Melomania 1 features high quality microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS) microphones and Qualcomm’s Clear Voice Capture (cVc) noise-cancelling technology.
The headphones weigh just 4.6g each and are supplied with a choice of silicone and memory foam ear tips. These allow the user to tailor the fit to ensure an ideal combination of comfort, noise isolation and sound quality.
And thanks to IPX5 certification, the Melomania 1 is also fully protected against water and sweat, so the headphones don’t have to come off just because there’s a sudden rain shower or the user is about to attempt a new personal best.
The Melomania 1 is now available to purchase directly from Cambridge Audio, Amazon or Richer Sounds, priced at £119.95/$129.95.
