On other occasions we have already analyzed a product from Cambridge Audio, a famous quality sound firm that is based in the United Kingdom and is widely known for the quality of its products. This time we are going with a recently launched product that we do not want to miss, the Melomania Touch.
Cambridge Audio's latest True Wireless (TWS) headphones have hit the market and we've tested them. We tell you our in-depth analysis of the new Cambridge Audio Melomania Touch with all its detailed features. Without a doubt, the British company has once again done excellent quality work.
Design: Bold and quality
You may like them more or you like them less, but you already know that in my analysis I like to applaud brands that distance themselves from boring or standard and opt for a daring or different design. That is the case with these Melomania Touch, the new headphones from Cambridge audio.
- Did you like them? You can buy them at the best price at THIS LINK.
Well the British company he claims to have analyzed around 3000 different ears and the highlight has been this peculiar and irregular design. On the outside we find a polished plastic that looks quite good, a couple of rubber covers and its pads.
Personally soy of those who have problems with in-ear headphones because I drop all the models. This does not happen to me with the Melomania Touch, they have a silicone "fin" that makes the headphones not move and is suitable for all kinds of activities. The huge number of pads that are included with the product makes it almost impossible not to adapt them to your liking.
- Sizes Charging case: 30 x 72 x 44mm
- Sizes Headphones: Depth 23 x Height (earpiece without hook) 24 mm
- Weight Case: 55,6 grams
- Weight Headphone: 5,9 grams each
It is obviously necessary to talk about the cover We find a fairly premium charging case, made of imitation leather for the outside, it has five battery indicator LEDs and a USB-C port on the back. The box has an oval shape and a compact size and comfortable to transport, it seemed to me a success and the truth is that it exudes quality.
Finally, note that we can buy headphones in white and black, depending on our preferences and tastes.
Technical characteristics: Focused on Hi-Fi
Let's talk numbers and start with its 32-bit dual-core processor and single-core audio subsystem. Qualcomm QCC3020 Kalimba 120MHz DSP, in this way and through Bluetooth 5.0 Class 2 we obtain high-quality sound transmission capabilities, although a lot has to do with all this the codecs: aptX ™, AAC and SBC with profiles A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, HFP.
Now we go directly to the drivers, those little speakers inside the headphones that transform so much processing into quality sound. We have a dynamic system with a diaphragm with graphene reinforcement of 7 mm, the result is the following data:
- Frequencies: 20 Hz - 20 kHz
- Harmonic Distortion: <0,04% at 1 kHz 1 mW
At a technical level, we also have to mention the microphones, and we have two MEMS devices with cVc noise cancellation (also from Qualcomm) and a sensitivity of 100 db SPL at 1 kHz.
We have inside the case with a battery of only 500 mAh and that it will charge at 5V through the included USB-C charging cable, not the power adapter. This will require about 120 minutes of full charge from 0% to 100%.
Audio quality: Our analysis
You have already seen a lot of numbers that tell you practically nothing unless you have certain knowledge, so let's go to our mundane analysis, what has been our experience using them, especially considering that here we have tried almost all of the high end TWS headphones that are available in the market.
- Low: Honestly, when headphones have low protagonists, we are usually faced with a commercial product that wants to cover other deficiencies. This does not happen with the Melomania Touch, it was something to expect considering that they are a product of Cambridge Audio. However, the fact that they do not come preset with prominent bass does not mean that they cannot look like that, we will talk about this later. The bass is where it needs to be and allows us to listen to the rest of the content. Obviously, if you are thinking of listening to only commercial reggaeton, it may not be your product.
- Media: As always, we do the cotton test with a bit of Queen, Robe and Artic Monkeys. Few headphones can fool this music and we find a correct differentiation of the instruments.
Generally speaking, we do not have quality losses, we do not have disturbances and the voices are heard well. Our tests have been carried out through a Huawei P40 Pro with aptX and an iPhone through AAC.
Melomania application, an added value
We have been testing the application Melomania in beta phase. The result has been exceptional, the application will allow us all this. You can find the application for both iOS and Android (at this writing time it has not yet been officially released).
- Create custom profiles
- Activate / deactivate touch functions
- Adjust the equalization
- Enable / disable transparency mode
Undoubtedly, it is very important to be able to receive updates (two while we were testing them) and above all to customize the audio quality on headphones of this level, bravo to Cambridge Audio.
Autonomy and user experience
We start with autonomy, 50 total hours if we take into account their up to 9 continuous hours (only through the A2DP profile) and the remaining 41 that the box grants. The reality is that we get about 7 hours of continuous sound in high quality and with the transparency mode deactivated, around 35/40 hours in total at high volumes.
With prolonged use they are comfortable, iEven if we activate the Transparency Mode, that will receive sounds such as alarms or voices through the microphones to reproduce them clearly, and is that being in-ear headphones with exceptional grip, we have a passive audio cancellation good enough to enjoy music and that the Transparency Mode may be necessary .
My experience with the Melomania Touch has been quite good, we are once again facing a fairly premium product from Cambridge Audio, this is also reflected in its price, from 139 euros You can buy them both on its official website and through THIS LINK.
