Cambridge Audio Unveils A Hi-Fi Alternative To Apple’s AirPods

In an interesting turn of events, the audiophile-focused brand, Cambridge Audio, has revealed that they’ll be releasing their own true wireless headphones. Aside from the fact that these in-ear monitors are the company’s first foray into the true wireless earbud market, what’s even more enticing is their price point — dropping them rather strategically into the realm of Apple’s dominative AirPods.

The Melomania 1 might be Cambridge Audio’s first endeavor into the realm of true wireless in-ear audio peripherals, but don’t let that steer you away. Known far-and-wide for their exceptionally high-end gear, like hi-fi turntables, amplifiers, and speakers, the British company has more than a leg to stand on when it comes to audible expertise. That’s fully realized in the Melomania 1 — a great-looking pair of buds that sport a 5.8-millimeter Graphene driver (for impeccably-realized bass and treble), a lightweight 4.6-gram silhouette, and up to 9 hours of playback on a single charge. If you’re the type that’s easily worried by battery life, don’t fret; the company’s unique carry case boasts an additional 36-hours (or 4 full charges) of play time for your in-ear companions, meaning you’ll never have to go without your favorite music, podcasts, or audiobooks for long. The Melomania 1 are available for purchase on Cambridge Audio’s website for $130.

Purchase: $130
