    Music First

    Everyone deserves a great soundstage, low distortion, and high dynamic range. It’s what makes recorded music come alive.

    Melomania M100 use Class AB amplification, the same type found in many of our award-winning amps, to deliver the authentic sound quality we’re known for – even when you’re on the go.

    Let’s Get Personal

    We’ve tuned M100 to deliver our authentic signature Cambridge sound, but we know many people have their own style.

    We’ve specified a 7-band graphic equaliser in the all-new Melomania Connect app to build your own custom EQs. Plus, we’ve included 6 pre-set profiles for different music genres or spoken word listening.

    Keep the Outside Out

    M100 feature adaptive hybrid ANC, which uses information from Feed Forward mics, for external sound, and Feed Back mics, that detect unwanted sound in your ear canal. It automatically adjusts the noise cancellation level based on sound ingress and tightness of fit in the ears.  

    Enjoy music, podcasts, and calls, uninterrupted by irritating background noise.

    All Day and All of the Night

    M100 continue our tradition of consigning battery anxiety to history, with up to 10 hours of continuous playback possible from a full charge – even with ANC on.

    High-Tech. As Standard

    aptX Lossless works with compatible devices to deliver bit-exact, CD-quality audio with no compression, whilst aptX Adaptive automatically adjusts to keep the music going in busy areas like railway stations at up to 24bit/96kHz.

    Bluetooth 5.3 adds extra capacity, speed, stability, and efficiency over its predecessors, helping music, podcasts, video, games and calls to sound their best.

    London Calling

    When you buy new headphones, they need to be great for calls too. M100 use 3-microphone cVc, a system developed by Qualcomm that helps your voice stand out above environmental noise.  

    A series of convenient features like Multipoint Connection, Siri and Google Assistant compatibility, reduced-latency gaming mode, and our new Melomania Connect app complete the story.

    Like all our products, Melomania M100 are made to last. They’re designed in London, so IPX4 water resistance was a must. Their compact case protects and charges them in your pocket. The packaging is 100% recyclable and free from plastic.

    Over-the-air firmware updates will add capabilities and keep M100 right up to date – watch this space.
