ACEplus Melody Bluetooth Audio Player

The new ACEplus Melody is an interesting, if fatally flawed, experiment. The guys at EC-Asia should be commended for trying out new concepts.

The Bluetooth feature is certainly very useful. You can immediately answer an incoming call without taking off the earphones or pulling out your mobile phone. This is one feature that worked well in the Melody.

However, the implementation of its other features are far from stellar. From a utter lack of a display or built-in memory, to the poor colour scheme and the tiny buttons, this is a hard player to use and love.

Perhaps EC-Asia was aiming for the value segment of the market. But the lack of a user-friendly interface and the really bad earphones are enough for us to relegate this audio player to the junk heap.

Sorry, guys. But we hope you get it right in the next version.
