KEF enters the Headphone Market

All the rage

KEF has become the latest audio manufacturer to dip its toes in to new waters with the announcement of its first ever range of headphones. The specific new products in question are the M500 over-ear headphones and the M200 in-ear buds.

The over-ear M500s use a full-range 40mm neodymium driver with a high-quality, super light, copper clad aluminium voice-coil that's been specially tuned by KEF's engineers to deliver a musical sound with a tight, clean bass. The aim was to provide speaker quality reproduction from headphones.


The M500s feature a precision-engineered aluminium frame, with breathable and sweat resistant memory foam earpads and headband. The frame design also features a ‘Smart Hinge'; unlike most headphones that require two hinges to fold and rotate the ear pads, the M500s' Smart Hinge can rotate on two axes. Basically, it also allows you to fold them up into a very compact form for carrying around.

The in-ear M200 earphones utilise a user adjustable Secure Arm that helps to keep them snug in the ear, and a rigid aluminium driver housing that is designed to eliminate unwanted vibrations.


The M200s also use unique ‘DDD' (Dual Dynamic Driver) tech, a two-way system with a 10mm driver for the bass and a 5.5mm dynamic neodymium driver for midrange and high frequencies.

The M500's carry a £250 suggested retail price with M200's coming in at £150.
