KEF speakers and headphones: leaping from ‘good’ to ‘sublime’

Since 1961, KEF, has been a prominent name among audiophiles, offering quality high-fidelity audio solutions to the public. Through constant innovation, the company founded by Raymond Cooke has striven to recreate sound as close as possible to its original source, guaranteeing excellent quality audio whether you’re on the go, at home, at work, or anywhere in between.

Hi-Fi sound anywhere in your home or office

KEF’s EGG Wireless Digital Music System functions as a complete system with a built-in amplifier and a digital-to-analogue converter, bringing precision and accuracy in reproducing every tone and nuance in your audio.

The EGG uses KEF’s Uni-Q driver technology, allowing it to reproduce higher registers with great accuracy. It has a maximum output of 95 dB and an amplifier output power of 50W.

Quality and portability combined

One of KEF’s most popular and highly praised products is the Muo. It was created in partnership with British cult designer Ross Lovegrove in the same aesthetic vein as the award-winning flagship loudspeaker Muon, but much much smaller. Aside from its beautiful rounded aluminum exterior, the speaker boasts a mini version of the Uni-Q driver present in both the EGG and the X300A. While smaller in size, its innovative design widens its dispersion to fill the room with full-bodied sound.

KEF's Muo carries much of the same technology that the flagship speakers have, but in a beautifully compact package.

KEF hasn’t been making headphones for long, but don’t let the lack of seniority fool you. The company has brought its 50 years of audio engineering excellence to the headphone game with the M series. Consistent with the rest of KEF’s line, the M series headphones show off a Beyoncé-like “pretty on the outside strong on the inside” quality, with all models being designed by the legendary Studio F.A. Porsche.
