The unique technologies that underpin KEF's passion for creating the most natural possible sound immerse you in the intense clarity and detail of the piece played live: vivid, spacious and exquisitely balanced.
Light, robust and supremely comfortable, M500 hi-fi headphones are designed for people who are serious about sound.
Sweet, natural and beautifully balanced, KEF's 40mm neodymium driver is tuned to deliver full-range high-definition response from 20Hz to 20kHz. Half the weight of conventional copper wire, the copper-clad aluminum wire voice coil improves HF response to enhance musical subtleties and detail. Each aperture in the tuning plate mounted over the drive unit in the acoustic chamber is precisely positioned to optimize clarity, dynamics and bass weighting. Opera or hip-hop, on the move or just chilling, you make the most of every note.
Precision engineered in aluminum alloy and incorporating KEF's ingenious multi-directional Smart Hinge, the sturdy lightweight frame securely locates each ear cup in exactly the right position. Memory foam in the breathable ear pads automatically molds itself to the shape of your ear for a perfect fit. As well as maximizing bass performance, this means you can listen in complete comfort for as long as you like.
An acoustic sealing ring in each "racetrack" ear cup provides an excellent seal that cuts out extraneous noise while minimizing sound leakage. All you hear is your chosen track in its purest form, while those around you hear virtually nothing.
For your comfort and safety, KEF headphones are designed to comply with the CENELEC standard EN60065/A12 for protection against excessive sound pressure.
