Light, robust and supremely comfortable, M500 hi-fi headphones are designed for people who are serious about sound.
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.
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 aluminium 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 optimise 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 aluminium 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 moulds itself to the shape of your ear for a perfect fit. As well as maximising bass performance, this means you can listen in complete comfort for as long as you like.
Thanks to KEF’s unique multi-directional Smart Hinge, the lightweight aluminium frame automatically conforms to the shape of your head, sitting neither too tight nor too loose, and folds up neatly afterwards. Together with the overall lightness, the breathable and sweat-resistant memory foam ear pads and headband feel naturally comfortable, even for long periods.
An acoustic sealing ring in each ‘racetrack’ ear cup provides an excellent seal that cuts out extraneous noise while minimising sound leakage. All you hear is your chosen track in its purest form, while those around you hear virtually nothing.
Compatible with most smartphones, computers and other mobile devices. Featuring an integrated in-line microphone and remote control on a tangle-free flat cable for iPhone and other Apple products, it allows you to operate the play functions or switch between calls and music. Just plug in and relax for First Class entertainment.
Elegant, compact and finished to the same distinctively high standard as your headphones,
the cleverly designed matching case protects your M500 while you’re out and about.
For your comfort and safety, KEF headphones are designed to comply with the CENELEC standard EN60065/A12 for protection against excessive sound pressure.
