DESIGN STORY

The KEF sound

Music you can feel - so realistic you can almost touch it. KEF’s ultra-light driver technology and voice coil system are designed to preserve all the glories of the original performance in full-range high definition: crisp, intricately detailed highs, seamlessly fluid midrange and tight, clean bass. Opera or Hip-Hop, on the move or just chilling, you experience every note.
