The M500 on-ear headphones show an unmistakable design with visual reference to a musical note, indicating the product’s high sound quality. The technically sophisticated hardware is housed securely in an anodised aluminium frame. The wiring system between the two drivers is internally managed, which successfully retains the clear, elegant design language of the headphones while considerably enhancing wearing comfort at the same time. Furthermore the connection cable is interchangeable.

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.
