Breathable sweat resistant ear pads and headband together with the ergonomic racetrack supra-aural ear shells that follow the contour of the human ear provide a tight acoustic seal for improved performance and good noise isolation, they are ideal for prolonged listening.

デザインについて

「身体・人間」の視点からみて、応募対象が提供できること

Elegant and distinctive, the M500 has been precision engineered in aluminum to assure maximum comfort. The racetrack supra-aural ear shell, which follows the contour of the human ear, provides a tight acoustic seal for improved performance and good noise isolation, whilst the light aluminum frame provides the optimal clamping force to ensure maximum comfort - ideal for prolonged listening.

「生活」の視点からみて、応募対象が提供できること

With sweat resistant, durable and breathable memory foam ear pads and headband along with a cleverly designed Smart Hinge, a multi-angle hinge on the same axis, M500 folds and rotates easily to adapt to different size and shaped heads - better than any rival, allowing them to fold up neatly into the stylish protective carrying case supplied, it’s the ideal travelling companion.

「産業」の視点からみて、応募対象が提供できること

KEF understands that the demand for good sounding on-the-go headphones has increased rapidly in the past few years. As a new product extension of a high fidelity speaker brand, KEF's new headphones carry an attached legacy that no other pair of 'cans' can offer.
