KEF & PORSCHE DESIGN GO WIRELESS
KEF announced their collaboration with Porsche Design early this year with three new products including a portable Bluetooth Speaker, In-ear, and Over-ear noise-canceling headphones. You can read the StereoNET review of the Motion One In-Ear headphones here.
The Space One Over-ear headphones targetted the traveler with its luxurious and sophisticated look. Absent, however, was connectivity features such as wireless and Bluetooth.
This week KEF has announced the next incarnation of the headphones, the Space One Wireless. Now bringing Bluetooth connectivity to the feature list and boasting a Red Dot 'Best of the Best' design award, switchable Active Noise Cancellation has been retained.
The new wireless version uses the same 40mm wideband drivers with 20mm Neodymium magnets like the non-wireless model.
KEF have managed to cram in Bluetooth AptX technology, and rechargeable batteries with a guarantee of up to 30 hours, class-leading, running time with active noise cancellation activated.
Just in case you forget to charge the battery before a long-haul flight, KEF also supplies an audio cable with a built-in microphone as a backup.
Engineered from cast aluminium and a sandblasted titanium finish, Space One Wireless headphones feature contrasting black detailing.
Available this month, local pricing is not yet confirmed but KEF Space One Wireless will sell overseas for 399 Euro / £350.
