KEF Mu7: Stylish design Bluetooth headphones (over-ear) with ANC –

KEF sound meets the design of long-term collaborator Ross Lovegrove: The KEF Mu7 wireless headphones combine uncompromising sound with discreet style.

KEF has continued its partnership with visionary designer Ross Lovegrove to create the Mu7 – a winning combination of technical and aesthetic perfection. Known for his innovative approach and fluid, sculptural forms, Lovegrove has designed over-ear headphones that are sophisticated and sleek, fitting harmoniously into the wider Ross Lovegrove Collection for KEF. Lovegrove has previously worked with the brand to create the ultimate Muon speakers, Muo portable speakers and Mu3 headphones.

KEF draws on years of commitment to technological innovation and high-performance audio equipment to continue its mission of presenting music as it was originally made. KEF focuses on the nuances that give sound special meaning, preserving the integrity of a recording with minimal tweaking to provide an insightful listening experience that is a pure and accurate reproduction of the original recording.

Ergonomic aluminum construction

The Mu7 headphones are available in two elegant color variants: silver gray and anthracite gray.

The Mu7 headphones have an ergonomic aluminum construction, manufactured with the utmost precision. A light but extremely stable headband ensures an optimal acoustic seal and minimal pressure on the ears. Memory foam ear cushions adapt to the shape of the head and improve both passive and active noise reduction and bass response. A pivot point above the ear cups allows the headphones to swivel and fold, ideal for compact portability.

KEF MU7 headphones in case
Of course, a high-quality case also belongs to the KEF MU7.

A capacitive touchpad on the right earcup allows users to answer calls, skip tracks and control volume through a series of intuitive touches and swipes.

Customized by KEF engineers, the Mu7 headphones feature enhanced codec technology that delivers KEF’s signature high-resolution sound quality wirelessly. A full-range dynamic driver sits in each of the closed earcups for flawless sound performance that reveals even the most subtle acoustic details.

Smart Active Noise Cancellation technology

Sophisticated Smart Active Noise Cancellation technology uses multiple filters to capture ambient noise and then uses a special algorithm to selectively suppress individual frequencies. For hands-free calling, Clear Voice Capture (cVc) isolates the speaker’s voice and minimizes all other noise picked up by the microphone to ensure crystal clear conversations regardless of the environment.
