  • Robb Report 2016 – Best of the Best Award

    "…the single apparent source configuration makes the Blade Two so gratifyingly coherent right across the frequency range, with noticeably more precise imaging than is possible from any other speaker. What you hear from the Blade Two is more lively, natural and real."

    Sound & Vision - Top Pick

    "... played nice and loud, totally rocked my world…the M400 projected a huge soundstage around my head, and the music's ominous low rumble was viscerally felt. The M400 sounds refined and clear, with bass that is definitely goosed up just a tad... but it's done tastefully." (Download full review here)

    Mr Porter - Review

    "Designed by Mr Ross Lovegrove, who worked on early Sony Walkmans and Apple computers, it plays astonishing stereo. Buy two – one as a left speaker, one as a right – and you get a real hi-fi, but portable. A sound investment."

    AV Forum - Recommended Award

    "There is also – by the simple nature of the design – a level of stereo image that is simply not present in rivals…The KEF is one of the least expensive devices I've tested that has the ability to show the benefits of high-res audio."
