The world’s best in audio technology celebrates 60 years of leading high-fidelity innovation and looks ahead to a future of unparalleled sound experiences.

For six decades, KEF has been a proud pioneer of extraordinary sound quality, creating remarkable, award-winning speakers. Over its time its continuous innovation and pursuit of excellence has earned the brand a justifiably devoted following of audiophiles, artists and creatives. 

As part of its celebrations this year, KEF will launch its charitable Foundation and several new boundary-pushing products in its continued mission to democratise sound and ensure the enjoyment of high-fidelity for generations to come.  
KEF LS50 Wireless II
KEF is named after its original site - Kent Engineering and Foundry in Maidstone - where it continues to develop its bar-setting products today. Established in 1961 by Raymond Cooke OBE, the BBC engineer was propelled by a love of music and refusal to compromise. Since its inception, KEF has existed to fill rooms with music as it was made to be heard and to move souls with truly authentic soundscapes. Over the years it has never lost sight of its British roots, uncompromising quality or boundary-pushing innovations.

Always at the cutting edge of audio tech, KEF pioneered the early use of synthetic materials and was the first company to use computer simulation to measure and develop speaker performance, followed by the creation of its disruptive Uni-Q, Uni-Core and revolutionary Metamaterial Absorption Technology. The original collection of high-fidelity speakers, architectural speakers and subwoofers has evolved to include breakthrough wireless speakers, portable Bluetooth speakers, and headphones

Entering this next era, KEF wants to ensure that the future of high-fidelity is personal, giving more people access to an exceptional listening experience.

In this anniversary year, KEF will launch the most advanced products it has ever created – to be announced in the coming months – which will again push the boundaries of the listening experience, both at home and on the move. 

Securing the future of unrivalled sound design, KEF will launch its Foundation which is created to support the unsung heroes of the audio world through grants and scholarships; to put coming generations through leading courses and to offer grants for activations and initiatives that push the boundaries in the audio space. 

The programme is aimed at the professionals and pioneers who work behind the scenes to bring the magic of high-fidelity alive through innovative products and ideas; including acoustic engineers, audio engineers, sound mixers, and designers across music, film and gaming.
