The new Mu3 earphones from KEF combine a sleek minimalist design with high-resolution sound for lads on the move.
There has been a deluge of new bud-style earphones on the market this year – ironic for a period in human history when many of us were at home more than ever and where we were likely enjoying the benefits of the kinds of over-ear headphones that only douche bags wear in public. However, as any audiophile will testify, there are earphones and then there are earphones and with light at the end of the Covid tunnel shining upon our faces, it might be time for you to invest in a pair of the latter.
Fortunately KEF, one of the biggest names in high-end audio, has created its first earphone model, the Mu3, which promise pristine, high-resolution sound for gents on the move.
The Mu3 Noise Cancelling True Wireless earphones have benefited from the design genius of Ross Lovegrove as well as the engineering boffins at the brand’s Maidstone headquarters in Kent, meaning you have earphones that not only sound extraordinary but look good doing it.
The brand, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, is best known for creating truly stunning hifi speakers, both wired and wireless, and now incorporates its obsession with quality into the pint-sized new earbuds, which benefit from KEF’s specially tuned Active Noise Cancellation technology to keep the outside world at bay, as well as 8.2mm full-range dynamic drivers that deliver well-balanced, coherent sound with rich midrange, detailed bass, and crisp high tones.
Add in Lovegrove’s design persona, which is sculptural and organic, leaving the earphones resembling drops of morning dew and their case a smooth river stone, and you have a sublime exercise in aesthetic and engineering excellence.
Your new earphones should also fit well – there’s nothing worse than becoming reliant on them only to lose one when you’re on the run – and the Mu3’s balanced design ensures smart weighing and a tailored fit with a secure seal thanks to four subtly different sized ear tips.
You’ll be able to listen to your music and make calls all day thanks to that ultra-light-weight design and comfortable fit, a high-capacity battery life, a splash-proof design, and stable, latency-free Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity with both iOS and Android devices.
Just in time for that brave new world.
