Like the Muon and Muo speakers and the Mu3 earphones, KEF's new MU7 headphones were developed in collaboration with designer Ross Lovegrove. With a 40 mm full-range driver inside, they are said to offer high sound quality meeting KEF standards, and additionally eliminate unwanted exterior noise through several filters via "Smart Active Noise Cancellation".
For phone calls with the MU7, they carry "Clear Voice Capture" technology, which is supposed to isolate the voice and suppress all other noise. The wireless headphones receive music via Bluetooth with aptX™ HD codec, which is said to offer resolutions up to 24-bit/48 kHz. The lightweight aluminum earpieces as well as the memory foam ear cushions are supposed to provide particularly high wearing comfort. In addition to buttons for basic functions such as on/off, the MU7 are controlled via a touchpad on the right ear piece, which is supposed to promise intuitive operation.
Alternatively, the MU7s can also be powered with music via a 3.5mm cable. KEF states up to 40 hours of battery power, with an additional fast-charge feature that is said to deliver another 8 hours of battery power after 15 minutes of charging.
KEF's new MU7 headphones are expected to become available in November 2022*, in "Silver Grey" and "Charcoal Grey" finishes, and at a price of around €400*.
