KEF is named after Kent Engineering and Foundry where our story began. Our founder Raymond Cooke was propelled by a love of music and a refusal to compromise, and he leveraged technology at every turn to ensure KEF’s position at the cutting edge of audio.
Since 1961, from our UK home, we have created remarkable – award-winning – speakers. From our ground-breaking Uni-Q technology to our bar-setting LS50 Wireless, KEF exists to fill rooms with music as it was made to be heard, to move souls with truly authentic soundscapes.
Now in its seventh decade, KEF continues to establish itself at the forefront of audio excellence. Committed to ‘sound before all else’, KEF introduced the ground-breaking use of Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) in speaker design which has been awarded the ‘Innovation of the Year’ by What Hi-Fi? Awards 2020. A truly revolutionary tool in the KEF acoustic armoury, MAT is created to eliminate 99% of the unwanted sound from the rear of the driver. MAT allows KEF to design a new range of revolutionary products including the new LS50 Collection consisting LS50 Meta and LS50 Wireless II, which delivers an unrivalled purity of sound.
