KEF, another British company known for its high-end speakers, has entered the headphone market with a luxurious on-ear model, the M500.
The good: The KEF M500 on-ear headphones are sleekly and sturdily designed and offer a very comfortable fit. They also sound very good and come with two detachable cords, one of which has an Apple-friendly inline remote/microphone for smartphone use. The headphones fold up and fit into an attractive protective carrying case.
The bad: Fairly expensive; some people may not find the sound detailed enough.
The bottom line: They're fairly pricey, but the combination of very good sound and a sleek, comfortable design, make the KEF M500s contenders in the $300 price class.
