  • Excerpt: I use this product as my primary home and portable headphones. I wanted something that wasn't a pair of in-ears because I prefer devices that go on or over ears. The headphones are comfortable, well-built (lots of aluminum and pleather which feels nice), and stylish.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Lightweight, Stylish
  • Cons: Muddy sound, Poor Value

  • Summary: Design/durability: With an all aluminium and leather construction, the M500 feel really premium and durable, while being lightweight enough. The flat cable seems sturdy and can be swapped easily (there's a 2nd cable w/ remote included). Earphones can be folded.
  • Pros: almost flawless sound quality; top notch comfort; premium build quality and finish; detachable cable
  • Cons: average isolation

  • Summary: KEF are a speaker manufacturer of the old heritage, stuffy hi-fi systems with mortgage level speakers. As has been the case with many audio manufacturers, the headphone sector is where it is hot right now and everyone (KEF included) are wanting a piece of the pie.
  • Pros: Amazing detail retrieval, decent soundstage for a small can, high end engineering and construction
  • Cons: Slightly dubious fit, can be a little wobbly on the head when walking around

  • Pros: Fantastic sound. Amazing value. Premium build quality. Very comfortable for an on-ear headphone. Very portable.
  • Cons: Isolation is mediocre.

  • Cons: Slippery headband (not suitable for other active use than walking), isolation is a little below average (leakage is low though)
