KEF has announced the launch of the MUO, a new wireless Bluetooth speaker created by KEF in collaboration with award-winning designer Ross Lovegrove, who previously worked with the audio brand when he designed the high-end luxury Muon loudspeakers.
Under Lovegrove’s design direction, the MUO wireless speaker inherits its sculptural aesthetic from the unique visual style of the Muon, making MUO the only sub-£300 contemporary audio product to draw its design language directly from a high-end luxury product costing six figures!

KEF engineers worked with Lovegrove to create an extremely strong molded internal enclosure to house MUO’s innovative drivers, high-performance digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) and other internal components. These are encased in an inert outer shell of extruded aluminium, with soft rubber feet optimally positioned for MUO to be sat at exactly the right angle for desktop use.
MUO’s internal design features KEF’s high standards of acoustic engineering, designed to ensure the best possible level of sound reproduction at the price. To that end, KEF has created an ingenious miniature version of the legendary Uni-Q driver array – used in the ultra-premium Muon, Blade and Reference loudspeaker models – and using the same FEA modeling techniques. You can synchronise a pair of MUOs, to stream stereo sound via Bluetooth aptX. Alternatively, when you want to place them far apart, at a party for example, simply select the ‘Dual Connect’ party mode to replicate the same full-range response in both speakers, so that everybody gets the full benefit of the music you’re playing.
MUO’s design come complemented by a choice of five finishes: Horizon Gold, Storm Grey, Light Silver, Neptune Blue and Sunset Orange.
MUO will be available from 21st September 2015 until 18th October, two specially selected MUO, finished in Horizon Gold and Storm Grey will only be made available through Harrods Technology, with the Horizon Gold finish continuing as an exclusive finish until the end of 2015.
