KEF M400 (Racing Blue)

 

With its metal chassis and sturdy headband, the build quality offers little to complain about, and the headphones fold up to fit in a nice neoprene carrying case. That case comes with a small V-shaped free-floating divider to keep the headphones finish...

The KEF M400 have metal parts and a sturdy design and are relatively comfortable for an on-ear . They come in a few different eye-catching colors, offer good sound and include a detachable cord with an integrated Apple-friendly inline remote/microphone...

Somewhat expensive; somewhat bass heavy (which may please some and not others).

KEF's M-400 may not be an exceptional on-ear headphone for the money, but it's certainly competent and attractively designed.

KEF M400

 

A little light on accessories for the price, KEF's M400 on-ear headphones do offer a high quality, notably bass-forward, audio experience.

Powerful audio performance with rich, full-bodied bass and solid balance between lows and highs. Detachable cable with inline remote and mic.

Doesn't include many accessories. Purists might find the sound a bit bass-heavy, lacking at times in the higher frequencies.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the M400 delivers robust, deep bass response, and doesn't distort at top listening levels. At moderate volumes, the sense of fullness in the lows is still...
