The MUO features three versatile configurations - mono, stereo or 'dual-connect' party mode for use however the mood strikes you. KEF Muo has been voted the best portable Bluetooth speaker in 2015 and 2016!
Designed by Ross Lovegrove and engineered by KEF, MUO is packed with innovative technologies to deliver uncompromised KEF quality sound when you’re streaming music wirelessly from a computer or mobile device. It packs a punch out of all proportion to its size. Stream your music wirelessly via Bluetooth aptX or through the 3.5mm auxilery input. With most Android mobile devices, you can also benefit from the NFC ‘tap-to-pair’ function - just hold the device against MUO and they’re paired ready to stream your music in seconds.
"Sit-Anwhere Uni-Q Sound
KEF’s legendary Uni-Q point source driver arrays are used in most of our products, right up to our flagship MUON, BLADE and THE REFERENCE. Uni-Q gives a wide sound dispersion with continuous and consistent sound quality. By using the same sophisticated FEA modelling techniques, our engineers have developed an ingenious miniature Uni-Q. The central tweeter dome is decoupled from the outer cone by a flexible membrane, and the whole diaphragm is free to pump out midrange frequencies as powerfully as a conventional driver, while allowing the tweeter dome to move independently. As a result, it can reproduce the higher registers with great accuracy. The MF cone is profiled to act as a waveguide for the tweeter, further widening the dispersion to fill the room with full-bodied, stunningly clear sound.
Minimul Sound Interference
The MUO's drive units which flank the central passive bass radiator, are configured to only give treble output from the right hand unit as you face the MUO placed horizontally. This reduces interference to achieve a more non-directional and room-filling sound. Below are diagrams which show the directional sound limitation of a typical compact stereo speaker versus the KEF MUO.
Smart Versatility and Convenience
The KEF Muo can be syncronised to fit any need and occasion. Use a single Muo for superb full range sound or a pair of Muos. Stream superb CD-like quality stereo sound wirelessly via Bluetooth aptX for your computer or other devices. For larger gatherings and parties, you simply select the ‘dual-connect’ mode that allows both speakers to replicate the same full-range response, so that everybody gets the full benefit of the music you’re playing.

19 Best Bluetooth Speakers for Blasting Tunes Without Wires - KEF Muo
"The KEF Muo is a gorgeous compact wireless speaker crafted from metal. It shares design cues with the company's range-topping Muon speakers, thought it is considerably more affordable (the Muon speakers cost $225,000 for a pair). The sound quality of the Muo is top notch for its size. Users can also tweak the sonic experience via a smartphone app. There are many colors to choose from."
"MUO is a lifestyle choice – hence the plethora of colours and the sleek, Ross Lovegrove-designed all-metal chassis. Charge time of the built-in battery is around three hours, and a MUO should deliver sound for 10-12 hours on a full charge. MUOs will find your Bluetooth source with ease, and then treat it with respect."
"Enclosed in extruded aluminum, the MUO, unlike its competitors, has a significant weight, offering stability, solidity and more importantly no sound distortions. As a result, you can play any types of music with a clear and powerful sound reproduction."
"With three versatile configurations – solo, stereo pair or ‘dual-connect’ party mode – and design by Ross Lovegrove, these speakers look as special as they sound...all you hear is the rich, natural and breathtakingly detailed output of the drivers themselves..."
"...it’s an overachiever in many aspects. It’s no small feat to make a speaker of this size sound as big, expansive, and remarkably detailed as it does. I’d enthusiastically recommend the Muo (probably a pair) to non-audiophile friends who are music lovers. I’d even give it a thumbs-up for certain audiophile friends (those who listen to digital, that is). Further proof that great things can, and do, come in small packages."
"KEF's speaker makes its comparatively high price tag seem worthwhile, and highlights the limits of cheaper rivals with its superior performance."

Mr Porter - Review
"Designed by Mr Ross Lovegrove, who worked on early Sony Walkmans and Apple computers, it plays astonishing stereo. Buy two – one as a left speaker, one as a right – and you get a real hi-fi, but portable. A sound investment."
Magazine / Issuing Body:
"...they do sound great either singly or in a pair. So if you are a discriminating audiophile with the money to spend, a pair of KEF MUO’s might be for you especially if you want an aesthetically pleasing package that will spruce up any shelf space or little nook."
""The KEF MUO is our new reference in the category of portable Bluetooth Speakers. Excellent design, smart and sophisticated driver technology and flawless build quality are the foundation for an impressive listening experience. It also can be used flexibly, has a neat App to control it and comes at a truly great price.""
"The KEF Muo is a serious music-reproduction tool intended for those who listen to music seriously, not just as background. Because it was such a joy, I listened to a lot more music than I’d expected to, and found the Muo up to anything I threw at it...."
