The Space One over-ear headphone is the product of the collaborative effort between 2 remarkable companies, KEF, the renown British Audio Gear company and Germany’s Porsche Design, the globally known industrial design studio.
You get 50 hours of playback time with noise cancellation turned on. Driven by 40mm neodymium magnet drivers, Space One uses built-in microphones to detect ambient noise and cancel out undesirable noises. It doesn’t eliminate external noise entirely, just low-level rumble and hum of the sort you usually get on aircraft and trains.
As with the Gravity One wireless speaker produced under the same collaboration effort between KEF and Porsche Design, Space One features Porsche Design’s signature cool minimalistic styling, with sandblasted matte dark metallic finish.
The high expectations that we had for Space One was exceeded once we experienced it hands on. Its sound with noise cancellation activated, remain precise and authentic, without the synthetic effects of other competing noise cancelling headphones. The quality of its sound will impress the most critical audio enthusiasts – it is that good. Plus it fits comfortably for long listening sessions.
Space one is a singular product with the best of both worlds – the beautiful industrial designs of Porsche Design and the undeniably authentic sound of KEF.
Other noteworthy noise cancelling headphones that you should take a look before making your purchase decision are Bose QuietComfort 35 and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9. Both offer the wireless connectivity crucial for people on the move.
