What is the KEF Porsche Design Space One Wireless?

Meet KEF, hi-fi manufacturer with an excellent success rate in the land of loudspeakers. Meet Porsche Design, the luxury lifestyle arm of the company whose fast cars you can’t afford. They’ve joined forces to make a pair of Bluetooth headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) – and they’re a solid offering.

They’re not exactly cheap, though, and rivals are strong. The Sony WH-1000XM2 are smarter, and the B&W PX sound better. Still, there’s plenty here to like.

Design

The Space One Wireless are easily among the smartest-looking headphones you’ll spot on the street. They offer a subtle design, although the aluminium headband helps to establish a premium vibe. The headband and ear pads look and feel convincingly enough like leather, although it’s actually ‘leatherette’ plastic.
