KEF MUO Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – Neptune Blue – Great sound

Brilliant and great build quality.

Read a lot off reviews as we all do when looking at such a large selection off portable speakers ,i withered it down to three which met my needs and the kef looks and high rating for sound wonit for me and iv had it three weeks and the sound quality no matter were i have it is amazing nottoo basey just right ,so easy to set up from iphone and ipad.

5* for single speaker0* for any attempt to connect two without dropping out more than 3x per minute ->immensely frustrating. Here are the specifications for the KEF MUO Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – Neptune Blue:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Design by Ross Lovegrove. Sound by KEF
  • 12 hours playback time
  • State-of-the-art wireless sound
  • Pure KEF sound streamed wirelessly via Bluetooth aptX
  • Rated 5 stars by What Hi-Fi? and voted the best Bluetooth speaker of 2015 by Stuff.TV

The kef muo would probably be out of place at a festival, or a camping trip, but is perfect for an afternoon in the park. The buttons are accessible and overall it’s really easy to use. I like how it looks good vertically and horizontally. It’s also louder than comparable speakers i’ve used, and the one that maintains the most clarity at maximum volume levels. Sound quality and feel are fantastic.

Great sound from a small enclosure. Neat and stylish toovery pleased with my purchase.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Amazing speaker 5* product backed up by 5* service from KEF
  • For the size, a really great speaker!
  • Superb; the little wonder is very capable and can also get very loud!

Wow finally a blue tooth speaker that sounds amazing , so far i love everything about it and will be buying a second soon.

Well-made with crystal clear sound.

I bought the storm grey version and it arrived on friday. First impression on opening the box: wow. The speaker is beautifully made, a little heavy but feels very very nice when you hold it. I connected to my iphone in a snap and was ready to go. Superb highs and vocals, but bass sounded hollow. Have now been playing my kef muo throughout the week-end. Speaker is well broken in and what a difference to bass. Not the strongest for a portable speaker. But more that adequate for my listening style.

So much better than my old bt speaker but cost twice as much. Solidly made and also quite heavy that means you may not want to take it with you if traveling by plane. However, the performance is sparkling for such a compact speaker. It is easy to pair and thereafter can be linked to your devices easily.

Lovely bit of kit, extremely well made and sounds very good. I would have been happy with it at full price but i’m delighted with it at the reduced price i paid.

Just works, greatsound, perhaps not quite as loud as expected, but great overall product.

Great speaker, fantastic sound and image, however i purchased 2 to gain the (superb) stereo effect and pairing them proves to be a bit of a mission every time – taking several tries and several minutes to pair them upon each use. I have tried to search in vain for any tips or to determine if i am doing something incorrectly. Sound – 5 stars – pairing two -2 stars.

Impressed by its sound and design, really like it.

I have used various speakers from jawbone and beats. This was the first one that i bought from kef and wow it did not disappoint. I have owned this speaker since march but i always wanna use items before reviewing. This speaker has not let me down at all. The volume from it is fantastic the styling is amazing and unlike beats speakers the sound is not dwarfed by way to much bass. This has clear words when turned up to full and just the correct amount of bass to avoid distortion. In the box you get a well made metal speaker with easy to use buttons and easy bluetooth pairing. I had an issue with mine last month when it would not charge (had a blue light but yet when unplugged the battery died 2 seconds later) a quick email to kef on a friday, i sent it on the monday to them and it was back with in a week (got it on monday) with full email support all the way through. This was great customer service for the first time of contact with this company and was dealt with perfectly. I would happily buy this speaker again.

Product is listed as wireless speaker with leather case only there was no leather case. I was dubious of this from the outset as the price is pretty much fixed wherever you look and the case is about £40 extra. So the speaker came without the case. I didn’t complain as the price was the same as the best elsewhere without the case but. . It is listed as a speaker with leather case so this should really be amended. Great speaker though as you would expect from kef.

Superb kef quality as usual.

I’ve lived with this product for sometime having purchased it from a store locally. I have to say it sounds really good reproducing my music playlist via spotify mostly. Nicely built – real weight and quality finish. Ideal also placing around the house as its compact size and sleek design make it look cool anywhere. Now the weather is getting better, i might try it outside.

Sound quality good, handy, excellent toy.

After a lot of deliberation, i finally bought one of these. As expected, the build quality is superb and the sound is outstanding. Unfortunately, as time passes, better and cheaper speakers are available.

Bought as a birthday present for my partner. It is larger and heavier than i expected; very solidly made. It is very easy to set up and sounds fantastic.

Could be a bit more bass but im very happy with the purchase. Bose sound link mini is probably as good in my opinion.

    Really like this kef muo speaker. Out of the box it feels heavy and exceptionally good quality, what you’d expect from kef. The sound out of the unit doesn’t really disappoint either. The mid-range is good and clear but the treble could be a little more responsive and crisp. Nice punchy bass, which at full volume, does make the device vibrate a fair bit. One small design flaw that i can see (which is why i haven’t given 5 stars) is that the rubber feet on the bottom are not long enough. Therefore the unit can be easily rolled over when sitting flat. A simple extension of the length of the feet on your next production run could help solve this small issue. Having said that, this speaker is amazing and i use it nearly every day, mostly in the garden throughout the summer months. Thinking of buying another one to create stereo sound in the living room for parties etc.

    • I don’t like boomy bassy speakers, which seems to cover most of the bluetooth ones i’ve heard – until this one. It has a good balanced sound. I normally listen on a stereo separates system (nothing fancy, but reasonable good sound), and this little bluetooth does a good job in comparison, eg when away on holiday. I just wish i could afford two of them and get a stereo sound.

    I don’t have the terms of reference that some of the other reviewers have; only a friend’s jbl bt speaker. I love this product so much i bought 2 of them, so i can get true stereo out of them – no less than brilliant. You can really crank these speakers up, the presence is phenomenal, with little or no distortion at high volume. I am not an audiophile, however, what i can say is that they sound great, balance, poise, sound-stage, are all the terms usually applied to a speaker – to me the muo has it all. The build quality is superb. Love them, highly recommended.

    “excellent sound, had a small issue and kef were a pleasure to deal with. Kef repaired the faulty battery that wouldn’t charge. However, battery issues have reappeared, if plays for about two hours then quits, and this is pretty dire for the price and now warranty has expired. Long and the short of it is that it is unreliable, we took it away with us twice and it let us down twice.

    Not bad but low volume output for the price. At quiet volume sounds are good though. Depends on what you will use this for.

    Excellent sound quality – clear, open, bass is surprisingly deep and tight (recommend using a decent cable if using the line in source, surprising how much bass response is lost with many of these cheaper cables). Good at the previous price of £249, bargain at the new price of £179.

    Have loved kef since i’ve had a set of kef kit 3’s built for me many years ago. I was very happy to see that they have entered this market. I travel quite a lot and this was perfect for me. Clean accurate sound across the board.

    Great sound for a portable speaker. It sounds best to me stood upright everything seems to just balance better. Not too big for traveling – as some of these are.

    Brought it primary for holidays. This speaker is immense, just listening to shine on you crazy diamond and for the size of the unit i did not expect such immersive sound and a bargain price too boot. Thinking of getting another for stereo playback.

    • After 2 years, no longer holds a charge. This is pathetic for a brand with this reputation for quality. The functionality was never the best, not simple like sonos, however the sound is good.
