KEF EGG Wireless Digital Music System – : Great speakers at a fair price

Speakers
1

[one 12 months of use great desktop speakers. These are great desktop speakers, to me they have a very different sound signature than anything else i have listened to. They really put you front and centre of the music making listening to live recordings feel very intimate. These are great for using as desktop speakers with one caveat – you get the automatic sleep disabled by kef (see end of the review). The sound is clear with good separation and they don’t seem to be too fussy about the source either which is good for streaming services and lossy formats. Overall it’s a very rich sound, other reviews point to a lack of bass but honestly, i don’t hear that at all, they won’t make your teeth rattle with bass, but they are accurate and sound like a much bigger speaker than they actually are. I mainly use them for listening to music, watching movies and playing computer games. I have them connected to a macbook pro via usb and a ps4 via optical, sometimes switching the usb over to the pc if i’m playing on a game. Bluetooth works well too for connectivity to mobile devices. The 1 start removed was because these speakers turn themselves off after about 15 mins with no activity, so i would pause the music while i took a phone call or something, then have to turn the speakers back on and reselect the audio device on the computer. ]

Working day just after recommendation by hi fi specialist they are great bought the kef subwoofer for added bass and these. Bought these the next day soon after recommendation by hello fi specialist they are great obtained the kef subwoofer for included bass and these have recently won desktop what hifi award so pretty happy good for music films and online games.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Wireless, high resolution sound
  • One system for every use,Analogue Input 3.5 mm AUX
  • Designed and engineered to precision with KEF
  • Stream tracks wirelessly via Bluetooth
  • Listen to your music the way it’s meant to be heard

So i was expecting the kef’s not be to equipped to match them established up is straightforward as pie. I failed to acquire these from amazon, preferring to acquire them in human being at my local independent hello if shop. I acquired them principally as a next listening supply and tv relationship in my downstairs sitting down room when i are unable to use the major hello to in the lounge. The set up in the lounge price all over £1000 about ten many years in the past, so i was expecting the kef’s not be to in a position to match themset up is simple as pie, unbox, hook up electricity and wires, research for kef egg on bluetooth, decide on and go. What i wasn’t anticipating was a amazing seem that beats a £1000 established up. They really don’t go down that low bass intelligent so for movies you may require to get a subwoofer, and plug in, but for music the bass is fair but incredibly punchy and restricted. The primary delight is the transparency and clarity of the mid and upper conclude. It truly is really shiny devoid of being brash or trebly, and offers an perception to the music i have but to listen to on just about anything i’ve owned. Playing something effectively recorded and they supply a luxurious audio phase that is tough to explain devoid of underselling these speakers. Even stodgy 80’s recordings audio vivid and alive.

Designed-in program is a disaster. . The seem of the speakers is excellent, but they are ineffective to me. Following obtaining dwelling from the retailer and plugging them into my desktop, i found that they switch themselves off after a small interval of no audio signal. I use my desktop for meditation sessions of 50 percent an hour and use a tiny script for that – there is certainly the seem of a bell as the start off sign and right after 30 minutes you can find supposed to be forest appears to mark the conclusion of the session. The egg turns itself off just after 15 minutes thoughmy desktop is also my alarm clock to get up in the morning with a music playlist i want at that time – also not achievable due to the fact of this. I wish the vendor in the store had instructed me about this ‘feature’, since i would not have acquired themif keg would deliver a way to bypass the software that turns off the speakers it would be acceptable, but due to the fact they really don’t, i will have to bring ’em back again to the shop. Exe file that manufactured the bypass, so incorporating two stars to my assessment now, sort two to four in whole :-).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Cool and Concise
  • Expensive but worth it
  • The best desktop speakers. Period.

Great sound, great build – sadly impossible to use as a reliable set of pc speakers. Great sound and good quality build, however impossible to use as reliable pc speakers because they seem to be more concerned about preserving power than actually functioning as speakers. The systems keeps going into standby mode after 10-15 minutes of silence. That’s right, not maybe like you might expect when you lock the computer or switch it off, or perhaps after a few hours, no, after literally just a few minutes.You then have to manually switch them on again with the remote or by pressing the power button on the right speaker. No way to configure this differently in windows power settings to disable this function. Why anybody thought that was a good idea for a pc speaker system, especially hard coding this extremely short time it takes to switch off, is beyond me. Bottom line: if you rely on sound being readily available, from your pc, such as for audible alerts or whatever else, and you don’t constantly play a sound – which let’s face it nobody does – these will let you down.

I experienced the ruark desktop speakers which gained 2014 whathifi awards and i am so happy that i upgraded to these. The variance in high-quality is obvious. They gained 2015 what hifi awards for a excellent cause. Appreciate them and i am particularly individual about the excellent of tech i get.

So i was expecting the kef’s not be to able to match them set up is easy as pie. I didn’t buy these from amazon, preferring to buy them in person at my local independent hi if store. I bought them primarily as a second listening source and tv connection in my downstairs sitting room when i can’t use the main hi to in the lounge. The set up in the lounge cost around £1000 about 10 years ago, so i was expecting the kef’s not be to able to match themset up is easy as pie, unbox, connect power and wires, search for kef egg on bluetooth, select and go. What i wasn’t expecting was a breathtaking sound that beats a £1000 set up. They don’t go down that low bass wise so for films you may need to get a subwoofer, and plug in, but for music the bass is reasonable but incredibly punchy and tight. The main delight is the transparency and clarity of the mid and upper end. It’s very bright without being brash or trebly, and provides an insight to the music i have yet to hear on anything i’ve owned. Playing something well recorded and they provide a sumptuous sound stage that is hard to describe without underselling these speakers. Even stodgy 80’s recordings sound vibrant and alive.

These kef speakers sounds great if you compare them with a pair of cheap low end 2. 0 desktop setup, but not at all against their competition at this price point. Yes, the soundstage is very good, with nice mids and the treble offering very crisp detail (but a bit too bright and overemphasized sometimes though. )but the bass is very dissapointing even for this woofer size. It lacks presence, definition and even control, showing an ugly overboost at 140hzi had the opportunity to compare this speakers vs audioengine2, b&w mm-1 and ik iloud micro monitori think the b&w mm-1 are the best with a more controled, detailed and balanced sound. The audioengine2 are cheaper and maybe offers the better value for the price. The ik has a decent overall sound featuring the best bass performance by far, goes very loud and are the best suited for use with games or movies without adding a subwoofer. Definitely, this product offers interesting connectivity options (bluethooth, optical, usb. ) but regarding to audio quality, there are better options for the price.

Built-in software is a disaster. . The sound of the speakers is great, but they are useless to me. After getting home from the retailer and plugging them into my desktop, i found that they turn themselves off after a short period of no sound signal. I use my desktop for meditation sessions of half an hour and use a little script for that – there’s the sound of a bell as the start signal and after 30 minutes there’s supposed to be forest sounds to mark the end of the session. The egg turns itself off after 15 minutes thoughmy desktop is also my alarm clock to get up in the morning with a music playlist i want at that time – also not possible because of this. I wish the seller in the shop had told me about this “feature”, because i would not have bought themif keg would provide a way to bypass the software that turns off the speakers it would be acceptable, but since they don’t, i will have to bring ’em back to the shop. Exe file that made the bypass, so adding two stars to my review now, form 2 to 4 in total :-).

Worse, the cable that connects the two speakers in. Bought to replace aging soundsticks. Sound quality – that everyone raves about – i found to be merely adequate. This thing really needs a sub. Worse, the cable that connects the two speakers in limited in length and that restricts where they can be placed (i have a multiple monitor setup so space is restricted). They are bulkier than the soundsticks. One end is fixed, the other plugs into the left-hand speaker. But perhaps the biggest disappointment was that they just don’t have enough bass and they’re not loud enough. I’m no audiophile but would be willing to pay for quality. But in this case just for music playback on a mac, adding the cost of a sub makes it just too much of a stretch.

Having read the reviews of this product i took a chance and ordered despite having not heard them myself elsewhere. I could not be happier with them. The sound is clear and has actually allowed me to hear extra detail on a number of tracks i have owned for many years. Clear and concise without distortion and a nice level of bass, these are certainly enough for use in a living room as sole speakers without a woofer. Size wise they fit neatly on top of a narrow bookcase without being overbearing, and in fact add a nice retro vibe to the room if they are relatively prominent. Minor niggles to be aware of:running them from bluetooth the quality is dependent on your device being within range, as taking them too far can cause some breakup as the signal varies. The volume control on the remote control appears to be very subtle and in small increments, however those on the base unit work very well. I’d suggest setting the volume on the speaker and the device to the highest setting and then adjusting it from your device.

Not good for wireless pc use (despite being advertised as such). Unfortunately these speakers don’t do what they say on the tin. They are heavily touted as wireless (bluetooth) and for use with laptops (as shown on the kef website). As many of the new laptops have less usb ports now this is a great option – if it worked. However, they regularly turn themselves into standby mode (not at set times either, just when they feel like it, it seems) and often don’t reconnect to the laptop when you turn them back on. So you have to go through the faf of getting them recognised and connected again. Also, if you run itunes whilst they are off, it brings up an audio error warning (as it can’t detect the speakers). If you then turn them on the program crashes, so you have to shut it down, make sure the speakers are on, and then run the program again. I saw another reviewer had the same problem and received a driver update from kef which turned off the auto standby feature and solved most of the problem. Ok, not great to buy an expensive product that doesn’t do what it should but at least it can be easily overcome i hoped.

Great speakers at a fair price. Delightfully clear and warm sound with power beyond their size. Acoustic, classical, folk and some rock sound stunning – every note, beat and tap of the high hat come through with clarity and warmth. Basslines and left hand side of keyboards have surprising weight. They don’t fair so well with dance and heavier rock/metal. Here the speakers get a bit crowded and lose the separation shown in acoustic and vocal tracks. Bass is there but falls short if you want to really feel it. They do have a sub-woofer out though. Plenty of volume too – 10-15% at desk is fine and 25% will full a medium size room for normal listening. For the space i have and music i listen to these are perfect and way ahead of anything else i’ve heard.

This review is mainly for the amazon warehouse deal which i hope not to use again on electrical or complex goods. Unfortunately stopped working after less than 3 months. Sound pretty good – obviously when fed good quality files or feeds. Editthe repairs were covered by the manufacturers 2 year warranty and was fixed for free labour and parts.

On the one hand they sound incredible on usb listening to music at 24bit96khz and they are easily a five star product but i have. I’m another one with mixed feelings about these, on the one hand they sound incredible on usb listening to music at 24bit96khz and they are easily a five star product but i have issues with them cutting out running certain applications together and to be honest they do lack a bit in the lower frequencies. The detail and clarity as well as the stereo separation is probably the best i’ve heard. Its just the issues you have over usb. I guess if you just want to listen to music with these i’d highly recommend them but for me they just have a couple of niggles that have moved them to the bedroom and just using as a great bluetooth speaker, whilst my ruark mr1s are back in front of the computer.
