Gravity One, Motion One, Space One: Porsche & KEF Team For Portable Audio

Porsche Design is furthering its foray into the audio category by collaborating with KEF on three new audio products, including its first Bluetooth speaker and first noise-canceling headphones.

The Gravity One Bluetooth speaker, designed by Studio F. A. Porsche in Zell am See, Austria, has a winged design crafted from a single piece of aluminum with black accents. KEF’s signature “sit-anywhere” Uni-Q technology projects 360-degree sound with back-to-back, twin force-canceling auxiliary bass radiators that are said to cancel out bass distortion. Other features include Bluetooth Qualcomm AptX audio support for CD-quality sound without wires, a dedicated microphone, controls for phone calls, charging for mobile devices, a 3.5mm aux-in for other devices and up to 10 hours of play time.

Porsche’s Motion One in-ear Bluetooth headphones feature brushed-aluminum housings with a titanium finish and high-contrast black soft silicone neckband. A pivoted outer edge allows the headphone cable to be placed over the ear, while an ergonomic shell, angled to fit the ear canal, provides a comfortable fit, the company said. The headphones are water-resistant; a built-in battery offers 10 hours of playtime, and integrated phone call functions are included on the neckband.

The new Space One over-ear active noise-canceling headphones have aluminum shells with a sand-blasted titanium finish. KEF’s specially tuned active noise cancellation eliminates external noise, preserving smooth high tones, lush mid-range and tight bass, Porsche said. They use 40mm drivers together with a large 20mm neodymium magnet and a lightweight copper-clad aluminum wire voice coil. The ear pads are made from breathable, sweat-resistant leatherette over memory foam.

All three products are available at Porsche Design stores, KEF stores, carriers and retailers worldwide. The Gravity One retails for $380. The Motion One is $250, and the Space One is $420.
