Rarely the case in such a compact design

The LS50 monitor delivers a rich, multi-dimensional 'soundstage experience' that is out of all proportion to its size.

SOUND

The Ultimate Studio Experience

Say goodbye to the single sweet spot. With LS50 Wireless you feel the sound in every corner of the room; natural, big and immersive sound like no other. The patented Uni-Q drive array combines with highly advanced electronics to deliver full high-resolution music from a two-box system that even die-hard reviewers are calling ‘the future of Hi-Fi’.

An innovative concept inspired by the legendary LS3/5a, the LS50 mini monitor speaker is designed to bring a professional studio monitor concept into the home.

Rarely the case in such a compact design, the LS50 monitor delivers a rich, multi-dimensional 'soundstage experience’ that is out of all proportion to its size. Patent-pending acoustic designs, together with state-of-the-art technologies from KEF’s latest flagship Blade loudspeaker, provide the ultimate studio experience – even in the smallest of spaces.

CONNECTIVITY

Uni-Q®

Power up, connect the two speakers with a single ethernet cable and access a world of music using your choice of dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB, Optical or RCA Analog.

LS50 employs revolutionary technology developed for Blade, KEF's latest flagship loudspeaker. Using the very latest Uni-Q driver, specifically designed for this model, LS50 radiates an extremely large listening sweet spot and delivers a remarkably fast, clean sound. And, because LS50 neither adds nor subtracts a single sound, it's effortlessly natural and accurate too.

reviewer choice award - soundstage hifi

"The LS50 is nothing short of a masterpiece of a minimonitor, priced so that anyone serious about audio can buy a pair -- and probably should, if only to know how great a small speaker can be. Time hasn’t been as much on my side as it’s been on KEF's -- the LS50 is one of their best speakers yet, and one of their best values; it’s proof that, as it ages, this company seems to get better and better." — 2013
 

 

test winner - what hi-fi?

"The KEF LS50s have set a ridiculously high benchmark and it is going to take a superhuman effort to top them."— 2013
