Award-winning system, made better
Famed for their striking design, balanced sound and complete connectivity, the original KEF LS50 Wireless speakers swept the board. Now featuring new MAT technology for superior sound, a brand-new wireless platform and new KEF Connect app, the LS50 Wireless II is more impressive than ever.
The wireless speakers that put sound first
Based on the revolutionary LS50 Meta, these KEF wireless speakers use MAT (Metamaterial Absorption Technology) for lower distortion and a much purer, more natural sound. KEF’s famous Uni-Q drivers produce room-filling sound, free from the usual ‘sweet spot’. Powering all this is a mighty amplifier system that uses a combination of digital and analogue amplification to produce a total output of 380 watts per speaker.
Truly wireless option
There are many wireless stereo speakers on the market, but ‘wireless’ doesn’t always mean what you might think. Just like its competitors, the LS50 Wireless II streams music wirelessly. It also goes one stage further, though, in featuring a wireless connection between the speakers themselves – no umbilical cord required. If you want to improve file resolution from 96 kHz/24 bit to 192 kHz/24 bit, then simply use the supplied interspeaker connection cable.
Streaming services and Internet Radio
Download the KEF Connect app (available for Android and Apple iOS) and enjoy easy access to all your favourite streaming services, Internet Radio and podcasts. Compatible with Spotify Connect (Premium account required), TIDAL, Amazon Music, Qobuz, Deezer and more, the app lets you access a near-limitless stream of music. The app also makes it easy to access your favourite Internet Radio stations and podcasts.
AirPlay 2, Chromecast and UPnP – Wireless freedom
Connect to your network via wi-fi or Ethernet and stream your music, your way. Compatible with AirPlay 2 and Chromecast, the player suits most Apple and Android multi-room speaker systems. If you prefer to stream from your own music storage, UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play) compatibility means it collaborates with a wide range of third party apps for effortless music network streaming.
Made for High Resolution music – including support for MQA and ROON
As well as offering the dynamic range to make the most of Hi-Res music, the LS50 Wireless II also supports many associated formats. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) – as used by TIDAL Masters – is compatible. ROON Endpoint status means it’s compatible with the award-winning music player – including Hi-Res files.
Ultimate Bluetooth speaker
For a quick and easy connection, the LS50 Wireless II speakers are also compatible with Bluetooth. The high quality Bluetooth 4.2 connection is perfect for quick and easy pairing with family and friend’s smartphones – making it an ideal way to share music.
Or, cable it up
Thanks to its HDMI, optical and coaxial digital, plus analogue 3.5mm inputs you can also connect up other sources, such as your TV, games console, CD player or turntable (with built-in pre-amp).
Equally as impressive as the sound and connectivity, the LS50 Wireless II’s style is hard to beat. The smooth, clean design is striking yet still easy on the eye. Choose between Carbon Black, Mineral White, Titanium Grey or Crimson Red, for the style that best suits you.
Enjoy a premium listening experience, in style, with the KEF LS50 Wireless II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Sound, Great Design, Minimal floor space I brought these a month ago. I play mainly Classical, Vocal Jazz and Folk. These have a wide stage with incredible details. I am hearing aspects of the music I have not heard before placed in the stage sound as with clarity and depth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Page94 from Exceptional small speakers These speakers manage the difficult trick of becoming invisible acoustically. With good recordings music comes from its own space, not a couple of modest speakers in my living room. They sound good at low volumes but can go very loud without the slightest hint of effort. Many well regarded speakers have gaps and subtle exaggerations in their frequency response that can sound very pleasant. These KEF speakers don’t seem to have of these faults/character. I listen to lots of acoustic recordings and these sound like the instruments being played, which is a rare ability and not a given even at this price. They don’t get five stars however because the quality of engineering in the speakers doesn’t extend to the app needed for streaming. When switching on the speakers immediately switch on from standby and start to play in a second or two. After a few more seconds they stop playing and the app opens a red bar asking me to select the speakers in settings. They are already selected and show as such. After a further variable wait they start to play again. I’ve learned that my intervention makes no difference, so I just wait. This can happen a couple of times before they settle down. Reinstalling the app makes no difference and it happens whether I use my phone or iPad. At the moment the app has BBC radio stations available. These are occasionally interrupted by messages from the BBC that they will soon not be available. It would be helpful to have heard from KEF whether they will add BBC Sounds to their app or not. I have taken up the trial subscription to Tidal and will continue with it. A curiosity is that artists and albums added when I log in with my iPhone don’t show when I use my iPad, and vice versa. I only have one account. I don’t know if this is Tidal’s system or another KEF hiccup. I have learned to be patient with streaming, not least because there is no point in trying to contact these companies. I guess the lists will discover each other one day. These speakers have direct inputs, so if the streaming becomes unusable, which I have experienced with another brand, I can always plug in a CD transport! Streaming via Apple Airplay works fairly well, but with a noticeable drop in quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dougaldog from LS50 W II's do what it says on the tin. I bought these about six weeks ago, and initially held back with review as experiencing some buffering problems initially when used wirelessly for the data streaming (rare but noticeable quiet periods when streaming from Tidal). I pinned this down to an App that had been downloading blog updates in background (I think, so far, so good). Soooo, wired all together with some ethernet cable, and all have performed immaculately since. So much so that I decided to add on a KC62 subwoofer, which takes a great pair of speakers to a superb level of listening, for me at least :-) I would certainly recommend these as a great start into 'audiophilia', and for me, likely the only one. Good enough to hear music like I've never heard before, even the 60's, 70' & 80's classics come to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1moreKevster from Fantastic HiFi Sound With Minimum Fuss Fantastic service and advice from Middlesbrough store. Had a thorough instore demo of KEF wireless 2 speakers and now having bought them, can say with confidence, they sound and look fanrtastic. Also bought an Audiolab 6000 CD transport from their store too, which sounded phenomenal through these speakers using coaxial cable. Buy them you won't be disappointed!!! Kudos to Middlesbrough Richer Sounds store for their pricing and exemplary service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Fab Speakers I got these sent to me for a trial period as the model was not available to test in my local store. The speakers arrived the next day. They are incredible I'm keeping them. As good as the reviews say!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sircho from Pure Clarity Serious step up coming from A5+'s. The amount of power these actives can put out is far past what you'd think. My playlists have now changed dramatically, in search of songs and music that can flex the ability of these speakers to deliver in raw instruments and vocals. That being said, I think I'm now a Level 1 Audiophile and my neighbors hate me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gogs from Great sound Bought a couple weeks ago not managed to have a decent listen of it yet but first impressions are great. Spotify has gone silent a couple times maybe signal dropping but should iron out once I have the WiFi set up correctly for the speakers
