”Given a little space to breathe and mounted on a pair of solid stands these monitors sound terrific.” – ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.
Made for KEF’s 50th anniversary, the LS50’s celebrate all that’s best about the speaker brand and have already become something of a legend in their class. Combining KEF’s famous Uni-Q speaker system with a superbly rigid cabinet, delivers sound that’s both incredibly accurate and fun to listen to.Super-precise, monitor sound
KEF’s history includes making some of the most precise-sounding monitor speakers. Used in recording studios around the world, KEF-branded speakers and other brands using KEF drive units are behind so many classic mixes. The LS50 picks up on this heritage and runs with it. The Uni-Q driver array places the tweeter within the middle of the woofer. This means a single point source, helping to make it sound more cohesive. The magnesium/ aluminium woofer is light and rigid – meaning it’s fast to respond and entirely faithful to the music playing.Musical with it
Although some monitor speakers can sound clinical to listen to, this is not the case with the KEF LS50. The super-rigid cabinet features a curved compound front baffle. Combined with the tweeter’s ‘tangerine’ wave-guide, this helps spread the sound far out into your room – making listening to these speakers an enveloping experience.Powerful bass for such a compact speaker
Although small, the LS50s pack quite a punch. With its Z-Flex surround, the woofer moves freely within a long throw. This means move air being moved and deeper, more controlled bass. The specially designed, flexible elliptical rear bass port tunes the bass; avoiding the soft, tuneless ‘thud’ sounds that can afflict this type of speaker. In short, what the LS50 delivers is clean, tight bass that simply sounds more like the instrument it’s recreating.Timeless design
Just as enduring as the sound, the LS50’s design has similar long-lasting appeal. The smooth, clean design is easy on the eye while avoiding being bland. Choose between Black Edition, Gloss Black with Rose Gold drivers or Gloss White with Blue drivers, for the best match with your room.
