Product Description

KEF LS50 Speakers Black Edition celebrating five years since the release of the original KEF LS50, they share the same Uni-Q driver array supplied in sleek black which is set in a complementing matt black cabinet coated with metallic powder. Even the chrome plated terminals are now black to match.

Each pair of speakers also boasts matching black trim rings and comes with its own diamond cut deco plaque and unique laser-etched serial number. The internals mirror the standard multi Award-winning LS50s at the same price point, so we're certain the audio performance will not leave you disappointed.

Curved Front

The curved front panel is made of DMC (Dough Moulding Compound: a polyester resin combined with glass fibre and calcium carbonate, which was selected for its mass and inertness. The rest of the enclosure is made from MDF and is heavily braced and strongly damped to minimise any resonances. The elliptical reflex port used to tune the bass on the LS50 is easily distinct from conventional models owing to its flexibility. This helps to reduce any unwanted midrange distortions.

Cabinet Design

Fashioning a slight casing accomplished in distributing such a roomy sound is the outcome of substantial study and development. In cabinet construction, baffle shaping and port design, LS50 breaks new ground with patent-pending technology. This is all made conceivable by KEF’s direction in contemporary research (counting Finite Element Examination and Computational Fluid). LS50’s unique technology offers by far the cleanest, most accurate studio-grade performance of any mini-monitor.

Uni-Q Drivers

LS50 employs revolutionary technology developed for Blade, KEF’s latest flagship loudspeaker. By means of the actual newest Uni-Q driver, precisely premeditated for this archetype, LS50 emits an enormous listening peak spot and transports a curiously profligate, impeccable sound. And, because LS50 neither adds nor subtracts a single sound, it’s effortlessly natural and accurate too.

Relish in your music by experiencing it correctly and more meticulously to the original recording. Remarkably for its compact design, the LS50 delivers a rich, multi-dimensional soundstage experience, filling the room with beautiful sound.

Press Reviews

  • 'Explicit details of myriad sound effects cut easily throgh the mix. This is a cracking little speaker,sweetly voiced yet highly revealing of source quality, it suprises and delights in equal measure. And it sounds big, defying its compact dimensions. It deserves to be a runaway success for KEF.' (Hi-Fi News Magazine Yearbook 2012)

  • 'The cabinet is not only beautifully finished but is sturdily constructed with constrained layer damping between its walls, internal cross-brace and front baffle. As promised, the LS50 delivers a remarkably big sound with vivid imaging and a tremendous bass weight that belies its compact dimensions. Shut your eyes and you’ll believe you are listening to a far bigger loudspeaker.' (EISA Award 2012-2013)

  • 'Given a little space to breathe and mounted on a pair of solid stands these monitors sound terrific. These speakers deliver deep, agile and powerful lows but unlike most small speakers that deliver big bass, the LS50s don’t over-egg things – everything sounds balanced...These speakers communicate the energy and drive in a piece of music brilliantly.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine)

  • 'We’re impressed by the speaker’s seamless integration too, as we are by the way it sets up a huge stereo image populated by securely focused sounds...and, perhaps most importantly, these speakers are fun to listen to... LS50’s innate transparency means that any flaws in the partnering kit will be apparent. But get it right and you have what is one of the best standmounters below £1000, and easily one of KEF’s most musical efforts in years.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine)

  • 'Simply brilliant. We're impressed by the speaker's seamless integration too, as we are by the way it sets up a huge stereo image populated by securely focused sounds.That's the way to celebrate half a century.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine)

  • 'Sweetly voiced yet highly revealing of source quality, it surprises and delights in equal measure. And boy does it sound big, defying its compact dimensions ...the LS50 did prove capable of shocking me with its ability to let rip... all the while sounding fresh, open and very, very refined' (Hi-Fi News Magazine July 2012)
