Product Description

KEF LS50 speakers are one of the best contemporary loudspeakers we've ever heard and have won virtually every award possible. The innovative speakers are derived from the legendary LS3/5a. A professional studio monitor commemorating the brand's 50th anniversary, they are designed to bring recording studio quality sound into your home.

It inherits some of its patented acoustic designs and state-of-art technologies from the flagship KEF Blade speakers. Thanks to their advanced design, and with a nod to their rich heritage, the LS50 provide the ultimate studio experience even in the smallest of spaces.

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 practices such as 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)

    Had these for a few days now and they are starting to sound amazing. Playing vinyl, CD's and streaming they are getting fuller and more detailed by the day. I've got speakers that cost 10 times the price of these on another system and I must say I enjoy these more!
    They really do give a huge soundstage and sound much bigger than they really are.
    I really think you would have to spend thousands to beat these in the right conditions (good amp with reasonable power and a medium size room). Highly recomended!

    Just got mine today, they're absolutely beautiful, so well made and finished, this is before I even heard them!

    Sound glorious, so smooth and tight, I use Chord Epic.

    Very impressed with the KEF LS50. Very solidly built, and clearly a lot of attention has gone into the new Uni-Q drivers, as they sound incredibly accurate.

    Also listened to the R100 when trying the LS50 which, although no slouch, is eclipsed by the accuracy and soundstage of the LS50. The bass performance in particular is incredible for a speaker of its size.

    Personally, think the LS50 would still be a five star product at double the price. A great product from a great british manufacturer. 10/10!
