KEF LS50 Wireless Speakers, add audiophile-grade amplification, sound processing and extensive connectivity to the award-winning LS50's acoustic capabilities.
Expertly delivering a rich, multi-dimensional 'soundstage experience', people loved LS50, creating huge buzz at launch and bringing the professional studio monitor concept into the home. LS50 passive speakers were designed with the belief that everyone deserves to experience quality sound.
After five years, KEF stepped up to the challenge of creating a music system for the digital age. It took LS50 passive speakers to the next level, turning them into a complete, fully active digital studio monitor system for the home.
LS50 Wireless delivers a clear, accurate and transparent sound that creates an intense, rich, and multi-dimensional soundstage experience. Made possible from its small enclosures through expert acoustic design and state-of-the-art technologies.
Cabinet vibration, sound radiation, resonance, and colouration are all eliminated through the seamless integration of the award-winning LS50 speaker's acoustic features. These include the FEA-designed cabinet, Uni-Q driver, constrained layer damping bracing, precision-engineered curved baffle and elliptical flexible sound port.
Get a three-dimensional sound image wherever you sit, for a sweet spot listening experience anywhere in a room using KEF's patented Uni-Q technology. Now in its 11th generation, it places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, allowing LS50 Wireless to create a more detailed, accurate and beautifully integrated three-dimensional sound image.
High and low frequencies should hit your ears at exactly the right time. This perfect time alignment was only an ideal case in theory previously, and perfectly accurate sound could only be experienced within a small 'sweet spot'.
With LS50 Wireless’ advanced time correcting DSP crossover and the unique sound dispersion abilities of Uni-Q, time corrected accurate sound can be achieved in different types of rooms. This is a feat that cannot be reproduced by any other active speaker.
Audiophile-grade sound means audiophile-grade technologies. LS50 Wireless delivers this with an array of sophisticated components built in. Through expert audio engineering, LS50 Wireless includes an end-to-end 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution digital signal path, dedicated DAC per channel, streaming pre-amplifier, and a 230-watt x2 amplification in a bi-amp dual mono configuration. All factory-optimised.
Every piece of information from a high-resolution music source is reproduced fully and accurately through an end-to-end 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution digital signal path. This creates a signal path from the input to the amplifiers that is completely digital and high resolution.
A standard RJ45 termination for the interconnect cable between speakers and a Cat 6 shielded cable improves bandwidth and performance headroom while rejecting noise and electromagnetic compatibility, ensuring LS50 Wireless sound is consistently high-quality.
The beauty of the LS50 Wireless is its effortless combination of simplicity and elegance. It is easy to set up and use, yet offers sophisticated sound fit for audiophiles through inspired audio engineering and the Uni-Q driver.
Plug and Play
An incredible listening experience is easy as plugging in. Simply connect both LS50 Wireless speakers to a power source and connect an audio source to enjoy high-quality sound that music deserves.
With only two speaker enclosures, LS50 Wireless blends easily into the home without the clutter. Available in three sharp colours, Titanium Grey/Red; Gloss Black/Blue; Gloss White/Copper, the right colour combination to match the home is easy to find.
Adjust how the LS50 Wireless sounds using a selectable EQ tuned to compensate for different mounting scenarios, creating more options for placement and positioning. Regardless of placement, Uni-Q technology disperses sound evenly for total listening enjoyment.
Connect a huge range of devices with LS50 Wireless' broad range of connectivity options, including 2.4GHz/5GHz Dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 with the aptX codec, Asynchronous USB Type B, TOSLINK Optical, and RCA Analog. Connect up to 12 devices in total, including a maximum of eight Bluetooth devices and switch between audio inputs conveniently.
Use the touch-sensitive control panel or the remote control to ensure complete control of LS50 Wireless from a different aspect. A dedicated iOS or Android app can allow detailed adjustment to optimise sound for different rooms.

'Best all-in-one system over £1000' (What Hi-Fi Awards 2017)
'That beautifully built and finished enclosure is the same as the passive version… We don’t tend to talk much about ports, but the one here is unusual in that it’s flexible in a bid to reduce distortion.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2017)
'The LS50 Wirelesses sound clean and precise. They dig up so much detail and deliver it in an organised and stable manner. We’re struck by the KEF’s subtlety and their ability to generate strong dynamic shifts without stress.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2017)
'These are small speakers but they manage to fill our medium sized listening room with high volume levels… they render a lovely, expansive soundstage that’s neatly layered and nicely defined. Once set-up properly we think KEF’s engineers have struck a really nice tonal balance. It’s even-handed yet refined enough to make the most of less than optimal recordings or sources. ' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2017)
'These aren’t big speakers so you won’t get really deep floor shaking bass, but they generate low frequencies that are taut, articulate and punchy… The good news continues higher up the range with a transparent and fluid midrange and insightful highs. Vocals are delivered with passion while percussion comes through with bite and composure.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2017)
'The LS50 Wirelesses are rhythmic too, delivering the song’s unmistakable momentum with determination. They never sound too pushy either, allowing the song’s natural flow to come through.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2017)
'Overall, these speakers have the insight to unravel a recording yet never go so far as to tear the music apart. They’re informative but always musical with it. KEF has done a terrific job here. It has taken the award-winning LS50s and made them an even better proposition… Is this what the hi-fi system of the future should look like? We certainly hope so.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2017)
