    Stunning speakers, easy connectivity. Would have liked hard copy of manual, instead had to go online and download.
    Sound is exceptional. Volume adjustment via bt is a bit laggy. Other reviews have mention lack of depth on the bass. Certainly I think a sub would add more bass depth, but it does depend on the bass output on the recording played. Just a matter of personal taste. For pure sound quality I have never heard better. All in all I am delighted with my purchase.

    I tried to get a demo of these speakers to no avail in Scotland. In the end I bought them from KEF through amazon, thinking I could send back if I did not like.

    My first feeling was dissapointnent in the bass. It is there of course, but there is no weight at all. I think the spec says 45hz +-3db, but it did not feel solid or defined. The rest of the range was very, very crisp and clear. I did not find the treble harsh as some have.

    I tried moving speakers around and tweaking the dsp as far as possible through the app, but the difference to the bass was marginal. I know you cannot expect too much bass from small speakers, but considering there hype I expected a lot better.

    Music with no great bass such as accepella or guitar vocals sounded much better.

    I must say I don’t consider myself a bass head, but maybe I am…

    I wired up my studio subwoofer (yamaha hs8s), and it made all the difference. After a week of varied listening on qobuz, I have decided to keep them. Apart from the weak bass they are beautiful sounding and have opened sonic doors into many performances I have loved for years.

    I know have to find a decent sub that will do them justice.

    With support for Hi-Res Audio, an expansive soundstage, and excellent detail and dexterity, audio quality is nothing short of fantastic. Add to this a vastly improved Kef Connect app, the ability to adjust the EQ settings, and blissfully easy setup, and you have yourself a pair of stereo speakers that can really do no wrong.

    That balanced sound may not appeal to bass-heads, and the vast array of inputs may be lost on those who are simply looking for a Bluetooth speaker for background music. However, for analytical listening, boosting your TV’s weak built-in speakers, or blasting your favourite vinyls on your turntable, the LS50 Wireless II are a dream. I’m using these in conjunction with a £260 Q Acoustics 3060 subwoofer and it’s not even turned up past 30%.

    Aside from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, you can also choose from a number of wired configurations. These include an HDMI eARC socket for your TV, an Ethernet port, coaxial and optical inputs, a subwoofer output, and 3.5mm AUX inputs. I connected my 2020 MacBook Pro using an Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt external DAC using the 3.5mm AUX connection.

    Whatever audio source you’re using, you can opt to connect the speakers via the supplied cable, which gives you 24-bit/192kHz resolution audio, as opposed to the 24-bit/96kHz afforded by the wireless setup. I chose to use the supplied ethernet cable option to make the most of the high resolution audio.

    The LS50 Wireless II sound incredibly well balanced, displaying great stereo separation and a wide enough soundstage to truly fill any room with detailed, clarified audio.

    For:

    – You’re looking for uncompromised, audiophile sound
    With support for Hi-Res Audio, customizable EQ settings, and a gorgeous, expansive sound, the KEF LS50 Wireless II are a fantastic choice for any audiophile.

    – You use lots of audio sources
    If you like to switch between your TV, laptop, smartphone, turntable, and CD player regularly, these speakers make connectivity easy.

    – You hate cables
    Wireless speakers sometimes get a bad rap in terms of audio fidelity, but the KEF LS50 Wireless II make no compromises when it comes to wireless sound.

    Against:

    – You’re on a strict budget
    There’s no getting away from the fact that the KEF LS50 Wireless II are pricey – throw in the dedicated stands (£400), and they’ll be making a fair dent in your wallet.

    – You prefer very bassy sound
    These speakers are well balanced – so if you like to go overboard with your bass frequencies, then they probably aren’t for you. I’m using the LS50’s in conjunction with a Q Acoustics 3060s under desk subwoofer just to give some extra oomph.

    – You’re looking for smart features
    There’s no onboard voice assistant here, and you won’t be able to control your smart home devices with these speakers

    In summary, the LS50 Wireless II’s are the best wireless speaker option you can buy today, even if you connect them by the old skool wired option, as I do!

    The best product i’ve bought!… does everything i need. Sound quality is amazing! crystal clear. It can take a kef sub, but in my opinion it doesn’t need it. unless you like teeth rattling bass. However the speakers are only as good as the music source. i was using spotify but now use Tidal (which was recommended by a friend). Many of the tracks are master copies, so no compressed sound. It’s more expensive, but you get what you pay for and when you’re spending this much on speakers seem pointless using inferior quality source material..in my opinion.. and makes a huge different i suggest trying two songs from different platforms, it’s like night and day… i’m over the moon with the product!…got it connect to my wifi. The support is second to none also. I had a couple of connectivity challenges when i first setup, and the support team were fantastic, they were knowledgable and patient. i can’t fault the product or the company. And the best thing over all, is the amps built in, so if I want to move them to another room (or house) I can…they are soooo good, and look very stylish. I also recommend a good set of speaker stands, helps with the sound distribution and bass. You won’t regret buying them.

    I’m blown away by these. Sound is amazing, no idea why anyone has complained about lack of bass but maybe I’ll find out when I get a subwoofer.

    Even songs I don’t particularly like on albums I listen to because I can hear so much more depth to them.
