Top ImageTop Image

The word Hi-Fi is an abbreviation of the words "High" and "Fidelity" and is a term used today to describe the quality of the product in audio, video and many other areas. This phrase is known for guaranteeing a certain quality when purchasing a product.

As Hifilife, today we will examine one of the products that best fits this concept, which forms the basis of our brand. Our focus today is the active bluetooth speaker, the LS 50 Wireless model of the KEF brand.

Which country's brand is KEF?

KEF is one of the most important brands in the loudspeaker world and is the UK's leading acoustics and audio technologies company. Its name is an abbreviation of the words "Kent Engineering & Faundry". Founded by Raymond Cooke in Kent, England, KEF has announced its quality to the whole world and has been operating under the umbrella of GP Acoustics since 2018.

One of the most important features that distinguishes KEF from other brands is the patented technologies they have developed. KEF aimed to create its own technologies rather than being a follower of industry standards. That's why KEF speakers use unique technologies that deliver exceptional sound performance and realism.

KEF offers music lovers a unique experience by focusing on high fidelity (hi-fi) principles and innovation. Its products have features that convey fine details in the most accurate way and make the listeners feel the music fully.

In this article, we talked about KEF's important position in the loudspeaker world and its innovative approach.

KEF LS50 Wireless Speaker Review

The KEF LS50 Wireless hi-fi speaker comes in a standard brown box due to its size. Standard information such as serial information, model, product code are included on the box.

The box can be a little difficult to transport because the speakers are quite heavy. Each speaker weighs 7.2 kg. This weight indicates that the speaker is solid and powerful.

KEF LS50 Wireless: Stylish Design and Ease of Use

The KEF LS50 Wireless is a preferred and appreciated hifi speaker with its unique design. Being shelving (Shelf Spk), it provides a tactile experience with a solid and premium feel. The stylish design concept stands out. While most other speakers offer decent audio performance, it just can't get rid of the standard stereo speaker image standing next to computers. However, the KEF LS50 Wireless wireless speaker proves to be a speaker in terms of design.

The loudspeaker, which has Bright White, Dark Titanium and Glossy Black color options, meets its users with the standard production, as well as a special series, Nocturne.

The KEF LS50 Wireless is an active speaker, meaning it has a built-in amplifier so it can operate on its own.

The speaker works as "Master/Slave". When the speakers are connected together, one (Master) provides audio output and also performs management and operations, while the other (Slave) outputs audio only.

KEF LS50 Wireless Audiophile Speaker Model

The KEF LS50 Wireless has impressive sound performance for any audiophile or non-audiophile ear. The speaker fascinates you step by step with its natural sound character and makes you feel as if you are performing a live performance in front of me. This effect is achieved by the combination of proprietary technologies found in the speaker. First, it is found in the Uni-Q speaker, KEF's patented driver technology. We will cover the details in the features section. In addition, other factors such as DAC and DSP (Digital Signal Processing), which offer 192kHz/24bit high resolution sound, also increase the sound quality to higher levels.

One of the best things about the KEF hifi speaker is that even when the volume is increased, there is no distortion. In addition, the speaker has 200 Watts of audio output power, which means it delivers sound with the power and volume suitable for most rooms.

Realistic Sound Experience with Uni-Q Technology

KEF's patented and unique Uni-Q technology is one of the most important factors that brings the sound quality of the speaker to the top. Traditional speaker construction uses separate components, such as a woofer that produces low frequencies (bass) and a tweeter that produces high frequencies (treble).

However, the human ear perceives sounds as a whole and sounds reach our ears individually. At this point of reality, the sounds coming from different sources can reduce the feeling of naturalness and reality.

KEF's Uni-Q technology positions the tweeter and woofer on the same plane to transmit sounds through a single structure. In this way, the music or sounds you listen to with the KEF LS50 Wireless speaker provide an extraordinary experience in terms of realism and naturalness. You get an audio performance and commitment to the source of sounds that other speaker brands can't deliver.
