KEF April Specials!  KEF Direct

The Q500 is KEF's modest sized floorstanding loudspeaker in the Q Series family of home audio speakers. Q500 features a specially-voiced 5.25" aluminum Uni-Q driver and 1" vented aluminium dome tweeter. First you'll notice the striking clarity of the vocals and the fluidly articulate mid range response. Then the massive bass extension and flawless imaging will let you discover (or re-discover) the pure joy of this great sounding speaker!

A Class Above
At its heart of the Q Series popularity is the specially designed Uni-Q driver array. Derived from the Concept Blade project, featuring a larger high performance vented tweeter mounted at the acoustic center of a specially engineered metal cone LF/MF driver, Q500 combines lavishly extended bandwidth with effortless dynamics, imperceptible distortion and outstanding acoustic clarity.

Uni-Q Driver Array
Thanks to the latest computer modelling techniques, years of painstaking development and a dash of design genius, this iteration of the Uni-Q concept packs a formidable complement of design innovations. Based on the state-of-the-art HF driver developed for Concept Blade, Q Series boasts a much larger dome tweeter for increased sensitivity and distortion-free power handling. It plays as loud as it plays true.

Bring On The Bass
Featuring state-of-the-art aluminium cone technology just like the Uni-Q array, the Q Series' advanced bass driver is a tour de force in its own right. A die-cast aluminium chassis rigidly locates the high efficiency vented magnet assembly to prevent unwanted resonance, and the large voice coil ensures impressive power handling. Its musicality is impeccable: seductively tuneful and well controlled, and complemented by dedicated front-firing auxiliary bass radiators (ABRs).

I bought the speakers from the KEF direct website. The speakers arrived in a timely fashion, were in great condition, and have so far worked as advertised. I plan on purchasing the matching sub-woofer soon. (Posted on 4/5/2017)
Really great sound, better deal Review by David L

I didnt have a chance to listen in person but I am thoroughly impressed and satisfied with the sound. I returned my monitor audio speakers. The q500s were perfect and not too small for my living area which is a medium sized room. I also found the monitor audios to be harsh on axis and movie dialogue would hurt my ears sometimes. The KEF q500s have no such problems. Also no complaints about the build quality, everything arrived really fast (Posted on 3/9/2017)

I bought a pair of these when KEF Direct had them at 36% percent off. One of the best purchase decisions I've ever made. My main use is for watching movies, but I also like to entertain company and use them to play music during parties. The sound quality is amazing when listening to music or anything that is stereo sourced. When watching movies the clarity of voices is wonderful. I would definitely buy these again if given the chance and highly recommend them to anyone looking for great sounding speakers that won't break the bank. (Posted on 3/5/2017)

Very glad I did my homework and found these instead of just walking into a brick and mortar store and picking out something off the shelf. Build, design and sound is nothing but superb. Very happy with my sound system and so are my PS4 Pro and Xbox One S. Perfect compliment to my 7.2 system! (Posted on 2/25/2017)

These are very nice. I have them in the front on a 7.1 system: Kef Q series speakers, SVS sub, Onkyo NX R 474 multi channel receiver. There is a definite break in period with the Q500 speakers (100 hours), but after the break in, I tuned my system for about 3 days, and when I got it setup right, the Kef Q500 series speakers are among the best that I have ever own, and have owned ultra high products in the past. I bought a pair of q700s as well. The Q700 speakers obviously have a lower end response than the Q500 speakers, but I believe the Q500 have better midrange. Most people would buy the Q700 over the Q500 because the Q700 are fuller and easier to setup. Both are great products. (Posted on 2/9/2017)
Lived up to the hype Review by PJ

I had done a bit of research on these speakers and most reviews raved about the detail and stereo imaging. Happy to say these speakers did not disappoint. I'm hearing things on recordings that I've never noticed before.
The bass response is not overpowering, but I'm using the speakers temporarily in a large living room. For the type of music I'm listening to now they do very well.

Even though they were on back order when I ordered them during Christmas time, they came before the New Year. I have an older Q15.2 pair, and compare to them, I noticed more details in the low frequencies. Of course, I have not spent a lot time listening and can not provide a comprehensive review. The overall purchase was smooth. (Posted on 1/4/2017)

I just purchased a pair of these on special along with a Q400b Sub for my home office/reading room, to say I am impressed is an understatement! The sound fills the room and I now hear music rather than just listen. I am sure that the upper range of KEF products would blow these away, but for me and for the price I am extremely please with my purchases. I will certainly be looking at more KEF in the future.

Great speakers Review by Robert

I bought these along with a pair of Q300's to use as surround speakers in a 7.1 system. However, prior to putting them in the 7.1 system I hooked them up in a bedroom system for a bit of break in listening to 2-channel music. These are excellent sounding speakers on their own; accurate with tight bass and a an overall well balanced sound. The only reason I give them 4 starts and not 5 is that I own a pair of R900s and an R600C up front in my 7.1 system. The R900s are absolutely fantastic but I will say that the Q500 hold their own and I would highly recommend these speakers. (Posted on 11/1/2016)

Incredible Value Review by Hawkeye

I had Kef Q60's for nearly 20 years, and was so pleased with them, I wanted to stay with Kef when I upgraded. A few weeks ago, I bought a pair of Q500's to use in stereo as opposed to surround. I listen to mostly classical, and the Q500's are truly amazing for the price. I use a sub for a little extra punch in orchestral music, but it isn't really needed for chamber music. The Q500's play with amazing clarity, and the sound stage is extremely well defined and seems almost 3 dimensional. For the price, these speakers are spectacular. (Posted on 2/26/2016)

the absolute sound - Review
"... From the outset, the Q500’s quality is evident—and it befits a product much more costly than its modest price. From the moment one opens the packing cartons, peruses the assembly instructions, and finally, connects the loudspeakers to the system, virtually every detail is well thought-out and every practical nuance addressed."
