Summary: My husband is a retired audio engineer and always speaks highly of KEF speakers. I wanted the Q700s but could not afford them. I went with the Q500s and am not disappointed. They are the front speakers in a surround system that we use for both music and television.
Summary: Ask 100 different audio home theater buffs about a product and likely, you'll get 100 different answers. In the end, what matters is how the product sounds to you vs other products at a similar price point. Are these the best speakers money can buy? No.
Summary: The Q500s are some of the best speakers for the money. I'd disregard the other reviewer that says at high volume there is a rumbling (that's the amp and/or wiring, not the speaker), or another review that says it doesn't live up to the hype (did you audition these speakers before you bought them?).
Summary: So I was searching for a floostanding speaker and auditioned in various stores at least the following: Monitor Audio BX5, RX6. Dali Zensor 5/7, Icon6 mk2, Rega rs3, Epos epic?, some Dynaudio, some Elac, some cheap Boston Acoustics, some System Audio and some Amphion and finally Kef Q500.
Summary: This product is over rated to the core.. I had a hard time with the seller (AudioClassics) here on Amazon.. It was stated as new and it was a demo with some imperfect-ed veneer issues I was never told about it until I contacted KEF Kef's Rep that told me they were classified as a demo and...

excellent sound with plenty of base for a full sound

Summary: Many of the expert reviews of these speakers mention the lack of base for the smaller floor standers of the range, which left me a little concerned about the purchase; however this was to quite quickly be proven to be unfounded.
Summary: For many months now I’ve been following press reviews on the Kef Q500’s and of course they’re all favourable, so I decided to try them for myself. I had been using Cambridge S70’s coupled to my C/A Azur 651 amplifier and CD player but the speakers weren’t quite ‘there’ for me.
Summary: Klare und nicht nervende Höhen, warme, nicht abgeschnürte Mitten und gemessen an der Größe der Tieftöner wirklich tolle Bässe. Ohne Frontbezug auch optisch ein echter Hingucker. In der Preisklasse ein echter Tip!
