M a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review
12 March 2013
  • 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. All around or under 1000€. Initially i was set out buying Monitor Audio RX6 because i think it's built very nicely and i have their BR2 standmount which i was pretty happy with.

Over rated

  • 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 AudioClassics purchased the 500's in 2010.. I purchased them just about 2 months ago. Audioclassics response and excuses were just out of the norm.

Superb value

David Annable, Amazon

  • 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. Are these high performance HT speakers that look nice and perform very well for the cost? Absolutely.

Terrific speakers for my small living room

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • 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. Living room is 17 x 13 and these speakers are perfect.

Ridiculously Awesome Speakers

fido one, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • 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?).

Kleine Standboxen mit großem Klang

Michael P., HIFI-REGLER
7 June 2013
  • Summary: Für die Größe wirklich beeindruckender in allen Belangen überzeugender Klang mit meiner Denon Kombi. Vor allem die Räumlichkeit und Abbildung ist wie ich finde hervorzuheben. Bei größeren Räumen würde ich aber eher zu den Q700 greifen. Die Verarbeitung ist auch gut. Wobei die Standfüße besser hätten ausfallen können. Die Beilage der SSC Pucks machen dies aber wieder wett. Wenn man von den Stoffabdeckungen mal absieht stimmt auch die Optik.

Die Suche hat ein Ende :)

Kai-Hendrik Schulte, Amazon

  • Summary: Habe die Lautsprecher vorher Probe gehört und auch nicht hier bei Amazon gekauft, da aber noch keine Rezension vorhanden ist, ich diese Lautsprecher besitze und oft bei Amazon bestelle, bin ich mal der erste, der für dieses Produkt seine Eindrücke schildert. Durchgesetzt haben sich die Q500 im Hörvergleich gegen die Monitor Audio RX6 und die Dali Ikon 6 MKII. Hörgewohnheiten: Ich höre meist Rockmusik (meist Punk Rock, Hardcore Punk usw.

Parfaites

PA75, avis.son-video.com

  • Summary: J'ai acheté ces enceintes pour ma résidence secondaire, je cherchais une enceinte pas trop imposante et de bonne qualité. J'ai été surpris par la qualité du son. Je les préfère à mes Thiels 1.6 sans hésitation. Elles sont droites, claires, descendent bas, les voix sont fidèles, je ne leur vois pas de défaut. Je me demande ce que doit donner la série R! Et pour ce prix... Connectées à un Wadia 151.
