The KEF LS60 Gets Yet Another Coat of Paint with the New Carbon Black Finish

The KEF LS60 Wireless Speakers are now available in five colors: mineral white, royal blue, titanium grey, British racing green, and carbon black.

Is there an innovation problem in high-end audio right now? We have covered a few hundred new product introductions so far this year and whilst there is certainly no shortage of things to write about — manufacturers seem to be extending the life of existing products with new finishes across multiple categories. There is nothing wrong with making existing products more accessible to a wider range of potential customers but it makes us wonder if brands are struggling to move certain products and the solution is to add more colors?

Examples in 2023 include the Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection, Marantz Cinema 40/50 AVR add Silver/Gold Finish Option, Focal Sopra No2 New Finish, and the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 4 Headphones Get New Coat of Paint.

We are not being critical of the those products and companies, but the number of new colors for existing products seems to be increasing. KEF jumped into this trend with the KEF KC62 Subwoofer and the KEF LSX II Wireless Loudspeakers.

The latest example from KEF is their announcement of a new Carbon Black finish option for its already popular LS60 Wireless Floorstanding speakers

What makes this interesting is that just a few months ago (July 2023), KEF added a 4th color in British Racing Green (in partnership with Lotus)

Of course,  the LS60s are also currently available in their initial 2022 release colors of mineral white, royal blue, and titanium grey.

Tip: All the speakers are the same internally, with the same speaker and feature set, the only difference is the color selection (at least so far).

KEF LS60 Recap

The LS60 Wireless consists of two thin-profile floorstanding powered speakers. There is no need to connect the speakers to an additional amplifier, stereo, or home theater receiver.

The primary speaker includes wireless and physical source connectivity. The audio signals needed for the secondary speaker are transferred from the primary speaker via an Ethernet connection.
