There's no shame in buying a device just because it's beautiful. If you're reading this review to find out whether the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini is as good-looking as it appears in the photos, I assure you it is. Now that we've established that,...

One of the best sounding iPod docks in its price range. Compact, elegant design. Dock rotates for horizontal iPod view. Connects to PC via USB so remote can control iTunes

For a $400 iPod speaker dock, the Zeppelin Mini lacks some features that an expensive unit should have-but it looks and sounds amazing.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini impressions

 

Bowers & Wilkins isn't a name that's generally associated with "mere mortals." Sure, you'll find B&W gear within palatial mansions and the

Stellar design ; Great audio quality ; Did we mention that it's gorgeous

Pricey ; Doesn't live up to Klipsch alternatives ; Lame remote

Reviews: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini

 

Whether or not this approach will pay off with Zeppelin Mini is going to depend primarily on two things: a consumer's appreciation for the looks of this new audio system, and its preference for the B&W brand name. Having reviewed hundreds of different...

In sum, though we certainly wouldn't call Zeppelin Mini a product of style over substance, there's little question that its aesthetics are more of a selling point than its audio: Bowers & Wilkins is making some of the most distinctive and...

The Bowers & Wilkins iPod dock has a little brother

Looks great ; Sounds decent ; Includes remote ; Syncs with iTunes ; Line-in

Very very expensive

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini iPod speaker review

 

The premise of the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Mini is a simple one, to offer the same sound and experience as the original Zeppelin, but without the massive design and size - we find out whether it succeeds.

Sound, design, build quality

Just an iPod speaker dock and nothing else, doesn't look like the Zeppelin, remote sluggish

A great iPod speaker dock, that sounds impressive, but a lack of connectivity will hold it back against other offerings on the market

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini review

 

The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini is a decent system, but we don't think it justifies its high asking price in the way that its larger sibling does. If you've got the space, we'd recommend you go for the original Zeppelin instead

Loud ; Compact form factor ; On-board digital-to-analogue converter

Expensive ; Doesn't look or sound as good as the original Zeppelin

Conclusion The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini is one of the better-sounding iPod docks around, but it doesn't quite reach the same sonic heights as the original Zeppelin. With only a £100 price difference between the two, we can't help but feel the...

The Zeppelin Mini has a lot to live up to - Riyad investigates this case of sibling rivalry.

Bowers and Wilkins has proved that it can produce superb iPod sound quality in a smaller chassis, while adding a few new features along the way. The Mini isn’t as aesthetically striking as the original Zeppelin though, and it doesn't excel aurally to...

Will the diminutive Zeppelin Mini rise as high as its big brother? Or will it go down in flames?

A compact speaker dock with a big future thanks to its top-notch sound quality

B&W has done it again. It wasn't long ago that Zeppelin revolutionized the way people listen to the iPods, sweeping away the competition and scooping just about every award going for its incredible sound and sleek looks. And now it's back. Only this time, it's smaller. With Zeppelin Mini, you get everything you love about Zeppelin - advanced acoustic technology, intelligent design, elegant connectivity - in a streamlined, compact sound dock package that's perfect for desktops and bedside tables.
