Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini Review


The Bowers & Wilkins name is practically synonymous with high-end sound. Since the original B&W 801 first appeared in 1979, the English company has enjoyed a great deal of success by producing some of the worlds finest and most stylish speakers found...

Smart, stylish aesthetic ; Digital USB input provides cleaner sound ; Works with all iPod and iPhone devices ; Unique, rotating dock arm

Very aggressive high frequencies ; No tone control ; Poor off-axis response ; Limited remote functions ; High price for an iPod dock

The Zeppelin Mini looks less outlandish than its Hindenburg-sized older brother, but loses some of its larger-than-life performance in the shrinking process.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini


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

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

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...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini


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 Zeppelin Mini


The Mini is a compact speaker dock with a big future, and top-notch sound quality - we just hope software updates are made available sooner rather than later

Excellent sound quality across the board; smaller design perfect for smaller rooms; easy to use; easy to update software

Struggles to fill large rooms; has some software bugs that need ironing out
