Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless


For a while, whenever a friend or coworker asked about a nice wireless sound system for the home, I would recommend the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air. “It's the one that looks like a giant doobie,” I'd say. And thanks to the product's prominent...

The best high-end wireless speaker gets a revamp, and the results are glorious. Loud, bright, and very natural sound with excellent bass. Connect via AirPlay, Bluetooth, or Spotify Connect. Easy set-up through the app. Arresting design looks like the...

Very expensive at $700. Excellent-sounding wireless speakers can be had for less. Swapping between input modes is indicated by an inscrutable, color-changing LED. It sounds best about a foot away from the wall, so don't put it on a bookshelf

If you want something portable, the Big Jambox, UE Boom, or any of their numerous competitors are still your best bets for a sound system to use at beach, in the kitchen, or in hotel rooms. If you want a powerful wireless speaker that offers high...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless


With a stunning, iconic design and a price to match, Bowers & Wilkins' Zeppelin Wireless speaker delivers superb streaming audio via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Top-notch audio performance with deep, rich bass response and crystal clear, bright highs. Streams wirelessly via AirPlay, Bluetooth, or Spotify Connect

Digital signal processing may irk purists. Very expensive. Light on accessories

Most wireless speaker manufacturers have abandoned Apple's AirPlay functionality in favor of Bluetooth's improved audio performance (and more reliable streaming). But why choose between the two? For $699.99, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review: The Brits have done it again


It's one of the best single-cabinet stereo speakers in the world, and you no longer need to be an Apple user to enjoy it.

Exceptional audio reproduction ; Bluetooth with AptX support ; Spotify Connect support ; Exquisite industrial design

Can no longer be used as a USB audio device ; No Android setup app ; No longer charges or syncs iOS devices

You'll be hard pressed to find a better AirPlay speaker than the latest Zeppelin Air. And now there's Bluetooth support, too!

Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless speaker


In an age of wireless speakers dominated by singing soda cans and the occasional light show, the Zeppelin Wireless from British audio firm Bowers & Wilkins keeps the focus refreshingly on the task at hand. The latest in the Zeppelin line takes what was...

But then again, we're talking about a wireless speaker here. Once it is paired with a playing device, we found the Bluetooth connection excellent within 30 m (100 ft) with barely any skipping. Reconnection was automatic and efficient, and the Wireless...

Why are soundbars and wireless speakers so popular these days? Sure it's about simplicity, but it's also about convenience. Why do people listen to music from the speaker in their phone? Because it's at their's a single button push....

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless Review


With its unique shape and powerful sound, the Zeppelin Air from Bowers & Wilkins quickly became a best-selling iPod dock. Nearly eight years later, Bowers has retooled their popular Zeppelin speaker to be more in line with the connected home of 2015....

Superb balanced but powerful audio experience, support for AirPlay, Spotify Connect and Bluetooth, iconic design continues to be an eye-catcher

It took us several tries to get Wi-Fi properly set up for AirPlay and Spotify Connect

The original Zeppelin is an iconic speaker and the latest version is sure to follow in its footsteps. The new Zeppelin not only looks great, but sounds absolutely brilliant. This is one of the best wireless speaker experiences you can find for under a...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review: The Brits have done it again


You'll find a lot of changes in this, the third generation of full-sized Zeppelin speakers, and one thing that hasn't: This speaker delivers an impeccable audio performance.

Exceptional audio reproduction ; Bluetooth with AptX support ; Spotify Connect support ; Exquisite industrial design

Can no longer be used as a USB audio device ; No longer charges or syncs iOS devices

$700 is a lot of dough to drop on a speaker, especially since we haven’t been able to review the just-about-to-ship $500 Sonos Play:5. But if you’re an avid Apple/AirPlay household and can swing the budget, you won’t be disappointed with the latest...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review: Quality audio made easy


The Zeppelin is back and it is better in every single way

Supports open standard wireless technologies ; Refined design and excellent construction ; Five speakers producing 150 watts

Expensive ; Android Bowers & Wilkins Control app not yet available

Anyone buying the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless will relish both its simplicity and its skillful playback of music. Better sound can be milked from more sophisticated systems, though they bring wires and inconvenience into the picture. The...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review: Big, bold and Bluetooth at last - Pocket-lint


If you are looking to add a premium wireless speaker into your life, the 2015 B&W Zeppelin is the one you seek. Deep, rolling bass coupled with precise

Iconic design but with new, sleek lines; Spotify Connect and Bluetooth aptX support; AirPlay lossless through a dedicated control app; superb bass response from a reasonably small cabinet; five drive units to give all round audio experience

As weighty physically as it is in bass; pricey for its category (but it sits proudly at the top-end)

Bowers & Wilkins' Zeppelin range over the years has always impressed where it most matters – with the music playback performance. The British company is renowned for putting aside fancy gimmicks and focusing on the audio experience foremost.
