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!

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


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 and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review


Soaring sound or crashing Hindenburg?

Detailed mid-range ; Powerful, controlled bass ; Improved iconic design ; More open system

Still kinda pricey ; Inevitably limited stereo effect ; Slightly awkward setup

The new Zeppelin Wireless is a beautiful-looking and beautiful-sounding network music player, bringing back the classic design with an even more powerful, yet detailed, aural experience.

B&W Zeppelin Wireless review


B&W's iconic wireless speaker is back and sounding better than ever...

Large spread of sound Precise soundstage Expressive mids Stays composed at higher volumes Seamless control and design Good functionality

No Android app

The Zeppelin Wireless keeps the range’s legacy alive, combining a highly accomplished sound with greater functionality and an even more seamless design. It’s not often a product has such timelessness, let alone something as prolific and short-lived as...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless dishes out premium sound at a premium price


The Hindenburg tragically burned and crashed in 1937, accelerating the demise of zeppelin airships. Some 75 years later, Bowers & Wilkins' Zeppelin Air wireless speaker took off in the marketplace and now returns in an upgraded and completely...

We just received a review sample and will post our full review in the coming weeks. But for now I can say that while $700 is a lot to pay for a single wireless speaker, the new Zeppelin Wireless definitely sounds better than the Zeppelin Air and the...

Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless


The Zeppelin speaker line was born out love for 20th century German airships. That and music.

It’s the ultimate wireless speaker for the streaming-savvy audiophile.

Consumer review by: matt (

great speaker for the size and $


Excellent sound quality coming from such a small device. Has the stereo separation and staging of much larger speakers. Airplay seems to hiccup every once in awhile, but overall pretty good. Bluetooth works better but is not quite as easy to use as...

Great Sound


Love the sound. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 Stars is it loses connection on Wi Fi at least twice an hour even with a strong signal. Absolutely a top shelf product besides that.
