Review: Libratone Zipp


You've probably seen Libratone's speakers on display in Apple's retail stores. They're the visually striking, fabric-covered things that look like little sculptures. A new addition...

Best example so far of Libratone’s design chops. Sound is great for modest parties in medium-size rooms. AirPlay setup and use is as easy as it gets on an established Wi-Fi connection. Decent battery life

The cost is a put-off. PlayDirect works, but setting up internet streaming is an annoyance. If you rely on Spotify or Pandora and plan to take the Zipp to the beach, consider carefully

Libratone Zipp


The Libratone Zipp is the younger, more portable sibling to the more expensive Libratone Live , both of which are stylish wireless speakers that stream audio via Apple's AirPlay. At $449 (direct), it's not cheap, but none of the quality AirPlay...

Portable, wireless audio via Apple Airplay. Innovative PlayDirect feature allows for wireless audio without a Wi-Fi network. Quality audio performance at moderate-to-high levels. Does not distort on deep bass tracks. Simple set up process

Not for bass lovers, nor purists opposed to digital signal processing. Shape of speaker prohibits strong stereo image

The wireless Libratone Zipp is portable, ultra-stylish, and a solid audio performer at moderate volumes, but its signal processing will be a turn-off for some.

Libratone Zipp rocks the house via AirPlay and PlayDirect (review)


Summary: There are several wireless speaker options out there today, most use Bluetooth for the connection. AirPlay speakers use WiFi and the sound output is greatly improved IMHO. The Libratone Zipp is an affordable and powerful speaker you may want...

Libratone Zipp Review


Time was, if you wanted a wooly column of wireless musical pleasure, you had to train a sheep to stand upright and sing. Libratone 's new Zipp, however, changes that: a wool wrapped portable speaker delivering not only Apple's AirPlay but a tweaked...

Apple is pushing away from speaker docks and focusing on wireless audio, and the accessory industry is eager to oblige. Such systems have generally been more expensive than traditional, wired docks, but that's also encouraged manufacturers to dress...

Libratone Zipp review: PlayDirect AirPlay takes on Bluetooth speakers


Libratone isn't a household name yet, but the 30-person Danish company with its roots in acclaimed Steinway Lyngdorf audio is hoping to change the face of portable speakers, literally. Having grown...

Sounds terrific, easily fills a room ; PlayDirect makes AirPlay truly portable for iOS and Mac users ; Looks great, can change appearance with optional sleeves ; Leather strap is a helpful / quirky addition ; PlayDirect Wi-Fi has better range than...

Expensive speaker, expensive sleeves ; No Bluetooth so no wireless support for Windows or Android ; PlayDirect interrupts 3G data unless manually configured ; PlayDirect can be finicky, requiring reboot

The Libratone Zipp is my new favorite portable wireless speaker

Libratone Zipp Review


In making its speaker different, Libratone has opted to favor a more modern looking design with its Zipp portable speaker. Indeed, it's not a totally new design we haven't seen before, as we've come across several cylindrical shaped speakers before,...

Personalized element with its Wool covers ; Its design is modern and inviting ; Enhanced audio projection via the Libratone app

Audio quality sounds strained at the loudest setting ; Very expensive portable solution at $400 ; No Bluetooth connection

Visually, we can’t deny that the Libratone Zipp has an amusing one that manages to go outside of the norm, but the $400 price point attached to it online through places like Amazon makes it a tough call. It sure is a big investment on its own, that’s...

Dual Review: Libratone's Lounge and Zipp speakers cover both ends of the spectrum


Libratone has made a name for itself by baking high-tech components, innovative design and consistent sound quality into its systems, features usually seen only in much more expensive systems. AppleInsider was able to take a look at how the Lounge, one...

Amazing sound fidelity from small package ; Room-filling 360-degree sound ; Advanced connectivity and extended battery life on-the-go

A bit larger than competing products ; DSP overbearing in certain EQ modes

The Lounge and Zipp are on two ends of the spectrum in terms of size, power output and usability, but Libratone has managed to imbue both models with similar sound quality. While their sonic fingerprints don't perfectly align, the use of ribbon...

Libratone ZIPP AirPlay Speaker Review! (video)


I recently met with the CEO of a high-end speaker company called Libratone to discuss his latest and most affordable product yet, the Libratone ZIPP. It uses AirPlay, which means you can wireless play audio from any number of iOS…

Reviews: Libratone Zipp AirPlay Speaker


Yes, there have been deliberately “cute” speakers in the past—ones shaped like animals, for instance—but Libratone’s Zipp is the first design we’ve seen that looks cute in a mature way, thanks to refinements of...

From our standpoint, Zipp has one critical issue, and that’s audio quality for the price. Thanks to a three-speaker design that relies upon two 1” ribbon tweeters and a single 4” upward-firing bass driver, Zipp winds up sonically rivaling good $150...
