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 from just ten employees at the introduction of its...

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

A Danish upstart goes head-to-head with the Jawbone Big Jambox and Bose SoundLink

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…

Libratone Zipp review


The more Apple fiddles around with its dock connector, the less iOS speaker manufacturers seem to care. The proof of the pudding is that there are far fewer dock-based audio systems sent our way compared to the enormous wave of Lightning-agnostic...

Great looks, very easy to use, decent battery. The fact that it can create its own wireless network for playback is an excellent touch

Audio quality is average to good, but should really be good to very good at this price

Flexible, stylish and good to use; a great piece of kit for Apple users. One of the best portable audio solutions around. Not something for Android people.

Libratone Zipp review


It's furry! It's cylindrical! It's available in a variety of bright colours! Yep, it's clear from the off that the Libratone Zipp is a bit of an attention-seeker. That shape isn't simple affectation, though. Instead it's designed to deliver 360-degree...
