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

 

The next-generation Zeppelin speaker features both Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth wireless connectivity in a redesigned package that delivers better sound -- but costs $700.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin

 

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin

Seriously sleek, high-end iPod stereo speaker; three-way stereo system with two 1-inch tweeters, two 3.5-inch midrange drivers and one 5-inch woofer; 100 watts of power; mirror-polished stainless steel cabinet with black cloth grille; matching remote...

Very expensive; sounds better on acoustic music than bass-heavy genres such as rock and hip-hop; rubberized mounting stand seems better-suited to a cheaper product; light on features.

The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin effectively combines substantial build quality and detailed sound--but you're still paying a hefty premium for the iPod speaker's stunning good looks.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin

 

B&W's design piece sounds great, but don't expect any special features.

Excellent sound. Exotic design. Video-out for iPod-to-TV. USB connection to perform software updates. Rubber mount to change speaker angle.

Limited remote. Takes up a lot of space. Expensive for a featureless dock.

B&W Zeppelin

 

people will see, however, is the Zeppelin's graceful design, from the metallic arm that docks the iPod and puts it on display (Apple iPods, we forget, are design pieces in their own right) to the bizarre body that seems impossibly balanced. I have to...

Limited remote. Takes up a lot of space. Expensive for a featureless dock.

The Zeppelin iPod dock costs a ton because of its graceful design and excellent sound, but don't expect any fancy functions such as a FM radio, alarm, or even useful iPod navigation on the remote.

B&W Zeppelin Speaker System for iPod Review

 

B&W's Zeppelin speaker system for iPod looks more like a piece of modern art than a set of speakers. Then again, it looks more like a black and chrome version of the Hindenburg than modern art. So

Tight, punchy bass ; Crisp, detailed highs ; Sleek styling

Funky remote ; Expensive (you get what you pay for)

Without a doubt, this is the best speaker system for iPod I have had the pleasure of listening to. It is very hard for me to find much to complain about in the system. The remote is a bit awkward feeling in my hand - the buttons are very small and...

B&W Zeppelin iPod Speaker Dock

 

For many, the initials B&W will conjure images of Ansel Adams photographs and Hollywood classics; the thoughts of audiophiles, however, will turn fondly to the legendary speakers of Bowers & Wilkins. The idea of B&W turning its thoughts to the iPod...

The best sound we've heard in an iPod dock; incredible looks

It's six hundred dollars

An integrated amp delivers 50 watts to the bass speaker and 25 watts to each of the other speakers. Our experience backs B&W’s claim that an onboard digital signal processor automatically adjusts frequency balances in response to volume levels. The...

Review: B&W Zeppelin iPod speaker system

 

The Zeppelin is among the most expensive iPod speaker systems we've seen, and if sound quality is your only consideration, there are less-expensive alternatives. But, like Apple's own hardware, few systems can match the Zeppelin's combination of...

The Zeppelin’s built-in, rubber-foot base angles the system slightly upwards for placing the Zeppelin below ear level; an add-on stand, also rubber, lifts the back of the system slightly so the speakers radiate horizontally (the approach to take if the...

Review: B&W Zeppelin

 

It's no wonder that the high-end audio community initially dismissed the MP3 revolution since highly compressed digital music files lose resolution, definition and clarity during the ripping process. However, you can't ignore the popularity of the iPod...

Zeppelin is a far more serious playback system for the ubiquitous iPod than what's been available. In addition to exceptional definition and clarity, I've yet to hear an iPod speaker/docking station with the bass response and imaging capabilities of...
