The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin, one of the most iconic iPod speakers of all time, is back and better than ever. The latest version of the Zeppelin takes the timeless “cigar” silhouette style of the original and adds the latest wireless connectivity options.
Widely regarded as one of the finest speaker manufacturers in the world, Bowers & Wilkins are known for their class-leading sound quality. The speakers in the new Zeppelin are no exception, featuring double dome tweeters similar to those found in the 600 Series Anniversary speakers for exceptional clarity, FST technology for superb vocal realism in the mid-range, and a dedicated woofer for powerful bass.
In addition to its impressive sound quality, the new Zeppelin also offers a wide range of connectivity options. AirPlay 2, Bluetooth aptX Adaptive, and Spotify Connect (Premium account required) are all built-in, making it easy to stream music from any device, including Apple, Android, and other Bluetooth-enabled sources. Additionally, the Bowers & Wilkins Music app allows users to control multiple streaming services in one central location, and also offers voice control via Alexa, allowing users to play their music with simple voice commands.
One of the most exciting new features of the Zeppelin is its ability to play Hi-res music files. With more and more music services now offering Hi-resolution options, the Zeppelin is able to stream music files up to 24-bit resolution. This feature will be especially appealing to audiophiles who are looking for the highest quality sound possible.
Another major upgrade for the new Zeppelin is its ability for multi-room playback. This feature is expected to be added soon via an over-the-air upgrade, and will allow users to play the same music throughout their home or different music in separate rooms, using the Bowers & Wilkins app. The Zeppelin will be able to be used as part of an all-Zeppelin multi-room music system, or alternatively, as part of a Bowers & Wilkins Formation multi-room system. All in all, the new Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin is a game changer that redefines what can be expected from an iPod speaker. With its timeless style, class-leading sound quality, and advanced connectivity and control options, it’s sure to be a hit with music lovers of all types.
