Bowers & Wilkins Adds Smart Features to Their Zeppelin Speaker

Bowers & Wilkins has long produced some of the finest high-end speakers on the market, including their iconic Zeppelin with its distinct modern design. Now, B&W has released a new rendition of the Zeppelin that maintains its sleek form while improving performance and adding features for the streaming age.

Shaped like its namesake, the Zeppelin initially spawned in 2007 as a speaker dock for what was then a merely six-year-young iPod and has grown very familiar with Apple products since. With Bluetooth connectivity to AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and AptX Adaptive, streaming music from your service of choice is seamless when using this contemporary audiophile’s marvel. Adding to that, the speaker also features Alexa, allowing listeners to maneuver through tracklists by voice without having to scroll through a paired device. While the wireless smart speaker offers many of the same features that one would expect out of a product with ‘smart’ in its listing, B&W’s unprecedented sound quality separates their version from any posers crowding the market. With dynamic HQ prominently backed by a pair of 3.5-inch mid-range drivers, a powerful six-inch subwoofer, and 24-bit high-resolution across numerous services, this is how all of your entertainment sources were meant to sound.

The process by which we digest music nowadays is night-and-day in comparison to how we were listening just a decade ago, and B&W is fully embracing the change with the new Zeppelin. You can expect to pay a pretty penny and still get your dollar’s worth for this state-of-the-art speaker, as the Zeppelin is available now from B&W’s website for $800 in both Midnight Grey and Pearl Grey.
