Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review: Big, bold and Bluetooth at last

 

It's been more than four years since Bowers & Wilkins last unleashed a Zeppelin speaker system onto the world - and almost eight since the first one nigh-on created the high-end iPod dock category (remember those?). Now the oval audio behemoth is back...

Iconic design but with new, sleek lines; Spotify Connect and Bluetooth aptX support; AirPlay lossless through a dedicated control app; superb bass response from a reasonably small cabinet; five drive units to give all round audio experience

As weighty physically as it is in bass; pricey for its category (but it sits proudly at the top-end)

Bowers & Wilkins' Zeppelin range over the years has always impressed where it most matters – with the music playback performance. The British company is renowned for putting aside fancy gimmicks and focusing on the audio experience foremost.

Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review

 

Soaring sound or crashing Hindenburg?

Detailed mid-range ; Powerful, controlled bass ; Improved iconic design ; More open system

Still kinda pricey ; Inevitably limited stereo effect ; Slightly awkward setup

The new Zeppelin Wireless is a beautiful-looking and beautiful-sounding network music player, bringing back the classic design with an even more powerful, yet detailed, aural experience.

B&W Zeppelin Wireless review

 

Iconic design and great performance make the Wireless the best Zeppelin yet

Large spread of sound ; Precise soundstage ; Expressive mids ; Stays composed at higher volumes ; Seamless control and design ; Good functionality

No Android app ; Midrange could be more authoritative

Building on the beloved range’s sterling reputation, the Wireless is the best Zeppelin yet

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless

 

Bowers & Wilkins has already wowed the audio world with its iconic Zeppelin, Zeppelin Mini and Zeppelin Air speakers, but the Zeppelin Wireless is taking things to the next level. Every element of this new version has been redesigned from the ground...

With an improved design and mind-blowing musical performance, Wireless is the best Zeppelin yet – but those expecting multiroom or DLNA needn't apply.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review

 

Finally, the classic one-box speaker is streaming-friendly

Killer hi-fi-like sound ; Seamless, elegant design ; High-res compatibility ; Generous connectivity

Not multiroom

It’s the ultimate £500 wireless speaker for the streaming-savvy audiophile

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless Speaker Review

 

The iconic B&W Zeppelin gets a significant makeover and new features but can it stay at the top of the pack?

Refined and powerful sound ; Extremely well made ; Excellent bluetooth implementation

Rather large ; No UPnP streaming ; Fairly pricey

Since the initial launch of the first iteration of Zeppelin, the big speaker from Bowers & Wilkins has been seen as the sound choice at the price. Nothing really changes with this third iteration of the speaker but against the stiff competition that...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless review: Quality audio made easy

 

The Zeppelin is back and it is better in every single way

Supports open standard wireless technologies ; Refined design and excellent construction ; Five speakers producing 150 watts

Expensive ; Android Bowers & Wilkins Control app not yet available

Anyone buying the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless will relish both its simplicity and its skillful playback of music. Better sound can be milked from more sophisticated systems, though they bring wires and inconvenience into the picture. The...

Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless

 

For a while, whenever a friend or coworker asked about a nice wireless sound system for the home, I would recommend the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air. “It's the one that looks like a giant doobie,” I'd say. And thanks to the product's prominent...

The best high-end wireless speaker gets a revamp, and the results are glorious. Loud, bright, and very natural sound with excellent bass. Connect via AirPlay, Bluetooth, or Spotify Connect. Easy set-up through the app. Arresting design looks like the...

Very expensive at $700. Excellent-sounding wireless speakers can be had for less. Swapping between input modes is indicated by an inscrutable, color-changing LED. It sounds best about a foot away from the wall, so don't put it on a bookshelf

If you want something portable, the Big Jambox, UE Boom, or any of their numerous competitors are still your best bets for a sound system to use at beach, in the kitchen, or in hotel rooms. If you want a powerful wireless speaker that offers high...
