Libratone Zipp

 

The first portable speaker to allow AirPlay on the move is a technical triumph.

Lossless audio on the move, Stylish, customisable design, AirPlay

Short battery life over WiFi, Bass overwhelms treble, Extremely expensive

Libratone Zipp (2015) review

 

The Zipp has shed its fur, but remains an innovative multi-room option...

Full-bodied, smooth sound ; Rhythmically good ; Innovative multi-room options ; Stand-out design

Lacking some drive ; Slightly closed-in presentation

The new Zipp is certainly a step on from its predecessor and falls short only marginally when compared with class leaders at this price

Libratone Zipp BT review

 

Libratone offers a very likeable product that is well worth investing in

Spacious, room-filling sound Clear and open Refined and subtle Agile, musical and engaging Extensive features Stylish

Paltry battery life

There’s no denying the Libratone Zipp BT’s charm. It’s lovely to listen to, and we’d welcome it into our homes with open arms. MORE: Best Bluetooth speakers 2015

Libratone Zipp review

 

Stylish AirPlay speaker stands out with super sound

High build quality ; Wi-Fi Direct ; Agile, punchy sound ; Good detail

Battery could last longer ; Sound not particularly weighty

Libratone has finally nailed it with the Zipp: it's a stylish AirPlay speaker with super sound

Libratone Zipp review: is this the one wireless, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled, multi-room speaker system to rule them all?

 

Plus, T3 speaks to sound engineer Uffe Hansen about creating a 360-degree stereo image, SoundSpaces and why multi-room audio is about to explode

360-degree output ; Clean Scandinavian design ; Seamless format switching

Libratone Zipp review: A sound Scandinavian success

 

Libratone is a Scandinavian company and does things a little differently. First, it likes its materials: whether woolly coats or similar, like with its Diva soundbar. Second, its products aren't as outlandishly expensive as most things in Copenhagen....

Big sound & bass, quirky & colourful designs, multi-room/pairing possible, affordable considering competition, simple app setup & control

Not the very cleanest sound (great for the price though), it’s rather large, touch control occasionally fussy

The Libratone Zipp is a total rework of its 2012 original. The new quirky zip-up design is fun, while the physical size - which perhaps makes it a bit too large to cart around outside of the house - lends well to stomping bass and audio output...

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...

Libratone Zipp review

 

An excellent sounding home speaker you can also take on the go

Beautiful design ; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support ; Balanced and clear sound

Not as seamless as Sonos ; Short battery life ; Buggy smartphone software

The Libratone Zipp is beautifully designed and sounds excellent. Its size and relatively short battery life mean the Zipp is mostly meant for listening around the home but you can take it outside, too. The addition of Wi-Fi means you can roll your own...

Libratone Zipp review: A Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker that’ll shake your room

 

The Libratone Zipp can extend multiroom music even into your garden, and the 360 sound is great

Earth shattering bass ; Libratone's SoundSpace Link support ; Design and build quality

Price tag ; App functionalities ; Closed soundstage

The only minor annoyance was the fiddly setup process over Android, but there’s a fail-safe alternative set-up option at least. If you’re looking for a versatile multiroom speaker that’s not limited by streaming compatibility issues and have £250 to...

Libratone Zipp review

 

That main button isn't centered on the top of the Zipp; rather, it's situated near the front of the device. On the opposite side, running down the back of the Zipp, are several other elements: the attachment point for the speaker's leather wrist strap,...

Though it’s 1.3 pounds heavier, the Zipp feels about as portable as the big-but-totable Big Jambox. And as great as the Big Jambox sounds, the Zipp sounds even better. With its clever AirPlay and PlayDirect implementations, its simple setup process,...
