Bowers & Wilkins Z2 Review

Chip Chick
18 June 2013
  • Summary: Bowers & Wilkins Z2 is leading the pack in the crowded compact iPhone 5 / iOS device speaker market. It offers a warm and inviting listening experience, and while the sonics are balanced, the bass is very impressive for such a small speaker too. Furthermore, its slim and black design doesn’t impose on a room, but it actually enhances it, while the small footprint keeps it out of sight. The Z2 is a small treasure hiding in the shadows.
  • Pros: Sounds and looks amazing. Balanced and rich with a warm bass pulls all of the sonics together. Audio is able to get loud without audio getting distorted. Design aesthetic flows throughout the system down to the included remote.
  • Cons: Top side attracts dust easily.  No Airplay set-up instructions in the box.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins Z2

14 May 2013
  • Excerpt: They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but for Bowers and Wilkins, the hits keep coming. Following in the footsteps of the Zeppelin Air and the A2 and A7, B&W’s latest Airplay speaker dock follows with a sleek, minimal design, and big sound for its small size. While the A7 comes in at $800, the Z2 features a much smaller $400 price tag.

  • Conclusion: The elegantly designed, yet relatively affordable, Bowers & Wilkins Z2 speaker system raises the bar for audio quality, and offers wireless AirPlay connectivity along with a Lightning connector to dock your iPhone or iPod touch.
  • Pros: Sleek, unobtrusive design. Cleverly designed Lightning Connector dock. Warm, rich, transparent sound. Bass response has real weight. Crisp, clear wireless audio over AirPlay. Easy to set up using free app.
  • Cons: Awkward, egg-shaped remote. Chops off a couple of seconds of each track in wireless mode.

Bowers & Wilkins Z2 review

5 June 2013
  • Summary: The baby of B&W's AirPlay range is a little belter, and it adds a proper Lightning dock to Apple's wireless tech. It'll easily fill a small to medium-sized room with chunky bass, punchy beats and lovely, clear vocals. You'll buy it for the look, but love it for the sound.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to the art of doing premium – and stylish - home Hi-Fi, Bowers and Wilkins is proudly at the top of its game. The Zeppelin, with its killer design and sonic kick, was a neat approach to home audio when it took to the skies - with the Zeppelin Mini following in tow.
