B&W’s Zeppelin Air

29 July 2013
  • Excerpt: B&W began a revolution of sound, style and function in 2008 with the original Zeppelin. Competing with a plethora of cheapo iPod docks that sounded dreadful, B&W created an aural and visual tour de force, functioning much more than an iPod dock, with multiple inputs (line level, USB, Toslink and...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air

PC Magazine
7 December 2011
  • Conclusion: With Bowers and Wilkins, you definitely pay for the name and visual design as much as the audio quality. But excellent-sounding Zeppelin Air iPod dock with wireless streaming via AirPlay does not disappoint.
  • Pros: Top-notch audio performance. Sleek, minimal design. Streams audio via AirPlay from Apple devices. Output for sending video content to television.
  • Cons: Expensive. Remote control is awkwardly shaped, missing key features.

PC Magazine
4 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The striking B&W Zeppelin Air sounds as excellent as it did when the company first released the 30-pin version of this speaker in 2011, but it still has lingering AirPlay-related flaws.
  • Pros: Top-notch audio performance. Distinctive style.
  • Cons: AirPlay-only. Irritating input lag when using AirPlay. Slightly processes sub-bass. Useless remote.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speaker/Dock Review

The Gadgeteer
1 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Update 2: Bowers & Wilkins has released an iPhone app – Zeppelin Air – for music sharing. If you are having a party, you and your friends can download the app, create playlists on each iPhone and let the Zeppelin Air choose among the iPhones randomly for a mix of musical styles from various...
  • Pros: Apple AirPlay which blows Bluetooth away., Stunning looks and even more stunning sound., Solidly built., Music sharing app.
  • Cons: Very Expensive., Different colored lights on the front of the unit mean something. I can never remember what, plus it's hard to see what color is showing far away., Frustrating AirPlay setup. But once done, it's simple to use., Beware the firmware updates.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Review

18 July 2011
  • Conclusion: So is the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air really worth the $599 price tag? Well, is a Ferrari really worth $250K? Both of these products are in a league of their own in some regards.
  • Pros: Amazing sound, Great build quality, Stylish design
  • Cons: Finicky network connectivity, Lacks true iTunes Windows instructions, Minor network interference, Faux plastic chrome

Gear Diary
26 May 2011
  • Excerpt: As I have noted elsewhere on the site, I find myself listening to more music than ever these days. Much of the reason for this has to do with the fact that I’m always carrying at least one, if not two or three, devices that are able to stream a whole host of different types of music from a variety...
  • Pros: Big bold look and sound; takes advantage of Apple’s AirPlay; cute little remote
  • Cons: A bit to heavy on the bass for my taste out of the box but this can be adjusted in a few easy steps; a bit too bold looks-wise for Elana’s taste; limited functionality on the cute little remote

  • Pros: Great sound quality; attractive design; AirPlay wireless streaming works well.
  • Cons: Expensive; docking stand is redundant if you're using AirPlay.
