  • Summary: Looks can thrill but with a sound quality to match, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air is the king of the roost for those who need an audio boost for their iPod or iPhone. In fact, we can’t praise the overall gadget quality of this system enough, it’s simply that good!

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Review

Digitaltrends
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. Sure you are paying more for an incrementally better product, but value was never really part of B&W’s plan in the first place. The Zeppelin Air offers exceptional sound quality for an iPod dock, has a look that screams for attention, and is made by the Ferrari of home audio, Bowers & Wilkins.
  • Pros: Amazing sound, Great build quality, Stylish design
  • Cons: Finicky network connectivity, Lacks true iTunes Windows instructions, Minor network interference, Faux plastic chrome

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air

PC Magazine
24 June 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.

  • Pros: Excellent sound quality for a medium-sized room, AirPlay works very easily, Great design
  • Cons: It's so expensive, Setup for AirPlay could confuse newbies, especially because there is no LCD screen

  • Excerpt: Bowers & Wilkins' Zeppelin Air iPod dock sounds excellent, looks very stylish and works easily once you've got it set up (an initially confusing process). The only concern we have is with its high price tag, which will deter plenty of prospective buyers.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air

CNET
22 March 2011
  • Summary: While the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air is as pricey as the earlier Zeppelin, Apple AirPlay support and improved sound quality make it a better value.
  • Pros: The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air is a sleek, high-end iPod/iPhone stereo speaker with built-in Apple AirPlay audio-streaming capabilities. Ample speaker drivers--two 1-inch tweeters, two 3-inch midrange drivers, and one 5-inch woofer--provide solid sound. AirPlay compatibility is available via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
  • Cons: The Zeppelin Air is very expensive, and it offers little stereo separation unless you're sitting or standing near the speaker. AirPlay setup may be tough for first-timers, and there are some compromises when controlling via iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.

Test Zeppelin Air : l'évolution du dock phare de Bowers & Wilkins

Clubic
19 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Bowers & Wilkins reste fidèle à sa réputation, en proposant un produit luxueux qui donne entière satisfaction et sonne mieux que la concurrence. Le constructeur est même parvenu à améliorer son Zeppelin déjà excellent ! Cependant, en dehors du AirPlay et du gain de puissance que les membranes ont du mal à digérer, le Air n'apporte pas de bénéfice majeur. Et il permet malheureusement à Bowers & Wilkins de se repositionner à 600 € prix public.
  • Pros: Son équilibré, propre et puissant, Design original / finition luxueuse, Diffusion AirPlay / Dock bien pensé, Connectique assez complète
  • Cons: Prix très (trop ?) élevé, Réglages audio limités, Installation Wi-Fi assez pénible, Trop de puissance pour les HP ?
