Bottom Line - Designed and Built for People w/Low Expectations

big_art, Amazon

  • Summary: Bowers & Wilkins, known for its solid sounding bookshelf and floor standing speakers falls short on all fronts with this Wi-Fi Airplay enabled speaker. Why? Simply put, for the price, it just does not perform as it should.

Great sound, questionable software support, very poor network connectivity.

William Cornock, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: The sound quality is amazingly good for a device of this size, but a history of technical problems with various firmware versions and an ongoing issue of poor network connectivity make it a poor device.

Sounds awesome but AirPlay won't work with iPhone 4s

Ari T. Radetsky, Amazon

  • Summary: The sound on this thing is outstanding. Unfortunately there is a bug that B & W acknowledges prevents an iPhone 4s from streaming properly via AirPlay. This is a direct quote from a B & W customer service e-mail: We have however identified a bug when using the iPhone 4S and Apples AirPlay feature.

Nightmare Setup

Kathy, FutureShop

  • Summary: Love the sound! Love that I can still dock my iPod! I had a nightmare setting this up. I returned the first one after trying for hours to get it set up. I finally figured out that although my network password did not include any special characters my network name contained an ampersand.

Zeppelin Air

  • Summary: As a straight iPod dock this unit is superb. The AirPlay connectivity simply does NOT work. Bowers & WIlkins support are very helpful BUT they do not have an answer to the problem.

Very disappointed to have to fork out so much for something ...

Sensible shopper, Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: Had it for 2 1/2 years before it broke. Looking online reliability appears to be an issue. B&W have a very slick repair service that will cost you £95. I think they must be well practiced. Very disappointed to have to fork out so much for something just out of warranty.

I have used it with a Talk-Talk modem and now with a Virgin super hub. I am not saying it is the ...

B&Ware, Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: The idea that this works seamlessly with a Macbook is laughable. I have had one for 18 months and regret buying it. It is totally unreliable. Sometimes it connects sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it just cuts out. It IS set up correctly.

  • Summary: Bought a Zeppelin Air to stream my tracks from my ipad2, it was relatively easy to set up but then one day just went wrong. I am on my 4th set of correspondence with the support team who are very friendly but not available at the weekends when I am at home trying to fix the bugs on this thing.
  • Pros: Amazing sound quality when it works
  • Cons: When they go wrong, they go wrong
