Good sound quality

YAOYU CHEN, Amazon
6 days ago
  • Summary: Good sound quality, but the one I received is defective pretty sad. Always get disconnected and had some white noise somehow. It looks good, I guess I have to put it as decoration. Be aware, its hazardous product, cannot return. Hope you had better luck if you plan to order, But amazon has great customer service. 2 star for their customer service.

Pretty Good sound, not friendly wi fi connection

ERAD, Crutchfield
2 January 2014
  • Summary: This is probably one of the best sound ipod/iphone speakers systems I have ever heard. It is not wi fi friendly at all. Mine arrives with and old software version after following instructions, I downloaded the new version of the wifi software. Then after following the step by step couldn´t get wifi connected. Unfortunately I can only use it directly connecting iPod/iPhone.
  • Pros: Good Sound quality, as expected from a a B&W speaker.
  • Cons: Poor wifi connection, not friendly software.

B & W name is on the product

gingrichgroup, CNET
26 January 2012
  • Summary: For the money, it is better to hook the i-pad to a more fuller sound system. Bass is simply tin like. But i prefer this to the JBL product.
  • Pros: Those who always wanted B & W name will be quite happy.
  • Cons: Not so good sounds.

It's NOT Hifi

Andy "Sound Obsessive", Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: Dont be fooled by the hype. This does not even come close to a hifi system. A cheap cambridge audio amp and eltax monitor iii speakers completely blow this thing out of the water. Its a great and expensive ipod dock but that is were it ends. I had one for a few days and had to send it back - it was just bass. It clouds everything. It was just as a second system and I wasn't even happy with it for that.

Bass driven with lack of details in sound

Mark Twain, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Zeppelin is really handy with it's airplay. It works great and stable for me from any device. Cons: sound is not great at all. Zeppelin produces big fat bass even at low volume and that is all about it. No details in the middle, no trebles. I think it may work fine for house music but everything with instruments and vocal involved sounds really dull and poor. It actually sounds like if bass was fighting the rest of the spectrum (despite even being set to -1).

Sounds great, but loses 2 stars because of the naff wifi setup.

ghjgh, Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: Let me save you a couple of days - you CANNOT have any "special characters" such as an ampersand (&) in your wifi network name, or password. Since this is very common among anyone who is used to using secure passwords (including me) you may well have to reconfigure every device on your network in order to get airplay to work on the Zeppelin.

User Review

bizfortum, Yandex
29 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Выбирал себе девайс для беспроводной передачи звука (фильмы с айпада, музыки с айфон и айпод). Дома много аппаратуры от Pioneer, хотел уже покупать его девайс с айрплэй. Но смутил дизайн, лишние навороты которые не нужны, и обилие всяких кнопок. Взял B&W. Впринципе - все бы хорошо, и звук нормальный (без восторга), и минимальзм который люблю - присутствует. Но потеря связи - побешивает.
  • Pros: Хороший звук. При выкручивании громкости на максимум - не захлебывается. Вполне способен озвучить вечеринку в комнате метров 30-50. Интеренсный дизайн, минимальное количество управлемых элементов: вкл/выкл, звук больше-меньше. Расположено удобно. Эппловские гаджеты находят его мгновенно (см.ниже).
  • Cons: Главный недостаток- потеря связи. Т.е. если Цеппелин впал в сон, то с его включением гаджеты не всегда его видят. Значек AirPlay не появляется. Приходится заново его переинициализировать - запускать настройку, устанавливать ему конфигурацию и т.д. Весьма утомительное занятие. Документация излишне аскетичная. Людям которые с гаджетами не "на Ты", придется звать знакомого айтишника для включения этого чуда. Не и запомнить как делать переинициализацию когда он потеряет с...
