Zepplin Review

PeteT, Crutchfield
2 January 2014
  • Summary: If first and foremost is the sound quality you seek with these mini speakers you will not be dissapointed. Understanding also that you will not get the full stereo effect as you do with seperates. For the most part, most who buy these sorts of speaker systems use it mainly for easy listening, conveniance and ease of use. Well, at least the first 2 of 3 that I listed.
  • Pros: Good sound and high end looks from a pedigree company.
  • Cons: Set up and cost. Years past you could understand why the premium price, but now with other kids on the block that can match performance, alternative looks and cheaper pricing it would not be hard to ask the question!

Got it working. Finally.

  • Summary: Three minutes with a support rep named Tim undid 3 months of frustration trying to follow the setup booklet. Despite my earlier comments, this is a quality product, well made, great sound and well integrated into my home network. Thanks Tim.

B&W Zeppelin Air powered

SimonE, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Easy set-up, looks great and great build quality. I would say the sound is really good; but for the money, not what I would call awesome or amazing. A pretty simple separate system would blow this thing away in terms of sound quality. But if you take it for what it is which is a very stylish, portable component it does everything you'd want it to do! I knew i was paying a high price for the design, but i am OK with that. Don't waste your money on Bose...buy this!
  • Pros: Looks Build Quality Sound Quality
  • Cons: Price

  • Summary: Looks good and sounds great. unfortunately gets disconnected frequently when i use my iphone 4s. It works well with my MacBook pro. I'm not sure if I keep it as I am disappointed .I am sure B&W is aware of this problem and they have not fixed it yet and falsely claiming that it is compatible with all Iphones.as I gathered after googleing this problem ; others have this problem and even more(I felt somehow lucky).

Great funtionality

  • Summary: UPDATE, July 9, 2011: It looks like the Zeppelin Air needed some hours of extended play in order to "open up" and allow the speakers to "burn in" (I hope I am using the right terminology :) I have had the Zepp for 2 weeks now, and the sound is pretty darn awesome. It is rich, detailed, clear with good bass without being overpowering.

  • Summary: I think that most reviews of this product are fair. It is a great product and the sound is amazing. However, it is difficult to set up.

Great sound and flexibility

BriGuy, FutureShop

  • Summary: Pro - Fantastic sound range and clarity ! Easily portable with Room filling audio. The remote control allows volume and selection skip control, so we will be using it with an iPod at our wedding. Works well over wifi, if within range. Con - A little pricey but, you do get what you pay for. Would rather have an adapter to fit changes in iPod connector's. I'm Very Disappointed with Apple's connection changes! New connection looks and feels fragile.

Fantastic sound... pity about the setup

R. Harford, Amazon
28 March 2013
  • Summary: Would have given this 5 stars if not for the setup process, what a pain it was. It took over 2 hours to setup airplay, the applications provided appear to be a bit flakey (e.g. the mac application only managed to add a new device when it was run after logging on). The sound quality is very good, bass is fantastic! Glad the setup is only a one-time thing. Once setup, managed to get ipods, ipads and apple TV connected effortlessly.

Probably the best single speaker airplay solution out there

Mr. P. D. Charnley "Doug Charnley", Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: I got this Zeppelin Air after looking for an airplay speaker system for my bedroom and I have to say on the whole I was very impressed. Good points: Excellent design, built quality and fit and finish. Straight away you are struck with how solid, classy and well made this is. The design is a bit unique but personally, I love it. Much prefer it to the bland boxes of Bose and the B&W A5/7. The sound quality really is excellent - especially those tweeters!

Excellent sound and easy set up (at least for me)

BigMAc 58, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: I know others have had difficulty setting this up. Fortunately I didn't and I am a dunce when it comes to all things technical. Sound quality is superb and fills a large kitchen wonderfully. One problem I have found is that the new i-pod touch and phone (5 series) now have a 9 point lightening dock as opposed to the 30 point that is on this, which means having to buy an adapter or use an aux socket if you want to use it other than wirelessly.
