Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) Zeppelin iPod Dock Speaker System Review

BigPictureBigSound
30 April 2009
  • Conclusion: A marvel of design and performance, the B&W Zeppelin is almost an oxymoron, as a truly high-end iPod dock. A full three-way stereo speaker system in a single-piece device, it delivers music better than a lot of people have ever heard, and looks badass while doing it.
  • Pros: Oh my heavens, does this thing sound good!, Incredibly gorgeous, artistic design including a stainless steel derriere...
  • Cons: ...that collects fingerprints better than a CSI, Remote provides only basic functionality, we still need to handle the iPod

  • Excerpt: The Bowers & Wilkins name is practically synonymous with high-end sound.

  • Conclusion: We’ve always had a lot of respect for B&W, as they don’t cut corners when it comes to building some really sweet speakers. The Zeppelin continues this tradition and adds a design that benefits sound quality even more than it does the eye.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin iPod Speakers

Macenstein
19 November 2007
  • Conclusion: So, what does a $600 speaker sound like? Well, it sounds like a really nice $400 speaker. However, I will admit that the Zeppelin looks and feels like a $600 speaker, and the analogy can be made between the Zeppelin and an expensive car, such as the Mercedes I don’t drive.
  • Pros: Amazing sound for an all-in-one speaker, extremely high volumes with no distortion, quality build and unique design
  • Cons: Pricey for an iPod speaker

PC Magazine
5 September 2007
  • Conclusion: The Zeppelin iPod dock costs a ton because of its graceful design and excellent sound, but don't expect any fancy functions such as a FM radio, alarm, or even useful iPod navigation on the remote.
  • Pros: Excellent sound. Exotic design. Video-out for iPod-to-TV. USB connection to perform software updates. Rubber mount to change speaker angle.
  • Cons: Limited remote. Takes up a lot of space. Expensive for a featureless dock.

B&W Zeppelin review

PriceRunner
21 September 2009
  • Excerpt: It’s easy to see where this iPod dock gets its balloonish moniker from – but is the performance able to match the styling? Well? is it?
  • Pros: Named for its airship-like looks, this British-designed speaker dock effortlessly blends sonic skill with high style. With a burly 100W of amplification driving the speakers and subwoofer, it delivers loud but refined sound with satisfyingly throbbing bass.
  • Cons: At nearly £400 the price tag is a big hurdle to get over, and aside from basic docking ability, a TV output and a remote that lets you tweak volume/bass/treble there’s little in the way of extra features – there’s no sync port for an iTunes-equipped computer, for instance.
