Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin iPod speaker

DAM Toon, CNET
30 September 2010
  • Summary: Bought one of these yesterday from JLP - installed it and then found it had the "whistling" background fault which seems to be a recurring problem - contact with B&W including one of their "managers" was the worst customer care experience this year so far - the Zeppelin's on the way back to the retailer now!! - B&W may have a reputation for "high quality" hifi but if their production control allows faulty products to appear in shops they won't survive this recession.
  • Pros: the looks
  • Cons: its faulty

Wireless sound system that is also a handy iPod dock

claire405, Dooyoo
27 December 2012
  • Excerpt: My other half had been eying up the Zeppelin for several years and I finally took the plunge and bought him one for Christmas. I bought it from John Lewis for £449, but check their website because they also sell Grade B stock (this is returned and refurbished stock) for £399. Both version come with a 2 year guarantee. We have the latest model (as of December 2012) Zeppelin Air which includes the AirPlay function.

User Review

james foster, Cnet.co.uk
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Having experienced a problem setting the system up, I was told of a technical glitch that made it incompatible with my router. Customer support was dismissive - and frankly the product is just a glorified boom box with the airplay facility useless. Extremely frustrating and I would return in a heartbeat if it wasn't out of the retailer's return expiry time limit.
  • Pros: Sounds good
  • Cons: Customer care support

Dead solid Zeppelin

shortbread , johnlewis.com
5 January 2012
  • Summary: Seems expensive for what looks like a bit of metal, but once unpacked it is a rather substantial and solid bracket. It needs to be as the Zeppelin is quite heavy. It also can be used for the previous model, just be sure to follow the instructions as to which method of fixing you use as they are both different.

  • Summary: The bracket whilst not cheap is very sturdily made and the Zeppelin looks fantastic up on the wall - especially if you can hide the power lead.

THE High-end iPod dock

harrysthirtyfive, Dooyoo
29 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I, like many, have been through many means of playing music from my iPod/iPhone in my bedroom...connected it to the back of my Hi-Fi via Auxiliary cable, had it connected directly to portable speakers and a couple of docks. They all play the music, yes, but when it comes to audio i'm a bit picky to say the least. I like to have a room filled with high quality sound that I can crank up when desired.
