Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin mini: First Class iPhone Speaker System
The Mac Observer
12 September 2008
Conclusion: The Zeppelin mini, which started shipping in late October, is avaiable from: Apple, Amazon and approved B&W dealers.
Pros: Unique, beautiful, functional design. Channeled Low Frequency bass. Great out of the box experience. Great sound. Complete documentation. Perfect integration with Apple iPhones and iPods. Works with PC and Mac. Attention to every detail.
Summary: We loved the original B&W Zeppelin . But if you were feeling very picky, you could point to its wide-boy stance as a sticking point: not everyone has enough desktop space to accommodate a dock with a 64cm wingspan. Hence the Zeppelin Mini. It’s an original Design-wise, it’s just as quirky as its big brother. The curved chassis is top-and-tailed by a chrome base and angled chrome ‘bowl’. Sat in the middle is a new docking arm that can rotate 90 degrees.
