  • Conclusion: While audio quality is Libratone’s biggest sales point in the audio market, the Zipp succeeds future-proof connectivity to smartphones and Wi-Fi networks and portability without compromise. The Zipp is the lowest-end product and yet it could easily be confused for a much more expensive product.
  • Pros: Excellent audio quality. Perfect for travel. Long battery life. Multiple easy connection options.
  • Cons: A bit expensive for someone looking for a travel-friendly speaker. App is cheap.

GadgeTell Review: Libratone Zipp Wireless Speaker

TechnologyTell
30 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Libratone Zipp creates wonderful sound that flows out and touches you right in the feelings. It delivers music in such a way that gets people up and moving, an aspect that is sometimes lost on many other speakers. I was dubious about the wool covers at first.

  • Excerpt: If you don’t believe that the market for speakers and personal audio equipment is already saturated, just wait until 2014. There’s going to be more competition galore. Even now, there are so many choices across the brackets of price and size that a bit of hunting can find the ideal speaker for that...

Review: Libratone Zipp

Wired
27 March 2013
  • Pros: Best example so far of Libratone’s design chops. Sound is great for modest parties in medium-size rooms. AirPlay setup and use is as easy as it gets on an established Wi-Fi connection. Decent battery life.
  • Cons: The cost is a put-off. PlayDirect works, but setting up internet streaming is an annoyance. If you rely on Spotify or Pandora and plan to take the Zipp to the beach, consider carefully.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The wireless Libratone Zipp is portable, ultra-stylish, and a solid audio performer at moderate volumes, but its signal processing will be a turn-off for some.
  • Pros: Portable, wireless audio via Apple Airplay. Innovative PlayDirect feature allows for wireless audio without a Wi-Fi network. Quality audio performance at moderate-to-high levels. Does not distort on deep bass tracks. Simple set up process.
  • Cons: Not for bass lovers, nor purists opposed to digital signal processing. Shape of speaker prohibits strong stereo image.

Libratone Zipp review: Portable AirPlay speaker trades features for convenience

CNET
12 November 2012
  • Summary: The Libratone Zipp is one of the best-sounding and best-looking portable wireless speakers out there, but its high price and Wi-Fi limitations give us pause.
  • Pros: The portable, AirPlay speaker has a modern, eye-catching design and excellent sound for its size, and you can connect directly to it from an iOS mobile device, PC, or Mac. It has a built-in rechargeable battery or can be powered by an included AC adapter. It also has a USB port for charging smart...
  • Cons: Many source devices can't access Wi-Fi services while connected to the Libratone, or need to use pricey data plans; the Zipp only has 4 hours of battery life with wireless on; it's not compatible with Android smartphones and tablets (no Bluetooth); and it's expensive.
