Product Information

  • Overview

    Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air is the complete AirPlay wireless music system. With top-of-the-line drive unit technologies and design principles, this advanced speaker system sounds as good as it looks. And this version of Zeppelin Air includes a Lightning connector so you can dock your compatible iPhone or iPod.

    Wireless music with AirPlay

    Apple AirPlay technology allows music to be streamed wirelessly from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch straight to the Zeppelin Air. You can even stream high-quality audio directly from your Mac or PC via iTunes. If you have more than one Zeppelin Air, you can use them as an elegant multi-room system.

    Sounds as good as it looks

    The Zeppelin Air retains its original classic shape, but internally the speaker has been completely redesigned with improved dynamics, punchier bass, and a more open, lifelike presentation with highly detailed, room-filling sound.

There is just no comparison to headphones or built in speakers when listening to a song it should fill the room and have perfect reproduction like what is experienced with the Zeppelin; have had some issues with airplay starting up the speaker but the sound is so good it doesn't bother me.

If you're seriously considering this product, then you've read around the Internet that it is very difficult to set up. While this may be the case, a slight learning curve gives way to a pristine audio experience. The midrange is clear, and confident bass delivers only satisfaction. The Zeppelin is an impressive fixture to any room, and it's worth noting the 'classy' black matte cloth cover and elegant form on the whole. As for the AirPlay, there are clearly some kinks that need to be worked out here; every so often the sound will momentarily crackle or completely cut out, however, this may be a problem common to all AirPlay devices. I remain disappointed that the included remote control is of seemingly low quality plastic (B&W would be better off not bothering with the remote at all), but with AirPlay remotes are obsolete to some degree, anyway. At around $600, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air is not a steal, but fine audio and an overall luxurious experience deliver what you expect for the price tag.

Nothing else looks or sounds like Bowers & Wilkins speakers. Completely fills a room with warm detailed sound, I wouldn't play music on anything else now.

    I have purchased 3 Zepplin's only to have EVERY single one of them fail. Further, they require proof of purchase for any type of s I have purchased 3 Zepplin's only to have EVERY single one of them fail. Further, they require proof of purchase for any type of service - even if I have sent the device in before (and they have the records on file).

    Overall, the audio quality is superb - no argument there. However, B&W's firmware leaves little to be desired. Look at the reviews on Amazon (30% have had problems). The products do not have a decent life expectancy. These devices are heavy and expensive to ship back to the factory.

    After numerous calls and frustration just trying to get a very expensive device repaired, I have not other choice than to give this company a poor rating in product quality and customer service.

  • AirPlay Super, sound, hmm

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    In contrast to many other frustrated buyers I didn't have ANY problems in setting up the Zeppelin Air and connecting it to my wire In contrast to many other frustrated buyers I didn't have ANY problems in setting up the Zeppelin Air and connecting it to my wireless network. I guess I was somehow lucky in that respect. Maybe it helps to choose a "free" frequency for ones WLAN in advance. Setting the Zeppeling up with the App of B&W took 3 minutes and it worked flawlessly ever since.
    My concern is with the sound: despite of all the ravishing critics it IS muffled, both when using it via AirPlay and as a soundbar for the TV: with my normal TV- speakers I can for instance hear in a film scene birds twitter and crickets chirr whereas there is absolute silence when listening to the same scene with the Zeppelin Air. Even an exchange by the very helpful German customer service of B&W didn't improve matters. The heights and mids seem thin and as if a blanket covered the music, which saddens me especially because I mainly listen to classic, where you just have to have details and some brilliance in sound in order to be able to enjoy the music! So I'm somehow quite disappointed with the sound on one hand but can't help loving my Zeppelin Air on the other hand, because it is wonderful in every-day use as an AirPlay device that can be controlled from my whole apartment and fills all 70 square meters with ease (and looks stunning, too)!

    It was worth all the money, and i also can take this with me when i move back to europe, i just have to change the wall plug and play my music again since it is dual voltage on this B&W.
