”This Zeppelin showcases plenty of élan and an audio performance I’d class as terrific.” ’Trusted Reviews’ – 5-Stars – Highly Recommended

Return of a game changer

The original Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin redefined what could be expected of an iPod speaker. Stunning style met with typical Bowers & Wilkins class-leading sound quality to produce a speaker that took the market by storm. The latest Zeppelin takes the same, timeless ‘cigar’ silhouette style and bespoke drive unit configuration but adds the latest, wireless connectivity.

Bowers & Wilkins speakers
Widely regarded as one of the finest speaker manufacturer’s in the world, Bowers & Wilkins are found in all the best places, from premium car brands to Abbey Road studios. No surprise, then, that the speakers in the Zeppelin are some of the best in the business. Double Dome tweeters, as used in the 600 Series Anniversary speakers, produce first-rate clarity. FST technology helps give the mid-range superb vocal realism. The bass has its own dedicated woofer, giving this compact speaker a presence of sound beyond its dimensions.

Stream your way
Built into the latest Zeppelin, you’ll find AirPlay 2, Bluetooth aptX Adaptive and direct access to Spotify Connect (Premium account required). This makes it quick and easy to stream music straight from your music device – be it Apple, Android or other Bluetooth enabled music source.

Control your music services under one ‘roof’, with the Bowers & Wilkins Music app
The easiest way to access music on your Zeppelin is via the Bowers & Wilkins Music app. This brings together a wide range of streaming services, all under central control. It’s currently compatible with Deezer, NTS Radio, Qobuz, SoundCloud, TIDAL and TuneIn, with others being added soon. Search for the artist, album or song you want and you’re offered content from all the services you subscribe to. Over time, the app learns your music tastes, helping it tailor the results to best suit you.

Voice control via Alexa
Built-in Amazon Alexa voice control lets you play your favourite music by simple voice command. A first for Bowers & Wilkins, Alexa support makes this a speaker the whole family can use – even if they don’t have a smartphone.

Now with Hi-res playback
The first Zeppelin able to play Hi-res music files, this stylish design is now able to stream music files up to 24-bit resolution. With more and more music services now offering Hi-resolution music options, there’s never been a better time to go Hi-res.

Multi-room playback*
Due soon, via over-the-air upgrade, the Zeppelin will be able to be used as part of an all-Zeppelin multi-room music system. Alternatively, it will also work as part of a Bowers & Wilkins Formation multi-room system (although not combined in a 2.1 or 5.1 AV configuration). Use the Bowers & Wilkins app to play the same music around your home or different music in separate rooms.

*Coming soon. Target date is March 2022.

Welcome back a design icon and get great sound into the bargain, with the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overkill for my needs Completely overkill for my needs. I purchased to replace my Libratone Zipp (which still works great after 5 years). I work from home and the Zeppelin sits on my desk next to my laptop and sounds fantastic. Set up took a minute or so. I switch between bluetooth from a macbook pro, and spotify connect from my phone, and no issues so far. Obviously not as stereo as a pair of speakers, but as mentioned, it is amusingly overkill as a desktop speaker. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great, sounds great! As bluetooth speakers go to me the Zeppelin is by far the best sounding one around. Nice stereo imaging and a well balanced sound right across the frequency spectrum. Its iconic look might not be to everyone's taste but I love it! The only slight issue I had was setting up the app initially - a little bit fiddly but got there finally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smart Speaker! If you want a smart speaker that sounds like hi-fi this is for you. Wonderful sounds, looks good and works really well. Setting up easy, good support from Tech @ B&W. Excellent demo from Richer Sounds too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I recently visited your Leeds shop to buy a new Bluetooth speaker. on the advice of your staff, i bought a Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin. It is unbelievably good. I had not previously understood the reduction in sound quality caused by Bluetooth. The service I received was excellent and buying the speaker was an enjoyable experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Statement look and sound I have pined after a BW zeppelin since I first saw one at a friends house in 2009. 12 years later I have one in my kitchen and it does not disappoint! It is a statement piece and not something to be hidden away in a corner. The sound absolutely lives up to the billing, filling the room and immersing you in the music. I have really enjoyed re-listening to my favourite artists picking out the individual instruments, it seems equally at home on pop, funk, blues, rock or classical. It is a serious upgrade on my previous wifi speaker, although at the time, I thought that was pretty decent! It is also very easy to use. There is an app which has you set up in 10 minutes (including it updating the speaker software) and you can connect it to accounts like Spotify or Alexa. You can also adjust the equalizer from the app although I've no reason to so far. Overall very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It won't disappoint Having been a previous owner of the one of the original Zeppelin speakers, when this new iteration was made available, I straight away wanted one. I remember when I first unboxed the original Zeppelin and was immediately aware from the weight and the quality materials that were being used that you are dealing with a premium product, and this new iteration is no different. The initial setup of the device was challenging as I had issues straight away with it connecting to my network and no matter what I tried, from factory resets to a more ‘last resort’ router setup changes, and nothing seemed to work. However, after getting frustrated for over an hour with this, I tried one last factory reset which to my delight worked and the Zeppelin was able to connect and I managed to complete the setup process without any other issues. Normally I would be complaining more about these sorts of things, but having dealt with various wireless products in the past from different manufacturers, these sorts of issues are common and is something I have learnt to live with. The B&W application is decent and easy to navigate around. Being predominantly Apple Music person however did pose an issue though, as the system doesn’t (yet) support Apple Music and the only way to play music from my apple music library was via Airplay which worked just as well which takes me to audio quality. When spending around £700 on a speaker you would be expecting some quality sound, and the Zeppelin doesn’t disappoint. One of the first things I notices was just how loud the speaker can get for its size. I had it mainly on around 50% volume most of the time, and that was more than enough and can easily fill a large room. The sound stage of the speaker is probably the width of the speaker itself and would have been nice if it was wider, maybe by having the speakers set at an angle outward but it’s not a showstopper at all. When listening to different all kinds of different genre you are greeted with bright and clear sound with a tight punchy bass, but its clear from the onset that this speaker better suits genre like Pop, Dance and Classical but if you are a predominantly Rock listener, I think there are better alternatives out there. All in all, I think this speaker is awesome, from its build quality to the sound it generates. Yes its expensive, but you will be hard to find a stylish speaker that sounds this good for the same sort of price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zeppelin Review This is an amazing speaker, the design is unique & a real statement piece. Straight out of the box it oozes quality as you would expect from Bowers & Wilkins. Its a big speaker so please check the dimensions for where you want to place it. The instructions provided give you a QR code for there app & also instructions on how to link to spotify. On there app you can assign it to any room in your house if you want multiple speakers & you can add all your favourite music streaming services very easily. Also this can be controlled using Alexa which no doubt most people will use. Assigning to Spotify was easy to set up as well. The sound is absolutely amazing, deep bass & spot on treble as you would expect from B&W & these can be adjusted via there app to your taste. It really is a very rich & superb sound & also so easy to use. A great speaker & I highly recommend it.
