Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) brings over 40 years of studio speaker design experience to the Zeppelin, and it shows in both the unique look and the outstanding performance of this iPod/iPhone speaker system. You'll enjoy extraordinarily detailed sound, with clear highs, accurate midrange, and full, natural bass more like what you'd expect from separate stereo components than an all-in-one speaker system.
A sturdy, stainless steel arm holds your iPod out from the Zeppelin's body. This lets you grasp the player in your hand naturally when you're using its click wheel or touch screen to queue up songs. The system's tone-shaping controls are available right from your iPod's main menu when you place your player on the dock, a new option called "Speakers" appears on its screen. A palm-sized remote gives you control over basic functions like volume, play/pause, and track skip.
The Zeppelin sports an attractive chrome finish and a unique docking arm that holds your iPod.
Built for superior sound quality
The Zeppelin's unusual shape isn't just for good looks. Its rounded, tapered ends minimize the cabinet surface area around the built-in speakers, which helps ensure smooth response and a wide, spacious soundfield. A dampening layer sandwiched between the cabinet's stiff polymer inner casing and heavy stainless steel cover eliminates sound-muddying vibrations.
An internal subwoofer with rear-firing ports is driven by its own amplifier for accurate bass.
Advanced driver technology
This system uses a pair of aluminum dome tweeters to produce crystal-clear highs, and rigid glass fiber woofers for accurate midrange detail. A built-in Kevlar-reinforced subwoofer with back-firing ports delivers deep, rich bass. Three high-performance amplifiers one for the left channel, one for the right, and a dedicated bass amp reproduce your favorite music with authoritative, room-filling sound.
From the review Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Lifts the Party
"The Zeppelin created an expansive sound stage. The effect is difficult to describe, but to me it sounded like the music had room to breathe. Sounds that were supposed to be concentrated in different channels were clearly separate, while blended ensembles presented a smooth spread from left to right."
