Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Review – Wireless Speaker

The Zeppelin from Bowers & Wilkins is a good speaker for music. A little warmth and boom can be heard in the high-bass area, and the sound profile is balanced, making it perfect for listening to a wide range of audio content. Its companion app allows you to change the bass and treble, allowing you to personalize the sound to your preferences. The deep thump and rumble of bass-heavy music, such EDM or hip-hop, cannot be felt, however, because of the lack of low bass. However, even at its highest volume, the speaker is loud enough to fill sizable spaces with music without much compression, so even as the volume is increased, the audio quality doesn’t suffer. Additionally, it has a large and spacious soundstage.

The Zeppelin has built-in support for aptX Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay 2, and Spotify Connect, as well as access to almost the entire music library of the rest of the world through its streamlined, organized, and responsive Music control software. The Amazon Alexa speech assistant is also supported. And the appliance is still as aesthetically pleasing, solidly constructed, and substantial as it ever been. The sound is the best part—better it’s than before. No matter the musical genre, the Zeppelin delivers a wide, well-defined, and constantly fascinating sound, but it cannot replace a real pair of stereo speakers.

Price and Availability

Despite its all-in-one design, the Zeppelin can drive an astounding amount of firepower and can be rather loud. Expect the digital signal processing (DSP) to engage at maximum volume levels and somewhat reduce the low frequencies and peaks. Due to the speaker’s lengthy build, we had anticipated for a better sense of stereo separation; but, from a regular listening distance, it sounds like a mono speaker even if you can hear both the left and right channels.

Sound Quality

Sound Quality

If you give the Zeppelin the best materials to work with—nice, in formation-rich high-res files from wherever you prefer to acquire them—it almost always gets everything right. Additionally, in some style.

For instance, it strikes a particularly well-judged tone balance. It’s a smooth and cogent voyage, with nothing overplayed and nothing understated, from the top of the frequency range (which is bright and assaulting but never vulgar) to the bottom (which is authentically deep and well disciplined when it comes to attack and decay of notes). A staggering amount of material has been uncovered, and even the most fleeting of details are detected and reported. This amount of focus may come off as “prissy” in certain speakers, but the Zeppelin makes it all sound as natural and unforced as possible.

    Overall Experience:

    As I reviewed The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin makes lofty promises as I feel, The Zeppelin presents itself in a pleasingly clear, full, and expansive manner, yet it is outclassed in terms of pure musicianship. Despite its all-in-one construction, the Zeppelin can drive an astounding amount of firepower and can be rather loud.
