Bowers & Wilkins has launched the latest version of its flagship speaker series, the Zeppelin. Compared to its predecessor generation, Zeppelin is now designed with more modern connectivity to support streaming needs. What are the superior features like?
Features of Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin
According to Bowers & Wilkins, this new Zeppelin model is claimed to be smarter and more flexible. Support for wireless standards like Qualcoom aptX Adaptive and Apple AirPlay 2 is now available, which means it’s easy for both Android and iOS users to stream audio from their devices.
Just like its predecessor, the latest Zeppelin is also equipped with Spotify Connect and can be controlled via the Bowers & Wilkins application. Access to various other streaming services is also provided, such as SoundCloud and Deezer.
Because it is more intended for streaming needs, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin no longer has a port for cable-based audio input. Users can control these speakers via voice commands thanks to Alexa support.
In terms of audio capabilities, Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin comes with two Decoupled Double-Dome tweeters which are claimed to produce high sound that is more accurate and wide. In addition, there is also a 150mm subwoofer for deeper and detailed bass.
Interestingly, Zeppelin will later get an update (around early 2022) to support a feature called Multi-Room. This feature allows users to connect multiple Zeppelins at once, or with other Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Price
The latest generation of Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin has started to be sold to the market at a fairly premium price, which is US $ 799.
