Bowers & Wilkins’ New Zeppelin Wireless

Bowers & Wilkins, in their uncompromising pursuit of acoustic excellence have released an updated Zeppelin, some eight years after the original.

Geoff Matthews, CEO of B&W's Australian distributor Convoy, told StereoNET:

The new Zeppelin Wireless has the same instantly recognisable silhouette as the original Zeppelin, but every element of the speaker has been redesigned to deliver superlative audio performance; once again redefining what is possible from a single speaker system.

With five completely new drive units, Zeppelin Wireless features two Double Dome tweeters, two midrange drivers and a new, larger 6.5” subwoofer with ultra-long voice coil, allowing deeper bass to be played at impressive volumes.

With an all new, twice as powerful DSP, Zeppelin Wireless creates a more detailed and refined sound, making it a truly enhanced listening experience. Bringing Zeppelin Wireless up to date with today's connectivity options, AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX and Spotify Connect are all now included. There's also a Bowers & Wilkins Control App (iOS, Android, Mac and PC) so now it’s easier and more convenient for you to control volume and playback functions for the ultimate easy listening experience.

Finally, while respecting the visual appeal of the original Zeppelin, the new Zeppelin Wireless uses a redesigned and reinforced cabinet to reduce vibrations, providing a solid platform for the drivers. The front fascia is 50% thicker than
the previous version, with specially designed glass fibre ribs that strengthen the cabinet in all the right places.

Matthews continued:

The iconic Zeppelin gets its most comprehensive makeover yet, turning it into a more accomplished, flexible and compelling wireless audio solution. The king of docking speakers makes way for the king of wireless speakers.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless will be available from November 2015 for $999.95 RRP.

Bowers & Wilkins is distributed in Australia by Convoy.
