Music listening habits have come a long way since Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin speaker dock came out eight years (!) ago in 2007. The overhauled Zeppelin ditches the dock and adds Bluetooth—which is pretty much exactly what the thing needed.
The new Zeppelin Wireless is hardly a spec bump. The hardware has been completely overhauled. In addition to a slightly larger footprint, the company says the chassis is more rigid now, which will allow you to play at louder volumes without getting unwanted noise from the case itself.
Inside, speaker has five drivers, featuring two tweeters at the left and right points, two mid-range drivers, and then a woofer smack in the middle. It’s a clever design that works a bit like a soundbar to simulate a stereo setup from a single piece of hardware.
