Bowers & Wilkins launches wireless Zeppelin speaker
British audio brand Bowers & Wilkins announced the availability of a new product in its Zeppelin line of speakers. The Zeppelin Wireless speaker is built with an “instantly recognizable silhouette,” B&W said in a statement.
While the performance will be of improved quality compared to previous Zeppelin speakers, the build of the product is where most of the changes are found, B&W said. The material and shape of the subwoofer have been altered with a larger 6.5-inch driver and an ultra-long voice coil to allow deep bass to be played at higher volumes. Further, decoupled double-dome tweeters and FST midrange drivers produce clean, dynamic audio that caters to all styles of music, B&W explained.
“As beautiful as it is sonically capable, its sweeping contours command aesthetic appreciation while also producing a reassuring room-filling sound,” B&W said in a statement. “Zeppelin Wireless is as comfortable relaying crystal clear music from the bookshelf as it is the centerpiece of any room, while the improved sound quality creates an acoustic experience that belies its size.”
The Zeppelin Wireless speaker also has a new reinforced cabinet that has been redesigned with a front fascia that is 50 percent thicker than the previous version, B&W said.
The speaker includes Airplay, Bluetooth aptX, and Spotify Connect support, and the Control App has been updated and is available in the on iOS, Android, Mac, and PC.
The new Zeppelin Wireless is available now on the Bowers & Wilkins website and retails for $699.99 ($799.99 in Canada).
