First introduced in 2007 as the ultimate iPod dock, the Zeppelin is returning in 2021 bettersounding, better-looking and smarter than ever
- The Music You Love, Instantly: Zeppelin can stream from Apple® AirPlay 2®, Bluetooth aptX™ Adaptive and Spotify Connect – plus the Bowers & Wilkins Music App.
- Driven by Excellence: The Zeppelin uses drive units shared with proprietary Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker designs. Nothing else comes close.
- Connected, Smart, Intuitive: Zeppelin has Alexa built-in. Just ask for your favourite song. It’s upgradeable too, so as new services appear, you’re covered.
- Hi-Res Sound: With built-in access to a wide range of streaming services, you can enjoy your favourite music in up to 24-bit high-resolution quality from Deezer, Qobuz, TIDAL and more. You can access podcasts and radio stations too, all with seamless control via the Bowers & Wilkins Music app.
Engineered for performance
The new Zeppelin is a complete stereo system in one component, drawing on Bowers & Wilkins unrivalled expertise in premium loudspeaker design for both studios and the home. It features reference quality drive unit technologies arranged in dedicated left and right speaker assemblies around a central, large subwoofer, all powered by 240W of amplification. The result is room-filling stereo sound no singlebox rival can match.
Every generation of Zeppelin has been the best-sounding system of its era. The new Zeppelin, by combining proven drive unit technology with its new high-resolution streaming platform, is simply the best yet. The overall result is an exceptional musical performance whether from a wirelessly connected source or via a streaming service.
Distinctive, innovative design
For over 15 years, each new generation of Zeppelin has been a leader in beautiful and unique design in its class – and, like every Bowers & Wilkins design, its shape is defined by acoustics.
Available in two finishes, one dark (midnight grey) and one light (pearl grey), the all-new and completely redesigned Zeppelin also includes switchable, dimmable ambient lighting to create a ‘halo’ effect on to its metal pedestal stand.
The Music You Love, Instantly
If you want to stream music from your mobile device, tablet or computer, the new Zeppelin includes both AirPlay 2 and aptX Adaptive Bluetooth, making it suitable for both iOS and Android users. Spotify fans can also enjoy the convenience of Spotify Connect, ensuring both high-quality sound and convenient, easy operation. And best of all, the new Zeppelin can also be controlled via the Bowers & Wilkins Music App, which gives instant access to a host of streaming services including Deezer, Last.fm, Qobuz, Soundcloud, TIDAL and TuneIn.
Connected, Smart, Intuitive
The new Zeppelin offers Alexa built-in: no need for any external components. Simply ask for the song you want to hear, and your Zeppelin will oblige. If you prefer, your Zeppelin can be operated by physical buttons on the top rear of its elegant enclosure.
Zeppelin has also been engineered to last. Its powerful digital ‘brain’ can be upgraded over time, with multiroom capability planned for introduction in early 2022. That will make it compatible with both other new Zeppelins in a multiroom environment or, if you prefer, a multiroom system based on Bowers & Wilkins own Formation range of high-resolution wireless speakers.
