Bowers & Wilkins classic Zeppelin speakers get new life

British Bowers & Wilkins is now launching its Zeppelin wireless speaker. The speaker is a reinterpretation of the company’s classic Zeppelin speaker from 2007 which was an Ipod doll.

The new Zeppelin is a complete stereo system with “reference quality” drive steps in the speaker cabinet to the left and right of a subwoofer. Bowers & Wilkins promises a rich stereo sound that fills the room and is said to be unparalleled in the market. This is regardless of whether the source is a wirelessly connected device or a streaming service.

The wireless speaker also has built-in ambient lighting with dimmer and support for Airplay 2, aptx Adaptive Bluetooth and Spotify Connect. It can also be controlled through the Bowers & Wilkins Music app which provides direct access to a range of streaming services such as Deezer,, Qobuz, Soundcloud, Tidal and Tunein. There is also support for the voice assistant Alexa.

In early 2022, the plan is also to release a software update that gives the speaker multiroom capacity, so it will be compatible with both other new Zeppelins and wireless speakers from the Bowers & Wilkins Formation series.

Zeppelin is available now in two variants, a dark (midnight gray) and a light (pearl gray), via Bowers & Wilkins web page and selected retailers. Price is SEK 7,998.
