In October 2015, British audio brand Bowers & Wilkins launched the Zeppelin Wireless to critical acclaim. Nearly a year on, it introduces the Zeppelin Wireless in white, offering a lighter complementary color to the original black speaker. The Zeppelin Wireless white has been created to appeal to palette purists and design enthusiasts who prefer a more neutral color tone. With this refreshed look, Bowers & Wilkins offers the same exceptional sound quality the brand is heralded for, boasting the same instantly recognizable silhouette.
Like its counterpart, the Zeppelin Wireless white is fitted with five completely new drive units and features two Double Dome tweeters as found in Bowers & Wilkins award-winning CM Series of Hi-Fi speakers, while the two-midrange drivers benefit from FST technology. This unique approach to drive unit design is also found in Bowers & Wilkins flagship 800 Series Diamond, and helps Zeppelin Wireless white deliver lifelike vocals and instrument sounds. A new, larger 6.5” subwoofer with ultra-long voice coil allows deep bass to be played at impressive volume.
The reinforced cabinet has also been redesigned to reduce vibrations in order to provide a solid platform from which the drive units can work. Along with a front fascia 50% thicker than the previous version, specially designed glass fiber ribs strengthen the cabinet in all the right places.
Thanks also to Digital Signal Processing (DSP) twice as powerful as its predecessor, the Zeppelin Wireless white creates a more detailed and refined sound, making it a truly enhanced listening experience. The improvement in audio performance is complemented by a trio of connectivity options in the form of AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX and Spotify Connect. The Bowers & Wilkins Control App, updated on the launch of the Zeppelin Wireless in black, is available via iOS, Mac and PC, making it easier and more convenient to control volume and playback functions.
The Zeppelin Wireless white one-box solution is as comfortable creating a room- filling sound from a bookshelf, as it is at the centerpiece of a room, while the improved sound quality creates an acoustic atmosphere that belies its size. The Zeppelin Wireless white will be available August and priced at $699.99.
