The biggest change to the most recent Zeppelin is that the speaker now has Amazon alexa voice assistant On board, which means it can function as part of a smart home. The new Wireless Zeppelin is still a stereo speaker, and includes two decoupled double-dome tweeters from the 600 Anniversary Series, two midrange drivers, and a central 150mm bass driver.

Zeppelin offers several connection options, including Wi-Fi (Airplay 2, spotify connect And Amazon Multi-Room Music Coming in 2022) and aptX bluetooth. It is compatible with existing Build series and uses the Bowers & Wilkins Music App streaming services Like Qobuz, SoundCloud, Tidal and TuneIn. if you are one rune Users, sadly the company says the speaker will not be made rune ready, but B&W can still connect via AirPlay.


The Zeppelin is available in two finishes, Midnight Gray and Pearl Grey, and includes switchable lighting effects on the metal pedestal stand. The speaker is also wall-mountable.

At $799 the Zeppelin is more expensive than most Bluetooth speakers, but as a fan of the previous versions I expect it to sound great for the money. It’s a shame there’s no analog input for connecting a turntable or other device.
