Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless

Bowers & Wilkins has launched a new Zeppelin speaker, eschewing the physical Lightning connector for wireless streaming through AirPlay. The Zeppelin Wireless retains the football-esque shape as earlier models in the series, offering Bluetooth AptX and Spotify Connect connectivity. Bowers & Wilkins mentions that while the design has remained intact, every element has been redesigned to provide the most immersive soundstage "possible from a single speaker system."

The speaker features a 6-inch subwoofer with an "ultra long-throw voice coil" that delivers detailed, accurate bass, along with two 25mm double-dome tweeters and two 90mm mid-range drivers, all housed in a retooled vibration-free cabinet reinforced with fiberglass. The new digital signal processor, which is twice as powerful as its predecessor, converts all audio to 192kHz/24bit, delivering an enhanced dynamic range and greater clarity.

You'll also be able to set up, control the volume and music playback, and manage the settings on the speaker with the Bowers & Wilkins Control app. For those interested in plugging in, the speaker offers a 3.5mm audio jack.

The Zeppelin Wireless costs £499 in the UK, and $699 in the US. The speaker is available for purchase online, and will be heading to store shelves starting October 15.
