Zeppelins were once fairly common and were considered the first reasonable air-based transportation. One day in 1937, the Hindenburg zeppelin suffered a major accident while trying to dock in New Jersey. While jets have replaced zeppelins as a mode for flying, the B&W Zeppelin and their new Zeppelin Mini are speaker systems for the iPod that offer unmatched acoustic transparency to deliver uncompromising sound output from your docked iPod. These speakers fill the air of any room with the best possible audio than any other iPod speaker can match.
Bowers & Wilkins’ iconic Zeppelin redefined what could be expected from an iPod speaker system. Digital music needn’t be harsh, brash, or unpalatable – it can be delivered in glorious high fidelity. Plus, the device that provided this amazing sound could be a thing of beauty. Two years and an unprecedented collection of glowing review and prestigious awards later, Zeppelin Mini joins Zeppelin.
Zeppelin Mini attains the same high standards in sound quality and design set by Zeppelin, but in a more compact form. It is reduced in size, not in sound, and has amazing volume levels for such a diminutive package.
It’s ideal for lounges just like its larger sibling, but it can easily be slotted into a bedroom, kitchen, or student digs.
Key differentiating features include an updated docking arm. On the original this innovative solution worked incredibly well, allowing hassle-free mounting of any iPod, and easy access to Apple’s user-friendly interface. These qualities remain, but the addition of USB connectivity allows Zeppelin Mini to bypass the analogue output stage of any iPod, providing access to the very best digital sound an iPod has to offer.
From this beneficial acoustic starting point Bowers & Wilkins’ decades of experience producing the very best speakers for demanding customers such as Abbey Road Studios, and advanced Digital Signal Processing combine to create a sonic experience that belies the compact stature of Zeppelin Mini.
While zeppelin airships are less commonplace, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin iPod speaker series assert that these uncommon speakers transcend iTunes and MP3 files up from the common and into the rare. If you’re seeking the best possible speakers for listening to your iPod, the B&W Zeppelin and Zeppelin Mini will make your spirits fly.
