Hands on with Zeppelin Air

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air - Lifestyle

Zeppelin Air is about to launch, and we are obviously very excited about it. We are confident it’s the best iPod speaker Bowers & Wilkins has yet produced, and that its breathtaking sound quality, coupled with Apple’s AirPlay technology will make it a huge success.

But it’s not just us that are excited about it, as you can see from these hands-on previews from Stuff, Pocket Lint and Electric Pig.

    Until the arm can be removed NO Zepellin for me. Why call it Zeppelin Air if the empty arm still sits there for no reason. If the reason is the LED light indicator information is displayed on the docking arm itself, keep it on the speaker just as a small LED but no need for the ugly arm.

    I’m in total agreement with Pual, I would love to buy a Zeppelin Air, but, just can’t stand the ugly arm that sticks out and ruins the great shape of it, why, why, why would you leave this arm on, or not make it detachable if its an air machine?

  • Pual Perberus says:

    I always said that the arm was terrible and not needed. Now Apple has changed the connector and people that bought the Zeppelin are stuck. PLEASE, make it with NO ARM so we can use teh Air Play.

    I’ve read that there are people who have successfully removed the Zepp’s docking arm, and also understand that B&W won’t provide any instructions. Does anyone have any guidance for me before I begin surgery? Don’t need the docking arm, never needed the docking arm, and now too tired at looking at it.
