Zeppelin – what’s playing on yours?

There’s nothing we like more at Bowers & Wilkins’ London offices than racing in first thing in the morning, plugging an iPod into the office Zeppelin hitting ‘shuffle songs’ and seeing what comes up.

All of our music is stored in wonderful Lossless-quality audio obviously, so we get the very best out of the Zeppelin. This is one of the benefits of still using an older generation 160GB iPod Classic.

Here’s the first five that greeted us today.

  • Perfect Timing – Drive by Truckers
  • Heart Attack And Vine – John Hammond Jnr
  • Like A Rolling Stone – Bob Dylan
  • Danny & Dusty – Let’s Hide Away
  • Spare Parts II – Tom Waits

Let us know your first five in a comment below. We’ll give away three months full membership to Society of Sound to any that particularly catch our eye. No cheating now!

    Hi Wouter,
    the reference to the older model was alluding to their size and therefore the capacity to hold more music. They do, of course, still play lossless audio!

    Loving My Zeppelin

  • simon says:

    fugazi-returning the screw
    first five on an almost full 120gb classic

  • Jeff Newton says:

    Loving hearing Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” on my MM-1’s and P5 phones and also the classic James Taylor’s Best Of album with repeated of listen’s to Mexico and Your Smiling Face. All lossless, it’s the only way for proper music. Keep MP3’s for Boyozone and Eastlife.

  • Tomek Jankowski says:

    Recently, as the addition to my standard set of music tracks, I’m running Brian Eno’s Bloom App (available on iTunes) on my iPhone 3GS. My personal favorite composer made iPhone create music on its own, coming up with a new, unique piece every time you run it… beautiful, ambient music with nice visual add-ons. Truly amazing audio-visual experience!

  • Keven says:

    Thomas Newman- Composer. Soundtracks for Shawshank Redemtion, Road to Perdition and Meet Joe Black. Ipod Mini on Apple Lossless. Lights out and a red wine after a hard day.

  • Guy Jackson says:

    Intruder Alert – Lupe Fiasco Feat. Sarah Green
    New Love Grows on Trees – Peter Docherty
    Filthy/Gorgeous – Scissor Sisters
    Beautiful Day – U2
    Rememo – Kings of Leon

  • Chris Hall says:

    1. Peter Frampton – Lying from Live in Detroit
    2. Cream – Crossroads from Albert Hall (reunion)
    3. Doyle Bramhall II – Away We Go Away
    4. Andrea Bocelli – Mattinata
    5. Def Leopard – Day After Day

    Love my Zepplin Mini!

  • charles thompson says:

    Kraftwerk – autobhan!!

  • Tarzipan says:

    Peaches – The Stranglers
    Teardrop – Massive Attack
    Cannonball – The Breeders
    I Wanna Be Your Dog – The Stooges
    Dirty Old Town – The Pogues

    Rapture bought on by the heady combination of my Zeppelin and 120GB Classic! I actually think I might just LOVE the sales guy (KRCS we had shop rockin to Peaches, The Stranglers) he recommended the Zeppelin, my decision instantly made…. Everything’s Shmooove, Hey that’s Shmooooove!

  • UserName says:

    I bought a Zepplin today to replace a Soundock2.

    Dire Straights – Sultans of swing
    Aphex Twin – Windowlicker
    Muse – Undisclosed Desires
    Noisia – Block Control
    Pendulum – Another World

    I have to say though, the Bose has a more detailed sound. I love the B&W sound, I still have DM601 Mk1’s as reference monitors. It’s warm, involving and full of character, but i do like the high resolution sound of the Bose
