Nothing looks like it. Nothing sounds like it. Critics and listeners agree: Zeppelin Air is a truly remarkable speaker dock, making your music sound richer and more lifelike than you’ve ever heard it before. And with Apple's AirPlay wireless streaming technology built in, you can play it however and wherever you like.
Best dock sound
Zeppelin Air marks a seismic shift in audio quality for speaker docks. Forget tinny treble and feeble bass: play a track through Zeppelin Air, and you'll feel as though you're right at the heart of the performance. From the lightest brush of a cymbal to the mightiest bass line – it's all there, just as the artist and sound engineer intended you to hear it.
Dock or not
Whether you chose to dock your iPhone or iPod or use AirPlay with an iPad, iPhone 5 or computer, Zeppelin Air delivers fantastic, room-filling sound that has to be heard to be believed.
Zeppelin Air's elongated shape isn't just for show. Placing the drive units as far apart as possible aids sound dispersion, helping to create a more open, natural sound. Add in custom-designed mid-range drive units and high-quality tweeters, and the result is a remarkably spacious, room-filling performance.
On the back of every Zeppelin Air are two Flowports, a feature shared in common with Bowers & Wilkins' top-of-the-range hi-fi speakers. The dimples on a Flowport act like the surface of a golf ball, smoothing airflow and reducing turbulence. A steady, smooth flow of air cuts down unwanted noise, and helps make sure that bass is as tight and well-timed as possible.
Digital tracks are simple sequences of code. To turn this code into a signal that speakers can recognise, you need digital-to-analogue converters (DACs for short). Poor quality DACs can lose detail in the conversion process – so it's good to know that Zeppelin Air's audiophile-quality 24bit DACs are some of the best in the business. Meaning the sound you hear is that much closer to the sound of the original performance
