Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin gets new streaming-oriented version

With each passing year, streaming music becomes part of more people’s daily routine. With this in mind, Bowers & Wilkins, founded in 1966 in England by John Bowers, is launching a new generation of its iconic B&W Zeppelin speaker, which now supports wireless music streaming.

Originally the B&W Zeppelin case was released in 2007 to be used in conjunction with Apple’s DAP (Digital Audio Player) iPod. After some time, “Zeppelin Mini” (2009) and “Zeppelin Air” (2011) were released.

Developed with a focus on wireless music streaming, the new B&W Zeppelin supports Bluetooth audio codec aptX Adaptive Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 e Spotify Connect. However, although the focus is on wireless connections, the product has a port USB-C for updates.

Through the Bowers & Wilkins Music App, you can access various music streaming services such as Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Soundcloud and TuneIn. In addition, the speaker of the British audio equipment developer also has Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, to facilitate its use.
