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.
Check out Bowers & Wilkins’ official profile tweet announcing the new B&W Zeppelin below:
