Last October, British audio brand Bowers & Wilkins launched the Zeppelin Wireless. Nearly a year later, it introduces the Zeppelin Wireless in white, offering a lighter complementary color to the original black speaker. The Zeppelin Wireless white has been created to appeal to design enthusiasts who prefer a more neutral color tone.
Like its counterpart, the Zeppelin Wireless white is fitted with five new drive units and features two Double Dome tweeters as found in Bowers & Wilkins award-winning CM Series of Hi-Fi speakers, while the two-midrange drivers benefit from FST technology. This approach to drive unit design is also found in Bowers & Wilkins flagship 800 Series Diamond.
The reinforced cabinet has also been redesigned to reduce vibrations in order to provide a solid platform from which the drive units can work. Along with a front fascia 50 percent thicker than the previous version, specially designed glass fiber ribs strengthen the cabinet.
Thanks to Digital Signal Processing (DSP) twice as powerful as its predecessor, Zeppelin Wireless white creates a more detailed and refined sound. The improvement in audio performance is complemented by a trio of connectivity options in the form of AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX and Spotify Connect—meaning a wealth of audio options is only a few taps away. The Bowers & Wilkins Control App, updated on the launch of the Zeppelin Wireless in black, is available via iOS, Mac and PC.
The Zeppelin Wireless white will be available August and priced at around $700 each.
