The goal into creating the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless is essentially to make the device invisible from an acoustic standpoint. The speaker cones are being held in a surroundless suspension. This will enable the device to deliver greater control to the sound it emits as it ensures the chassis to add nothing to the sound of the driver units. Simply put, the design makes you hear what the artists want you to hear.
The Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless is Beautiful in Both Looks and Sound Quality
Looking at the design of the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless, some may even point out that there are some wires and screws that were used in the first Zeppelins. But apart from that notion, just about everything for this device is entirely new. It was built from the same studio-quality DNA as those found in the B&W’s flagship loudspeakers (which are the 800 series). It even uses the same Fixed Suspension Transducer (FST) technology that is found in its mid-range drivers.
At the far edge of the Zeppelin Wireless outer exterior, on either side, there’s a pair of 25-millimeter tweeters. These create a delightfully clear treble. The iconic shape of the speakers come into play with its driver placement. As with the 800 Series, this gives the tweeters a limited airspace to work around with.
The cassis, on the other hand, is not exactly the same design as with the first Zeppelin. There are some places wherein the enclosures are about 50-percent thicker. However, it all boils down to an aeronautical engineering analytical tool which is called the Fine Element Analysis. This was used to measure the vibration of the device’s internal elements. Due to this analysis, the new Zeppelin had the twin flow ports removed which was supposedly located at the rear of the chassis from the first model.
So what does this mean? It means that the device will operate like a completely sealed unit. When it operates, there are only a few, smaller micro ports that are hiding beneath the grill located at the front of the unit.
Even though the design will look as though the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless delivers a weaker sound, it does not. In fact, there is a lot of power coming out of the speakers. The beefy bass is beautifully controlled and the extra levels are terminated precisely and beautifully. Hence, the looks and sound performance of this device is a must-have for music listeners everywhere.
